Moves That Don’t Cost The Earth

Welcome to On The Dot Removals Bristol

At On The Dot Removals Bristol our mission is to provide an affordable, efficient and friendly removal service which is both socially responsible and has minimal impact on the environment. We specialise in domestic  house removals and commercial office relocations nationally and across Europe

As removal service providers we recognise our work is with people who are moving through a potentially stressful time of their lives. Fully aware of this, we take pride in our responsibility to offer exceptional support during this period. It is of fundamental importance to us that we build rapport and trust with each individual person we work with from the moment you contact us through to the day of your move. We take our work seriously, as moving house is a serious business.

As European Green Capital in 2015, Bristol is renowned for its forward-thinking culture and environmental policies and practices. And yet for so many people moving home in Bristol, removal companies aren’t what spring to mind when it comes to reducing their own carbon footprint. We want to change this by putting environmentally responsible removals on the Bristol map.

  • I would recommend On The Dot without hesitation. The guys were absolutely fantastic and super quick too. Will definitely use OTD again in the future!

    Absolutely brilliant, second time I've moved with these guys and wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Jamel was great – really nice bloke who just got on with everything. Did an amazing job of getting the van into the tight road by our new house in belting rain, and made it a far less stressful experience than it could have been. Didn't cost the Earth, either.

  • Would 100% recommend this company. I have tried several removal companies and these guys were by far the best. Great communication from start to finish. They responded promptly to my queries and sent me regular updates on the day of the collection. The movers were very friendly and efficient. They truly care about their customers.

    We used these guys for a move recently. They were all friendly, arrived on time, worked really hard and were careful with everything. The price was really good too. Honestly can't fault them! Would definitely use them again!

  • Great value for money. Very efficient, the movers were friendly and professional, and managed to move some of our bigger pieces of furniture around tricky spaces easily and without damage. It was a very reasonable price for the service we received, and we would recommend to any of our friends wanting to move in the future.

    On The Dot Removals were simply fantastic, from beginning to the end. The process of receiving a quote and booking the move was simple and easy. Fast communication, including sending a text 30mins prior to the booked time on the day. Arrival was at the agreed time, on the dot 😉 We had a less fortunate experience with a different mover a couple of weeks prior to working with On The Dot, so I was slightly anxious. It was so calming to see how easy moving can be when you have two professionals like Jon and Andy. They made the move from storage to our new house effortless, and well within the allocated time slot. Jon and Andy took great care of our furniture and fragile items also. Talk about stress-free moving...! A Huge Thank You to Jon, Andy and the whole On The Dot Team!

  • On the Dot put my belongings into store, and then returned them 8 months later. They remembered where things went, which was brilliant. The service was outstanding. On time, great communication, friendly and helpful. Totally recommend them to everybody. Took a lot of the stress out of a normally stressful day! Thanks on the Dot!

    On the Dot Removals made the whole painful process of moving so much better. They turned up, on the dot at 8.30 with the strongest, calmest men I've ever met. They packed our stuff with care and attention, were reassuring about the whole process throughout and were just the perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness. There were at the new place waiting for me while I got the keys and they unpacked in half the time. On the Dot were worth every single penny. Moving house was the most stressful thing I've ever done and to have such an incredible team working to help me at the last stage took a lot of the pressure off me. I did consider doing it myself, hiring vans and getting friends to help but I'm so glad I didn't attempt it. I really cannot say enough nice things about On The Dot, they were just amazing.

  • Really good service, both packing and moving. Got us out of our old flat and into storage (playing Tetris to get it all into a quite tight space), and then into the new one (including taking quite a lot of heavy/bulky items up several flights of not very wide stairs) several months later, with minimum fuss and at a very reasonable price. Would use again but hopefully not just yet – I am done moving for the time being, hopefully!

A Greener Approach to Moving Home in Bristol

We only work with reused removals boxes, recycled wrapping paper and biodegradable bubble wrap. All of our staff wear fair trade certified uniforms made from organic materials and we accept the Bristol Pound, which helps support and promote local Bristol businesses and communities.

We also actively encourage lower fuel emissions by offering our customers half price if they are able to utilise one of our empty removal vans on route back from another job (we’ll even go up to ten miles out of our way to get to you). This not only cuts down on our C02 output but offers the chance for our proactive customers to make huge savings on their removal costs.

Choose to have a Free home removal survey and we’ll even cycle over to see you.

A Bristol Removal Company you can rely on

We are committed to offering exceptional customer care at every stage of the removal process, from the moment you speak to us on the phone, through to the big day itself. We will explain every stage of the process and will offer you the package that best suits your needs. We really do want your moving day to be as stress-free as possible.

If you require a smaller move or just need a few boxes shifted, we also offer a Bristol Man with a Van service.




Things to consider when booking a Bristol removals company

When choosing a Bristol removals company there are various things to consider. For a definitive list see 6 tips to choosing the right removal company, but here’s our quick guide:

Q: How long have they been established?

A: On The Dot is a fairly new company, having been established in 2011. Over the years we’ve acquired all the skills and knowledge of how to carry out a full house removal without a hitch.

Q: How large is the company, can they be competitive for both small and large Bristol removals?

A: We’re a small company, with just 3 removals vehicles. This allows us to remain competitive on price for small removals and “man with a van” type services, but also means we can offer very competitive prices for larger 2 and 3 bed house removals.

Q: Do they have all of the necessary equipment to ensure your goods are safely transported?

A: All our removals vans are fully stocked with the standard Bristol removals equipment: blankets, straps, sack trucks etc. We can also supply specialist equipment on request, such as mattress covers, artwork carriers, wardrobe boxes, freezer bags, etc. Please contact us with your requirements.

Q: What insurance do they have in place?

A: All Bristol removals companies should have standard removals insurance in place, however, it’s not compulsory by law and some don’t, so it’s worth checking. We cover for up to £20,000 goods in transit and £1m for public liability.


Q: Can they demonstrate accountability for their work through a transparent and trusted reviews platform such as Google+?

A: We have lots of reviews available to view on Google+. Google+ is a great platform for reviews, as it’s open to everyone to leave their comments and quality checked by Google themselves. Not all review platforms are built the same, so do your research if good reviews are an important factor in making your decision.

Q: How far are they able to travel and what are is the extra fuel charge for this?

A: Generally most of our moves either start or end within Bristol or close by. If we have to travel outside of Bristol, we do add a fuel charge, but generally, we charge fuel at cost price, so there’ll be no nasty surprises.

Q: What are they willing to carry in their removal vans?

A: We will generally carry pretty much anything in our removal vans, as long as it’s not very dirty or illegal and it doesn’t bite. A full list of exclusions can be found in our terms & conditions.

Q: Can they carry out both domestic and commercial removals in Bristol?

A: We mostly carry out domestic home removals and flat removals in Bristol, however, we are happy to quote for office moves and sometimes do collections and deliveries for commercial purposes.

Q: Do they charge VAT?

A: Most Bristol removal companies charge VAT on their prices. More established companies certainly will be VAT registered. Whilst this means you may pay a little more it is likely you will be getting a more experienced service.
