Praise for Nomad International

Customer Reviews

“We asked Nomad International to undertake the shipment of virtually our entire house contents from the North West of England to a tiny village on the Island of Kefalonia. We greatly appreciated their advice and guidance during the pre- removal and planning stage, and are delighted that their door to door service has proven to be just that. Their UK team took care of every aspect of packing and removing our contents from delicate glassware to garden tools. Eight days after departing their depot, our belongings arrived at the front door of our Kefalonia house, the whole consignment delivered on time, with care and without loss or damage. We are so happy to have chosen Nomad for this major operation, and to give our recommendation to this excellent Company”

Mr & Mrs Daynes, Removal from Chester, UK to Kefalonia, Greece, February 2017

“Dear Danny,

I would just like to thank you and your team, both in the UK and here in Crete for the safe and efficient delivery of my goods. I have recommended you to friends and I wouldn’t hesitate to use Nomad again should I need to move in the future.

All the best,”

Mrs Shelagh McGlenn, Removal from County Durham, UK to Crete, Greece, February 2017

“After 16 wonderful years living in Stoupa, Messinia Greece,we found it necessary to relocate back to the UK. In December, after making a list of all our possessions, I asked for a quote to collect and deliver all our goods from Greece back to Manchester UK. The quote was very reasonable and was accepted.

We had arranged to be back in Greece in February for 18 days to organise the removal. Our friends in Stoupa had been collecting packing materials for us and it took us 4 days to box and package everything….4 days later Nomad arrived, as promised, 2 excellent cheerful men and departed for Patras within the hour.

9 days later I had an E-Mail to say the goods had arrived in the Depot in UK and when would it be convenient to deliver them to our address. This morning they arrived as promised, on time and were put exactly where we wanted them by again 2 excellent workmen.

I would like to thank Daniel who kept me informed all the time over the last 3 months exactly what would happen, and it did without a flaw. Also to all the team that collected and delivered my goods, they were great.

I would certainly recommend your service to anyone who is moving from or back to the UK.

Thanks again.”

Mr Peter Haigh, Removal from Stoupa, Greece to Manchester, UK, February 2017

“Dear Taliesen

I wanted to thank and congratulate you and your team on doing such an excellent job for me on both occasions you shipped my possessions between the UK and Greece. The service was of the highest customer-focused standard right from the outset when I contacted Danny for information and a quotation.

The guys did a fantastic job of packing up all the large items and wrapping them in Furnigard, making the whole process completely pain-free for us. They were polite, courteous, professional and fun to have around; nothing was too much trouble.

That you managed to ship my things including electricals, mirrors and other fragile items, clothes and personal effects, 1500 miles across Europe by land without a single item being lost or damaged demonstrates the quality of of your service.

Your driver and the team in Greece were equally accommodating, keeping me informed at every stage of the journey exactly when I might receive my things. On one occasion the truck fell foul of a ferry strike by Greek workers and I was contacted straight away to let me know about the short delay.

Nomad surpassed all expectations at every stage of this potentially stressful event. Thanks to everyone involved.”

Mr Neville Seabridge, Removal to Corfu, Greece (and eventually removal back from Greece to UK, December 2016)

“Good evening Danny and Taliesen

We would first of all like to thank you all for the way in which our goods and chattels were handled during the move to Zakynthos. Everything went very smoothly and I am sorry that the 40 foot lorry was unable to reach to our property due to the small roads in this area where we live, however the team managed to overcome the situation and ‘ferry’ the goods in several trips using the small van. I am sure that this is not the first time this method has been used.

…Once again thank you and your team for all their help and assistance all the way through the experience.  You certainly have  great bunch of folks on your team!!

Kind regards”

Mrs Victoria Morgan, Removal to Zante, Greece, November 2016

PS: we will always recommend your services to any Brits coming out to Greece and also would use your services if we need to purchase anything else from the UK in future.

“Hi Danny,

Me and Jo my wife have got to say, your guys who come and packed us up were first class mate.  I can honestly say all done with ease, they were all brilliant, if you can let the boss know he’s got top blokes on the job.  Let us know when you have an idea of when our stuff will arrive and if you lot need a reference give them my number no probs.

Cheers Danny,

Kevin & Jo Whitmore”

“Hi Danny,

All our stuff unloaded now, the guys this end did a brilliant job, made it all easy.  All top blokes so cheers mate.

All the best,”

Kevin & Joanne Whitmore, Removal to Zakynthos, Greece, November 2016

“Dan!

Belated ‘Thank you’.

You might recall arranging a move back in April for us from South East London to Mastihari on the Dodecanese island of Kos.  We were put in mind of you earlier this week when we saw your Nomad International wagon near our new home.  We took the liberty of taking a couple of photos.  Copy attached.

It reminded us that we had not written to thank you guys for the excellent job you did for us.  We appreciated your telephone calls and emails at the time.   The guys that came to our London flat to do the packing were professional, personable and efficient.  Our goods were delivered (all of them and intact) to our new home before we travelled.   Our friends (who took delivery on our behalf) were impressed by the guys who took care of the delivery in Kos.

Kind regards,”

Chris Davis and Pam Band, Removal to Kos, Greece, April 2016 (Testimonial October 2016)

“Hi Danny

Just to say a big thank you to you and your amazing team for moving our stuff completely intact from UK to Crete. Thanks to your professional team it has been efficient, smooth and without any hassle.

Great work!

Kind regards”

Lorraine Abela, Removal to Crete, Greece, September 2016

“Hello Daniel

I just wanted to say a big thank you for your help in shipping our goods to Crete. Everything arrived safely and in good condition.

I would like to also comment on the delivery guys here who were excellent throughout and were very efficient, friendly and extremely helpful. I’m not sure of their names but I think the older guy was Steve. Please make sure that our thanks to them are passed on as I feel it’s important to give credit where it’s due.

Again, many thanks”

Sue Fleming, Removal to Crete, Greece, June 2016

“We would like to thank Daniel and all the team at Nomad in the UK and in Crete for the excellent service we had from our move from UK to Crete. The team in the UK arrived on time and collected all our furniture and boxes and it arrived in Crete with no problems. The process was excellent and we would certainly recommend Nomad  to anyone thinking of moving to Greece.

Thanking you again Carol and Shaun Adams.”

Mr & Mrs Adams, Removal to Crete, Greece, June 2016

“Hi Danny,

Just a quick note to thank you all for the service you have provided.

Once again many thanks for your excellent service.

Mr Chris Brown, Removal to Corfu, Greece, May 2016

RE: Your team is awesome!

“Hi Danny, just to let you know your team here is so awesome. David and the boys brought the boxes to the place where I am staying and unloaded them for me!
Your company is excellent and will highly recommend you to anyone who needs a mover here!!!
Thank you so so much ☺
Best wishes Chrystabel”

“Hi Chrystabel,
Thank you very much for your kind words. We are lucky to have such a great team over in Greece and I will be sure to pass on your comments to everyone involved from you.
Would it be OK for us to use your comments in a testimonial please for our website?
Kind regards,
Danny”

“Absolutely! Here is some more:
‘From start to finish, Nomad International Movers were responsive, flexible, and incredibly efficient, making the move a pleasure!’
Best wishes
Chrystabel”

Chrystabel Butler, Removal to Patras, Greece, May 2016

“Dear Taliesen & Danny,

Many thanks to you and all at Nomad International who contributed to the safe arrival in Nisyros of our two items of furniture.

Both were so well packaged that it would have been all but impossible for the items to have sustained any damage en-route.

We have been impressed by the professionalism and customer care that has been so evident throughout the past few months.

We would be very happy to use the services of Nomad International again, as and when we require to do so.

We are happy to recommend the company to any and all potential customers and would be pleased if you were to use this text as a recommendation on your website.

Kind regards,”

Mike & Brenda Naylor, transport to Nisyros, Greece, May 2016

“Hi Danny,

I got my packages all 15 off them delivered today – and guess what? I got all 15 packs. But more to the point the packs were all in pristine condition lol they did not even look like they had travelled 2 metres let alone 2000kms.

The lads that delivered, Curtis and Steve were absolutely brilliant. Polite, handled everything really well like it was their own. Even the one marked ‘very fragile’ and then I told them what it was, it is a very expensive lamp, worth several hundred pounds when I bought it sometime a few years back. It is also one of my most favourite possessions.
Initially I was not going to send it due to the high risk of breakage. But I am pleased to say, it arrived without one single scratch or break.

I wanted to let you know I cannot say enough about your service or the guys who actually delivered it. They were absolutely fantastic. I now although I had been recommended to you by friends who had used you also, I too can confidently recommend your service to others.

Thanks a lot for being perfect and say thanks to the guys too.

Many thanks,”

Mr Mark Kristian, Delivery from the UK to Crete, March 2016

“Dear all,

I would just like to thank your team for an excellent job!  I have mentioned how amazing you are on Facebook!!  All arrived to my little house that I have yet to see myself!!  I will promote you as best I can both on Kefalonia & Zakynthos.

Thank you again for making my move so easy!!

All the best”

Gillian MacNaughton, Removal to Zante, Greece, January 2016

“Dear Taliesen,

Things have been very hectic here since the move but I really wanted to write and let you know that the guys who arrived to take our stuff were absolutely FANTASTIC !!!!

Thanks again

Regards,”

Juliet Verri, Removal from Italy to the UK, November 2015

“Hello Danny,

Tracy & Mark delivered my things today – & amazingly they managed to find my home in Heraklion without having to ask directions…A first!

Many thanks to you & your team for a job cheerfully and professionally done. I will definitely be recommending Nomad!

Best regards”

Caroline Codrington, Crete Express shipment to Crete, Greece, November 2015

Thank you very much for taking care of our transfer from Crete to Exeter. All went smoothly, and your team were very friendly and very efficient, couldn’t ask for more.

Kind regards,”

Valerie Viner, Move from Crete, Greece to the UK, October 2015

“Just waved goodbye to Tracy, Mark and Dave with our belongings headed back to the UK. Just wanted to go on record to say what a professional job they did with our packing and what great company they were for the two days they were here. Thank you.

PS they’ve also done a very good marketing job for Crete, we may need your services for the third time in the not too distant future.”

With thanks,”

Liz Hayward, delivery to Crete, Greece, October 2015

“Good morning Danny and Nomad team,

Just to say thankyou for the excellent service we received from Nomad on our move from Preveza back to the UK.   Your teams in Greece and the UK were very professional and so helpful nothing was too much trouble for them especially in Greece having to carry things down from the second floor didn’t seem to bother them at all and they were so pleasant.  All our goods are now unpacked and we are settling down to life in the UK again.  We would not hesitate in recommending your Company to other people so once again thank you.”

Pat & Joe Gill, Removal from Preveza, Greece to UK, September 2015

“Dear Danny

Just a note to confirm safe arrival of everything here in Athens.  All seems to be absolutely fine.  Please pass on our thanks to David Mark who carried out the delivery with super efficiency good humour!

All best wishes thanks again”

Thank you for getting my goods back so efficiently. First class service!! Brilliant.”

Mrs Sally Holt, Move from the Peloponnese, Greece to the UK, September 2015

“Dear Danny,

Thanks to you and your men for dealing so efficiently with our move.  Dealing with nice people makes such a difference at a stressful time!

We would have no hesitation recommending Nomad.

Best regards,”

Mrs Patricia Percy, Removal from Lombardy, Italy to the UK, July 2015

“Dear Danny,

We want to thank you and all your team both in Crete and the UK who have ensured that our recent return move went so smoothly. Everyone we dealt with was helpful, professional and efficient. We would be extremely happy to recommend your service to anyone moving to or from Crete.

Please if you have the opportunity  tell Tracy that I had a lovely hour in the new garden today unwrapping those numerous pots that all arrived all in one piece!!!

Regards”

Mrs Jo Taylor, Removal from Crete, Greece to the UK, July 2015

“Dear Danny,

From the time I contacted you, to eventual shipment and delivery to Andros, everything has gone according to plan.  Not easy when shipping items to Greece.  Finally unpacked this morning and no damage.

All the staff have been extremely efficient, friendly and helpful.  This is how it should be done!

I have no hesitation in recommending your company.

Many thanks and best regards,”

Mr John Wood, removal to Andros, Greece, June 2015

“Dear Danny,

Firstly can I thank you and your team for your professionalism in our furniture move to Kokkino Chorio Crete. We arrived in Crete Sunday lunchtime and Mark contacted us around 4.30 and by 7pm Mark and Tracy had moved all our belongings in to our villa and on unpacking all our furniture etc can happily confirm not one thing was damaged or broken.

You and your team have been great and nothing has been too much trouble. Taking into consideration that there was china and glassware in the consignment I am delighted that everything arrived in perfect condition.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your company.

Please give a big thank you to all your team – well done!!

Kind regards”

Mr David Heel, Removal to Crete, Greece, May 2015

“After several months of fruitless searching for men with white vans to transport a few household items from the UK to our house in Greece, I found Nomad’s website easily on the Internet. The discovery of a very professional and helpful organisation made the operation relatively easy and, I’m pleased to say, comparatively inexpensive. Throughout the process of making up the consignment and collection from northeast England to delivery in Greece, Nomad’s staff were always available to give sound timely advice and support. The consignment arrived on schedule and I was able to track its progress across Europe on a daily basis. I am most grateful to Nomad and would definitely recommend this company to any ex-patriot or holiday home owner contemplating shipping household effects overseas.”

Mr Leslie Fox, Transport to Aegina, Greece, February 2015

“Moving home within the same country is stressful enough, but moving 1500 miles to another country is in a different league. We needed to feel confident in the company we used and, from the very first telephone call with Danny to the arrival of our possessions in Greece, we never felt anything other than that we had made the right choice in using Nomad.

On collection day, the guys were industrious, professional and good company! We had possessions in storage as well as at home, collection from two sites wasn’t an issue. It was a cold and, ultimately damp day but their effort and humour never dropped.

On delivery they were brilliant, no other way of describing them. Our new home in Greece is in a village on top of a hill and at the end of narrow, stepped paths. Access is difficult and the nearest parking is 75m away. Not an issue to your two guys who worked tirelessly all morning.”

Kind regards,

Mr Nigel Elworthy, Removal to Stoupa, Messinia, Greece 2014 (Testimonial January 2015)

“From the moment we first contacted Nomad to enquire about removals to Crete to the day our belongings were delivered to our new home, the company’s service was exceptional.  Nomad really helped to ease the pressure of moving to a new country and to put our minds at rest.  They explained everything clearly and concisely, answered queries promptly and gave us a detailed timetable.  Their staff in the UK and in Crete were utterly professional, diligent and courteous at all times.  We have no hesitation in recommending the company.”

Howard Carr and John Bligh, Removal to Crete, Greece September 2014 (Testimonial December 2014)

“We were very impressed with the support and service that we received from the time we first contacted Nomad and spoke to Danny who gave us lots of good advice about packing, to the guys who came and packed up the house. I”ve never seen packing and removing done in such an efficient and speedy way, the guys were all really helpful and worked really hard.

The people who delivered to our house in Greece were also really helpful, friendly and very efficient.  As we live in a remote area, everything had to be broken down from the trailer into a smaller van and bought up in relays, this was done really well and everyone was friendly, efficient and helpful

I would not hesitate to recommend Nomad to anyone needing a removal service, we were really impressed with the whole service.  We are very impressed by the value for money and feel that we had a great service and excellent value for the money we paid.

Thanks and best regards”

Mrs Sheila Ball, Removal from the UK to the Peloponnese, Greece, 2014 (Testimonial November 2014)

“Dear Danny,

Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for delivering all our stuff to Crete so well and with such friendly service.  Mark and Tracy were really great and so helpful.  Everything is now more or less in its right place.

So our thanks to all of you.

Best wishes,”

Canon Philip and Mrs Frances Lambert, Removal from the UK to Crete, Greece, June 2014

“Hi Danny,

Just wanted to tell you how pleased we were with all aspects of our removal from Crete to the UK and to tell you in our opinion your company are second to none so thank you for all the help we have had from you all at Nomad.

Our very best wishes”

Rod & Diane Rayner, Removal from Kalyves, Crete, Greece to the UK, April-May 2014

“I would like to say a big thank you to all at Nomad International, for the excellent professional, efficient and friendly service that we received recently when transporting our goods (door to door) from England to Crete. Would certainly recommend you and use you again.

Regards”

Mrs Cathie Nicholls, Removal from the UK to Crete, Greece, May 2014

And we will recommend Nomad to all we can.

Best regards, and thanks”

Jeanet Møldrup and Steen Rostgaard, Removal from Denmark to Crete, Greece, April  2014

Just to thank you and the team very much for providing such an excellent service again. All our stuff has arrived safely.

Kind regards”

Mr Simon Britnell, Removal to Crete, Greece, March 2014

“Dear Danny,

One word: EXCELLENT. Thanks a lot for everything, I highly recommend your company to everybody who wants to move from Belgium to Crete.

Perfect service (packing, transport, delivery), perfect communication, highly qualified staff and all this for a very good price.

Many greetings and again, thank you.”

Mr Benny Asselberghs, Removal from Belgium to Agia Galini, Crete, Greece, March 2014

“Dear Nomad,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all your team who were involved in our recent relocation from Crete to France. We had all our possessions delivered on Thursday and have been busy unpacking for the past 4 days. Everything that we have been able to check has arrived intact. A couple of items of furniture which we cannot accommodate in our rental property have been left packed but we will assume that they are also fine as we do not wish to disturb their packing at this time.

The packing was excellent and the team (Mark, Tracy and Graham) involved in moving our possessions from the house, into storage and then onto the truck did a great job although they must have been getting sick and tired of moving it all around.

It all arrived on schedule and David and Rob also did a great job unloading and transferring it into the house.  Not to forget Danny who kept us informed all the way.

A job well done!

Many thanks,”

Jeremy & Marian Lewis, Removal from Crete, Greece to France, February 2014

“To all at Nomad,

Just a note to say a very very big thank you for excellent service and for a stress free move back to the UK from Rhodes. Everyone we had contact with were brilliant but especially Danny who proved very reliable in always ringing us back whenever we had any queries, he is a real asset to the company.

Many thanks again and all the best wishes for Xmas and 2014.”

Jane & Ian Morrison, Removal from Rhodes, Greece to the UK, December 2013

“Tim and I both wanted to thank you for the brilliant service we had from you at Nomad, and how pain free you made our return to the UK.  The team that came to collect our belongings from Kefalonia were brilliant and did such a good job, and the team in the UK were equally good.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Nomad to anyone wishing to leave or return to the UK.  Thanks again for all your help and your excellent service.

Sincerely yours,”

Penny and Tim Cottingham, Removal from Kefalonia, Greece to the UK, testimonial October 2013

“Hi Danny,

This message is to tell you that David arrived today in Fréjus, as it was organised at 9 AM.

We wanted to tell you that your staff in Crete, as in France, have been very professional.  No stress, very well organised and really nice.

We will recommend Nomad around us and to the buyers of our house who will have to organise their removal from England to Crete.

Thank you for your proactivity and the quality of your service.

Best regards,”

Alexandra Yoldjoglou, Removal from Crete, Greece to Fréjus, Southern France, September 2013

“Good morning, we just wanted to say a huge, HUGE, MEGA thank you to both your teams. Rob and Charlie were miracle workers getting all our stuff in the van and the team in Crete were equally amazing delivering our stuff right to the door! Everyone was so calm and unflappable – nothing was too much trouble and everything was possible. Please pass on our thanks and good wishes to everyone. We will definitely be using you again and would recommend you without hesitation.”

Mr & Mrs Pegg, Removal to Crete, Greece, August 2013

“Hi Daniel,

The 4 suitcases and 2 boxes arrived in Crete safely. Just wanted to thank you, Rob and Charlie for the friendly and efficient way you dealt with our business. Charlie was great in the careful and quick way he unloaded the 6 items from our car and guided us to the your office. Rob and you made us feel at ease in the way you both took the trouble to explain how our stuff would be transported to Crete.”

Chris Ttoouli, Crete Express shipment from the UK to Crete, July 2013

As specialists in shipping to Greece and Italy we are often asked to conduct removals on behalf of other removal companies who have clients moving to or from these countries. This testimonial is from a customer of the Whittle Group, who we recently moved from the UK to their new home near Stoupa in Greece:

“Please could you also pass on our thanks to the two men Dave and Mark from Nomad who moved us in here in Greece.  The moving of the wardrobes into the house and up the winding steps involved a balancing act worth remembering and will live with us for some time!  We will fully recommend your services and found you to be professional from start to finish.

Yours faithfully,”

Mr Jolly and Ms Parkinson – Removal to Stoupa, Greece on behalf of the Whittle Group, July 2013

“Dear Danny

We want to thank you, Rob and everyone else connected with our goods’ journey from Crete.  It was all very smooth and easy, everything arrived intact and we appreciated it very much.

Best wishes”

Mr & Mrs Aubrey and Sheila Attwater, Removal from Crete, Greece to the UK, June 2013

“Dear Danny,

I just thought that I had to write and personally thank you and your team for the excellent job you did in transporting our furniture and household items to our new villa in Crete.

I have just returned from Makrygialos after spending a wonderful 12 days unpacking all our furniture etc and can happily confirm not one thing was damaged or broken.  Taking into consideration that there were mirrors, china, glassware etc and lots of solid oak furniture, I am delighted that everything arrived in perfect condition.

You and your team have been wonderful and nothing has been too much trouble – you have collected from me in Bristol, I have had things delivered directly to you in Peterborough and then you have collated everything and delivered it directly to our villa in Crete – wonderful!!  I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your company.

Please give a big thank you to all your team  – well done!!

Best wishes,”

Debbie Wright, Removal to Crete, Greece, May 2013

“Good morning from sunny Crete, I can”t praise your company enough for our move from the UK to Crete, you are collectively first class – efficient, supportive, professional –  you do what you say you will do.  Moving house is fraught enough but once I got Nomad involved it all seemed a bit easier.

Happy days to you all.”

Mr P Nunnen, Removal to Crete, Greece, April 2013

“Dear Danny,

Just a quick email to say thank you for a job well done.

I am very satisfied and NOTHING was broken.  All boxes have been removed to go to recycling and all my goods are packed away.

I hope to stay put so I shouldn”t need your service again but I will certainly let people know about Nomad.

Regards,”

Mr Brian Callow, Removal to Syros, Greece, April 2013

“Dear Danny,

May I just say that my wife was extremely impressed with the courtesy and professionalism of Charlie and Hamish, something which is in very short supply these days.”

Mr Andrew Theaker, Transport to Crete, Greece, March 2013

“Dear Danny,

I just wanted to thank you for all your help in sending the hostess trolley to my cousin in Corfu.   It arrived safely (I think Friday evening) and she said the two people who delivered were most helpful and carried the package upstairs (I didn’t mention this was up two flights of marble stairs!) and that they had taken all the packaging away.

From sending my first inquiry online until delivery I have been very impressed by Nomad International and the excellent prompt and efficient service you provide.

Best wishes”

Ros Whitehead, Shipping to Corfu, Greece, March 2013

“Hello Danny,

We want to let you know that we were very pleased with the service of the Nomad team. The Harley came out without a scratch. Thanks a lot to David and the rest of the team. The boat and other items were fine too of course, but the bike kept my husband awake a couple of days. Now he can sleep again, we are very happy to have chosen Nomad.”

Mrs Bep Roodnat, Removal to Crete, Greece February 2013

“Vera and myself would like to thank your team for the fantastic service you provided in collecting our boxes. I worked in transport for over forty years, and I have to say this was the best service I have ever experienced. A special thanks to your two team members for their hard work and very friendly nature.”

Mr & Mrs Geoff and Vera Milligan, Removal from the Peloponnese, Greece, February 2013

“Hi Dan and Co,

Just want to say a big thanks for a very smooth and successful operation in getting our various chattels and such out to Plaka.  Everyone was highly efficient and may I add very friendly.  The guys who came packed everything really well; almost too well!

Dave and his crew were great. Before their arrival I have to say I was a little concerned as to how it will all go but I need not have been.  They were first rate and very quick in unloading everything.  That little van is far smaller than I expected!!  Whilst not nearly finished in doing everything – perhaps sometime late this summer- I have, after four and half days, unpacked each and every box and put, all but, all away, in one way or another.  Everything was in tip top conditon except one clean break on a cut glass wine glass where the foot had broken in two.  The stem and bowl not at all affected.  However it is a trifle and we would like to thank you and your crew for handling things so efficiently and carefully.

As you will know you are picking up my brother-in-law”s stuff from Bristol on Monday.  My wife Lin will be here by then but I assume it will be Dave and his crew in charge.  Tell Dave I look forward to seeing him again.

Anyway I wanted to thank you on behalf of myself and my wife for handling our stuff so efficiently and with such care.

With thanks,”

Mr Geoff Pollock, Removal to Crete, Greece, January 2013

“Hi Danny,

Just a quick mail to thank you for the excellent service I received from Nomad. My furniture arrived on Saturday with no problems, even on a van small enough to go through the Old Town. The guys who moved the furniture, both in the UK and here in Greece were very friendly and helpful and the detailed information and assistance I received from you together combined to make this a stress free move under sad circumstances.

I will certainly be recommending Nomad in the future.

Best wishes,”

Jill Simmons, Removal to Rhodes, Greece, November 2012

“Dear Nomad team,

Just a quick note to thank you and your team for our furniture! Having been in Greece a year, renovated an old house and managed the complicated systems here it was such a relief to have one thing that was organised beginning to end by someone else.

From signing the initial contract to opening up the stuff we had nothing at all to do… Having heard horror stories from others who have moved here with other companies we were very happy to do nothing and leave it to the professionals.

So thank you, very much. We know you have the best reputation and now we know why!

Best wishes,”

Colin and Joan Bailey, Removal to Crete, Greece, November 2012

“Having used Nomad International for my move to Crete in 2006 and subsequent return to the UK in July this year (2012) I would just like to say a heartfelt “Thank You” to you and your team both on Crete and in the UK for a most efficient, professional and friendly service.

In particular to Sheila (Crete) and to both Rob and Danny here in the UK for their personal involvement in making the removal and after care service a credit to you and the company as a whole;  nothing was too much trouble at any time.

I would recommend your company unreservedly.”

Clive Dyson, Removal from Crete to the UK, October 2012

“Dear Nomad,

We would like to thank you and your team, Rob, Hamish and Charlie for an excellent service provided both in the UK and in Italy.  Your team are excellent ambassadors for your company.   We would highly recommend yourself and your organisation to anyone.  We were pleased that we chose your company for our removal to Italy and would use your services again.

Best wishes and kind regards,”

Patricia and Patrick O”Brien, Removal to Le Marche, Italy, August 2012

“Dear Taliesen, Danny and the rest of the crew,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for the way you handled the delivery of our furniture from Southend to Umbria.

The whole process ran extremely smoothly and there was not a single moment when I had any concerns about the job being done properly.

The team were courteous, efficient and careful when they collected the items from me and although I was not in Italy when it arrived my project manager was in awe of the way the guys handled the job. I think he was particularly impressed when they parked the lorry in the main town and then proceeded to tell him that they had timed the runs to my house at 17 minutes each way and knew exactly how long the job would take. Military precision.

Many thanks again to you all.”

Mr Andrew White, Removal to Umbria, Italy.  Comments by email September 2012

“Hello to all at Nomad,

My wife and I are now settled in Crete after the arrival of our furniture etc. and I simply wanted to say a big thank you to all concerned with the process of transfer from England to here. Every single item, including many that were fragile or very fragile,  arrived safely. No damage whatsoever! Given the task undertaken, I find this simply amazing and testament to your care and attention to detail.

Throughout the process every member of your team was attentive, patient and courteous, helping us through the process and giving a sense of assurance. Your pick up team and delivery team were efficient, pleasant and willing, and again gave a sense of assurance.

I will always recommend Nomad to anyone who was thinking of moving abroad!

Many thanks again and best wishes to all,”

Carl Burrows, Removal to Crete, Greece, September 2012

Efharisto poli.”

“I just wanted to email you to say thank you for your very prompt and well organised service.  You made the move from Crete back to the UK completely stress free!

The guys (and gal) who did all the hard graft of humping around all the boxes etc, were an extremely happy bunch.

Thank you all.

Kind regards,”

Mrs Kirsty Robson, Removal from Crete, Greece to Stamford, UK, April 2012

“Dear Danny,

I am writing to thank you for Nomad’s work in moving to Crete.  Your staff were immaculate on all counts, both in collection and delivery.  There were several items of furniture with glass in them and all this arrived safely.  There was also the fact that everything had to be carried the last 200 yards, as not even a small car can negotiate the right angle bends in the small village.

Thank you again.

Yours sincerely,”

Mr Christopher Wright, Removal to Crete, Greece, March 2012

“Dear Mr Baldwin

Further to our telephone conversation, I would like to say how much of a pleasure it has been to deal with you, Robert and the staff at Nomad International to safely ship my furniture from Crete to the UK.  The service provided throughout has been outstanding right from my initial enquiry  through to delivery and installation of the furniture in my home.  You have kept me and my agents in Crete informed at all stages and dealt with my enquiries in a most courteous, very prompt and efficient manner for which I am extremely impressed and grateful. You are the true masters of customer service! Keep up the excellent work and service!

Thank you to your teams, both at home and abroad for upholding your high standards and a job well done.

With kind regards,”

Mr Tony Hodge, Removal from Crete, Greece to UK, February 2012

“To all at Nomad,

Thankyou all so much for making our move to Corfu in Oct 2011 go so easily. We cannot recommend you highly enough. From start to finish you all did everything possible to fit into our plans, difficult unsure dates [every thing arrived less than 24 hrs after us] all in perfect condition. All of you were friendly & helpful. Very reasonably priced against all other quotes we received. So pleased we came back to you again when we decided we would make our stay permanent & needed more goods brought over in Nov. We have recommended you to Corfu Homefinders & several other people.

All our Best Wishes to you all for Christmas & 2012. Take Care. Best Regards,”

Mr & Mrs Dave & Rose Belcher, Removal to Corfu, Greece, November 2011

“We used the services of Nomad and they were very efficient & helpful from the start to the end.  We moved from the UK to Corfu and it was a stress-free move thanks to your team.”

Mrs Judith Morton, Removal to Corfu, Testimonial November 2011

“We have used Nomad International’s service on a number of occasions, both ways, UK-Crete and back, and cannot fault this service or the company. Excellent communications, always on time, polite staff, and everyone is very nice and cheerful, which makes it a great pleasure to work with Nomad. The prices are good too!”

Jeremy Rodwell, Removals to and from Crete, Greece, November 2011

“Dear Nomad,

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you for your wonderful service, a professional service with a smile from all involved, especially Taliesen, David & Mark, big cheers to them 🙂

I have used Nomad removals twice now and been exceptionally happy on both occasions. The first time was bring goods to me from the Uk to Crete, Greece and this time, November 2011, a complete removal from Crete to France.

Everyone involved were fab and my stuff arrived in my new French abode only 2 days after me, even with the Greek Ferries on go-slow.

I would definitely highly recommend your services and will be back next time, (next time?? Ohhhh not for a while eh) 🙂

Many Thanks & Christmas Greetings to you all.”

Cher Fauvèl, Removal from Crete to France, November 2011

“Dear Daniel, I just wanted to thank you and everyone at Nomad.

From my initial enquiry with you, through the removal from Greece and the delivery to Oxford and all the phone calls and e mails inbetween, I have been very impressed by the level of service. David and Mark in particular were fantastic over in Greece, please say a big thank you from me!

Everything arrived in perfect condition and even my olive tree survived the journey!  Everyone has been friendly and helpful and the cost was extremely reasonable.

I have already recommended you to some friends thinking of moving back and as for myself, I hope to go back to Greece in the not too distant future so you’ll be hearing from me!

Thank you once again,

Best wishes,”

Mary Doherty, Removal from Aegina, Greece to Oxford, UK, September 2011

“We have had 3 deliveries from England to Crete with your company and we wish to thank you for the excellent service you provided.  No matter which member of staff we had contact with we were impressed with their friendly, helpful and professional manner.

It goes without saying that we would have no hesitation in employing your services again and in recommending you to others.”

Mr & Mrs Ian and Sandra Pearson, Removal to Crete, Greece, September 2011

“I would like to thank you all for the efficient and quality service all of your staff have given us. The complication with the strikes added to your problems but the service you delivered was excellent and I have no problems in continuing to recommend Crete Express and Nomad International.

I was particularly impressed by the communication between Sheila, your drivers and ourselves. They kept us fully up to date with progress and arranged for the collection at Vamos perfectly without any delay.

Thanks again to you all for an excellent service.

Regards,”

Phill Whitlam, “Crete Express” shipment to Crete, August 2011

“I just wanted to let you know that your team delivered my things here in the UK, and they were brilliant (Rob especially)!!!  The leather settee and chairs would not get through the doors so he took the front window out in seconds and in it came through the window. Nothing was too much bother, wonderful service!!  
 
I only have good things to say about Nomad.  You were all brilliant and I will recommend you to everyone.”

Ann Longden, Removal from Crete, Greece to the UK, June 2011

“Nomad are a very professional company.  No job is too big or too small for them.  We were very satisfied with they way our possessions were moved.”

Case Study

Delivery of Concert Grand Piano to Apartment in Crete

Concert Grand Piano removal by Nomad InternationalRemovals to Crete are never straightforward, and our team members are used to going the extra mile to deliver to remote or difficult-to-access locations. Many of our customers worry especially about transporting valuable or fragile items over such a long distance. Our customer Mr Kypri recently had all of these concerns in one removal, with his ambitious plan to transport a top-of-the-range Bosendorfer concert grand piano as part of his removal from the UK to his new apartment in Aghios Nikolaos.

Bosendorfer pianos are among the finest in the world, and Mr Kypri’s beautiful 2.25m concert grand piano is a magnificent example. The prospect of transporting it for him was both exciting and daunting, since it presented the dual challenges of being both very fragile and extremely heavy. Furthermore, Mr Kypri’s home in Crete is not a house but an apartment, on a narrow one-way street in the town of Aghios Nikolaos.

Nomad International concert grand piano removalAs with all of our removals, we planned to transport the piano all the way from door-to-door, by road. We arranged for a specialist piano crating company to meet us on site on collection day and load the export-wrapped piano into a purpose-built wooden crate, which we transported back to our Peterborough warehouse. The crated piano (which now weighed in excess of 1 tonne including the crate) was kept in storage for a short period, while the rest of Mr Kypri’s furniture was taken straight to Crete. Once we received the go-ahead from Mr Kypri to deliver the piano, we booked it onto our next scheduled departure, due to arrive in Crete just prior to Easter.

Because of the narrow streets in Aghios Nikolaos, we knew that our large international lorry would not be able to reach the apartment, so we planned a strategy which involved transferring the piano into our medium-sized shuttle van and then using a crane to lift it into the apartment. Our team of four men would then bring the piano inside, unwrap it and assemble it under the supervision of a piano technician, all of whom were booked in advance.

Nomad International concert grand piano removalHowever, despite our detailed communication regarding this time-sensitive operation, the Cretan company operating the crane failed to turn up! Thankfully Mr Kypri and our team kept their cool, and a few phone calls had the crane outside and ready to go. The crate was removed and the piano (still wrapped and on a special shoe) was transferred to the crane vehicle, then lifted gracefully into the air, and finally onto Mr Kypri’s balcony. Our team then brought the piano inside, removed all of the wrapping materials and reassembled the beautiful instrument in its new home, in perfect condition.

Planning and communication were the cornerstones of this removal, but most important was the determination of our team to overcome any last-minute obstacles and complete the job properly on the day.

Mr Kypri said “I was delighted with everybody I dealt with at Nomad, in England and in Crete. Everybody was enthusiastic and competent, and getting the job done properly overrode any other considerations. I would heartily recommend them.”

<p><strong>Mr A Kypri, Removal to Crete, Greece, April 2011</strong></p>

“First of all I want to say how impressed I was with the service you provided for the 13 packages which arrived on Tuesday. From the initial enquiry, during the 3 weeks or so of deliveries coming in from various suppliers, the final costing and then to the efficient delivery at this end – fantastic! You have a great team who all seem to be highly motivated and the service is truly outstanding.”

Brian Stewart, "Crete Express" Shipment to Crete, Greece, May 2011

“Hi Rob and Team at Nomad,

Just wanted to thank you all for the excellent service you provided. My 8 parcels arrived from your May 3rd trailer in Vamos as promised all safe and sound. It was like Christmas Day again here at the villa, opening all of our parcels. I look forward to using Nomad again very soon.”

Karin and Graham Henderson, "Crete Express" Shipment to Crete, Greece, May 2011

“We are e-mailing you to thank you for the excellent service you gave in moving our furniture from Corby to Western Crete last year & this year.

From beginning to end we had every faith in your company that our possessions would be delivered to us on time and in one piece with no extra red tape to go through at the ports. Your staff at both ends were kind, polite and efficient who treated all our possessions with respect so that nothing was broken or torn. Your office staff kept us up to date with all aspects of the pick-up/delivery and were always courteous.

We will be recommending your company to anybody who wishes to move to/from abroad without hesitation.

Again, thank you for a stress-less removal service.”

<p><strong>Alison &amp; David Tate, Removal to Crete, Greece, February 2011</strong></p>

“Moving to Crete has been a fantastic experience and, for us, it started with Nomad International. Their team were professional amd friendly, and most important, really cared about us and our move. They supply a real door to door service – there are no containers sitting in a port somewhere waiting on an un-named agent.

They sorted our mistakes and from packing in the UK to placing the furniture where we wanted it in our new home in Crete. Tal, Dave, Tracy et al were only a phone call away. My wife and I would reccomend them to anyone who is thinking of moving.  I’m sure there are cheaper but I doubt there are better.”

Dave Buchanan, Removal to Crete, Greece, November 2010

“I have used Nomad to deliver furniture from the UK to Crete on three separate occasions and am really impressed with the service they offer. Their staff are courteous and professional, their deliveries on time and our goods arrived undamaged. I will certainly use them again and would recommend them to anyone.”

Roger Newbery, Removal to Crete, Greece, November 2010

“In June this year (2010) we moved our belongings from the UK to Thassos, Greece, with the help of Nomad International. Both before and during the removal, we could not fault Nomad. The preparations to the move were complicated and confused (from our point of view) but Nomad were always at the end of the phone, always patient and always helpful and informative. When they said they would ring back, they did. When they said they would reply by email, they did so promptly and in all the dealings we had with them, they were both professional and friendly. During the move, when we had a mini crisis, having found we had packed a vital document, they could not have been more helpful, calmly helping us to resolve the matter with the minimum of fuss. Again, when our belongings were delivered, we could not fault the friendly willing service we received. With Nomad”s help, a potentially fraught experience was streamlined to relative simplicity, and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering their services.”

<p><strong>Carol Maggs, Removal to Thassos, Greece, June 2010</strong></p>

“Moving home is always a stressful experience, even within your home country. Moving to another country can be a nightmare, but we found Nomad’s helpful and professionalism removed the stress of sending our most precious and valuable possessions over 2000 miles. Nomad arrived to collect our possessions on time, we were kept informed of their progress and they delivered them when they stated they would. Nothing was damaged or lost.

We are to return to the UK for Christmas and will be arranging for Nomad to collect and transport our presents and other items before returning to Crete.”

Dennis Easton, Removal to Crete, Greece, May 2010

“In writing a testimonial for Nomad International I would like to say it was a pleasure to work with staff who were both attentive and particular in their detail. My wife and I were extremely satisfied with the service provide by your company. The arrangements for forwarding our goods out to Crete was by no means straight-forward – albeit that Nomad International took it all in their stride and made it appear that what we were asking was an every-day occurrence.

Your staff kept in touch with us throughout and collated the delivery of various types of goods, from several different suppliers, over a protracted period of time.

In respect of the actual delivery this was handled with due diligence and encompassed liaison with our property developer actually on site.

We were extremely pleased with absolutely everything – and the only damage to the full shipment was a small chip from one dinner plate!

We would like to thank in particular Taliesen Hollywood and Daniel Baldwin for all their help – they were both excellent!

We would not hesitate to recommend your company to others – and indeed we have done so.

Thanks and regards,”

Martin Pearce, Removal to Crete, Greece, June 2010

“Just a quick note from the Internet Cafe to send you an enormous thank you for everything you and your employees have done for us. We have both been most impressed by the quality and professionalism shown nevermind the patience and understanding.

We can’t recommend you highly enough and are distributing some of your leaflets to our contacts here and spreading the word.

Best wishes for the continued success of Nomad,”

Barbara and Roger Wharton, Removal to Evia, Greece, August 2010

“Nomad moved us to Italy in October of last year, and we have just been able to move into our restored home. We have only just unpacked and wanted to let you know we had absolutely NO breakages and just wanted to thank your team for an excellent and stress free service. We will be more than happy to recommend you at any time. Your team was more than helpful and arranged a van to our rental address as the lane was too tight for the lorry, all carried out smoothly!!

Thanks again.”

<p><strong>Emma and Matt Malkin, Removal to Macerata, Italy, 2009 (Testimonial July 2010)</strong></p>

“Knowing we had not shipped possessions to a foreign country before, Nomad led us gently and professionally through the procedures, taking the stress out of the entire process. They collected and delivered on time in both the UK and Greece at times convenient to us and were unfailingingly courteous and helpful.”

Mr JL, Removal to the Peloponnese, Greece, March 2010

“We would highly recommend Nomad International Taliesen was extremely helpful when we enquired about their services even to the point of working out how large the vehicle needed to be. We were asked what dates and times were best for us both for the collection in Rhodes and the delivery in Cardiff and the people arrived EXACTLY on time (amazing if you know the roads in Rhodes and the M4 for Cardiff!).

We found everyone to be professional, helpful and thoughtful, they treated everything with care as if it were their own. They understand that a removal of this kind will be stressful and were amazingly understanding at me being a bit emotional at times (including when I burst into tears saying goodbye to a friend – very diplomatically not noticing!).

They were recommended to me and I would certainly recommend them to anyone moving abroad or relocating back to Britain. We felt confident at all times that everything was in good hands and were kept informed of what was happening all through the process.”

<p><strong>Maria Skye, Removal from Rhodes, Greece to Cardiff, UK, February 2010</strong></p>

“I am writing to let you know that all our furniture etc was picked up from Maidenhead, superbly packed by Jay and his team and arrived in good shape in Crete where it was unloaded carefully and cheerfully by the team there. I found your service excellent and i would not hesitate in recommending your company. Many thanks.”

<p><strong>Sue Smart - Removal to Crete, Greece</strong></p>

“We are more than satisfied with the service we’ve received from Nomad International and would not hesitate to use them again. All our questions were answered quickly and they were always at the other end of the ‘phone to offer sound advice and helpful suggestions when needed. Our move to Greece went extremely smoothly from start to finish and all our furniture and personal belongings arrived without any damage at all. I would certainly recommend Nomad International to anyone looking for a really friendly and very professional removal firm. Very competetive prices too!”

Mrs L Burlace, Removal to Kalymnos, Greece, February 2010

“This is just a note to say a big thank you for the transportation of our goods from our home in Essex to the basement of our home in Crete. We were delighted when we arrived back in Crete to find everything where we wanted it and all in perfect condition.

We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone needing removals between these two countries. Many thanks.”

Celia Alawi, Removal to Crete, Greece, April 2010

“I would like to thank Nomad for the excellent service we received in having our goods delivered to Corfu from England. All our boxes arrived intact and with no breakages. We would like to give special thanks to Mark who delivered our goods in Corfu. He kept us informed by telephone when he would be arriving and once with us he did not stopped until all the boxes were unloaded and taken into our house making the delivery stress free.

We would certainly recommend Nomad to anyone considering a move to Europe. Thank you once again for the excellent service.”

Geoff and Kath Smith, Removal to Corfu, Greece, March 2010

“Just a quick email to say thank you for a truly fabulous service.

Our furniture and belongings arrived on Saturday as promised and all in one piece (except for one broken dish which is likely my fault as I didn”t pack it well enough!). Considering the snow in England and throughout Europe, not to mention the Greek farmers protesting and striking – it is wonderful that we were only one day behind schedule. Though Dave did say he had driven half the night to make sure he missed the problems between Thessaloniki and Keramoti. So big thanks to him for this!

Dave and Mark were fabulous guys and carried our boxes up the stairs as if they were full of feathers instead of books, DVDs etc etc! They were laughing and saying the lads in England were wimps as they had said the boxes were heavy!! You have some fantatsic staff on both sides of the Channel – a credit to your company. Please thank them all from us.

I will have no hesitation in recommending Nomad to anyone I hear of that is relocating to Greece. A 5 star service from start to finish!!”

<p><strong>Tracey Agg, Removal to Thassos, Greece, January 2010</strong></p>

“I bought a world war two ex-British army motorbike through eBay , and enlisted the services of Nomad International to ship it to the UK for me from its owner in Crete. It can be imagined how much trust was at stake in transporting such an item. My bike arrived in Peterborough without so much as a scratch, and I am soundly impressed by the professionalism of the company. I would unreservedly recomend them to anyone. My thanks and gratitude to all at Nomad International.”

<p><strong>Leif Evans, Removal from Crete, Greece, January 2010</strong></p>

“Nomad removals are the BEST, after searching for a removal company on the web and indeed speaking with various companies, I finally spoke with Nomad who not only put my mind at rest but helped me move from France to Crete without any fuss. They were and still are positive from beginning to end, nothing is too much trouble, and prices are very competitive. I would thoroughly recommend their services and have passed their details on to several other people.”

<p><strong>Jan Colson, Removal to Crete, Greece, January 2010</strong></p>

“Let me say, I was absolutely delighted with Nomad from the start. I managed, with Nomad”s help to literally ship out everything including the kitchen sink!!

I shipped out a full flat-packed kitchen, including appliances/worktops etc along with a full balcony suite of furniture including 4 x loungers/ a glass dining table (which was huge AND heavy!) along with 6 x chairs. Above this, I sent out a designer Italian lounge suite in soft leather, and for that matter my own extra aircon unit. In total it was 3 x pallets full with a huge volume in cubic feet. AND a lot of this was fragile to say the least.

Goods arrived at my village bang on time in smaller truck (to negotiate winding roads easier, as per my request) with a 3 “man” UK crew. They were a marvel – worked like ants, placed all items where I requested – basically stars!!!

Damages – it was bound to happen, and it did ( 2 x Ikea tumblers from a six pack, costing not a lot!!!!) That was it.

In short, really pleased. Service = excellent. Easy to talk to factor = excellent. Would I use Nomad again for shiping to Crete??? YES!!!!”

<p><strong>Mr O, Removal to Crete, Greece, December 2009</strong></p>

“Just a line to say thank you for the excellent service you offered with our recent move to Crete. The service was efficient, reliable and inexpensive.

As promised, Dave telephoned me a couple of days prior to delivery and met me at the appointed time and place in our village. After directing him to the end of a long pathway, by the time I had parked my car and walked to my house, he and George had started unloading and within 20 minutes the whole job was done.

Both my wife and I were thoroughly impressed by the professionalism shown by both Dave and George and would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone wishing to move items to or from Crete. Thank you once again for the excellent service.”

Dick Whittering, Removal to Crete, Greece, November 2009

<p><strong>Dick Whittering, Removal to Crete, Greece, November 2009</strong></p>

“Both Lynn and I wanted to say thanks for the speed and efficiency of our move to Greece back in September. After several weeks, we”ve had a chance to test everything thoroughly and all our possessions (including computer and external hard disks) made it through the journey in excellent condition.

I also have to praise the lads who managed our collection so smoothly and efficiently, and particularly the guys who did the delivery here in Greece, managing both our horrendous parking conditions and the tiny lift up to our flat with aplomb (not to mention one of them hauling our exercise bike up four flights of stairs!).

Basically, we approached the whole move late and in the worst way possible, making a horrendous job for ourselves. Having left ourselves utterly frayed and worn out, we needed someone to just come in and handle the move without fuss and with maximum efficiency.

Nomad did that for us, and with a smile to boot. Many thanks.”

<p><strong>Matt Brooker &amp; Lynn Fotheringham, Removal to Thessaloniki, Greece, September 2009</strong></p>

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Nomad for the very professional way our removal to Crete was handled. From my first telephone call everyone was very helpful, the UK team and the international team were efficient, helpful and friendly there was not a hitch of any kind. Plus for this good service the price was surprisingly low. Many thanks again.”

<p><strong>Anna Lewis, Removal to Crete, October 2009</strong></p>

“To all at Nomad, We would like to let everyone know that you are a fantastic company. Efficiency is second to none. We had never done anything on this scale before and were naturally very anxious. Well we certainly picked the right company to take away our anxieties. The lads both in England and Zante were polite, helpful, hardworking and very professional. Nothing was too much trouble. We were kept informed of everything. It is indeed useful to know that if you need anything else taken out (large or small) this can be done. Needless to say your company will be the first on our list in future ventures and to recommend to anyone else. Best of luck for the future. Best regards.”

<p><strong>Dennis and Diane Pearson, Removal to Zante, Greece, May 2009</strong></p>

“Just a note to say thank you for all the help you gave us when you moved us to Rhodes. The service was quick and professional. Your staff were well-mannered and also very careful with our furniture and personal possessions. You took a lot of the stress out of moving to Rhodes.

Again I would like to say a big thank you and I would recommend Nomad to anyone thinking of moving abroad.”

Geof & Sue Baker, Removal to Rhodes, Greece, July 2009

“I had 12 large boxes shipped back from Crete. From the first telephone call I found the service responsive and friendly – totally customer focussed. I was kept informed of progress all the way through the process. I found Nomad efficient and very reasonably priced. I would certainly use them again.”

<p><strong>Aly Dickinson, Removal to Crete, Greece, July 2009</strong></p>

“Just a short note to say thank you to Nomad for taking care of our move to Kefalonia. Moving house is always stressful, but moving to another country is even more so. From the initial quote to the move itself we were very reassured by your confident approach and attention to detail. Dave was great and gave us lots of useful tips and information. Being a (British expat) Greek resident himself meant he was extremely knowledgeable about everything from registering with the nearest Consulate, to the local wildlife!

We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anybody wishing to move to Greece.

Thanks once again for all your help. Best regards,”

<p><strong>Janet Jones, Removal to Kefalonia, Greece, June 2009</strong></p>

“Our house is in a small hamlet half-way up a hill in Umbria. 400 yards short of the street there is a single-track elbow bend that has to be seen to be believed. Without the service provided by Nomad, and the wee van, we would never have managed to get our furniture over. The whole service from start to finish including packing and delivery was first class. So much so that we will be back to Nomad in September to move the rest of our belongings over. Thanks Taliesen and everyone at Nomad.”

<p><strong>Ross McLeod, Removal to Umbria, Italy, March 2009</strong></p>

“We used Nomad for our move from Manchester to Kefalonia in April 2009. We had never used them before and were a bit nervous about sending all our belongings off with an unknown company to a foreign country! The guys arrived to pick up our boxes and flat-packs at exactly the right time on the agreed date, organised and recorded everything efficiently and off they went. We had several sleepless nights, imagining that things would get damaged or lost en route but… on the agreed day, everything arrived intact! Not a single item damaged and every piece accounted for. Good value for money, efficient and pleasant service in both the UK and Greece AND a company willing to transport whole house furniture or the odd box. We will definitely use Nomad again if we want to bring out any more items from the UK.”

Grant Pedrick, Removal to Kefalonia, Greece, April 2009

“Just a note to say thanks a lot to Nomad for the excellent service in moving our personal effects from UK to Kefalas, Crete. From the moment I first contacted you company your staff were courteous and efficient. During the collection and delivery your staff displayed a similar efficiency. The goods arrived and were delivered to our house here a few days before we arrived and your staff assisted in storing them inside the house. Everything arrived safe and sound and the only breakage was a small plate packed by myself!! I will have no hesitation in recommending Nomad in the future.”

Don Middleton, Removal to Crete, Greece, March 2009

“I recently moved to a mountain village in northern Italy. I was very lucky to be told about Nomad International. They collected my furniture from Somerset and despite heavy snow on route 2 weeks later the lorry arrived in my nearest town. With the little lorry they were able to bring my furniture to the door. David was extermely helpful and the whole process was achieved with no stress whatsoever. An excellent service.”

Belinda Hicks, Removal to Tuscany, Italy, January 2009

“Just wanted to say thank you to Nomad for the collection/storage/delivery of our stuff. We were very pleased with the service provided as our belongings were packed and stored in Crete and later delivered to Umbria in Italy, whilst we returned to the UK. So potential there for some anxiety. Taliesen was kind and reassuring throughout. The packers Mark & John did a fast competent job in Crete. The arrival of our things in Italy was a great relief to us and Dave was marvellous. We live on the third floor and he carried everything up on a hot evening and kept his good humour throughout. So a special thanks to him.

We will recommend Nomad to our friends.”

Ann & Richard Freeman, Removal to Umbria, Italy, October 2008

“Just a few lines to thank you for making our move to Chania so hassle-free. The arrival of our furniture was on time, and was done very professionaly by your friendly team with nothing damaged. Again many thanks and we will not hesitate to recommend Nomad International to anyone.”

“I would like to thank you for your help and cooperation in the recent move of our belongings from Crete to the United Kingdom.

And I did!! It all arrived safely (beautifully wrapped) with great communication from Dave in Athens about times etc. A special thanks to Leigh and Tal for their prompt responses to my (many!) telephone calls and their reassurances that it would all happen. And it did!!!!

Please use this company!!!!.”

“Three day-beds were meant to arrive in June but did not!! (Not NOMAD’s fault. The supplier in the UK did not deliver them in time). I contacted NOMAD with the saga (again and again!!) and they were fantastic and very understanding. In order to avoid a second delivery cost, Dave in Athens put them on ferry to Tilos without a driver but clearly labelled for me in Tilos (15 pieces!!) when I was in Tilos in September 2008.

I unfortunately missed the boat in the morning and arrived at the quay to my see day beds leave for their own mini cruise to Rhodes and return to Tilos that evening (phew!!), but good labeling from NOMAD made it happen!! Myself and friends did the Mamma Mia experience (though did not jump into the water!!). See photos to prove NOMAD really can make it happen!

Book NOMAD!!!!!!”

Jenny - Removal to Tilos, Greece, September 2008

“Hello, I had a crate delivered last week and would just like to thank you for the excellent service in terms of the delivery and condition of the items in the crate. Thank you.”

<p><strong>Malcolm Park, Removal to Crete, Greece, April 2008</strong></p>

“I have to say ‘Thankyou’ for a superb service in transporting our furniture from the UK to Skiathos. The whole exercise went like clock-work with nothing lost, nothing marked and nothing broken-brilliant. Tom, Jay and Charlie did a superb job in packing and loading, and nothing was too much trouble for Russell and Allastair, who had to contend with a very difficult approach to our house in Skiathos. Well Done !”

Hugh Shearer - Removal to Skiathos

“Felt compelled to drop you a line to congratulate you on your superb service moving me back to the UK. Your staff in Athens made light work of the packing and negotiated the difficult access with ease. I would have no hesitation in recommending your service to others. Well done!”

<p><strong>Mrs Kontegeorgio - Removal to Athens, Greece</strong></p>

“Reference to our recent move to Crete we would like to thank you for your services of transporting our furniture and personal items to the storage here. We were told by by Neda the estate agents who met the delivery team that it was professionally done. We are now in an unfurnished apartment whereby we have unpacked our belongings and we have found everything intact and all the boxes were not even dented. We would certainly recommend you to anyone wishing to move.”

John & Sandra Gray - Removal to Kalo Horia, Crete, Greece

“Just wanted to send a quick e-mail to express our appreciation and gratitude for the excellent service provided by your company. Moving house and particularly moving to another country can be a stressfull undertaking, but your efficiency and excellent customer service removed any fears we may have had. The three gentlemen who delivered the goods were first class, polite and efficient. Crete is not the easiest island to deliver to given the quality of the roads and under the circumstances did an excellent job. Please can you pass on our thanks to all those involved. We will not hesitate to recommend your company to others wishing to move to Greece.”

Steve & Bernadette Bilney - Removal to Agios Nikolaos, Crete, Greece

“Many thanks for your help with our recent move from Hamburg to Rhodes. We would particularly like to thank Russell and Jon who kept us informed of the progress of our goods throughout, and managed the delivery to our new house exactly on time, which is no mean feat considering we live in the centre of the old town. Best regards.”

Mr & Mrs Price - Removal to Rhodes, Greece

“Penny and I would like to say “Thanks” to Hamish and the crew for the packing and Tom and the crew for the unloading. Of course”Thanks” to you and all the others who made the move go so smoothly. We have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone moving to Crete. Many thanks and good luck for the future.”

Andrew & Penny Chladeck - Removal to Crete, Greece

“I had planned to wait until all the boxes are unpacked before writing, but – although all the fragile ones are still sealed, and will remain so for the next few weeks – I felt I must write to thank you, and all those involved, for their good work. We have moved house many times (double figures), both here and abroad, so have some considerable experience of removal companies. We can both say with no hesitation whatsoever, that Nomad are – by far – the best: more efficient, more friendly, more patient, more helpfull, more personal. We were impressed by the care taken with our possessions (and I”m sure, when we eventually unpack them all that this opinion will be reinforced). The lads both loading and unloading deserve our grateful thanks. Once more, thankyou. We will continue mentioning your name in glowing terms to all and sundry!”

“Having just returned from our house in Crete I thought it only right that I should write to you about your removals teams. The packing team in the UK of Julian & Tom were excellent as were your unpacking team in Crete of Russell & Dave. Nothing was to much trouble for them & they all caried out there duties quickly, cleanly and effectively with a smile on their face and provided a service above our expectations. They were all a credit to your organisation.”

Ian Urvin - Removal to Crete, Greece

“We have just received our goods. We would like to take this opportunity to say how pleased we have been with the service that we have had from your company. Everyone that we have had dealings with have been friendly, helpfull & efficient. Please pass on our appreciation to everyone concerned – they have been a credit to Nomad & we will certainly be happy to recomend Nomad.”
