After receiving several extortionate quotes I thankfully came across Pete on a Google search. He gave me a reasonable quote for collecting a sofa I purchased on Gumtree from Basildon and delivering it to my 3rd floor flat in Romford.
Pete is friendly, helpful and reliable and was able to assist me at short notice.
I would not hesitate to use his service again and would recommend him to my friends.

Pete does exactly what he says on his card “fast and friendly”. I’ve looked at lots of Pete’s testimonials and I agree with them all. Pete collected 2 big book shelves from London to me in Leigh and he was on time and basically a pleasure and extremely helpful from the moment we got in touch with him. HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM. Merry Xmas Pete.

I ordered an Olympic Games double wardrobe, single bed, athlete’s chair, 2 benches and a utility cupboard from the Remains Of The Games (Olympic Games) website. Then I discovered that they did not deliver from their Tilbury warehouse. Found Pete and emailed by Paypal receipt to him and he took care of the delivery. He then helped dismantle the wardrobe is it was too big to go up our stairs. Excellent service. Thanks Pete!

I used Pete Wade from Essex Man with a Van to move various white goods items. The service that Pete provided was exemplary: careful removal and stowing for transport, assistance in placing the items at the final destination and an overall professional approach. Pete was also courteous and friendly and provided a service that was very well priced when one considers the comparable costs of any van hire.

What a STAR!! If only everything else with moving had gone as smoothly as moving home (like getting back online, hence the delay in feedback!!) – My Son and myself moved our home (a top floor flat) of 16 years to another flat (also top floor) nearby – I had underestimated how much stuff we had and realised quite last minute that we needed ‘a man with a van’ – I had a ‘team’ ranging in age from 3 teenager to a 50 & 75 year old who ALL agreed Pete was ‘awsome’ – he was punctual, efficient, patient (even when I changed my mind about where I wanted a unit!) – very calm and pleasant. He was helpful before and during the move and it was a very fair price – which was also helped by the fact I already had some help (the three teenage boys were worn out way before Pete & the older guys!) – I expected the move to be quite stressful but in the event it was a really great day!! I would (and have been – by word of mouth!) thoroughly reccomend him without hesitation!! Thanks Pete – we don’t plan on moving again just yet but if we do – or anything else – I will definately be back to you! x

I would wish to compliment Pete and his helper on the day of my move. Confronted with numerous problems (an oversize american fridge/freezer for 1) they dealt with it all with hard work and humour. Indeed, when my storage facility was closed before the last transfer, Pete even agreed to meet me there the following morning at 7.30 to complete my move. Oh, and the price was very reasonable as well!

Pete moved all of my furniture from Chelmsford to Braintree at the end of November. He provided a fantastic service and made the whole process stress free and easy! As I had a lot of heavy furniture to shift, I paid a little extra for another man and they were both efficient and very quick in getting everything moved. I could not have wished for a better service and will be using Pete again at the beginning of January. Highly recommended.

I had arranged for an Ebay purchase of conservatory furniture to be collected and delivered using another company. The van driver hadn’t looked at the photographs and dimensions properly and couldn’t fit the furniture in the van. I had to find someone to do the job quickly and Pete did it very well. The furniture arrived and Pete even helped us to get it inside. I would recommend Pete to anyone who wants a pleasant professional service and someone who goes that extra mile. I will be using Pete’s service for any removals in the future.

I asked Pete to help me move from London to Colchester in early August 2011. His professionalism was second to none. He arrived on time, loaded the van and drove everything, incuding myself, to Colchester. He made a wonderful experience out of a slightfully stressful situation. Moving homes is never easy, but his calming demeanour, reliability and chatty character were very helpful and utterly exceptional on the day. I was extremely happy with his services. He is a great bloke and I wish him nothing but the best for him and his company, which I am sure will go from strength to strength. Thank you.

Purchased a really large and heavy sofa, found Pete on internet, to collect for me, could not beleive how cheap he was for a 40 mile round trip! Problem was, i hadn’t measured before buying! turned out 2″ wider than the height of my door, and hardly any room to tilt. Thankfully, he did not leave me in the lurch!, he sorted it out, left to me, i think i would have had to leave it in the shed and re-sell, great bloke, friendly, down to earth and could not have been more helpful, and i will not be using anyone else, if you need something shifted, look no further, you will not be dissapointed, 100% recommended to all, cheers Pete, i will be passing your info on, whenever anyone wants help, and i will certainly be in touch the next time i purchase, A+++++

We were extremely impressed by Pete’s service as he helped me with a house move from Chelmsford to Suffolk. On the morning of the move, Pete turned up dead on time, despite blistering snow weather conditions that had set in overnight. Straight away he got to work, with a helper he had organised at my request, and began lifting heavy furniture over the icy roads to his van. He did he stop till everything was in the van. I then gave him my address to which he delivered my furniture to safely and in good time.
I cant imagin a lot of people would have turned up in those weather conditions but you did Pete – so thank you ever so much. I would be very happy to recommend you to any of my friends.

Pete has been wonderful with our house move to maldon. He was on time and helped with all the packages. Was keen to help us. He himself handled big boxes. We are thankful to him.
I also recommended Pete to my friend when he moved. Reasonable price.Highly recommended.

Pete collected a sofa purchased on e.bay and delivered it to my address in Brentwood. He was bang on time and whilst the sofa was very heavy, he didn’t complain or make a drama out of it, just got on with the job. I was very grateful. Pete’s prices are very competitive especially as I was quoted twice as much from another source for the same job! I feel Pete’s service is excellent. Thanks again and I would definitely recommend.

Pete kindly collected a Martial Arts Wooden Dummy that I purchased from Ebay (Hertfordshire) and delivered it to me in Chelmsford. The item was very heavy, and in several pieces, but Pete delivered this to me on time, and helped me carry it into my garden. He even offered to help me assemble it! Very polite, and professional service offered. I would definitely use again with my next Ebay purchase! Highly recommended! Thanks again Pete!!!

Pete is a bit of a Hero…. he provides a service without fault – fabulous prices, professional, friendly, reliable and handsome too. He delivered my nightmare “heavy” sofa bed without a single grumble. Thank you Pete once again, I will certainly be spreading the word. I will definately be using your collection/delivery services in the future.

Man with a Van (Pete) picked up a rather large wardrobe for me on Saturday the 10th, not only did he take the roof off his van to accommodate it but he had to take it apart and rebuild it in the bedroom as it would not go down my hall! He is amazing. Nothing was too much trouble, he even removed a spider from my lounge and helped me take the hard top off my car. All with a smile. I would NOT use anyone else. Thank you so much Pete

We would like to thank Pete Wade for his kindness and his prompt response to our delivery problems in Essex.
The cost was minimum and the services were absolutely top gear.
Consequently we would recommend ‘Essex Man with a Van’ and we will use them again and again and again.
Thank you Pete.

I am so glad that People like Pete (a rarity this days) still exist.
He was very helpful, honest and efficient at giving me the best quote on New Years despite calling several others.
He is now my number one choice for any delivery or moving job. Thank you very much. Be rest assured that I will use your services always and recommend you to all!

Pete is an excellent choice! He was very helpful when I moved house on the day it decided to snow. He still turned up as expected and even took more items to my new home than originally agreed and expected no more payment than first quoted (which was very cheap indeed!) Many Thanks Pete, I will be sure to use your services again and reccommend to all!

Pete came out to Canvey to help me get a motorbike(!) to Braintree on the most awful evening of winter ice, sleet and snow. He was polite, helpful, courteous and excellent value for money despite it being a heavy and awkward load.
I would have no hesitation recommending him to friends and family – thanks again!

Pete was fantastic today. He picked up, delivered and got upstairs wardrobes that turned out to be so much heavier and awkward than we expected them to be! Eventually after much perseverence and time, the wardrobes managed to get to where they needed to be, but Pete didnt expect any more money than the origninal quote. Will definitely recommend to friends. Thanks very much.

I used Pete to collect a glass table and chairs from one location in Hertfordshire and a second glass table from another and deliver both to Brentwood in Essex. The collection and delivery went very smoothly and I was delighted with his professionalism and speedy delivery. He was also the cheapest available. I will certainly use him for future collections or deliveries. Many thanks Pete – I totally recommend you as a trustworthy and economical service.

Our company needed an urgent delivery of fragile equipment from Chelmsford to Westcliff on Sea in Essex. We did a search on yahoo and found Pete. He was very helpful, keen and cost effective. He collected fast and delivered fast. Fantastic Service! He even called to say it had been delivered. I have peace of mind now. We will surely be using him again for all our pickups and deliveries. Thanks pete! 100% recommended.
