What Mancunians Say About 1st Move International


Manchester to Georgia, USA

1st Move packed some very precious family furniture and mementos at my late mother's house near Manchester, England, and everything arrived in Savannah, GA USA in perfect condition. We did have to unpack the pallet ourselves when it arrived so be prepared for that. The communication throughout on both sides of the Atlantic was conducted with old-fashioned care and courtesy, accompanied by great tech so we always knew what was happening. Phones were answered by real people who remembered our previous conversations!!! Highly recommended.
