What Our Customers Have Said About Us

Efficient service with a smile. I contacted a few removal companies but DTT had the most thorough and transparent pricing system on the day they were really considerate in my neighbours and the toddlers who wanted to know exactly what was going on!

Adrian helped me with a tricky house move that came during the lockdown. We had to move due to living with a vulnerable person and being a key worker meant I still needed to work. Adrian arranged the removal quickly and the whole house was moved across within a few hours. There were no breakages and a friendly professional service all around. Thanks a lot.

We adore Adrian and his trusty team members. They are beyond patient & very efficient at what they do. They are always the first people we think of when we need some help either moving, or clearing, or sorting and they are always punctual, positive and speedy. We can't recommend them enough. Thanks DTT! (Shan & Michael)

Adrian and Ben are very personable and very easy to work with. They arrived on time and they worked diligently. They gave an estimate for the work (based on the likely tonnage for commercial waste drop-off) and this was broadly spot on. On a philosophical note, we have all got to figure out a better way of consuming and disposing of "stuff" but until such time, DTT services are much needed and much appreciated. I highly recommend the services of this company.

Adrian and Ben moved my furniture from one house to the other. They turned up on time and were extremely helpful and friendly, going out of their way to see that everything was moved and packed properly to ensure no damages. I would definitely recommend them. Lovely people to be around at what can be a quite stressful time!

Superb removal company. Dash The Trash (Adrian and Ben) offer a really friendly service, very professional & considerate and went way over their expected time due to 2 very difficult beds to dismantle and re-assemble and didn't charge us a penny more. We're absolutely delighted to have found them and have already recommended them as the best local service for removals.

I can thoroughly recommend Adrian and Chris. They arrived when they said they would, they are polite, friendly and knowledgeable. Nothing is too much trouble. They were still smiling after one very heavy sofa bed and lots of stairs! Excellent value too. Would definitely use them again and recommend to friends and family. A huge thank you from me!

I wholeheartedly agree with the other 5 star reviews on here. Adrian helped me move a couple of very heavy sofas - he was extremely patient, helpful and friendly throughout, even though this wasn't an easy job. Moreover, his price was extremely competitive compared to the competition. I will most certainly use Dash the Trash again. I used Adrian's company again a couple of weeks ago (October 2018). This time to move a large TV from Norbury to Wallington. There were stairs to negotiate at both addresses. Adrian and his new assistant Ben were both extremely polite, efficient and friendly, just as Adrian was last time. I don't hesitate to recommend them.

I HIGHLY recommend DTT. Adrian is a lovely hard working man who is not afraid of stairs! He packed up my home and moved me to my new home in one trip. He has a very bubbly and calming personality and brought my stress levels to a minimum! He and his co-worker Chris even moved my furniture around the room for me when I was deciding where it should go. I will certainly be using DTT again. Thank you Adrian and Chris! You are SUPER STARS! :)

This was copied and pasted by dash the trash as she did not have a google account. I used the man with a van service recently when I had a collection to make at short notice. Adrian was professional and helpful when arranging the service. My item was picked up, loaded on to the van and delivered to my property promptly and efficiently at a very decent price. I was very happy with the service and would recommend it to my friends and family. By Barbara Klein on 13th March 2017

Our family has used this house clearance service twice now and we are all very happy.... and it's difficult to please a whole family especially in the middle of bereavements! A very friendly but discreet and tolerant team, no fuss and never wasteful. Such a relief to have their help during stressful times.
