I highly recommend Billy for all of your haulage requirements. We recently used him to take our furniture, bike & personal effects from the UK to Calabria. He is simply superb and offers a top quality service for a reasonable price and a nice bloke too.
The boxes were stacked very neatly in our apartment which was nice to see on our arrival.
Thanks Billy much appreciated. We will definitely use you again.

Alex.r

His numbers are 07967 981901 or landline 0121 313 2235

Co-incidentally he's popping over again to my house in an hour to take over a shower screen to my apartment in Calabria as he has some space left over at the back.

A true gent.

Whether you need to take a full van load of furniture over or just say one bulk item like a sofa, no can match him on price.

Unbelievably low price, fantastic service.

Hi
We used him last September to deliver our furniture out to Calabria and I can't speak highly enough about him.
A great person and we would use him again

We used Billy to get all we needed delivered to sort our apartment in Bergamotto He is very helpfull, he also got a few more things on the van, than we thought, at no extra cost, and that was a lot less than the other quotes we had got & he picked it up when he said he would,
contact him you wont be disappointed,
07967 981901 or 0121 313 2235

We'd recommend Billy too. He has dropped several things off for us at Collinetta and nothing is too much trouble. As nvjjov251 says you won't be disappointed. Billy is a lovely man.

Hi there, saw your post about Billy Cowie and gave him a call - it turns out he lives about 2 miles away from us ! I think we might use him to transport all our stuff to Bergamotto (D block) - wondered what the score is on electrical goods, ie kettle, toaster, iron etc. I have spare everything here at home and thought I would parcel them up to go if they will work the same. Would you mind letting me know ? And also, do you have any advice as far as home/contents insurance goes ? Many thanks, Ros

Hi
We used Billy to take everything, except white goods but including a big stainless steel bbq, for our 2bed Apt. What a great guy he is, not only very professional but friendly and takes great care of everything. I cannot recommend him high enough. Also concur with nvjjov251 about insurance and your elect goods will be fine, as an alternative to adaptors just change the plugs to suite the ones in your Apt. For some reason there are two sizes in Italy.
Here's to you having many happy exciting times in Calabria, we do.
Allen

Billy moved our stuff for us in April and was soooo good ! A really lovely man and 100% reliable. When we got to Bergamotto everything was already in the apartment, and most of it was in the right rooms too. Thanks also to John Hale and Chris Haffenden who helped with the unloading.

John and Ros

I offered him a cup of tea today at Pizzo Beach Club but he had already arranged to call elsewhere - just as well perhaps as there'd be no sugar to be found in my apartment!

Hi A&M
Got me concerned as I am expecting Billy to call for my things on Tuesday and to arrive in Calabria on Thursday.

Just got back from PBC last night having had 24 boxes of stuff delivered by Billy last Sunday. He was exactly where he said he would be, when he said he would be, and all our stuff arrived in the pristine condition it left us in the previous Thursday. He's a lovely man, and the service we got from him was flawless, and good value - exactly what we needed.

I've been trying to get in touch with Billy and emailed him twice over the last 2 weeks but no reply. Does anyone know if he is still transporting stuff to Calabria?
Maybe he is over there at the moment and not in touch with emails.
Thanks

Hi Mags, I contacted him recently and he was in Italy, back this weekend. Try him then by phone...perhaps he doesn't access e-mail much?

Regards
Bill

Hi Mags,
Spoke to Billy this morning, he is back at home at the moment, I mentioned to him that you were trying to contact him, he is taking a few bits for me to PBC in the next few weeks, he said he was going back again this week and next week.He replied to my email this morning aswell so if you have emailed him I'm sure he will be in touch with you. Hope you get sorted with him. Alan.
