Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Code of Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Code of practice: 94%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the Code of Practice?
 
Description: 100%
Before the move, did your remover give you a clear description, price and timetable for the work to be carried out?
 
Loss or damage: 96%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 87%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 94%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 95%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 86%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the procedure for making claims and to whom complaints should be referred?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

A challenging move from storage to a 5 storey town house with limited parking is the centre of town. The removers were absolutely brilliant at getting my goods inside in very difficult circumstances.
 
Cost: £618

"An absolutely brilliant team. Initially only 2 removers came with the van but a 3rd was called for in view of the challenges as mentioned above. Despite these difficult circumstances they worked tirelessly with good humor and were so professional in both conduct and expertise they got amazingly large and heavy items around tiny stair returns. All awesomely good from start to finish."

Whole house move within a distance of 15 miles, pre-removal of various items on day prior to move was very helpful.
 
Cost: £1166

"The service provided was generally excellent. The only criticism was that carpets were not protected as promised. Only staircases were protected at both properties. This would have been a major problem if the weather had not been fine. Removal operatives were extremely polite and very hard working."

Chris and John were lovely! They made the whole move less stressful by their friendly and helpful manner, as well as being exemplary in their work.
 

"I was impressed by the whole process of the move from the first phone call to the last item of furniture delivered to the new home. Mr. Evans has a wonderful team of employees and I wish them all every success in the future."

Moved from family home of 40 years, first to storage and then delivered all good to new address.
 

"I had never moved house as an adult, and was very upset. My wife was OK, but she was stressed as well. the team from Squab made the whole process much easier to cope with. We used a color coding of the boxes which appeared to work quite well."

Move from 4 bed detached into a 5 bed detached locally
 
Cost: £747

"The surveyor was very through and finally accessed our needs, recommending the appropriate service and he was the reason I chose Squab. All my contact with Vicky in the office was great and she was very efficient. The crew who did the move were fantastic, arriving on time and working very hard but with the upmost care I would have no hesitation in recommending Squab"

The move was from a 4 bedroomed house. Some furniture/possessions were taken for storage the remaining furniture/possessions were moved to a 2nd floor flat.
 
Cost: £2160

"We were very pleased with the whole moving experience. The packing was done in a very careful manner. If there was any query with any item we were asked before it. Being put in a box. The delivery and unpacking was done quicker than we expected which meant we could start organising the flat sooner than we thought. The staff were very polite and hard working. We would certainly recommend Squab to our friends and relatives."
