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: 67%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the Code of Practice?
 
Description: 99%
Before the move, did your remover give you a clear description, price and timetable for the work to be carried out?
 
Loss or damage: 85%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 66%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 76%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 81%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 67%
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.

Small amount of furniture and goods from bungalow to 1st floor flat with lift. Distance approx 1 mile short notice arrangement (4 days)
 
Cost: £360

"Was told to expect an afternoon removal. Rang at 10 am to check likely time. Was told 'in less than 30 minutes'. Consequently the move was chaotic as we were not ready having not expected men to arrive until after lunch time. Wouldn't even have had any notice if I hadn't rang to check. A very stressful experience."

The move entailed carrying furniture down some tricky stairs. All handled safely, as we were on the first floor.
 
Cost: £660

"We found the whole process from start to finish very easy.
Nothing was too much trouble for Jim, and the lads on the day were brilliant and very friendly, helpful and seemed to enjoy their job.

They advised on certain aspects and were quick as well. We've used them twice before and will use again, but hopefully not for a long time, moving office keep us too busy."

Packing the fragile pieces, dismantling, beds and wardrobes and reassembling them. Congestion when downsizing but well handled.
 
Cost: £1400

"Cannot remember the names of the staff. Hopeless with names but they were pleasant lads, very obliging and efficient. They certainly had their work cutout on our move but fitted everything in the time frame. Very happy with service."
