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: 74%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the Code of Practice?
 
Description: 97%
Before the move, did your remover give you a clear description, price and timetable for the work to be carried out?
 
Loss or damage: 84%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 72%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 82%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 87%
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.

What should have been a relatively stress-free move was marred by unforeseen circumstances that had nothing to do with the removal co.
 
Cost: £524

"It was unfortunate that whilst our main belongings were going into storage certain furniture had been bought by a young couple and this should have been collected the week prior to our move. This did not happen it was being dealt with on the same day. How the removal lads coped. I don't know they were fantastic. "

David Dale have moved us several times in York and also transpacked many of our belongings to our 2nd home in south of France. We have probably used her services around 5 times or more.
 

"We have been incredibly impressed with the service we have received from the initial phone call through to the final item being delivered to our home/s. Great care and professionalism from all staff, at all times. It's great being able to contact David personally and we know that he ensures a smooth process throughout, brilliant company."

Delivery address access.
 

"At delivery address the staff had to park the lorry at some distance due to the size of street. Staff accomplished their duties promptly and safety. Note: Consider include a second cart in the lorry. This will help speed up the good downloading from truck."

Removal of mainly bed room and dining room furniture and boxes of belonging from bungalow in Ripon to Deal, Kent. Removers unable to use side ramp due to inconvenient position of driveway, at destination.
 
Cost: £1257

"The team worked efficiently and professionally. Unfortunately they didn't have the correct phone no of destination and arrived a bit earlier than expected. I was concerned that you don't seem to have a policy of not smoking in the back of the van with the furniture etc. being there. "

The move went extremely well, considering the interacting challenge of a force a safe crossing the finish of Firth of Clyde to Arran, and unloading the van in torrential rain also.
 

"Nigel and Kieron were superb in the way they handled the move, especially at the Arron end in difficult conditions. Their colleague who helped load us up at Ripon was equally hardworking and helpful. They all did a brilliant job. Apologies – do not know the name of the third guy who helped load us up at Ripon."

David Dale Removals took delivery of goods purchased and stored them securely. One all goods had been received by them. They were shipped from the U.K. to Spain.
 

"I received an excellent service from start to finish. All of my questions were answered promptly throughout the process. Delivery took place on time and date as arranged. The delivery team were excellent. Well organised and a pleasure. David Dale looked after all my queries and made what could have been a stressful situation stress free. I would definitely use their services again."

Moved from large detached house to a similar one. Access at old house ok but in a small Cul-de-Sac, which make packing and access for resident and company quite difficult.
 

"Happy with most aspects. Issues: - during surveyor’s visit we agreed a 3 day timeslot, this then turned into 5 days, I only found out when I thought to confirm the details when booking. We were able to accommodate this, but he could have been a old problem. - David was going to call us both before the move to discuss strategies but forgot. It would have been helpful to have her the discussion. We were asked to keep all the packing paper and put it in boxes, which would to collected later with the other empty boxes but in the end we were told only empty boxes could be taken. Crew move fine. Manager not the friendliest or most helpful person. I email was varying on. "

I moved my belongings from a second floor apartment and most has gone into storage. A lot of stairs to go up and down and also on a very busy road.
 

"My parents have used the removal company twice and once again they offered on outstanding service making my day so much easier. I found the guys to be well presented, on time, polite and very particular about the goods they were moving. Full of praise for them all and would highly recommend David Dale Removals."

My husband has a terminal illness and the move potentially could have been very stressful, however, the team from David Dale were wonderful, packing for me, load and unloading at our new house.
 
Cost: £3100

"We are extremely grateful to our team – we had a laugh and if something vital got packed that we needed it was quickly found again. They were sensitive to our specific situation but were incredibly efficient and knowledgeable. Apart from disturbing David’s lunch hour! On one occasion to collect boxes we could not have been more grateful."
