About Us

     
 
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: 91%
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: 93%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 69%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 83%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 89%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 68%
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.

We moved a large 5 bed house with a lot of furniture and personal belongings.

" The service was exemplary. The men were courteous, professional, hard working, on time, clean and tidy - EVERYTHING we could of wished for. WH COX were by far the best local company and I would recommend them to anyone moving house. Large or Small - the employees looked after your every requirement in a timely manner. Thankyou - you made our move smooth and efficient. "

from bucks to dorset with two weeks storage in between

" Very good experience apart from being told in an email that removal men would arrive between 8 and 9am, only to arrive 11am, causing some inconvenience. It seems we were sent the wrong automated email.

Although receiving a verbal apology, we were disappointed not to receive a written apology with some gesture, such as a small refund or voucher.

Apart from this, every aspect of the move and storage were very good. "

Our move was a local one, with packing and part loading on day 1, and finishing packing/loading and moving on day two. There was a delay in getting the keys on day 2, because of a mistake by the solicitors, so there was a lot of waiting around, but our removal guys were great and really patient.
 
Cost: £1250
 

" Really good friendly service, no complaints at all "

We were moving a short distance from our little 2 bed house into a 1930s style do''er upper , we have lived there for almost 24 years, so long overdue for a move. Very excited about our future plans.

" Stephen and his office team were really helpful, they stepped in at the last minute, as our original companies couldn't meet the dates we had to coincide with other parties.

When we spoke to office team they were really good and nothing seemed a problem, even though we were in a bit of a panic, cannot thank them enough.

Morning of move the guys turned up at time arranged and got straight on with removing, they were friendly and very helpful, we just supplied the teas and coffees and they motored on.

A fairly straightforward move requirement from near London to the South coast. Some furniture, a piano, and LOTS of boxes and bits and pieces.
 
Cost: £1000
 

" We had a couple of quotes for this straightforward move. One was really silly and far too expensive and I really thought the vendor was trying it on. Cox seemed good value and the on line reviews were good so we went with Stephen's team. The assessment and quote process was done professionally and made us feel that we would not be nickle and dime'd if, as was likely, we had some minor changes on the day on goods to be moved. Came the day of the move, the lorry turned up on time and the three guys were house trained, polite and worked hard and carefully to load our stuff before they set off on their drive to the seaside. I was waiting for them when they came and we did the process in reverse of their unloading, stacking boxes where I requested, making the bed and moving the relevant furniture where requested. The piano proved a challenge to get into the desired room but Brian thought the issue through and with some careful movement we succeeded. The whole process was as stress free as these things can be and I'd like to thank the Cox's team for their help and hard work. "

Full 4 bed house move including large piano, dismantle and re-assemble beds and large furniture.
 
Cost: £1000
 

" Absolutely delighted with the firm. Family run business and extremely friendly and helpful staff.

Move went smoothly and the team looking after us were simply amazing. Our friends had recommended Mr Cox to us and we will certainly be doing the same.

Great job and thanks a lot.

I couldn''t have asked for a better team, hard working, friendly and very helpful. Made every effort to fit the contents of my house into a storage space that could easily have been too small.

" As above, a very good experience, every effort made to be helpful. Good communication from estimation to office liaison to removal personnel "

Local move including packing and removal of all household goods. Included reassembling of trampoline.
 
Cost: £1200
 

" From start to finish, the team from WH Cox provided us with an excellent service. We have moved a lot in the last few years and were very impressed with the professionalism and helpfulness of the team who all worked well together. They were punctual and worked efficiently and to time, checking regularly if they had any queries. As we were a local move, they loaded a large proportion of our goods the night before so that half of the loading was completed before the move day which made things quicker for unloading into our new property.

Only thing I would say is that they provided information on terms and conditions, insurance etc but did not got through this in detail with me. However, we did not feel we needed this at the time.

I would highly recommend this company to others - they were also competitively priced.

Local move over 3 days
 
Cost: £2136
 

" Excellent service by friendly and efficient staff. Just a little too enthusiastic in packing (packed car keys!), but perhaps we should have prepared better by clearly separating items not to be packed.

Clearer marking of boxes - i.e. Summarise contents rather than simply state room from which removed. Not all moves are like to like! In our case we were moving back into a renovated Bungalow that was not fully finished and therefore needed to be able to identify what was essential and what not. "

household removal from south bucks to devon
 
Cost: £2100
 

" we were impressed that the first question we were asked was about the access at the delivery address. We realised that this was critical to the whole job and the pricing. the team on the day were excellent. our only negative comment was that it was too much work for two people to drive the distance and do all the offloading in one day. They worked incredibly hard and in our view at least a 3 person job. "

We moved from a 3 bed semi detached house and had several difficult items to be moved. One being a large expensive glass table and a very heavy stand. The three removal men were excellent and moved it with complete ease and nothing was too heavy or trouble. We also had 2 fish tanks and again they removed these with such care and also considered the timing of when to move as was extremely cold that day. Both were tropical fish tanks.
 
Cost: £900
 

" They had respect for our possessions too and took great care . I loved their can do attitude and nothing was too much trouble. They also went above board and helped us put the glass table top on the stand.

They made our moving in day easy and move smoothly. Which is normally a very stressful day.
Would recommend this company and definitely use again. "
