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: 84%
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: 92%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 71%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 78%
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: 72%
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.

Customer Review
 
We were moving from the house we had lived in for 36 years so we had a lot of furniture, books, CDs, vinyl and other household goods. As well as the contents of a 4 bedroom house, we had garden furniture, bikes and a large number of potted plants. Our house had two flights of stairs.
 
Cost: £1114
 

"J & J Howe Removals and the guys who actually did the move coped with all of this in an extremely professional and efficient way. From dropping off boxes and packing materials well in advance to arranging the removal over two days to make what can be a stressful time very manageable. Our new house is 50 miles away and by the time we had collected the keys, the removal vans were ready and waiting for us. The unpacking and moving into our new house was even quicker and more efficient. Many thanks for an excellent service.

Extremely professional and efficient in all respects. Everyone we dealt with was polite and conscientious. Although we received several quotations for our move, J & J Howe offered the best service and most competitive price. I would highly recommend J & J Howe for any removal needs."

House move from Perthshire to the Scottish Borders

"After a rather traumatic experience on a previous 'house move' with a large, well known removal firm, we were rather nervous about choosing one for our latest move. We decided to try a smaller firm, J&J Howe, and didn't have any regrets. From start to finish we and our house furnishings were treated with respect. Everything ran smoothly from the arrival of the van for the collection, to the delivery of our belongings at the other end. The men we were allocated worked well as a team and were also friendly and very helpful. We would highly recommend this company and would happily use them again."

1. Removal of some furniture to Crieff 2. Removal of most furniture from Murthly, near Perth, to our new home in a village close to the city of Worcester; this move included your full packing service
 
Cost: £3737
 

"First, apologies for the delay in responding. Sam will smile and not be surprised that it has taken us so long and we have still not yet finished unpacking! One lamp was broken.
Sam, George and James are a credit to your company: efficient, friendly, very easy to get along with, hard-working,very, very helpful. Sam's gentle smile never faltered, while George worked away quietly. James worked away by himself in our house and he and George did an excellent job of our mini-move to Crieff.
Thanks to Mike Curtis too, for overseeing the move and providing all the boxes and packing tape; and handling the commercial end.
Thanks also especially to Matt for agreeing that a number of items that we could not dispose of ourselves would be taken for possible auction. We are waiting to hear the outcome of that.
Please convey our thanks and warm good wishes to your excellent Team.

Customer Review
 
Moving from a 4 bedroom house on the west coast of Scotland over to Perthshire. We were moving from a remote location with single track roads that were not the easiest to navigate. The move would happen over 2 days due to distance, packing on the Tuesday and delivery on the Wednesday.
 
Cost: £1322
 

"JJ Howe Removals provided a professional service from the moment I called for a quotation. I couldn't provide a confirmed date at the time and asked them to pencil one in - this was no problem. They were the first company back to me with a quotation and time scales - nothing was too much trouble. The removal guys arrived promptly and managed to get the lorry into the drive despite being on a single track road with narrow gates. At no time did they complain or make us feel the move was any problem. Throughout the packing the guys were friendly, polite and asked questions along the way to make sure all was packed well. Our new property was even harder to access due to the driveway and the guys couldn't get as close to the property as wanted - but again did not complain once and called in extra help to get the job done. I couldn't fault the hard work these guys put in."

I was moving from a four bedroom house to a two bedroom flat, my sofa was a large bedsettee.
 
Cost: £10269
 

"Don and James did their best to get it into the flat even removing the front door, so they went the extra mile in their efforts but had to admit defeat in the end. All the staff at J&J Howe have been very helpful and polite

I was initially impressed by the fact that each removal man took the trouble to shake hands with me and introduce himself. They made the whole experience easier."

Move from Carnoustie to Edinburgh. Basic furniture plus piano.
 
Cost: £1063
 

"The 3 men arrived when they said they would.
As not all furniture was going they kept checking with us about individual items.
Everything packed securely.
Very efficient - finished in 2 hours.
The following day, 2 of the 3 form the previous day unloaded in heavy rain. Unfortunately they could not get as close to the property as we would have liked but again in two hours, everything was in place.
The piano was the most difficult and even when the dining room table was a fraction too big, they came up with the solution of removing the table top and putting it back before they left.
They were efficient and friendly and we could not have asked for a better team on both days.
