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: 90%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the Code of Practice?
 
Description: 98%
Before the move, did your remover give you a clear description, price and timetable for the work to be carried out?

Claims procedure: 81%

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.

4 bed house move 7 miles. Very professional and helpful service from start to finish. Having been let down by others I approached Britannia at short notice. They provided a pro forma to enable me to get a quote straightaway, and having filled this in I was pleased that it proved to be accurate. The boxes artived on time as did the drivers who then carried our the move with a minimum of fuss there were no breakages or even near misses. Great service all round.
 
Cost: £1400
 

"See above, plus the drivers made some very helpful suggestions on the day.regarding.how best to move them. They also sequenced the work to enable a follow on clean to be carried out without having to wait for the end.

Thank you Britannia, I would definitely recommend you.

3 large heavy cast iron radiators moved from Cheltenham and Wiltshire to Somerset.

"I needed 3 very heavy cast iron radiators moving from two different locations to my home address. Britannia Lanes gave me a very competitive quote for moving these and carried out the work the following day. They dedicated two people to the job and even called in extra support for one radiator which was particularly heavy. They moved them to the place I wanted them and were friendly and cheerful."

Move from Somerset to Perthshire in Scotland immediately after the New Year.
 
Cost: £2340
 

"Least stressful part of the whole move. Driver and mate arrived promptly on the morning of packing and were ready to leave by 1pm. Arrived in Scotland the next day around 2pm as planned and they called to confirm their progress so we knew where they were up to. Very polite and efficient and nothing was too much trouble. Everything was packed appropriately and arrived undamaged and in good condition"

We moved a 2 bedroom apartment with study and utility room and many items still in boxes from a previous move from Clevedon to storage outside Bridgwater.

"Britannia were easy to get hold of to arrange an appointment to visit our property. The surveyor gave us a sense of confidence. We liked the easy nature of the company.


Our move wasn't too easy because the apartment is narrow, but is spread out over 4 floors with 3 flights of narrow stairs, with many packed boxes from our move from Thailand about 12 months before. There were a few items of furniture requiring dismantling in order to get them out of the front door.


The staff were very pleasant and efficient. They packed and moved half of the household out into storage on day one, mostly boxes, and on the second day moved the beds and heavier larger items of furniture.



They really do know how to pack the Luton vans and the storage facility very well to maximise space. A nice touch was using shrink wrap plastic that stuck to the carpets to protect them.

We were around to see them carefully handling our goods at both ends and I doubt very much that we will have any damage.

Worst weather for some weeks but the team did a great job. Some garden plants and stoneware had to be placed in a support van for delivery the week after the main move. The team together with the extra porters managed to get the household goods in at the new property. However, we discovered that a few items were slightly damaged and we will contact you about this later.
 
Cost: £3200
 

"The garden plants and stoneware arrived a day earlier than expected but there was damage to some plant pots and stoneware that fell over in transit due to not being adequately secured. We will contact you again about this.
Overall the move went well despite the appalling weather and the team worked very well together."

Short move of approx 5 miles. Reasonably easy loading location but with a few large and heavy items. More difficult unloading location (narrow road) and during a torrential rainstorm
 
Cost: £1200
 

"The 2 removers in the small van arrived promptly but due to a road accident on the route the van did not arrive for another 30 minutes. I showed the advanced party round explaining about various items and they confirmed in what order things would be done. They were very considerate in accommodating our need to keep our indoor pet cat in a room whilst they loaded and when we could move him to another. I think the loading may have taken longer than expected - a few very heavy items an a lot of boxes. Most rooms were not being totally cleared so there was the added difficulty or working round the items being left and they start had been delayed by late arrival. As the morning progressed so the weather became more and more awful. Once loading finished it was a 15 minute drive to property where, due to the narrowness of the road, parking is not at all easy. AS soon as the unloading began the weather, that was already bad, became even worse. However the furniture and boxes were brought in quickly and were in the main kept reasonably dry. The unloading was very speedy as I think the team struggled a bit with the unloading destination (parking and style of house) and certainly with the weather. We realise when it was too late that the mirrors had not been brought as requested and a couple of pieces suffered some very minor damage. All in all it was a good removal."

All goods had to first go into storage for 9 weeks. The company came and packed for us. Delivery to our new address went smoothly considering the narrow lane in which we live.

"The service was first class. The two gents carrying out the move were very good and hard working.
However I did find it strange how some of the goods were packed.
We did have two breakages, but apart from that an excellent service."

If you mean the men delivering,afraid only remember Paul. The other young man was extremely helpful.

Move from 2 bed to 3 bed property with 20 minute drive between locations.
 
Cost: £660
 

"Removal team arrived promptly and packed all items. Clothes were packed that we were not expecting to be packed which was a bonus since we were planning to take them in our car separately. On inspection of the property we left, we noticed some marks on the second bedroom door, possibly due to a large wardrobe.

On arrival at the new property boxes were placed in the correct rooms and everything was moved quickly and efficiently. The only disappointing issue regarding a toilet brush (with bleach) being packed upside down in a box full of shirts.

Otherwise, the team were friendly, polite and helpful and we were pleased with the speed of the work carried out, although more care could have been applied in some areas."

"I had wonderful service from Brittania Lanes. Without exception, from everyone who I spoke to over the phone, to the man who came to give me a quotation for my move, to the removal men themselves, all were so pleasant and helpful and did everything to accommodate my needs, with nothing seeming too much trouble. The move was done efficiently and speedily, the men were a joy to meet, and were so willing and helpful. I was impressed and well pleased.

My only negative comment is that communication within the firm seemed to be lacking in that when the visit was made to evaluate the price to be charged, I was told that a cover would be provided for the piano. But when the men arrived they had no knowledge even that a piano was to be moved so had brought no piano wheels or cover with them. This did not concern me in itself as they were so good at their job, but I was sorry for them having to carry such a heavy piece of furniture.

The price given for my removal was considerably higher than those from other firms I contacted, but I decided to go with Brittania Lanes because I'd been impressed by their competence and pleasantness at every level. I have no regrets about having chosen them and would recommend them to anyone."

Move of contents from a small-ish barn conversion, to a ''standard'' design house.
 
Cost: £520
 

"Around eight weeks ahead of my proposed move date, I went on line, simply to see which moving companies might be able to assist with the pick-up and delivery of my home contents. The move would be from Sherborne, Dorset, to Yeovil, Somerset.

A wide range of moving companies were accessible. I wanted to undertake the packing of my contents, extending to the purchase of cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, tape, etc, etc. My initial contact, via e-mail, extended to three moving companies, one independent, and locally based, one independent, with an operating base in East Anglia, but having national coverage, and one, Lanes Of Somerset, operating under the Britannia 'umbrella', while remaining family-owned and -managed. The local company failed to respond to my invitation to provide a quotation. The East Anglia-based company responded the next day, and offered to arrange to provide a quotation, while advising me that, due to the need for the service to be charged from the East Anglia base, the cost could be correspondingly higher than that levied by a more local provider. Lanes responded the next day, and offered to arrange to provide a quotation, via a visit which could be tailored to my availability. I duly accepted the offer of a visit.

The visit subsequently took place, extending to around an hour, in the course of which the assessor/surveyor went to great lengths both to set-out the offer, and also to comprehensively respond to any points for clarification which I raised.

The company's formal quotation was, as had been promised by the assessor/surveyor, sent to me the following day, via e-mail. I was more than content to accept the quotation, and to place the contents of my home in the hands of what appeared to be, and what, in the event, turned out to be, a highly competent and professional moving company.

The company kept me fully appraised of its preparations for its team of two to be with me on the identified date. The team arrived precisely on time, and proceeded to carefully, and purposefully, load the contents of my home on to the vehicle. At the delivery address, the contents were off-loaded with the same degree of care and purpose.

Moving home often is cited to be anything but uplifting. My experience, with Lanes Of Somerset, does suggest that if you choose a service provider wisely, the moving process can be positive, and, as was the case with my move, uplifting."

Moved from Bath to Frome.
 
Cost: £800
 

"It has been a good experience. I wish I had used Britannia when I moved from Leicestershire to Bath. I particularly liked that they had extra people to unpack when we reached our destination. Thatís a really good idea. The movers worked hard and were respectful of our belongings."
 
 
Team:
I didnít get their names but they were fantastic.

Largish house move (4 beds plus office) across the country, Somerset to Norfolk. Load included a 3 board model railway.
 
Cost: £4000
 

"This move was, by all reckoning, more than it looked, but was carried out with expediency, politeness, and efficiency. Nothing was too much, and Simon and James were a credit to your organisation."
