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: 92%
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: 98%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 93%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 96%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 98%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 90%
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.

2 day move to Leeds from Bristol.
Difficulty moving some items in due to narrow front door and corridor area.
Full packing service.
 
Cost: £2245

"One issue on packing as a drawer was not emptied(only noticed after they had left.)
Crew moving in had to dismantle some furniture and had to work out how to maneuver some items into position.
However they persevered and worked hard to achieve a successful outcome.
Very pleased with the result."

Customer Review
 
We moved from a four storey house in Bristol to a small cottage in Devon which was already fully furnished.
GB Liners visited the cottage before quoting to understand the access challenges.
They gave two initial quotes and then a third as circumstances changed.
Snow and icy conditions on the day of moving did not dampen their spirits or 'can do' attitude.
 

"The GB Liners team were excellent, professional, friendly and they had a positive attitude that really helped smooth over what could have been a very stressful and emotional move.
The piano was the heaviest that they had moved in five years and had to be transferred to the shuttle van too.
They did this with a coordinate show of strength, care and good humor.
One member of the team carefully packed all our paintings and joked that we were moving an art gallery.
I cannot recommend them highly enough."

Customer Review
 
Snow! We were scheduled to move over 2 days - being mostly packed up on 1st March, and remainder to be packed up and taken to new home on 2nd March.
Completion had to be delayed until 5th March as GB Liners were unable to travel to us on 2nd March.
 
Cost: £1643

"Neil Caroline and Adam Djeebet worked incredibly hard on both days of our move.
They were always helpful and friendly and managed to keep calm when it started to snow on the afternoon of 1st March.
Due to Hazardous road condition and the UK being on "Red Alert", we were friendly moved into our property on Monday, 5th March.
We completely understood the need for a change of date and respect GB Liners decision to put staff safety as the highest priority.
Brilliant company."

Move from suburban semi rural to rural farm house off a lane in countryside.
Right angle turn to stairs at start which caused some logistical challenges for our removal men.
Snow on the day also didn't help.
 
Cost: £2195

"Our removal men, Adam and Ken were courteous,humorous, and highly efficient,a credit to the company.
Our move took 3 days and was completed without fuss,smoothly and with high attention to detail.
Our house contents needed to be transferred from large lorry to a transit van because of the shifting of our new property,the lane,our long drive and the horrible weather conditions.
All was accomplished most skillfully. Our thanks to office staff(Ruth and Sam) and again Adam and Ken."

Everything was done with minimal fuss or bother to us.
Tough job.
