About Us


With over 90 years of experience of moving homes locally, nationally and internationally, GB Liners is the safe choice.

We recognise this is a people business and the quality of the people makes the difference. So we only have full-time, highly trained staff who are given the best facilities, equipment and materials to do the job.

We set out to provide excellent value for money and a trouble free move which almost becomes enjoyable rather than something to be looked forward to with apprehension.

Give us a call on 0131 656 6226.
     
 
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: 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: 97%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 91%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 95%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 99%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 88%
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.

Move contents of a three bedroom flat into store; store for approx 5 months; then move out of store and into a new house about 30 miles away.
I don't have details and costs to have, but acceptable and with the original estimate.
 

"Excellent service, first rate.
I would recommend GB Liners to anyone who needs to move and/or store furniture and effects.
The removal team were friendly and efficient.
For the service provided the price was by no means too much and was within the original estimate I received before the move."

They arrived on time in snow and ice, the road was very snowy and thick ice outside the house but being professionals they managed with ease, speed and cheerfulness.
From Scotland to Somerset.

Customer Review
 
Personally I had worked extremely hard, packing and positioning items ready for the move. So the three guys from G B Liners did not face that many challenges on the day, But everything they did was conducted excellently, with few problems.
 

"From the moment Edinburgh manager, Andrew Walker, cause to access the removal estimate, we knew we'd chosen the right company to move us. He whole experience was through, professional and friendly from start to finish. Brain was part of the team on day 1, moving from Scotland his experience helping to smooth the process, but overall Dan and Jay were the mainstays on both days of the move. They worked hard, made things as enjoyable as much as a house move can get, were friendly, communicative, polite and extremely business like. "

Went smoothly.
Picked up from previous address in Bonnyrigg, Midlothian. In storage for a week, delivered as a agreed to Tramont.
 
Cost: £1680

"My wife and I are 81.

We first thought we could do the removal on our own with family help.

Very glad we didn't when we saw how complex on operation it was.

Staff prompt; skillful; swift and presentable.

No casualties and price fair."

1 truck Monday 8:30am - 3.30pm empty all the house leaving beds and TV.
1 smaller truck Tuesday a.m. for garage,flower pots, beds and TV.
2nd and 3rd storey of Victorian flat, 30 steps into flat, spiral staircase to 3rd floor.
 
Cost: £1600

"Men on both days worked incredibly hard. All were very help full and polite. Some tricky manoevres down spiral staircase, with lots of problems to resolve. Amazing that they could keep up this work rate throughout the day.

Into our new house they continued to stick to their task with some humour and lots of energy.

Great band of guys."
