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: 95%
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: 95%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 86%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 92%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 97%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 89%
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 moved home on a cold, wet and blustery windy day, however although our choice of moving day was not good, our choice of removal firms was excellent.
 
Cost: £529
 

"Although we thought we were quite well organised for our move, the two very pleasant Hilderbrand’s removal men, were extremely well organised. They surveyed our boxes and furniture to be moved and quickly worked out their moving stratergy, nothing was too much trouble and they had a good sense of humour whilst moving items in the wind and rain.
Although our funds went thru quickly we had a long delay in gaining access to our new home, spending approx 2 hours sitting in our car and the guys in their vans, nothing was too much trouble and Hilderbrand’s staff were polite, friendly, and very helpful making our move go very smoothly
If we did not like our new home so much, and thought we would ever move again, which we have no intention of doing, we would definitely use Hilderbrand’s again, and would not hesitate to recommend them."

This was a slightly complicated move in that our daughter was setting up a new house and we were giving her some of our excess furniture. The service was excellent and extremely helpful.

"We felt the company gave us personal service care, and were extremely helpful throughout what can be a rather stressful process.

We would certainly recommend and would be our first option in any future move."

From a large 5 bedroom to a small 3 bedroom house.
 
Cost: £850
 

"We had done most of the packing up but the guys did a great job of getting everything into the van. Not so easy the other end as much tighter access and awkward bends. Many items brought in around the back. A good service from some a hard working and careful team."

Hildebrands helped us on our first house move from Surrey to Kent. We booked in with them because of the reviews on Google.

"Communication with Penny and James was fantastic and easy, and James was very keen to listen to our requirements in order to offer the most appropriate removal solution for our situation. The two guys who arrived (Phil and Phil) were great, easy going and made you feel pretty relaxed on what is a stressful day. They covered all the furniture with thick sheets to prevent damage and all in all it was a great service we'd use again."

House move from rural location, to town house.
 
Cost: £1140
 

"This is the second time we have used Hilderbrands to move house. They are a very professional company from start to finish and we would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone.

Snow arrived on removal day, making the move extremely difficult and almost impossible, however as the rest of the country ground to a halt, Hilderbrands went above and beyond to ensure that we were able to complete the move on time. James, Carol and Merlin all extremely polite, courteous and helpful working their hardest throughout the day. We were super grateful.

Move from central sittingbourne to Iwade. Family of four. We packed our items ourselves but plenty of boxes and tape were provided prior to the move.
 
Cost: £890
 

"Move within Kent. Punctual staff, dry professional, speedy, no fuss. The move day was completely stress free. Would highly recommend this service. Well worth the money!"

I moved from a bungalow in Whitstable Kent to a house in Leek, Staffordshire. The move involved specialist packing and handling of items of furniture as well as many very fragile items.
 
Cost: £2596
 

"From first contacting Hilderbrands, they were courteous, professional and very supportive. The quality of service was exceptional and nothing was too much trouble throughout a long and protracted house sale and eventual move at short notice. I can't thank James Hilderbrand and his team enough!
"
 
 
Team:

We decided to have the packing and dismantling of beds and wardrobe as well as the move, this was so much easier than trying to find time to do it ourselves.

"As moving is a very stressful procedure, having Hilderbrands do the packing and everything to do with that made our lives much easier to cope with."

Moving from a 3 bed house to similar size with lots of heavy furniture
 
Cost: £450
 

"Staff were amazing. To start Pat who came to give the quote was very polite, friendly and informative, he really put me at ease and wasn’t going in for a hard sell. We had two young lads named Phill & Phill doing the removals and from start to end they were great! They were polite, extremely hardworking and nothing was too much. Really friendly lads and wouldn’t hesitate to use you guys again for our next move."
 
 
Team:
Phill and Phill delivery guys, sales man was Pat. All excellent and clearly enjoy their jobs.

Pack and move house including some heavy gym equipment

"I found there were either very cheap (dodgy?) companies or others who were more impressive but also more expensive. Hilderbrands were very good value in this second group and were friendly thorough and flexible in planning. Guys on the day were great, very competent and also nice."

Customer Review
 
We moved from a three-storey Victorian house to a two-storey new build. We had lots of large pieces of furniture (including large sofas and large artwork). The team arrived to do all the packing on one day and then finished the remaining packing on the second day when they loaded up most of our contents into one large lorry. On the day of completion, they loaded the remaining contents of our house into a smaller lorry and drove both lorries across to our new house to await the requisite phone calls from our solicitor. They unloaded both lorries in one afternoon and came back a few days later to collect all the boxes that we had unpacked.

"The whole experience of working with Hilderbrands was positive from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble. They are a great team and were always friendly, efficient and professional. They were very reassuring to have around and made it so easy for us to navigate the logistics of moving. The team packed for us, moved the contents of our house over a period of two days in two lorries and worked hard to ensure we were unloaded and moved in as quickly as possible. They took great care with our valuables and we had no breakages. They handled large items of furniture with skill and were not daunted by tight corners, turning staircases etc. Can't recommend them highly enough."

I chose Hilderbrands to remove and store the contents of a rental property which was being refurbished.

"I am very happy with the service they provided and the staff were exceptionally helpful and cheerful under rather difficult circumstances. I would confidently recommend this company. They were helpful, punctual, professional and courteous."

Just a short local move but with access issues on the arrival, vehicles arranged to suit

"Utterly professional, great team, moved us faster than we could have hoped. As they were at pains to tell us, not the cheapest available - although not by a great deal - but the extra £150 or so was a price well worth paying."

I had to put my furniture into store. I was very unhappy and unsure about this, but the packer showed me exactly where the furniture was put. It was stored well and I can only say it was an excellent service.

"Same remarks as before"
 
 
Team:
I can't remember. One was Polish. Two excellent men.
