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: 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: 90%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 79%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 84%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 90%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 79%
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.

Local house move from a large property into a flat with a very tight entrance. The team from ANTS were brilliant. They packed everything up perfectly on the Thursday and then undertook the move on Friday and were great. Super professional, all went smoothly. They made it completely stress free. Highly recommended.
 
Cost: £864

Customer Review
 
We moved from our one bedroom flat in a purpose built block to a ground floor conversion flat. A member of the staff visited us to provide a quote and answered all our questions. We were given a number of options which would suit our case. After selecting the option we wanted, we were promptly given a moving date at one of the dates we asked for. The move consisted of two days: first day for packing, the second day for moving packed items and furniture.We had quite a lot of items for a one bedroom flat but everything was packed really fast and the packing was professional and safe.

"The staff for moving the packed items and our furniture arrived the day after the packing day and they did a great job. They were both fast and careful. They took notice of all our requests and made sure that they were all fulfilled. For example, we asked them not to wear shoes in the bedroom of the flat we were moving out from and they made sure that no one walked into the room with their shoes on.

When furniture and packed items were carried into the new property, everything was carefully placed in the correct rooms and the staff helped us position furniture etc. Again, they were very careful to not to leave any footprints or mud on the floor on a rainy day.

The staff were always polite, attentive and professional.

After the move, they allowed us unpack in our own time, which helped a lot. We unpacked the boxes packed by them in about a week and called the company. They arrived the next day and picked up the boxes."

We moved from a 2 bed flat (with no lift) to a 3 bed house.

"The service was simply brilliant. We have always moved ourselves before, but with a toddler in tow, it would have been a nightmare.
Ants made the process as painless as possible and we were astonished at how fast the flat was packed up!"
 
 
Team:
can't remember - he was about to retire though if that helps? he packed the flat in record time and was really nice.

We moved from a 3 bed ground floor flat to a 4 floor house close by. We had some heavy white goods, a piano and a huge sofa bed in the mix in addition to the usual wardrobes, beds and other furniture.
 
Cost: £990
 

"We moved from a 3 bed ground floor flat to a 4 floor house close by. We had some heavy white goods, a piano and a huge sofa bed in the mix in addition to the usual wardrobes, beds and other furniture.

The team at Ants were professional and hardworking. In addition they were friendly and helpful. Moving is always stressful, especially with two small kids. Ants helped us prepare and made a huge effort to help us get things just right at the end of the move. I would be very happy to recommend this team!

I was very impressed with Ants Removals, I needed moving, storage and re delivery. Their containers were sealed and put into storage until my new place was ready.
 
Cost: £550
 

"I was reassured by seeing seals and how carefully my items were packaged with blankets.
Simon & Gallo were highly professional attentive and funny too but got the job done!
My sofa proved difficult intially on re delivery but Simon found a way to resolve matter!
I would definitely use Ants Removals again and happily recommend them to anyone in need of Removals or storage.

A move from a four bedroom house to a two bedroom cottage via storage.

"Having been let down by another removal company, I contacted Ants at very short notice.
The person who answered the phone (Nagoya) was amazingly calm and helpful. Someone came to give a quote that day which was speedily emailed to me. Dates were discussed and suggestions made about suitable options.
On the first removal date, the men were very efficient, friendly and good humoured. At one point five men were helping out. The second day was again efficiently concluded.
I was contacted regularly to discuss delivery to my new house, difficult because of the late exchange and completion. The most useful suggestion was not to have everything delivered from storage at once. Thank you for that. I was definitely less overwhelming in two loads.
Again, the men were helpful, efficient and good humoured.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Ants."

We used you to move a big fridge to the tip and take up a carpet from a bedroom and packed away books from shelves. Also moved 4 items of furniture internally to a different room.

"The team of 3 guys did a good and thorough job.
Removing the fridge was a challenge as very big and heavy. Doors needed removing and it was fiddly to get out of the kitchen and out of the house. Taking it to the tip was good.
Also you took up a carpet from a bedroom and packed away books from shelves. All good except the team didn't have the correct tools to take up the stapled underlay which was disappointing.
Polite and helpful men and a very efficient quoting and booking service. Also great that you could fit us in at such short notice."

Pack up majority of house contents mid week and put into storage, return when owners back from holiday and complete removal of contents including dismantling of beds etc. Unpack entire contents at new premises, put beds back together, and put labelled boxes in specific rooms.

"We had an absolutely brilliant experience with Ant's. They managed to fit us in at very short notice, were able to come and quote us very swiftly and were happy to pack up most of our house while we were away. The team were friendly, polite, efficient, trustworthy and extremely helpful and considerate and took a huge amount of hassle out of the moving experience. They put the beds back together and even managed to get a really awkward chest of drawers just where we wanted it to go, despite having to take the door off. Everything was well packaged up and secured well in the removal van.
They were also great value for money and we would highly recommend their services."
