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.

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.

Sale of property in Kent - whole household of furniture and possession collected, put into storage for 2 weeks, delivered to new home in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, when emptying old house and delivering to new house on times specified.
 
Cost: £2116

"I had a complicated move with a very difficult buyer of my property who made demands then held up the sale. I couldn't, therefore, go with my original moving date. Andrews were very understanding and in the end my furniture had to go into storage for 2 weeks. Andrews were helpful and throughout made me feel I had made the right decision in choosing this company, my thanks to everyone at Andrews."

Moved from Broadstairs (4 bed house) to Gillingham.
Required dismantling of 3 large wardrobes, dismantling 2 television from wall fixings, 3 double beds, study furniture 2 large steel cupboard and garden tools , along with about 100 boxes.
 
Cost: £1620

"Right from the start Andrews of kent were very professional courteous and polite at all times.
When the team arrived on day for dismantling furniture we felt so re-assured and happy we had made the right decision Jason, Tyrone and Glynn worked tiredlessly for all 3 days of our move not once complaining of anything.
Their smiles even while being breathless and sweaty from all the exertion was so re-assuring and calmed us down after weeks of stressful sorting and packing.
we cannot praise them enough very highly recommended 5 stars!!"

Andrews moved me from kent to carnwall. The Kent property had narrow road to load onto, but the drive was very competent and parked the huge removal van with accuracy.
 
Cost: £2244

"My two removal men were just brilliant! Happy and helpful. It was an exhaust time, but they never complain. They worked hard and made sure that the contents were placed where I wanted them. Brilliant service. Thankyou so much Karl & John."
