About Us

     
 
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: 73%
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: 93%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 76%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 86%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 94%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 73%
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.

Lots of man power. Didn't put protective floor covering. A couple of breakages. Courteous. Lots of lorries at one point which clogged up the road.

This was a challenging and short notice move from 1 property into storage and then from storage into the new property.

Customer Review
 
Standard domestic move less than one mile.
 
Cost: £845

"Chests of drawers were moved as complete units. Because they had to be tipped to get them in to the new property items shifted making some drawers very difficult to open. Given how tight it was to get furniture upstairs it would have been easier to move drawers separately and perhaps the dressing table unit would not have got damaged and the walls not as scuffed."

Move from a 4 bed detached house to a 2-bed 3rd floor flat with only a small passenger lift. The team did all the packing and it was very well done.
 
Cost: £959

"The team of 3 were very efficient and courteous and dealt with what was at times a difficult move and a tight dead-line on the final day."

Customer Review
 
Downsizing from property to smaller property 1/2 mile a way. Delays in money exchanged meant new property not available till 4 pm.
 

"Team worked well old property emptied by 1 pm. Explained to whites shortly afterward that new property could not be entered until maybe 4 pm. When new property became available multiple crews arrived so job was undertaken promptly."
