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: 92%
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: 94%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 71%
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: 70%
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.

Van load of mainly antique furniture to a cottage in Scotland.
 
Cost: £2016
 

"We changed the job significantly (added several large extra items) just a week before the move, hence needing a bigger vehicle than had been quoted for. The company adjusted the job on basis of a very reasonable and realistic extra fee. On arrival at the delivery end the team helped with moving a double bed at the property that was nothing to do with the removal job, and even though they were by then running very late due to massive M6 holdups on the way up. Overall a very professional outfit, well deserving of their strong local reputation. I would certainly use them again."

Moving from 4 bed detached to 4 bed semi about 3 miles away with an upright piano and a large planter with a fig tree
 
Cost: £1934
 

"Everything was easy from the initial visit to assess the contents, the estimate and arranging the date. Then the day before the move they came and packed and loaded a lot of stuff , making sure we had everything we needed for the night and the next morning. Then the next morning they packed and loaded the rest and then unloaded at the new house . They even assembled the beds. They were very friendly, helpful and empathetic"

We moved about 50 miles away, from a 3-bed semi to a 3-bed detached.
 
Cost: £930
 

"Excellent service from start to finish. We put some furniture in storage with WH Cox some months before the move, and this together with the move itself was handled very well. Communication was always clear and friendly, and the guys on the day were great.
Highly recommend."

Moved to the isle of Wight, so ferries had to be taken into consideration. The move was over two days.

"From the moment Mark came to give us a quote to delivery we received excellent service. The team were kind and understanding while still being professional. We took the packing service and James and Nick were very respectful of all our things and handled them with care.The loading and unloading was fast and everything was put in the correct rooms. One of the nice things was how quickly James and Nick new our names, not only was this a nice connection but obviously helped them with the packing of the rooms."

As mentioned above, but the whole team made it perfect

Moved us in 2015, Stored and moved belongings in 2019

"We used W H Cox to move us, nearly 4 years ago. They were great, reliable, lovely to deal with and competitively priced. It therefore made sense that when we needed to move out of our house for renovations and they offered storage, we did not hesitate to use them again. A lovely team to converse with, from the office staff to the removal people. We have only had a good experience, they are well priced and know their stuff!!"

House move within same town

"The service was brilliant. They were cost effective and well below one well known company in our area. Their team were professional and quick. They even let us enter the house and show are kids round before they started to unpack.

We were going to pack ourselves but I am so glad we didnt. The service was brilliant and only 1 wine glass casualty in the whole move!"

House Move from Buckinghamshire to Worcestershire
 
Cost: £929
 

"We got three quotes from BAR registered firms in Amersham and WH Cox was by far the most reasonable. Staff were all polite and hard working. Boxes were delivered in advance and the company was really easy to deal with.

The removers on the day arrived punctually and worked tirelessly. Most goods were transported really well. I had two beds that they were unable to dismantle. One of which I think had just been moved too many times before however one I think the guys contributed towards the problem. However it was eventually rectified.

Overall I was really happy with the service and cost and would not hesitate to recommend"
