We were moving from Angus to Dundee, had a bit of solid oak furniture to move some which needed unassembled then reassembled.

"I found the firm very professional. They were great at communicating, keeping in touch and giving me all the information I needed. They were very accommodating especially as I didn't have all the information they needed right away. The two men who came on the date were early and worked hard all day. They were very friendly and followed all covid rules"

Move from Cliffburn area of Arbroath to Locking Castle in Weston- Super - Mare. This meant a 2 stage journey for the crew. They arrived promptly as agreed at the new site and worked methodically, cheerfully and with all due care.
 
Cost: £2508
 

"The removers were very methodical, taking great care of the items being moved. On arrival at the new address, items were deposited in the designated room or outbuilding. Special care was taken by providing coverings for items such as mattresses etc. A very satisfactory process - start to finish."

Excellent - well-planned - trouble free. A very professional, yet friendly service at all stages from first review visit through to delivery.
 
Cost: £5500
 

"Difficult to say much more than what I've said above. We were first visited by the owner of the business to evaluate the job and enable him to produce a quote - in the course of the visit he gave us a good idea of what to expect. We accepted the quote. A week or so later his team of three arrived and spent two days packing and loading the vans. Our possessions were taken into his store to await delivery in London when we were back there and Covid restrictions made it safe. We were kept informed throughout. The team arrived in London on time and unloaded the lorry according to our instructions. Every member of staff with whom we had contact in person, over the phone and by email was efficient, polite and friendly. Altogether a much easier experience than we had expected."

Two day move using two smaller vans with multiple trips. The move was a couple of miles using single track roads.
 
Cost: £2000
 

"Very friendly, informative and professional all the way through the process. The move was conducted during the worst two days of weather I've seen in the last decade yet it was done expertly and without complaint. Highly recommended."

Moving sentimental items and furniture from my parents house who passed away, before it goes on the market. monifieth to Glasgow Also a grandfather clock from my grandparents in Brechin to Glasgow.

"I cannot recommend Blacks of Brechin highly enough.
The care and compassion they showed and the support they provided during a very emotionally difficult time was second to none.
They were professional, knowledgeable, smart and reliable.
They went above and beyond my expectations .
The move was quick efficient and stress free . They treated my possessions with great care and respect.
Very fairly and competitively priced.
Nothing was too much trouble for the boys .
Amazing service especially during such difficult times during covid 19
and the restrictions of lockdown.
A family business that cares about your family.
Thank you Black’s of Brechin."

House move.

"I found Blacks of Brechin to be an excellent company to deal with. They’ve been at it a long time and know their job inside out. Service was excellent and the price competitive. Moving house can be quite stressful, but Blacks of Brechin certainly didn’t add to this."

Customer Review
 
This was a small domestic removal from a bungalow that was being sold to a house that is currently occupied. The move took place within the same town, and involved some repositioning of furniture within the occupied property.
 
Cost: £150
 

"This is the fourth time I have used Blacks of Brechin for removals. Requesting a removal quote Is very straightforward whether it be a small or large removal. Information regarding quote, code of conduct, insurance etc is emailed straight away. Once the quote is accepted and a date booked you are kept informed as to the time the removal staff will arrive, how possessions will be packed etc. I find this company’s staff to be very professional and courteous. The quote is reasonably priced and flexible if need be. Before the removal staff leave your property they make sure you are happy with where items have been placed. If required they supply boxes for pictures, wardrobe boxes for clothing, mattress sacks etc and they take great care of your possessions. I will certainly use them again in the future."

Used Black’s to move when we sold our house, to move into temporary accommodation with belongings into their storage and then 5 months later into a new build 100 miles away.

"
Whole process was handled extremely professionally and smoothly with no issues whatsoever.
Absolutely no breakages or damage - removers were pleasant, helpful and hardworking.
Would certainly recommend them.
Couldn’t have been better."

A large move with lots of small items already packed and some awkward and heavy items which required care and attention when being moved.

"Very professional service from the day of the quote until the end of the move.

What can be a very stressful day our fears were allayed when the two gentlemen outlined how they would carry out move.

Throughout the two guys engaged us and kept us calm with their upbeat nature. At no time from the start of the move did we feel that they were not in control.

If there is any advice I would say is, don’t cut corners go for the professional every time. Minimal difference in price but an absolute piece of mind."

Customer Review
 
We downsized from a very rural location to a town with 2 kids,2 dogs and a granny. We had a lot of very fragile items as family members are metal detectorists and mudlarkers. It was also complicated by the fact both children are autistic and struggled with the move and their possessions being packed and handled by strangers.
 
Cost: £1200
 

"Blacks are a long established firm in our area and often, these type of companies can get complacent and take for granted repeat custom out of customer habit. Not so in this case.

I have used Blacks 3 times in the last 20 years and the service has not slipped at all and it is why we went back for a 4th time. From the first phonecall they are polite,patient and make you feel at ease. Everything is explained thoroughly and you are talked through your options. You are given plenty of time to read the comprehensive information pack about their services that you are sent and are encouraged to talk them through if you wish.

The initial site survey to our property was conducted swiftly and professionally and you were left feeling that you would be in capable, experienced hands.

The pricing is clear and understandable and the accompanying paperwork easy to read. No hidden "extras" thrown in along the way. The price quoted was the price paid. Which was reassuring with a tight budget.

Blacks keep you informed and advised right up to move day and are happy to deal with your questions and are quick to respond to emails and telephone calls.

We were given great advice on how many boxes and packing materials we would need and these were delivered promptly and even emergency supplies delivered when we had a last minute packing panic a couple of days before.

Move day was quick,efficient and the large house emptied swiftly and all furniture and boxes removed,packed and on board seamlessly. Our belongings were treated with great respect and expertly handled. Seeing large pieces of furniture leave at speed made you feel you were in safe hands. No damage, no fuss.

Plenty of sheets and blankets were laid down to keep things clean and tidy whilst the house was being cleared.

The crew were polite and patient with the waiting times caused by banks and solicitors between properties and remained good humoured and professional into a tiring and long,cold autumn day.

On a personal note, the crew were patient and kind to our youngest autistic child who was around some of the time and gave him space to cope and several times stopped work and answered him with respect when he was anxious for his possessions. It was a small thing but made a huge difference to him and us.

Selling and moving can be hugely stressful but Blacks made this element calm and straightforward from start to finish which took a bit of pressure off. Very happy to recommend their services."

Customer Review
 
Our move was quite a distance - Peterborough to Paisley. Move involved: 4 bedroomed house including: garden furniture, pots, plants and contents of large shed. We have quite a lot of vinyl records which are very heavy and need to be carefully handled.
 
Cost: £2800
 

"Due to logistics it wasn't practical for Blacks to visit our home to provide a quote. However, this was arranged painlessly by Gillian over the phone.
We received our quotes quickly and they were easy to follow & understand.
The removal was done over 3 days and we were kept updated with arrival times.
The removal men were very friendly and accommodating - a good bit of banter whilst remaining professional and an asset to the Company. They put us at ease and just got on with the job in hand!!

There was no damage or breakages to any of our possessions.

They took care of our vinyl record collection, which is very heavy and needed careful handling.
And, if we made them aware of any special items e.g my wedding dress... they took extra care.

As we were moving to a smaller house (4 bed to 3), we didn't have as much room to put things into specific rooms but when unpacking they asked us where we would like things put and in which room.

I would have no hesitation in using Blacks of Brechin again or recommending them to others.

Special mention to Gillian, Scott & Dean."

Move out of storage in Brechin to a house in Bristol
 
Cost: £3200
 

"First things first. Gillian in the Administrative Office is amazing. Her knowledge and attention to detail and her ability to make things less stressful were truly amazing, thank you.

The move into storage seemed to go well and the removal from Scotland to England happened exactly as scheduled. The two man crew worked well together to offload and worked hard. They were very respectful of my home and belongings.

One or two things that I have unpacked have been rather randomly packed but there have been no breakages or damage.

I would recommend Blacks."

Cost: £780
 

"From start to finish Blacks of Brechin Removals were highly professional and extremely helpful. The estimating process was undertaken punctually and costs received early giving plenty of time to arrange dates and time for the move.

Office staff were very helpful prior to and after the move.

The removal vehicle arrived on time and both men loaded and offloaded the house contents setting them in the house where directed. No breakages at all and the move was finished promptly.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the company.

After living at our previous address for over 18 years, a move was always going to be a huge wrench, especially are we are fairly productive artists, so had lots of "art" as well as all the usual stuff. The concern was, would this "precious" work be handled with care. We needed have no fear on this issue as every single item was transported completely intact. Then there were all the garden plants etc. It all took two full days and the small team worked, in our opinion, well beyond the expected effort and skill and with good grace and a happy disposition.
 
Cost: £2163
 

"From our first introduction from the assessor, the clear information and help from the admin staff and the lively, punctual and very hard working removers, all signs were good that we'd chosen well. The company had a really good team spirit and issues in any of the areas were no problem to them. They all simply made the job of moving house, almost a joy - and that's saying something. We can hardly praise them enough, and from the first tentative enquiry to the last item placed in our new address, we couldn't be more pleased. And good value for money too! All the removing team did an amazing amount of hard, yet skillful work, but we feel we have to single out Scott, who as a natural leader and energiser, set the pace and standards for the others. In the office, Gillian was the calm and super efficient organiser"

Our house move went well. It was a local move.

"The movers did turn up 1hour early but this actually went in our favour as we were ready to receive them and this helped us leave our old house before lunch and we were then able to hand in our keys to the estate agent and pick up new house keys.
Everything was packed well by the lads in the van. They worked very hard that day and were of great help to us. Our house move went well.

This is the second time I have used Blacks to move house. We were very happy with the help and support we received."
