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: 92%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 78%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 88%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 92%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 80%
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.

We moved from Colchester to South-West Wales, complete with motor bikes and plants in pots. The Goodmove crew were excellent from the loading to the unloading and distribution of boxes at the other end. Polite, friendly and professional all the way.
 
Cost: £2268
 

"Moving is very stressful but the service from Goodmove team made the actual move as stress-free as possible. We had no qualms about putting our possessions in their care; a very professional company and approach."

Our contract was to pack and remove selected items from our house, to be retained in store.
 
Cost: £500
 

"Packing team arrived on time, got straight into the job and kept going until finished, about 3 hours work.
Both men were friendly, polite, professional and efficient. they were careful to check with us if there was any doubt about what to pack and what to leave.
Nothing was broken or damaged during the packing, but our attention was drawn to a statue that had been the subject of a previous repair - before it was loaded into the container. All very sensible."

We moved from Germany back to England after doing the move the other way 6 years ago.
 
Cost: £4900
 

"The move went perfectly from the moment I picked up the phone for a quotation to the delivery of my husband and myself all the way from Germany. The lads were amazing, calm, fast, thorough and so polite. They felt like family after 4 days.

We used you to move us to the continent and now back 6 years later and I recommended Goodmoves to all my friends. Everyone who was moving used them and we all have 5* experiences."

Customer Review
 
Mid December move from Colchester to North Lincolnshire. The move took place over two days, with pre load on first day and drive to Lincolnshire and unloads on second. No issues or concerns to report and whole process went well.
 
Cost: £1710
 

"A friend had pointed us in the direction of the Good move team in Colchester after using them and so i took the recommendation.

All aspects of move went well. The offices staff were very helpful and efficient throughout.

Initial survey we easy, quick and answered al questions raised.

We had a home move from Colchester to North Lincolnshire in mid Dec 18.
As Ex - Forces well used to moving however we had been static for over 12 years and so "one of us" had acquired a fair bit more clobber than we had realised !

We chose to pre pack most ourselves and loaded up vast majority the day before completion.

Move day went well and Good move fielded a great team to assist on both days.
All very polite and hard working. Nothing was too much trouble.

A 2 bed Edwardian semi, contents of large shed, contents of garden office, some plants and garden furniture. Plus bringing our container out of storage too.

"We've used Goodmove twice, as we stored some of our furniture and belongings with them before we put our property on the market. We've been impressed with all our dealings with them, they've advised us on how to pack various things and supplied as many boxes, tape and packing paper as we needed. They've always been professional and friendly. Dave, Mark and Ryan were our removals men on the day and when they turned up we were in a last-minute panic! Not only were they polite and helped to calm us down, but they were also funny and made the day a much better experience. They clearly all got on well together and enjoyed their work too, even though they worked incredibly hard all day."

We moved from Great Horkesley to near Marks Tey from an 11 year house to a 400 year old house so lots of changes for the removal team had to overcome with change of height of ceilings, smaller doorways etc. They adapted brilliantly and nothing was a problem.

"GoodMove were amazing from start to finish. Ryan and the Team were professional, friendly, careful and worked so hard. They made our move run smoothly even through the stressful moments. They were punctual and explained everything well. This our second time we have used Good move but first time we have used the packing service, we will certainly use this again, having two young children we are so busy and we would not have the chance to pack as quickly and safely as they did. We would highly recommend. Please pass on our best wishes.
Many thanks to you all love from Susan, Chris, Sophia and Toby"

Customer Review
 
It was not an international move but one of some distance from East to West. The property being exited has been lived in form 25 years with an accumulation of goods of many sorts. The property being moved into was empty but a small distance from the road. The crew was highly efficient and very sympathetic in packing items of great emotional value. I would recommend them highly
 
Cost: £2000
 

"As with any move the sale followed by exchange and completion can be fraught and changeable. All were coped with satisfactorily without drama."

Moved from a 3 bed semi with lots of outbuildings to a 4 bed bungalow Lots of outside sheds etc
 
Cost: £834
 

"We had an amazing move. The guys turned up on time and were extremely polite. Introducing themselves. Excellent service. My husbands fears were allayed when two vans appeared. He didnít think they would get it all in despite me telling him they know what they are doing.

Our furniture and belongings were treated with care and they even emptied the clothes in the wardrobe and hung it up in the new place. Canít even get my husband to do that.

The guys were very courteous of our new home making sure they wiped their feet and put everything where we asked.

Couldnít have done anything more. Thank you all for the extremely efficient service including the office staff who made sure we had enough boxes and wrapping."
