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: 97%
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: 98%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 89%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 98%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 97%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 89%
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.

Customer Review
 
3 Primrose Meadow, Moorland Road Indian Queens

"We were supplied three guys to help us move who were very hardworking, friendly and informative. They took great care moving our possessions from our old home and into our new one. However I made the mistake of not informing Christophers of some unexpected items that needed to be moved and some that were included on the itinerary but had been moved out already beforehand resulting in an additional charge. It could have been a bigger issue if a smaller removal lorry was used, fortunately a larger one was allocated. I should have re-read the instructions carefully in the days leading up to our move to avoid this situation."

MJ Christophers carried out commercial removal, this involved the delivery of items to multiple sites across the country.

"Excellent in all areas, from the initial enquiry to the guys working hard in hot conditions to deliver the items. Always helpful and flexible as required, reacting in a positive manner to overcome problems that arose."

Customer Review
 
It was a move of 300 miles approx. The lorry arrived at the designated time the two removal men were polite and courteous after quickly making an assessment of our home and contents, the lorry was planned, organised and precision loaded. Taking care to protect our contents during transportation. They worked continuously throughout the day taking care not to damage the property or the contents.
When we arrived the following day at our new property with the keys the lorry was already in position to unload. This again was to the required rooms and great care was taken. Excellent service.
 
Cost: £2264

"Our firs move in 39 years, we were both apprehensive about how the move would take place. After filling in the form supplied by M J Christophers we were contacted by an estimator who asked about the sizes of the cartons and furniture. He was then able to let us know straight away there would be a lorry available of the size required on our requested day.
When the removal men arrived Barry and Baron took over the move completely. After reassuring us that everything was just fine.
We were amazed how efficiently they both worked. Our load was quite low in furniture but high in curtains many which contained China all credit goes to Barry and Aaron. as we did not have one breakage. We would highly recommend M J Christophers and son for their professional approach to removals from the office staff special mention to Zeena for the special help given over the phone. To the safe delivery of our possessions at our new property. "

Move from Cornwall to the Midlands
 
Cost: £2249
 

"It was an absolute pleasure to deal with this company from start to finish. Mike Christophers was very polite when he visited us and very clear about everything.
On removal day, Mike, Barry and Aaron turned up punctually and moved everything with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of efficiency. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were all extremely courteous and polite throughout.
At the new house, only Barry and Aaron were involved and again they were punctual and efficient. The stairs in the house were not easy to negotiate as it is quite old but there were no complaints from either of them.
All items were moved in with no damage caused.
A real bonus for us in our dealings with Christophers was the fact that, despite not being able to exchange contracts until one working day before moving, the company was very patient with us. This was a big comfort and a number of other removers in Cornwall would not allow us to book until we had exchanged, which would have been impractical in our situation."

The move went very well. They had problems, due to cars being parked. It sorted they would have to carry objects across the road. They parked in the middle of the road and they provided a way to reach the pavement! Well done by Mark and Tom.
 
Cost: £755

"Mark and Tom introduced themselves. They inspected the bungalow and set to. They came on time. Fortunately, 3 of our children came to help. They finished about 5.30pm I would recommend Christophers to anyone. Mark and Tom were exceptional. "

Customer Review
 
I was moving from the marital home, after separation from my husband,to a rental property for a 6-month period prior to the completion of a new-build house. All my possessions were to be removed before my husband moved out so there were very specific instructions for the removal team. I had elected to do most of the packing myself, but the team kindly export packed pictures/lampstands/furniture on the day.
 
Cost: £960
 

"The removal team were extremely efficient, kind, patient and most understanding of the emotional situation I was facing. The office staff were also very kind and co-operative, given that we had very short notice to move out. I have used this company before, they were brilliant then and they continue to be so now. Truly professional."

Moving my furniture and belongings from storage in Suffolk to new home Cornwall.
 
Cost: £2000
 

"l, I found Christophers very helpful from start to finish. The lads were very good especially as I had a lot of small boxes to cut down weight to carry. They endured the rain at both ends (typically in the middle of a dry spell). Mine was just a return delivery on an otherwise empty lorry, which saved me some money. I would recommend them."

We relocated from up country to Cornwall. We moved from a 3 bed cottage to a 4 bed house.

"We were really impressed with Christophers. They were always really helpful on the phone throughout the booking process and were flexible providing us with several quotes to cover all potential outcomes and issues we had with move. On the moving day they arrived bright and early and were keen to get started. We had Barry and Tom the first move into storage. We then had Barry again and Aaron for the move into our house. All were very efficient and worked so incredibly hard! They were very professional and happy to advise on packing/dismantling larger items when we needed it. All of our belongings arrived at their final destination intact and they even ensured doors and staircases were covered to avoid any damage when moving larger items in/ out of the house. I would definitely recommend them to anyone moving house and my parents are hoping to book them for their upcoming move too!"

House to house move within the local area. Limited access at new house which was handled professionally and smoothly.

"Christophers were very flexible and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble, and the whole team with whom we came into contact were courteous, friendly and maintained their sense of humour throughout a long day!

We would certainly recommend them to others without reservation."
