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: 98%
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: 98%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 90%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 97%
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: 88%
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.

Moved from a storage unit near Falmouth Cornwall, to Devon
 
Cost: £1300
 

"We had had a rather traumatic time actually purchasing our property, with the first one falling through and a very long wait before we could actually book for removing our furniture etc. M.J. Christophers were as accommodating as you coUtd wish for over this very stressful period , and when the move actually happened the three guys who looked after us and our possessions were exceptional and a great laugh, that again lifted our spirits when we were feeling rather jaded."

A move of home from a village to a town, 5 miles apart.
 
Cost: £1200
 

"Our completion date was changed and so we only had a week's notice to arrange the move from exchange of contracts. Christophers took the stress out of the move completely, their team arrived the day before to pack and went about it quietly and efficiently. When your mind is racing with everything to do it is a massive bonus to have a team in your home who are so professional and trustworthy.

Arriving at the new house was smooth, the move in seemed to take no time and again was done quietly and efficiently - no fuss, they just got on a did it.

We do not underestimate the importance of their professionalism to making our move a good one. It is a vulnerable feeling to have your whole life in a couple of vans but we fully trusted Christophers team and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

"Christophers were polite, professional and pleasant despite challenges described above move went smoothly and quickly packing and unloading expertly done. "

Moving furniture, beds, boxes of belongings from my first floor flat to my two story house about 18 miles away.
 
Cost: £1020
 

"The survey visit was smooth. He accurately understood what I needed and was clear in describing the policies and all of that. The quotation was prepared and sent to me in a very reasonable time period.

The pre-move communication was great - very responsive to any questions, helpful and friendly.

The team of three people and two smaller trucks were friendly and punctual on arrival. They prepared the area with protective coverings, eyed up the items to be moved and how to do that and then got on doing it. They worked wonderfully together as a team and did not complain at all about the stairs in my apartment building or the steep drive at the other end. Beds were dismantled, moved and reassembled in the desired rooms. All furniture and boxes were put in the rooms I wanted them in. They worked quietly and steadily which meant they completed the move in one day. A great service and great value.

I highly recommend them."
 
 
Team:
All the removal team were great.

Soldon Close Padstow

"We used MJ Christopher's on the recommendation of friends and were very happy with the whole experience of them handling our move. When we experienced delays in moving into our new property, they were helpful, professional and extremely obliging from start to finish-nothing was too much trouble. We were very impressed and so grateful for their calm and efficient service from the initial packing to the return of our worldly goods. Thank you very much!"

We have done 3 house moves in the last 12 months with Christopher''s. Our house contents were put in storage for 5 months, then moved to a rented apartment up 39 stairs, for 8 months, before being moved into our newly built home.

"We would wholly recommend this Removal Company who were efficient, polite, respectful and careful of our belongings whilst moving them in and out of our property. The last 2 moves involved moving all our furniture to and then 8 months later from, an apartment in the roof space of a large building up 39 granite stairs, which they managed cheerfully and without complaining.
Their quote was very reasonable and we felt was very good value for the excellent service we received. They even watered our garden plants whilst in storage with them for almost 5 months."

The move was from Cornwall to North Derbyshire, loading Tuesday,driving up Wednesday and unloading Thursday. Access at the property we moved from was easy but due to narrow roads here everything had to be unloaded onto a smaller van. The property we moved into was older with narrow doorways and it was difficult to get some furniture into various rooms and up the stairs.

"The quotation process was careful and considered,giving confidence that preparations and the removal itself would be carried out to a high standard. The office staff were polite and helpful. The removal men were outstanding, they were careful,helpful and worked really hard even when difficult access made working conditions hard.
The only aspect of the move I was not happy with was the large amount of cardboard boxes and other packing material that I had to take to recycling and landfill because I could not return them to the firm that moved us.I suggest that the firm makes some arrangements with a firm here so that boxes and some packaging can be re used. When we enquired about this we were told the name of the firm on the boxes was the problem,perhaps some plain boxes could be available for long distance removals."

Partly pack and move from farmhouse to location eight miles away. Many awkward pieces of furniture and tricky staircases. All dealt with with a minimum of fuss.
 
Cost: £1300
 

"A visit followed by a quote was quickly obtained. The quote was accepted by us and agreement to pay in full one week before the move.
Plenty of packing aids were given to pack as much as we could, the removal men did the rest over two days of packing and transporting to new site.
The workmen were efficient, polite and flexible, they did a great job."

From terraced house to converted chapel.
Steep stairs in the chapel with a sharp turn at the top.
 

"As a window moving home is daunting Mr Christopher was professional and reassuring when he came to assess and quote for the move. The office staff were patient and helpful, even when I made changes and the move was questionable until 4.30 the day before!
The men who come to pack and do the move were excellent. Everything was well packed and traveled safely. They were quick, efficient and very ameiable. Everything went as planned I cannot recommend you highly enough and I have made many moves your quote was reasonable and nearly £1,000"

Removal from Plymouth to storage in Christopherís premises in Newquay. After three weeks in storage, uplifted and transported to The Wirral.

"From start to finish of the removal and storage I was kept informed, dates were discussed and everything was made crystal clear. Correspondence was clear and most informative. The men undertaking the packing were friendly, courteous and helpful. It was a long tiring job but they were always cheerful and kind. The packaging was meticulous!
The long transport to The Wirral, some 600+ miles arrived at 8.10 am and was ultra awkward as there were 3 flights of stairs to negotiate ... some 60 odd heavy boxes to be carried individually. It was quite obvious that this was an exhausting job but again the men were patient, polite and friendly.
This was my second experience of using C.J Christophers and I was delighted and impressed both times."
