This is the 4th time (I think) we’ve used this company. We were moving furniture from London to Edinburgh. We had some fragile items in the load. Due to lockdown the move was complex.

"Simon and the team made everything run smoothly as always. We couldn’t be on Edinburgh when the furniture was delivered due to lockdown so a friend assisted and all items were placed exactly as requested. The Blackhall moving & storage company is a family business with family values. So hard working and so human. We cannot recommend this company enough and will only ever use them as and when necessary. Thank you all again so very much. Mark & Linda x x"

Moved within Edinburgh from a 2 bed ground floor flat to a 3 bed first floor house.
 
Cost: £708
 

"From initial quote to completion of move experience was excellent. Packaging materials delivered promptly in advance, removal van arrived punctually on the day and team worked swiftly but carefully to load up and deliver to new home. No damage to any of our items. Communication with office was excellent throughout."
 
 
Team:
Vicki in the office, Simon providing estimate, Daniel and Wayne on the day, plus the reinforcements who joined them at the end to help complete the job - all very efficient and friendly.

Move of all large items from Edinburgh double upper to Borders house.
 
Cost: £846
 

"The whole moving experience with Blackhall was great: the estimator came out at short notice and at a time of our convenience, the moving team turned up on time and got our large items (beds, sideboards, dining suite, sofas, white goods) loaded quickly but carefully. They took time to manoeuvre their truck down our narrow access lane and had all the items into the correct rooms in a very short time. Friendly, helpful and efficient."

Moving from a 4 bed home to a rental with 3 young children. We used the full packing service and removal.
 
Cost: £1100
 

"Blackhall removals were fantastic, I would highly recommend. The staff were so helpful, polite and considerate of the stresses that come with moving house with 3 young children. The van was immaculate along with all the covers used. We have moved 3 times in Edinburgh in the last 10 years and I will be using Blackhall again for the next move."

Customer Review
 
I used Blackhall Moving & Storage for both the moving and storage services, as I had several weeks between the sale and purchase dates of my properties.

"The service provided by Blackhall Moving & Storage was excellent from start to finish. Vicky was very informative and responded very quickly to any queries during the process.

I required both moving and storage services. On both moving days the 'boys' were very punctual and incredibly efficient - I was surprised by how quickly they worked. Their team work in how to move large heavy items, especially from a top floor flat, was impressive.
Chris, Stevie and the lads were all very personable and you knew your 'stuff was in safe hands.

The prices were competitive and I feel I got good value for money.

Overall they were an aspect of the whoke moving house experience that was completely stress free. I would highly recommend Blackhall Moving & Storage."

Customer Review
 
Third floor tenement apartment to four bedroom house. Included disassembly of all furniture, clearance of the wardrobes and a ''breakable'' packing service.
 
Cost: £1200
 

"The contact with the administrative team was superb from the start; they were responsive, detailed and clear.

The quote was very reasonable.

They provided boxes for packing well ahead of time.

Blackhall had a job delayed the day prior to our move, so come round 1 day early to pack up most of the apartment.

They were presentable, professional and hard working. We had no concerns throughout the entire move about the safety of our possessions.

The team worked quickly and efficiently. They took away the used boxes the same day and are returning to take the remainder shortly.

Overall, Blackhall are an excellent removals company and we would happily recommend them to friends and family."

I moved out a first floor 2 bed flat on a Thursday and into a ground floor larger 2 bed home late on the Friday about 1.2 miles away and included overnight storage. Also included was the disassembling of a large ottoman bed, and a glass dining table. And moving several pieces of heavy oak furniture.
 
Cost: £876
 

"From the initial quote and planning of the move, through 2 changes in plan, instigated by me as my plans evolved and firmed up, to the 2 days of moving I could not be happier with the service from Blackhall Moving & Storage.

Vicki called in advance to confirm timings and the team arrived on time and got straight to work. Nothing was too heavy or problematic, and there was a walk through To check nothing was missed before they left with my belongings in storage. On my move in, again, despite the delay in obtaining keys, the team was on site in minutes and nothing was too much trouble. Checking to ensure I was happy with furniture placement before they left.

Moving is always stressful, however, Simon and the team kept me chuckling at their jokes and teasing one another to alleviate the stress, and with their patience and flexibility I had no concerns at all on their side of things.

I would absolutely recommend them to anyone moving, the price was fair and their willingness to remain flexible for me from the outset made it worth every penny in my opinion."

Moving all our furniture.

"The office staff were very efficient in supplying the quotation, and then kept us informed at every step of the way in the run up to the removal.
The removal team were very punctual in arriving on the day of removal, and carried out their duties in a very organised and efficient manner.
The team leader was very polite and helpful.
There were very good at ensuring that our furniture was well cared for and protected during the removal.
We were very impressed with the whole service we received."

This company is worth its weight in gold. I couldn''t praise them enough. So very professional from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble. As we had 2 houses to empty on the one day, they let us empty the first on the day before, and stored everything safely overnight until we were ready to empty the second house. Well done, and thank you so much.

Our move was from a large family home on three levels to a 3 bed flat. We had to move several extremely heavy pieces of furniture which required four men to manhandle as well as dismantle and reassemble. There was ten days between the move out and the move in So all items were put into crates and storage for the interim period.
 
Cost: £2500
 

"All members of the team were extremely helpful, obliging and reassuring to deal with.
Nothing was any trouble and at all times I felt confident that everything was in good hands. I cannot fault anything about the entire move.

Due to another client not being ready for their move the team asked if they could start the move the afternoon before they were due to arrive. I actually found this very useful as they cleared out around half of the move and returned the following day for the rest. I would actually suggest this is a good way of arranging any large move as logistically it is easier.

When packing I marked boxes with brightly coloured tape to denote particular rooms or boxes to be opened later - this was a great bonus and made things much easier for both the packers and myself."

Our move was from a flat in Edinburgh to a flat in North Yorkshire . The move was a stop start affair due to the pandemic lockdown which resulted in part of our furniture going into storage for the duration. We were kept informed at all times by Blackhall Moving & Storage and everything was done very efficiently.

"I can't recommend Blackhalls enough the move was interrupted by the lockdown but we were kept fully informed by both Simon and Vicky.

The removal team were very helpful with advice on how to pack certain items and what need emptying and what could be left for them to move.

Blackhalls supplied us with plenty of cartons and bubble wrap free of charge as part of the service.

The team really looked after our furniture with the result that there was absolutely no marks or damage to any of it.

We choose Blackhall's because they are a family run company and they were also recommended by a friend.

A neighbour at our Edinburgh flat even commented that they were the most efficient at removals and loading the van that he had seen.
He should know his flat is close to the car park were all the removal vans park.

I would definitely recommend this company.

From the first contact when requesting the quote and the following discussions over phone and email - the entire process was perfectly smooth. I am a student moving between Edinburgh and London, with a part load from 1st flat in Edinburgh EH9 to 5th floor flat in London SW1, with about 15 boxes and 3 wardrobe boxes.
 
Cost: £348
 

"Vicki and the team have been incredibly helpful with my part load move from Edinburgh to London. The guys picking my boxes were so energetic and welcoming, and this friendly approach has taken so much stress out of the move, which went as smoothly as one would expect. I was genuinely happy to see the BlackHall guys in my new place in London, bringing a piece of Scotland with them. The booking process is transparent and straightforward with clear terms and conditions. I can only recommend the firm to all my friends."

We moved from one side of Edinburgh to the other. From a small bungalow to a two floor house. We managed all our furniture, garden furniture,bike and lots of large potted plants in one large van.
 
Cost: £800
 

"The whole team were fantastic. We sold and bought our house just before lockdown so all of our original dates went out the window. It was a very stressful time. Vickie was amazing reorganising dates several times. We were giving boxes, a roll of bubble wrap and tape free before the move.

The actual move went so smoothly. It only took a couple of hours to load the van and about an hour to unload at the other end. Nothing was to much trouble.

I would not hesitate to recommend Blackhall removal! Amazing."

We moved our belongings out of storage into our new second floor flat in the centre of Edinburgh.
 
Cost: £900
 

"The whole process was very smooth. Vicki was very efficient in the office and Simon and his team very friendly and never complained about the two flights of stairs. Because of COVID 19 Edinburgh Council was not allowing parking bays to be suspended so Blackhall very helpfully put out their own traffic cones two days before which worked a treat."
