We moved to a 3rd floor flat and could not have done it without the team.

"They were so efficient and made everything super smooth.
They had no issues moving all of our furniture including our exercise bike and ensured everything was well looked after throughout.

The whole Kerrís team were fantastic throughout the whole process of our move. From arranging a quote, the move itself and picking up our boxes everything was done in an efficient and friendly manner.

Nothing was too much bother for the team and they ensured that our moving day went smoothly. The team went the extra mile and dismantled / reassembled both our bed and our wardrobe on the day of the move which removed a lot of the hassle for us.

House move from Bristol to Edinburgh, several months storage in between houses. They also arranged the removal of our piano.

"We used Kerrís for a move from Bristol to Edinburgh (and for a few months storage in between houses). They were absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Great communication, lovely guys, efficient packing and loading and just generally made the process so much more stress-free. Thank you!"

Moving from a 2 bedroom Victorian house in a busy district of Edinburgh,50 miles away to a modern 3 bedroom house in a more rural community was going to be a challenge for me, especially as it followed the death of my husband.

"From the beginning of our contract when Mr Kerr the firmís founder, came to estimate, to his grandson William leading the team on moving day, the experience was actually a good one.
They packed, boxed and loaded very cheerfully, were waiting at the destination before we arrived, unloaded and put the goods and furniture where I wanted. They also happily moved items when I changed my mind and offered sound advice.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Kerrís to anyone planning to move house."

Moving from 4th floor flat in centre of town to the suburbs, 3 piece suit, 2 beds, marble table, huge 70s style bedroom unit, 40 + boxes

"Guys were brilliant. Everything handled with care, very quick, excellent service. From the start of the process (getting quote), to the removal, everything was faultless. Really took out the stress of moving, very calm approach which is reassuring in such a stressful time. Everyone was so nice, five star customer service. They even arranged my parking suspension. Thank you to everyone at Kerrís - couldnít have went any smoother, will be my first choice and will recommend to anyone I know moving!"

Customer Review
 
We used Kerr''s of Edinburgh for our move out of a rented flat in Edinburgh to a house in St Albans. The move was straightforward but our flat was on the second floor and some items were too big and had to be carried down the stairs. In addition, a large and heavy table top (which had been lost by another more famous moving company) turned up at the last minute and Kerr''s were pleased to help take it down and install it with no fuss or extra charge.

"I had intended to use a larger, international moving company whom I had used before, but their quote was too high. Kerr's were significantly cheaper and so I decided to go with someone new but was concerned about quality.

However I am happy to report that everything about the experience from the first phonecall to final delivery and afterwards was excellent. I could not recommend Billy and his family more highly - their enthusiasm for the work and level of service was outstanding.

Billy Kerr visited our flat and was experienced enough to estimate volumes and packing times accurately (so we were always on or a little ahead of schedule). Contracting and payment was easy with their on-line systems. Insurance was discussed and we worked out a way to exclude high value items to keep it competitive. Boxes were delivered ahead of time. Jeff arrived a day ahead to help us with packing and got through a mountain of work the day before our move. There were no breakages. William Kerr and his team handled the move out and move in efficiently. They worked really hard, solved some tricky lifting problems - as well as being polite, cheerful and generally pleasant to work with.

As mentioned above, they were willing to accept a large item at the last minute that had been missed from an earlier move by another company. During the move in, they helped me with rearranging some furniture which was too heavy for me alone. At the end of the move they took away all the packing materials (and then searched through them all for items I had thought were missing but actually weren't).

I rarely write reviews but I am pleased to recommend Kerr's of Edinburgh as an excellent moving company."

Moved from first floor flat to new build house including several large items of furniture.

"We were extremely impressed with the professionalism and efficiency with which Kerr's packed and moved our possessions. The move went very smoothly with minimum stress thanks to all of the help they provided.

From disassembling and reassembling our furniture to laying down protection to stop our new place getting dirty, we felt confident our move was in good hands. We will be recommending Kerr's to everyone we know!"

Move from Edinburgh to Hertfordshire. Four lapsed days. Paintings needed wrapping and protected

"The removal process was smooth from start to finish. We took on Kerrs as a last minute replacement for a local firm that could not fulfil their promise.

The calmness and speed of response was faultless.

The team of estimator, packer and removals team were excellent.

Help with wrapping stored furniture and putting heavy mirror on the wall was of particular value to us.

Thank you Kerrs"

The move was a fairly routine house move, not too much furniture but 77 boxes of household goods. We moved some 20 miles. The packing was done on 1 day and the move completed on the following day.

"From start to finish, Kerrs were first class. They offered a price that was much more competitive than others; the person who came to assess the job was polite, informed and professional. The packer worked hard all day to pack everything that was being moved. The 3 young men who came to effect the removal were hard-working, polite, friendly towards us and each other, and helpful beyond what we might have expected. For a very stressful experience in life, Kerrs made it as easy as it could be."

Moving from a 3 floors terraced house to a 2 floors detached house

"Kerr's was the most expensive quote that we had received from three reputable removing companies in Edinburgh. We employed them because of their availability as we only had a few days to prepare for our moving out of the old house. Their services were very good and their staff were polite. It would be perfect if the price was a little bit cheaper."

Move within Edinburgh, with restrictions on parking. Packing service for breakables. Move took place over two days.

"I would highly recommend Kerrís of Edinburgh. From the first enquiry to the final stage of collecting the packing materials after the move was complete, every member of the team could not have been more helpful. Everything happened as planned, undertaken with professionalism, exceptional customer care, and good humour throughout - even when dealing with heavy furniture!"

Whole house move.

"We moved from South Africa to Luxembourg and from Luxembourg to Edinburgh. None of these moves was as pleasant as the service Kerr gave us. There staff was not only polite but always had a smile on their face. There were days when I thought this load could be a bit of challenge for them and if it was they didnít show it. This is service of the highest calibre. Thank you Kerr."

A move from rural Lanarkshire to Edinburgh.

"I can unreservedly recommend Kerrís Edinburgh. Our sale progressed really quickly and I contacted them on the recommendation of my son who had also used them, thinking I was probably short of time to plan. They could not have been more helpful. Because we lived a bit away they did a video walkthrough of my house with me to allow me to show them the job. Quickly following that they provided me with the quote for packing and removal. I felt the price was very good and did not hesitate to accept the quote.
Following acceptance and before any payment I was provided with all relevant information. We were also offered storage space at their depot, we didnít require this but it was also very reasonably priced had we needed it.
We then informed them of our moving date and they discussed with us a detailed moving plan. What I loved was it was all arranged to happen over a few days, this relieved the stress of fully packing vans etc on actual moving day.
Two days before move day our packer arrived. He was amazing, carefully packing all of our prized possessions with care. There was a lot to do but he stayed positive and cheery throughout.
Day before moving day they came en masse to finish packing and fill the van.
We chose to stay in a hotel that night, but they would have left our bed until the next day if we wanted, we just chose to be completely done the day before. The young man who led the packing team was another outstanding young man. So polite, helpful and positive. We were having a couple of last minute issues with finalising the sale and purchase and he was so reassuring, he really helped put us at ease.
So all packed and onto moving day. We were just told to phone when we had the keys. We did so and they arrived within the hour and then started an efficient unload. Asking us to stand and Ďbossí them directing where things should go. Again carried out quickly and efficiently with good humour. Even moving the occasional item when we got things wrong without question. Including the rebuilding of our beds.
We were left all the boxes to unpack at our leisure and they collected them once we let them know they were ready.
All items were undamaged and in perfect condition.
From start to finish it was 5 star service."

I moved from a third floor tenement flat to a ground floor one.

"The team arrived on time, carried boxes and furniture down cheerily and speedily, very efficient.
Also dismantled and then re-built my bed, which I usually find a challenge, they did it no problem.
A great service, I would recommend to anybody."

It was a complicated move with the contents of the house being sold with half the contents going into storage, and half going to a new property. The storage contents went to an other property 4 months later, with a few items being dropped off at one of our children''s home on route. The original sale fell through and then was activated again 3 months later, with Kerr''s commitment to ensure the move would go smoothly when it happened.

"We have moved many times before, this was the 10th time and by far the most complicated. Kerr's were outstanding and by far the best removal company we have used. Nothing seemed to cause a problem, and they were calm and clear in handling all our needs. All the staff we encountered were polite , friendly and professional. The removal men were extremely hard working and nothing was too much trouble, they very much worked and acted as a team.
Everything was well packed and labelled, and we had no damages or breakage.

We would have no reservations in recommending Kerr's to our family and friends."

Rermoval from London to Edinburgh

"Kerr's did our removal from London to Edinburgh in September 2022 - most of our stuff then went intyo storage until we found a permanent home in December. They were perfect from start to finish - estimating, planning, the packing up in London, the final move into our new house in Ediburgh. Really professional and also very nice people to deal with. I unconditionally recommend them."
