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: 95%
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: 95%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 88%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 95%
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: 91%
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.

4 bedroom house to the same size.
 
Cost: £1100
 

"We had a 4 bedroom house that needed to be moved and I can't be more grateful to these guys! They set up all of our furniture which was a god send, they did literally everything I felt like a spare part! They started at half 8/9 and didn't finish until gone 7pm. They made sure that we were moved properly before they left."

We contacted Hilderbrands as an emergency as we had been let down by our removal firm on the day of moving. They were brilliant , got a team together & managed to pack the house up in the required time. The following day they travelled up north to our new location & moved all our furniture in without a hitch.

"I wish we had booked them from the start. Excellent , professional service from our first call until completion . Thank you so much & I would have no hesitation in recommending them as a first class removal service."

Customer Review
 
We moved from a 6 bedroom country house with land, into a cottage with outbuildings in a village about 10 miles away. In particular we were transferring garden machinery, statuary, the contents of workshops and stables and 22 years worth of raising a family and collecting too much stuff.

"I can not recommend Hilderbrands highly enough. What was a massive project, was made manageable and as stress free as possible. Indeed, any stressful part was taken on board by the Hilderbrands team, and nothing seemed to be impossible. The packing was carefully planned over a number of weeks to minimalise inconvenience as much as possible, and the team were good natured, cheerful and willing throughout. The manipulation of heavy things such as the piano appeared to be effortless and everything was safely installed in our new home with no damage at all. Thank you to all the team. You were brilliant."

Karol and Merlin were the two always present and I am sorry I don t remember the names of the other 4-5 who came at other times.

The move was from Ash in Kent to Wiltshire and occurred on the wettest weekend of the year.

"We were very pleased with all aspects of the move. Considering the weather difficulties, traffic problems on the day and other problems encountered, the removal boys remained always upbeat, polite and positive."

The move went very smoothly indeed.

"The office were very helpful and efficient when I phoned for availability of the company. Paperwork was issued quickly and any queries dealt with equally as efficiently.
The van arrived at the stated time on the stated date.
The crew were friendly, polite, efficient and even went further than expected by helping remove a dirty carpet and dismantle unexpected left furniture left by the last property owners in the new abode.

For the 4th time we have used Hilderbrands and yet again it was an amazing service, they packed and moved everything, they were friendly, courteous and professional throughout
 
Cost: £3000
 

"From the very first time we used Hilderbrands, they have been nothing but a delight to deal with, Pat normally does the first visit, very professional, makes a note of everything that is being moved and packed, from the contents of the fridge to hanging clothes from the wardrobe. The removal teams are polite, professional, punctual and considerate with your belongings, everything gets wrapped and protected, it is a fantastic service. Karol, Ben & Darek were our team on our last move and they were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble i can't speak highly enough of them all."

We moved with a lot of furniture and boxes (over 140) from a village near Faversham into a house in Herne Bay.
 
Cost: £2800
 

"Really excellent help from everyone we met from Hilderbrands - a move that required packing and unpacking over three days in total. Nothing was too challenging for the team. Would not hesitate to recommend or use again."

Customer Review
 
My home contents were moved with large furniture dismantled and packed safely. My belongings were placed in storage before my new home was ready. My property was then delivered with all the furniture reassembled and placed where I needed them to be. Excellent service all round
 
Cost: £1900
 

"I was recommended to use Hilderbrands and arranged for an estimate. The man who came out to see me was friendly, helpful, honest and straightforward and because of him I decided to use this service. Hilderbrands quote included removal of home contents and take to storage. The movers were excellent, helpful, careful and unfailing cheerful and efficient, they worked hard with very little time taken in breaks. When my new home completed the same movers (that was important to me) came with all my property unloaded in exactly the same cheerful, hardworking manner, and reassembled all my property. They also checked at the end that everything was placed where I wanted. They will willing to move things until I was happy. They are employees to be proud of. Having completed unpacking my boxes there was no damage, no breakages and no scratches on anything. There quote was competitive and their service and second to none. Highly recommended"

Just a straightforward move across town but we have lots of stuff including lots of fragile items.

"What was agreed when we were given our quote is exactly what happened. The price didn't change. Everything was done in exactly the manner stipulated. The team were excellent - really cheerful and polite throughout. Very hardworking. They knew their business and just got on with it in a way that really inspired confidence. I'm sure we could have paid less to move house but don't regret the cost given the service we received - it really helped to alleviate any stress in the move."

Move from Kent to Norfolk
 
Cost: £3000
 

"From the first contact with Penny in the office and thereafter the quotation visit from Pat, Hilderbands removals came across as a profesional and customer focused business, this is the main reason we decided to engage Hiderbrands even though they were not the cheapest quote we recieved. Our move took place over 3 days with two very well maintained and presented trucks assigned, two removal guys turned up, profesionaly dressed and very polite and lots of positive smiles, nothing was too much trouble from the start through to the end of the move. Pete and James were fantastic packing our belongings and and then joined by Jim unloading the other end, fast efficent and happy guys, who helped reduce the the stress of moving and ensured our move was as smooth as posible. Undoutably the best moving company we have ever used and therefor highly"

Moving a piano from a first floor to another first floor property with no lift. Disassembling and reassembling some flat pack furniture. Plus all the usual removals.
 
Cost: £1160
 

"The guys were absolutely amazing. I sat working until they needed to take the chair I was sitting in! At the other end, all was just as smooth. Not having to reassemble flat packs made it feel like home so much more quickly and easily. I would completely recommend Hildebrands."
