Move from Scotland to England with one month''s storage.
 
Cost: £1800
 

"Clockwork Glasgow - A Nightmare!
My move with Clockwork was a painful, frustrating and distressing experience.
Although theirs were the most expensive (by far) of three quotations, I chose Clockwork as I'd had an excellent experience with their predecessors, Gerards, on a previous move. Confidence was further inspired by their representative calling out to see what was involved.
My move involved three stages: 1. initial emptying of my previous house 2. storage 3. final removal to my new house.
Stage 1: This went well although I was rather taken aback by the condition of the portable 'wardrobes' which were grubby, had clearly been previously used well beyond their lifespan and were in a state of near collapse.
Stage 2: When I was finally given an entry date for my new property (a new-build), I had to wait several weeks later for Clockwork to fit me into their busy schedule before they could deliver my contents from their storage (resulting in more temporary rental).
Stage 3: Shambolic from start to finish.
• my contents mixed up with those of another customer(s)
• carefully packed boxes clearly marked 'fragile' squashed and bent (contents correspondingly damaged)
• heavy items loaded on top of weaker items which would obviously be damaged (and were)
• polished surfaces of furniture scored, scraped and damaged (boxes carelessly slid across their unprotected surfaces)
• items broken and/or damaged beyond repair during unloading
• several items 'lost', one of which was a dishwasher . (I had to threaten to report it as stolen to the police to get it back. On its subsequent delivery to me, the sticky label which I had firmly affixed to show its destination had mysteriously been removed and, worse, the side casing to the dishwasher had been seriously damaged, whether accidental or, some cynics might suggest, deliberate I have no way of knowing but it was a major bash.)
On taking these matters up with them, I encountered the expected "oh, but have you read the terms and conditions", "take it up with your insurance company", etc, etc without any comment about their reckless negligence.
Overall, an excruciating experience which only now, after several months of battle, has been very unsatisfactorily finalised.
Frankly, I'd have been better entrusting my belongings to a gang of juvenile delinquents.
"
 
 
 
   Business Reply:

We do apologise for your bad experience. During our busy times we are carrying out thousands of removals so we cannot always fit in moves at short notice.

Again we are very sorry for not meeting your expectations.

Kind regards,

My move was from a Flat (1-up) to a house. A few items proved to be testing for the removal team due to screw heads crumbling when dismantling the dining table for example, but the guys were professional throughout.
 
Cost: £500
 

"I couldn't recommend Clockwork Removals enough. We moved house on 22nd of December (stressful enough) and my wife was 7mths pregnant. The Clockwork Removals guys really kept the hassles of moving house to an absolute minimum. Hat's off to them!"

A 2 bedrooms appartment from Aberdeen to Harrow.

"There were two packers on the day of the move but they were not working to the same high standards.
One was very efficient and professional but the other one was not so much."

3 bedroom flat 2 floors up
 
Cost: £1300
 

"very professional, clean tidy, efficient. this is the first time I have used Clockwork and I was very very impressed by the service. I had a full pack and it made life very easy on the day.

Improvements - minor issue, to finish one room so that I could start cleaning. I appreciate that the men have a system to work with but if they could have moved some items into one room to allow cleaning this would really have helped. Excluding that I was very impressed."

Moving from Glasgow to Berkshire.
 
Cost: £876
 

"The guys who did the collection and delivery were very friendly and professional.

They took note of damage they caused and advised that we would hear back from the Glasgow office but we never did - which was disappointing.

This is the first time, I have used Clockwork - their price is very competitive.

The collection was punctual.

Delivery was very late due to traffic problems en-route. I did get a couple of calls during the day to update on progress - which was good.
"
 
 
 
   Business Reply:

I have now spoken to [the customer] and apologised for not getting back to her sooner, but the notes on the paperwork were not seen. This delivery was a part-load service and as such times can often shift, that being said we kept in contact with customer throughout the day to update on estimated time of arrival and the load was delivered on the day arranged.

pack up contents from 4 bed victorian semi into storage and then 6wks later deliver items to large modern loft/duplex. Lots of unwanted items as did not suit new property which were taken care of and recycled within council system.
 
Cost: £2000
 

"All done in a totally professional, swift manner making the whole experience stress free! Amazing team of workers, nothing was a problem.

First time using clockwork. Have already recommended them to work colleague. Totally professional and reliable team of people from the lady in the office who answered all our queries to the chaps who do the hard delivery work."

We were downsizing after 36 years in our family home, which we expected to be an emotional and stressful experience. However it all went "like clockwork"
 
Cost: £880
 

"Although we were not told specifically about details re. insurance claims etc, we were given to BAR code of practice booklet, and the contract gave us all the information we thought we needed.

We were delighted with the service and would use this firm again."

Domestic house with a piano

"This was our first experience using Clockwork and I must say it was the best stress free move I have ever had. We were allocated 2 lovely gentleman the day before we moved to start the packing and you would have never known you had them in the house fantastic. On the day of the move our sons were able to relax and watch tv until the very final moment we moved out the house. They packed the van and waited at the other end with great patience until we had key release wonderful. I will recommend this company to all my friends and family."
