Most items packed into boxes (about 35 boxes), a 5 foot cat tree, 2 bicycles, 4 van tyres, a big ironing board and a heavy double mattress. Moved from one bedroom ground floor flat to one bedroom ground floor flat.
 
Cost: £595
 

"The gentlemen ran slightly late, but called me way in advance to notify me, which was much appreciated. They were courteous and helpful throughout. They were very efficient, and packed my items securely in their van. I was injured and couldn't help lift anything but the gentlemen were very helpful. They even brought equipment in case i had clothes that needed to be hung up, even though this was not requested. Mattress was safely wrapped and transported with no damage. By the time I arrived at the new flat, most of the items were already neatly stacked in the house. They were considerate and made sure the boxes were easily accessible and tidy, which was a challenge given I had too much stuff for a small flat!
Melissa communicated promptly throughout the whole process, in terms of quotations, contracts, payments etc.
Very pleasant experience throughout, and I would definitely consider their services again when I move again in 6 months' time."
 
 
Team:
Melissa, unfortunately I cannot remember the names of the 2 gentlemen who assisted that day

Customer Review
 
I moved from England to a property in Scotland. It was made difficult by winter weather and also by COVID lockdown. I had a treadmill which refused to collapse down into an easier size and shape; a library worth of books and a gallery worth of pictures as well as all the usual paraphernalia.

"From the very beginning I knew I had picked the right company. They were kind, empathetic and extremely helpful. Everything was explained clearly and priced clearly so I would not be ambushed by anything. Due to the difficulties of tying in the English system with the Scottish system, my dates for moving kept changing right up to the last minute. The removal company didnít blink, simply changed with me and reassured me that they could manage my move as I needed it to be done.
All the packing materials arrived as explained, and I was walked through what to pack where and how to label everything to make it easier at the other end. The quantity of materials was perfect, I think I had 1 box over.
When the men arrived, they followed all the COVID regulations as explained, were polite, friendly and punctual. after a brief walk through so they could see what I had, they started. They worked so hard and efficiently. We were all packed up before the time they had suggested. The lorry was beautifully packed with everything well protected and stored. I felt very confident that everything was totally safe.
On arrival at the new property, they repeated in reverse, superb efficiency and friendliness. All done promptly and exactly as I could have dreamed. A really smooth operation. Nothing broken, very professional and caring. Really lovely people, I was totally happy."

700 miles move from Isle of Skye to Isle of Wight. Dismantling of 2 long case clocks and 3 others by me - carefully handled by removers and other furniture.
 
Cost: £6999

"Excellent crew, efficient and very helpful (I was sole packer of my home) Good contact and updates from office.

I've had no inspection of my delivered property to I.O.W as still in Skye property!! Thanks to professionals and purchasers. My friends on I.O.W. were very impressed with Billy - All seems to be fine and no obvious damage. Boxes not unpacked.

I was in good hands from end to end.

We were moving from Skye to Portlethen. I was hospitalized in the early hours of that morning. My husband was on crutches and needed a lot of help.
 

"By the time I was discharged from hospital, everything had been packed in to the van apart from a few garden pots.

My husband told me that the boys had gone beyond the call of duty to make sure everything was done as smooth as possible. We can't praise them enough. "

From Skye to Roxburghshire with unexpected need to go into short term store, which turned into five weeks.
 
Cost: £3900

"We were pleased-more than with every aspect of the process. We had more than enough stress to deal with but the company did their utmost to accomodate us and make things easier

In difficult circumstances on top of that, the team had to cope with heavy snow on the day we finally moved in they were brilliant."

Our move was a long distance over 500 miles but we could not have asked for a better team to get the job done stress free.

"From start to finish this was a rush job as my employer moved my job, Scottish Highlands Removal Services made it painless from price to completion, on the morning of they showed up early they got straight to work and where extremely professional. Given the climate we live in at the moment they mad our life very easy and adhered to guidelines within the pandemic rules.

Upon reaching our final destination they unloaded fast and went the extra mile getting stuff in the house in the right places and also aloud my 5 year old son to get involved which he loved.

Great experience and greet company would highly recommend."

Standard House removal from the Highlands Scotland to the North East of England.
 
Cost: £1999
 

"Professional from the start, clear precise instructions given by administrative staff, price of removal explained. Removal date arranged to suit myself and the removal company. My collection date for my removals had to be re-arranged by the removal company because of changes in their commitments but was re-arranged to suit mine as well.
The removal staff were excellent, polite , efficient, friendly and helpful on collection and also delivery to my new address"

Customer Review
 
The move went smoothly as far as I was concerned and the subsequent problems with the vehicle were dealt with by Melissa without any inconvenience to me. I was informed of the vehicle problem immediately by Melissa and I suspect a lot of hard work went on behind the scenes to sort the problem. I suspect the crew are not asked to transport different sizes of wood in all its forms all that often but the guys carried on with my requests without complaining. Phil and the other 2 guys were obliging and helpful at all times. Very impressed with the whole operation. Thank you to all of you, from Melissa and Clare at HQ to the guys on the van.
 
Cost: £2245
 

"I didn't get any other quotes as Scottish Removals were recommended to me and the quote was fair, as far as I was concerned, and also other people who had had the experience of moving house.
All along I was given the information I needed and queries were dealt with straight away. Melissa or Clare always contacted me straight away following a phone message and contact was also straight away regarding a change of date or any other questions.
Melissa and Clare were approachable and friendly and helpful from the word go.
I've been serving the public all my life and customer care has always been at the top of the list of priorities in running a business. It seems logical to me that everybody benefits from a friendly efficient service but unfortunately that isn't always case. In this case it certainly is!"

House move including musical instruments and lots of garden items, plants and furniture.
 
Cost: £995
 

"Everything went very smoothly from start to finish. The initial quote came in promptly and the office staff were able to answer any queries and worked to my specifications.
On the day of the removal, the two men were polite, friendly and professional. Nothing was too much bother for them and they completed the job without any issues.
The items were delivered in excellent condition with no damages - In particular, they took great care of my harp.
They were both very calm and I felt that nothing was an issue to them."

"Our sale and purchase had been made a nightmare by various people but thankfully this removal company couldn`t have been better, and Melissa and her team were extremely accomadating. Our move was not confirmed until 2 days before we moved but we were never pressured. Billy and Lewis were very professional, and we couldn`t have asked for more."

Moved from west of Scotland to the east.

"From our first point of contact to completion of our move, Scottish Removals were efficient and professional.
Melissa and Claire were very helpful and considerate, when giving advice on number of boxes etc.
Billy, Ali and Lewis were so respectful to our home and belongings. They made it look so easy, worked extremely hard, easing the pressure of a very stressful day!
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Scottish Removals, they are an excellent company to deal with."

Moving household items from London into storage and then delivery to the Highlands.

"This was a move negotiated during an incredibly difficult time, ie. during Covid-19 lockdown. This required constant communication regarding appropriate timing for removal, length of storage and delivery. Melissa and her colleagues were all so professional at every stage but also reassuring and kind, which helped us enormously, given the complexities. They always did exactly as they said they would and everything ran like clockwork. It was a pleasure to work with them and we heartily recommend their services."

Over the past 5 years, we have had one major house move and 3 trips of furniture out and in of storage.

" Melissa and her team have always been professional, courteous and efficient. Melissa and Claire are always supportive especially in very stressful circumstances. We cannot praise Melissa and her team enough. Over the last 5 years we have used their services for major house removal and for storage of furniture for a rental property.We have had some very stressful situations arise and throughout Melissa, Claire and the team have been exceptional. They are hardworking and genuinely nice people. We have no hesitation in recommending them to other people."
