Moving out of my late step mothers property
 
Cost: £370
 

"As soon as I made the first phone call and I heard Melissa’s voice I felt an enormous sense of relief ~ these guys had it all in hand!!! Nothing was too much trouble.

The removal men themselves were so helpful, kind & considerate, they made what should have been a very difficult & stressful time almost effortless!!

I am soooooooo glad I made that phone call to ask for help in moving the last of my step mothers things 🙂

Totally and utterly recommend this removals company

Thank you everyone!!! ✨🙏🏻✨"

Involved moving haemodialysis equipment from hospital setting to a patients home. Equipment was delivered to an upstairs bedroom.
 
Cost: £750
 

"I have been unable to respond to some of the points relating to Code of Practice, as a colleague delt with these aspects. However, I do know that my colleague is very happy with the work carried out.

I have found this removal company very easy to deal with. The coordinator has been extremely helpful. The equipment was transported and handled cometently and with great care. This service has offered excellent value for money.

We will definately look to use this company for any similar moves in the future."

Moving back to the Outer Hebrides!!! Great to have a company that understands the complexities of booking ferries, standby slots and lashing points!!

"The company was recommended by a family member . I have to agree couldn’t rate them high enough from initial online form to the closure of the lorry doors as they left us in our new home .
The extra help was more than appreciated as white goods were dropped off as well as other items at at another of my family’s home on route, after a cheeky request from myself.
The whole team from start to finish are professional , friendly and also with their fun attitude made moving virtually stress free!!!
Plus they are well used to the joys of island living with weather and ferries."

Customer Review
 
I moved from a two bedroom bungalow in the central belt of Scotland to a three bedroom bungalow on the Isle of South Uist.

"Having moved house a couple of times in the last few years this was by far the least stressful move (though the furthest) as the removal company were so fantastic. Melissa and Claire were really friendly and helpful and communicated about everything throughout, as well as reassuring me when I was a bit worried I had more things than I realised. The packing team labelled all the boxes which made it much easier to find things at the other end and for the first time in any house move not a single thing has broken as it was so well packaged. Everyone was brilliant and really friendly. There was also no problem with transporting my electric wheelchair and in my new home everything was placed so that I could still get round really easily in my wheelchair too. Although I don’t plan to move house again, if I did I would without any hesitation use this company."

Relocation of existing community hospital equipment from old building to new.
 
Cost: £6995
 

"The experience was great with Claire and Melissa. Couldn't have been more helpful in sending over quotes and making sure our needs were met in preparation for the move. The team were very mindful about working with NHS and active hospital buildings. Communicated well throughout.

Once the moves had started, again the whole team were very helpful and adaptable. All the removals team were mannerly and nothing was damaged, with care taken on all items of equipment especially high value items.

Would definitely use again and recommend to anyone."

A long distance, stress-free, move from Fife to Kyle. We have fragile and large heavy objects.
 
Cost: £1800
 

"All items were moved without any damage. They even dismantled a king size bed and then reassembled it at the other end with no extra charge. They even took all my boxes and packing material back a week later to help future moves, so nothing went into landfill.

The guys were very friendly and the cost was very competitive. I will use them again for any small or large moving jobs.

I highly recommend this company."

We moved during some of the wildest weather of the year. But Billy and Lewis were exemplary in their commitment and hard work, making our move so less of a burden.

"Moving from Mid Calder, West Lothian, to Kilmuir, Isle of Skye, may have appeared a daunting prospect, but the team were so efficient and helpful: from Melissa in Broadford to Billy and Lewis doing the actual removal, all went well from initial contact to completion of the job.

The business is well run and thoroughly recommended!"

Move from the Highlands of Scotland down to central belt. Due to timing of house sales furniture was stored with Scottish Removals until a move in date was arranged.

"Having been very nervous about moving, due to the fact I had not done for 30 years, I could not have been more pleased with my service from Scottish Removals. From the girls in the office arranging the move, to the removal men themselves I could not have found more friendlier and professional services anywhere. Everything was handled with care, on time and with complete professionalism. Not an item was scratched or broken and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. They made what seemed like a massive job for me much easier and I cannot thank them enough."

From Isle of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, to rural Carmarthenshire, including ferries.
 
Cost: £6000
 

"Everything about the removal team - including vehicle, equipment and materials - inspired confidence. The move was carried out very efficiently. The team worked very hard, and without complaint (though as they neared the end of loading - and unloading, they were definitely slowing down and perspiring. There was a number of small damages to furniture, but nothing that we felt needed repair or recompense. We would have no hesitation in recommending this business to others moving to or from the west Highlands and Islands of Scotland."

Household contents to be moved from an island in the Uists to mainland England, involving two ferry crossings at a time of limited availability due to COVID.
 
Cost: £4995
 

"From the outset, on my request for a removals quote, Melissa provided quick responses with clear explanations, keeping me informed about the status of the ferry bookings and other logistics. It was clear that she had a good working relationship with CalMac. On the day, the two men worked efficiently to load the lorry, handling my items safely and taking good care to keep floor surfaces as clean as possible. The household contents were unloaded on timetable, two days later in England.
I recommend Scottish Removal Services as an efficient company, who took away the stress of moving my contents from the Western Isles to Berkshire."

Customer Review
 
Home move from London to Edinburgh (during second lockdown!), but we needed to store our items for several months in between. We also needed a small number of items picked up and dropped off at our home in Skye, so it was complex!

"We couldn't have been happier with Scottish Removal who made our move seem so simple. We had to move out of London during lockdown but needed our things to be held in storage before moving to Edinburgh. We also needed a handful of items dropped off and picked up from our home on Skye.

From Day One, Melissa and Claire in the office were extremely clear and helpful. They explained everything to me in such a user-friendly way, and were sensitive to the strange COVID times we were living in. I felt completely supported and at ease throughout the whole process.

In London we used their packing service, which was seamless. They were careful with all our things and when everything arrived in Edinburgh it was labelled clearly. The teams were always punctual, polite and efficient.

I would not hesitate to recommend Scottish Removals to anyone, and I will use them again in the future."

Furniture - To uplift, store and then return while a renovation of the property took place.

"We found Scottish Removals very easy to work with. A simple phone call to discuss our needs and potential timescale for the storage. We supplied them with a list of the items to be stored and the men duly arrived to collect them. The extra time needed due to Covid plus extra build time did not seem to phase the firm. Our furniture came back in great condition. We are delighted and would definitely recommend them to anyone moving house or needing to store items as we did. This is far better than self-storage as apart from the actual moving of the furniture, the onus of ensuring the goods were aired and not damaged was taken care of by Scottish Removals - Great peace of mind!"

Melissa and Claire by phone and email. Phil and Dylan returning the furniture.

Furniture and other items from storage unit in Crewe, Cheshire to the Island of North Uist, Western Isles of Scotland via ferry. Lot of shed/garage items, including large toolbox on wheels, pillar drill and 8 spare tyres
 
Cost: £2740
 

"We had furniture and other items in a storage unit in Crewe that were transported to the Outer Hebrides in Scotland, via ferry. From start to finish the service was impeccable. Good communication throughout. The crew who emptied the storage unit were friendly and helpful, giving advice on last minute packing. They were calm and reassuring as I organised a lot of small items that we'd put in there at the last minute and weren't ready! No pressure at all. Delivery arrangements got tricky due to the restricted and overbooked ferries, but the team were adaptable and all our stuff arrived safely as planned. The whole process was smooth and stress free and I am so glad we used Scottish Removal Services. They were just brilliant!"

The move was local, a distance of about 20 miles, we did our own packing prior to the removal. The move included a baby grand piano, this whole procedure was left in the hands of the Scottish Removals company.

"The company was very helpful from start to finish making sure we understood the needs of vehicle access as we had limited access and a steep drive, they were very accommodating and made appropriate plans for suitable sized vehicles for the whole move. They were quick, efficient and careful throughout. We were also impressed with the removal of our baby grand piano, the care and attention was excellent in both dismantling, loading, unloading and reassembling and positioning at the new house. The staff were very patient and understanding with the last minute packing items too. They made the process as easy and stress free as possible and we would not hesitate to recommend them.

Move was from Skye to Lincoln. The distance involved a 2 day run. Owing to the fact our house was not ready for occupation it meant delivery to an intermediate point.

"Scottish Removals located a company close to the eventual destination for which we were extremely grateful. This worked out very well. All was safely delivered.

The whole move was arranged extremely well and went without a hitch. All went as planned with packing done quickly and efficiently. I cannot see any other company bettering this service."
 
 
Team:
Mark & Jimmy. Great guys. And of course Mellisa.

The move from the Isle of Skye to North Yorkshire took place over four days. Due to a breakdown in my own travel arrangements I missed the final day, but my son-in-law deputised for me and said that the unloading proceeded smoothly.

"All the staff, from the initial contact with the head office to the final unloading, were friendly and professional. Everything happened at the pre-arranged time. The packing was carefully and sensitively done. Not a single item was damaged or marked in any way. The boxes were clearly and logically labelled and unloaded into the appropriate rooms on arrival. The whole procedure was beautifully performed and a potentially stressful occasion became an enjoyable experience."
