Quite a long drive to get to new premises and had to wait quite a white before being able to collect keys, so our removal team had quite a long want before they could start unloading.
 
Cost: £1399

A move of hundreds of miles taking 5 days to accomplish and excellently planned, organised and fulfilled.
 
Cost: £7000
 

"We did not get competitive quotes from other removers as the word of mouth reputation of Scottish Removals was sufficient to reassure us that they would do a good job. In the event they were excellent.....the whole team from the office based staff to the drivers were brilliant."

The move was from the Isle of Skye to Nottinghamshire some 500 miles away. We had a big problem where our new house sale was not completed in time but Melissa organised a local storage facility close to our new house which lessened our stress levels! Scottish removals organised everything for us and we cannot thank them enough.

"This has to be the best removal/storage comoany in the whole of the UK. Melissa and the team went above and beyond to help us and make the whole experience as stress free as possible. We encountered a big problem where our new house sale (500 miles away) was not completed before the delivery of our furniture but Melissa organised a storage company close to what would be our new house to take our furniture on a temporary basis.We cannot thank the whole team enough for a fantastic service. We cannot recommend this company enough."

Uplift items from one property and store for 4 months before delivering to new property
 
Cost: £1000
 

"Comprehensive details from the beginning from staff, and adequate delivery of packing boxes. Removal men turned up on time and removed boxes (of which there were many)quickly and carefully together with furniture items and took great care with the mattress (wrapping it in plastic) and electrical items, also including guitars which were wrapped by them. Items were stored for around 4 months before being delivered to new address.

Contact from removal men on day of delivery giving an almost exact timescale (difficult with the relocation from Isle of Skye to Lancashire. Removal men were pleasant, efficient and tidy, covering carpets and leaving items where requested to.

Excellent service from everyone involved, and highly recommended."

The removal company visited us so that they could give us a quote. Several of their employees came over a few days to pack our goods up and remove them to storage. Once we were ready for the goods to be delivered to our new home, they were brought to us within a few days.

"Overall the move went very well, there were a few breakages, but nothing major. The company worked very hard to fit in with our timescale.

The people that we dealt with were very helpful and considorate."

A long distance move from Skye to Devon with a period of storage of belongings on site at Scottish Removal Services.

"We had an excellent service from Scottish Removal Services. Everything was explained well to us in regard to the storage, prices and the pick up and delivery of our belongings. Moving from Skye to Devon is certainly a long distance move but the service we received made the whole thing a lot easier. We would recommend them and say a big thank you to all the staff for their help and service."

We moved from Isle of Lewis to Isle of Skye - September 2019.
 
Cost: £1600
 

"I cannot recommend Scottish Removals highly enough. From the initial query stage to the last moment the men drove off after delivering everything, the service was first class. I rarely do reviews, but I had to make an exception on this occasion. The company moved heaven and earth for us and went out of their way to make sure we got the perfect service. The removal guys were excellent, friendly, courteous, hard-working and even left a wee 'wishing you the best in your new home' card. If you're in any reservation, then I hope this review leaves you in no doubt. If we were to move again, I'd pick up the phone in a heart-beat!"

Customer Review
 
Items removed from one home and kept in store by the firm for 19 months, before moving furniture to our new home. They were extremely professional, while being friendly, and everything was in good order when we got it back. They were very happy to move things to exactly where we wanted and even offered to move things again, if we had changed our mind about where we wanted things to go.

"The staff who dealt with our initial query, right through to the final day when we got our property back, were extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. Claire in particular was excellent and friendly and made the whole process easy.

The staff who did the actual handling of our property were also excellent and extremely careful. I had no worries that any paintwork or carpets would be damaged.

While I hope never to have to move again, if I did, I would certainly use this company again."

Booked the firm to help empty an old office building. The job involved taking bags of rubbish to be stored for collection, moving office furniture to a different location and moving confidential waste.

"Faultless!
Staff arrived on time, were polite, funny and professional.
Both were very smart in clean and fresh uniform.
They both did al that was asked of them and more. Highlyy recommended."

Moving from a quiet area in Cumbria to the Isle of Skye. The Skye property had a fairly difficult access - off a single track road, with hairpin bends and a long ''unmade'', fairly steep drive with a tight access!
 
Cost: £3000
 

"From start to finish the whole process was fantastic. Due to the difficult access at the property we were moving to, we were recommended to use Scottish Removals by the estate agent. So glad we did! Melissa was so helpful over the phone, dealing with queries and explaining the whole move, which due to the distance and the access, was to take place over several days. Melissa was also quick to sort out an alternative solution when the completion date was possibly going to change. Billy and Lewis (and the other man who helped unpack - sorry I've forgotten your name!) were fantastic - we've never seen such hard workers! Friendly, polite and worked without a fuss. And obviously everything was packed really well as nothing was broken or damaged, despite a long journey and some very potholed and bumpy roads! A huge, huge thank you to everyone involved!"

We moved from Scotland to rented accommodation, our furniture was put in storage for 3 1/2 months. Moved to smaller permanent home. Company agreed to dispose of some items for us and took a couple of items on to our daughter a few miles from us.
 
Cost: £4000

"Staff were friendly and efficient and looked after us and our belongings pretty well.
The only down side was one of the settee cushions were damaged by a mouse. Company agreed to pay 100 compensation, which we thought was fair considering the extra things they'd done for us. "

My move was hindered by a delay in the completion of both my sale and purchase . However Scottish Removals Dealt admirably with the challenge I presented them and all ended perfectly, The move was from a large 4 bedroomed house with three large public rooms , double garage and large garden shed . It included extensive packing and,, because of the settlement delay, storage for a week. The return journey was just over 470 miles.
 
Cost: £4401
 

"As previously explained the last minute change in my settlement dates were a challenge all round but Scottish Removals had made contingency plans to cater for such a difficulty.
The move itself went like clockwork and the packing service was absolutely first class .
The management team were alert and very much on the ball thus giving me great confidence in the whole process ."
