Relocation between England and Scotland
 
Cost: £1480
 

"From our first contact with Thomson’s removals everyone has appeared confident and informative in the roles they conduct. From arranging a video chat for the move quotation to arranging storage and a removal day that fit in with our requirements nothing appeared too much trouble.
Moving is a stressful time but the minute the drivers arrived I was told “we are here to take over the stress and your time to relax”. Despite a last minute schedule change everything went as expected. Having travelled 4 hours to our home to begin loading the drivers were smiling and ready to tackle the day filling us with ease. Everything arrived at our new home in the condition it left our old home in.
Very professional organisation. 👍🏻"

It was an incredibly stressful time moving house , closing dates, mortgages in place, insurance, SEPA , lawyers etc. .

"Hi ,
I would totally recommend Thomsons Removals Thomsons were excellent, their flexibility and in particular the service at a personal level from the chaps doing the removals etc…

When selecting removal company we had to try and identify number of boxes , pieces of furniture, appliances etc both indoor and outdoor.. Thomsons were understanding, flexible and helpful."

Customer Review
 
A long distance UK move, and storage facilites required for several weeks.
 
Cost: £3000
 

"We were offered the insurance package, which we accepted. No terms and conditions of the policy were given. The Insurance Policy was invalid due to us packing items ourselves, and yet when our furniture arrived at our new property very damaged, Thompson Removals would not facilitate our claim, The underwriters of the Policy also refused the claim as the Policy was only valid if Thomsons Removals undertook all of the packing on our behalf, and yet the quotation for the move clearly stated 'Customer to pack'. Hence, the Insurance Policy would never have paid out and should not have been offered to a customer who chose to pack their own belongings.
The management of Thomsons Removals were not helpful in any way, and refused to communicate with us, instead, directing us to the Insurance Underwriters, who also referred us back to Thomsons Removals.
No code of practice was provided by Thompsons Removals despite many requests for it.
Would never use this company again."

Terrific Removal Company.

"First class removal service from a local company who fully understood our requirements.

Covid restrictions resulted in several last minute date changes and Thomson accommodated us every time.

Office and delivery staff were always polite and helpful.

Would recommend Thomson Removals to anyone.

Customer Review
 
We used Thomson Removals in January this year when we relocated from Glasgow to Dorset.
 
Cost: £3588
 

"We were very happy with overall service from Thomson Removals. On the day itself, the team arrived on time, were courteous and very obliging, plus removal lorry looked smart. In fact, moving as we were from Glasgow to Dorset, I was very proud to have this company represent Scotland. This wouldn't normally be a consideration and I don't usually leave reviews - good or bad - but the Thomson Removal team, from Estimator to Packers, deserve a shout out."

Removal team expertly and professionally packed and removed all of my belongings, including a cast-iron frame, vintage piano, from my 3rd floor flat (no lifts, just stairs) into storage in March. Safe and secure storage of my goods for 5 months at competitive price. Stored belongings and piano all delivered out of storage and took only 2 hours to unload and install in my new home. (No breakages or damages reported, full insurance cover offered by Thomson to suit individual requirements.) I have used Thomson Removals 3 times in recent years and have always found them to be helpful, courteous, professional, good value for money and highly experienced in house removals and I can highly recommend them.

Absolutely amazing move in a very difficult time during pandemic

"Thomson was Ist class as the first date for moving was cancelled due to lockdown but Thomson kept in contact throughout this. The actual move was amazing move due to John and Greg, father and son team they are the most delightful and professional people I have met nothing was any effort for both of them and more so when we arrived at our new home.

They both made our move the most enjoyable and effortless and much appreciated their effort and hard work on the day and especially during a very difficult time due to the pandemic"

House move from Glasgow to Prestwick.

Moving from a home I have lived in for 45 years near Falkirk to live nearer my daughter and family in Ayrshire. My goods need to go into storage as my new house won''t be ready for a few weeks yet.

"From start to finish the whole endeavour was handled beautifully. From the initial contact, through to costing, to booking and even managing to change the date due to issues from the purchaser of my home, I felt I was being dealt with in an extremely efficient and friendly manner.

There was a small unavoidable delay in the arrival of the REMOVALS vehicle but as soon as they arrived they got to work. It was all done quickly and expertly and nothing was any trouble.

Heartfelt thanks to everyone."

Very smooth move by a great removal company.

"Thomson Removals were excellent. Everyone from the office staff to the removal team were very helpful, polite and efficient. Liz gave us good advice on the day of the move when things were very stressful and uncertain. Thankfully it all worked out and we are happy in our new home! Nothing is too much trouble for this company. Highly recommend!"

Friendly, helpful staff who packed everything I did not have time to do on the day.

"Friendly staff both at the office and the removers themselves.The price was very competitive and I was able to speak to staff on the telephone to discuss what I wanted. I was also pleased that a member of staff came prior to the move to assess the job rather than me having to list everything via the internet as one company wanted.

The removers were happy to pack items I just did not have time to pack prior to the move at a reasonable additional cost.

A member of my family was at the new address to oversee the unpacking as I had to split my journey overnight due to the distance. I arrived just a few minutes after they had left and she was delighted with their efficiency and helpfulness."

This was the removal of all items from a 3 bedroom end terrace house with selected items being dropped off at 2 other addressed before the remainder being delivered to the final new address. The lorry had to be loaded in 3 stages to accommodate the 3 different addressed for the drop off.
 
Cost: £480
 

"I used Thomsons 5 years ago and I am pleased to say that the professional standards set then are still being used by the company. From the first phone call to discuss the details and obtain the quote right to the final move into the new house the service was courteous, caring and very professional. Despite my move being one pick up but three drop offs nothing was a problem. I would have no hesitation in recommending Thomsons to friends and family and they will be my first port of call in I require their services in the future. Congratulations to all the team."

Assisted with 2 moves from Essex to Scotland, did the unloads at Scotland end. Property had many steps.

"Very helpful on the phone assisting in securing the drop in Scotland. The crew assisted the company who brought the goods up. They worked well together, worked efficiently and were polite and friendly.

We would use this company again."

Removal of furniture and possessions from flat into storage for nine months, followed by transportation from storage into new property. Cost in three parts: 1) Removal to storage (£300) 2) storage cost - 9 X £52 per month (£468) 3) storage to property (£442)
 
Cost: £1210
 

"All staff members handling calls were pleasant and helpful. The team on exiting removal were prompt, helpful and friendly.

During the period of storage, I experienced problems with the setting up of the direct debit and on one occassion, was contacted over a 'missed' payment, which had actually been paid.

At the time of arranging transfer of possessions from storage, I had to prompt the company for written confirmation of the booking.

As before, the team on the day of the removal of possessions from storage were excellent, helpful and friendly.

Overall, I was impressed with the movers and value for money but was disappointed that the clerical side of the business was not as good."

From a first floor flat in Glasgow. To a house in Dundonald in Ayrshire. Due to the existence of a cycle lane outside the flat the removal van had to be parked across a busy road in the centre of Glasgow.

"Quote was competitive. Telephone contact with the company was helpful. Guys on the day were excellent. Despite having to take our furniture across a busy road, they remained good natured and willing to do whatever was necessary. On arrival at our new house, they checked where we wanted everything to go and didn't leave until they had checked we were completely happy. Great service."
