Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Code of Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Code of practice: 88%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the Code of Practice?
 
Description: 100%
Before the move, did your remover give you a clear description, price and timetable for the work to be carried out?
 
Loss or damage: 94%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 75%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 88%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 83%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 76%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the procedure for making claims and to whom complaints should be referred?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

We recently moved from Cyncoed to Penarth We had not moved for Over 25 years and were quite stressed. Shaun and his team from Chapmans were the epitome of calm professional and friendly. Our belongings were treated withy care and respect. They all worked tirelessly and with a smile. A pleasure to do business with. Would thoroughly recommend. However , donít think I will be moving for a while 🧹
 
Cost: £1800

Great service, arrived when they said and just cracked on. Second day the same. Friendly and helpful throughout. We had to change the date of our move a few times due to chain complications , however Chapmans still pulled off the move during this busy period. Would highly recommend.
 
Cost: £1500
 

"From our initial home visit to receiving our quote was very quick. Everything was described in detail and the home visit was very though.
All time lines were covered and payment terms.
We had a part load (day before) which all went as described and on the day of actual move likewise. House was vacated by 10.30am!

Unloading was quick and efficient,

Could have done the whole thing cheaper , but I think for absolute peace of mind and a very professional service we would highly recommend Chapmans,

"

Customer Review
 
My things were moved from a Birmingham store to Fox''s in Newport, (but run by Chapman''s in Cardiff), South Wales, about twenty years ago. Both Chapman''s and Fox''s have always treated me courteously and have moved my things efficiently.

"All my enquiries have been dealt with efficiently. As I live entirely from my old age pension, plus pension credit, I am very hard put to it to be able to pay their fees for removals to a Cardiff auction house and their rent charges. Thus I am obliged to sell all that I own and finish storing anything. But that is not their fault!"

Move was well organised and particularly useful was the removal of most of the goods the day before. The guys who did the removals were very helpful and obliging. Nothing really to criticise and I would recommend them to other customers.
 
Cost: £1600
 

"I think the move was very professional and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble for the guys who did the removals."

Moving from one area in Cardiff to another area.
 
Cost: £1350
 

"You did a great job and were very respectful and careful of our house and its contents.

The house we were moving to had their movers let them down, so you were patient and helped them too.

Thank you. Well worth paying a bit extra for you to pack too.

Packed fragile goods, next day cleared house removed furniture etc to storage 200 miles away. Stopped on the way to drop off some flower pots at our sonís house. Packed goods into storage .
 
Cost: £1860
 

"From the beginning, all aspects were competently taken care of by the whole team. From helpful suggestions to the offer of dropping off at a different address some plants we had been concerned about, the whole process could not have been made easier. The men were helpful, friendly and professional."

Decommissioned hospital beds from the prop hire company to a location in Cardiff, for a charity bed push event.

"We were let down at the last minute, so contacted Chapmans in the hope that would be able to offer some assistance as we were really up against it. We were in real danger of pulling our charity event which was booked for the weekend.
We contacted Keith, who was so helpful and didn't hesitate to offer help. The next day, two of the team had collected and delivered the beds to the location for FREE. Our charity event was able to go ahead as planned and we managed to raise over £4,000 for our patients at Rookwood Hospital who have suffered an acquired brain injury.
We cannot thank them enough."

The men were very helpful considering we weren''t fully packed,and we had some very heavy equipment to move from the garage. They worked hard and efficiently with good humour. They certainly earned every penny of their wages.
 
Cost: £4500
 

"The move covered 3 days-there and back. we were not able to give a precise date for the move due to our buyers procrastination; but the manager was very helpful in keeping the dates clear for us. The removal men arrived on time and were very sympathetic to the fact that they could see we were both exhausted - my husband's 80 and I'm 78 - and we weren't fully prepared for the move, so they obligingly packed quite a lot of things for us. All the time they were cheerful and efficient, we certainly can't fault them. When we arrived at our new home everything
was unloaded due to the fact that our son was here to let them in."

We had Chapmans do our packing as well as our removals, they arrived the day before moving and packed, we did a walk round and explained where everything was to go at the other end. Then moving day came and they did fantastic job and would highly recommended, and well worth the couple hundred pounds more to have them pack, took a lot of stress out of the move.
 
Cost: £1083
 

"We had Chapmans do our packing as well as our removals, they arrived the day before moving and packed, we did a walk around with them, they asked questions, double checked where we would want specific items to go and then they just got on with it, they where very efficient and ensured that we still had room to manoeuvre around. They did an amazing job, i would never have got it done on time. Then on the day the guys all came and introduced themselves, again another great team, they systematically loaded the lorries and it was all done in about 3/4 hours, again we did a walk round and explained where everything was to go at the other end and they made the jigsaw fit the lorries and everything was handled with such care, as if it was their own, not a single thing damaged or broken, fantastic job and would highly recommended, and well worth the couple hundred pounds more to have them pack, took a lot of stress out of the move.

We would like to say a massive thank you to Nathan, Gareth, Martin, Barry and Robert. You did an amazing job and made the time so much easier for us."

Domestic removal 50 miles in South Wales.
 
Cost: £1300
 

"Whilst the removers were polite and speedy, the did not take as much care with our items as we felt they should. An expensive television was damaged to the extent that we have had to buy a replacement - we think they did not use a protective bag for it. Also at least one box was dropped, and glassware and china broken. We have not made a claim as we discovered there is a limit under the policy of £40 per item, so it is not worth the trouble."
