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: 83%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the Code of Practice?
 
Description: 99%
Before the move, did your remover give you a clear description, price and timetable for the work to be carried out?
 
Loss or damage: 89%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 73%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 82%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 90%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 75%
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.

Customer Review
 
Moving from our house to two in different parts of East Anglia and London. This was well planned and organised by them, including adapting to late exchange and completing in the same week.
 
Cost: £2500

"As described above the team were well organised, helpful, polite and courteous through out the move.
They went over and above in assisting us to pack a large three story house in just over a day.
They were very careful in packing and we had not experienced any damage to our belongings. "

Needed, packing and storage of pictures and furniture items. This was separate from packing and actual removal of all other items to the new address.
The manoeuvres took a total of 4 1/2 days.
It was 'wet' much of the time gaining access to the new dueling required extremely careful driving of the large removal lorry.
 
Cost: £1727

"A total of 5 men were involved with the different stages of the move.
3 Men drove down to the new property all worked very hard. They were careful and courteous, and the wet weather conditions were for from ideal.
One item, required at the new property, found its way into storage. This was subsequently sorted out.
generally we were very pleased by the moving process, and the help and advice given. Thank you all very much"

Customer Review
 
The move was from a small town in southern France. They arrived with a van and lorry as access to the house was difficult. Two pieces of furniture had to be lowered through a door and balcony. Excellent packing and friendly and professional.
 
Cost: £5880

"Dawan and Ross were so very helpful and easy to have around. They moved the furniture and packed up every thing expertly. It all had to be transferred from a van into the large lorry at the bottom of the village. Kind and courteous nothing phased them. After care is great. I was very nervous of the move and thanks to them it was smooth, quick and a joy. Arrived on time and left on time. Job were the best, thank you so much. "

I have a 3 storey house so lots of stairs to negotiate. I had specific requirements regarding a number of items which I wanted packed, but not if this meant we exceeded a whole no.of storage crates. The team was very good in accommodating this.
 
Cost: £1033

"It was a pleasure to be moved by Tony, Creoff and Same. They were considerate, polite and efficient. Tony led the team extremely well and his packing skills are excellent, so much so that I was amazed it all went into 4 crates. I have praise also for Glenn who did the estimation and Matthew who promptly delivered my packing materials. "
