Move from 2 bed in Walker to 4 bed in Chapel Park. A few specialist items like gloss cabinets and framed NUFC shirts.
 
Cost: £590
 

"As first time house movers, Quicksilver really helped make the whole experience low stress for us! Even from the initial survey they were really helpful, with Jo answering all our questions and the recommended amount of boxes & packing materials was spot on. Susan in Business Support was excellent too when we were trying to get our moving date confirmed with solicitors. On the day our movers Tom and Lenny were great - friendly and very efficient, nothing was a problem. Arrived on time and finished quickly and gave special care and packing to valuable items. They were very flexible whilst we were waiting for solicitor calls etc, keeping in touch for regular progress updates so they were ready when we got our keys. Massive thanks to the extra group of lads who turned up to help unload too. Will definitely use Quicksilver again and recommend to others."

"Brilliant service, your firm came recommended to me, and lived up to expectations. 3 very friendly helpful men, who took the stress away from me. Very efficient service. At my new home everything was placed where I requested. They took great care of the furniture and fixtures and fittings, a massive thank you."

Me and my partner are both teachers and have an insane amount of books (like, 20 bookcases worth) and we moved us and our 3 year old from Newcastle to Southampton
 
Cost: £4200
 

"Me and my partner moved us and our 3 year old from Newcastle to Southampton. We already had a quote sorted with another firm but at the last minute our original movers told us they were busy. We found Quicksilver and someone came out the next day and sent us a quote the next morning. From start to finish everyone I dealt with was very efficient, friendly, and explained everything thoroughly and clearly. The packers and movers themselves were very clean, friendly, and packed everything very well. The guys were so friendly and polite and fast, they were fantastic. I genuinely can't think of any improvements that could have been made. I would have no hesitation recommending this firm to anyone and would definitely use them again. Hope you all got home in time for the match guys! :D Thanks so much for your help, brilliant service all round :)"

We were moving from the north east to the midlands and were fortunate to have good dry days for removal and relocation.

"Quicksilver staff from start to finish were all polite, friendly and helpful. We were booking with only a week or so to get things organised and they recognised the pressure we were under.

The removal vans arrived at the times given to us and the teams worked efficiently and with care and thoughtfulness.

We would definitely recommend Quicksilver as a caring and efficient Removal company."

Move from house to 1st floor apartment

"Very friendly when I contacted the company. Came quickly to give quote.we moved at a very busy time but they were able to work around our preferred dates.
The pre packing service was excellent & very quick.
On the day of removal the Team were fantastic and very patient when we had a delay in getting the keys.
The team never stopped working and could not have been more helpful."

Our move date was given at short notice but Quicksilver we’re able to accommodate it, luckily. I was nervous about the move but the staff I spoke to were really helpful, gave me all the information I needed and rang back when they said they would. The crew turned up on the day early and were quick to get on. As a keen gardener I had more pots and garden furniture than I realised, the crew were amazing and realised we needed another van. This was sent for with no fuss which helped keep everything on track. Some furniture needed to be taken apart and reassembled- which was carried out to a high standard. The crew were polite and friendly throughout the whole day.

"I would recommend Quicksilver for any home move. They are a well organised business and this is clear both before the move and on the date. They arrived on time which was appreciated. Everything was moved carefully. Furniture was reassembled well and nothing was broken or scratched during the move. Even on a hot day they kept working at a good pace and packed the van well to maximise the space available."
 
 
Team:
I would say a big thank you to all the staff. Philip and Richard in the office and the crew.

We moved from Surrey to Northumberland from a 4 bed semi with loft conversion to a 4 bed detached and quicksilver were absolutely fantastic.

"
They came over the day before to check all was in order and on the day nothing was too much trouble. The team were super friendly, careful and packed quickly but with real attention to detail.

We had wardrobes that could no longer fit down the stairs due to loft conversion and they dismantled for us which was great.

We had rain when the team unpacked and they took great care to minimise the dirt coming into the house. Everything was placed where we asked and again the team were friendly helpful and careful.

I would have no hesitation in using quicksilver again…. Although I do hope never to move again!!!!!"

Move from a 5 bedroom detached to a 4 bedroom detached at a weeks notice.
 
Cost: £1400
 

"The team turned up on time and just cracked on with the job, they didn't moan about difficult items or moves like the 3 piece sofa having to be lowered down the stairwell.
They were happy in their work and a pleasure to deal with our move was very stressful but the team made the physical move very easy adn without any additional hassle.

We couldn't thank them enough and couldn't recommend them any higher."

Moved from a 2 bed house in Fenham to a 4 bed house in Melton Park. Included packing service.
 
Cost: £1150
 

"The quotation appointment was thorough and prompt, very professional appearance and demeanour.
We were very happy with the price we were quoted and were happy to proceed.
Due to some issues with our buyer's finances we were not able to completely confirm our moving date, which was given at short notice but not fully confirmed till the week of the move. I was in contact with one of the customer advisers who advised me that they needed the acceptance form to book it in, but with the uncertainty surrounding our buyers I couldn't commit to the cost at that point. I then received a call from a gentleman who advised our vendors were booking their services too, and that he couldn't book the day we had requested for our combined move, but could do the following day. We were fine with this and he advised we would be in the diary. I don't know whether he assumed we had submitted the acceptance form already and if it was just a miscommunication, but a week before our move they advised that they were fully booked now and couldn't fit us in, stating that we had not submitted the acceptance form as the reason for dropping us. This was quite a stressful thing to hear so close to the move date. But they then called the following day to say they'd had a cancellation and could fit us in after all. This was the only negative in the process - and due to our unique situation of not being able to confirm moving date until a few days before.
The team who came to pack and then complete the move were fantastic. Very good attitudes and hard workers, they packed everything extremely well with no breakages or damage. They did an excellent job.
Overall we are very pleased with the service we received and would certainly recommend Quicksilver to other people."
 
 
Team:
Liam (packer/mover) - was particularly good.

Two vans arrived, loaded up in 2.5 hours, brought everything to the new house. Waited patiently and then unloaded into the rooms as directed.

"The team arrived on time and were extremely quick and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble and we were impressed at how careful they were with the furniture and our walls!
I would definitely recommend Quicksilver Removals for home moving and would use them again in the future. Many thanks lads!"

Move carried out on Mon 10 May. This was a small move and only involved a small van and was fully completed in 4 hours.
 
Cost: £528
 

"Staff were helpful and engaged. Removal started exactly on time. Small damage to last delivered item was pointed out immediately to me.
Bed was disassembled/assembled correctly - this was the only job that was outside of load and deliver - no packaging required.
Geordie and team were extremely courteous throughout the operation.

Large three storey house with an office moving into a larger four storey house with two offices, and lots of bikes, etc.
 
Cost: £1100
 

"At short notice Quicksilver came out, explained everything and provided a quote within 1 day. On the day of the move the team of four worked hard and communicated throughout, they were fun and respectful and made a tough day so much easier. A very good experience all round."
