We moved from a large property to a new build so had a lot of possessions to shift. We had an estimate based on the contents of our property and size. Estimate also given on what boxes we would required packing which can be supplied. Even packed my garden pots and ornaments

"Having not moved house for over 30 years we were looking for a reliable and reputable company who would handle our house move. Quicksilver were recommended to us and we were extremely impressed with the service we received. The team turned up on time and worked their way through our house, nothing deemed to be a problem. Unpacking at the new property was also carried out in an organised manner.
We would highly recommend Quicksilver to anyone looking to move house. A professional team who managed to make the move a lot less stressful than we expected.
Sadly I can't remember all their names, but a great bunch of lads.
I must also mention the team in the office who handle the admin side of things.
Thank you to all"

Home relocation, 1-bed apartment
 
Cost: £2000
 

"Quicksilver sales team was fast and helpful by email and on the phone, even when I asked information about different options for collection and delivery.
The service provided was fuss-free, on time, and without any issues. Even the small instruments that I had packed made it safely to my new home. The handling team was careful and helpful on both removal and delivery. Would definitely contact for a quote for my next move."

The whole experience of moving for us was horrendous in a way that we had to move from a very large house into a cottage for 3 months as purchase of a new house fell through.

"The move/s went great. Getting the truck up the drive to packing sorting and getting fixed up in a temporary house was great with them all assisting and helping. lst class The boys were brilliant in getting furniture needed for a short period and rest all packed up to go into storage. They were a great bunch of guys and very professional. When it came to delivering furniture from storage again they were great. They moved things out so other furniture could go in. I have no problem with recommending Quick Silver to anyone. They made the thought of a very stressful move so much nicer, nothing too much bother."

Moved our son into his first home.

"We were let down by a removal firm, I rang Quicksilver at 10am to see if they had any availability and they sorted it straight away. We had a removal van at our house by 1pm and had moved into our new home but 4pm. Fantastic, professional service and very good value."

Moving from our first home, a 3 bed to a 5 bed less than 10 mins away.
 
Cost: £1200
 

"Absolutely brilliant, the team Anton, Rob, Kane, Kev and Dean were just fantastic. They were so fast, so professional and made what can be quite an awkward experience really easy. Rob worked tirelessly to take down our furniture and put it back together at the other end, such a relief it was all straightforward. Only hitch was a sofa that wouldn’t fit back out of the house (we had put a wall up since purchase!) so they guys were great at advising best course of action. Window out, sofa out and window back in and all was fine. Great service, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend."

On time, the removal team were friendly and very efficient . I gave them a key for my new place and when I arrived at property the team had my sofa ,bed , tv stand and dining table all put together and in place. The rest of the boxes where stacked neatly ready for me to unpack. Very happy with quicksilver would definitely recommend them.
 
Cost: £588
 

"When I contacted quicksilver a gentleman came out to assess the amount of furniture etc to be removed. He was very thorough and polite advised of all the necessary insurance etc. An email was sent detailing costs.

The removal team arrived on time were friendly and efficient all my belongs were put together I.e. bed put together , and boxes stacked neatly .

Very please with the service no complaints at all.

Would recommend quick silver to any one."

Customer Review
 
Relocation from Newcastle Upon Tyne to Worcestershire via short term storage.
 
Cost: £4500
 

"All aspects were dealt with in a very positive manner. We had several quotes but went with Quicksilver based on a combination of pricing, ability to manage a move outside the area and the positive attitude of everyone I dealt with.

Not long before the move date some access issues at the new property were bought to our attention by the estate agent. The ability of a very large van to make the tight turn off the main road were raised. The Operations Manager called me and reassured us that no matter what they would get us in. He contacted the vendors removal team and worked out a plan. Nothing was a problem.

On the day access did prove tricky but with the very positive attitude of the team on the day I knew they would not be defeated. They painstakingly manoeuvred the van down the drive inch by inch.

I could not rate the whole team more highly, we made the right choice!

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."
