Moved about 35mins drive away, from a 2-bed terrace, to a 3-bed semi. Items included a bed, large sofa suite, tables, chairs, home-office equipment, art and glassware.

"Movers were extremely efficient, professional, and kept in contact throughout the process.
No faults, no issues, no breakage or damage to anything.
They had the house cleared and loaded up in about 70-80mins, and they unloaded everything to the designated rooms on the other side in probably about an hour!
Can’t fault them at all. Really happy with the service."

Liam and Geordie arrived promptly to removed our furniture from our home to put in storage for a few months.

"Whole experience absolutely so smooth, as moving home with all your precious contents you need to have assurance that they are going to be looked after. They were really brilliant, and took great care. Very professionally, and friendly."

Customer Review
 
We had been stressed to ribbons and panicking like mad for days getting everything ready for moving.

"Dean from quicksilver knocked on our door on the morning of the move while his colleague parked the removal van and everything was absolutely fine from that moment on. They made us feel calm from the outset and we knew we were in good hands straightaway. My biggest concern was the disassembling and reassembling of our 2 giant wardrobes but my concerns were needless thanks to the care and professionalism of Dean. Dean and Graeme were joined, when we got to the new house, by George and Liam and far from being stressed we were even having a good laugh along the way. I can’t praise these lads highly enough, everyone of them worked extremely hard but kept a great and friendly humour the whole time. With a competitive price and a fantastic team if you’re looking to move house you won’t do better than ‘quicksilver’.

The move was made as smooth as possible by a fantastic team and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them."

Three bed semi to a small assisted living flat , two floors up and removal company unable to use the lift!
 
Cost: £460
 

"The move was for my mother who was leaving a three bed semi to go to a small upstairs flat. The team arrived before 8 and worked non stop without any refreshments or break. Getting the keys was delayed by a couple of hours but as soon as they had access they were at the new flat and didn’t complain at all about climbing two flights of stairs as McCarthy and stone did not allow use of the lifts. They were fabulous actually. So cheerful, nothing was a bother! Can’t fault."

So sorry, three lads but I did not catch names

Would recommend Quicksilver. The lads carrying out the move were careful with my belongings in particular a very heavy display cabinet which was worth an awful lot of money. They kept in touch after packing my belongings and held them on the van during the day, waiting very patiently till the keys to my new property were finally released at 4pm. The unfortunate delay being down to my sellers solicitor and estate agent being totally incompetant! They took care in bringing everything into the new property and placed them where I requested. I found the charge for the work to be reasonable, cheaper than another 2 local removal companies I contacted. The only thing I would like to point out was the ladies were a little sullen when I called in to pay for my removals in person. Sorry I can not recall the cost of removals but it was somewhere between £550 and £600.

"Arrived on time. Loaded everything on to the van promptly. Left me a telephone number to contact when I had collected the keys to the new property.

Rang me after lunch to enquire if I had any update. Unfortunately I hadn't. By 4pm I finally received a call from my sellers incompetant estate agent that I could collect the keys.

The removal van had already parked outside the property. After informing them I was going to collect the keys they began unloading some of my belongings.

Once I arrived back the furniture was brought into the property and placed as I requested in the rooms of my choice.

The lads then bid a farewell after I signed the necessary paperwork. They were all friendly lads who just got on with what was expected of them.

I would recommend Quicksilver again simply because of the nice uncomplicated experience I had following a particularly stressful 6 months during which I was selling my home I'd lived in for over 23 years and had to deal with the most useless bunch of people I've ever had the misfortune to come across, who had the cheek to call themselves 'professionals'"

It was a residential move for a large property with high number of pictures and other fragile items.
 
Cost: £7000
 

"It was very easy, they came to do the survey quickly, the quote was below others we got. They were available for our dates, arrived promptly with a large and polite team of lads and got on with it. No problems, no breakages. Their foreman was very clear and communicated what they would do and how and they did it. Good service overall."

Customer Review
 
Local move from 5 bedroom end of terrace Heaton to 3 bedroom semi in Kenton. We opted for the packing service and over night storage before moving in.
 
Cost: £2298
 

"It was very easy to deal with Quicksilver both by phone and email, they always responded very quickly to emails and answered the phone equally quickly. Everyone we dealt with in the office was both friendly and efficient which helped a great deal with the overall stress of moving. We were really happy with the packing service and would certainly recommend this as it means you don't have to sit around looking at boxes for weeks. Everything was packed really well and as a consequence there were no damaged or broken items. On the day of the move the guys worked really hard, they were all very helpful and cheerful which goes a long way to making things stress free. We opted for the overnight storage, so we moved in the following day and again the guys we great and work very hard. They re-assembled our beds put the furniture just where we wanted it and even suggested a much better place for a large piece of furniture. Everything went very smoothly. Our TV unit was accidentally damaged, but they pointed it out to us and took it away and it was fully repaired, it was returned to us very quickly as good as new. All in all, I can't fault the service and would highly recommend Quicksilver. We had previously moved two years ago and used Pickfords and we found in terms of cost, communication and service Quicksilver was far better."

I had Quicksilver removers three years ago when I moved house and recently had my piano delivered which has been in cold storage since then.
 
Cost: £160
 

"I have found all aspects of the company very good to deal with.
The office staff have always been pleasant and helpful and the delivery men helpful and cheerful, sadly this is rarely the case these days so it has been my pleasure to deal with them and I would not hesitate to recommend them."

Move from 2 bed cottage to 2 bedroom bungalow. Quicksilver came out a few weeks before the move and provided an accurate quotation and assessed what needed to be moved. They accommodated the service the day before completion.
 
Cost: £648
 

"Outstanding service from the removal guys. They arrived ahead of agreed time, were very careful handling belongings and everything was protected by dust sheets and covers. The bed was dismantled and clothes taken in hangers. They made my elderly parent’s move a dream after a very stressful experience the day before with solicitors and estate agents. The guys were super friendly and went above and beyond expectations. I can’t thank them enough and would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a removal firm. If i could score 11 out of 10 I would. Thanks so much Quicksilver."

Local move from a three storey semi-detached property in a busy suburban area to an end terraced house in a village.
 
Cost: £1936
 

"Amazing - the level of service, professionalism, efficiency and whole experience couldn't have been better.
The team, on a hot day, were incredible. We ere put at ease, given lots of help and support getting packed up and unloaded, and made to feel that nothing was too much trouble.
Despite a long delay waiting to unload (owing to the previous owners not having moved out the new house) the team took time and care with all of our possessions, and did this around our children and pets constantly getting in the way.
We can't recommend Quicksilver enough. Everything from the delivery of the boxes through to the last items being unloaded was first class, and really reasonably priced."

The move was pretty straightforward, from a small house to a larger one about 10 mins drive away. We didn’t have a lot to take, so the move was done very efficiently. Nothing of high value or anything like that, as those were taken by myself in my car. We had to wait for the keys for the new house, and the guys were very accommodating to our schedule, and met us there when we gave the go ahead.
 
Cost: £528
 

"Quicksilver delivered an amazing service. Lewis and Liam were excellent at what they do, and they were lovely lads too. Got the job done quickly, but effectively, and worked around our requirements. The service was excellent too in terms of getting a quote and changing the date via the business support team. I’ll definitely use Quicksilver again if I need to move, and will be recommending the team too."
