Moved from my house in Bingley to Menston were it was to be stored until my renovation were finished.

"Mostly satisfied but I've found damaged items later due to boxes been dropped, the most expensive been a computer where the casin is smashed.

The moving guys worked very hard though and were very professional it's just sad about the couple of brakages I found so far..."

We were concerned to read this and tried to contact the customer immediately but unfortunately haven’t heard back from them. To my knowledge, we weren’t made aware of any damages and would have liked the opportunity to put this right for them. We have adequate insurance and although we are professional and take every care of our customers belongings, the odd damage can happen, we only ask for these to be brought to our attention within 7 days of removal as per our terms & conditions and they will be looked into immediately.

The whole move from start to finish was excellent, I was down sizing from a 3 bed semi to a 2 bed mid town house and what I thought was going to be a nightmare actually went really smoothly, all my larger furniture was dismantled without any hitches, even my plant pots which I had totally forgotten about were transported on the day. We had to wait until late afternoon on a Friday before I got the keys but once we were in everything was moved in and put back together in no time, even my washing machine was plumbed back in although it turned out they got the pipes/taps the wrong way round!!

"I was given a week to move and went into panic, but once I had spoken to Ciaran, everything was made easy for me and far less stressful than I thought having not moved in 28 years I was a bit of a headless chicken! I was really put at ease and the whole process couldn’t have been easier, they even took some old furniture the charity shop wouldn’t take and disposed of it for me. I couldn’t be more pleased with the service they provided it was very professional and the team all worked well together on the day being super fast and efficient."

House move from Bradford, storage and then re-deliver to North Yorkshire.
 
Cost: £3000
 

"Hired George Pickersgill to move my house contents, store and then deliver once the new house had completed.

From the office staff through to the lads who did the heavy lifting, everything went smoothly. Even to the point of once realising the deadline to move out was 2pm, having only found out a couple of hours beforehand, they sent extra men to complete the task.

The second part of the job to deliver to the new address went equally well. Having to limited access, they parked the larger vehicle along the lane and transferred the contents to smaller vehicles.

Very courteous staff, with respect for my family and the contents they were moving. Couldn't fault them."

Move for a family of 4 from a 3 bed semi detached house to a 4 bed 3 storey house.

"The lady who I spoke to in the office was so helpful and friendly think this was Karen. She really explained everything and reassured me during a stressful time.

The 3 lads that came were all so friendly and professional and did an excellent job. They were very careful with all our furniture and ensured that they placed this in the right room and right place.(I can't remember their names sorry!)


The only negative thing was that the van broke down when we got to our new property, and this blocked in 2 of our new neighbours......slightly embarrassing!! Think the clutch had burnt out! The lads stayed calm under pressure though and managed to resolve this!


Overall a really excellent service."

All was well - your team were splendid. I was just son sorry that they were delayed because of a hold up in getting the keys - a problem totally out of my control.
 
Cost: £1000
 

"I was impressed by the professionalism of the whole operation - this was my 10th move and the least stressful.

P.S I can't remember the price - the programmme won't allow me to record that fact in the appropriate box"

Move from 4 bedroom 2 storey semi detached across county to larger property - circa 10 miles.
 
Cost: £1400
 

"All was pre-packed and labelled boxes ahead of the removal by ourselves. We rented another van ourselves to cover goods not covered by the removals firm (mainly plants, birds and other livestock to be moved in parallel). The house was fully empty by lunchtime well in time for exchange. Removals team were punctual, courteous, accommodating and extremely helpful. Communication was excellent. No items were broken and the team worked around us as we cleaned up prior to moving out. Original planning was done via video assessment which was flexible. Would strongly recommend and use again - no suggestions for improvement as great team."

Due to the condition of the new property we had to have a two part move.Half the gear went into store and the other half to deliver on the move date. Two months later the rest was delivered

"The move went according to plan, two part with a period of storage in the middle.
The whole experience was a good one but as we were very experienced with moves the moving company were very complimentary in the way we set things up for them.
The advice would be "be prepared" however when it became apparent we would not be able to move all the gear in one go and carry out the refurbishment of the new property the company were very efficient in arranging storage for half of the contents etc.
Once the house was serviceable the rest of the gear was sent for and again the company were very helpful"

We moved twice - once to rented accomodation and then again 7 months later to our permanent house purchase. Pickersgill kept hold of our belongings including furniture, in storage over that period.
 
Cost: £2000
 

"The collection of our belongings and furniture was split over two days which worked well for us. The company also let us have access to the storage containers when our daughter needed something fairly urgently. They were also able to store some additional items I had to move at short notice. Mostly items were well looked after although a table top was scratched and the base of a wardrobe cracked both sides near the legs, which implies it was not handled with enough care. Delivery from our rented house and delivery from the storage containers was also spread over two days which made settling in easier for us. They took good care of the piano and it still sounds in tune."

George Pickersgill moved us in two installments, one Friday morning then again on a Monday morning. Our glass tables were well wrapped as were our leather chairs and settees. Our items were stored for 6 days prior to delivery at our new house which was 65 miles away.
 
Cost: £1700
 

"We have nothing but praise for George Pickersgill Removals. They served us well at short notice. All items were handled with care. At our new house items were taken to each room as we requested, there was no fuss, all the young men worked diligently and were polite and well experienced in their tasks.
I would highly recommend George Pickersgill to any home mover, their service was outstanding. We received excellent advice from both the office staff and those attending our home."

I used George Pickersgill to help me move from my 2nd floor flat. They took all the items out and then stored the items for 8 months then delivered them to my new house once the sale was complete. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. When I moved into my new property they were able to arrange delivery within 5 days. Storage and delivery costs were reasonable.

"I was very happy with the overall service from the whole team. I would highly recommend George Pickersgill for removal and storage need."

The move was a short distance - about a mile. I moved from an old house with a steep staircaseto a dormer bungalow

"The person I spoke to on the telephone was friendly and helpful. The removal crew arrived at the stated time and worked very hard. The pre-move packing was very efficient. The men were polite, friendly and helpful. The removal was completed well within the estimated time.
Since my move I have also employed staff from the company to move some wardrobes from one location to another. Again they were punctual, helpful and polite. I found that the cost was reasonable and compared favourably with other companies.I would recommend this company."

Office Move from one building to another which had to happen sequentially as we had to get critical teams back up and running without interruption to our service.

"What a delight, proper old fashioned service. They simply couldn't have done more. If more businesses were run in this customer centric way the UK would be World Class."

We contacted George Pickersgill Removals and Storage after a recommendation from a friend. They were helpful and professional from first contact. We moved out of our home and our belongings went into storage for several weeks before we were able to move into our new home.

"The back office team and the removals team were professional, friendly and helpful. We were very pleased with their service levels which we believe represented good value for money. We would have no reservation about using them again"

It was a move from a 3 bed semi to a smaller 2 bed cottage.We were quite well organised with everything sorted and colour coded before the move day which helped everyone.
 
Cost: £570
 

"The pre visit was very professional and the advice given vital to ensure a smooth removal. The quote wasnt the cheapest we got but when we considered who would do the best job for us it was an easy decision to choose Pickersgill.
On the day they turned up on time, in fact there were 2 vans and 4 men, and they just took over everything and it went so smoothly.
They were obviously experts and they did special wrapping of some furniture, TV's and Mirrors and actually finished the loading up in an incredible 2 hours. The delay then was in getting the Solicitors to exchange contracts and then when this happened we all went to our new address.
At the new address again they were in complete control and our colour coding system told them where we wanted everything putting for us. If not sure they would ask us and anything else we needed they provided. Again the unloading took just 2 hours which we though was amazing.
Throughout the removal process Pickersgill were amazing and well worth the money we paid."

Full house move to a large property with lots of different rooms.

"I have used George Pickersgill for storage and 2 house moves.
I have always found them very accommodating.
Everyone involved was always polite and understanding as house moving is always stressful.
I felt the whole team were organised and hard working and we had no problems."

Move from large pre war semi to two bedroom apartment with furniture in storage for circa 3 month

"First time we used Pickergills having ha right previous moves. Delighted with the service (and the banter with the lads) Punctual, polite and careful. Communication with admin staff first class. Move was complicated having moved out of a house and living temporarily in a caravan waiting for new premises to be available so goods had to go in storage (good price). Short notice re moving into new premises and firms employees worked into the evening to obtain suitable ehicle for removal in 48 hours notice. Bank on time as stated. Can not speak to highly about the service"
