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: 95%
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: 94%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 86%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 91%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 93%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 85%
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.

Moving from 2 storey 5 bed to bungalow style house. 50 miles.
Packers arrived day before. Very thorough and quick and efficient. Following day we moved.
 
Cost: £1554

"Moving house isn't exactly a walk in the park however Alex, Ross, Jordan and Stephen R made the whole event seamless.

Whilst they packed and loaded I made copious tea and bacon rolls. Team work. If I ever move again I will be contacting them. "

20 miles 3 medium sized vans, contents of a 5 bedroomed house to a smaller house partly furnished.

Significant challenge heavy rain; finding space for everything.
 
Cost: £3598

"The protections I has shown in the handbook did not happen. Everything came.

The men were polite. There were however too many of them so items came in too fast for me to give proper instructions.

They did not ask if there were problems

They were planning to drive away without replacing the front door.

I would not recommend this firm. When I pointed out damages on the day of the move, I was told it was the fault of the furniture.

When I had had time to examine things, which took longer than 7 days because of the chaos, I told the removals firm about damage while acknowledging that I could not make a claim. However, there was not a hint of an apology. Poor manners. "
