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: 90%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 92%
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.

Contents of a 4 bedroom house were packed and moved to a 3 bedroom house approx 13 miles away packing took place on a Tuesday actual move took place on Thursday.
 
Cost: £1495

"The team of packers were efficient and very polite and helpful. We had lived in our house for over 38 years so it was an emotional experience. The patience and good humour of the team made everything go smoothly. The loading and unpacking of the van all ran to schedule and without any problems. Neighbours had recommended Hadley & Ottaway to us and we will certainly recommend them to others. "

Customer Review
 
Downsizing after 40 years. Had worked and extended property over those years. Completely changing its size and appearance. A very difficult decision to make the move but considered it necessary before we become "Too old"!! Leaving our very personal unique family home was hard but helped by "The team" from H and O!
 
Cost: £1194

"The removal team were absolutely brilliant. They were extremely helpful in all aspects. They were thoughtful, efficient, well organized and worked very well as a team.
It was an extremely stressful day but their support was second to none. Even the lively "Banter" between the team members made the whole experience much better than we had anticipated.
Extremely hectic day but many, many thanks to the Hadley & Ottaway team. "

"I want to say these men were machines' because they were so efficient and fast as well as being organized but I dont think 'machine' is correct as they are thoroughly decent gentlemen who worked so hard, were so thoughtful and well manner and nothing was too much trouble. They actually made our move completely stress free. We think they were beyond brilliant. "
