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.

The move was carried out over three days. The first day was to clear the contents of a craft room on a second floor. Despite a great number of boxes and furniture the team did a great job.

Customer Review
 
From Bromley to Norwich, packing on Day1, and move day 2. We had nearly 100 pots from the garden, most with plants in them, source extremely heavy. There was a six-day delay between completion in Branley (SE London) and completion in Norwich, so everything (two lorry loads and a Luton) had to go into storage, which is included in the cost below.
 
Cost: £5101

"The team were brilliant and worked incredibly hard on the two hottest days of the year. The team leader kept everyone focused, in a pleasant way, and was on excellent role model. They packed for us and did this incredibly efficiently, without fuss. The times of arrival they gave us, for the move and picking up the boxes, were accurate, which was helpful. Would definitely recommend. "

Almost as for as you can travel in England. From an awkward form house to a smaller home. Fiddly and two homes into one.
 

"I can't emphasis strongly enough the professionalism of the crew from the first hello to the final box they were all both patient and highly efficient. The contrast with prior experiences with other companies is frankly subline.
Utterly brilliant"
