"Overall, I think the removals company was good value for money and the costumer service was on point. As soon as I used "compare my move" to get quotes I received a phone call from removals zone swiftly. She assessed the contents for moving and requirements and provided me with a quote promptly. On the day of moving, I received a phone call from the customer services to give an approximate estimation of the removals crew to the nearest half hour. If I had to mention one negative thing, it would be that the quality of the removals crew which was at best amateur. The removals crew did not use the removals blankets to protect a few items of my furniture from the surface of the vehicle from scratches. The use of such blankets is stated will clearly be provided free of charge on the invoice once the deposit has been paid. I have moved every year for the last 6 years, and this is quite a basic thing that I think just needs a bit more of a removals crew training to provide that finesse approach."

"Guys doing the moving are not actually with Cornerstone Removals but they were great! They hire other smaller removal companies to do the actual removal. They were very professional and hard working. Customer service at Cornerstone has much to be desired. They were very good when trying to secure the business obviously but then after that it was just a lot of confusion. Communication was bad and they tried to make me pay more than I agreed on. Overall it went well but dispute over the payment made moving day just a tad more stressful than it shouldve been. "
