    Very good moving from my address but not so good on arrival at my new one. Even though most items had where they should go on them we found many things in all different places including to indoor plants left out in the garden. Some items we had to move ourselves days later. It's not always possible to see where everything is going as you are to busy elsewhere. I got the impression they couldn't wait to leave. The following morning we found a broom a bag of rubbish left by our front door which they realised just as they were leaving was ours chucked outside. They started well, shame they didn't follow it through.

    Bournes of Bournes Moves replied:
    Hi Elizabeth, thank you so much for taking the time to leave some feedback. We're really sorry to hear that the delivery side of your move experience didn't run as smoothly as we would all expect. We appreciate you letting us know and will speak to the crew involved to understand what went wrong and to do some further training to try and stop this happening again in future. Thanks again and best wishes for your new home!

    Would not recommend. Made moving day stressful. Didn't connect washing machine despite paying additional £30 for this. Work shy men!
