    Excellent front-end interaction in person and on phone. Good communication and flexibility approaching the day. Competitively priced. The demeanour of the removal chaps was excellent, friendly, helpful however they damaged several items, they did not bring the necessary packing materials for delicate objects (pictures) that I had paid for and they did not bring the tools (sack trolley etc) that they needed (and knew they needed) before they arrived for the job. There has been no follow up from the office.

    Watch for breakages!!

    All very happy and jovial on the phone and even happier to take cash but when it comes down to it if your stuff gets broken 'it was an accident'.

    The 'inclusive' insurance has a £250 excess and a max payout of something like £50 per item though apparently the optional insurance which I was never offered might have covered it.

    It was a sad ending to what, until I found the breakages, had been a fairly well executed move apart from a row with them over whether they were going to move the sofas!!

    It was a shame that in the end they just didn't seem to care.

    I went with this company as I wanted to move on a Friday and they promised they could do this. Other companies were up to £150 cheaper but could not give the day I wanted. Unfortunately the 'van broke down' so I wasn't able to move on the day and had to lose a days' holiday. Also despite having moved over 30 times before with no more than a single braekage I lost all my coffee cups, two mortars, a decanter, a bowl and a plate in a single crate which think was dropped, and the foot off my computer. not that impressed really.

    The removal team were excellent -- friendly, efficient and relaxed. They packed well and quickly. Unfortunately a number of items were left behind by accident, which meant I had to make two 180-mile trips to collect them myself. And despite quoting us to move a piano (with a detailed description of the somewhat tricky mode of entry into the house), they were unable to move it in. Head Office instructed them not to do it, so they left it in the narrow entrance hallway, almost completely blocking entrance / exit. It stayed there for a WEEK! Repeated phone calls to the Office produced no action, and the Office eventually refused to talk to me, saying they were reviewing telephone call recordings to see whether or not I was telling the truth when I said I had given them all the necessary details. I needed a receipt to claim some of the cost back from my employer, and had to email THREE TIMES before they sent it. I have put our legal action on hold because I have been promised a full email response to my detailed complaints today, but it has yet to appear. In sort, excellent removal team, seriously deficient planning and EXECRABLE customer service. Don't touch them with a barge-pole.

    The customer service for quotation and booking was first class. Sadly it went rapidly down hill from there.
    I paid city moves to pack for me and this felt rushed and no care was taken to pack delicate items carefully. I expected casualties from the move but they didn’t even bother to wrap my perfume bottles or protect them in anyway. The breakages could have been avoided. They didn’t actually completely pack the house but I thought they would complete it the next day. The next day was moving day and again the whole process felt rushed as the staff wanted to finish early. They managed to scuff both of my leather sofas and pierce the leather on my tv bed. All of this damage could have been avoided by using a blanket for protection. The staff were fairly polite but lacking care. They left my old house with items in and it took me 3 car loads extra to completely empty the house. I paid for a complete house move not a partial one.
    Once unpacked I phoned city moves to collect the empty boxes. The staff I spoke to there were friendly and professional. It’s such a pity I can’t say the same about the man who eventually collected the boxes. He was rude and didn’t even say goodbye!

    They should arrive at my place at 4pm, but they came earlier at 10 am, and just left my boxes and piano outside the reception. It should be door to door service, I had to ask somebody else to help me carry me boxes and piano to third floor. After that, I complained to customer services, they said they will check phone recordings and emails etc, and emailed me about the results later. However, I haven’t heard back from them until now. I won’t recommend the company, not on time, bad service, and not value.

    Very overpriced and not the service I asked for. I requested help with packing as I suffer from depression but ended up doing a lot of the packing on the day. Some of my furniture got damaged but I was pressed to tick boxes on the form when I’d moved to say no damage done - hence no recommence. The movers didn’t know about securing bolts for washing machines, and just seemed to want to get the job done as fast as possible. I had funding from SSAFA for the move but also had to pay £30 cash from my disability benefits. What should have been a helpful, supportive and stress free process was anything but!

    We were supposed to have everything packed the day before and then move the next day, had even laid out plans to this effect.

    Instead, we were phoned the morning that things were supposed to be packed and told they would do it all in one day, cue massive stress, anxiety and panic attacks.

    Everything was rushed and badly packed with several books and other personal effects damaged, seemingly thrown at the cardboard boxes rather than professionally packed.

    Using a company to assist in the move was supposed to make it less stressful, yet because of them I suffered from quite extreme panic attacks including hyperventilating.

    Awful experience with this company on the removal of my property into storage and then the removal out of storage to my new home. Lateness on both occasions, multiple damages, not enough hanging clothes hangers and a forgotten motorbike (despite being flagged at the quotation stage), not to mention a huge hike in the quotation. Extremely poor customer service and I will urge anyone I know to use a different company.
