    Our removal company which we had previously booked let us down the day before we were due to move. Skymovers pulled out all the stops to fit us into their busy schedule at very short notice. The team who moved us were great. They arrived on time, finished within the allotted time frame and put everything in the correct rooms. Even the plant pots. Highly recommended.

    The lads were absolutely brilliant, very eager to help and they looked after our stuff.
    The booking and confirmation process was not so clear. When you move you really need as little stress as possible so a firm, precise written confirmation that they are going to turn up, would have eased any anxiety!

    The removal men were polite, hard working and careful. We moved from Nottingham to Bournemouth and they drove down, moved us in and drove back afterwards. Nothing was too much trouble. I had to keep chasing the office for a time when they would come to load the lorries on the day before, but in the end, all went well.

    Guys seemed a little bit disinterested on the morning of the move, but it was a Monday morning after all!!
    Did a good job of emptying the storage units and loading up the vans, and made good time on the journey through to our new house.
    As the day wore on the teams work started to get a little sloppy and some damage was incurred when moving pieces up the stairwell, both to the walls, banisters and some of the pieces themselves.
    All told the job took a total of 10 hours which seems maybe just a tad on the long side.
    All in all I would give a mark of 6.5 out of 10

    The team that arrived on our moving day were excellent and hard working.
    The quote we had was also really competitive which is why we went with sky movers.
    The downside is the customer service and pre/post communications. Issues we had with there were:
    - inventory and detailed photos sent of the house sent to Sky movers, yet the removal team who turned up arrived with no specialist equipment to cope with the upright piano I had specifically mentioned in emails and calls. Result was damage to the piano and to the house.
    - inentory sent and quote accepted as required which should have resulted in our moving day being booked in. Instead I had to email and call to chase this up when I realised 2 days before the move they still hadn't replied.
    - on the day only arrived at 10.30. I had to call to find out where they were instead of customer service being proactive and explaining the delay to help reduce moving day stress!
    - on the day, damage details texted to main contact immediately on occuring, then reported on the phone at end of the day and also included in emails since. No replies or contact since to say how they fix the damage.

    Great initial communication and service, very friendly and helpful when visited to do an initial quote. Great price, especially as we booked last minute. However, we were disappointed with the service afterwards when we reported they had ripped the vinyl floor in the kitchen. Landlord asked them to come and fix it, they tried to make tenants do it and weren't willing to pay compensation. Disappointing after an otherwise positive experience.

    The guys moving were really good guys but we did not fully complete the move.
    Ended up sending the guys away at 03:30 in the morning.
    Next day released the wardrobes that were taken apart were broken and could not be reassembled, other items also broken.
    Wardrobes alone cost me over £1000!!!!

    Samuel the sales man pretended to make a booking for what appeared to be survey but the surveyor never turned up.
    I called him to let him know before end of day but he assured me that the guys were professionals, " they will wrap your delicate furniture including glass".
    They arrived one hour late at 3pm by the time they finished dismantling the 2 beds and a wardrobe, it was already 8pm.
    They used my car to kick start theirs, it failed, they were stuck for over an hour.
    They damaged my chest of drawers while moving, there is big crack at the top. They damaged two door frames.
    The wardrobe does not close properly. They put the rail at the top instead of the bottom of the wardrobe.
    They demanded the money right away. I was promised to pay £220 as per qoute for 5 house. I was only moving 4 doors down the road.
    In the end they demanded £350 by somebody else who said was Samuel's father.
    I explained my issues before I paid him of wish he assured me that samuel will sort out the insurance for any damages.
    He said, he has no access to company emails as he is in accounts.
    I have called samuel who has gone quiet. After the so called father collected the money.

    I won’t be recommending them or using this company again!!! I contacted sky movers on the day before we were due to move house through compare my move!! I read the reviews and everything looked ok!! I was quoted 695.00 to move house all in and when I asked if the vans would be big enough was told not to worry they would go back for items and it would be all in with the price!! On the day the lads who helped us move house were fantastic. We had moved 2 Luton van loads and needed to go back for half a load which was in the garage !! Inbetween the last load coming back management rang me a couple of times and said the price had gone up another two hundred I had to pay this as they still had my items in there van!! I informed the management that I wasn’t happy but they continue to ignore my phone calls etc to try and sort this!!Please get everything from them in writing before you agree to take them on. Make sure you have the quotes in writing!!! They said they had emailed it through but hadn’t done so.

    Absolutely awful. Don't use this company. Van was over an hour late resulting in us paying a penalty for late key handover. Was impossible to get in touch with anyone on the day. Carpets had to be cleaned because they did not lay a protector as promised and our hardwood furniture now has deep scratches in it from the move. They went off for their lunch half way through despite it not being lunch time and them only having worked for under an hour (after being an hour late). Nobody from Sky Movers has responded to my complaint from weeks ago. Shocking service. Do not use if you value your possessions.

    Initially very good. Pre-move visit booked for and a competitive price offered which we were happy with and so a deposit paid.
    On the day of the move, Skymovers were 90mins late in their arrival. Having booked two men, a single employee arrived in a van that had a hole in the roof, had a tail lift that did not lower and a rear roller shutter that was broken. All on the wettest day of the year.
    I spoke with Sam, explaining I was concerned with several H&S issues and the general poor quality of service received on what for anyone moving house is an incredibly stressful day. The solution suggested to me I considered to be unreasonable and as such, I sent the Skymovers driver and his van that was unfit for purpose away.
    Through using Skymovers my house move was significantly delayed. Subsequently, despite leaving several messages with Ciaran, our initial point of contact, I am still awaiting to receive my deposit back and as such in the process of preparing to recover the money through the small claims court.

    If I could give a minus 100 rating I would. I’ve had a HORRIFIC experience with this company. DO NOT USE THEM!!!
    Removal men arrived with two small vans not the one big van we paid for. This resulted in them cramming the first one full.
    Removers badly damaged an antique trunk of mine and then when bringing in dismantled bed they dropped it and splintered the wood! Irreparably broken!
    This happened 2 months ago. I’m 8 months pregnant and as I paid for insurance I hoped it would be sorted swiftly. The managers have dodged my calls and emails, refused to get back to me and have treated me appallingly. I’ve had to get advice from trading standards and they’ve told me to take them to a smalls claim court.
    I REPEAT DO NOT USE - I can’t believe how unprofessional and uncourteous they have been.
