4 Longcliffe Path, Watford, WD19 7PH
A family-owned business with years of experience in the industry, Cornerstone Removals are a professional, passionate removals company based in Watford.
"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. "

It was a very long day for us the waiting was long with no communication from the removals company we had to keep calling and texting.at some point we thought we had been scummed.

When only 2 trucks arrived and i knew straight away that all our goods are not going to fit in. I reported that to the office but they said there will be extra charges. They said they have made a mistake but i still have to pay. Workers on that day was great but didn't finish unloading till 10 o'clock at night. I have to hire another truck to finish the move and drive myself.As it was quite late so company charged me for late finish, no fault of me, but costed me extra.I was not happy and got really frustrated. I justed wanted them to offload and go.I will not fully recommend this company. If yiu use them then be cautious as there will be extra charges at the end.Not good experience.I end up paying for a late finishing charges and cost of hiring the truck.No go compnay"
