Who am I going to trust with my Dalek collection

AdvantagesReliable, trustworthy and reputable firm

DisadvantagesUsed agency staff on the delivery stage (see op)

"...moons ago. This was with Pickfords and they were fantastic. Nothing went “missing” and not a thing was broken. I REALLY DID MISS HAGGIS MUNCHING There comes a time in every Scotsman’s life when the swirl of the kilt, the call of the bagpipes and the smell of a decent chippie and a haggis supper becomes too much and he recovers from his lapse in marrying an English lass and settling in England and moves back home. Besides over 600miles should ..." Read review

IT TOOK THREE MEN TO REMOVE MY DRAWERS...

AdvantagesPolite, efficient service

DisadvantagesConfusing insurance form

"...The staff in the Pickfords depot informed me, that the van would be with me between 9am and half past, but when mum and I arrived at 8.40am they were already there! I was very impressed by the politeness of Bob, Steve and Jason who were our crew for the day. They were as courteous as they could have possibly been, shaking hands to greet us, telling us their names, and letting us know exactly what they would be doing, whilst still being able to ..."

Make moving easy with Pickfords

AdvantagesPolite, Prompt, Competitive, Careful

DisadvantagesAdditonal items expensive

"...from a few firms but Pickfords were the only ones who offered to come out and visit the house in order to give an accurate quotation. Initially they weren’t the cheapest quote but when I phoned to say that obviously moving is an expensive time and our decision on who to use would be based on removal price they managed to shave a substantial amount off the price. I was told that the removals van would arrive at 9am on the moving day. Moving day ..." Read review

Sounded like great deal. Results are abysmal!

AdvantagesAverage quote, prompt delivery of removal boxes. Friendly, efficient employees delivering.

DisadvantagesMay as well have been burgled! £500 out of pocket for damaged items. Disgusting customer service

"...a year ago we payed Pickfords a good bunch of money to move from Northern Ireland to Cornwall. Initially, we were quite impressed. Reasonably competitive quote, removal boxes arrived promptly, and Pickfords were able to adjust the removal date according to the delays we experienced due to the delayed sale of our old house, as well as the purchase of the new home. We decided to pay an additional amount to have fragile items transported to our new ..." Read review

Appalling experience with Allied Pickford.

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesMany

"International move. AP were supposed to provide full packing/moving/unpacking/insurance. Men arrived 3 hours late. Couldn't contact anyone who would tell us what was going on. When men did arrive we were given no reasons and they had no packing boxes/materials so they had to go off again to get them. We wondered if we'd ever see them again. Sloppy packing - items not properly wrapped; clothes thrown into boxes. At the destination the crate containing ..." Read review
