Excellent

All staff friendly, helpful, careful and diligent

Goods delivered one day late due to breakdown

I moved from Newcastle upon Tyne to London in January 2013 with approximately half a Luton van's worth of goods. The removal was conducted as a part load, sharing a truck with other people's goods. KEY DATES Date of contact: 10/Dec/12 Date a Pickfords representative visited my home to assess the...

The so called #1 mover in the UK

Doesn't live up to expectations

Take care before you move home Today is Christmas Day 2004 and it should have been a special day in our new home but thanks to Pickfords it is the worst ever hence the fact I am sitting here typing this page at 1.30pm instead of enjoying our day. On 12th November 2004 we moved just 2 miles using...

I used Allied Pickfords to move from Bristol, UK, to Adelaide, Australia. Pick-up was October 29th 2010 and delivery was early February 2011 (over a month late). I got 5 quotes for the move. Pickfords were the second-dearest (John Masons/Wridgways being the dearest). I searched for online reviews...

Same company at both ends

Large organisation - chaotic

I used Allied Pickfords to move my houshold belongings from Australia to the UK. The price quoted by Pickfords Australia was not the cheapest, but I choosed them because they would be the same company at both ends, and I thought Pickfords are 'careful movers'. (I had a quotation from an...

My husband & I have just moved from Australia to the U.S & used Allied Pickford. We had just been married six months prior & had substantial delicate wedding gifts. We chose Allied even though it was more expensive as we wrongly believed they would be the most capable in moving our things. We...

Like many we chose Pickfords for our move from Scotland to southern England via storage based on reputation and the assurances of their rep. We knew it would not be easy but little did we know how much stress, heartbreak and anger it would generate. Briefly, the all-container pack we paid for...

I have moved from Australia to the UK and back, within Sydney three times and from Sydney to Melbourne - all with companies, such as Grace Removals, which were great. Unfortunately we chose to move from Melbourne to Sydney with Allied Pickfords Australia and it has been a decision for which I...

I moved overseas with Pickfords from Edinburgh to USA, the move was perfect from start to finish, it was a company relocation and we had to have 3 quotes the representative who visited with us was a fountain of knowledge, we chose not based on cost but service, the move coordinator in the office was first class, she spent time explaining the paperwork, insurance and destination services then when we arrived in the US we were contacted by Allied again and all explained, they cleared our goods at customs and delivered everything intact. I could not rate them any higher - They made a stressful live changing move enjoyable and I do not think you can rate them higher than that!!

I used Pickfords to move house in March 2008. The four-man team that appeared looked and behaved like a crowd of ruffians. Although I'd booked the packing service they did not bubble-wrap everything, which resulted in minor damage to several items. When I arrived in the new house I discovered...

I recently moved to Finland from the UK. After having been given a low price and assurance that care would be taken with our musical instruments we accepted Pickfords quote. On the day the instruments were all left unwrapped and put loose into wardrobe boxes with sports equipment. Once things...

We had previously used Allied Pickfords over the past 25 years for about 5 moves across three continents. Very happy until our most recent move In July 2011, in Perth Australia. It is hard to write this review without getting emotional or rude but I can say that it was one of the worst...

I have moved overseas many times and NEVER had such appalling service as provided by Allied Pickfords. I chose them because they said they were pro-active and would guarantee a delivery date in NZ if I paid extra fees which I did. The shipment was 2 weeks late, many pieces of furniture damaged...

We used Allied Pickford to move from NZ to Canada. This is our 3rd international move, and we had never considered using Allied Pickfords in the past. 1st of all our sea container mysteriously ended up in Singapore. It showed up over 4 weeks late. We were told our sea can would be taken from our...

“Pickfords Edinburgh”

published 18/01/2008

local company

no control of the team that shows up.

I chose Pickfords because of their size and their apparent reputation for taking care of their clients goods. However, this move by far was the worst move ever. They didn't cover the carpets as agreed as part of their standard service. They didn't do what they said they were going to do with...

Global Corporation

Expensive and Poor Service

I have travelled substantially across Europe, Asia and Australia and have never had any bother with any removalists. I chose AP as they had offices both in Australia and in the UK. They were the most expensive and it cost in excess of 6,000 pounds (inc insurance) for our trip from the UK to OZ...
