Moving my brother- in -laws stuff from Southern Ireland to Stonehaven! He has a lot!!!

"The guys were fantastic - especially as we couldn’t even give them a cup of tea in Ireland as everything was packed! Unloading in Stonehaven could have been nerve wracking but went so smoothly - I couldn’t believe it. Fantasy service throughout- and Kerrie - in the office - was an absolute angel! Fantastic staff, fantastic service- couldn’t recommend highly enough"

House move

Shore Porters helped us to move my elderly mother from her home of more than 50 years to a new retirement apartment. The move included some good quality antiques which have been in the family for years, and we asked for a full packing service. We needed to put the contents of her home into storage for a few days to allow for the sale of her house and the purchase of her apartment to be completed. Our original removal and delivery dates had to be postponed for a fortnight because of delays completing the sale of her house.

"We chose them because they were very friendly and responsive - easy to reach by telephone and by email - and they gave us a good value quote in comparison with other companies that we had approached. They dealt with uncertainty about the removal dates and changes forced on us by the selling process in a reassuring and understanding way. The actual removal went very well. The crew were on time and were kind and friendly to Mum, while completing the job quickly and without any breakages. We asked for a packing service with special attention for some antiques and everything was carefully handled - and arrived in perfect condition! Especially appreciated was the 'after sales' service of picking up the packaging materials, arranged with a simple phone call and done within a couple of hours of making the call. This made all the difference in getting the apartment into a liveable state and helping Mum to settle in. Everyone that we've dealt with from the office staff, to the surveyor, to the removals crew and the guys that came to take the empty boxes away has been friendly, efficient and gone out of their way to care about us and our needs. Huge thanks"

Removal from England to Aberdeen
reviewed May 2023

Our move was from south of England to Aberdeen. We wanted a dedicated van so that we could be specific about the date, as we were not living at the south of England property. Five days would be needed , so a van had to be available all week. An ever moving (later) Exchange Date and Completion Date, plus several Public Holidays in April and May, meant that scheduling by Shore Porters, was quite demanding. We had quotes from a well known UK company and from a local south of England company. Shore Porters had the most suitable quote and performed the move extremely well..

"Kerrie Farman was our main point of contact, and she was excellent, and do helpful. We can highly recommend her as the main point of contact. Also Craig …… in the office who supplied more technical logistics aspects. Driver of the 10m van team was Nicky, and Matthew. Both excellent. The whole move went really well Thank you to them all"

Home Removal

One bedroom ground floor flat to a two bedroom bungalow.

"The team of three arrived on time and worked nonstop until the lorry was loaded and all our stuff was gone. They worked equally hard in reverse at the delivery end placing all our effects in the required room, she’d, or garden space. We found no fault and we’re so impressed with the work, attitude, and helpfulness of them all."

Skye to Inverurie Removal
reviewed May 2023

I moved from Skye to Inverurie. Access to my house in Skye is not the easiest and Shore Porters were aware of this. The move was handled very well throughout the whole process..

"I had used Shore Porters previously when I moved from Greater London to Skye back in 2002. At that time I took quotes from two other companies but chose Shore Porters, even though they were not the cheapest but my family had previous experience of the firm many years ago. For the move from Skye to Inverurie I got a quote from Shore Porters which I thought was competitive so did not bother to contact other firms. From the initial contact with the sales department (Kerrie and then Craig), the surveyor video call and the actual move I could not fault the service provided. I think it is important that the team are not changed during the removal. Dealing with the same people over a three day period is very reassuring. I understand that for logistical reasons this may not always be possible but I was fortunate to have the same people over the three days. I found Ian and Martin to be friendly and professional throughout the move.."
