Moved from Birmingham to Aberdeen, pick up by removals firm was on a return trip from London so it suited them from a logistics perspective..

"The guys in the office were very good at keeping in contact and updating the arrival times. When the packers arrived they were very efficient and friendly. Everything arrived at the destination in one piece! Later, when we managed to unpack all the boxes they came by and collected the empties. Overall, very satisfied with the service."

Move from Aberdeen to rural North East England, tricky entry up narrow steep stone steps to new house.

"They were all wonderful! They all worked non-stop, and were always cheery and uncomplaining despite the challenge for Craig and Mathew of carrying heavy furniture up steep steps, managing to shoehorn through narrow doors and up narrow stairs. Packing was carefully done. I truly admire their skills, professionalism and stamina. Couldn't have asked for a nicer, kinder Crew to help me move house."

Move from a two bedroom terraced house to a two bedroom 1st floor flat. The flat is in a retirement complex, there is a lift in the building but removal companies, furniture delivery companies etc, are not permitted to use the lift.

"From obtaining the initial quotation right through to the actual packing up and delivery to the new location I felt assured that the company would do a good job. All the staff I was in contact with were helpful, understanding and answered any concerns/questions I had."

As soon as you know you are moving, call Shore Porters and ask for a representative to call round.  We will quickly assess your requirements and establish a timescale, costs, special arrangements, etc.  We do not advise waiting until you have a moving date because it is important that you know costs at the earliest opportunity so that you can budget for your move.  Moving dates can be arranged with us later once they are confirmed. See our domestic removals or international removals pre-move survey sections for more details.

Of course, and we are delighted to help. Our free, no-obligation survey and quotation will be tailored to your individual needs and budget. For example, Shore Porters can pack everything, only breakables or nothing (providing you with boxes to pack yourself) – it’s your choice. We can also advise on specialist packing of items such as antiques, pictures and objects of sentimental value.

Shore Porters has an excellent reputation for providing a first-class service. However, that doesn’t mean we charge the most expensive fees! With the free, no-obligations assessment available from our experienced team, your quote will always be tailored to your needs and budget. And if you can be flexible about your moving date, we can even advise on further cost-saving solutions, such as sharing the load with other customers going your way.

Shore Porters, of course – to anywhere in the world. Our global network of trusted agents work to our own high standards and so you can be assured that you will always be in safe and experienced hands.
