Local House Move

Shore Porters performed an entire pack, move and unpack from a large 4+ bedroom house in Aberdeen to another property locally. This also included a full two car garage with many heavy tools. Not only was the price competitive the move was carried out in a timely and professional manner. I have moved many times, even internationally and I would Shore Porters top marks! I would not hesitate to use them again..

"The quote was done on-site in a professional manner. The surveyor understood my situation and was willing to listen. I was working to a tight deadline for my move; all of this happening during the Covid outbreak. The crew was professional, helpful and a good bunch of guys. No damage occurred and the care exercised was commendable. I selected Shore Porters based on reputation and the fact that the moving crew is employed by Shore Porters; are not contract hands. Quality was my first consideration and Shore Porters price was competitive."

Having had several part-shipments moved from Aberdeen to London over the last four years, this was a final removal. The London house is still full of unpacked boxes from four years ago! Chris and Mark cheerfully carried some very heavy boxes up two flights of stairs.

"My family has been using Shore Porters since 2014. We have always found them consistently reliable, helpful and obliging. On this last move, at the end of the day we realised that we had overlooked some items that should have been packed up, and Shore Porters were kind enough to come back for them the next morning."

Collection of 6 items from Spalding in Lincolnshire and delivery to Newburgh in Fife..

"Contact was made with Shore Porters after recommendation from a friend after hearing of my disappointed with other Removal companies - where they were either not interested or way-over priced. Shore Porters answered the phone very promptly, was put through to the correct person who took all relevant details, and provided a quote within a short period of time. The Quote was very reasonable priced for the items needing moving, and the timeframe during COVID restrictions was very timely. The team turned up to collect the items on the agreed day, and also delivered the said items on the agreed day. My wife commented on how nice and pleasant the delivery persons were."
