House move in DD10

Our move was very last minute and after contacting all our local companies who couldn’t help us we tried further afield and were delighted to find Shore Porters could assist..

"Excellent service from start to finish. Professional helpful and obliging. The office staff were superb, so very professional, helpful and obliging, as we were moving in just a few days they did a video call to price the job which was reasonable and competitive. It was a large move with some very large and large heavy pieces of antique furniture including a grandfather clock, yet all were moved safely and at ease by a lovely crew. They completed the move very quickly and efficiently. We were delighted with their service and they were also very reasonably priced. We would definitely use them again and strongly recommend them.."

Removal & Storage

We were moving from a large house in Scotland to a small house in England so there were two different systems happening. This in turn caused timing problems for us. Shoreporters made arrangements for our items to be stored in Aberdeen until a final date was agreed. They also offered dates where the same team would be available to move us into our new home. Shoreporters did everything they could to support us.

"Shoreporters were very helpful, professional went out of their way to help with our difficult and ever changing entry date. The office team were extremely supportive and understanding and kept us up to date with the changes. A positive team which is what you need at this difficult and stressful time. Once we were had emptied all the boxes they collected them and all the excess paper. I would recommend them to anyone"

Move from England to Scotland

The move was from England to Scotland. the property we moved from was over 3 floors and there was a double garage. There were a lot of personal effects and these had to be collected from several places with a lot of climbing of stairs. On the arrival side, the top floor was accessed by a very narrow set of stairs and difficult to carry itmes up.

"The crew arrived on time and behaved in an exemplary manner. All items were shipped to Scotland over a period of 3 days and arrived in excellent conditions - nothing got broken. The mover team was courtious and polity, asking questions when needed and moving on when they were certain of what was required. Overall we are very happy with the move."
