"Very delighted with the experience.

Lead up was very clear and stress free. The actual move was made all the better with the excellent, polite, and friendly staff; we couldn’t have asked for a better team. Well done and thank you! Would clearly recommend without hesitation."

"I cannot fault this company.

From my first enquiry to taking my items into my new house, they were faultless. Everyone I dealt with from the office staff and estimator of costs on the house visit to the removal crew were professional, polite, efficient and knowledgeable. Communication was fast, thorough, detailed and I can honestly say, they took all the stress out of the move, which I had been dreading. My goods were delivered safely, perfectly packaged with no damage. I had a delivery of boxes before my move which were delivered in good time and I felt I had really clear instructions to re clothing, mattresses etc. My beds were reassembled in record time and everything placed just as I asked. The removal team were so efficient and helpful- I felt completely looked after and would not hesitate to recommend them. I can’t remember the last time I had such exemplary customer service and felt so valued as a customer."

"Everything went smoothly.

Pete and crew did an amazing job moving us. Nothing was too much as they were all friendly and accommodating. There were a couple of items they packed in a couple of boxes themselves which showed to us how professional they were. Overall, very pleased with the efficiency and the guys were very nice as well"

Standard house move but with awkward items of Childrens outside toys that were difficult to get out of the path from Garden. The move was delayed but Shore porters were quick and efficient to book items into storage and work around our circumstances.

"Fantastic from start to finish. Quote was dealt with quickly and considering the time of year , were able to deal with our short deadline. The loading and packing was fantastic with no issues at all the staff being very friendly and helpful. unfortunately our moving in day got pushed back which was extremely stressful. However Shore Porters understood and accommodated the change in dates very well. They were flexible enough to allow me to visit to get some items we needed until we could move in. throughout this period the staff were magnificent and was one less thing to worry about knowing our items were stored and ready to go when needed. when we finally exchanged house, shore porters were ready to go with the new date and had no issues with the short notice Highly recommended and would use them again for a move."."

House move from Bristol to Aberdeenshire.

"The whole process from the very beginning was easy and trouble free. The video appointment was very detailed to enable an accurate quote and schedule for the move. The lorry arrived on time and on schedule. The chaps were very friendly but efficient. Everything was loaded and packed with care. At the other end, again they arrived on time and unloaded everything with care and efficiently. Had no issues with the service at all. Really glad we used a local Scottish company rather than a local one to us in Bristol."
