The guys are superb, did a great job loading and unloading the van. Even helped replumb the washing machine at the new property. My issue was that I was given a "fixed price quote" after completing a survey, which I was led to believe was the final price with no hidden costs! This wasn't the case as once the van was loaded and the keys weren't ready to be picked up (which often happens during completion of the move/purchase) I was then informed of an hourly charge of £70 per hour (discounted rate for 2 vans) waiting time!!!! I was told the charges were on the form I signed before they started, however it was made out the form was simply a receipt for the work, and to be honest it would have been too late to challenge at this point as I had to move! What also frustrated me was that I was charged for two vans and 6 labourers, however once I paid, including the extra charge, the first van was unloaded and the guys then left leaving half the guys I paid for to unload the final van.

Hello and please note everybody, We sent 2 crews and 2 vans (as mentioned) to do the job, During the survey you never mentioned a time for the key collection, otherwise we would have arranged your removal at a more flexible time to avoid anything like this problem occurring. Also in the above complaint you mentioned that we gave you the waiting time at a discounted rate, we reduced the waiting charges from £130 (2 vans and 6 guys wages) to £70, that’s almost discounted 50% of what we usually charge, we had to re-arrange jobs, we had a number of angry/upset customers to deal with as this incident not only affected you but it had a huge impact on the day for our company. The question I need to ask you is what more can our company do? You were informed twice about waiting charges, one during the initial survey and the second time on arrival of the crew on the paperwork they gave you originally, it clearly says “making staff wait or taking extra time incurs extra charges”, you also agreed/signed the document with the terms and conditions listed. Due to these points that have been listed we feel as though this review isn’t fair as we only followed procedures. Thanks Management Via Removals and Storage

They were a good company to deal with. Helpful on the day. Took care to move items carefully. Happy to reallocate items to rooms different from where there had originally been left. Recommended

Kass and his team were professional and helpful from start to finish. A couple of problems arose, (that were out of Via Removals' control), and Kass was quick and efficient in dealing with them. Excellent service - would use again and will refer friends and family.

The team were held up on the day as the previous job had run into difficulties - otherwise it would be 5 stars. Nonetheless, Kas let me know in advance of our allotted time that they were running late and kept me updated regularly. When they arrived, the lads worked non-stop to load the van. There was definitely no slouching. I already intend to use them again in the near future.
