      Really helpful, professional and responsive. We had an excellent removal with 1st Movers. Great comms and a very competitive price. Highly recommended!

      I had a seamless relocation from Edinburgh to Oxford, all thanks to Sarah and the exceptional team. The movers handled my belongings with care, communicated reliably, and delivered promptly. Their friendly and courteous service was commendable. … More I highly recommend 1st Movers, particularly with Sarah at the helm, for a hassle-free moving experience.

A gentleman named Alan helped with the move on the day of collection - friendly, professional and also kept me informed via text (as my train from point A to B was cancelled, I was running late to the delivery).

    • Avatar Cathy Wr ★★★★★ 2 years ago
      They Helped us move home from Glasgow to London. We had been let down by another company and 1st Movers agreed to take on the job at fairly short notice. The price was great, better than the other company. Everyone I met/dealt with was … More very helpful and pleasant. My only gripe would be that I would’ve liked to have known precise ish timings a few days in advance so we could make firm plans. On the day itself we were just kind of on standby not sure when they would arrive. Also I would’ve liked a written contract outlining everything, including insurance info/schedule etc. But It wasn’t a deal breaker, just constructive criticism. I’d definitely use them again.

I was completely desperate when I called 1st Movers Edinburgh but Sarah was extremely kind and helpful; … More she explained everything to me and she helped me to arrange the payment. The collection was arranged for the day after my call and the boxes were at my home the day after that. After the delivery, Sarah called me to confirm that everything was OK. I would also like to mention how organised everything was. Firstly, I had very specific instructions (for example, I had requested for the drivers to call me before attempting collection and delivery) and they were followed meticulously.

      AVOID AT ALL COSTS!We have had an absolutely terrible experience with 1st Movers. They did not send a big enough van despite extensive explanations of the square footage and contents of our house (and two of their guys coming to the house … More to do another partial load who saw inside it!) so we had to pay £450 in storage. They were very late arriving at the other end, there was supposed to be two men but only one was there so my husband had to unload himself in the rain. They also badly damaged a table and broke two lamps which I am still trying to get them to pay me back for more than two months later, they are not replying. Some of our furniture we have never found the screws to! Avoid at all costs.

      If you are moving house, pay the money and go with a reputable and established company. I ran my details through a search engine, 1st movers came up one of the cheapest at around £150 and I saw the good reviews. Although I was quoted a … More fixed price, I was emailed and told that I couldn’t have this, only an hourly rate of £70. Something to do with me not being able to give a detailed inventory weeks in advance, even though the fixed price quote was based on a 3 bed flat (I didn’t have much furniture). They turned up 3.5 hours late. I was contacted and given an array of excuses including “they were trying to call you, you gave us the wrong phone number” (they were calling me on it!) and continuously told for 3 hours that they were “15 minutes away”.The two guys were friendly enough but I felt that the whole thing wasn’t very time efficient and took 4 hours, costing me £280 (plus tip) when I was originally quoted £150. I also don’t expect to be doing the lifting myself when I’m being charged £70 an hour!Turns out these two guys own the van themselves and run their own business on Anyvan at £35 an hour... HALF of what I was being charged. It also transpired that 1st movers had contacted them around 11am to do the job. I question the whole set up really, and most importantly, whether there’s correct insurance in place, as it doesn’t seem to be an actual company with a brand etc.** edit to respond to owners message ***It was an already packed up 3 bedroom flat, not house. I lived there alone with minimal furniture (it was a furnished rental), so it was mostly boxes.Your reason for the 3 hour delay is different from the varying ones you offered on the day.I mention time efficiency because the guys didn’t appear very organised. One guy seemed to be doing most of the work and they spent an amount of time smoking, eating fruit, chatting on the phone and standing around complaining about items that weren’t going to fit (then the item fitting in anyway). When I’m being charged £70 an hour, of course I’m going to be conscious of that. In the last three years I have moved six times, between three countries and I know what to expect from a decent moving company. Please don’t make out like this is a case of ‘unrealistic expectations’ on my part!

      They were absolutely superb - I highly recommend them.They were very fast and effective in moving all the household items, and they were friendly and pleasant throughout as well. They took excellent care of ensuring that nothing was damaged. … More If I move again, I will be using their services again.

      Very efficient, reliable and quick to respond to emails etc. They were very punctual and my grand piano was perfectly looked after. I was kept informed throughout the process. And all at a very good price.

      These movers are excellent. They could not have put in more effort or been more considerate.They did everything I expected and went the extra mile to help in every way they could, which made a huge difference as I have a physical disability … More and could not organise things in the way I would have wanted.I thoroughly recommend them, and believe me I've had a lot of experience of movers, both international and local. In addition, their prices are extremely reasonable.

      Great local company, the movers turned up early and done the job really quickly at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

      Turned up exactly on time. Carefully, courteously and quickly did my small office move in little more than an hour all told. Thank you.

      Really great!! The movers were super nice and did a great job. They were also quick and careful. Definitely recommend.Only point of critique is that I told them from the start that I'm hard to reach via phone and to write me emails … More but they kept calling, haha.

      The two removal guys turned up a few minutes early, which was very much appreciated. They were both friendly, courteous and very hard-working. I could tell immediately that they were going to be careful with my belongings. They didn't … More complain once about having to lug all my things up to my third-floor flat and they did the job extremely quickly. I was expecting this to be a stressful day, but it went very smoothly, thanks to the two guys. I would highly recommend the company -which was also reasonably priced compared to two other quotes.

      Very handy. I had one removal man helping me and we managed to pack and unload his van (inc. 20min drive) in no time at all. Made the move a stress free day.
