    Hi lovely PIA forum people!

     

    Sorry if this has been asked a squillion times already, I have been trying to trawl through old posts, but have only found one removal company name so far (John Mason).... anyway... would anyone be able to recommend some really reliable international removal companies?

     

    Any companies we should avoid like plague..?

     

    Thanks everyone!

    We used Anglo Pacific and they were great.

     

    Pickfords, Crown, Doree Bonner, PSS Removals, to name a few that get mentioned on here.

     

    Best bet is to Google search, call a few up see if you like the sound of them and get then to quote, then you can play them off one another.

    Robinsons, White & Co there are many others.

     

    Like all things people have had good and bad experiences of most of the companies mentioned. I know Vikkiann had a very bad experience with hers and I am sure that if you PM her she will let you know the name of the company.

    Hi,

     

    We are using Pickords - they were competitive & service so far so good.

    Good luck

    We got arranged for quotes from Pickfords, Robinsons, PSS and Doree Bonner. PSS gave me two reasons why there guy couldn't turn up, both of which would have been believable if they hadn't phoned me twice with two different, conflicting, excuses. The guy from Doree Bonner phoned me about half an hour after the appointment time to say he'd been delayed, and could he come later. Later wasn't possible for us so he said he'd phone back when he had his diary to arrange another time but never did and we never bothed phoning them to arrange another time. Pickfords and Robinsons both turned up at the arranged appointment time, both were friendly and professional and both gave pretty much the same advice and quoted the same volume and similar price.

     

    In the end we decided to go with Robinsons because we liked the sales guy more than the Pickfords one. We were very happy with there service and had no problems with them. We were also very happy with Grace who they use at the Adelaide side.

    Hi, we used John Mason and they were great. Great service and nothing damaged at all. Use someone like Letton Percival for insurance, they will be a lot cheaper than the shipping companies one.

    PSS did the same to us......we had to call them to ask where their Rep was and then they gave an excuse that his car had broke down and he was in an area with no mobile signal!

     

    We liked the guy and quote from Robinsons but also liked the guy and price from White & Co.

     

    As we haven't sold yet we will probably have to get quotes again!!!!!!!
