I shopped around and chose a mid range 'company', stressing that we were disabled and wouldn't be able to do much. They quoted for a 3 bed house, which is what we had. Nearer the date I realised I would need help packing, so this was added at the cost of £890, on top of the £1600 for the removal. The packer mentioned to me that we had a lot of 'stuff', and he was going to have to bring in more boxes (which we weren't charged extra for). I contacted the removal company and highlighted to them that there would be more stuff to move than they might have thought (nobody came to view for themselves) and his response was 'we won't leave you in the lurch '
Hah! That's exactly what happened. My family have managed to consolidate most of the stuff that was left behind and the 10' X 18' living room is now full of stuff waiting to come up here...
Personally I'm very annoyed with the removal company (promised 3 porters verbally, only 2 turned up, so #2 son rolled his sleeves up and helped, the vehicle was marked with another company's livery very faded, I suspect had been sold and was being used by an independent driver and agency worker, they obviously had no relationship), said all the right things, but over promised and under delivered.
Am I being unreasonable in thinking they quoted for the job and should have completed the move, even if it means sending a 2nd vehicle and crew. Or should I move on and start trying to find a man with a big van to go and collect the rest of my home?
I've done almost all the arrangements up to now, OH has claimed 'brain fog' and left me to it, more on that later
