Second move, amazing again…

This is the second time I have used Bishop’s Move, first time was from London to Henley this was slightly longer, a three day move up to Lancashire. Both times I had the full packing service. The team were excellent again! Polite, friendly, efficient. They took great care of everything, looked after all my artwork, fragile items and delicate, hard to pack items. It was a real pleasure having the team around, great to chat to as well as being full of advice. I couldn’t recommend them more highly!

Cigarette ends left on the path right outside my house as well as bits of their lunch. They moved the people next door (Whatman Road, SE23 1EY) and parked outside our house. Really weird attitude they can, kept on looking into our front room! That I don't mind but what made them think it was ok to discard all their cigarette ends all over the public path I'm not sure. Bad attitude workers, I would personally never use them

If I could give zero it would be that this company is carrying out removals on behalf of North lanarkshire council at Dundyvan Gardens in Coatbridge which is a sheltered housing accommodation they are the most rude inept people to deal with and do not trust them one little bit with your goods as they have caused over £1500.00 of damages to my father furniture they broken his recliner also ripped all his 2 seater leather couch by dragging it through door ways broken chest of drawers and didnt even tell anyone also they left a blind and death man surrounded in boxes furniture and thought this was OK they are a total disgrace of a company they are that bad I wouldn't trust them to pack or move anything. At all!

Excellent

My experience with Bishop's Move has been really great. This is in large part thanks to the help and assistance I received from Nikola throughout the whole process. Nikola's professionalism, care, kindness and attention has made the whole process of moving home, which is known to be particularly stressful, much more pleasant and manageable. I would recommend Bishop's Move to any of my friends for this very reason. And I will! The guys that were on site on the day were also very professional. Thank you Bishop's move for doing such a great job. Deborah

A challenge delivered brilliantly.

A challenge delivered brilliantly.It was a pleasure working with Sharon, and then Steve and Rodney moving 100cum of house contents from the mountains above Nice back to the UK. On schedule, with good communication, adaptable, hard working, polite and friendly, nothing was a problem that could not be resolved, working with care and efficientcey, our move went more smoothly than I thought possible. A complex move with everything being shuttled down the mountains, it could not have been done better.I would recommend Bishops Move to everyone.

In very good hands

Bishop's Move was excellent in looking after our international move from Oregon, USA to the UK even in these difficult international shipping times. Sharon kept on top of everything and provided updates and information very quickly. She sorted any issues without fuss and we felt in very good hands. We will definitely use them again for our next move.

Very impressed with the service from start to finish. My elderly mother-in-law, who was moving, was treated with respect and the removal men went out of their way to make her feel relaxed about the move. Everything was done very efficiently and nothing was too much trouble.Would definitely recommend Bishop's Move to family and friends.

Avoid

(Yes, I have emailed Bishopsmove and they have not resolved the matter.) DO NOT USE. High price, very poor service. Unprofessional, sloppy. Many items put loose in their van, unboxed and unwrapped. (THEY provided photographic evidence.) They missed a whole group of items. Items got delivered by a man with a van who did not even know they were from Bishopsmove.

Absolutely appalling

Absolutely appalling! Never ever use this company! We had our house flood and the insurance assigned Bishops Move to remove our goods. They broke 3 of our wardrobes, one chest of draws, damaged our sofa and smashed a mirror. They refuse to cover the furniture as there insurance does not cover Ikea furniture... The sofa (which was 18 months old) they claim was fair wear and tear even though its clear they had something heavy sat on it causing all the padding to sink.That is just the furniture. Our belongigns were even worse. They threw canvas photos in a box with my daughters toys, did not wrap anything, clothes screwwed into balls and thrown into boxes... i could keep going. NEVER EVER use this company!

Finally, a moving company that does actually take the stress out of moving.

Very highly recommend Bishop’s Move. After experiencing issues with two other moving companies I was relieved and happy after a family friend recommended them to me. He had specifically referred me to Sharon, who did a super job managing my entire move at short notice, and during the pandemic at that. She is knowledgable, efficient and helpful and I can say that my move would not have been as smooth as it was had it not been for her and Bishop’s Move.

Absolutely dreadful

What a total con this company is. Give them my removal and they agreed to supply 2 vans at 0930hrs on move day. After many frantic calls, ONE van arrived at 11am with 3 disinterested guys who didn’t cover flooring, didn’t wrap or protect anything. Had to summons help from a friend with a pickup as my buyers arrived and we were no where emptied. Loads of items smashed, dropped and a new mattress plonked on the road with no cover. Garden electrical items dumped in the garden as it was now dark. Rude staff in the office giving loads of false promises and blatant lies as to what was going on. They then had the cheek to threaten me with the small claims court over the balance owed.Tread carefully using this company , it will come back to haunt you on removal day

Absolutely Faultless......

This is a very competitive market and I found that there are many unscrupulous removal firms that are happy to quote low and then add extra costs prior to delivering. Save yourself those worries and use Bishops Move. The video survey was very straight forward inspire of us not taking all aour furniture and possessions with us. The quote was mid range. The boxes arrived the day after I accepted the quote. And on the day of the move, Jack & Adi arrived on time and performed very professionally. Delivering our stuff the next day they were again faultless. I highly recommend BM and will use them again.

our move from the UK to France

All the people who assisted in our move to France were great. From our first contact of the office, the professional team answered all our questions especially as it was all new with rules changing frequently since Brexit. The logistics were arranged and the team who packed our house in the UK, took care of all our belongings, which meant they arrived in France undamaged. Nothing was to much trouble for the couple of removal men who delivered our items in France. everyone was a credit to the companies involved . I would recommend you to anyone doing what we did. thank you all

An exceptionally professional, helpful and courteous service for an international move to Italy. Good value, highly efficient and communicative. It made a difficult move straightforward. Coordination with both the storage unit in the UK and Italian removal partners was excellent. I highly recommend Bishop's International.

Considerate and flexible

Considerate and flexible preparation (even organised parking for minimal extra fee); punctual, charming, and extremely efficient on the day. Four day job done in three...OK they will have had to drive back on day four. Still 350 boxes to unpack (years?!) but I will be very surprised if much is amiss. Categories e.g. books, china etc all clearly labelled. Many thanks to all concerned.

AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE FOR OVERSEAS MOVES

Appalling service provided by Bishop's Move for our move overseas with the Royal Navy. Our belongings were collected on the 6th September with the promise they would arrive into Gibraltar within 7-10 weeks. However today, the 18th November, we have been advised they still have failed to load them onto a ship and conveniently they have changed their lead times to 10-12 weeks however by the time we get our stuff it will have been over 14 weeks (providing they actually load them onto a ship this time. Maybe this time will be third time lucky?) What a way to treat our Forces Families.

All was going well until the day of moving - a mix up occurred and the removal crew arrived a week earlier than expected. There was no flexibility offered in re-arranging to the planned date and I had to go ahead with moving everything on that day. I ended up having to pay for additional items to be shipped separately as I still needed things and couldn't ship everything earlier. This would not have been necessary if pick up had been on the planned day.An apology was made by email, but no compensation was offered to cover the costs of additional shipping, or a refund made for being under the estimated volume (which I had already had to pay in advance).Overall, very stressful and I feel not much appreciation of this from Bishops Move side.

The Bishop\'s Move team moved my house contents into their storage facility

The Bishop's Move team moved my contents (including 3,500 books!) into their storage facility and they were excellent. I was so glad that I opted to get them to move me. I was expecting a nightmare and it turned out to be a very pleasant and stress-free day.The crew were particularly helpful and good fun as well. I would not hesitate to recommend Bishop's Move and I look forward to using them again when we eventually find a house. Finally, their estimating was spot on - they predicted 7 containers and 7 containers it was! I received a first class service from everyone on the Bishop's Move team. I had almost forgotten what it was like to receive this level of service!!

Just had the pleasure of watching one of your lorries on the A361 drive down the wrong side of a solid white lined main road, past all the queuing traffic, past the several cars pulled across the road to block the road, past several people waving for him to stop - SO HE COULD PLOUGH STRAIGHT THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF A ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENT WITH CARS AND CASUALTIES STILL BEING ASSESSED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD! he then continued on the wrong side of the road until he was clear of the accident; which he drove through at some speed, to continue on his way. Absolutely disgusting behaviour, there were injured people and those assisting the casualties in the road, debris everywhere, but clearly delivering is far more important than their safety and well being. Truly disgusting driving.

I used Bishops as many years ago I worked for this company when they were Bishops Blatchpack. In those days it was a professional company. I paid for a full packing and home moving service. On the day of my move ne of the team kept moaning about having so many things to pack, suggesting I just throw my belongings away. When we arrived at my new house one of the moving team just walked off the job before even starting to unload my belongings into my house, saying it was close to his house and he was going home. The rest of the team then just dumped most of my belongings in the back garden, rather than placing them into the rooms they need to go into. I spent the next couple of days moving all my boxes and furniture into my house. There was a lot of minor damage to my furniture, picture frames and other belongings. Nothing significant enough to claim on insurance, but significant enough to notice. A number of my possessions went missing (eg. all my fishing gear and some of my musical equipment) which i didn't realise until a couple of weeks later. Overall they made what was already a stressful experience of moving house into a total nightmare.

So many hurdles. Have to do a video call to show the size of property before you can get a quote. Weird. This was after telling the girl the exact items I needed moving specifically (there weren't many items) and explaining my deadline and situation (me not being at the property so unable to do the video call). I was disappointed with the way she handled my call as it seemed unhelpful in my situation.

Would not recommend. Still waiting for items which were supposed to booked to go on a shipment but staff left until the last minute in peak time to book it and then found it full. Having paid upfront and booked way in advance, I would assume that an international removals company would also have the organisation to book the space in advance to ensure my goods arrived on time. Not impressed. Customer service from my complaint to the 'international removals manager' was even less impressive.
