Customer Reviews

Over the last 160 years, Bishop’s Move has delivered services to hundreds of thousands of happy removals and storage customers. Here’s what a few of them have said about us:

In writing:

"The removal teams were FANTASTIC.  I really cannot praise them highly enough.  Nothing was too much trouble, they were efficient, and a joy to have around.  Their foreman, Graham, was superb.  I felt he had the whole job, enormous as it seemed, under control from start to finish. They were all a credit to your company."
Recommended by K Broughton

"I wish i could remember the names of our crew that you sent to us as they were by far the best team ive had. Friendly, and hardworking, i couldnt fault them as they packed our belongings carefully and securely. I hope with the infomation i give you, you would be able to find out who they are on your records and award them. We had 2 crew members on move out, and on move in one had been changed for someone else, i am thanking 3 individuals altogether."
Recommended by LCpl D Reeve

"Everyone of your staff were great. They pulled out all the stops to get the house packed and moved within a few days. Paul and I think it was Clint (apologies if I have his name wrong think my memory is failing) did a brilliant job of moving everything once in Linlithgow. They were really good with Robert."
Recommended by Mr Hardstaff

"On the day of the move the removal staff were excellent nothing was too much trouble you should be proud to have staff like that working for you"
Recommended by Mrs P Page

"I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the lads who helped us move out of our London house and into our new one in Newcastle - especially the Leeds boys. Moving house, as you know, can be a very daunting process but, their positivity, sense of humour, patience and sheer hard graft, made the whole experience so much better for us. Honestly, we can't thank them enough. Please do also pass on my thanks to Frank who estimated our packing requirements perfectly-almost to the box in fact! Thank you too for all your help. We won't hesitate to recommend Bishops to any of our friends who may move house in the future."
Recommended by S Howstan

"The 3 removal men (Darren,Paul and Gerry) were an amazing and professional team. They worked very well together with no complaints.They worked late into the evening due to a difficult transhipment down an unmade road. They were unfailingly polite and repeatedly asked if any heavy furniture needed further shifting, right up to the point of departure. Your quote was very accurate and competative. It was exactly 2,600 cu ft using exemplary packing skill. We have been recommending you highly to all our friends. Well done and thank you."
Recommended by Mr P Banner, 

"In the face it, our move couldn't have been more relaxed and organised. Your team worked efficiently and were ever smiling, accommodating and a pleasure to work with. I would definitely use Bishop’s Move again and would certainly recommend you to others."
Recommended by Mr Mark Doherty

"I would particularly like you to commend Gary and Errol from the removal crew for their professionalism and care with which they carried out my mother's move.  This was a very stressful time for her and they could not have been more caring but professional attitude. The only minor issues we had were with the failure to pack a cupboard and 3 draws in the kitchen, and a dent in the porch ceiling as marked on the job sheet. However, I would like to reiterate that both Gary and Errol were quite outstanding and a credit to your company.Paul Bristow, the salesman, was also particularly helpful and patient with all my questions.

"The whole moving day is a very emotional one but it was made much easier by the professional and friendly staff of Bishop's Move.  Thank you very much."
Recommended by Mr & Mrs Bennett

"I am compelled once again to write you, Jamie and his team were fantastic. What impressed me most is that one of the team found a leatherman that I had lost over a year ago and it was returned to me. I think you would agree that this kind of honesty and character is not common in todays world. Please pass my thanks to Jamie and the team, they were great!" 
Recommended by Mr Sisson

"I just wanted to touch base and complement you on your staff. You have been responsible for moving me from UK to Argentina to the US and back.

Your company has made it a much less stressful experience than it could have been. This is, to a greater extent, down the assistance of Julie who has been around through the whole process."
Recommended by Mr Williams

"Excellent service by Martin the sales rep, the removal crew (especially Andy & Mark) were exceptional.  Would highly recommend and use again."
Recommended by Mr S Goodman-Monger, Exeter

"Craig, Darren and Mick were excellent, nothing too much trouble, on both packing and unpacking with them ensuring that the delivery was to our satisfaction before departing. The crew were very sociable, and we enjoyed good banter with them which removed a lot of stress from the day - whilst having banter they remained totally professional and focused throughout. Since moving we have had no other after care contact to date - other than this email survey. The overall experience with Bishops from the initial quote, to visiting the office to pay, and having the crew in has been excellent - we have already recommended you to a neighbour in the estate who asked if we were pleased with the service.
Thanks to the whole team for a job well done :-)"
Recommended by Mr Ian Heads, Portsmouth

"We had a very satisfactory experience during this landmark move for the company. Bishops Move were very flexible in accommodating our ever changing requirements and always achieving the desired result. As a result we have engaged you for a further move from our offices in the south of England."
Recommended by Rod Barlow, James Fisher Defence

"I just wanted to say how pleased I was with your company. My team of movers, Sam, Terry and Chris was brilliant. They telephoned to give an ETA, explained everything and were neat, tidy, efficient and any other adjective you would like to name! Jackie was on the phone to answer any questions and Sue was helpful and informative in my initial phone call. Considering that I moved in a really short space of time ( under 2 weeks from initial contact to final move ) I can't thank you enough.

I used you through a recommendation of a friend who moved to South Africa and I would happily do the same."
Liz Keller, SA

"Everything went without a hitch and your crew took all of the stress out of the day. I have to say that you have a fantastic team working for you and I couldn't sing their praises more highly. They were all professional, polite and extremely hard working. I would really appreciate it if you could pass on my comments."
J. Murphy, UK

"We used Bishops Move for our relocation to Dubai and were hugely impressed by the efficiency, care and professionalism they showed. They removed the worry of the move and their packing and transportation service was second to none. Coupled with their use of very effective agents at the destination the process could not have been smoother. I recommend them without hesitation for any overseas move."
J. Stamper, Dubai

"The boys did a fab job. They were polite, cheerful and friendly throughout."
Mrs Rose, Pulborough

"Excellent service - thankyou to all the team who moved us: Simon (both days), Mark, Cat, George and Nicki. A painless and (almost) enjoyable move!"
Mr & Mrs Hill, Huntingdon

"I am just writing to say how happy we were with our 'moving day'....We cannot praise the experience enough. No stress, everything was taken out of our hands during the move. The move team were like lightning and still friendly, caring people. We would definitely come back to Bishops Move in the future, and would recommend to everyone.

Don't change a thing, you are all perfect as you are."
Mr & Mrs Burgess, Eastbourne

"....would very much like to thank you all at Bishops for looking after us so well. Nothing has been too much trouble, even in my times of stress, staff have been nothing but courteous. Moving is supposed to be one of the stresses in life, which it has been for us in the past, however, believe it or not we have been relaxed and have enjoyed the move up to Lincolnshire. All the lads who came to the house at Milton Heights were great, discussing what are needs were and working with it accordingly, obviously also giving advice for timings etc, however, we must inparticular say a special thank you to Alan and Alan who were with us throughout the move as they also were the ones to unload in Lincolnshire. They worked tirelessly, always with a great attitude and were, although remaining professional, able to make us feel at ease and part of the process. Words cannot describe how grateful we are for that.

It goes without saying that we will certainly recommend you to all our friends in Oxfordshire and indeed locally as you have various depots."
Mr & Mrs Durrance, Lincolnshire

"I have to say that the service from start to finish has been exceptional....Nothing was broken and everything was handled with such care and consideration. They [our porters] were very attentive to where we wanted our belongings to go and were insistent that they got it right first time...I honestly can't thank you all enough. I will be recommending you!"
Stephanie Hazelton

"I would like to say how wonderful the guys were who packed up my house and belongings, they were true gentleman and very efficient and easy to talk to.... they were terrific and sometimes they should get praise for what they do. Thanks for everything."
Sue Hawkins, Corsham, Wilsthire to Melbourne, Australia

"The packing and moving team were professional, polite and efficient. We had a very stress free move!".
Mr C Bailey, Dorking, Surrey

"The removal men, Clive and Matt who spent four hours packing all the fragile items were absolutely brilliant. They packed everything so well that not a single item was broken. We are delighted, thank you".
Graham & Sue Bott, East Sussex

"All the staff who helped us move to France have, without exception, provided a high quality service in a friendly professional manner, which was far above that which one would expect to receive".
Margaret & Michael Poat, France

"Both teams were on time, careful, polite, and went out of their way to do even the smallest thing. It was one of the smoothest moves we have ever done of our 20+ moves in 3 countries".
Mr Haynes, Oxford

"The move went extremely well and to time on collection and delivery. The removal staff were very efficient, hard working, friendly and courteous. Thank you!".
Dr Claudia Nitschke, Sunderland

"We have moved numerous times and used countless removal firms and you have by far been the best. Thank you!".
Mrs K Potter, Hampshire

"[We] would like to thank you all for the first class service that you have given us over the last 18 months. You have, at all levels, been friendly and direct with us which is a rare quality these days....The final stage of our move to France went off brilliantly, we can’t praise your men enough, and they were punctual, careful, well mannered and helpful."

Mr Wrate, Oxford

"The removals men who carried out my move turned up ahead of schedule and were really fantastic. I am 6 months pregnant and so very limited in what I could do and they were very helpful and professional. I would definitely use Bishop's Move again".
Miss Thomson, London.

"Your removals staff were patient, hard-working, un-fazed by the packing I hadn't managed to do, good humoured, helpful and polite. I really can't praise them enough, many thanks!".
Mr Wright, Bournemouth

“The service that I received – from first contact, to sales rep, to removal staff was quality. I had to delay my move by a few hours and there were charges but I was treated fairly and courteously by the ops manager. We believe the score is an A+! Very well done!".
Mrs Hales, Birmingham

“How refreshing to find a local branch of a national company which cares so much about good service, keen prices and hard work to achieve customer satisfaction. Thank you to the team for the fantastic performance”.
Mrs Newton, Birmingham
