Once i had paid the customer service became non-existent. My move coordinator answered 3 out of 20 of my emails where i was asking questions regarding the move. I realised I had to call to get answers, so I spent a lot caling the UK from NL. Once my goods were on the truck my move coordinator lost the truck completely. It took over a week longer than expected. He could not and would not give me an ETA. He told me he had no idea where the truck was. He called me all sorts of names and was absolutely awful. Totally forgot that I was the customer and he was supposed to helping me. It was one of the most shocking and terrifying and stressful experiences I've ever had, anywhere. I am only now able to talk about it. I was deeply depressed and anxious after dealing with him. He should not be doing that job. I recommend that company is not used.

Moved from Zierikzee (The Netherlands) to Lisbon (Portugal).


Recommendation

So far my move is very satisfactory the movers came to my home and packed my belongings quickly and stress free for me, but have not received my consignment yet.
As far as I know it has yet to be shipped.
So will update when move is completed.

Pros and cons
Hassle free to deal with

What a shambles!
I moved from Scotland to Guernsey with the unhelpful help of MoveCorp. The person allocated to me, [name removed by Sirelo], lacked communication and was never in office when I phoned. I sent my deposit and never received a receipt for nor did I receive a confirmation of the actual pick up date in writing. I then received an email from her to let me know of the remainder to be paid by the following day however they had not deducted the deposit so I had to phone up about that. I then paid the rectified amount and did not receive a confirmation of payment until after my third phone call to the company on the date of pick up.
That brings us swiftly on to the pick up date, 10th August. This date was chosen as I was getting the next day flight to Guernsey thinking that the boxes would arrive on the Monday morning and I wouldn’t go too long without the essentials. 9:30am I phone MoveCorp to check that it is still on, they look at their system and say my pick up is still a..

Pros and cons
cheap, for a reason
if you want extra stress then go with this company, you will receive loads for sure
lack of communication
lack of organisation
Moved from Paisley (United Kingdom) to St Peterson Port (Guernsey).


Recommendation

They delivered on time, but there was a small complication with their sub contractor in Austria.

Pros and cons
Delivered on time
No very responsive to emails
Moved from Graz (Austria) to Birmingham (United Kingdom).


No recommendation

Came to pick up my boxes out of the time slots.
No information about the whereabout of the boxes. Changed the delivery date 4 times (with no warning - did not call to say they were not coming - I had to call them several time per day). At the end it took 5 weeks for them to deliver my boxes from UK to France...
One of the people I spoke to threated me to send my boxes back to the UK if I was not home to collect them (on the 3rd date they gave me) and they did not delivered the boxes on that day...
The all experience has been very stressful for me and my family. The way the team speaks to their customer is absolutly shocking.
Will NEVER use them again.

Pros and cons
boxes did arrived at the end
Never keep you updated
Speak to you like if you could not understand things
Moved from Manchester (United Kingdom) to Marseille (France).


No recommendation

We shipped 21 boxes with this mover, the time estimate was 10 days; it ended up being 5 weeks. In the end, only 19 boxes out of 21 arrived to the address in Italy. The company contact Melanie Cooper at first replied to my email and promised 'to email the warehouse' but then stopped returning my emails. Their phone is impossible to get through. This is a scam company and I recommend to steer away from it.

Pros and cons
price
planning
Failure to comply
Moved from London (United Kingdom) to Bologna (Italy).


Recommendation

I called in about a week before I moved out of my space in London and the way they responded to my request was excellent. Their customer service team is top notch and always ready to help out in dire situations. They came in early on the day and helped me pack somethings and in no distant time, they moved my stuffs to my new place.

I'm very excited I used their services out of the various firms I checked out online. Keep up the good work guys.

Pros and cons
Quick
CS is good
Moved from London (United Kingdom) to Birmingham (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

I have used lots of movers in the past, but Movecorp offers something special. From the first time I contacted them to when the move was completed. Their services are excellent. Highly recommended

Moved from London (United Kingdom) to Manchester (United Kingdom).


No recommendation

Our experience with this company has been beyond awful. Make sure you carefully review their terms and conditions because they will rely on them to absolve themselves of any responsibility for delays to delivery and/or lost or stolen items.

We were advised that our shipment would be delivered from London to Dubai wihin 8-12 weeks. The shipment did not leave the UK for 3+ months after it was collected by Movecorp. We were told this was because they wanted to send it on a full shipping container (which made it more profitable for them) but that was NOT within their control and therefore they were not liable for the delays.

Our shipment finally arrived 5+ months later and there were 13 items missing (very expensive power tools) and what was delivered was all damaged and filthy. Again, we were told that this was not Movecorps' responsibility as they were only responsible for 'attempting' to deliver goods and not for their actual delivery. We were told that any compensation fo.. Read more

Moved from Glasgow (United Kingdom) to Edinburgh (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

I chose this company because a family member had already had a great experience with them and they were able to move me locally. It was only a short move, but with the amount of stuff it was just too many car trips. Didn't overly deliver in any area, but were just professional all along. Thank you :)

Pros and cons
Local movers
Helped me pack
Arrived a little later than expected
Moved from Darrington (United Kingdom) to Pontefract (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

Really great experience with these movers, they packed everything up safely, came on the day and time they said they would and the move went without a hitch.

The contract was changed after goods picked up to another agent by movecorp. At this moment in time we do not have a delivery date and the time period does not fit at all, no guarantee more slippage. Dealings after have been appalling . [name removed by Sirelo] who was not even the named contact was incredibly rude, put the phone down , said if we want to deliver in three months we can , that is why we are cheap. Obviously never heard of [name removed by Sirelo]. I have little confidence that the goods will be delivered, or whether they will be damaged by this change of delivery company, would not have agreed to it if been warned beforehand - apparently movecorp knew this before pick up. Not impressed at all caused a lot of stress and I have incurable cancer anyway. DO NOT NEED THIS STRESS

Pros and cons
After payment appalling customer service
No attempt to get good to destination within time frame
Moved from Buckhurst Hill Essex (United Kingdom) to Gavasetto (Italy).

I have NEVER had such a bad experience with a move. I relocated from Spain to the US and had issues with Movecorp since the beginning. The associate that helped me is incompetent. She didn't even understand their own process. She sent me out to obtain a parking permit for the truck which was a huge hassle. It turned out that the movers already had a permit and I wasted hours of my time. Secondly, the quote I was provided was actually half of what it was actually going to cost when the movers arrived at my house. This happened because they never sent them in advance to assess the home, which is standard practice. How disappointed was I to have to just leave behind tons of my belongings, couch, kitchen table, decorations, clothes and kitchen appliances because I was provided an incorrect quote? I couldn't even sell or donate my items. The third issue was the fact that they held on to my belongings for 6.5 weeks!!!!!! My husband and I were living in an empty house for months. The actual s..

No recommendation

What a scam! I wish we had read all the dishusting negative reviews on this company. A list of goods were supplied to the company and a quote of £510 plus Vat was accepted. The furniture was picked up and 24 hours later a rather rude and blunt e mail arrived demanding a further £540 was received,They had us over a barrel. We asked for our goods to be returned but that would have cost us more. Not once were we asked to measure the cubic metre or sizes of any of the goods to be moved. They obviously quote a low price to get your custom only to double the price. What a scam. I would never recommend this company. Steer clear do not use !!!!!

Pros and cons
Not clear about how their quotation work
Moved from Stody (United Kingdom) to Couloutre (France).


No recommendation

I wish I’d take an other company...
we paid for the full service door to door (announced 8 to 10 weeks), but no one came to pack our goods... Just a driver ! So we had to pack them in an emergency without the right material they were suppose to provide... More than 5 months later (Grenoble (for)- Boston) we received our goods (far from the delay first announced!) with some of them broken. Movecorp keeps disgarding us and not answering our emails...
Don’t lose your money, take someone else, they are far from being experts and professional in international moving, and the way they treat their clients is more than disgusting.

Pros and cons
Really reactive before you pay!!
Non professional
Doesn’t care about costumer
Moved from Grenoble (France) to Boston (United States).


No recommendation

They wrong the collection day, and I was very clear by phone with the dates it was essential, because in other day no one would be at home. And instead apologise they blame me and at the and I had to pay someone to stay present during the collection. At the delivery I found 5 boxes with broken goods inside and 2 furniture damaged

Pros and cons

Was sent an email asking me if I would like to move in December 2017 as they had room on container and I could have it as discount. Do not be fooled by this it is now 1st Feb 2018 and my possessions have still not left UK. I chose this company on the understanding that I would have my possessions with me in middle of February.

Pros and cons
People picking up kind and helpful
Unethical and devious
Replies via omnibus man rude and obnoxious
Moved from Bellington (United Kingdom) to Brisbane (Australia).


No recommendation

I have put one star because the system doesn't allow me to put ZERO stars! I am completely dissatisfied, they are the most unprofessional service provider I've ever dealt with. My goods were never delivered on the day the consignment was scheduled and after days of waiting and dozens of phone calls and emails they came up with an unbelievable list of lame excuses: first they said the key had snapped into the truck door whilst in France and the drivers didn't have a spare key with them (so long for being prepared for any setbacks) so they had to post the spare key from the UK (!!!); then they said that when the drivers received the new key and went to pick up the truck it wasn't there, the police knew nothing about it so they reported it stolen... I and the other customers were left with no updates for nearly a week... then when I informed them that I had managed to trace all the other customers whose goods were on that truck, that we were sharing information and had exposed all the lie..

DO NOT TRUST THEM WITH YOUR VALUABLES
Moved from London (United Kingdom) to Cogoleto (Italy).


No recommendation

Everything went on relatively well until my shipment arrived, I had a missing side table which is of a significant value and stationery (of a small value). I reported it right away and removal coordinator said she'll get their staff to search the warehouse. For weeks I didn't hear from her. Had to write to her a couple of times and also to the company general email to enquire. When there's no respond, I sent a Messenger message, threatening to report them. It was immediately after that that I heard from my removal coordinator, stating that they're still looking for the missing items. I then realised that I've not been sent an insurance certificate in spite of paying for insurance, hence I requested for my certificate as I've wanted to proceed with a missing item claim. To our shock and horror, she wrote back to say there were no insurance policy bought! I had made payment, they accepted it, and now they tell me there's no insurance policy covered, blaming me that I did not sign the pol.. Read more

Pros and cons
Initial follow up before shipment was good
Communications before items went missing were good.
Unscrupulous, evasive after I pressed for my missing item
Paid for insurance, they accepted my money, but when items are missing, they said there were no insurance bought!

Pros and cons
Customer service is non existent

Worst exsperience we have had with a mover. No customer service, hidden charges and unable to estimate the size of the job. Happy to take unwanted items home with them and MD was the worst I have dealt with. Lucky we are now in Sydney or I would have taken them to court..

Our relocation from Melbourne to Madrid was contracted with ChessMoving who assigned Movecorp as the local company for the section UK to Madrid.
Our Experience with Movecorp is absolutely disapointing, several customers have reported the same issues in their previous reviews.

- Lack of update - we have never got any information unless we asked for it. Some essential questions (i.e. delivery time, contact to address our complain...) are never answered.
- Obvious delay - timeframes indicated through a templated email which has probably not been updated since years creating absolutely inappropriate expectations.
- No defined schedule, no defined pathway - Movecorp seems not to be able to provide any information regarding who, when and how things will be transported.
- You pay everything and then they will do when they want/can.

This is clearly unprofessional and unexperienced company, we are still waiting them to make any visible progress, so I hope this review will help other c.. Read more

Bought an insurance, but did pack my furniture, two items where damaged and they said they can't refund me because they did not pack them, so not only I spent the money for the insurance but now I have to buy a new wardrobe, very unprofessional service

Pros and cons
They ask you to buy insurance but forget to mention the details, but as usual, is in the fine prints
Moved from Delft (The Netherlands) to Liverpool (United Kingdom).


No recommendation

Horrible experience. Long story short, while their original quote was 319 GBP, it finally cost me an extra of 940 euros (extra charges plus missing/broken precious items). Totally irresponsible and untrustworthy.

Pros and cons
Everything, from customer service to price to dishonesty and lack of professionalism.
Moved from Brussels (Belgium) to Cambridge (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

Excellent from start to finish!

Moved from Warminster (United Kingdom) to Surry (United States).


No recommendation

Simply terrible customer service, such as too early pick up (2 hours prior to original arrangement!!!) without earlier announcement.
Then, insisting on early pick up.
Then, six weeks duration until delivery in Germany
Then, not all effects were delivered, as my TV was missing and had to be relocated.
Then, another > 2 week time until I got my TV.
Overall, the absolute worst moving company I had in over 15 moves.

Pros and cons
unfriendliness
lack of organization
Moved from London (United Kingdom) to Schwaebisch Gmuend (Germany).


No recommendation

Most of the move went fine but the lead guy didn't liaise with his admin person about an arrangement we had reached. He became quite rudely hostile and this left a bad taste in the mouth. I did receive an apology from my admin contact but there was no excuse for his attitude.

Pros and cons
Efficient
Reasonable pricing
Individual described became extremely rude

Firstly I was very impressed. I moved my goods from Tresco (isles of Scilly) to the channel islands. I took out the insurance (best part of £400), sent pictures of my fully packed containers and some goods were delivered damaged. Not even claiming on the telly or bespoke photograph frame (the highest value items) I attempted to claim on insurance. Of course I'm not covered-story of insurance companies lives. Despite the fact that the removal vans were packed by a delivery company and my pictures clearly display no room for movement in the container so how is the wardrobe going to get a hole in the back of it?? I'm absolutely incensed, I even repaired my own PC (didn't operate on delivery) and removed it from the claim. How much more honest does one need to be? Why quote £400 if you don't even cover the goods-are you insane?

Pros and cons
Profiteering
Unhelpful
Moved from Penzance (United Kingdom) to St Peter Port (Guernsey).


Recommendation

More clearance about the details, specially for insurance details.

Pros and cons
Attention

Knowledgable and delivered within timeframe

Moved from London (United Kingdom) to Oslo (Norway).


Recommendation

Movecorp gave the best quote and kept the promises of picking my contents as late as they possible and deliver it within 6 days from Derby UK to Basel Switzerland. Plus their price quote was the best compare to other companies. A special thanks goes Mathew Ladley as he constantly kept me updated , answer questions promptly and able to resolve issues expediently.

Pros and cons
Mathew Ladley for keeping me well informed and resolving issues promptly
Price and delivery time
Not happy to provide feedback directly to the movers as unable to provide constructive feedback as they are watching what I am filling.

Moved from Meerbusch (Germany) to Christchurch (New Zealand).


Recommendation

I was pleased that I could do a lot myself to avoid the packing , this cut the cost down. The other UK company was 3 times more and overall the company is worth, providing the customer puts the effort in.

Pros and cons
They are polite and listen to you, chase up queries well
Some misunderstanding re the pick up time and goods were delivered on two days due to a warehouse mix up.
Moved from Trostberg (Germany) to Bradford (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

Very satisfied from my very contact with the customer service (desk lady). Professional and extremely helpful. However, the moving crew and delivery crew need to be more conscious of time as I do understand situation on the road sometimes. 1-2 hours waiting time could be acceptable but when it's over 4 hours something need to be done. The driver did kept me informed though but personally it's below standard. They can do better.
Overall, well done and very good.
