Customer service is not proactive, I have to chase for updates every time and I rarely get the information I am after. Their system is supposedly down, this has been the case for the past 5 weeks!
If I could rate lower than one star I would. The removal took place over 3 days at the end of April/start of May 2021 in Peterborough. I want to state first of all that Pickfords do not employ their own staff. They subcontract this out to other removals companies. Therefore on our removal day we got three staff from 3 different removal companies with 3 different ways of doing things. All in their 20s and no life experience with no care or attention. All of the clothes where thrown into the boxes from room regardless of what was in the room with no care. The removals manager was non existent throughout the whole process constantly passing the buck onto the removal team staff on the day. Damage was done to our American style fridge and kitchen sideboard unit which together is worth £2000. All we have been offered is £400 compensation from spending nearly £4000 on the removal itself over 3 days due to it being a large removal of a family of 7. The whole point of of removal was to help us and relieve any stress but instead Pickfords caused more stress and has been one of the worse experiences I have ever been through with any company. The stuff in my garage was thrown with no organisation, attention or care taken. Senior management do not want to no and in the end stop communicating with you. 4 Staff where disciplined but for what went wrong for us especially I had a severe back disability and I was expecting 5 star luxury service to help me and my family move. Very upsetting and Pickfords are a disgrace of a company.
We also did not get everything in that was quoted so had to sell some items if we had been told earlier we could of had a bigger container .
The boxes that are left we were told about once we had moved leaving is no options and now they are trying to charge us .
