Two professional, polite and smartly dressed delivery men, [names removed by Sirelo], arrived, as notified to us, early one Saturday morning to deliver our possessions. Extreme care was taken with the placement of the van in our drive, with unloading and placement in the house. A lot of skill shown by [name removed by Sirelo] in his handling of the large van in a narrow road and good team work shown by him and [name removed by Sirelo] in both entrance and exit of the van.
pro
Good communication by [name removed by Sirelo] the day before and on the day of arrival confirming delivery and ETA
pro
Polite, professional and handled goods with care.

Hunts are good value for money, they provide excellent service with any support you need . They arrive exactly when they say they will and their drivers and support staff are a credit to their company. When delivering your items they move them to the room you request.

So good that we will be using Hunts International again in a few months!
From the first call to the delivery, Hunts have been highly professional, responsive and accommodating (and reasonably priced, we compared!).
Turned up spot on time both for collection and delivery, matched our preferred dates and mived all the furniture on delivery to the desired room.
Highly recommended!

At a time when I was really stressed about my move the people at Hunts gave me (justified) confidence that the logistics of getting my stuff from UK to France was something I didn't have to worry about. All the people I engaged with from the office to the chaps who collected and delivered were polite, friendly and helpful. Thank you.

A 'compulsive mover' friend of mine recommended Hunts to me. She is very organised (and moves house a lot) and I therefore reckoned her judgement would be good.

Hunts patiently put up with our buyer's people fiddling about and mucking us around every step of the way; to the point the planned move wasn't even certain till a week or so before.

So when the friendly, young Hunts removal lads arrived on time; smiles on their faces, efficiently got everything loaded, delivered and unloaded (with a careful and slightly amazing strength) - it all felt super efficient and stress free in comparison to the palava of selling (and staying up all night beforehand doing the final tidying and packing!)

We did not choose Hunts International; due to the 'Origin' Removal Company in Dubai not informing Hunts International in the UK that our goods would soon arrive in the UK for further shipment to Sweden. Hunts International voluntarily took on the responsibility of the transit procedure to ship our goods to our home country destination Sweden. The entire removal procedure was a debacle from the very outset. Unknown to us, the payment that we made to the removal company, EURO MOVERS in Dubai, was limited only to paying for the costs of shipping our goods to the UK. Our Shipment destination was Malung in Sweden. When this situation became a reality, Hunts International took it upon themselves to arrange for the necessary transit procedures to be undertaken in order that our shipment would arrive at its correct final destination in Sweden. Communication with Hunts International (Mr. Lance Hunt) during the entire shipment procedure was regular and continuous. At no time did we feel that we were being 'kept in the dark'. Our shipment contained household goods and personal effects are were / are of great value to us. We thank Hunts International for ensuring that we were able to make use of these precious and personal items......All 15 boxes, all of them undamaged, arrived at our home in Sweden yesterday morning November 6, 2017, six (6) months and three (3) days after being packed in our house in Dubai.

I was very positively impressed with the staff sent to pack my belongings from Belfast. The packing was exceptional, as was the friendly attitude of the two gentlemen. I have also appreciated the regular contact from Hunts International about the progress of things…and finally I was very satisfied with DOM Transport in Malta for their professional delivery.

You have all made my move back home easy, and for this I will be forever grateful. I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends.

Under extremely difficult circumstances caused by the Dubai movers they cleared goods at their cost.
My goods could have been left in the UK port, and destroyed.
They were not paid by the Dubai movers but have still delivered my goods.They have charged a new invoice but they have incurred many costs. They could have walked away, but they did not. I now have my goods.

Where do I begin? It first started off with hiring a company in UAE called [name removed by Sirelo]. It started off well with them when they came to visit and collect the goods, then my suspicions of a rouge company started to arise from the lack of communication. It took [name removed by Sirelo] months to even get to the stage of shipping my goods. ( I could go on for hours about how [name removed by Sirelo] were but I will end that story here )
The goods finally got shipped ( 4 months after collecting from our home ) and the container with our and other peoples goods arrived at port in the UK. This is where Hunts International came in to the picture. Well actually Hunts International were oblivious to the container arriving as [name removed by Sirelo] had not informed them and shipped it under their name. I later found out that the container had been sat at the port for weeks until Hunts had been contacted by the relevant person(s) at the port to inform them.
Hunts then stepped in to action and tried to make contact with [name removed by Sirelo] to resolve the fact that [name removed by Sirelo] HAD NOT EVEN PAID THE SHIPPING COSTS!!!!!!! As you can imagine I was outraged at this point as [name removed by Sirelo] had seriously let me and my family down!
I was contacted by Lance Hunt from Hunts International and he had explained to me that he that the [name removed by Sirelo] had not paid the shipping line and many other parties. He explained that that they had paid the costs in order to get the container with my goods on board released from the port and to their warehouse. At least it was safe and sound at this point and not in no mans land. I spoke with Lance/Adam and Daryl along the way and they kept me well informed of the progress.
Once they got all the costs from the shipping line that the rats [name removed by Sirelo] had used and all the charges from the port, they contacted me and gave me the costs. As you can imagine I was furious as I had already PAID [name removed by Sirelo] for a door to door service. But I understood that I Had no choice as [name removed by Sirelo] had completely stitched me up. Saying that I can not be more thankful for the team at Hunts as they have done nothing but help me along this very difficult situation that I hope that I never face again. I have been informed by Lance that some of the other people that had their goods on board are not so happy. I can only say that they must have blinkers on and more foolish for them for not being able to understand how they have helped us so much. Our goods would still have been at port building storage costs on a daily basis.
When I do come to move again, I will most certainly be using Hunts again as they have gone above and beyond the line of duty.
Long and short of this review is

Hunts International = Fantastic company that have gone above and beyond what was expected of them. Thank you for all your help from the bottom of my heart.
[name removed by Sirelo] = Lying, deceitful RATS ( they will go to court for this, I have since found out that the owner of [name removed by Sirelo] also owns another company that the police will be in touch with soon)

This shoudl be 0 Stars!!
We hired Hunts as a local company to move us to Spain. We made it clear we did not want to use sub contractors and was coming to them as they were local and used their own vans. On the day we were moving, a non english speaking , European sub contractor was sent in a plain white van. Obviously we called to express our concerns as we were very clear on this point but was accused of being racist, on more than one occasion which I can only assume is a tactic to make you shut up and back down.

Our fears of a subcontractor was confirmed and in the middle of the sea we were called to say we needed to pay €3000 fine to release the vehicle ( or the vehicle wouldn’t be reaching the destination). Even with 5.5 hours notice, Hunts International decided to tell us 5 mins before they closed for the weekend.

As much as they pass the blame to the sub contractor, my agreement was with them. They came twice to my house to measure so they were responsible for booking the correct sized vehicle. The vehicle was overweight but I’m sure no one actually knows the weight of the contents of their house, this is a professionals job which HUNTS definitely are not. The BAR have confirmed that the fine was the drivers responsibility and that HUNTS should have measured the contents of the house accurately or informed me the vehicle was overweight and illegal before they left.

After a lot of heartache we hire a local company to collect our belonging which was a battle in itself as our belonging were held to ransom. Luckily my partner is Spanish and could converse with the local police. At no point did Hunts allow the belonging to be released, this was the driver who was worried he was going to be arrested for theft.

AVOID at all cost, don’t make a stressful time more stressful by using this company.

I have waited to calm down before making this review however I would not feel comfortable if someone making a big move was put in this situation and made to pay because they had no other options.

Using a company because they are local isnt always the best option and I wish I has gone with the recommendation I was given.

Sub-contrato todo a DHL y por envío económico. No comunico que era una mudanza y DHL se presento con furgonetas y gastamos más de 400€ en permisos para que llegara un supuesto camión de 7.5 toneladas. No quiso arreglar que la recogida fuera en un horario establecido, lo dejó abierto de 9 a 17 y exigió que nuestras pertenencias estuvieran en el portal, nunca dijo que DHL era el transporte y por eso no podían subir por ellas a un segundo piso.
