My move was from London to Sydney. I would have to say the service received until delivery was good. However, all that became irrelevant when my goods were finally delivered and I discovered they were significantly damaged. Not only was it disappointing that my goods were negligently packed by Pickfords, it was also disappointing that the delivery staff, who were contracted to also unpack, tried to hide the damage. To add insult to injury, Pickfords then did their best not to honour the insurance contract they had sold to me. They were obstructionists and even lied through the process. I eventually got some compensation but had to take them to court to do so and this ... Read the complete review

A locked box containing all my family photos disappeared from a consignment with Allied Pickfords. Their service after the goods were lost was appalling -- they took forever to reply to my enquiries and complaints, and I got conflicting information as to what they had done in order to try and find my goods. I still have no idea what happened to my photos.

I moved from North West England, UK to Southern Italy, afraid to say I have to agree with the negative reviews concerning Pickfords/Allied Pickfords - and, before others rush to say "ah but people only feel moved to review when they have something to complain about rather than praise" as I have read in one or two other reviews, one has to ask oneself WHY there are SO MANY negative reviews?? Yes it's true, more people tell others about poor service than excellent service but so many awful reviews - surely we can't all be wrong? I did some research regarding international removers (with hindsight, I wish I had done more but I had time pressures to get ... Read the complete review

We have moved from England to Australia and back about 6 times using various removal companies. Never any problems and the most that was broken was a few plates and we have never taken up transit insurance. This time, because we are elderly, we decided to use Pickfords UK linking up with Allied Pickfords in Australia because they were, as we thought, market leaders and would look after everything for us. We were somewhat surprised when told that the packing would take 3 days and we would have to move out before the last day as the beds would be gone by then. Apparently everything was taken to a depot and loaded into a container there. So that was one extra move for . Read the complete review

I moved with Allied Pickfords in June from London to Auckland and have been nothing other than appalled at the service (or lack of it) that I received. 4 months later I am still battling with incompetent staff who refuse to help and are unprofessional and cannot be bothered to do their job properly. We received the 'hard sell' but were totally misled. They wanted to get me in to get my money but then fulfilled none of their promises re timings and our goods were not looked after. Our beautiful day bed had its leg and arm ripped and 26 other items were badly damaged but to date they will not take responsibility for this. Staff in London needed to be chased ...
