|Phil and Ricky moved my possessions across London, and up a steep flight of stairs to a first floor flat. They did this carefully and efficiently - even limited parking did not seem a problem. Phil has now moved me four times and is always really helpful manner - this is great if the move is stressful. Thanks again!|

|Cancelled with 24hrs notice. |
We arranged a move through lightweight movers. We are moving from a shared house into our new flat of our own. We have a single room in our current place that packs up into 10 or so boxes. The move was a little bit complicated by the fact we have a kitchen table and chairs plus a few more boxes in a storage facility. Phil accepted the move, however the next day, 24hrs before the move, sent an email saying it looked as though we were trying to move an "extra person" and that he had to cancel as the job was too big. This was very strange, and caused a bit of a panic as we then had to arrange another man with van at short notice. All in all, it looks like he generally gives good service (and the quote was reasonable value) but we did not receive great service on this occasion. Disappointing.
UPDATE: In response to lightweights comments below, they have been dealing with my wife, whilst I have been copied into all correspondence. Have just had my wife on the phone, feeling thoroughly harassed after you threatened her with law suits because I wrote a non-glowing review - which I actually find to be both accurate and quite restrained.
UPDATE 2: This just received from Phil: "This is the rubbish your partner has left on free index I have contacted a solicitor about it
Nothing was booked or confirmed and no correspondence what so ever with the person that has left it" with a cut and paste from my original review.
It's a real shame that this has gotten so nasty. A simple "sorry you were disappointed" with an explanation, would have gone down much better and may have saved a customer. Threats, insults and harassment is all we have received. Please stop harassing my wife - feel free to contact me through this site.
