The concept is good, but only one company got back to me with a quote so I couldn't 'Compare' my move as I only have one quote to go on.
I also presumed that it would be like getting insurance quotes, put all the details in and it would pop up with the quotes and you would pick the one you wanted, so I guess I was disappointed that after putting my details in it just told me 3 companies would get back to me.
Wouldn't use it again as I would just ring around next time as that's what I ended up doing anyway.
Only 1 company contacted me and they were extortionate. If you are going to call yourselves a comparison site you must ensure that there are enough companies going to respond in order to compare.
Compare my move says it will gather a number of reasonable quotes from local removal firms to send you and give you the freedom of choosing from the best to make the whole process easier. Quite simply, it doesn't. I was called by every company who wanted me to detail my items before giving me a quote. The process of running through that laborious list with a few local firms is something I could have chosen to do myself, I thought the point was I was given a ballpark figure by these companies for me to then choose from. A detailed quote could come later once I outlined exact requirements e.g. packing, dismantling own furniture etc
A 'stress free' site made several days very stressful as I was called throughout my work day by these endless firms. I wrote an email to compare my move to flag this and I never heard anything back. Completely unnecessary company that adds stress to an already tough time when moving, would not recommend.
We booked a removal service through this site. It was easy to use and we had several quotes for the removal service. However the site had no reviews or links to the companies that contacted us. That would be a useful addition so that you could compare the companies on more then just price.
As promised 3 removal companies have been in touch and we are in the process of reviewing quotes. Excellent result so far - thank you!
I thought I was going to get an immediate rough idea of price online. Instead, it told me that you were informing zero companies and then I was inundated with unwanted calls from many moving companies who wanted to come to my house to quote me. each company was very polite when i explained i just wanted a ball park figure and then emailed me. so it turned out ok but i was cross about my phone ringing a lot before i got what i wanted. it might be nice to give visitors to the site the choice of how to be contacted? plus it obviously was misleading when it said it would inform zero companies. final view - a good idea, a few glitches to sort out to make it more brill and then you will have a truly recommendable website.
The web site asked all the right questions that enabled the removal companies to give me a quote without me having to go through a long question and answer session.
I am not a very skilled web user and greatly appreciated the simplicity of the form.
I'd heard about these services and positive ones at that but I feel really let down that I've heard nothing back, no quotes, nothing. If this service is to make moving, an already stressful experience, less hassle then perhaps you check that the companies you use are contacting customers back with a quote!
I won't be using this service again, I'll be sticking to the old fashioned way of doing it myself.
Good website, had instant response by emails and telephone calls from companies in my local area. Was very pleased!
No sooner I'd put my details on, the phone started ringing and within a couple of days reps were around giving me quotes. The move was sorted within the week. I'd definitely recommend
This was a good service as it gave me a chance to send my details out to a number of movers in one go but most of them only responded with a very basic quote and asked me to go on to their website to get a more detailed quote, which meant I had to put in all my details again.
I used 'compare my move' and received 6 companies that provided quotes which listed different options set price or by hour which was helpful. The response was very quick. I was able to get a clear idea of how much I would want to be paying. However one company kept calling me, under cutting prices but and when I checked other review sites they did not receive good reviews. I ended up checking different sites to get more accurate reviews so I went with another company not one provided by compare my move but I felt I could trust, however they were at a similar price range to the ones quoted using compare my move.
Within 30 minutes of inputting my details i had 6 phone calls from companies that could fit in with my needs, 4 came to mine to give an estimate, i would of happily used any of them, all quoted cheaper than the big companies had. THe firm i went with 'city moves' were excellent.
I found the site a few days into my search for a removals company so it was quite hard to find. It's a great idea and well executed. The number of companies registered could do with being increased though, as the local company we went with in the end didn't even come up. I received replies from 4/5 companies emailed on my behalf.
All i have had is junk emails, and asking for ratings. I had one company contact me from this who are very expensive and the only one which came up on the companies in your area have never contacted me. So far I have yet to find anyone to assist with me move.
The site was easy to understand and the quotes received we're very competitive. The follow up email was polite with no pressure or hassling. I would recommend this to anyone looking to move.
I have searched high and lows to get a service that would make my move stress free.
Thanks to compare my move I have found a company that has made that possible they have packed my whole house whilst me working on my computer all arrived intact and each and every worker worked with a smile.
Couldn t have asked for a better service
Does exactly what you'd expect - you fill your details in, and before you know it you have a rang of quotes, which are then followed up by calls from the removals companies all keen to help you out. We couldn't fault it.
