Default Moving companies?

Hi everyone,
So we have had 4 removal companies out.
Anglo Pacific,
PSS,
Crown,
Constantine's.
Constantines is a no go as they were £1000 dearer than the others.
Anglo Pacific was the cheapest so thinking of going with them but was wondering if anyone had any recommendations or experience with these companies?
Any help and advice would be much appreciated

We have used both Crown and Anglo and both were fine. I don't think there is much difference.

Bear in mind that many are franchises so the Crown removals you use in Manchester will be different to the one in Bristol for example. We used Britannia and John Mason who both have different agents here in Australia.

Also worth taking independent insurance out. We have used Letton Percival twice and needed to claim once (very straightforward and quick payout) also Insure Your Move are recommended on here.

Thanks for the names of those companies, someone else had recommended we do that as well so was going to Google companies and the names you have given us has gave us a starting point 😊
