Default Anyone used Chess Removals?

Hi all
I've been getting quotes for shipping......
Has anyone used Chess removals?
Their quote is more than half the price quoted by some companies!
A big difference, just wondered if anyone has experience of them

Thanks

That family who moved out over the road from us as few days ago (see green-eyed monster thingo!!) they used Chess. The packing looked really good and everything was wrapped neatly!

They seemed to be taking care putting it into the container and it was all solidly packed in.

Christ...I'm a nosey neighbour!! I was just sat pining at the wagon through the window!!!

Oh I had to laugh at that cos its exactly what I would have done, peeking out the window looking at all their stuff going into the lorry and pining to jump in it!

Giggling still!

We used Chess at one point I remember, not too bad but now we always do our own packing, mainly cos I hate finding a tea set/dinner set split between half a dozen boxes, I can also put the stuff we aren't going to use like special stuff in certain marked boxes so I know I haven't got to unpack them straight away at other end. You can see I have done this a bit ah!

I Work for a UK based removal company that is part of the same international network - UniGroup Worldwide UTS - as Chess. When we send shipments to Australia Chess always look after our customers at destination. We would always recommend them as they provide a consistent high quality service both internationally and within Australia.

hope that helps!
