I have moved quite a lot internationally and never had to make any major insurance claims before now. The packing was so so bad. Artwork packed with garden stuff and broken (after repeatedly asking them to pack it carefully), shoes just scooped up and thrown into boxes. All clothes crumbled in boxes rather than wardrobe boxes etc. Where they get their accreditation from on their letterheaded paper I do not know. Do not use Purdie Worldwide.

Hi Marion, thanks for taking the time to write your review. We're very sorry you've had to endure a below standard move. I can assure you that this was an isolated incident, and does not reflect our usual level of service. Fortunately the majority of your goods arrived intact, and it would appear that only a few boxes had been incorrectly packed. As such, the member of staff who failed to pack these boxes correctly, is no longer with us. Thankfully insurance was taken, and this issue has been dealt with in a swift and professional manner. If you have any further questions, please do get in touch.
Great service and Value for money

Phoned other removal firms for quotes around our needs at the time of moving, and Purdie’s came In much cheaper and we’re very flexible with moving dates and storage. The also supplied on loan garmet boxes on the day, which doesn’t sound much but is one of those over looked things at the time. Also being able to purchase what we needed in terms of packing material from their shop made things a lot easier as well. Highly recommended!

The two men arrived at my house in the morning of the move, dismantled my bed and packed various boxes & bags into the van. They were very efficient and were finished a little earlier than planned but happily waited nearby for me to get the keys for new house. They arrived not long after I got the keys and got to work rebuilding my bed & unpacking all the stuff from the van. It was a great service and made the move as smooth as it could be especially considering I had an 8 month baby and had had a difficult week with a bereavement. Having my bed ready for me that night was the best feeling.

Purdie provided an excellent service delivering furniture to one property and uplifting additional furniture from another location for storage. The removers were prompt and professional and kept me updated on arrival times etc.

First experience using this Company to not only move home but also location. My assessment of the service we received in one word, excellent. From start to finish I found all contact with the people who work for Purdie Worldwide professional and courteous. We also required to store our furniture and no damages or breakages. I would recommend Purdie Worldwide and would certainly use them again. A professional, prompt and efficient complete removal and storage service.

Had Purdie and Sons move my belongings via storage for a week. An exceptional service. All of the people that were sent out were brilliant and did a very thorough and quick job. Would highly recommend this to anyone. Top class!

This was the second of two moves which I contacted Purdie about - and in both cases, the work was done efficiently. The team got a very heavy piano up an awkward stair - they all deserve medals! Dealing with the company prior tot he moves was straightforward as well - I'd recommend them.

This company moved house for us and made it as easy and as stress free as it could be. Their assessor came a few weeks before gave us advice about packing and sent a clear breakdown of costs. On the day two men arrived bang on time and from then everything went smoothly and we were in our new house by 4 o clock . Lads were exceptionally good all day ,and office team pleasant. I’ve no plans to move house again soon but would certainly use Purdie Removals if I did.Not cheap but worth it.

Purdie have been a pleasure to deal with from start to finish over recent weeks. All the staff I have had dealings with including the office staff have been very helpful, quick and have been totally reliable. I would like to particularly call out Craig from the Broxburn office who was outstanding. I would have no hesitation in recommending Purdie to others.
