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.

We used Purdies to move my mum from one house to another making use of the storage facilities inbetween. They were quick to respond to my initial inquiry. Helpful when undertaking the remote home survey for the quote and and the team dealing with the paperwork and bookings were great, staying helpful etc when we had to change our moving dates a few times. We also used the packing service, which was fantastic. What would have taken us a number of days to do ourselves took the team of 2 a few hours! Expertly packed and no breakages. Would be more than happy to use them again.

Thanks for the great review! You never quite realise how much stuff you have until you move! Like you said, our teams take only a few hours to pack what most people would take a week to pack! So in the long run, it usually makes sense to use our packing service for a completely stress free move!

From packing day to house to house removal the next day everything went like clockwork. The guys themselves were professional, helpful and cheerful. Purdies policy of charging 60% of total cost for a postponement of removal date is too much, even if it is in the small print. To find additional £600+ as a pensioner was a shock but I had little choice but to pay it.

Thanks for reviewing our services. I'm please to hear our teams are still working like clockwork. We do make it clear on the very first line of your quotation that these services are subject to several clauses, one of which being cancellation or postponement. We can only follow the terms and conditions that we abide by for the protection of both the consumer and provider. We are a business and we cannot be left with men in the yard with no work to pay them, hence why we have these standard policies in place to protect you and ourselves.

Neil made what was a very stressful time into something much more bearable. He reassured us and helped us through every stage of the removal process. As we were moving from the South Coast of England to Scotland it wasn’t straightforward, but Neil arranged everything for us and this took the pressure of us immensely. The two men Shug and Mike were the best, took everything in their stride and took a lot of work of my husband and I. We would have no hesitation in recommending Purdie’s Worldwide to anyone. Thank you for a brilliant service.
