Moving from Glasgow to Borders


We have just bid on a property in the Borders and we are looking for a reputable, reliable removal company who can do a full pack and unpack service and who have decent reviews.

I’ve been ploughing through all sorts of companies and I’m at the end of my tether. We are both disabled and are moving from an 1st floor upstairs flat to a ground floor. Reliability is key here because of our disabilities. I suppose if all else fails there is always Pickfords but iirc they were extortionate last time.

Any help gratefully received.

    Does it offend you that I forgot to do this and that perhaps due to my disability I may have memory problems? If it bothers you so much feel free to update it with a link to this thread.

    I haven’t sold my previous property. We are lucky to be mortgage free so have the luxury of not needing 2 mortgages. The one we have bid on is shared ownership. I’m hoping to sell back to the local council as my property is ex council stock and our council has a buy back scheme. They won’t even start any process till the property is empty. Catch 22.

    Why on earth am I explaining myself. I asked a simple question re removal companies which has absolutly nothing to do with any other thread.

    I have used Glasgow Removals a few times and found them very good and not too dear.

    Mcclellands are very good. Have used them in a business environment and they are very good. All the removal guys who show up are very friendly and professional.
