Whats wrong with hiring a van, much cheaper

Thousand jobs in peril at Pickfords

BRITAIN’s biggest removals firm, Pickfords, could go through a controversial “pre-pack” administration, putting 1,100 jobs at risk.

  • I made the mistage of using Pickfords 4 years ago. Their insurance paid up, but their staff were poor, loads of scuffs, breakages. Nowhere near the Pickfords I remember 15 years ago. I’m not suprised that they are having trouble.

    They were always hideously overpriced – my local firm charged me a tenth of the Pickfords quote, and did an excellent job.
