I had to arrange the clearance of my mother’s flat in Edinburgh prior to its sale following her moving into a home. This was obviously a stressful time for me - and a difficult task as I live in Vancouver Canada which is 8 hours behind the UK. Having been recommended Thistle Removals by Balfour&Manson who were arranging the flat sale, I contacted Geoff by email, who responded quickly with details of the services they offer. The compressive package was exactly what I needed; they would empty the flat, take the saleable items to a reputable auctioneer, the recyclable items to the Salvation Army, and the remainder to landfill, and finally clean the flat for the new owners. The timing was very tight and there was no room for problems - I was able to be in the UK for 2 days only around the house sale, and the clearance had to be completed from start to finish the day before the new owners moved in. I am 'old school’, so to me, when they turned up in two large smart vans at 7:55 for an 8am start, I was instantly reassured. I left them to it, and returned later in the day to find the house empty and clean, and the saleable items were later dropped off at the sale room as planned. I then had some temporary problems myself with the international bank transfer, so was a few days late in payment, and they were flexible and understanding about it. It occurred to me that they had no guarantee that I would not just leave the country without paying, and so that they trusted me is a rare commodity these days that I value very highly. Consequently, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Thistle Removals to anyone - their service was exactly as expected, they were polite and understanding, efficient, and bang on time. 5 stars from me for all aspects of the job.

Customer Review

I have worked with Geoff Simpson and Thistle Removals Company Edinburgh for some twelve years when I was Client Welfare Manager at Balfour & Manson, Solicitors. During that time we developed an excellent working relationship with Thistle Removals Edinburgh which was particularly marked by our ability to have absolute trust and confidence in this removal companies honesty and personal integrity. I would commission Thistle Removals Edinburgh to clear houses and frequently to actually help individual clients to make the move from home to Residential Nursing or Sheltered Accommodation. This was always difficult and sensitive work and it was notable how seriously Thistle Removals Edinburgh took their responsibilities and adapting procedures to accommodate particular circumstances or needs of the clients. We developed a system of Thistle Removals Edinburgh actually helping clients set up their new accommodation in the Nursing Home or Sheltered House and I certainly think it is true to say that very many clients came to look upon Geoff Simpson the owner of Thistle Removals Edinburgh as an important support worker helping them to make this difficult transition. Thistle Removals Company Edinburgh were also extremely useful in net working with other trades and agencies and taking responsibility to manage small projects which would require the involvement of other trades. Thistle Removals Edinburgh accounting and general financial management was always excellent. There were a number of occasions on which I had to proceed absolutely on the basis of trust and I am delighted to record that there was never an occasion on which I believed this trust to be misplaced. I am happy to provide this testimonial for Geoff and his team at Thistle Removals Edinburgh
