Helped my girlfriends brother and his family move a few years ago, Liverpool to Liverpool, not far but a full house of stuff. His wife had booked a cheap removal firm online based in the Midlands, we’re talking £150 tops. Two guys in a transit van rock up first thing in the morning, walk into the house, take one look around at the amount of furniture and boxes, say they’re just going to reverse the van up to the front door, only to just drive off, never to be seen again.
We laugh about it now but at the time was pretty stressful. They managed to get a local firm in next day for about £500, four lads and a massive truck did the lot in a few hours.
During the same weekend, the grandparents were also over to look after their kids round at our flat whilst everyone else packed up the house. Grandad (my future father in law) told our unstable steroid loving neighbour to piss off after he got told off for chucking a cigar butt in the bushes outside. Very nearly came to blows as neither was backing down, kids (3 and 5 at the time) crying with all the shouting. Girlfriend had to step in and diffuse the situation. Pretty scary stuff.
Good luck with your move!
