    Great service

  • 16 days ago

    When I arrived to collect my items (paper mattress covers), the warehouse worker brought out two plastic mattress covers. When I said that I had ordered paper ones, he said that the stock code on the order slip related to the plastic covers. Despite showing him my e-mail confirmation that I had ordered paper ones, he was still insistent that I was in the wrong. Customers cannot be expected to know items by the stock codes; if the website states, and shows images of, paper mattress covers, that's what I believe I am purchasing, irrespective of what the stock code is. It appears that the paper and plastic mattress covers have the same stock code online - and still do on your website - which is causing problems for the warehouse. I eventually managed to speak to someone more senior who brought out the paper covers for me. You must ensure that the stock codes for these two sets of products are correct, as it is clearly causing problems.

    Staff are extremely helpful at depot as well home working team. First time using the hiring services but felt that I know the company for several years.

    A far better idea to pack all your household items in than using flimsy cardboard boxes when moving house. Would certainly be my first choice of packing anything next time,plus the sturdiness of the crate gives your goods an added protection from damage .

    Superb service at right price.

    I used teacrate for moving home and it was the best decision. Sturdy, spacious crates that can be stacked up as you go along, with different sizes, no waste, great delivery and collection timing... It adds a few quid to your moving budget but, in the grand scheme of things, the benefits offset the cost by quite some margin. Also, their customer care is superb and they helped me fix some issues with the online payment. A happy customer.

    Good service The crates needed cleaning, and with the price of the service (£120 for delivery and collection) I would appreciate if the crates were squeaky clean (especially during a pandemic). To me, the advantages of crates are: convenience in the delivery, saving time for creating the boxes, and environmental. Bit if I need to spend five minutes to clean each crate, then the second advantage is lost

    Very smooth collection, crates are great. Was a bit slow on the return - probs Covid related (hanging on the phone for ages)

  • 6 months ago

    Boxes are great but the delivery was a bit extortionate.

    The guys at Livingston were great. Helped me load the crates into the car and when I was returning them, they were really good despite not being informed by Head Office the crates were coming back early.

    We saved a fortune on our move by using teacrate. As a family of four the 60 crates was spot on, although initially we thought we’d never fill them - so wrong. The extras like the cardboard wardrobes and hanger device were incredibly useful. The bubble wrap is ridiculously generous and we had a ton left over despite wrapping everything in it. Very happy and great service.
