I have been delighted by the service provided by McGimpseys.

Really appreciate the great service from McGimpsey's. Thank you very much. Mark.

Mr & Mrs ThompsonBangor via storage

Moving Crew - Michael Mortimer & Richard Nelson

We recently used McGimpsey Removals for their removal and storage service. I could not recommend them highly enough. Everything from the quality of their equipment and the friendliness and efficiency of the removal men themselves, to the excellent service provided by the customer service team, has been top notch. They treated all our belongings with utmost care and I was very impressed with their organisation and professionalism. If you want your move to be stress free and handled by professionals McGimpsey Removals should be your first choice.

Moving Crew - Stewart McCrea & Jack Fleming

Delighted with all aspects of the move. Everything very carefully loaded and unloaded. The two guys were extremely helpful and extremely well mannered. I was kind of sorry to see them leave as nothing was a bother. Everything put in correct rooms and very carefully handled, great guys.

We must commend Darren and Jack, they are extremely hard working and did a superb job. Upon delivery they were joined by Nelson and Alan whose work was of the same caliber.

Mr & Mrs DevlinBelfast to Edinburgh

Moving Crew - Simon Gourley, David Craig, Fergal Magee & Justin Horner

We used your service twice during the past year..once for a local Belfast house move and more recently to send some furniture to Edinburgh. On both occasions we were delighted with the service you provided, making the moves very stress free. We would most certainly recommend your company. Many thanks

Mr & Mrs FoxBelfast to Bath

Moving Crew - Simon Gourley, Craig McGimpsey, Richard Gordon & David Craig

I received the items in Bath. Both team members were polite, cheerful and careful bringing the items in and were kind enough to unpack the two items I was most concerned for, so that I could check they were undamaged. They also took the packaging away. It was a pleasure to deal with such pleasant men. How they managed to drive the enormous transport through Bath is a wonder! Our small load out of such a huge carrier... caused quite a stir in our street! Thank you

Mr ReynoldsCarrickfergus to Nottingham

Moving Crew - Trevor Brown, Justin Horner & David Donnelly

I just wanted to email to thank you for the excellent removal job yesterday. We were so impressed with Trevor, Justin, and David - who were professional and polite...very helpful...working very hard. They are a great asset and advertisement to your Company. Most often, people in your position only hear complaints, but I also think it important when people do a good job that their efforts are acknowledged and that their superiors know. I trust you will note this and also pass on our appreciation to that crew.

Mr McEvoyBallynahinch to London

Moving Crew - David Donnelly, Dylan Massey, Richard Gordon & Graeme McPhillips

I would highly recommend this company. They were exceptional in every way and nothing was ever an issue or problem with all I needed.

Many thanks.

Mrs TohillNewtownabbey to New Jersey, USA

Moving Crew - Colin Massey & Ryan Mawhinney

I am writing to let you know my shipment has arrived safely. I just want to offer my deepest gratitude to the two amazing men who packed my things. The table my late husband made me was quite fragile and they took their time to pack it carefully. It's arrived in one piece and I am eternally grateful to them and their hard work. Please thank them for me. Your company has been amazing and I couldn't have asked for better service.

Mr MillsBangor to Essex

Moving Crew - Graeme McPhillips, Richard Duckett, Christopher Bell & Richard Nelson

The crew arrived as agreed to collect our goods and were courteous and efficient, they arrived on time and treated our stuff with care. On the other side the guys couldn't have been more helpful. They arrived on time and it was great to see friendly smiling faces from home. They again treated our goods with respect and got them into the apartment safe and sound. This is the first time we have used your company and we would definitely recommend you to anyone needing this service - thank you to all involved.

Mr & Mrs GibsonEdinburgh to Belfast

Moving Crew - Richard Gordon, Nelson Farrell & Chris Bell

Fantastic service from start to finish. Despite our flat being located in a small gated complex, McGimpseys went out of their way to accommodate this. Everything went as promised. Our goods were collected and received right on time. Many thanks again to Michael for all the help with our move from Edinburgh to Belfast. You made our relocation a lot less stressful. Would highly recommend McGimpseys.

Ms HannamBahrain to County Monaghan, Ireland

Mr JohnstonLocal move within Bangor

Moving Crew - Michael Mortimer & Graeme McPhillips

From the moment I visited McGimpseys offices to agree a contract for removal and delivery I was very impressed by the professionalism of all staff. There is evidence of considerable staff training to achieve excellence in everything the Company sets out to achieve. I have already highly recommended McGimpseys to a relative who is due to move house.

Mr & Mrs WestDromore into storage

Mr & Mrs McBrideCarrickfergus to Gloucester

Mr & Mrs Keough Larne to Dundee via storage

Moving Crew - Richard Gordon & David Spence

Mr NimniBelfast to London

Moving Crew - David Craig, Nelson Farrell, Gary Lee & Darren Gillespie

I want to take the opportunity to say how wonderful your service was. The guys that collected the stuff were really marvellous, everything was well packed and organised. I was very stressed and the guys calmed me down. The packing was excellent, and while I am only half way through the unpacking, everything arrived ok. Also the guys that delivered were brilliant, could you convey to them my appreciation.

Mr & Mrs McFarlaneComber to New Zealand

Moving Crew - David Donnelly, Richard Nelson & Gareth Hosick

I have worked in the industry of providing services to the public/end users for over 30 years and 20 of those years was with my own business and I can say the staff that my wife and I have had contact with from your company has been suburb from the young lady in the office who has answered EVERY question we asked with a smile while being very professional. The guys who collected our belongings furniture etc. were very friendly and hard working and again at all times with a smile and knowledgeable. I would safely say we will be recommending your company to any and all who ask how our move was.

Ms GalloisBelfast to East Sussex

Moving Crew - David Donnelly, Richard Nelson, Stewart McCrea & David Love

How do you spell "E F F I C I E N C Y ?" It was most satisfying to work with Michael Dunbar, a true professional who replied to all my emails in the minutes they arrived. He was very reassuring all the way and nothing was a problem. Excellent service, excellent client relations and a refreshing can-do attitude (a rare commodity today!) from beginning to end. Can recommend this company 100%.

Mr BestBangor to Ballyclare

Moving Crew - Michael Mortimer, Colin Massey, Stewart McCrea & David Love

Mr HulmeLondon to Belfast

Moving Crew - Stewart McCrea & David Love

I was really impressed with McGimpseys in all respects. I received several quotes from different removal companies and McGimpseys was one of the cheapest. The customer service was excellent - all of my emails and queries and quotes were answered quickly (the lack of this service was why I chose to not use another company, who ignored my queries). The actual removal and delivery went without a hitch - on time, done quickly, and both movers were friendly and helpful. I will definitely be using McGimpseys again!

Mr & Mrs PowerSurrey to South Belfast

Moving Crew - Darius Stebuliauskas, Colin Massey & Craig McGimpsey

This was a fantastic service! I would like to thank Shirley especially who was kind, patient and very helpful in answering all my emails and calls. Colin Massey, Darius and Craig (crew) were equally fantastic! They all made what was a very stressful time for us go smoothly and without any problems. They really took the stress out of moving, were kind, funny and extremely helpful. I would most certainly recommend your services to others. Great job!

Mrs NewsteadNewtownards to Devon

Mr & Mrs ShahBedford to Newtownabbey

Moving Crew - Michael Mortimer & Colin Massey

I just wanted to say what a pleasure it was to have your removal company today! Colin and Michael were so hard working and careful. Nothing was any trouble and I was so impressed with their cheery attitude! I have moved many times in my lifetime but this was the best experience by far!

Mrs TaylorLocal move within Bangor

Moving Crew - Cahal Gilmore & Darren Gillespie

McGimpseys are a top class company, have used them several times myself and recommended them to others. The office staff and crew are most thorough and professional, have a great caring attitude toward the customer and completely take over and put us completely at ease. They take the whole stress out of moving. 100% professional! Great job well done!

Mrs DowdallNewtownards to Australia

Moving Crew - David Donnelly & Nelson Farrell

My experience has been very positive.The consultants who dealt with me were very helpful, considerate and supportive. I felt that the primary/principal consultant Catriona Mann went out of her way to help me especially due to the fact I had limited internet access. I would be happy to recommend McGimpseys to anyone else wishing to transport items internationally.

Mr & Mrs CoulterCobham to Belfast

Moving Crew - Malcolm Power, Graeme McPhillips, Stewart McCrea, Justin Horner, Ryan Mawhinney & Chris Flynn

We recently moved from Cobham to Belfast and put our belongings in storage for 4 weeks before packing up a second house in Belfast. I have to say how thoroughly impressed I was with the service we received. I would especially like to mention Shirley who came up with a very competitive quote and was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the whole process, nothing was too much trouble. We also received great service in particular in Cobham from Graeme and his colleague. They worked very hard and very efficiently and were quick and very tidy. We cannot speak highly enough of your service and will certainly recommend to friends.

Mr & Mrs McCartneyBangor to Africa

Moving Crew - David King & Richard Nelson

This particular move was for preparing a piano for overseas shipment and storage until time of collection. We have been using your company for house moves here, storage and removal to overseas since 1990. We are very satisfied with the help, efficiency and courtesy always extended to us and have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and others who require this speciality.

Ms StrainLondonderry to Birmingham

Moving Crew - Cahal Gilmore, Richard Nelson, Ian Love & David Spence

Excellent service...the collection staff were very courteous, professional and efficient. They kept me updated on the expected time of arrival for collection of my possessions...good packaging for safe delivery of all items. The delivery staff experienced the same problems as I had done the previous day with issues with the sat- navs instructions in Birmingham. They managed with the challenges professionally, kept me updated and informed on their expected time of delivery and locations. They were very friendly, courteous and professional. Michael who coordinated the whole process was extremely professional and informative at all times. I have relocated on many occasions between countries and the U.K and I would highly recommend your company for value, excellent value for services, guaranteed safe guard of personal possessions in transit alongside utmost friendliness, courteously and professionalism of all your team concerned. Thank you...and I will be using you again if relocating...I will not hesitate in recommending you to family and friends.

Ms HeibDublin to The Netherlands

Moving Crew - David King, David Spence, Trevor Brown & Justin Horner

I would thoroughly recommend McGimpseys to anyone and I would definitely use them again in future. Regarding the scoring on overall performance, I selected 6 for all categories as I felt that both the pick-up and delivery drivers were all helpful and polite, and I couldn't have expected anymore from them, but I would to make special mention of the consultant, Caroline Johnston, who managed the move. Caroline was so helpful throughout the move, always knowledgeable and quick to reply to all my questions (of which they were many!), she also kept me up to date regularly, often without out me sending an email first. Sorting out our payment wasn't straightforward as we were paying through my partners company, but she helped us get it sorted very easily. During a very stressful time it was very nice to know that all our belongings were in safe hands and I felt like I was constantly kept in the loop and knew what was happening. Fantastic service all round, couldn't be happier!

Ms ScottDenmark to Carrickfergus

Moving Crew - Steven Atchison, David Spence, Cahal Gilmore & Graeme McPhillips

I used your services because I was moving from Denmark to N.Ireland. Right through the process, I have felt I was in good hands. Right from the start Caroline kept me informed about the process. On collection the two man crew were excellent and also on delivery a lovely two man crew. The whole experience has been wonderful and I have told family and friends of my experience, a big thank you!

Mrs NeelyDublin to Belfast

Moving Crew - Malcolm Power, David Spence & Ricky Nelson

This is the third time we have used McGimpseys and every time we have had such a great experience. It's so uncommon to have so much interaction with so many different people in a company and for everyone of them to be so professional and kind. Please pass on my thanks to the men and I will thank them in person when they come to deliver the hall stand and lamp. Many many thanks.

Mr & Mrs FogartyLocal move within Belfast via storage

Moving Crew - Michael Mortimer, Richard Nelson & Colin Bates

Thanks again to the excellent crew who helped us move at Halloween. Time and again the men acted above and beyond my expectations. They have such a tough, physical job and working with demanding customers like me - not easy. However, they never complained, were always extremely polite and good humoured. Really an exceptional bunch of guys. I hope I won't be moving for sometime now but if I do I will always be using McGimpseys. Please pass on my thanks and very best wishes to main team Ricky, Colin, Michael and also the other men who helped them over the 4 days. I hope you realise how lucky you are to have such great folks working for you! Thanks again and best wishes.

Ms ConneallySomerset to Dundalk

Moving Crew - Stewart McCrea, Justin Horner, John Colligan & Colin Bates

My "worldy goods" arrived in Dundalk yesterday. I would like to take this opportunity to say a HUGE Thank You to Michael Dunbar personally for how he dealt with my move. I am very impressed with your service. I have recommended you and your company to people who may contact you in the future. Can you also offer my thanks to Stewart and Justin, and to whoever did the drop off in Dundalk. PLEASE copy this email to the owners of McGimpseys because they should appreciate their unbelievable staff. Kindest Regards and many Thanks for making my stressful time that bit better.

Mr & Mrs GirvanBangor to Dubai

Moving Crew - David Donnelly, Malcolm Power, Richard Nelson, Craig McGimpsey, Andrew McFarland, Simon Gourley & Darren Gillespie

Dear Stephen / Campbell / Peter & Paul, Many thanks for completing the pack and load phase of our move to Dubai. I'd just like to say that your crew were excellent in performing their task. I have to say that we were quite disorganised and unprepared for the move, but your team handled everything very well and coped with everything we threw at them. At no time did they make us feel that we were causing hassle or unnecessary work (although I'm sure we were), and they were very professional and hard working throughout the 3 days. Please pass on our sincerest appreciation. Kind regards, Robert & Theresa Girvan

Miss McCarthyColeraine to Melbourne, Australia

Moving Crew - David King & David Spence

The move was excellently managed and the consultant at McGimpseys was exceptionally helpful and very patient with all my questions and problems. Thank you Catriona. The removal teams were very efficient and helpful both at the collection and delivery end. I used McGimpseys and recommend them again. I used them on a recommendation and have since spoken to several people in Melbourne who have moved from NI with them. All are happy customers.

Mr & Mrs BryceLocal move within Newtownards

Moving Crew - Ian Love & Richard Sherriff

I would like to record the excellent service and attention we received from the crew members.The job proved larger than I had anticipated - but they dealt with the move efficiently and with good humour. During the delivery of our furniture my wife fell and received a head wound - while I was away. The crew immediately provided first aid and, when I returned, advised me to take her to minor injuries. It was helpful that Richard, one of the crew, had been a medic for 20 years! Ian and Richard were an excellent team and I feel deserve praise and thanks - and at least a bonus! We had a long and tiring day but I feel that your team did everything to make things easy for us. Thanks lads.

Ms GowBuckinghamshire to Westmeath

Moving Crew - Ian Love, Colin Bates, Richard Nelson & Justin Horner

I organised the move of a piano for some relatives, but was not present when it was collected or delivered. So I have filled in what I can from what the two families told me; both were very pleased with the teams who came. The only hitch was that the delivery in Ireland was a day late because the lorry broke down in Cork. Luckily this didn't matter too much. I personally was very impressed with the office staff. Shirley very efficiently organised the move, and although I was making the arrangements, and another relative was paying the bill, and neither of us lived at either of the houses involved, there were no mistakes about addresses, phone numbers etc. and I had quite thought there would be. I spoke to at least two other staff when Shirley was not in the office and they were equally on the ball, passed on messages etc. I wish all offices were as efficient!

Mr & Mrs CabatinganBallymena to Mareeba, Australia

Moving Crew - Cecil Kelly & Darren Gillespie

The company made our move from Northern Ireland to Mareeba, Australia very smooth. They arranged for everything and even their partners here in Aus was commendable. Our goods sat at storage for a year and since all were packed to standard, they arrived as though they have been just packed yesterday! Our initial contact with them (the consultant who came to our house) was a very pleasant experience & their price was the most reasonable among all those that have given me quotes. The staff who came to pack the stuff for us were very organized, helpful & very professional. Our consultant (Ms. C. Mann) was so knowledgeable about their work. They answered to queries promptly & were always willing to offer any assistance needed. I could not commend them highly enough. THANK YOU!
