Mr & Mrs ClydeSouth Africa to Banbridge

Moving Crew - Martin Pollock & Craig McGimpsey

My husband and I took delivery this morning of goods shipped from South Africa. We would like to compliment the delivery team on their punctuality, friendliness, effortless efficiency (delivery was quiet and speedy and goods arrived in good order), willingness of attitude and attention to detail (every request and instruction detail picked up on and adhered to). I believe in giving credit where credit is due. How refreshing - we can highly recommend these services!

Mrs McConnellNewtownards to Bangor

Moving Crew - David Spence, Martin Pollock, Darren Gillespie & James Boyd

I just wanted to drop a line to say a massive thank you. The guys that dealt with our move were absolutely superb. Considering the amount of bits and bobs to move and the horrendous weather (gales and wind) they made an extremely stressful situation a lot brighter and easier. The guys where helpful in so many ways, going above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. They are an absolute credit to the company. I just wanted to pass on my thanks to the four of them and to McGimpseys for a first class service. Should anyone I know be moving in future I won't hesitate to recommend the company.

Mr & Mrs GoldthorpeLocal move within Donaghadee

Moving Crew - Cahal Gilmore, James Boyd, Martin Pollock & Stephen Ramsey

I just wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation to all the guys who moved us on Friday. They did a sterling job, in horrible weather conditions and I'm pleased to say everything was done so professionally and courteously. Please extend my sincere thanks to the guys. I would also like to thank Ruth for her help and assistance - which was much appreciated, as moving can be stressful and you all helped to minimize that as much as possible.

Mr & Mrs MatthewsBelfast to Dundonald via storage

Moving Crew - Andrzej Wawrzacz & Brian McNeill

At very short notice this company bent over backwards for us. Very professional movers with covers for everything. They stored our bedroom furniture and put it in place when we were ready to move into our new home. I wouldn't use anyone else. Excellent service!

Ms CarringtonGalway to Birmingham

Moving Crew - Warren Cullen, Damian Veale, David Craig & Richard Duckett

David Bradford was really helpful and professional throughout the proceedings. The delivery crew were very efficient and pleasant. I will be very happy to use the company again and also recommend to others.

Church Mission Society IrelandAirfreight from Zambia to Dunmurry

Moving Crew - David Spence

It has been a difficult time to make an international move like the one we have made and McGimpsey Brothers have risen to and above the challenge, full marks to all, especially Catriona who worked above and beyond the call of duty to get everything sorted out.

Mr & Mrs BishopBelfast to Yorkshire

Moving Crew - Richard Duckett, Dylan Massey, Ryan Brooks & Thomas Barton

We found Jason particularly helpful as we tried to negotiate this two part move to England over Christmas and during a pandemic and the inevitable delays this caused. Thanks guys!

Ms FoxComber to Glasgow via storage

Moving Crew - Cahal Gilmore, James Boyd, Gary Lee, Stephen Ramsey, Richard Duckett & Christopher Nicholl

Michael Collins has been truly exceptional: he organised a 3 in 1 removal for me, plus rental of a store, always remaining calm, knowledgeable, practical & highly professional. I could not have managed all of this without him. He is truly an amazing asset to your company. Nothing has proved problematic to him; all changes he took in his stride and skillfully found solutions to my complicated removal. Wonderful service from experts. So careful and a professional team!

Mr & Mrs ParrSussex to Belfast via storage

Moving Crew - Thomas Barton & Jack Henderson

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your teams. The communication from you in relation to when and where things were and would be delivered was great. Exactly as you said it arrived in Belfast yesterday where I flew to for the day to check it into the storage facility with our furniture from our home here in England. The team that arrived yesterday were on time, professional and courteous - something we saw right from the very start all the way through to delivery. All items have arrived safely. Please pass on our grateful thanks to all of your teams along the way. Have a lovely Christmas and I hope for us all that 2021 is a better healthier year. Thank you once again!

Mr & Mrs BartonBangor to storage in Sussex

Moving Crew - Gary Lee & Dylan Harper

Fantastic move amid the Covid crisis and imminent lockdown. Arrival on collection day a little late but more than made up for that with level of service. We cannot thank you enough for keeping to schedule and getting our furniture to our storage facility the following week as promised. We only wish that you did removals within the mainland as we would certainly use you when we are finally able to retrieve the furniture and move into our future home.

Mr & Mrs CarsonDownpatrick to Dallas, Texas

Moving Crew - Martin Pollock, Darren Gillespie & Richard Duckett

McGimpseys is an exceptional removals firm. You can tell they have years of experience in providing professional service. Their response times are prompt, they give you options to consider when planning your move, they provide a seamless service from booking through to delivery. BUT the most important piece of their service is their PEOPLE: courteous, professional and friendly, this really matters. In all, we have used McGimpsey Removals 5 times, including 3 international moves - we wouldn't use any other company.

Mr & Mrs WilsonLocal move within Lisburn

Moving Crew - Dylan Harper, Martin Pollock, Stephen Ramsey, James Boyd, Dylan Massey, Craig McGimpsey & Lewis Curragh

The large team that handled our move over three days were nothing short of exceptional. From Stephen McGimpsey himself surveying, to the team arriving like warriors, I have nothing but compliments and admiration. Lead by Dylan Harper they never stopped smiling no matter how many times they were asked to go beyond the call of duty, which they did that and more. I can't praise McGimpseys or the team we got highly enough - no wonder they are top of their game...

Mr BarszczewskiCarrickfergus to Germany

Moving Crew - Michael Collins, Gary Lee & James Boyd

Thank you so much! I cannot overstate how helpful you and your team were during this process. What was a hugely important element in a monumental task of overseas relocation of 15 years’ worth of family life has been done smoothly and professionally. I appreciate your help and responsiveness at every stage of the process – these two factors certainly ensured peace of mind during what was a period of very taxing few weeks.

Mr SimpsonCrumlin to New Zealand

Moving Crew - Andy Wawrzacz & David Bradford

Just wanted to drop a note to thank you and your team for yesterdays collection. I can't speak high enough about how professional the guys were. Very efficient and conscious of our current Covid situation. They wore their PPE all day and ensured social distancing was maintained. Please pass this on to the guys.

Mr & Mrs CraythorneLocal move within Ballymena over 2 days

Moving Crew - Martin Pollock, Cahal Gilmore, Graeme McPhillips, Richard Duckett, James Boyd & Christopher Nicholl

We would like to convey our sincere thanks to McGimpsey Removals for the great service they provided on our recent full pack and move. Credit and praise must really be given especially to Martin and to his crew who were always polite, professional and items were packed to the highest specifications. You have great staff there and we would have no hesitation in recommending this crew to other family and friends. Also, thank you Ruth for all the logistics and working the dates out to suit us. Much appreciated!

Mrs QuinnManchester to Galway via storage

Moving Crew - Stewart McCrea, David Love, Vaidas Zitkevicius & Richard Duckett

Wonderful service, polite, efficient crew who were very helpful - reassembled the bed base, the couch legs and positioned the dining table carefully where I asked. I was unable to travel to the UK for collection due to pandemic restrictions but great packing service provided in my absence. Would highly recommend this service to anyone!

Ms O'Malley-ReaBangor to Netherlands via storage

Moving Crew - Colin Massey, Gary Lee & Aaron McQuiston

We had an AMAZING experience with McGimpseys. From storage to the actual relocation. The guys were all lovely. The company was great with keeping in contact with emails answered promptly. Nothing was to much to ask. I want to thank everyone for making the relocation less hassle!

Ms O'ConnorUSA to Portstewart

Moving Crew - Andy Wawrzacz & Christopher Nicholl

I am absolutely delighted with the service provided by McGimpsey Brothers (Removals) Limited - from the very first time I reached out about my transatlantic move through the entire process, I felt extremely well informed and supported and a special word of thanks to Catriona Mann for her prompt responses to my emails and keeping me informed especially during the uncertain times of the Covid pandemic. The entire process, booking the move, online invoicing and payment options, delivery and collection of my U-Crate (from UPakWeShip USA), arranging storage and organising delivery - all went smoothly and took much of the stress out of the move. Thank you so much!

Mr & Mrs MaschlerDonegal to Nebraska, USA

Moving Crew - Martin Pollock & Graeme McPhillips

I can say without reservation the service provided by men sent by McGimpseys at collection was outstanding. Most impressive was the way they carefully wrapped all our items. Overall, they were knowledgeable, efficient, helpful and friendly. We hope and expect that the same will apply upon delivery. Also, I want McGimpseys to know how pleased we were with the service we received from Catriona Mann during the time we were arranging the move. She always responded promptly and was very helpful in all aspects.

Mr McGuiganMexico to Belfast

Moving Crew - Colin Massey, Jack Henderson & William Brown

Colin, Jack and William were superb. Their attitude, manners, service and co-operation couldn't have been better. They done a fabulous job and are a credit to your company. Also, thanks to Ruth - excellent support and communication. Everything went perfectly well today. Please make sure you pass my kind regards onto the team and thank them again on my behalf.

Ms GibneyAylesbury to Newtownards

Moving Crew - David Craig, Graeme McPhillips, Dylan Harper & David Love

I could not find fault with anything in the whole process. Michael Collins listened and understood my requirements. Collection and delivery had all been arranged with me to meet my time frame. From first contact with Michael through to delivery all went as planned. Thank you. FIRST CLASS SERVICE!

Mr GreerBelfast to Essex

Moving Crew - Stewart McCrea & Jack Smyth

I have had some valuable items in storage with you for four years. They were recently shipped and delivered to our new home. Jason Whiteside managed the agreement and was knowledgeable, professional, courteous and very helpful. The delivery men treated the contents, including my father's piano - which to me is priceless - with skill and respect. Everyone has been very helpful indeed.

Mr & Mrs ShawEnniskillen to Spain

Moving Crew - William Gowan & Colin Massey

All McGimpseys personnel were professional in their attitude, appearance and demeanour. They answered all queries promptly and comprehensively. Catriona was exceptional in the service she delivered in a time of such global flux and was patient and understanding as the situation involving an international move remained fluid due to Covid-19. Colin (assessor), William and Colin (collection crew) also deserve worthy commendation. The entire process could not have gone any better and at a more than competitive market rate. I would not hesitate in recommending McGimpseys to family and friends and have already done so.

Mr & Mrs SlaterImport from Canada to Newtownards & Somerset

Moving Crew - Daniel Banke & Justin Horner

Everyone we dealt with in Canada and Northern Ireland were terrific. Shirley Stokesberry was truly outstanding and so accommodating to our requests. Not very often you get someone in today's world who goes the extra step. Many thanks to all your staff in whatever capacity they looked after our goods.

Mr & Mrs McCreeryCrossgar to Lisburn

Moving Crew - Warren Cullen, Martin Pollock & Darren Gillespie

I must say that the three guys were amazing, so courteous, pleasant, nothing a problem to them - they are an absolute credit to the company. Please forward this email to the Directors because if it was my company I would be so proud to read it. From my first phone call, and respect to you for following up the enquiry - that's the proper way to get sales. I thank you all involved and would highly recommend your company.

Mr & Mrs ThompsonDromore to Shropshire

Moving Crew - Daniel Banke & Richard Duckett

Daniel and Richard delivered the goods and they were awesome. Both were professional and friendly and worked like absolute troopers, I was impressed with the level of service and I would be happy to use your company again. Our house was pretty fiddly to get to with such a large truck, but your guys were able to get the job done without any fuss. Thank you.

Mr & Mrs HoskinLisburn to Devon

Moving Crew - David Craig & Justin Horner

Just to say thank you for providing such an excellent service organising our move to Devon. In difficult circumstances we really appreciated the support and professionalism shown by you and all your colleagues, expertly packing, organising storage and a special mention to David Craig and Justin Horner who worked so hard to deliver our furniture on a hot day and in a friendly supportive way.

Mr & Mrs SidonioKent to Letterkenny

Moving Crew - Richard Gordon, Dylan Harper, Cahal Gilmore & Andrzej Wawrzacz

Just wanted to thank you (Jason & Michael) and the team for the excellent service we received. It was a big move and from start to finish you have been superb and very reassuring. We are delighted to have received our contents and want to thank the lads at both ends that carried it in and out. Thank you so much and I would be more than happy to recommend you and use you in the future.

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.

Florence LynchDublin to Australia

Moving Crew - Dylan Harper & David Spence

The boys were highly professional, had a great sense of humour which helped ease the day and were super efficient. They obviously knew what they were doing and everything went smoothly. They also went out of their way to ensure that I was happy with the way things were going. I have used three removals companies in recent years and McGimpseys were by far the best.

Ms StrainLondonderry to Birmingham

Moving Crew - Cahal Gilmore & 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.

Mr & Mrs PulmanDublin to North Carolina

Moving Crew - Martin Pollock, Darren Gillespie & David Spence

The whole team were outstanding- professional in every aspect. Martin, Darren and David were a joy to work with and did an outstanding job on the physical removal. Catriona was pleasant and efficient, providing timely responses and information and was a terrific ambassador for the Company. Having moved about the world frequently it is not an over- estimate to say McGimpseys are the best Removal Company we have used. Thank you.

Cara HollowayBelfast to Newtownards

Moving Crew - Stewart McCrea & David Spence

David and Stewart who moved me today couldn’t have been better. So friendly and helpful and very patient with my son who wanted to help. I would definitely recommend McGimpsey Removals after my experience today and I think the two guys are fab!

David HolmansCarrickfergus to Kent

Moving Crew - Gary Lee, David Love & Vaidas Zitkevicius

Gary and David who were there for both parts of the move were exemplary in all aspects. Prompt and deescalated a stressful time by their cool, calm and relaxed approach to the situation. Vaidas who had just recently started with you, was on collection. He was equally as efficient and polite. All 3 men in my view are a credit to your company and deserve recognition for their approach to 'getting the job done'. Jason was outstanding in his involvement.

Mr & Mrs WittsDonaghadee to Plymouth

Moving Crew - Warren Cullen, Colin Massey & Richard Duckett

Jason Whiteside was our move consultant and we can't praise him enough. This was a very stressful move for many reasons and he went out of his way to make the process run smoothly. Warren and Colin did an exceptional job on collection of our goods. Warren and Richard were fantastic with our delivery. The whole process went without a hitch, so thank you to all concerned for making our move less stressful.

Mr & Mrs FalkinghamAustria to Donaghadee

From my first phone call and to date, the entire staff plus your agents were absolutely brilliant. I would like to make special mention of the service I received from Lauren King. Lauren helped me through a stressful time with her friendly, courteous & helpful manner. At all times she was extremely professional. Thank you Lauren plus thank you also to the friendly voices who answered the phone!

Ms McFaulLondon to Larne

Moving Crew - Cahill Gilmore & Justin Horner

I was very happy and confident that everything would be straight forward from when I spoke with Michael Dunbar at the beginning to discuss the move and would have no hesitation in recommending McGimpseys or in using them again in the future. Thank you to all involved.

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 WakferCornwall to Newtownards

Moving Crew - Daniel Banke, Graeme McPhillips, Martin Pollock & Dylan Massey

The service we received from Jason and the team has been exceptional. Our belongings were collected from a container yard in the UK and the feedback from the staff there about the McGimpseys team was excellent. Our belongings were delivered to our home in Northern Ireland undamaged and the delivery team were first class. We really appreciated this during a really stressful time and will recommend (and use again) McGimpseys without hesitation. Thank you!!!

Mr & Mrs GirvanBangor to Dubai

Moving Crew - Cahal Gilmore & David Spence

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 - Daniel Banke & Nelson Farrell

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 RoebuckWarwickshire to Ballymena

Moving Crew - Dylan Harper, Dylan Massey & Curtis Dickson

Fantastic service right through from booking to delivery. Jason was exceptionally helpful with organising the move and fitting in dates / helping with quantity estimate. The team on both collection and delivery were all outstanding, very courteous and hard working. An excellent service and made what could have been a very stressful experience relatively straight forward. Would definitely recommend and use McGimpsey Brothers for removals in the future.

Mr & Mrs TraversManchester to Bangor

Moving Crew - Ricky Gordon, Graeme McPhillips, Steven Atchison, Ryan Horner & Dylan Massey

We were very happy with all aspects of our relocation to N Ireland. Jason Whiteside talked us through the process and allayed our concerns about the move. The crew who collected our possessions were so professional and friendly. They inspired us with the confidence needed that our goods would be safely transported to our new home. The delivery crew were very good and cheerfully put things where we wanted them and didn't mind a bit if we asked them to move something again to another room. Overall, we were very impressed with the care and consideration given to the move. Our neighbours at both locations were overawed with the size of the truck!

Mr TarrantSomerset to Ballywalter via storage

Moving Crew - David Craig, Alan Robinson, Andy Smith & Richard Duckett

The experience of the move from Somerset into storage and onwards to my new home in Northern Ireland, undertaken over a period of eight months, was made less stressful by the efficiency and expertise shown by yourself and all the staff at McGimpsey's. To arrange the move from storage to my new house in less than 24 hours, as you did, I thought an extraordinary and welcome effort. This morning the two guys who delivered my furniture and boxes (Andrew and Richard) were prompt, efficient, helpful and friendly; fine ambassadors for McGimpsey. As indeed were the two, (David and Alan), that moved my possessions from Somerset into storage last September. Once again, many thanks.

Moving Crew - Andy Wawrzacz, Hugh Adair, Jamie Gent, David Spence, Justin Horner, David Love, Johny Lyons, Daniel Banke, Ryan Horner & Martin Pollock

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and especially your removal guys for the efficient and speedy move you did for us last week. Please pass on to all the guys that came, our thanks and appreciation for all their hard work. Every one of them without exception was cheerful, professional and a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble and they even went out of their way to do things that they didn’t have to in order to help the move. We live in a world where all too often we only get to hear about the complaints our clients have but don’t often get compliments so please thank your staff on our behalf.

Ards Leisure CentreMove from old leisure centre to new leisure centre

Just wanted to touch base with you following the equipment move yesterday at Ards Leisure Centre and pass on my thanks for a very efficient and professional service. Darren and the guys were brilliant and worked tirelessly in a less than ideal situation to get all the equipment moved for us.

Mr FernandoLisburn to London via store

Very professional and outstanding service for money. I stored my house content with McGimpsey Brothers for over 5 years and I am pleased to say finally when I decided to move it back to my preferred location, everything was in original condition. The team had taken pride and care in every aspect of removing and storing my expensive household contents. Happy to recommend their service!

Miss De PauwBallyclare to Dubai

Moving Crew - Ryan Mawhinney

Ryan was in my house earlier to pack up my bits and pieces. I just wanted to say how impressed I was with his professionalism, knowledge, efficiency and friendly reassuring conversation. If you have an employee of the week/month award, I’d like to put Ryan forward please.

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.

Miss BartonBangor to East Sussex

Moving Crew - Martin Pollock, David Love, Craig McGimpsey, Vaidas Zitkevicius & Graeme McPhillips

I moved some furniture from Bangor NI to Lewes, East Sussex. Everybody was more than exceptional. Really nice guys on delivery and wouldn't even stop to have a drink of water! Michael in the main office was so helpful and understanding. Will definitely be using McGimpseys again in the future and have recommended to all my friends and family.
