Man and Van
I used AnyVan as a recommendation from a friend after I told him I was moving, he had experienced great service and asked me to book with them as they were a trusted company. I did book with them and got nervous when they arrived 15 minutes late from our booking window. But the driver called and assured me that he was on the way. This helped ease my worries. When they arrived, the driver was courteous enough and apologized. The movers worked very well and nothing was they were careful with my Television and other fragile household items. But I would hope they try to keep time.
The driver was so nice. If I was to vote for him, I'd give five stars but the company sucks. The person (Sara) on the customer service team, promised to help me on the day, but she was nowhere to be found. I thought you were trustable SARA. Such a disappointment... And the driver was just made it before 10am as he was sent to Birmingham in the early morning and the van was booked for domestic travel. How on earth the driver got multiple jobs where I have to be on time for that storage room. And I told each one of the people I've spoken with. Ridiculous company. I won't use it anymore

to put it simply choose another company.
Shocking communication to say the least.
They arrived late and delivered two days late too with barely an explanation. The office team didn’t have the same “ story “‘as the removal team with an explanation of where our stuff had got to… at one point promising our items where two hours away only to receive an email at 8:40PM saying the delivery of our items would be rescheduled.( they were already a day and a half late by this point )
They didn’t want to put the items into the correct rooms or even close. Their explanation for this was they have a 7 hour drive ahead of them to get home.
I wish I had chosen another company and spent £4000 on removals else where !!
They did admit it had been a total shambles and offered £75 compensation which i refused. It was meant to be escalated to a higher level but once again with zero communication they proceeded to issue the £75 “ compensation which doesn’t even cover the items that got damaged or smashed up. They disregarded my concerns and my refusal of the £75 and made the refund regardless, with yet again no phone call back to me to discuss.
They talk the good talk on the initial phone call but it’s all a front , they are just basically a middle man to finding any old van to complete the job.
I wish I had paid the £4000 to a better run , more deserving company rather than this bunch of cowboys.
Worst company ever. I miss my collection as I was waiting for the driver to call me, I had spoken with him in morning. Another number called and I missed it. When I called back she wanted another 300 pounds to reschedule. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 Same day reschedule 300 pounds. I'm literally still crying.
They can't refund any money despite not receiving any service.
600 pounds gone just like that. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭. My heart is in pain.
DREADFUL! I had to use AnyVan as my removal co. cancelled 36 hours before house completion... AnyVan were available-that's the positive. Long story short: arrived with someone else's enormous sofa, so my stuff didn't fit in! I'd paid £1400+ (Double what my original company wanted) and then at 2.15pmish (hours after the sale had gone through and I was technically in breach of contract) I had to book another van from another company, costing me a further £750! The sofa was then delivered before my stuff and the lorry eventually arrived at my new home at 9.16pm! The additional drivers that I had paid extra for then helped AnyVan operators unload and all lorries left at 1am!
Yes, throughout the day I kept AnyVan aware and they did NOTHING. Theo told me that the lorry was not allowed to carry other people's stuff and spoke to the driver-fat lot of good that did. He then said he'd see if he could get another vehicle to help and he'd get back to me in a couple of hours. Maybe. It's a removal company and everyone knows that moving house is stressful so why add to that stress AnyVan, by being incompetent in the moment? What choice did you leave me with when I was already in breach of contract and could have been sued by the new owner of my ex property!
As I moved just before Christmas I wrote a complaint to AnyVan at the start of the new year-I just couldn't face it ruining my christmas. Outlined some damage that had occurred (I've found more since) but AnyVan took great delight in stating that they weren't responsible as it was outside the one week reporting period. After that, AnyVan did nothing for three weeks despite my reminding them-interesting considering when I made a booking I was plagued by endless emails, phone calls and texts. It was like being stalked! Then I was offered a paltry sum. Honestly, I was being patient but the figure was so insulting for what they put me through that now I'll review then anywhere I can!
If you want to move one item, fine. For removals, forget it. They are SO expensive compared to other companies and their slogan could not be less true.
Who they sent on 23rd of October was an absolute nightmare
Rude on the phone then the lies started (story from them is still changing)
Said they couldn't move an under counter fridge yet when I got to the property it was blocking the entrance
Found unpacked boxes
Human faeces left on the toilet
Neither anyvan or who they sent are accepting any responsibility
Nothing was moved out of the property
Felt backed into a corner and rebooked for the 24th much better experience and went smoothly
Just be wary of them who ever they sent clearly has issues
Make sure you are at the property because you never know what's going to go missing or damaged
I recently had the misfortune of using AnyVan for a house move, and I must say that it was a wholly unsatisfactory experience from start to finish. The issues I encountered throughout the process were not only distressing but also indicative of a systemic problem within this company.
My initial concerns arose when the AnyVan team arrived for the move, and it was clear that they were ill-prepared for a task of the magnitude of a four-bedroom house with a double garage. They arrived with two small-sized removal vans that were inadequate for the job, demonstrating a severe underestimation of the workload.
The move was originally scheduled as a one-day operation, despite several other professional removal companies recommending a two-day move with a three-man crew. This decision placed undue pressure on the AnyVan team, resulting in a 12-hour ordeal that extended into the evening. This exhaustion and time constraint led to a noticeable decline in their care and attention towards the end of the day.
What's most concerning is that the Transport Providers, assigned by AnyVan, were expected to accomplish a two-day job in just one day. This was not realistically achievable and created an environment in which damages were more likely to occur.
Regrettably, during the move, my wooden furniture sustained significant damage. I firmly believe that the responsibility for this damage lies not only with the Transport Providers but also with AnyVan itself. Their decision to contract ill-prepared and unqualified staff for the job, who arrived without the necessary equipment, reflects a severe lack of professionalism.
Despite presenting a compelling case with evidence, AnyVan's response has been not only insulting but also dismissive of the legitimate concerns I raised. They have offered a settlement that is woefully insufficient and fails to address the extent of the damages and the associated inconvenience and financial burden.
To my dismay, AnyVan has chosen to uphold their stance without acknowledging the inherent flaws in their approach to my move. Their unwillingness to accept their mistake in underestimating the scope of the job and failing to provide adequately skilled and equipped personnel is a testament to their lack of accountability.
This entire experience has left me deeply dissatisfied with AnyVan, and I would caution anyone considering their services to think twice. In light of their response, I believe that prospective customers should be aware of the potential risks associated with entrusting AnyVan with their belongings during a move.
In my opinion, the derisory settlement offered does not come close to addressing the damage and distress caused by AnyVan's lack of preparation and professionalism. I now find myself seeking alternative avenues to rectify this situation and hold AnyVan accountable for their actions.
This experience has left me profoundly disappointed, and I hope that my review serves as a warning to others who may be considering AnyVan for their moving needs.
If I could rate zero stars I would.
I hired anyvan to do my house move. They HIRE other people who are incompetent. 2 men came with a small van and I expressed my concern as it was a full house move. The men could not speak English and somehow managed to put my full house hold items into 1 small van.
During the removal they damaged 2 of 4 flat screen televisions. 1 that cost £2000. A oak mirror, fridge freezer, washing machine and dryer all dented and scratched massively. The above I put in a claim for obviously and the removal men said the damage was already done. Yeh no images to support the damage. They had taken images of damage to other items in my old house which I pointed out to them also. Anyway. It was then that I became aware that anyvan use a 3rd party. And I am not insured for damage with anyvan. They will not provide me with the lads insurance provider due to confidentiality. These lads have caused thousands of pounds worth of damage to my belongings and AnyVan have said if they do not accept liability I will be given up to £100 towards each damaged item. I am seeking legal advice and hope anyvan will be slammed with the legal bill.
The only advice I will give is stay well clear of this terrible company and save your self the upset of items being badly damaged.
My cooker was also badly damaged but before I realised I was not insured for damage I did not claim for this as my cooker had other damage so I felt it was unreasonable to claim for it.
Any van promised my tvs would be taken down and put up. Then they said they do not do this.
Any Van is not as good as they like to make out. My home appliances are ruined. One lad trampled poo all over my carpets. I paid for 3 beds to be taken down and put back up. They are loose and I am unable to do it my self due to physical health problems. Honestly wouldn't waste your money
WOULD NOT REFUND MY MONEY
The removals team they supplied were incompetent and the vehicle they supplied inadequate. They damaged almost every piece of furniture, ranging from large scratches, holes you can put your fist through to doors torn from cabinets. They caused over £2000 of damage and offered £76 in compensation. You'd be better off sticking a match to your existing furniture and buy it all again new.
