We're moving back to the UK later this year (from Germany). Can anyone recommend a removals company? We used Pickfords on the way out here and they were okay but I'm wondering about other companies.

I started a thread about this the other week - there's some suggestions on it:

In the end we decided to use www.voovit.com - it was the cheapest quote we got. You can also save money if you provide your own boxes. Downside is you have to pack yourself and it's curb-to-curb. We don't have much stuff so we're only sending back about 8 boxes worth - probably about 5m3 - the rest will come with us in the car (we're in Madrid).

good luck with the move

Thanks MrIC - we're not just shipping a few boxes though. It's the contents of a house (furniture and everything) and I want a company who will pack for us as then their insurance will cover the removal.
