Great removal for ourselves and family. Ross and his team were professional, caring, patient and efficient for us in our move north. Nothing was overlooked and the communication throughout was clear and caring in what was a life changing experience for all. We all can’t praise him and his team enough.
What an excellent service from everyone at Thistle. They made the 600 mile move as stress-free as possible, and they went above and beyond to do everything they could to help out. Ross and Chris also took my car in the lorry and my cat in the cab with them, which was such a great help to us both. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
A great experience! Thistle Removals & Storage were a calm and steady reassuring influence in the weeks leading up to our move, offering solutions and solving problems for us as they arose, then fabulous on moving day too. Could not fault them. Thank you for everything! Highly recommended.
Buckie to Blackpool
Our delivery was from Buckie to Blackpool and we had a phone call to give us an e.t.a which was 6.30 pm. With it being a bank holiday, they arrived, understandably late due to traffic on M6, at approx 7.15 pm. Both of the delivery men were very nice, chatty and very helpful. The service we received was excellent and very good value. We would highly recommend this firm.
Thistle were absolutely outstanding moving us. From first contact, Ross provided excellent support. He was quick to respond to our enquiries, friendly & eager to accommodate our requests. Thistle was able to perfectly fit with our dates for the 600 mile move. We could not believe how calm, patient & cheerful they were over every little thing. They had every tricky thing under control and were so reassuring. They made a very tiring, difficult experience feel completely ok. We had far too much stuff, yet skilfully they got it all in. The van was full right to the back doors. Amazing job done! Unloading was equally friendly, efficient and successful. Thistle is a brilliant, family run company that we cannot praise too highly. Their service was perfect: friendly, helpful crew, excellent timing and careful handling of our goods at a very low price, especially as we had an 18 ton truck & crew for the week of our 600 mile migration.
Hard to believe there is a better removals company in the UK

Thank you so very much, guys. You rock!
An outstanding company.
Thank you Ross and your team for such an easy move from Cheshire to Moray. The team worked very hard, nothing got broken and everything was done with the utmost efficiency.
Ross planned the move in a very helpful way that overcame all our logistic difficulties, streets ahead of any of the other proposals we received.
We cannot recommend this company highly enough. An outstanding service. Thank you.
Used Thistle for a move from
Meriden ( Solihull) to Findochty Can’t fault the move Chris & Matt couldn’t have done any more for us Kept us informed of their progress to get to us on the day before the move. Arrived on time on the day. We’re two really nice guys who went above and beyond, to help us and to make the 489 mile trip go without a hitch. Arrived on time and as planned the next day to reverse the process and empty the lorry into our new house. Cannot fault Ross and his guys. Would recommend Thistle Removals & Storage to anyone thinking of moving house or moving items from one place to another. Top company Top Guys...
Thistle Removals were fantastic in helping me move out, store my items and deliver my items at my new address. I used the self packing. I was delivered trailers as I needed them and this was always quick. Their removal was as quick. In my new address I found all my items appeared undisturbed in the crates, no damage. The trailers were delivered and removed speedily. The service is more than helpful. I recommend them 100%.
Absolute value for money & excellent personal service
Thistle Removals were professional, polite, efficient & incredibly hard working & conscientious. We would have no hesitation in recommending them. No breakages, and nothing was too much trouble. We have a lot of heavy furniture but they worked tirelessly & always with a smile.
Ross and his boys did everything they could to make my move painless and efficient. This was the second time I have used Thistle. My previous house was difficult to access but they managed the "road" easily both times. They were extremely resourceful when it came to difficult items and never once complained about the ridiculous quantity of boxes. I would recommend them to anyone who asks; indeed I already have!
Always puts the customer first
this is the third time i have used Thistle Removals are have already recommended them to my friends who have also used them and recommended them onwards. The service is efficient, professional and friendly - and have always been very reasonably priced. They take care of your possessions, are quick and efficient and extremely helpful. They put the customer first.
Difficult House Move made easy
Thistle Removals offered me an excellent service, during a very difficult time of coming out of lockdown and going through a separation which was far from amicable!! Thistle had not problems with helping me when I had to change my moving date a few times, which was a massive relief for me. Chris and the guys arrived on the day and blasted through the items which had to be removed for storage. I can begin to thank the whole team for their efforts and help, a house move is difficult enough but under these circumstances Thistle were amazing - thank you all would definitely recommend you and use you again.
Brilliant, helpful, professional service.
The help, advise and peace of mind the service provided by Thistle Removals is excellent. In such a stressful, quick changing time that house moving is, its great to have calm, helpful service, which is what they offer. Nothing seemed too much trouble, including help me shift my heavy goods (even though I was packing my own trailer). The trailers are clean, dry and well equipped with padding and blankets as needed. They were very prompt in delivering the trailers and as quick to remove them when packed.First class service.
Despite my removal date changing several times due to legal complications Thistle Removals came to carry out my removal with only one days notice.
They emptied my old house quickly and efficiently then transported everything to my new house and again emptied their lorry in the same efficient manner, delivering everything to the room of my choice.
Although I have no intention of moving house again, if I did, I would certainly use Thistle Removals.
I would recommend to anyone wishing a good old fashioned service, where the Customer is King, Thistle Removals is the Company to use.
Polite, courteous and professional.
From the initial phone call right up to the removal had finished every member of the team were very polite, courteous and helpful. Nothing was ever a problem and they packed up carefully and move all our belongings to our new home without a single issue (other than the rain ....and it poured down the day we moved in). Would highly recommend.
Excellent Thistle Removals
Excellent service provided by this company. They went out of their way to accommodate us and meet our needs. Arrived on time, quickly loaded the lorry and how they got all our stuff into it I’ll never know. Left the lorry unloaded in their safe lock-up overnight and quickly unloaded at our new house next day. Lorry was expertly loaded and unloaded so not as much as a teacup was scratched. Price charged was very competitive and we would certainly use them again.
Absolutely fabulous experience moving is stressful but thistle removers make it easy.
We couldn’t have done it without the help of thistle removers and Ross and his nephew, we moved over 200 miles and used thistle removers. They offer a fabulous service and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend thistle removers to anyone. Nothing was too much bother for thistle removers. You get outstanding service.
Move completed - now for the unpacking!
Thank you again to Ross and Chris, this time for safely moving my furniture from storage to it's new abode. I am 'never' going to move again but if I do I would certainly use Thistle Removals. They provided an excellent level of service. Thank you.
I had 1 and a half storage containers with Thistle removals for approx 1 year. Belongings picked up from property, stored and delivered back. Excellent in every respect...customer service, price and all delivered back as stored. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a removal or storage company.
Best experience for our relocation
We have had an excellent experience using Thistle Removals. They arrived early to start loading, which was especially helpful as we were moving from England. We're courteous and friendly throughout, went out of their way to help us even if it wasn't part of their job.
They held our items in secure storage for a number of months (at a very reasonable rate) and were always readily available should we have needed access.
Can't recommend them highly enough, by far the best value for money too.
Thistle Removals & Storage. Excellent service and value for money.
Can't fault these guys. They provide an excellent service, prompt and well organized.
From the initial quote to delivering our furniture, everything went smoothly. All our possessions were treated with care and attention.
I would happily recommend these guys to anybody, and if in the future I ever need this service again, I wouldn't hesitate to call Thistle Removals again.
