We booked a 4 bedroom house removal for 28.0 - 31.0 cubic meters of items to be moved for a 10am – noon pick up slot. We called days in advance to be sure a van or vans large enough move our items in one trip would be provided as with our move we were selling/buying on the same day. We were reassured by Anyvan this would be the case. Here are some lowlights from the service we received: • We had to chase our driver when they didn’t arrive between 10-noon. • They told us then they would be an hour late. When the driver turned on their tracker they were over 2.5 hours drive away. • The transport partner were not based locally and were based and completing work that morning in Essex, (we are in the Midlands). • They eventually arrived at just before 3pm. 5 – 3 hours late. At the point we started loading we were squatting in someone else’s house for two hours. • The van was a 3.5 ton Luton van – half the capacity which was required and one I could have hired myself for a fraction of the price. • They could not fit our items in one load we had to do two trips. This is clear from anyvan’s own guide on "What Size Removals Van Do I Need?" (on their website this site won't allow me to link to it directly). The van we received standard 3.5 ton luton is quoted as having a capacity of 16 cubic meters (600 cubic feet). Remember their own estimate was our items were 28.0 – 31.0 meters. • The van had clearly not been safety checked. Every warning light illuminated on the dashboard. • Our buyer was livid and is still threatening legal action – we were in their property and did not vacate until gone 6pm. Their own removal service is charging them due to Anyvan’s disruption. We finished unloading at around 7:20pm. • Our buyer began moving items into their new home, Anyvan providers managed to pack up some of there items and transport to our new property, we had to return these at our own cost. • Anyvan have not provided any answers to why the van was half capacity ordered or why they were late. Total failure to take any responsibility in a job that clearly went very wrong. • Anyvan state they cannot share conclusions from “internal investigations” as to what went wrong. • We paid £580, we’ve quite rightly been offered £15 as a “gesture of goodwill”. We are yet to take them up on this generous offer and will be seeking to recoup costs through other means. My advice… avoid like the plague. If you think Anyvan are competitively priced it’s not worth the risk. Move yourself or pay the premium for a proper professional company, not these chancers. They do not deliver what they promise. Their convenient platform they believe absolves them of any accountability, liability or responsibility to their customers.
