Penny Kriel - "Thank you for making a stressful pack up seamless and stress-free. "
I would just like to mention how well the Packers packed and how gentle they were with my fragile goods. They were approachable and friendly at all times and I felt confident that all my things were in good hands. They worked very well as a team and each days packing went like clockwork with everyone knowing exactly what was expected of them.
Allied Pickfords definitely get an 11 out of 10 rating from me and I will recommend them to anybody who asks me about which removable company to use.
Thank you for making a very stressful pack up seamless and stress-free. All my concerns around the safety of my household goods were put to bed with this highly proficient and professional company and highly competent staff.

Debbie Cooper - "These articles you move around the world with such care and attention carry the stories of the people who own and use them. It is good to know that these stories are in such good hands."
I hope you are well. I am Jim Finlayson's younger daughter Debbie and I am writing to thank you for helping mom and dad to transport the dinner service from Durban to Perth last year.The dinner service is a family piece of great sentimental value - it was given to mom by her brother in the early 1950s. It is a Poole pottery service and the factory has now closed so it is difficult to replace plates and things if they break. The dinner service has traveled from Liverpool to Africa ( and around Africa as dad and moved!) and now to Australia.
It was the "good" service that came out at Christmas and on special occasions such as Christenings and graduation dinners. You always new you were in for a good party when mom pulled out the green plates! Over years mom and dad's grandchildren and their great grandchildren have had the pleasure of sharing good food and great friendships at mom's table - and they too have grown to know granny's "good" service.
When I asked my daughter to collect the dinner service from the Perth depot the first thing she said was ," Oh you mean the good green one we only got to use at Christmas?" She had to unpack it at customs and messaged me afterward to say that it was all in one piece and how gorgeous it was!! WE used it this Christmas here in far away Perth with mom and dad's grandchildren and one of the youngest of the great grandchildren. It looked fabulous and connected us in one small way again with the people we love who now live so far away.
I attach a picture of it at our Christmas table! I would like to thank you for your kindness in helping mom and dad to get this service to me here in Australia. It means a lot to us and will continue to be a treasure in our family. I would also like to thank you and the company for the expert packaging and passage - it has arrived unscathed on its new continent.These articles you move around the world with such care and attention carry the stories of the people who own and use them. It is good to know that these stories are in such good hands.
Thank you so much again

Sorry for only sending this e-mail now – these last couple of weeks has been a whirlwind.
I would just like to thank Bornface, Kleinboy and Aubrey for the way they have handled the packing and loading of our household goods.
They were at all time respectful of us, our feelings and handled all our things with the utmost care.
They are three amazing people and are definitely an asset to your company and its’ reputation.
Please will you thank them for me again and give them my regards?
Thank you to you as well for making the big move easier than what we thought it would be! We will definitely be recommending your company to anyone who is thinking of moving!

Julia Fryer - "The team worked together like a World Cup Winning Sports Team"
Please can you ensure that everyone at Pickfords see’s this email and that it goes right to the top! I would like to compliment the team that have been packing up my house: Oscar, Happiness and Melissa – and today they were joined by a bigger team of men that have been lifting and carrying all day. Their names are: Bongikosi (well he was here yesterday), Adile, Jeza, Cebekhulu and Madiba.
The staff that work at Pickfords are WORLD CLASS and I am so humbled to have such extra-ordinary people helping with my move.
I had several VERY heavy items to carry and the team worked together like a World Cup Winning Sports Team – talk about spirit and “gees”
No wonder I am so excited about Africa’s future – its full of men and women like this that help to build our nation. EXCEPTIONAL. Wonderful people!
I would like to give a special mention to Oscar! WHAT A GENTLEMAN!!! He epitomises leadership to me. He just gets stuck in. Nothing is too much trouble. He leads from the front, is knowledgeable, is not afraid of getting his hands dirty and if there is something heavy to carry, he is right in there. His peer influence is extra-ordinary. He lets people give their opinions and so everyone feels heard and valued and then decides on the right route to go – and BOOOOM, the team all gel together and get it done! He is a seriously special gentleman.
Jean was also leagues above all the other sales agents I met from other companies who also quoted on the job. She and Penny responded as per their word, each and every time they made a commitment. They were meticulous and knowledgeable.
The team was so professional in general and just such a pleasure to deal with.
Thank you for an amazing service thus far and I hope my stuff arrives in Kenya with as much joy and pleasure as I have experienced on this side!
