    "Hi avoid these guys they delivered some product to site on behalf of a client when I asked them not to place it on the gravel drive one of them grabbed me and offered physical violence I was truly gobsmacked they were like 2 kindergarten kids oneegging the other on.
    When I rang the office to talk to a director he said that by the tone of my voice I was a smartass didn't want to talk to me and hung up.
    Get your stuff delivered by this company and you might get a bash as well !!

    "Excellent service. Two strong polite guys arrived on time and got stuck into the job of moving heavy furniture from a three level home into their truck. They we careful with everything and packed and tied the contents securely for transport. On arrival at the destination which was 45km away the truck was unloaded in no time. We could not have asked for better service and we certainly thought it was great value for money. Thank you Gilbert’s Cartage."

    "Awesome move with Gilbert's. The guys that came to do the move could not have been more personable or accommodating. Went above and beyond when placing items. Did things very quickly and efficiently with no careless handling. Considerably under the quote."

    "Do Not Use This Company. You need to read the poor comments here, they are true, we had the low quote and received a bill 300% higher, they try to waste as many hours as possible to build up the charges, the only pay for what you receive is a total hoax. They damaged our furniture without any care costing hundreds to repair, they stole specific items within the boxes and its all under your insurance."

    "I have used Gilberts several times over the past 10 years, most recent move was last week. I have always found them to be very reliable, which is why I continue using Gilberts. They know how to move items safely."

    "NOT HAPPY! Invoice was double the estimate!!

    First contact was a phone call to clarify the job, we were assured that they knew the pickup site well (the kitchen seller had recommended them). We confirmed with website form.

    Received an estimate of about $350.00, sounded fair enough to pickup and move from Newmarket to Howick. Our full household move from suburb to suburb 6 mths prior (by someone else) was $1700

    On the day the movers were absolutely fantastic, they did a good job of being careful and delivered the kitchen in good condition. But they had arrived on the pickup site in a truck way too big to get into the site (that they apparently knew well) so had to carry all the pieces a very long way.

    We ended up paying for all the extra pickup time due to the choices of Gilberts who didn't want to know anything when we raised it as an issue with them, (wasn't fair to argue the point with the moving guys on the day)

    "Could not have asked for a more useless pair of guys to help me move.
    One guy was couldn't speak English and kept repeating what I was saying, but after explaining to him what I wanted he kept asking every time he came to move something.
    The other kept looking at me up and down and made me feel very uncomfortable. The move took twice as long because of their poor English. Would not recommend this company to anyone who wants a hassle free move.

    "Stay clear of this moving company, they operate a bait & switch style operation (they first gain your business with a low/competitive price, then went it comes time to settle the bill directly with the movers, they surprise you with a grossly inflated bill). I did complain to the head office but their only excuse was that they provided a quote & not an invoice, so legally they could charge whatever! Ridiculous "

    "Wow - I\'ve moved more times over the years than I care to think about and these folks are the best I\'ve used.

    It was an in-house relocation to the garage and back again three weeks later - we had the same team both times, so they hardly had to be told anything the second time as they remembered where everything went from their first visit.

    Highly recommended."

    "an excellent job by Ken and Russell. They made this difficult day easier for us by their great work and cheerfulness, gentle handling of our furniture and other belongings, and they were tireless keeping on through the day. And even connected my washing machine for us! They showed expertise in the order of moving furniture out and in, and great care maneuvering things without any damage to walls or items moved. a great team

    "These guys are awesome. They arrived on time, picked up all the boxes and furniture quickly and were on the move within half hour, and were fast at the other end as well. They charge from the moment they arrive at your place and up to the time they finish, unlike some greedy companies which start charging from the moment they leave their depot. Thanks for the quick and friendly service, I will surely use them in the future and would recommend them to all my friends and families."

    "It was just so fantastic to be-able to book my job with the girl who answered the phone. Other companies I had to be transferred to one or two other people before I was given any information.
    The lads were wonderful - so helpful and kept a smile. "
