Thanks to all of the people who posted replies today . I don't know why this query was suddenly reactivated as I moved to London nearly 3 years ago. In any case, if any of you actually to move back to the UK, avoid Bishop's (which was the company recommended by Chris and which I used). Their international service is really dreadful. They were extremely badly organised, the removal team arrived 4 hours late because even though the move was planned to take a whole day they actually to do another booking that day. Then they did everything at double speed, causing thousands pounds damages (hardly anything survived without some form of damages). The two guys were also rude and utterly incompetent, absolute cowboys of a type no reputable removal company should use. And from I have been able to find afterwards on the net, my experience is far from unique! No need to say they never accepted to compensate me for the damages or any other problems caused. So visibly Chris was extremely lucky, maybe because the move was organised by his local branch rather than their international service.
