Brytons was terrible with communication from the beginning. A friend of mine who also dealt with them posted a unfavourable review and they removed. The costs initially quoted by Brytons were competitive but there were many hidden fees at the point of delivery to Europe. We were not aware how high these costs could go and there was never any heads up from Brytons. The packing of our shipment was done poorly and many items were damaged in the process. Not sure if we will be reimbursed as their insurance system is cumbersome and convoluted. Communication generally throughout the process was poor. We continually had to follow-up every step of the way. They never made this move easy and nor were they forthcoming. Avoid using this company if you can.

Pros and cons
Communication
Quality of Packing
Moved from Pretoria (South Africa) to Budapest (Hungary).

Response of

Good afternoon, Mr. M's load was shipped as a LCL shipment with CFR Freight and was handled by Beta Moving in Hungary (the destination agent). Whilst his goods were professionally packed and photographed prior to loading on this side, in a sealed crate, there were some damages recorded on arrival in Hungary. The damages seem to be handling/movement related. Photographs were sent by the client and the delivering agent confirming this type of damage. It seems that the crate was roughly handled and some of the contents moved whilst in transit. Mr. M was insured through our insurers, Commrisk Hollard and has been settled in FULL as per what he claimed and insured for.
Regarding the extra hidden costs, there were none that were not specifically listed on his quotation. His quote clearly states, excluded: customs duties and taxes, additional port fees.
His price was also reduced during the packing stage by R2 238.00 by ourselves because we packed it tighter than we had quoted on and the volume decreased. I am very sorry that there were damages sustained during his move, Hungary is not a common destination but we have never had these sort of issues with them before and I hope that the insurance payout will cover the repair of the damaged items. I am very sorry that the move didn't go perfectly as we planned.

Guys came in and packed up for 2 days without fuss. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They were quiet, courteous and professional. Ate lunch offsite so we had a break from each other. Sales/admin team has been fantastic and although we are awaiting our shipment, they’ve been very communicative throughout the process.

Professional
Efficient

Actually no stars but does not give me that option!!!! Incompetent, additional costs, had to call them for updates. Had a 4 week delay as the inspection booking was made wrong. Most pathetic removal company ever.

Moved from Singapore (Singapore) to Vereeniging (South Africa).

Response of

This was an import move and the client didn't have her documentation ready or complete so it was delayed by SA customs, not us. We tried helping but unfortunately there are certain documents that only the client is able to obtain. These caused delays that were charged for by the shipping line. We never billed her anything additional from our side. Very sad that we tried our best to assist and then get a bad response anyway.

Our household goods were packed and taken away on the 28th June 2017 and we are still in the Johannesburg warehouse awaiting a container to be filled (7-weeks). We are living in Scotland and have an empty house awaiting our household goods. not good enough!

Moved from Johannesburg (South Africa) to Dunfermline (United Kingdom).

Response of

The cheaper groupage option was chosen by the client. With groupage containers, the price is obviously cheaper because you only pay for the space that you use in the container instead of paying for the whole container that is only partially full. We sell off the open space to other clients going in the same direction. Unfortunately, the down side is that it takes longer because we cost it so the container is full before it can go. This was clearly pointed out in the quotation.

Everything was going well until the container arrived in the UK. All of a sudden what originally had been sold as a door-to-door service has got hidden costs attached to it that I am now forced to pay. This was in relation to the floor number that the goods have to be transported to and the access to the building. At the initial brief I had mentioned I would live on the 2nd/3rd floor but this was not factored into the contract.

Pros and cons
Good communication
Removal team were quick and friends
initial brief did not make specifics clear
what seemed like a good value move has now turned into an expensive nightmare
Moved from Johannesburg (South Africa) to London (United Kingdom).

Response of

We dealt with this complaint and it was resolved with the agent in the UK. Brytons Removals paid for the additional amount that the UK agent wanted for an upstairs delivery. Unfortunately Mrs. Crundwell-uberbacher has never bothered to remove or amend her complaint! Not very fair.
