What Others Say About Us

“Callans moved us from a five bedroom house in Surrey to a five bedroom house in Glasgow with a year in their storage centre. We could not have been happier with the service, very pleasant, helpful and utterly professional throughout” Murdoch MacLennan, Chief Executive of Telegraph Media
  • "Thank you for your cheque we received today.  We are absolutely delighted and somewhat surprised at the total figure achieved – and all from bits and bobs from the attic.  We are off to the travel agents tomorrow to book our cruise!  Thanks to all at Callans", Mr & Mrs Caldwell, Ayr

  • “I just wanted to express our sincere thanks to Tom and Marc for the way in which they conducted the clearance of my mother’s house.  It was an extremely difficult and quite an emotional day and your team proved sensitive and sympathetic and at the same time very efficient” Mrs Bulloch, Troon

  • “Your lads are a credit to your firm, I can’t praise James and Scott enough.  They showed great patience and nothing was ever too much trouble for them even when clearing the filthy attic and outbuildings.  They even hoovered the rooms and left leaving the house ready for the property market” Mrs Walker, Prestwick
