J.A. Coles vs Luke Bros

After so many quotations, questions, etc I have ended up with two finalists (U.K. --> CH):

1) J.A. Coles

and

2) Luke Bros

Price is exactly the same as well as the services: dedicated delivery (we choose the dates) desassembly-assembly of furniture, insurance, etc

I have read some posts regarding Luke Bros in the Forum, mostly positive, but I haven't found anyone that reviewed any experience with J.A. Coles.
I would appreciate if any of you has some opinion to share.

The only difference so far is that Luke Bros want 100% of final price when booking while Coles takes 50% when booking and 50% after delivered, which sounds more sensitive.....

Re: J.A. Coles vs Luke Bros

Never heard of JA Coles, but I used Luker Bros when I moved from Essex to Zug, incl them holding things in storage for 3 months.

I was happy paying all up front, so if you have no recommendations from the other lot, I would go with Luker.

I plan to use them again, when the time comes for us to go back to the UK.

Re: J.A. Coles vs Luke Bros

I recommend you search the forum for Luker Bros. A very mixed bag of experiences have been had.
