Bournes have been a Kantar vendor for at least 4-5 years. Relocation at Kantar was fast, furious and never straightforward, Natalie and the Bournes team were always flexible, always ready to discuss the more complex cases and needs. What we particularly valued about Bournes, is they offer a global service, their advantage is the fact that their team, felt like an extension to our team, and their service felt personal. We surveyed relocating employees post move; we always had good feedback, and a lot of the time employees thought they were working with part of the Kantar team when they were working with Bournes; and we really loved that! I now work for another WPP operating business but I still regularly communicate with Natalie and Bournes, I value their willingness to share knowledge about the industry, updates and advice. There are very few shippers and relocation service providers that can offer such a comprehensive, professional and bespoke service, but Bournes is one of them.
Former Global Mobility Manager, Kantar
Arup has now been working with Bournes for over 2 years and during that time we have found them to be extremely responsive in all communications with us and our employees. They are incredibly client-focused and have excellent customer service skills. We have a superb main contact in Marilyn Webster who is supported by an excellent team. Quotes are always timely and accurate with no nasty surprises on invoicing. Any changes are always discussed with us before agreeing. A couple of examples that I can provide where they have gone above and beyond for us include an assignee who only decided to ship on a Monday and were approved and packed by Friday, and another who suffered an error by Chinese customs that was quickly resolved in-country personally by the local senior manager.
