Stress-free since 1962

As a company, we have gained a wealth of experience over the years within the removal industry, including home moves, commercial moves, export shipping and storage. Each move is unique and we tailor our service to every client`s needs.

Moving Abroad?

Moving abroad? We’ve got you covered. Our team is experienced in relocation, and we can provide a door-to-door or port service that will make sure you’re prepared for anything. Whether it’s full pre shipment preparation, collection throughout the UK – even marine insurance if needed–we are here to take care of every detail.


All quotations exclude VAT and insurance. Cover can be offered additionally with various levels of cover.

We supply 25 boxes and a roll of packing tape with every move. Additional boxes can be purchased should you require more.

We can offer a packing and unpacking service, storage and a strip and build service should you need a full dismantle and reassembling service.

We ask for payment on the day or prior to the move and this can be made by bank transfer or credit/debit card.

You will need to ring and book a surveyor  to attend your property to provide a formal quote. If you are out of the local area we can send you an enquiry form or set up a zoom survey.

We advise that you book your removals company survey at least 6 weeks before planning on moving.

We will aim to have you loaded and ready to go between 12-2pm and unload by 5pm that day.

We can provide long or short term storage either in our warehouse containers or self-access rooms based in Preston & Blackpool.

We are more than happy for you to pack your own items into boxes and we will even supply you with boxes and tape. Alternatively why not let us do all the hard work and pack for you with our dedicated packing team.

If you are able to dismantle the furniture before we arrive, this will save a lot of time on the move day. We understand that not everyone will be able to or want to so we also offer a dismantling service.
