We are an Insured Remover meaning that our blanket insurance covers all goods under our care. This is a new category, in light of legislation on insurance that came into effect in January 2005. Very few removal or storage firms now offer insurance; most merely offer a very limited form of liability. We have arranged for our own insurance to cover our customer's goods whilst in transit or in storage, putting us streets ahead of the competition.

Domestic Removals

Every removal requires a brief survey of your property and goods. Our estimator needs to gauge the quantity of goods to be moved, understand any access constraints and determine if any specialised equipment will be needed during the removal. Several trips and an inadequately sized vehicle could be false economy.


We undertake any size of consignment for a competitive price. Recent moves range from relocating one filing cabinet within an existing office space to moving the entire contents of an office complex to completely new premises at the other end of the country.
Purpose made covers avoid damage to your goods whilst they are in transit and the large range of carts, trolleys and lifting gear at our disposal mean that we always have the right equipment for any relocation. In order to minimise your corporate 'down time' during the move our flexible workforce can also accommodate evening and weekend removals where necessary.

We also offer the added security of our comprehensive insurance package. As Insured Removers our insurance policy covers your goods whilst they are in storage or transit, subject to standard terms and conditions.

From Our Website

Our uniformed, polite & friendly staff are fully trained in relocation methodology and will carry out your work with a high level of safety and proficiency in mind. Our high security, purpose built warehouse is fully protected by security fencing, 24 hour CCTV and our fire and security alarms connect directly with the authorities. Furthermore, our storage facilities are utilised by many leading Bradford, Leeds and Halifax based removals companies. As BAR (British Association of Removers) members, we are committed to a high standard of service which is required by the BAR TSI Code of Practice and must comply with annual inspections to maintain this standard.

We are a local company based in Shipley and have been successfully trading since 1867. We have a modern fleet of specialised removal vehicles, which vary in size, to allow us to accommodate more or less any size of removal within the United Kingdom and Europe. Additionally, our workforce is fully trained in all aspects of packing, moving, storage and shipping. When estimating a removal, we are able to offer a full range of packing services, insurance of your effects and even short or long-term storage options.

We bring the empty container to your property, load your items into it, seal the container on site and then bring it back to our purpose built warehouse. Storage is charged on a daily basis per container and re-delivery of your goods can be arranged to suit you. Collection and delivery fees are dependant on distance and ease of access.

Expert removers work on a method. Every piece of furniture is handled with respect, expedition and care. It is worthwhile to pay the right people for knowing how to do the work properly - and it is cheaper in the end. Experience has taught us how your treasured possessions should be loaded, packed and unloaded.

The container rental is competitively priced and charged on a daily basis. Our warehouse is open for deliveries from 07:30 to 17:00 Mon-Fri and Saturday mornings by appointment. A handling fee would only apply for this service should you require access your goods outside of our weekday office hours.

Forward your excess baggage via our air cargo services to reduce the cost significantly and to reduce the amount of luggage you have to carry. We collect the excess suitcases, trunks etc from your home and the next time you see them is at your destination. This service is very useful for shipment of tools or study textbooks that you will need soon after you arrive. Transit time is about 4-7 days after collection from your premises, dependant on your destination. For larger and less time sensitive shipments including Furniture and Household Effects or heavy items such as large quantities of books or study notes, we offer a seafreight service using only recognised and reliable shipping lines to the port nearest to your destination.
