Above all else, Hughes Removals have experience. Established in 1948 we remain as committed to good old fashioned high standards as we were then and our philosophy has not changed. We are still a local firm, serving local people at the best possible prices.

We know that moving home or office is a major event in your life and often a notoriously stressful one. We aim to reduce your stress with our friendly, professional and very efficient service. As well as our removals service, we are storage specialists and can even do the packing for you if required!

You can feel comfortable in the knowledge that we are members of BAR (The British Association of Removers). BAR is the largest established and recognised trade association for removal companies. All member companies must meet strict standards and are regularly inspected to ensure that their facilities, equipment, staff training and operational procedures remain at the highest level. In fact fewer than 700 removal companies in the whole of the UK can claim to meet the stringent and high standards required.

Would highly recommend, the lads were great who moved my stuff. Was surprised how quick they did it, no messing around. Thank you to Hughes removals my move has been stress free

The three lads who helped us move were not only friendly, but were speedy, careful and efficient too. There was no damage whatsoever to either property (1st floor flats) and over 60 big boxes, leather settee and leather armchair, fridge and washer/dryer, computer and monitor arrived unscathed. Thank you.

Friendly, efficient service, removals men worked very hard and Melvin was very helpful with the quotation visit also supplying lots of boxes, packing tape and paper as part of the extremely reasonable price. We recommend Hughes without hesitation and will use them again in the future.

Thank you for an excellent move. Despite access problems with our house they managed to troubleshoot and went the extra mile to get us moved on time!

Professional, courteous and competitively priced. Would definitely use again...
