In 1982, Mark Ratcliffe opened a second hand shop in Hampden Park, Eastbourne with just one single Luton Van. Throughout the 80's and 90's, the business developed and finally in 1995, we started specialising in overseas moving. In 1997, we joined The British Association of Removers (BAR) and from this point, we grew into the largest independent mover in Sussex. Currently, we employ 28 full time staff members and have 11 trucks and 4 trailers. We are lucky enough to have gained two warehouses in Eastbourne, totalling 26,000 sqft and have 750 warehouse containers.
We offer our international removals service to all commercial and domestic clients whether they are travelling within Europe or further afield. We work with agents in over 200 countries, which gives us the ability to ensure your move goes ahead as smoothly as possible. Your shipment will be tracked from you UK port of discharge, through customs, and all the way to your new destination. We are also more than happy to unwrap and set up your goods for you at your new location.
Moving abroad is a popular choice today because of the increasing opportunities abroad and the ability to travel being so easy. No matter what your reasoning may be for moving abroad, we are more than happy to help with no questions asked. Our team are all fully qualified and insured to undertake any moving project abroad. We are enthusiastic and enjoy providing unbeatable service to all of our clients. We always prioritise getting your belongings to their new location safely and efficiently. We handle your goods as if they were our own -with extreme care. We take pride in our superb reputation for providing reliable and professional international moves every time.
We get to know our clients on an individual basis in order to devise a plan which suits your requirements and budget. We transport your goods via road, air and shipping - whichever method is the most effective. We also offer a packing service for clients who do not have the time or confidence to pack effectively themselves. Our specially trained staff safely pack all of your goods using specialist tools and materials. We can unpack your goods at your new destination if required. However, if you decide you would like to pack your goods yourself, we recommend using our high quality packing materials which can be purchased from our shop. We offer a variety of sized cartons which are double walled for extra strength, plain paper, tissue paper, bubble wrap and 2" vinyl tape. We even offer portable wardrobe cartons to keep your clothes clean and crease free.
We can assist with international commercial moves. We use tools like A3 plastic stacking crates for files, dollies and trucks to ensure your commercial move runs smoothly. Furniture dismantling and reassembling is also available, should you require this service. We offer storage options for all domestic and commercial clients including warehouse containers or storage rooms. A full inventory of your goods is taken upon depositary and you will be charged by the day, so you only pay for the period which your goods are stored. We work flexibly and 7 days a week - so we are available on weekends and bank holidays if you require.
