Moving to a new home is one of the most exciting events in life and, by choosing Pickfords as your partner for the day, you can be sure everything will go as planned.

We have been moving people’s valued possessions for generations, and we know that each one of our customers is different. We are committed to understanding your unique requirements and providing a service to suit you.

Tailored removal plans

Our people are trained to understand the importance of service, and customer satisfaction is our highest priority. We believe understanding your exact requirements is the key to a successful move, which is why we work closely with you to create a tailored move to suit your needs.

Our approach to quality

We aim to provide the highest possible quality of service. This is underpinned by our Moving with Quality initiative, combination of proactive listening to our customers, unique moving technology and regular skills training for our staff.

Professionally trained removal teams

Our removal teams undergo regular training in packing and loading techniques, as well as health and safety training to ensure the safety of the teams and customers. Pickfords is committed to improving security and providing peace of mind.

We ensure every employee that enters our customer’s homes undergoes a complete DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.

A national network of branches

We are the UK’s largest moving and storage company, covering every postcode across the country.

Our national resources give you total flexibility. We arrange for the local branch at your new property to check access prior to your move, draft in extra resources if required and arrange local storage close to your new home.

We are an accredited mover

We are a founding member of the British Association of Removers (BAR) and are committed to its Code of Practice. The code sets out the industry standards for service, trading, advertising and complaints handling and is designed to help members maintain the highest standards of service and to protect their customers’ interests.

We're committed to a greener future

We are committed to a greener future and have created systems to reduce waste and pollution generated by our business activities. Our packing materials are environmentally friendly and we recycle cardboard, wood, paper, printer cartridges and office waste.

We support the community

Our business is involved in our local communities and we encourage our employees to actively use their resources, skills and knowledge to support local community projects.

We offer a range of packing services

We offer a range of packing services to suit you. You can choose to pack your cartons yourself, and we can provide you with packing materials ahead of move day. You can choose to pack some of your goods yourself, but arrange to have our professional packing teams to pack your most fragile items. Alternatively you can opt for our full packing service, which means you can sit back and let the professionals pack everything on move day.

Insurance options

Protecting your goods throughout the moving and storage process is very important, which is why we provide a choice of insurances designed especially to protect your goods in transit and in store.

Waivers to save you money

We know that events beyond your control can delay your move, which is why we have created ‘Late Key’ and ‘Cancellation’ Waivers, to ensure you don’t have to pay additional costs if the unexpected happens.

Secure storage

Our secure storage options allow you to store anything from a single item to the entire contents of your home, for as long as you need. You can choose to store at any of our secure facilities around the country. We collect your household effects and deliver them back to you when you need them.

We offer Man and Van services

If you’re moving a small number of items locally,  our Man and Van service offers great value on a budget. The price is based on an hourly rate, and by using our trained resources you are still provided the same excellent service.

Pickfords Gold service

If you are looking for more than a move, Pickfords Gold is the service for you. Designed for owners of homes of distinction, we deliver a wide range of additional services, including a move in service, cleaning service and handyman.
