Mark Ratcliffe began in the removals industry back in 1982 when he opened a second hand shop with just one Luton van in Hampden Park, Eastbourne. Through the 80's and 90's, the business grew and in 1995, we specialised in overseas moving. In 1997, we joined The British Association of Removers (BAR) and from there, we became the largest independent mover in Sussex. We now employ 28 full time staff, and have a range of 11 trucks and 4 trailers. We have two warehouses in Eastbourne totalling 26,000 sqft and have 750 warehouse containers.
We offer Brighton an unrivalled Worldwide and European Removals service for all commercial or domestic clients. We are proud to work closely with worldwide agents in over 200 countries, which ensures your move goes ahead smoothly and without any hiccups. Your shipment will be tracked from your UK port of discharge, through customs, and all the way to your new location. We will be able to deliver, unwrap and set up your goods for you so you can relax and focus on other aspects of your move.
Moving abroad is becoming increasingly popular due to increasing opportunities abroad and transport being so accessible. You may choose to move abroad for many reasons - education, business or just starting a new life abroad. Whatever the reason may be - our team are more than happy to help. We are all fully qualified and insured to tackle any move abroad. We love what we do and love putting a smile on the customer's face. Our service is so exceptional due to our team prioritising customer service and the safety of your belongings. We always treat your goods as if they were our own, handling them with care and attention to detail. We are proud to have grown into a removals company with an excellent reputation for international moves - providing professional and dependable service.
Once you have enquired, we get to know your exact requirements so that we can devise a plan which suits your needs and budget. We transport your goods via road, shipment and air - whatever method may be the most effective. If you do not have the time to pack or don't feel confident packing effectively for such a long journey, we offer a superb packing service. We safely pack all of your belongings using our reliable, specialist packing tools and materials. We also can unpack your goods too at your new destination if this is something you require. If you would prefer to pack yourself, we advise you to use our high quality packing materials which can be purchased from our shop. We stock a large range of various size cartons which are double walled for extra strength, and 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 help with international commercial moves. We have all of the tools to make sure your move runs smoothly, including A3 plastic stacking crates for files, dollies and trucks to help with all office and commercial moves. Furniture dismantling and reassembling is also available. We offer storage options for all clients, household and commercial in the form of warehouse containers or storage rooms - whichever suits you. A full inventory of your goods is taken upon depositary and you are charged by the day, so you only pay for the period which your goods are stored. We work on a flexible basis and operate 7 days a week, so we are available on weekends and bank holidays should you require us.
