Mark Ratcliffe started in the removals industry in 1982 with a second hand shop and single Luton van in Hampden Park, Eastbourne. Throughout the 80's and 90's, the business went from strength to strength and in 1995, we started to specialise in overseas moving. We joined The British Association of Removers (BAR) in 1997 and quickly became the largest independent mover in Sussex. We employ 28 full time staff, operate 11 trucks and 4 trailers. We have two warehouses in Eastbourne totalling 26,000 sqft and hold 750 warehouse containers.

"Dear Mark, Thank you for the excellent way that you transported all my belongings from Eastbourne to Sakon Nakhon, Thailand. Everything arrived in good condition and exactly in the timeframe that you had told me. The delivery company accepted that I changed the delivery address without any hassle so everything was delivered to my new home. The guys who delivered were excellent. They were very polite and courteous and spoke excellent English. I can thoroughly recommend your service which, for me, was efficient and worry free."
