Removal of General Sir David Richards
at Kensington Palace

removals image"I know a good bunch when I see them!"

A highly successful move was carried out within Kensington Palace by Armishaws Removals.



removals imageThe move for General Sir David Richards, Chief of Defence Staff, carried out on behalf of Agility GRMS, during the week of the 6th August; relocating some 6,000 cubic feet to a new apartment within Kensington Palace. Walls and floors were protected throughout with plywood boards, balustrades wrapped in high density bubble wrap and doors shielded with door protectors.


Pieces of high value silverware, glass and china were expertly wrapped, inventoried and packed. Numerous pictures were wrapped and crated along with many pieces of fine furniture.

The move carried out by a team of six was completed in four days, exactly to schedule much to the delight of General and Lady Richards. Not a single piece of damage or breakage occurred.

The crew were thanked in person by the General who gave them each a limited edition commemorative coin in thanks for a job well done. The General said "I know a good bunch of men when I see them and you certainly fit the bill."

We received the following note from Jules Tranter, the General's Aide de Camp:

"Please thank your boys again from General and Lady Richards for a fantastic move. After having done 31 moves in his forces career this was the best. The staff were so professional, accommodating and helpful."

Well done boys!
