Whatever your requirements, we’ll work to give you the move you want.

    Some restrictions may apply if you’re moving overseas (some goods have to be left unpacked due to international custom laws). Any items dangerous/hazardous items are considered on a case-by-case basis.

    What Can’t We Pack?

    We don’t move and therefore cannot pack any livestock, pets or perishable foods. We should also point out as a family-owned company we don’t pack children.

    • Paints
    • Ammunition
    • Explosives
    • Deeds

    Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

    Here’s what our customers say about Armishaws…

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.

    - Helen Williams – May 2021
