    Why Move to Shaftesbury With Armishaws…

    We don’t believe in hard sell, that’s why we wouldn’t shout about our BAR (British Association of Removers) accreditation. We might not mention that we’re a Wincanton based, family-owned business that have been operating since 1973. We might overlook our industry beating green credentials and environmental pledge. We would probably tell you about our high levels of customer service and training program for all our staff. But mostly, rather than noisy sales patter, we’d invite you to read the many 5-star reviews from our many happy customers on independent review site Trust Pilot and see for yourself why we’re the South West’s leading removal service.

    Then we’ll be happy to provide you with a FREE QUOTE.

    About Shaftesbury

    Dating back to 880AD Shaftesbury is a quaint and attractive town with historic buildings, modern shops and cafes, great restaurants and bars, nestled in some of the most spectacular countryside. The town formed its routes thanks in part to the Abbey built by Alfred the Great and presided over by his daughter, the first abbess. Today the town has wealth of independent stores and is ideally suited to explore the many villages and places of outstanding natural beauty in the area.
