Our founder Reg Burns has worked in the removal trade for more than fifty years and still, he remains at the heart of the company, moving families into their new homes as Burns Removal Services since 1982. 
Reg's son Rob continues to work alongside Reg and at various times both Rob' s sons and nephew have worked to maintain the family moving business tradition. As a company we have been trading for 37 years through thick and thin! In the early years we learnt our trade on corporate moves, fully export packing household goods and effects prior to be sent across the world. Nowadays, we retain the packing skills learnt back then but apply them to the local removals that we now specialise in. 
For the last twenty years we have moved hundreds of families all over the country and into Europe, even the odd one around the world! We can move the largest mansion down to a single item and many of our trained staff are licensed to carry out detailed airline hand search security checks.
