Mr Shifter Removals and Storage was founded more than 40 years ago in Redcar by Jim Gray. The company now has branches spread around England and helps its customers move locally and also nationally and even internationally.

The company works with both domestic and commercial customers and offers a market-leading removals service which is competitively priced so also offers great value for money and is covered by full liability insurance. All of Mr Shifter’s staff are permanently employed by the company and professionally trained to the British Association of Removers standard with years of experience in the removals industry.

As well as removals, Mr Shifter also offers a safe and secure fully insured container storage solution in London.

Mr Shifter remains a family company – big enough to cope with all its customers’ removal needs but small and local enough to understand the individual requirements of each customer. This focus on customer service has resulted in more than 95% of new business coming from either customers’ recommendation or the company’s reputation.

All of Mr Shifter’s vehicles are packed with equipment to help protect all of the customer’s goods during transit and handling and the company can provide cartons, bubble wrap and other equipment if required.
