James Removals is a well-known, established family business employing a fully trained, and smartly uniformed, workforce. All staff members, from the office to unpackers, are carefully selected for their courtesy and experience. This is to maintain our high standards and the continued satisfaction of our customers.

James Removals, based in Blackheath, London SE3, is recognised as a professional mover throughout London and Kent and is recommended by several estate agents in areas such as Bromley, Beckenham and Greenwich. James Removals carries out efficient home or office removals to both UK and international destinations, including travelling to France, Spain and Ireland. With our long journeys in mind we try to stay as eco-friendly as possible: our latest edition exceeds Euro 6 standards, decreasing the amount of emissions contributed to the environment. Furthermore, we also carry out export packing and shipping from our very own depot. From beginning to end, James Removals will gladly guide you throughout your move with our professional, hardworking staff, modern vehicles and secure storage facilities.

The original family removal business began more than 35 years ago and James Removals was founded in 1996. Originally based at small premises in Bromley, the company has now grown to its present purpose-built 30,000 sq ft headquarters including a 10,000 sq ft warehouse for storage; and from a single Luton Transit to a modern fleet of comprising 17 vehicles – from an estate car to a 34-ton road train – plus three trailers. Using the latest technology, we now have the capacity to handle up to 14 separate moves per day.

Now based in Blackheath, London SE3, James Removals is recognised as a professional mover throughout London and Kent, and we are members of the British Association of Removers. Recommended by established estate agents throughout Bromley, Beckenham, Greenwich and many other areas, we believe our main asset is our first class service and we will therefore only expand our business if we can ensure the same levels of efficiency and courtesy towards our customers are maintained.

Our purpose-built fleet has the capability to carry out local, national and international removals. And with a team of experienced packers, plus storage facilities with CCTV, monitored alarm and on-site security, you can rest assured our service will cater for every need.

James Removals April 2022

The James packing removal team were on time, well prepared an equipped and completed the loading ahead of the planned time. The delivery team were in regular contact on their journey giving a countdown to their eta. The unloading was as smooth as the packing which was stacked neatly in the correct room order.

Exceptional service from this outstanding company.The process was well organised and the guidance given was very helpful. The whole team during our complex move were brilliant and nothing seemed to phase them. Their energy was immense and their attention to detail was impressive. They did all the lifting, dismantling and even cleaned up afterwards.Moving is a stressful process but the James team made it more like an adventure.Special mention to Pam in the office who is a amazing .

As always the removal team of 5 were so accommodating in every way . Nothing was too much trouble very caring and polite . They made my mother feel atease at what was an emotional time for her. When we were moving her into her newhouse the team were highly efficient even though we didn’t get the keys till very late into the afternoon. This company are 5* in every way.

Both Craig and Richard were helpful

Both Craig and Richard were helpful, friendly and extremely efficient in their delivery to my apartment during the last weekend of March 2022. I couldn't recommend James Removals more highly. They took great care with a 200 year old enormous mahogany bureau.

Excellent Removals Company

James Removals team were very professional, friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend their service. I had the full pack and move service plus the storage option - it was worth every penny. The items were well wrapped and the team delivered the items exactly where I asked them to.

Fantastic Service

James, Pam and the team have been amazing over the last 2 years. I had to vacate my rental property remotely at the start of Covid and the team were on hand to complete the removal to storage. I then wanted to access my belongings and James offered a great solution, and also helped me move my things into a new storage facility on site which means I can now get to my things much easier. Awesome, and thoroughly recommend James and the team.

We initially chose James Removals because of the clear information on their website. We were not disappointed. The quote process was simple. We went for the full pack option. From the outset Gary, Nancy and Liam were polite, friendly and incredibly efficient throughout our move from south London to Littlehampton They kept us informed of what was happening at all tines. They worked amazingly hard to ensure that everything was where we wanted it and even moved some items on more than one occasion because of our indecision. This was our first move in 20 years. Should we ever move again we would not hesitate to contact the team at James Removals.

Excellent is the only word I can use about the team at James Removals. From the pre-moving assessment, supply of boxes and removal materials through to the care and attention that they showed our property on the actual removal day, these guys were excellent. Helpful, pleasant, and light hearted in a good way, on what is for many a very stressful day, the team at James removals moved us with a minimum of fuss. We've used them before and we'll use them again when the time comes...

Avoid at all costs: incompetent, inconsiderate and insensitive

Avoid this company at all costs. I used James Removals for a simple flat to house move. The initial communications were fine and we were provided with details of the move. There were a number of items that were unsatisfactory and went wrong on the day. They treated are belongings as if they were worthless. They dragged our beds and mattresses across dirty outdoors surfaces. No sign of the "blankets" to protect things as mentioned during the quote. They left our belongings completely unattended in an open van. This was completely unacceptable especially after we had been charged more for a third person when booking as we were told someone had to "stay with the van". Once the load was complete we waited for the van to arrive. The van arrived outside and for some unknown reason remained there for 2 hours after which unloading began. No reason was given for the delay. The unloading began and was just as haphazard as the loading. Our boxes were labelled with rooms there were supposed to be left in. The team were unable to comprehend these simple instructions and randomly left boxes in different rooms. They then proceeded to use both our upstairs and downstairs loos without asking permission. The move was during the COVID pandemic and we couldn't understand why a) they didn't ask our permission b) use a single toilet. We did complain to the company after our move and nothing was done. James Removals were incompetent, inconsiderate and insensitive.

James Removals recently took care of my house move. This was my second experience with the company. They first moved me 22 years ago which is why I came back to them this time. Although the company has really grown I was delighted to see they retain their lovely friendly, professional and reliable approach to moving. I felt looked after from the get-go. I really liked the fact they sent someone to my home to assess my moving needs rather than asking me to send them a video. Whenever I rang to update about my move they were always supportive and reassuring. On the day Tony and Liam were awesome! They were friendly, capable, swift but careful. They regularly checked in with me about where I wanted things to go and nothing was too much trouble. So I’m calling them the Dream Team! Heartfelt thanks to everyone at James Removals. You definitely took all the potential stress and anxiety out of my move. I will return when I need to move again and I’ll be recommending you to family and friends.

Thank you so much to all of the people who helped move us over 3 days from 28 -30 October. We had a fair mixture of good and bad weather but the crews remained incredibly positive and motivated to get the job done. Nothing was too much trouble and I would highly recommend using James Removals if you are looking for a competitively priced but high quality service. You get a lot of additional extras in the assembly of beds and getting appliances up and running. A huge shout out to Glen and Frank who are just amazing people. Thank you James Removals for making our move so much fun as well.

Great people, great service.

Moving into storage
Notwithstanding the fact that all removals firms were incredibly busy to meet the stamp duty holiday deadline we had superb service from initial enquiry right through to completion of the move. The whole James team from the office staff through to the removals crew are courteous, professional and clearly know their stuff. The crew were incredibly careful in the way the handled our belongings and the property. I would recommend them unreservedly and without hesitation.

Excellent Job - Thank you

We used James removals to move 2 family homes (one in Kent & one in London) in one location. The guys were with us for 3 days only stopping for their lunch breaks. Nothing was to much trouble and they went that extra mile over the 3 days. I'm not intending to move again for a very long time but if for some reason i have to i would not hesitate to use the guys from James Removals. Packing, moving, unpacking all done in a very professional way. Thank you

read the small print

Whilst everything generally went well, a valuable item was dropped and badly damaged by one of their operatives and we were assured we would be covered by insurance. However, James Removals refused to make any contribution. Be careful if you pack anything yourself as they won't cover it. Would not use them again or recommend them

Great service

We were about to use Coppards, but were dissuaded by the owner of the house we were buying, who had used them in 2015 and found them unsatisfactory. I am very glad we chose James Removals instead. Michael packed and was simply amazing - he packed our whole house in 6 hours, and having now unpacked everything, we've marvelled at how well everything was wrapped and packed - not a single breakage. The move day went like clockwork, and the team even assembled our beds at the new house.
