Where it all began ...

The Shires Removal Group was born in 1989 from the parent company of P. Sweeting Removals and Storage, a family run business, which was established in 1974. This company then joined with other companies covering all of the shire counties including Yorkshire, Lancashire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire giving us national coverage.

The head office is now located in Kinsley, West Yorkshire where the central storage warehouse of 1,500,000 cubic feet is used entirely for containerised storage of customers’ furniture and belongings.

Going the extra mile…

We can provide you with all the packing materials required in connection with your removal. We supply specially produced wardrobe cartons to hang your clothes in during transit and also linen cartons and other cartons specially produced for the removal industry.

As well as all the packing materials, our vehicles are equipped with approximately 150 thick woollen blankets. Other equipment provided includes piano wheels, sack carts and special stair climbing trolleys. As you can see, we are a well established company with all the correct equipment to undertake your removal.

The moving crew was great. They came on time and finished my packing, moving and unpacking faster than I ever could have! Amazing service and more than fair prices!

Courteous and Helpful

At a time when being critical of others seems to be the fashionable thing to do, I take the pleasure in being able to commend the performance of your operatives for the job they did for the housing department last week.

The team, led by Andy worked extremely hard and were both courteous and helpful and remained very patient when we asked for ‘in some cases’ furniture to be moved twice. They were all a credit to your company and we look forward to using you again in the future.

Thank you and your team for all your efforts

This note is quite simply to thank you and your team for all your efforts in assisting us in opening the new hotel in Leeds. Particular thanks to Peter & Berni who were in at the sharp end to the death. Thanks again and I have not forgotten dinner when I’m up in Leeds in the New Year!

Did everything possible to make the move go smoothly

On Thursday 4th May we moved home from Roston Drive, Hinkley to Brookside in Burbage with the help of Peter & Brian from your company.

We felt we had to write and say what a good job they did. As well as being extremely efficient and very smart, they were both very friendly and did everything possible to make the move go smoothly.

They are a credit to your company and should we ever decide to move again, we will certainly be giving you a call.
