Our Commitment to the Community
At Shires Removals Group, we’ve always believed in the power of community. For us, it’s not just about offering top-notch removal and storage services; it’s also about being a responsible corporate citizen.

The Power of Warm Winter Coats
When the mercury drops and the cold winds blow, a warm winter coat can make all the difference. It’s not just a piece of clothing; it’s a shield against the bitter cold. For many vulnerable people, having access to a warm winter coat can mean the world. This is why our coat collection drive has become the cornerstone of our initiative.

Our partnership with Safestore has enabled us to collaborate with a network of 100 charities across the region. These charitable organizations are working tirelessly to support vulnerable individuals, particularly the homeless, women, and children. By extending our reach and resources through these charities, we aim to have a more profound impact on our community.
Collection Points Across the Region
We have set up convenient collection points at various locations, including Shires Removals Group’s offices and Safestore branches. You can find us at Shires Removals Group, located at 202-208 Cheetham Hill, Manchester, and Safestore Oldham at 189 Manchester Road, Oldham, OL8 4PS. Additionally, you can drop off your donated coats at Safestore Altrincham, 1-2 Atlantic Street, Altrincham, or Safestore Central Miller Street, Newtown.
