Helping to move York’s students

Over the many years that we’ve been helping students move to and from the University of York and York St John University, we like to think we’ve picked up more than a little understanding of their specific needs and expectations. Whether that’s being available at short notice for emergency moves, or offering student discounts to help those tight budgets stretch that little bit further. 

We’ve enjoyed helping students take that big step from leaving their family homes across the country to move to one of York’s halls of residence, second and third year students move to areas such Fishergate, The Groves and Lawrence Street, and alumni move back home again, wherever that might be in the country. 

If you’re about to start your undergraduate course, why not make sure moving-stress isn’t another thing to worry about and let the professionals get you there hassle-free and ready to start your new life - with a few home comforts of course!
