Since our humble beginnings in York back in 2008, we’ve taken great delight in expanding our sphere of operations to include more of this wonderful part of the country. With being so close to the city, the lovely village of Strensall was an early addition to our growing list of locations, and it’s somewhere we’ve continued to love returning to again and again. 

It’s true to say that we know Strensall like the back of our hands. Being on the River Foss definitely gives the village a wow factor, while nearby Strensall Common, run by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, is a real mecca for wildlife and walkers (including off-the-clock removals specialists!) With a thriving sense of community, a buzzing calendar of events and activities and great local amenities, including schools, hairdressers, GP’s surgery, and cosy pubs, it’s easy to forget just how close to York you are. 

Our services are, of course, available throughout the whole of the area, and we can often be seen helping families, students and businesses move from Strensall to the city centre, however, no matter where you need to move to, whether it’s locally, nationally, or even internationally, we can get you there.

University removals for Strensall’s students

From the moment you get your acceptance letter the excitement of moving on to your new adventure is palpable, but one thing you may not initially consider is the cost that can be involved with moving from your family home to halls or student digs with your essential items. 

We’re proud to have moved many students from Strensall to the university of their choice, whether that’s locally in York, or further afield. Our competitive prices and unrivalled service standards ensure that the process is as stress free and smooth as possible, meaning you can say your goodbyes, concentrate on settling in, and start making friends, safe in the knowledge that your goods will be delivered to you safely.

As well as helping Strensall’s students with their initial moves, we’ve also been called upon to help move people between homes in their university city, and in moving back to the family home during holidays or after graduation. 

Don’t forget to ask about our student discount! 

Barracks Removals in Strensall

We understand that those stationed at Queen Elizabeth Barracks (or other military sites) may, on occasion, be required to move to another part of the country as and when their role demands it, which is why we offer special discounts to service men and women moving to and from Strensall. Being a local business doesn’t mean that we’re tied to the area, we’re happy to help you move anywhere in the UK, or from anywhere in the UK.
