House removal specialists in Thorne

Thorne’s list of transport options is an enviable one for a town of any size, with two train stations, easy access to two major motorways, and four bus services meaning the bright lights of Doncaster, York and Leeds are never too far away. Add to this good schools, great local services and a network of walking and cycle routes and it’s easy to see why demand for our house removal services has increased so much over the years. We’re experts in moving people to and from a whole host of residential settings, so whether you’ve bought your first terraced house in Pashley Road, or you’re moving out of a flat in Lakeside Mews to a detached house in St. Michaels Close, we’re the smart choice for a stress-free, affordable move.  

We’ve got fantastic working knowledge of the local area thanks to our exceptional team, but we’re also happy to work well beyond the borders of Yorkshire, even internationally if our customers require it! 

About Thorne

Thorne might only be 10 miles or so from Doncaster, but making the journey along the A18 past flat, open fields beneath the dramatic skies feels almost like travelling to another country. Factor in old windmills, a canal, and a history of Dutch-inspired land drainage and it’s little wonder this busy town is often referred to as ‘Little Holland’.

We’re usually kept nice and busy helping local residents and business owners with a whole host of transport solutions, but when we do have a minute or two to ourselves, you can often find us grabbing a quick sandwich and a flask of tea in the Community Woods. That or a slice of cake and a coffee in one of the many lovely establishments around Finkle Street! 

With plenty of years under our belts helping residents of the DN7 area with their every need, we’re confident that we can do the same for you. From large jobs like home and office removals, to the picking up or delivery of a single item.

Anchors away! 

With the Stainforth & Keady Canal flowing through the town, opening up routes to Doncaster, Goole, Leeds, Selby and York, enjoying some well-earned rest and relaxation on the water is a popular pastime for residents and visitors alike. If you need something large or bulky delivered to your own boat, or you’ve been splashing out on lots of new equipment at the Staniland Marina chandlery shop, we’ve got the services to pick up and drop off what you need, where you need it.
