We would strongly recommended that a pre-move consultation is carried out prior to any international removal, either by a house visit or a video appointment. This will allow our move consultants to gather all the relevant information required to ensure an efficient and well-planned move. They will access the volume of goods to be moved, packing requirements, discuss the transfer options and any other additional services you may require.

Mr Foulkes


"A thoroughly positive experience. Removal team were very polite and helpful all day, a very cheerful, professional crew, when we arrived at new house they were already to unload. They worked very hard and hardly stopped all day. There was no damage to property or items, the crew are very keen to position furniture exactly where we wanted it. A really good day."

Tim Squire-Sanders, Branch Manager, Bonhams

Branch Manager, Bonhams

"Beckwith removals have been our recommended carriers of Fine Art for the last 20 years and have provided a very professional service. I feel this is down to the years of experience amongst their staff which really comes through when removing difficult items which other carriers may shake their heads over."

Maxine & Brian Tyler


We would like to express our gratitude for the very professional and smooth services you provided for the move to our new home last week. The team worked hard and were very thorough, tidy and organised. They were very polite and also a calming influence during a fraught day for us.
