Furniture Hoist

We have a furniture hoist service for any large or heavy items that won’t physically fit through the internal restrictions of the property on a residential or office move.

Do you have large or heavy items with restrictive access? We offer a furniture hoist service which is perfect for large items that do not physically fit through the property especially in property restrictions such as lift or stairs. It is also perfect for heavy items that are too heavy for manual lifting and require machinery. It is ideal for moving large items such as sofas or pianos into a residential house with restrictive access. When it comes to office moves this provides the same service and can rapidly increase the speed and pace of the removal or relocation.

Pre-move consultation

It is vital for us to gather all of the relevant information prior to the move. We will need to know about access, parking, property restrictions, office requirements, window access, amount of items and their weight and size in order for us to come fully prepared with the suitable lift or hoist required and to enable us to complete all of the preparation appropriately to ensure a safe and professional move. A risk assessment will also be carried out.


Preparation is essential, and we are more than happy to organise and carry out all of the following. It is important to make sure appropriate parking suspensions are in place or the area has been cleared, any necessary windows have been removed if required, items in the property have been packed and prepared before the hoist arrives and a cleared space if items are being delivered.

Safe moving

We have a highly experienced team and trained operators to safely and professionally use our furniture hoists. There are safety flaps on the hoists to secure items once loaded and correct packing and preparation of the items is essential. Our risk assessment will have been carried out on the pre-move consultation and all safety precautions will be in place.


If your items are too large for your new property, storage may be required. We can provide secure storage facilities which are climate-controlled, alarmed and CCTV monitored. We offer storage solutions on a short-term or long-term basis to meet your requirements.

Happy Clients Everywhere

Don’t just take our word for it, take a look at what some of our clients have said about our removal services.

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."

John White

Managing Director, Cordek Ltd

"From the moment your co-ordinator arrived to survey our move to the signing off with your foreman on completion. The whole operation was carried out with understanding, precision, care and professionalism. This resulted in the minimum disruption to our business. All of us at Cordek would like to place on our record our thanks to job well done."

"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."
