The Movers and Storers Show 2015

Jul 06, 2015
The Movers and Storers Show returns to Silverstone on Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16 September. This event, established in 2008, remains the UK’s biggest trade show for the removals and storage sector.


If you haven’t made it to the event before, it’s worth a visit – you’ll meet new suppliers, see lots of trucks and equipment, and meet plenty of industry colleagues.


Of course one of its key attractions is that the show is completely free to attend for anyone who works within the industry. You just need to go online or call the organisers to register in advance.

Although the exhibition forms the heart of the event, there are plenty of other visitor features as well. The Simpson Packaging Packer of the Year Competition has built up a strong reputation since its introduction four years ago, and was hotly contested in 2014. MGR Removals eventually lifted the trophy, and Matthew James beat off the competition to win the coveted Truck Show award, also a firm favourite amongst visitors. Both competitions will be back this year and will take place on the Wednesday.

The Learning Zone auditorium is also a key part of the event, with industry issues ranging from legislation to marketing routinely being covered. This year insurance expert Basil Fry & Co are sponsoring this feature, and with its support the organisers have some ambitious plans. Last year, two sessions in particular were hugely popular: the ‘Moving Day Mayhem – surely something can be done?’ debate, and Paul Evans’ presentation about his life in the removals industry. Hopefully there will be more headline speakers that fill the auditorium again in 2015.

The Networking Lounge, supported by brand new sponsor Manage My Moves, will return this year. This popular hangout in the heart of the show gives attendees and exhibitors the chance to relax and connect with each other in the very centre of the exhibition.

There are also a number of changes and additions to the event for 2015.

  • The Twenty Ci Web & Social Media Clinic –This feature will be staffed by experts giving free advice and support to anyone who may need a helping hand with setting up or improving their social media presence or company website. Appointments can be booked in advance or on the day.
  • The Movers and Storers Show Party Night will take place on Tuesday 15 September at Whittlebury Hall (five minutes from Silverstone), and is being opened up to attendees as well as exhibitors this year. Anyone who works in the industry is welcome to attend and tickets can be purchased through the show organisers.
  • There are whispers of possible large-scale equipment demonstrations in the paddock area but nothing has been confirmed yet.
  • Silverstone has confirmed that there will be track events on throughout the show, so visitors should get the chance to see some great racing action.


There are now just a handful of exhibition stands available, so if you have a product or service to sell to movers and storers and you want to get involved, contact Claire Hopper as soon as possible on 07445 849 139 or claire@animo-events.co.uk.

To get your free tickets, go to the event website which is www.themoversandstorersshow.co.uk. If you need to contact the organisers, you can call them on 02392 736 539.
