The independent voice of the global moving industry


Britannia moves into new HQ

Feb 16, 2017
Britannia Movers International has moved into its new purpose-built head office in Merstham, Surrey.

The new building will be the hub for Britannia’s national corporate accounts and shipping operations.

Faced with a severe shortage of suitable commercial property for sale in the Surrey area, Britannia decided to build its own shiny new office and warehouse on a brown-field site close to junction 7 of the M25.

Being next to the M25 motorway will make it much easier for Britannia members to access than the old HQ in Croydon, which has been the organisation’s home for the past 15 years.

The move, which took place over the weekend of 19-20 November, 2016, was project managed by Steve Almandras of Britannia Sandersteads. Britannia’s staff helped by dismantling desks and partitioning as well as making sure treasured pictures of loved ones weren’t left behind. McDonalds Happy Meals fuelled everyone’s efforts on the final Friday before departure and all was kept to schedule.

On day-one the team found time to celebrate with a special Britannia cake and pizza in the boardroom, all washed down with something fizzy.

Britannia was formed in 1981 as a co-operative and is now the largest removals business of its kind in the UK with 41 members nationwide.
