The independent voice of the global moving industry


UK Moving Group aims to raise standards and profitability

Dec 20, 2017

More than 20 representatives from removals companies around the UK met in Royston, Hertfordshire on 18 October to discuss the formation and development of the UK Moving Group; the latest addition to the U-Move Group founded by Mark Ratcliffe and Andy Pearson in 2016. Nicola Mason, the former chairman of The Movers Institute (TMI), has recently joined Mark and Andy to help develop the Group.

The UK Moving Group aims to create a network of professional removal companies who will enjoy benefits such as trade assistance from fellow members, reduced training fees for staff, sales enquiries and discounts on U-Move Group branded boxes and packaging materials.

All prospective members will undergo an on-site inspection - which will include observing an actual move - and will be required to demonstrate that their removal staff have the skills and experience to maintain the highest industry standards.

Andy Pearson explained that the UK Moving Group was not a trade association but a group of like-minded people who want to achieve better margins through cooperation and by delivering exceptional customer service.

Mark, Andy and Nicola will be working hard in the coming months to achieve their goal of creating a network of quality movers across the UK.
