A number of celebrities and sportspeople have moved house this year with the help of family-owned firm, Ballards Removals.

DJ Pete Tong - 445x277The Nottinghamshire-based company has been praised by famous names including DJ Pete Tong MBE, New Zealand rugby union coach Vern Cotter, All Blacks star Lima Sopoaga, and prop for the Newcastle Falcons rugby team, Rodney Ah You, for its successful relocations.

Matthew Ballard, Group Managing Director of Ballards Removals said, “We treat every customer as an A-lister, but it’s especially exciting to be helping the likes of Pete Tong move home! The old adage of ‘celebrities - they’re just like us’ might be true, but moving such high-value and one-of-a-kind items certainly put the pressure on the team. All our staff are expertly trained, so there was no learning curve - just higher pulses and a very humbling experience all round.”

The high-profile moves come on the back of a record year for Ballards in 2021. The company has quadrupled its annual turnover since 2017, with profits reaching £8 million in the last year. Now employing 90 people, including 35 full-time drivers, the company is optimally positioned to manage relocations both domestically and internationally.
