Dorset Removals and Storage

The name Northover and Gilbert has been associated with business in Dorset for over a hundred years. Our removals business and storage facilities are housed in a traditional stone building right in the heart of Bridport. This convenient and secure location makes us a popular choice for local movers and we are happy to let potential customers inspect our storage facilities for peace of mind, before making a decision.

Why Move to Dorset?

The picturesque county of Dorset shares its borders with four other counties: Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire and Hampshire. Bridport itself is situated just one and a half miles from the beautiful Jurassic coast. The golden beaches and clear blue waters here have made this a popular destination for folk seeking a change of pace or to escape the rat-race and make a new life in the country.

Dorset is also a popular destination for holiday makers. there are many tourist attractions and interesting things to see and do which we will be describing on the blog over the coming months. Pictured at the top of this post is the ancient Durdle Door arch. A magnificent geological marvel, this rock formation and the beach where it is situated are part of the Lulworth Estate and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. The water quality at this beach has been rated by the Marine Conservation Society as excellent, making it the perfect destination for a family day out.
