Because not everyone needs a whole lorry and a team of men for their move, a couple of years ago we decided to launch our own man and van service in Bridport, covering Bridport, Dorchester, Lyme Regis, Axminster – well, transporting anything to and from Dorset from anywhere else in the UK, really. Our man and van are available for hire by the hour or the job and whether you’re moving home, or moving just one item, we always bring the same level of care and professionalism to our man and van work as we do to for every one of our larger moves. Our friendly, professional and experienced staff take great care of our customers’ items. We are very experienced in transporting bulky or fragile good including antiques, valuable artworks and pianos. Plus, unlike some local ‘man and van’ services every single move – big or small – is fully insured and covered by our BAR membership (British Association of Movers), offering you complete peace of mind that your move is being handled competently by professional movers.

Although we’re used to moving people all over the UK, we are particularly familiar with moving people into and out of Dorset. Our drivers are familiar with most of the narrow, winding lanes in towns like Lyme Regis and Dorchester that can be hard to reach or manoeuvre with a large removals lorry. Sometimes only a man and van is suitable for the job. Our men will always find the smartest route to move your goods from A to B, ensuring that – if you are moving on a budget – you won’t be paying extra for them to take your furniture the long way around!

Moving into storage

If you’re downsizing or moving into a smaller home then we can move your belongings and pack some of them straight into our secure stone-built storage facility right here, in the centre of Bridport. Your items can be stored safely  for as long as you need. If your things are going straight into storage you would not need to travel with them as we can collect them, take them away and pack them up for you in storage until you need them again. If you would like to see where your property is going to be stored beforehand, then we will happily allow you to inspect the storage facilities, by appointment.

Office moves

Our man and van service isn’t just proving popular with home owners in Dorset. It is also ideal for office and commercial moves. With the same first class, fully-insured Northover and Gilbert service you’d come to expect for people who are moving business premises as those who are moving house. Whether you’re moving across the street or across the UK. We can help you move from office to office, or simply collect and deliver large items for your business. And if you don’t have room for it all straight away, we can put it straight into our secure storage facility until you do.

Whatever you removal needs – domestic or commercial, big or small, near or far – Northover and Gilbert have got the staff, equipment and skills to help! Unlike so many websites you might click on – we are actually based in Dorset! Please call now 01308 423939 or email us and tell us what you need for your mini move and we will be happy to give you a quote.
