In January 2015 Britannia Bearsbys moved to our brand new office space and storage facility in Aylesford, Maidstone.
Although we have always covered the whole of Kent, we were only doing a small number of removals in Maidstone and the surrounding areas.
Now that we have moved over to a more central location in Kent, we can comfortably reach the different corners of the county in no time at all.
We are a family run removals company and we’ve been in operation since 1987 when Paul Bearsby set out with just one removals truck and a wardrobe as an office.
All these years later we’re now the largest and most accredited removals and storage company in our area.
We boast an impressive storage facility that can cater to just over 650 storage containers on site and we can move any amount of furniture to anywhere in the world.
"I chose Britannia Bearsbys as my removals on my recent relocation from Kent to Nottinghamshire. From the first home visit to delivering my belongings, after a brief spell in storage, they were nothing short of being professional, polite, understanding and sympathetic of my situation. In all honesty they went the extra mile to make my move as least stressful as it could be. Care was taken to move large pieces of furniture in awkward spaces and offering a dissembling and reassembling service was a complete God send! Thank you guys for all your hard work and for providing an outstanding service."Mrs Jill T, Maidstone
"Excellent service from both sets of our removal men (we went into store and then out again a few days later). Nothing was to much trouble. A polite and helpful team really made the moving day the easiest part of the whole process. All my wife had to do was make the tea! Would definitely recommend. Keep up the good work!"Mrs Grant P, Maidstone
"From my very first communication with Britannia Bearsbys, I was impressed by their efficiency, transparency, speed and clarity of response and professionalism. On the practical side, once the removals team arrived at my home, they were friendly, thorough, reassuring and very efficient. The whole team, both administratively and practically, have worked with me to find the best moving solution to fit my needs and I would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to others."Mrs Katherine H, Maidstone
One of our most recent removals in Maidstone was actually the Maidstone Museum. They were moving to new premises still within Maidstone and required a professional removals company to help them. Although initially this seemed like quite a daunting task. Moving a museum is no different to any other office removal. Initially we send out one of our surveyors to work out the cubic volume of furniture that needs to be moved and to look at the access to the property. This removal was slightly different to the usual moves as the client was only moving within walking distance. Instead of loading up a vehicle and unloading it the same day, we used a larger number of staff with pallet trucks and trolleys to walk the furniture and crates to the new address. Although the goods were very fragile, once they were safely packed up into boxes and crates we could carry out the move in the same way that we would do any other domestic removal.
At the end of the removal the museum were happily moved into their new premises and could begin unpacking. They resumed operation the following day and we could add the Maidstone Museum to our list of happy customers. Although this was a specialist removal, we can cater to moves of all different shapes and sizes. We use all of our own removals staff, we have an impressive fleet of removals vehicles and our own storage facility that can hold up to 650 storage containers on site.

In January 2015 we moved into our brand new storage facility in Aylesford, Maidstone just off of the M20. We can now house up to 650 storage containers on site. Although our storage is only accessible with prior notice we believe that we offer a much better service than the self-storage companies appearing on almost every street corner. We often find our weekly rates are much more cost effective and there are always staff on site to assist you should you wish to access your container for any reason.
Once the containers are filled, they are forklifted around our warehouse and are not accessed again until you require them. We can also provide a collection/delivery service should you require it. If you are interested in any kind of storage please use the information provided below to contact us. We are also more than happy should you wish to come and see our facility for yourself. Some of the slightly stranger items we have been asked to store - Vintage Cars, Brewing Vats, Caravans and Velociraptors.
Britannia Bearsbys are pleased to say that we are now also a member of the Simply Shredding franchise. We have found that when moving house a large number of our customers like to sort out and organise their confidential documents. After an increasing amount of requests for a shredding service we decided it was time to offer one. So we did.
We offer a slightly different shredding service to some of the other companies in our area. We sell 'shredding bags' which you can take away and fill up in your own time. Once they are full up and sealed with a cable tie. We can either collect them or alternatively you are more than welcome to drop them off to us at the address shown below. The documents are then confidentially shred, the paper waste is recycled and a certificate of destruction is emailed out to you. For more information please see the Simply Shredding Website or alternatively contact us with the information provided below and ask for Katey.
