About Us

David Gilkes and Sons

Established in 1983 as a small house removals company, David Gilkes and Sons are still a family owned and operated business offering the very best in customer service over a quarter of a century later.

Over that time we have grown to provide over 800 moves per year for both domestic homeowners and commercial business relocating offices, and the services also expanded; offering containerised and document storage facilities for a wide range of customers. We strongly believe in offering a very personalised and friendly service no matter whom we are working for, enjoying regular recommendations and many repeat customers over nearly 35 years in business.

We only employ hard working, friendly, courteous and professional removers who receive excellent training and often bring a great deal of previous experience helping people move house. Our team are always expected to meet the highest standards in all their work and we also meet the quality benchmarks of industry organisations including the Freight Transport Association, the British Association of Removers and the TSI, Trading Standards Institute; click here to learn more about our industry accreditations.

Local Community

Our storage services developed from the removals; many customers require short-term storage if their house move is staggered, or it can be a great way to de-clutter when trying to sell your home. We now offer a comprehensive storage solution whether it is covering a short-term move, student holidays or long term document archiving for businesses, and our experienced drivers and removers can even pick up and drop off your stored items as required

We enjoy being part of our local community, and every year we donate boxes to help Caraires and HCPT ship nearly 1000 Easter Eggs for the disabled and disadvantaged children and young people, who go to Lourdes, France to enjoy a week long, life changing pilgrimage holiday.

One of our favourite things to support is still the closest to home, as sponsors of local football teams (pictured above), In the past we have provided football tops and training jackets.
