History of GB Movers

History of a Removals Company

GB Movers was established in 1969 by Greg Brown father of the present proprietor James Brown. Greg used his experience gained during a gap break prior to college with North American van lines 'Denver Colorado' when establishing his removals company. The American system of packing consists of packing literally everything into a box or barrel. This excessive use of packing material, by contempory British removals company standards, almost eliminated damages and hugely increased customer satisfaction. A modified style of US packing was put in place coupled with continental practice of using removals company trucks with padded interiors produced similar results. The introduction of these alien practices by GB Movers in the early seventies proved instrumental in the success of GB Movers.

GB Movers established itself as only a handful of English firms providing a frequent guaranteed removals service to Spain, GB Movers capitalised on this by becoming the only English removals company to have its own depot on the Costa Del Sol by purchasing a major share of an established Spanish removals company in 1985 and renaming it Marbella moving.

In the mid-eighties Spanish roads were notoriously bad and GB Movers was the first to introduce the most sophisticated UK road train at that time on the road in 1986. Boasting five axles (four on air) ABS brakes, telma retarder and a capacity of 100 cubic metres dwarfing the competition.

GB Movers was now collecting from all over England and departing every two weeks for Marbella. Those heady days have certainly eased with UK population now choosing properties in other destinations apart from Spain. Whilst Spain is currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity wherever you are moving to, GB Movers are happy to quote for any destination worldwide. You can still speak to its founder Greg Brown. We will provide you with a no nonsense approach and an all in quotation including the GB Movers price promise - "The price we quote is the price you pay", and a removal service that is second to none.
