Mr Shifter was formed in 2003. We chose the name from the PG Tips advert featuring two chimps carrying a piano down the stairs. Can you ever forget Irene Handel saying, "Cooee Mr Shifter" causing the father and son to drop the piano and the immortal lines that followed. "Dad did you know the piano's on my foot" to which the father replies, "You hum it son- I'll play it!"
No, we don't drop pianos but we are a father and son operation. In fact the family connection has grown because not only has my son in law joined the business but my 15 year old son helps us out as well. So you can rest assured of a hands-on personal service which is both efficient and reliable with a bit of banter thrown in for good measure!
Where are we?
We are based in York just of the A64 in Bishopthorpe. We have vehicles capable of doing both large and small moves and a team of trained uniformed workers who take the stress out of your move. We have quick access to the A1/M1/M62.
What services do we provide?
We offer a free no obligation quoting service where we get to know you and your needs and you get to know us. We can offer you all sorts of advice on moving, in fact feel free to pick our brains!! Moving is a stressful experience and we aim to make it as stress-free as possible.
Removal work is hard graft but we tend to do it with a smile! But please remember not to pack the kettle!!!

.As we expected parking would be a problem on the street so they provided some no parking cones in order to reserve a spot for the removal vehicle.
The move went smoothly. We would certainly recommend and use them again if needed.
They answered all our enquiries very promptly and were very punctual.

We had an excellent service from Paul and the team! They did a packing and move service for us that was very professional and completely stress free. I would definitely recommend them and would definitely use them again.

Mr Shifter provided an efficient service. On the day of the move, the guys who did it were brilliant. Could not have been more helpful, respectful and did a quick, excellent job.

We moved a few days ago and both Paul & Chris were great.
Contact was with Paul via email before the move and he confirmed again the day before and let us know what time they would arrive.
We moved from a flat and collected items we had in storage both were done quickly & with care.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend mr shifter!

The 2 guys who came were surprised by the amount of furniture we had but got on with the job and worked very hard but with care. They didn't even stop for a break! I would recommend them without hesitation.

Brilliant service from Paul and his team. From what I've found to be a seriously stressful day they made it fairy plain sailing!
Certainly worth paying the slight increase for dismantling beds,wardrobes etc and having put back up at new place.

We were really impressed with the service Paul provided, they worked quickly and efficiently and we knew our belongings were in safe hands. Would highly recommend Mr Shifter, they provide a 5* service at a very reasonable price.

Mr Shifter (Paul) and his team helped me move house early June '16. It was a hot day, and a big move, but they were chirpy and friendly throughout. They did a great job (including moving large furniture out of a 1st floor balcony, which was tricky). They were professional throughout, there was no damage to my belongings or property, and their fees were competitive with national competitors. I would recommend them to anyone - 5 stars!
