Mr Shifter

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!

Really felt at ease during the whole time of the move- from when i first made contact to the end. As this was my first move I was really not sure how it would go and kept sending multiple messages to mr shifter. They answered all my questions promptly and professionally. Towards the end I was really worried about the move and even got the movers to come to my house to make sure i have boxed everything up okay (as this was my main worry) and make sure it would fit in the van. On the day of the move it was so easy and they really handled my property with care. Thankyou for taking the stress out of my move. You all went above and beyond.

I couldn't say enough good things about Paul and his guys at Mr Shifter. In what was a very stressful and busy time they were very very good and i couldn't have asked for anything more. Communication was good, they turned up on time and did a brilliant job. Thank you for your help in making my move as easy as possible. Highly recommended

.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 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!
