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!

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.

Brilliant service from Paul and his team. From what I've found to be a seriously stressful day they made it fairy plain sailing! Thanks ! 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!

Fantastic service, lovely guys. Really careful with packing and they were really nice when the move was a very stressful day. They just got on with it and got things sorted. They visited beforehand to estimate the job which I really liked rather than just an online form like some companies. Would use again and recommend to friends.

We were very very happy with this company from contact to completion. The move was made much less stressful by the consideration and kindness these guys showed us as our move had to be rearranged at the last minute. We were impressed by their organisation , non stop hard work and all the support they gave us when our move had to be rescheduled. We will definitely recommend this company as we believe we did receive a service over and above what we paid for so a big thank you to Paul and Greg for everything.
