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!

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?

  •  Full Packing Service.
  • Storage Facilities.
  • Single/Multiple loads delivered.
  • Local/National/European.

  • Supply Packing Boxes, Tape, Bubblewrap etc etc.

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!!!

Excellent, no-nonsense website. Found this very useful as it provided a shortlist of relevant, local providers. I was able to select one from the list that was perfect for our circumstances. The provider's website was also excellent, full of useful tips and general information. It also included some testimonials. Just the job!
