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.

The Really Moving website was really helpful in cutting down on the leg work involved in the move, easily finding local companies and accurate comparative prices.
Mr Shifter were very helpful and flexible, as we were working to short timescales with a complex move. They consulted us at all stages of the move, and took care of our belongings. I would certainly recommend.

Nothing was too much trouble for Paul and his team. Helpful advice from the very beginning. He did little extras the day before the move to ensure that the main move went very smoothly. A really great and economical service. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone.

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!
