Who we are


We are Mr Shifter London Removals and Storage, we are part of Mr Shifter Removals and Storage that have been operating removals in the North East and Nationwide for over 35 years and have expanded ourselves to the London Market. The company was originally founded and continually operated by Director Mr Jim Gray.

Jim began his career in Redcar over 35 years ago, he started with a small transit van and a reliable man by his side. He quickly gained numerous enquiries for light removals to and from London on an almost weekly basis, which is where his passion began. As words spread, his reputation grew, he quickly found himself being asked to perform larger and larger removals. As the enquiries grew, so too did Jim's fleet, expanding into medium size removal vans, and then expanding into the 7.5-18.00 Tonne pantechnicon removals trucks. His business continued to expand and so too did his team, ensuring that all his staff continued to carry with them the reputation and high standards that had seen him grow. 

Due to our current reputation in the market, we see that 90% of our new business is coming from the high recommendations of our satisfied former customers, Our professionally trained removals team continue to work hard to maintain and constantly grow and improve this reputation.

a number of years ago, after almost three decades of experience, Mr Gray saw the opportunity to expand his business to the London Market, this was the building blocks that became Mr Shifter London. The company now owns and operates over 12 purpose built removals vehicles to handle any size and any distance removals nationwide.
