The North West to The Midlands & Wales

We also get backloads and return journeys from many areas in the Midlands that are returning to the North West. Our main city in the midlands that we move people from and to the North West is Birmingham. Other moves in the Midlands include Coventry , Redditch, Wolverhampton, Lichfield, Worcester, Leicester and Nottingham. grimshaws the movers also carry out house removals  from all areas in Wales going from and to the North West. Remember to enquire if you are looking for a backload from Wales to the North West. We also get North West university  students moving to universities in Wales such as Bangor and Aberystwyth and then when they have finally graduated we sometimes move them back to the North West. Call our office if you wish to discuss this. We can also provide temporary storage in the North West area if you are wanting to move back to home but have no room to store your university belongings.

Moves to Scotland

At grimshaws the movers we regularly get people booking for house removals from the North West to Scotland. We also get a lot of North West college students enquiring about moves to Aberdeen University. We move many students from the North West to many universities in Scotland but for some reason Aberdeen is more popular to our company. This gives our customers a great chance to get really good offers on house removals from many cities in Scotland back to areas in the North West. The main backloads from Scotland cities over the last few years have mainly been Aberdeen to Manchester. This is because of the amount of student moves grimshaws carry out. Other universities and Scottish cities and towns have included Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Peterhead , Montrose, Perth, Stirling, Inverness, Fort William and many more so it is always worth your enquiry to see if we have anything booked in for Scotland around the day you require your move so you can save money on your North West re location.

Moving to the peaceful Lake District

Many people require house removals to the Lake District. This is usually retired people who have lived a busy life or had a hectic career and now want to re locate in a peaceful area. Please enquire about our Lake District backloads.
