Bishops’ Move, the UK’s largest family owned removals company, are pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted for The Expatriate Management & Mobility Awards ‘International Moving Company of the Year’ in this, our 160th year in business. The company’s award nomination will now be assessed by an independent judging panel before a Gala Dinner and Awards ceremony at The EMEA Global Mobility Summit at the Lancaster London Hotel, London on 7th November.
This is a defining year for Bishop’s Move. As it celebrates its anniversary, the company has said goodbye to members of the fifth generation of Bishop’s who have handed over the reins of the company to their replacements.
Chris Marshall, Bishop’s Move Sales & Marketing Director comments: “Being shortlisted at the Expatriate Management & Mobility Awards is recognition of the years of effort and commitment the previous generation of Bishop’s gave to the cause of this family run business. We are delighted to have been shortlisted in such a divining year for the company. We have witnessed a lot of changes throughout the past 12 months and we look forward to taking the company forward with the sixth generation at the helm.”
One of these changes is the recent investment of £1.2 million in 13 custom-built DAF vehicles. This fleet expansion is a significant step forward for the company as it builds on its already established reputation as one of the leading removal companies in the UK, carrying out moving & shipping services using its own resources within the local community.
We await to see who wins "International Moving Company of the Year" on the 7th November.
