Women Moving the Removals Industry

08 Mar 2024

Women Moving the Removals Industry

The world of removals is often traditionally seen to be a male dominated industry. However, this is simply not the case, especially here at Bishop's Move!

This International Women's Day we thought we would showcase just a few of the women at Bishop's Move whose hard work ensures that your move is a smooth and stress-free experience, whether it is a home move, for your business or an employee relocation.

Mina Patel

Mina Patel

PA to COO of Bishop's Move

Mina started working for Bishop's Move in 1993 as a receptionist, working for both the Domestic and Business Relocation divisions. Whilst our Head office was still at Stewarts Road, London, she quickly climbed the ladder to become PA to Managing Director (Nigel Bishop) until his retirement in 2014.

Mina is now PA to MD of Bishop's Move, Alistair Bingle.

With over 31 years in the removals industry, Mina has seen the company overcome many challenges and plenty of innovation within the workplace, including email and our in-house CRM. She has also seen the company respond to its environmental impact; changing to using recycled materials, using more fuel-efficient removal vans, and offering customers the chance to plant a tree following their move.

Jane Lynn

Sales & Admin, Bishop's Move Guildford

Jane has been an invaluable member of the Bishop's Move family since 2011. Based at our Guildford Branch, Jane wears many hats within the company. Primarily adept in Sales & Office Administration, she seamlessly transitions into the role of an Estimator during peak times, conducting home surveys and crafting precise quotes.

However, Jane's commitment extends beyond the confines of her office; she readily joins our removal crews, lending her expertise in packing and driving. Notably, Jane fulfills a unique role as a female crew member, catering to specific customer requests with grace and professionalism. Her dedication exemplifies the pivotal role of women in revolutionising the removals industry.

Sharon Hack - International Move Manager
Sharon Hack

International Move Manager

Sharon got her first taste of European moves when she worked for a local family firm, Northover Removals, who operated UK to Spain relocation services. 

Sharon's uses her International relocation experience to work out the very best relocation arrangements for customers moving abroad, enjoying the challenge of resolving all the issues that can arise - even those most recently caused by Brexit and the recent holdups at many of our UK shipping ports.

"I can quite honestly say on behalf of all my family that your service was fantastic. You and communication avenues were great – I don’t know how you keep so calm!... In what was a very difficult move for all of us, you and your team managed to keep everything running smoothly, despite Covid and Brexit!" K Greswold

Dani Skeggs - Corporate Relocation Manager

Dani Skeggs

Corporate Relocation Manager

Dani also started her career at Bishop's in an administrative role on a recommendation from a friend. She now heads up the Corporate Relocation team's day-to-day business, often dealing with customers going through a stressful period in their lives, whether it's have to temporarily move because of flooding or relocating for work or personal reasons.

One of the most memorable moves for Dani was the relocation of the Archbishop of Canterbury (then Bishop of Durham) to Lambeth Palace, back in January, 2013.
