Professional Home Removals in Edinburgh

Operating since 1854, Bishop’s Move is one of the longest-running removals and storage companies in the UK. We have had a dedicated removals branch in Edinburgh since purchasing the local company John H Lunn Limited of Edinburgh in 1936, and are also pleased to be involved with the storing and unveiling of the most successful British space rocket, the Black Arrow.

From our warehouse in Penicuik, we carry out home removals in Edinburgh as well as the surrounding areas such as Dundee, Glasgow, Stirling, Falkirk, Livingston, Dalkeith, and many more. Whether you are moving a whole house full of belongings, including antiques, or a select amount of possessions, we can create a bespoke package that will exceed all of your requirements. We can even offer a comprehensive packing service that will ensure all of your belongings are given the protection they need. 

Our friendly home removals team in Edinburgh will be able to assist with all aspects of your move and can deal with any queries or concerns you may have. 

Book Your Free House Removals Survey

If you’re interested in our Edinburgh removal services, get in touch today to arrange your free home survey. During your survey, one of our Removals Consultants will visit your home at a pre-arranged time, to assess the scale of your move. We will provide you with a breakdown of all of our services, which will allow us to tailor a moving package most suitable to your needs. Once this has been completed we will provide you with a bespoke quote which is valid for 1 month. This way, not only can you gain useful packing and moving advice from our experienced staff, but it will also allow you to factor in more accurate costs.

Declutter and Donate with Bishop's Move Edinburgh 

Moving home is the ideal opportunity to sort through your belongings and decide what you want to take to your new home and what you no longer need. We provide all of our customers with an easy-to-use “Declutter and Donate” service which allows you to streamline your possessions whilst supporting people in the area. Firstly, we will give you some donation bags during your home survey which you can fill at your leisure. Then on moving day, we simply collect these bags and deliver them straight to the charity, Chest Heart Stroke Scotland (CHSS).
