Kent to Aberdeenshire - Move & Storage
reviewed 8 December 2021

I moved from kent to Aberdeenshire in October. My belongings had been stored in a container for the prior six months.

"I wanted to use the Shore Porters as I had walked past their business daily on my way to nursery school. So knew they were a long standing company as well as a reliable business. They listened to my requirements and a date was set for the removal and transportation of my belongings once I had completed and had the keys to my new home. Their men both at the pickup point and delivery point were very respectfully my goods, polite and knew what they were doing. I can recommend the Shore Porters without any hesitation"

As soon as you know you are moving, call Shore Porters and ask for a representative to call round.  We will quickly assess your requirements and establish a timescale, costs, special arrangements, etc.  We do not advise waiting until you have a moving date because it is important that you know costs at the earliest opportunity so that you can budget for your move.  Moving dates can be arranged with us later once they are confirmed. See our domestic removals or international removals pre-move survey sections for more details.

Of course, and we are delighted to help. Our free, no-obligation survey and quotation will be tailored to your individual needs and budget. For example, Shore Porters can pack everything, only breakables or nothing (providing you with boxes to pack yourself) – it’s your choice. We can also advise on specialist packing of items such as antiques, pictures and objects of sentimental value.
