“The world can only be grasped by action, not by contemplation” Jacob Bronowski

Founded in 1970, Basil Fry, a broker in the City with Removals and Storage experience, spotted a gap in the market and decided to set up his own business from home.  Already considered an expert in his field through advices given to Removers in the 1950’s and 60’s, Basil built on his expertise through the creation of his own Company.

The Company is slightly different today.  Traditional values remain at the core but with cutting edge technology to enable you to place insurance cover, partnered with delegated authorities from the top Insurers that allow them to bind and provide policy documents.

Their philosophy is similar to that of Bronowski’s above. There are many insurance brokers who will place the risk for you, collect the money and leave you in abeyance.  Their approach is that of risk management, actual advice to improve your exposure and return dividends to you so that you recognise the value your broker brings – a partnership with you to drive your Company in the right direction.  This is the ethos that ensures their client base grows year on year.


Founders Mark Ratcliffe & Andy Pearson have a wealth of knowledge in the moving & storage industry. With over 60 years of experience between them they have seen many changes in the industry and are well placed to spot gaps in the market place.

For decades we've had removal services offered by both large and small operators. Self storage was unheard of 25 years ago until America brought it to Britain, giving the consumer an alternative to how their household goods could be stowed. Up to then removers dictated to customers, on the move via storage, just how and where their goods would be stowed. 10 years ago was the start of the man & van operators and only last year our market leader for over four centuries Pickfords introduced their own Pickfords Man & Van Service. We've all heard the saying..
