Removal Experts You Can Trust

Ballards Removals is one of the longest established household removal companies in the East Midlands. Based at Markham Moor, just off the A1 close to Newark and Retford and ideally placed for moves in Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and beyond.

Founded in 1978 by Richard and Janette Ballard, the company is still in the family today, continuing to build on our reputation as one of the UK's most well-respected removals and logistics companies. 

Initially focused on specialist domestic and commercial removals, we now provide a comprehensive range of secure storage and logistics services, including removals, self storage, van hire and haulage. 

Our team has grown over the years and we now have a 70-strong workforce. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile, bringing high levels of professionalism and expertise to every job. Our removals teams are trained in-house in our purpose built BAR approved training centre, complete with individual training rooms including a lounge, kitchen, dining room, bedroom and hallway, and with the types of furniture and other items you would expect to find in these rooms.

As well as being a big name in the UK, we also have a strong presence in Europe, where we operate a fleet of road trains. Plus we regularly carry out removals to and from the continent. 

We're continuing to invest in our team, equipment and vehicles, helping us continue to offer an excellent service to our business and domestic customers alike.
