Moving Home with James Westerman

Local and Long Distance Removals

We will arrange for our Estimator (a removals expert) to call and supply you with a written quotation free of charge.

Commercial and Office Relocation
Whether you are a small company moving across town or a larger organisation planning to relocate, Northwest Removals have the expertise and resources to plan and implement the most effective office removal to ensure continuity for your business, your staff and your organisation.

Packing Services

Our Packing Service

If Westermans are contracted to do your packing we offer a full service that includes specialist materials such as specially produced heavy duty boxes, this enables us to ensure that all delicate items such as China and Glassware arrive at your new home totally intact, giving you peace of mind. Wardrobe cases will be available on the day of the move to pack your clothes. These wardrobe cartons are designed so that any clothes that you have hanging in your wardrobes at home will not need to be packed in boxes and can be trans-shipped straight from your wardrobes.

Self Packing

Packing of delicates is not as hard as people think but should be approached with care. We can supply packing materials such as boxes, wrapping paper, bubble wrap and tape at cost. We will deliver boxes and packaging materials to your home address prior to your move.

Containerised Storage

From the moment you contact us, our courteous staff are ready to assist you with your planned move. We will arrange a home visit with our Expert Removal Estimator - this will help us to determine the size of vehicle needed and how many storage containers will be required.

If storage is required for a week, a year or longer we offer a first class facility in our fully containerised storage warehouse. Our containerised storage offers a greater degree of security and cleanliness.

From the moment our vehicle and staff arrive at your property, you can be assured of our professional, top quality service. Our professional, uniformed staff are fully trained and experienced in providing you with a hassle-free move. Every piece of furniture is wrapped individually to prevent unnecessary damage and carefully packed into the container or onto the removal van.

Large wooden containers are transported to your home on a removal vehicle that has been specially designed to carry them. Your furniture and effects will be itemised on a inventory (copy to customer) and loaded directly into the containers on the vehicle. Before the van/wagon moves away from your home or business address the containers are sealed.

Once your funiture and effects are loaded in the containers the removal van/wagon returns to our storage depot where the containers are lifted from the van/wagon by a stacker vehicle, containers are recorded and stacked remaining totally sealed until required.

I am just writing to thank your Company for the excellent job in moving our furniture.
You made our move as trouble-free as possible and the two lads, Luke and Roy worked very hard
and took great care when handling furniture and boxes.
We will certainly recommend your Company to any of our friend s and family that a have house move coming up.
Thank you again.

Mrs Lister, Ripon

I am writing to thank you and your colleagues for your very supportive and helpful service over the period of packing-up and moving.
We could have wished for no more: both in the period of preparation with your helpful advice and prompt delivery of boxes,
and on the moving days, in your hard work, care and sensibility.
It really did feel as if nothing was too much trouble!
We will certainly recommend you to others.

Rev'd James Read, Oldham.

I am writing to thank you and your Company for the professional way you carried out the removal
of equipment between the four East Lancashire Hospital sites.
I wish to commend your Company for the safe handling of all the equipment,
some being very delicate and a considerable amount being extremely heavy.
You certainly met our high standards of a tight time scale during the two months you provided service to the Trust.
May I wish you every success and look forward to doing business in the future.

H Blanch, East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust

We recently used this Company having found them on "Which Local."
"They did a small removal of some items from Burnley to York in one day,
then did our main move from Burnley to South Shropshire in two days.
James came quickly to give us a quote which we found to be reasonable, and when we accepted it,
he delivered the boxes the same day.
They turned up on time for the moves and were considerate, friendly and helpful, taking care and were expert and skilled.
Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were have to reposition our items as we wanted.
We hope never to move again, but would not hestitate to use this firm again if we ever did.

Andrew from Burnley

I needed to move house quickly and after using "Which Local" I contacted Mr Westerman.
He came that same day and gave me a fair estimate.
Unexpectedly, I had to change dates and as difficult as this was for him, he managed to find a time slot.
He and a colleague arrived promptly on the day of the move and everything proceeded speedily and efficiently.
Additionally he organised storage for the items I could not take and collected another large item from a neighbour at a later date.
All of this was done at a reasonable cost and in a spirit of co-operation, care and friendliness.
I would take pleasure in recommending him to anyone moving home.

Rene White

James and his employees moved our furniture in January 2008.
They were very efficient, caring and mindful of carpets and doorways, fast, competent and very good value for money.
I would not use anyone else!


We moved from Ramsbottom to Edgworth and the move went very smoothly.
James was very efficient at the quoting stage, which was competitive, and for the removal itself.
Nothing seemed to be a problem and I would say that the work ethic of James and his team was second to none.

Richard Buckley

Amazing from start to finish!
James was more than helpful throughout the whole process giving good advice and guidance on the whole moving experience.
His knowledge and expertise was invaluable.
James kept us up to date with this availability to move us and even provides a service to purchase boxes.
On the day, James and his team arrived on time and did not stop until we were safely moved into our new home!
They handled and cared for our belongings like they were their own!
They assembled our wardrobes and took the time to make sure all our furniture was placed where we wanted it.
I honestly can not recommend James and his team enough they are fantastic! .....
