Wrekin Removals and Storage has been appointed as one of only seven franchises of Bishop's Move, the UK's largest family-owned removals company.

Wrekin Removals and Storage, based in Halesfield, has been running for more than a decade and owner Dave Laurie said he was delighted to come on board with a business that provided equally high levels of service.

Over the next two years, the move is expected to increase business turnover by at least 30 per cent, leading to the creation of between five and 10 new jobs. The move also allows them to take on much bigger contracts over the wider West Midlands area.

"Bishop's Move is one of the best known removals companies in the UK and is renowned for its high standards of service" he said. "Here at Wrekin Removals, we have always had that same ethos, that the customer comes first and gets the best possible service."

"As a family company we will remain true to our roots and will be continuing to trade as Wrekin Removals in association with Bishops. Anybody who has used us in the past or has a booking with us will not receive any different service but this franchise opportunity was taken to simply extend the region of our custom. By taking on the franchise we will have the opportunity to carry out work for larger contracts across a much wider area. In turn we expect this to result in an increase in custom by more than 30 per cent and therefore create between five and 10 extra positions within the company over the next two years."

"We would like to thank our loyal clients for their support over the last decade and we would like to reassure them we will not be changing our name. They will still enjoy the same personal service they have always enjoyed."

"By becoming a Bishop's Move franchise, we will be greatly increasing our presence throughout the West Midlands while keeping our commitment to excellent customer service. Likewise, with our specialist and local knowledge, we are bringing the Bishop's Move service to areas it may previously not have reached. This is an exciting new chapter for Wrekin Removals."

Bishop's Move has 13 branches and seven franchises throughout the UK and Nigel Bishop, franchise director for the company, said they were keen to appoint a new franchise which reflected its foundations and ethics and which comes as a fully accredited member of the British Association of Removers (BAR). He said: "When selecting a franchisee we always look for service levels, membership of BAR and family businesses which have a similar philosophy to those of Bishop's Move. We want them to run their businesses under their own family name in conjunction with our brand. We are therefore delighted to have welcomed Wrekin Removals to our already established network of franchises and branches."

Wrekin Removals and Storage also offers secure storage facilities at its Halesfield depot.
