Arnold & Self was founded by Peter Arnold and Andy Self in 1986.

It was originally set up to carry out furniture deliveries for several local retailers including Allders Department Stores. In 1989 Ian Siddle (The current MD) joined the company from Allders where he worked in the transport department. The knowledge gained by delivering large furniture items and domestic appliances gave Arnold & Self the experience it needed to operate in the removals market.

Over the years the business was developed by adding furniture storage, archive storage, commercial and International Removals.

Today we operate a fleet of 8 vehicles from our 14,000 square foot warehouse on the Willow Lane Trading estate.

The current team consists of Ian (Managing Director) with Debbie and Grace running the office.

    Reviews from Our Customers

    I’ve been meaning to get round to this but the move and keeping on top of work has just steam rolled me. Just wanted to say thanks for everything, the guys were great and they did a fantastic job-should get the chance to relay just as much on checkatrade tomorrow. Once again many thanks, you don’t realize the scale of the task at hand until you see two grown men grappling with it-I’ll keep you in mind on the rare occasion I do a mortgage.

    Long established local firm, all of the staff were professional, polite, tidy, great to get along with, and nothing was too much of a problem for them. They weren’t the cheapest quote we’d had, but in our situation they were amazing and we would not hesitate in recommending them.

    A fantastic service from start to finish. Each and every person I have met from Arnold and Self have been extremely helpful. On the day of the move they were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble and they made what could of been a stressful day actually quite fun! Would definitely recommend.
    – Miss N
    Couldn’t have asked for a better team than Mark and his team from Arnold and Self Removals. From day one their approach was professional. Owing to own circumstances with builders who didn’t complete our house in time we had to make last minute changes to move schedules but Arnold and self were very accommodating of our needs and helpful. On the day they were efficient, friendly and even ended up packing some stuff we didn’t quite manage to finish. When they turned up at our new house the house looked like a building site but they still did a great job of arranging all our items carefully and order. Fantastic team!
