"Thank you so much for moving us. From the first time I contacted you to the very end of moving day, you have all been friendly, helpful and professional. It was so refreshing to deal with TFM because everyone was so customer orientated. Moving day was stress free and the men who moved us gave us every confidence that our belongings were in good hands and that we could just let them get on with it. Big thanks to them. I can’t rate TFM highly enough and will definitely recommend you to anyone who needs movers."

Meet Some of the Team
DirectorLike his brother Adam, Josh has never known life without removals! He has, since he could walk, learnt about all aspects of removals and storage, and started working full-time at the age of 16. He passed his HGV test when he was eighteen and his International Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) shortly after, meaning he is a qualified Transport Manager and therefore holds the operator’s licence at TFM. He became a director in 2013, and whilst a lot of his time is spent in the office or out visiting customers, carrying out estimates, he can, like his older brother Adam, regularly be found on removals driving the lorries and putting his skills and knowledge in all things removals into practice. Like his father, Josh is also short. He can also be grumpy and argumentative and is therefore regularly confused on the phone for his father, even by Tricia, but of course he says he is nothing like his dad.
Removals PorterNic started on the TFM apprenticeship scheme at the beginning of 2014 and became full-time in 2015, he is now an established and respected member of the team and has been on courses at the BAR (British Association of Removers) to learn the arts of packing, export wrapping, manual handling and moving specialist items. Thanks to this training, and Nic’s constant determination to learn, he has quickly grown into an asset in the TFM team. Nic enjoys the simple life and has surprised us all with many hidden talents (usually discovered over a pint of beer at the weekend), such as flicking and catching 16 beer mats and is renowned for his never-ending chat during long journeys in the lorries.
Removals PorterKes is the youngest member of the family to join the ranks and now works full-time at TFM. His years working at TFM during the school holidays and at weekends have really fast-forwarded his development and he is already a huge member of the team (literally and metaphorically) and a proficient porter. Kes will be taking his driving test this year, which will only further his TFM career even more. At 6’ 1” he towers over (in a gangly way) some of the other guys, but he is quiet and respectful in his manner, not that he has much choice with two older brothers to keep him in line. Kes enjoys the camaraderie and team spirit that TFM is built upon, and what better way to start out in the world of employment than learning the ropes from your family.
Tell Me More About Chelmsford
Chelmsford is the quieter, down to earth sister of Brentwood (of TOWIE fame), but while Chelmsford may not be able to compete when it comes to tanning salons, it beats Brentwood hands down for water meadows, quiet walks along the river and its beautiful flint-studded cathedral.
Very few people know that Chelmsford was once the capital of England when the seat of government temporarily moved to the city 600 years ago, but unfortunately, its reign only lasted a few days. And that’s another little-known fact – Chelmsford is actually a city, having been awarded city status as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Apart from being home to one of the best removal and storage companies in Essex having an office in Chelmsford, the area is also well-known for its fantastic schools, making it a popular area for London commuters who want to bring up their families away from the city. This, along with a retail revamp and thousands of new homes, has put Chelmsford firmly on the commuter map.
Location and Population
Chelmsford is located in the county of Essex in the East of England and to the north-east of London, around 42 miles from Parliament Square in the centre of London. Commuters can reach Liverpool Street Station in just 32 minutes. The urban part of the city has a population of around 110,000, while the wider area has a population of 168,310.
We have been completing removals in Chelmsford for the past 25 years and have seen Chelmsford expand in that time, with new settlements on the periphery of the city such as Chancellor Park, Beaulieu Park and Chelmer Village. The surrounding villages of Writtle, Boreham, Great Baddow and Broomfield have some lovely period properties and are also popular with home movers.
Property and Prices
In the city centre, there are mainly Victorian and Edwardian properties that range in size. While a detached Victorian or Edwardian house could easily top £1 million, semi-detached properties are likely to range between £650,000 and £750,000. Smaller Victorian terraces are available for £300,000-£400,000. As a guide:
- One-bedroom flats – £145,000 or £700 a month
- Two-bedroom flats – £201,000 or £900 a month
- Three-bedroom houses – £370,000 or £1,100 a month
- Four-bedroom houses – £550,000 or £1550 a month
