Meet Some of the Team
DirectorHaving built up the business from scratch, Ralph has always been 100% committed to ensuring TFM is amongst the best removal companies in the South East of England. In equal measure his pig-headed stubbornness, attention to detail, vision and absolute commitment to excellent customer service has driven TFM toward his goal. Ralph still strives to deal with every customer himself, at some point in their removal process, and on the rarest of occasions he can even be spotted out on the lorries (even if it is just folding blankets and drinking coffee!). Lucky enough to have his sons working alongside him, he enjoys sharing his experience and knowledge, knowing that the next generation are there to help him continue to drive TFM forward.
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 PorterJamie has been with TFM since the mid-nineties so we think he can now be justified in describing himself as an established member of the team! Already having removals experience before joining TFM, Jamie brought his own knowledge and has since taken courses to fine tune his ability to export wrap furniture, pack china and glass and dismantle and re-assemble furniture. Like many removal men, Jamie is a unique character and has a collection and knowledge of reptiles which is second to none.
Wickford Removals Tip
Try to get as long a gap as possible between exchange of contract and completion. This will allow you to use your preferred removal company. If the gap between exchange and completion is short you may end up having to book anyone you have has a space in their diary rather than a good professional company.

A snapshot of Wickford
Ireland is an incredibly popular destination for home movers from the UK, whether you’re moving to work, to retire or simply to be closer to family and friends. But before you make the move, there are plenty of things to think about. No doubt you’ve already done your research, but here’s a quick look at some of the essential considerations to make sure all your boxes are ticked.
- Amenities – Although Wickford is a fairly small town, it does have a main high street with a good selection of shops. There’s also a swimming pool, library, open-air market and community centre all within the vicinity of the town.

- Attractions – The market town of Wickford has a rich seam of history running through it, as evidenced by the Roman mosaic floors and Saxon treasures that have been found in and around the town.

In terms of the natural attractions, the banks of the River Crouch that flows through the town and the Wickford Country Park, with its nature trails and more than 50-acres of woodland and ponds, are perfect places for a stroll.
