"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."

Small Box and Self-Storage
With our self-storage service, you have complete control of your unit at all times. That starts with placing your own padlock on the container once it’s fully loaded before we take it back to our site. Our yard is covered by CCTV, alarmed and security fenced throughout. It’s also well lit and monitored 24 hours a day to provide complete peace of mind that your possessions are secure.
You have unlimited access to your container during opening hours – Monday to Friday 0800-1700 and Saturday 0800-1400. If you would like some assistance transporting items to or from your storage container, we can supply a van and driver at a very competitive hourly rate. We can also provide a porter if you need help with large or heavy items.
Every one of our self storage units is situated at ground level to give you easy access to your container. There’s also direct access for a large lorry so you can drop off and pick up large items whenever you like. If required, we can also provide industry approved packing materials to make sure your possessions are safely stored.
Commercial Storage Services
Whether you sell products online, need additional room for stock, want a dry place for archiving or are moving to a new office, we have the safe space for you. You’ll find our self storage units are perfectly suited to the task of commercial storage with a system that’s as efficient as it can be.
Our business storage clients have very different needs to our domestic customers, but over the years we’ve developed a good understanding of their particular storage requirements and tailor our services to meet their needs. Remember, we’re a small, independent business too, so we’ll do everything we can to help.Get in Touch With Us Today
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 DriverColin has been with TFM for around 4 years now (a relative newbie by TFM standards!), but had done removals for other companies in the past. His steady and careful nature means he is the ideal removal man and is usually found either driving our smaller removal vehicles or packing people’s homes. Colin has been on courses to perfect his packing and wrapping technique and in 2017 will be taking his HGV test, so he can start driving the larger removal vehicles at TFM. Whilst many think his nickname of ‘Stats’ is derived through a love of numbers and statistics, it is actually down to the fact that in his younger days he had a real resemblance to Status Quo frontman Francis Rossi, in the form of a pony tail; something that is hard to believe nowadays!
Why Use Our Expert Packing Service?
TFM Removals offer a complete packing service by a trained packing crew to pack all or part of your home, the kitchen or garage, for example, ensuring all your belongings are prepared in the most professional manner. Essential items are generally left until the morning of the move, so there'll be minimal disruption to your daily routine. Cartons will be clearly marked with their contents and destination room. All packing materials are included in the estimate and your items will be fully insured.
Top Storage Tip
Try to get as long a gap as possible between the exchange of contract and completion. This will allow you to use your preferred storage company – if the gap between exchange and completion is short, you may end up having to book anyone that has a space in their diary rather than a good, professional company.
