Home removal company – Britannia Anchor

Anchor Removals represents Britannia Movers as friendly multi-award winning family business based in Salford.

You may ask what is different about us, we are very much trying to change the face of our industry (along with the BAR our professional body), our industry is seen by many as low skilled, “easy” to do and the working terms on which the removals operatives work within very much reflect that.

Anchor Removals was established in 1992 and became a member of Britannia Movers International in 2009. Starting out as a small, family-run business, Britannia Anchor now has a fleet of six vehicles and 10 members of staff. We believe in offering a personal, first class service to all of our customers, wherever they are in Manchester.


  • We are multi award winning Salford Business Awards Employer of the Year 2023
  • Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter Mayors Employer of the Year 2023
  • Living Wage Advocate of the year 2023
  • SME supporter of the year in 2022
  • We have previously been selected as Domestic Mover of the Year and received a certificate of merit, and have been shortlisted two years in a row for the award.


Also a supporter of Action on Poverty, campaigner for the “real living hours and no zero hours contracts” – civil rights, equal rights, fair pay and working conditions for the poorest in the society.

Britannia Anchor Removals is the only “Real Living Wage Accredited Employer” for the removals industry in the UK, with no zero hours contracts, and member of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter.

We recognise our job as very much a professional, skilled and extremely difficult job (physically demanding, poor working conditions and unpredictable hours) and this is reflected in the way we pay our teams, and in recognition of this we won Salford Business Awards employer of the year in 2019 and 2023, and were runners up in 2018. We are also Greater Manchester Good Employment Employer of the Year 2023, which follows our success as SME supporter of the year in 2022. Greater Manchester metro Mayor Andy Burnham selected us and presented us with the award and we are very proud of what we are achieving. Company Owner Chris Smallwood also won the Living Wage Advocate of the Year award in 2023.

Our operative colleagues are paid the real living wage and do not work on zero hour contracts. We aspire to be a Social Enterprise, committing many of our profits back into staff training, benefits and support for our community.  This is something we are very proud of, and we hope that the public will support us in our endeavours by recognising that the better the working terms for our teams, the better the service our customers will receive.

We have also supported the local Grassroots football coach for over 10 years, who are currently coaching the Astley and Tyldesley Dragons under 13s football team.
