Our friendly team of experienced movers will plan every stage of your move and support you through the whole thing.
During the extensive pre-move survey we will discuss with you what removals services you need, and establish how many items you’re planning to move, if there are any time constraints or access restrictions, and whether you have anything that needs to go into storage. This will allow us to tailor the removal to your needs and provide you with a comprehensive plan for moving day.
Fully managed removals from Britannia Glasgow & Ayrshire
We’ll get involved as much or as little as you’d like, so if you just want us to transport your items to your new home, we will. However, if you’re very busy, we can arrange to pack your items, load them up, deliver them and then unload everything at the other end for you. We’ll even arrange for storage of anything required as well.
If you have booked a packing service, our team of packers will come to your home on the agreed day and pack up your possessions. They will bring all the materials needed to enable them to complete this in readiness for the move. Our packing service takes the pressure off of you, as our trained team will carefully wrap all of your belongings.
We can supply you with the packing materials in advance, including cartons and parcel tape, if you’d rather pack yourself, or opt for a part-packing service.

Why move to Glasgow?
Glasgow is the most populated city in Scotland and for good reason. It’s a lively hub of culture, with a rich history, exciting nightlife, vibrant arts and music scene, and plenty of protected green open spaces and parks. One of Glasgow’s slogans is “People Make Glasgow” and the city is known for its friendly and welcoming people.
Glasgow has so much to offer, with enough varied activities on offer to entertain everyone. Whether it’s visiting the Centre for Design, the Tennant’s Wellpark Brewery, having a bite to eat in one of Glasgow’s many independent eateries, or shopping from major brands in the shopping centre. Plus, Glasgow is well situated for easy access to the highlands, where there’s opportunity to hike and take in the breathtaking scenery.
Where to move in Glasgow
Glasgow has a variety of different districts that all bring different benefits to residents. Hillhead, in the West End, is very popular with young professionals, students, and also young families. While property in this area can be pricey, it has the advantage of being in the middle of Glasgow’s art and culture scene, with museums, galleries and independent shops.
Bearsden is one of the most expensive areas in Glasgow and is popular with families. There are many great quality schools here, as well as a nature reserve. Bearsden offers a slightly quieter way of life but retains easy access to the city centre via public transport.

Located on the riverside, the area has many great schools as well as green spaces and attractions such as bowling and rock climbing.
