In 1968, Moovit Transport Services was founded by John and Christine Wicks with the strap line ‘PROVE IT WITH MOOVIT’!!
The business grew from one van and a shed for an office and in 1970 they purchased the long established W Harris of Chelmsford Ltd. In 1986/87 they became members of Britannia Movers International plc.
Land was purchased, two warehouses and an office were constructed and the business moved to its current location, Driberg Way, Braintree, Essex. The business has expanded to offer containerised warehouse storage, 24 hours self storage, self drive and shredding.
In 2018, Britannia W Harris are celebrating 50 years in the business, and on 13th October 2018, we held a surprise party for our parents. Guests included fellow movers, suppliers, friends and family. Tom had a model lorry commissioned from UVB and sign written in our original colours. We also had a lorry cake made in our Britannia Moovit colours. There were plenty of photos and memorabilia on display covering the last 50 years.
It was lovely to see so many people there to join in the celebrations.
