We're an ethical, opinionated company.
Boxmove has been established since 2017 and has grown steadily year on year, completing tens of thousands of furniture collections and deliveries in that time. That’s a lot of furniture!
We specialise in collecting and delivering furniture for charities. It’s all we do. Our business is built on saving clients time and money, and increasing their sales by offering next-day service to their customers and supporters. 60-minute timeslots. Digtal Gift Aid. Online collection booking. Uniformed, friendly staff. It’s a great experience for everyone involved.

We have been a Real Living Wage employer since we started. From the very outset we achieved profit through intelligence and technology, not through exploitation. We pay a higher salary than anyone else in this industry which means we have our pick of the best people, that leads to better service and less of our time on recruitment and staff management. All our staff are full-time employees, with generous holiday allowances and a staff bonus scheme.
We don’t lease vans. We have no debt. We don’t subcontract. We expand our team slowly and deliberately. We plan to be here in 20 years, providing a good income for our team, and a great service to clients. Our partnership with clients is long-term and we’re highly engaged in the charity retail sector - we have been Charity Retail Association members from the outset.
