We're an ethical, opinionated company.
Boxmove has been established since 2017 and has grown steadily year on year, completing well over 200,000 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.

Mel oversees day-to-day operations at Boxmove, with a particular specialism in HR and recruitment.
Henry oversees Logistics as well as working on any projects that Boxmove are preparing. His knowledge across the whole company means he always has an answer (but is it always right? :))
Alastair is our Logistics Manager, corralling the team together to make sure every day is green rather than red. He is also a master rock climber, sadly not a skill that's useful in our office.
Rob speaks to our client shops on a daily basis, solving issues and helping them with any questions they might have.
Marcus manages our fleet of vans across the UK to ensure our workforce have what they need to carry out jobs in a safe, secure and efficient manner
Based out of our Trafford Park office, Benn is responsible for recruiting our drivers across the UK. He might also pop up on a van from time to time :)
Ant is our travelling Training Manager. He assesses new employees, reports on current teams and works alongside our Operations teams to ensure Boxmove drivers are working to the correct standards day in day out.
Sam is part of the ever expanding Logistics team at Boxmove, ensuring our drivers are carrying out their jobs in an efficient, safe and professional manner. You'll catch her on the office phone, offering advice from sunrise to sunset. As she refused to send in a picture we were forced to find a very low resoultion one :)
Donna helps with all aspects of adminstration at Boxmove, keeping the office ticking over nicely. Picture coming soon!
Andy is the latest recruit to Logistics, helping manage the ever growing fleet of vans and drivers.
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.
