It's been an incredibly busy few months that has seen us form some great new partnerships, continue our charitable work and even clock up a few milestones along the way! 

Literary Donation on the Move to Local Hospice

We are incredibly pleased to have been able
to donate over 5,000 books to 
Wolverhampton based Compton Hospice. 
After collecting the unwanted books over several months from clearances from house moves the books are to be put to good use being sold across Compton Hospice charity shops in the local area to help  raise funds for the organisation.  
After recent break-ins at the Compton Hospice shops, we have increased our efforts to try and help the charity raise much needed funding.

Credit Agricole Britline is the French speaking distance banking branch of Credit Agricole, France's biggest bank, and provides a telephone, internet banking, insurance and mortgage service for clients fiscally resident in France, the UK and Ireland. They are the only bank to o ffer the full 'One Stop Solution' for banking, insurance, savings, currency and mortgage in France; all at a distance and even before customers have actually moved to France. 
Widely recognised as the market leader for moving to and from France, Burke Bros have over 35 years' experience of providing thousands of door to door moves all over France. We are delighted to be working with Britline as a fellow provider, with a wealth of experience, of essential services to those moving to France.

150 Years Service to the Generation Game 

As we pass our 35 years of trading, some key members of our workforce have collectively accumulated more than 150 years of experience.  

Both Directors have headed the business for the past 35 years enabling it to grow into one of the most reputable, award winning international and UK domestic and corporate moving organisations in the UK.

During the years of operation, the company has employed a number of staff who have served decades with us.  None more so than their Operations Controller, Dave Colley who started his career at Burke Bros Moving Group 27 years ago as an apprentice. 
Sales Manager, Ben Hingley joined the organisation to head up the sales team for the last 25 years.  

Darren Hayward, currently our Foreman, has certainly clocked up a number of years with the company.  Starting as a porter at 19 years of age, Darren has now had 32 years of experience in the industry.  

With so many decades of experience in the industry, we now find that 65% of our work is due to repeat business and referrals and we often move generations of the same families.  We find time and again that families will use and are loyal to the company. 

A Tale of Two Cities 
This spring and summer has also really seen our aparthotel removal services programme gain momentum with aparthotels being cleared in Manchester and five floors of aparthotels have been fitted out in London.
A large part of our warehouse in Wolverhampton has also been dedicated to storing the aparthotel contents. 

We've exhibited at the French Property Shows at Newbury and Wetherby and taken the opportunity to speak to a number of people who are putting firm plans into place to move to France.  We look forward to catching up with everyone at the French Property Show in Olympia, during 16-17 September 2017.
