Allen And Young Removals

Moving made simple.

About Us

Choosing the right removal service is very important. Looking around at the contents of your home which represent your life’s work, and you will realise that you’ll have to entrust all this to a company you probably don’t know. As this company will be responsible for everything you have ever worked for, make sure you take a few minutes to make an informed choice.


Allen & Young of London provide a full range of packing services to suit your individual requirements. You may decide to pack your belongings yourself, have us pack some items for you, or even have your whole house packed up by our friendly team of professionals whilst you go out for lunch!


We will cater for what ever type or combinations of packing you require. You may only want us to pack your delicate or valuable items such as fine art or porcelain. Some customers prefer to pack their fragile or sentimental possessions themselves and leave us to take care the bulky things.


We can even offer an un-packing service, once you reach your destination. Let us know if you have antiques or fragile items to pack so we can bring special materials if necessary. We use only high quality packing materials and wherever possible we can collect your unwanted packaging after your removal so it can be reused or recycled.


We will normally start packing your possessions at least one day prior to your moving day but if time is tight we can sometimes pack and move over a single day. We have even packed some items and stored them a few days prior to the move to make the moving day and especially moving in to your new property more manageable.


If you prefer to sort your own packing, we are more than happy to advise and support on the best way to go about it! Packaging can be purchased at a discount via our Boxes & Tape page. As we do not at present offer an international shipping service preferring instead to focus on European door to door we do not currently undertake any export packing services.


If you have any questions about our packing services or would like one of our surveyors to visit you do discuss the various options available to you, please call us to make an appointment.

    Adding another new great review for Allen & Young! (New review 2023) This is the third time we engaged Allen & Young! We moved from a 4 bedroom house to another 4 bedroom house. This time we have them pack everything up as well as unbox all the contents. They also removed the packing materials. Kelvin and his crew are very professional, experienced and polite. They made the entire process fuss free and took our stress away. Kelvin clearly communicated their ETAs, amount of time needed and requirements ahead of time. The crew arrived on time on each occasion and finished the job early! We'd recommend them anytime! (previous review 2019) We used Allen and Young recently to move into a medium rise flat. Kelvin and his crew arrived on time and were very efficient. They gave a fairly accurate initial estimate before the move and the job was finished within the time frame. They took great care of our belongings and were careful not to scratch the new place. Everything was handled professionally. Highly recommended!

    I used Allen and Young to pack up and move from my flat in August 2022. They packed everything extremely carefully, and were good humoured throughout the process. They arranged storage, and six months later - February 2023 - they moved my belongings from storage into my new flat. Kelvin and the team were professional, knowledgable and great to work with, and the price was very fair. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them!

    Kelvin & Team helped us move Offices and I can't recommend them enough. The whole Team was a pleasure to work with and made moving Office stress-free and seamless!

  • Brilliant service from Kelvin and his team. We've used them twice and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

  • Kelvin and the team at Allen & Young were fantastic! Professional, friendly, efficient! Moving can be a traumatic experience but they made the whole process effortless and seamless. Highly recommended! Thank you again from Debora & Irvin.

    What an amazing experience! Moving is such a hassle and a stressful time. Found Allen and Young on an internet search and used the reviews (came highly recommended) in deciding to contact them for my mums move. Did not disappoint! Made the process so much easier taking into consideration that I was organising this from Kent and my mother lives in North London. Excellent communications, timely, helpful in all aspects and job completed with no issues exactly as required. Lovely friendly people came to do the removals! Highly recommend!!!

  • We used Allen and Young for a move from London to Peterborough. I can’t recommend them highly enough. They estimated that we’d need two Luton vans from looking at some videos I sent over and they were spot on. We did our own packing but requested a king size bed be dismantled and put back together again. When we got to the new property they’d already put it back together before I arrived. It was a stressful day but the guys were really calm and good humoured. The removal was stress free. Definitely use them.

    My wife and i have used Kelvin 4 times now over a few years, testament to his reliability and professional standards. No hesitation in recommending his services.

    Great removal company. Friendly, professional, and good humoured, the move was completed efficiently.

    Kelvin and his team moved me into the Barbican this week. They were great. They are polite, professional and are experts at dealing with the complexities of moving into a place like the Barbican where getting the furniture into the flat is not straightforward. I would recommend them.

  • LinaS-26 2 years ago

    Excellent service

    Allen & Young are absolutely fantastic. Kelvin and his team helped me with a stressful, complicated move and made it as easy as possible. Everything was expertly packed and done with great care. I will be using them again for my next move.

  • We have used Allen and Young twice to move our offices and both times we have not been disappointed. If I was to get someone again, it would have to be them. They are patient, cooperative and very efficient! I hardly write reviews but these guys do deserve one!

  • Laura Nelson 2 years ago

    Kelvin and his team were the absolute dream! Everything from the initial phone conversation through to being set-up in our new home was simple, seamless and completely stress-free. The level of organisation was second to none and we felt confident that our belongings were being handled with care and respect. The team were exceptionally accommodating and friendly and kept spirits high throughout what is usually a stressful day. I would 100% recommend Allen & Young Removals to anyone looking for a stress-free, efficient and brilliant team for their house move! TRULY A 5 STAR SERVICE! *****

    I used Kelvin and his team to pack and move out of my flat into storage and they were brilliant. It was during the stamp duty saving madness and Kelvin organised everything with only 3 days notice and his team were great. He even drove across London to meet me to drop off my storage locker key which was really kind. Would definitely recommend!

  • Ellen Truman 2 years ago

    10/10 would recommend they have helped us multiple times at very short notice and have completed every task we needed efficiently and effectively.

  • Steven M 2 years ago

    Absolutely fantastic service moving us from North London to Norfolk. Kelvin and team went above and beyond what could be reasonable expected and took great care and consideration in moving our furniture in to our old property with low ceilings and narrow corridors. They took the stress out of the whole process and were an absolute joy to deal with. This is the 3rd time we have used them and we would not hesitate to continue recommending them!

    I could not recommend Kelvin and his team highly enough. Kelvin surveyed my flat remotely and estimated the time required to pack and move everything perfectly, despite my thinking he would need a bigger team and more time. The team on the day, lead by Kelvin, were great (Paul, Ricky and Andy). All four had a can do attitude, sound work ethic, very polite and highly amusing to boot. They actually made moving and packing enjoyable, great value overall as well. Highly recommend, will use again for any future moves. I wish the team every success.

    Absolutely fantastic service.

    Kelvin Young and his employees were very courteous to us, and our furniture.
    Every item removed from my old home was done so with great care - once the item is in the truck, another member of staff makes sure it is properly wrapped to prevent damage/scratches and is safely secured for the journey.
    My desk which was previously damaged from an incident unrelated to Allen & Young was even fixed by one of their staff (Sam), free of charge.
    I cannot recommend this removals company enough, you will not be disappointed.

    Outstanding, professional and friendly service from Allen & Young

    I contacted Allen & Young as they'd been recommended to me and a friend had used their service.
    I was letting my property and needed to move and store some larger and more valuable items of furniture.
    Kelvin came round for a chat and was an absolute pleasure to deal with from the start - I liked him instantly.
    I had doubts about how to get some of my larger pieces out of my (sometimes narrow) Victorian property but he knew exactly what to do.
    He and his team arrived the next day as arranged and all my furniture and goods were neatly bubble wrapped and boxed.
    I normally find the moving process quite stressful but the whole process was friendly , carefully done and efficient and put me at ease.
    I would have no hesitation in recommending Allen & Young for all flat/house moving and other removal work whether large scale removals or small.
    Thanks again guys! :)
