About Us

At Purdie Worldwide our core values are the fundamental beliefs and principles that shape our behaviour and actions. As a Dependable Family Business we treat all our employees and customers as if they were a member of the family themselves as we recognise that no two moves are ever the same and each deserves individual care and attention.


By offering Professional Services on time, every time, we ensure our High Standards are met in accordance with the British Association of Removers. Our team at Purdie Worldwide is comprised of 90% Local Employees, who are trusted and respected in the local community, in turn reducing any late starts due to everyone living within a 5-mile radius of Purdie HQ.

From time to time we do encounter a few difficult situations such as a sofa too big for a door, however, using our years of experience and utilising our core value of Embrace, Adapt & Success our staff are trained to accept any change in the circumstances of a job, adapt to suit the new specification and ultimately succeed in ensuring the job continues smoothly and to a high standard.


Lastly, but most importantly, the core value that has been with us from the very beginning – Handle with Care…Anywhere!


If you have moved to a new house or office in the past, you will know just how stressful the process can be. At Purdie Worldwide Removals and Storage, we can remove a great deal of this stress for you.

The services we provide, from a simple sofa move, all the way through to international relocations. Are specifically designed to take some of the stress away from you.

Not all moves require a large removal truck. With Central Scotland's largest independent fleet of removal trucks, we have the vehicles to suit loads of every shape and size. From pianos moves to office relocations, our removal services go much further than just a man with a van.

If you are look for moving quotes, from or to Edinburgh, or the rest of Central Scotland please don’t hesitate to contact us.


At Purdie Worldwide Removals and Storage, every customer is important to us regardless of load or storage volume. We promise to be with you every step of the way and guide you through the removal process.

    Great team of lads (the 3 Ds Darren Derick and Davey I think) who took away the stress of moving on the day with a professional and supporting manner all done with a sense of humour and a smile on their face. Great team great service great job.

  • A Murray 1 year ago

    Great experience using purdies. Staff came at the agreed time, the boys were professional, smartly presented, careful with our things and paid great attention to detail and safety and security of our things. The job was completely efficiently, with kindness and no complaints. If im ever mad enough to move again purdies are my first choice.

  • Superb services from Purdie Worldwide for the move managedr last October from Scotland to Surrey, my husband and I are so grateful for everything for such outstanding professional people everywhere, working at high standards. We dealt with honest and trusted people, from arranging the estimate pd work, to the exceptional removal work first in Scotland to pack everything to the efficient delivery of more than 80 boxes AND one vertical piano without any minimum sign of damage.

    Goods sent from Scotland to Australia. Kept informed through the process. Cannot fault the honesty, integrity, and professionalism of this company. Good on them Easy to recommend

  • Doug Reid 1 year ago

    I can't recommend Purdie Worldwide mover enough. From the initial call, subsequent communications to the actual removal. They were fantastic. We had two men who turned up on the day of our move. They packed up their vans promptly, gave me their number and said to meet them at the new property at the pre arranged time. The move into the new place was fantastic. Each item brought in, was placed in their respective room. Every item treated with care. A brilliant job done.

  • Reece Smart 1 year ago

    Thank you for the help with my removal. Very friendly and highly responsive company care and made my move less stressful. Would highly recommened to anyone. I was kept in the loop the whole of the process. Removal men and office staff very helpful and approchable and help with all of your needs. Thanks again.

  • Laura Wood 1 year ago

    Had a removal with purdie this week and I couldn't be happier. From the phone consultation to the actual moving day I was kept in the loop. Goods removed no issues, staff were professional, polite and went the extra mile for my moving day taking the stress out of the day for me and my family. Thank you all would definitely use again.

  • Thank you for helping us with our removal. We were so stressed with the move and you made it easier for us. The office staff right through to the removal team were amazing, couldn’t have done enough to help. Highly recommend!

  • carrie grant 1 year ago

    Very reliable company, handled all my items with care and made my move less stressful. Would highly recommend this company if you need removals. The office staff were also very helpful at sorting any queries I had.

  • Lynlay Clark 1 year ago

    The worst experience I’ve ever had with a company. Avoid at all costs if you actually value your possessions. A large portion of our expensive furniture is damaged through carelessness & is less than a year old. When trying to claim it through the insurance company set by Purdies they try to scam you by offering next to nothing for your items, but will be quick to offer a higher amount with a ‘salvage’ option on the table. Why are we bargaining over MY furniture that YOU damaged? Beyond furious - read the 1 star reviews on here they are completely accurate. If I could rate 0 stars I would.

  • Paul M 1 year ago

    Used by house developer through no choice of my own. Caused £2800 worth of damage and offered £700 cash as compensation, Used expensive cushions to pack vases into boxes. Packed damp towels with other perishables. Piled rugged wooden bed support slats on a £1600 arm chair. Claims company used by Purdie will value your items at “second hand value” which is as low as 15% of the purchased cost on some items. Sales tactics negotiating and bargaining over the cost of MY furniture. DO NOT USE. Disgusting.

  • Moira Stewart 2 years ago

    My removers were efficient, courteous, and removed all my belongings in a speedy but careful manner,and at the other end placed my furniture where it should go perfectly, I could not fault their work. Also may I say from first contacting purdies to do my removal the reception and office staff were great guiding me through preparing the contract so that all my household goods and furniture was known to the removers, and were able to change removal date at short notice. Will use purdies again as I have in the past. My first choice for any house removal.

  • ash sheikh 2 years ago

    I used Purdie for work & will not use the company again. Two items were left behind at Auchterarder which i had to retrieve and deliver myself. At the delivery site in Aberdeen, the items were dumped when they were supposed to be laid out as per what was lifted. One of the painting were also damaged. I do not recommend using them.

  • Bethan Evans 2 years ago

    Craig and his team were very friendly, helpful and efficient making moving from one house to another in a day stress free. Obtaining the quote via a video call was easy and the office staff were helpful when collecting packing materials. I would highly recommend their service.

  • Fiona Hendry 2 years ago

    We found Purdies excellent from the outset. In particular the men who did the removal were absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. They also kept my husband in check when he was doing too much. We would have no hesitation in using purdies again or recommending them to others.

  • Jim 2 years ago

    This company are simply superb. I moved from Somerset to Falkirk and their support throughout the whole process was totally focussed on what I needed. If only the legal profession were the same!!

  • sin_V 2 years ago

    Broke all my tvs took them out in the pouring rain causing water damage as not wrapped up not even bubble wrapped while in storage for 6 months, lost all fittments for my beds, then the guy put my suite back togther forced it down to far and blew the recliner wire and burst the metal bracket, they took beds down and lost fittments not one bed was wrapped in bubble wrap as i asked as its velvet sude beds and they are marked with being pushed along the van floor, broke my fridge freezer as it was handled to many times and they broke the element of the back of it. Its also dented where they moved it back into the van across the wooden floor of van to hard, i have cctv of them walking in pouring rain and tvs getting wet not one would work after they took them in the rain and nether wherevthe bubble wrapped somall the van elements and particuals where inside the scart ports and covered in soot he tv repair man wrote a receipt for water damage, been called a liar. The bed fittments are for handmade beds that cant just be put back togther and the wooden pannel in middle was halfed in too while it sat in the rain aswell. Tvs i have all videos of blue screens and not turning on, my suite is hanging to one side and metal broke all pictures been sent but there not good enouh, no tvs since xmas kids not played there computrs, beds given from an authority to sleep on and a suite from an authority to sit on, kids left there home due to flooding and then came back to more damage after no care was given to our stuff in stourage where it was moved 2 x and left in the rain, my goods are useless and they will not admit liability, after all cctv and photo eveidence and the guy admots he put the suite back togther i cant dont even no how it came apart as they done it. An independent reviewer to come when noone can come to the house due to my ill health. But theyve said if i dont agree i will not be eligable because i dont let come see the damage, The suite could have killed my son, and the tvs are in the repair shop still and we have to keep broken beds in a house until theybreview them wherevwould we sleep the roof, Sad times i have worked hard in my home and they are making me feel like am lying its all there on cctv and more. And a new fridge freezer from a local authority. I put my stuff in storage and called the exact same day they delivered it and told them about the damage it took them weeks to tell me about an independent review and i had to lie on broken beds which is impossible and a suite that could kill us after bad workmanship, how am i even wrong in any of this ey of this. No stars would have been given Not one tv wrapped in anything and when they bring stuff out its not even wrapped it was pouring down left wood aswell behind bin.

  • Lucy Mac 3 years ago

    I was extremely disappointed with the lack of information given at time of booking storage with Purdie Worldwide. I booked over the phone and at no point was I told that this storage facility had no lift and that larger storage units are located on the first floor. When moving out of the storage unit, I tried to organise some Porter support to help with larger items - 3 large items, a sofa and two wardrobes. The quote initially offered was fantastic however when I called back to book (within 1 hour of initial enquiry) the price had almost doubled. I was told that I had been miss-quoted. In my opinion the revised quote was excessive. I required around 20 minutes of assistance that they were unfortunately unable to offer. At 8 months pregnant, I literally cried. I felt that that they were unsupportive about the initial miss-quote. Their opening hours and access to storage are well advertised however in my opinion they are tricky to work around with a full time job. The unit itself was secure and safe. My belongings came to no harm. The accessibility of storage was a real challenge for me personally and my recommendation for others booking would be to ensure you are aware of the location of your storage unit and of the lack of lift services prior to formalising your booking.

    Having received such an amazing service from Purdies when we moved house a couple of years ago, the first port of call when our son moved out to a flat in Bathgate yesterday was straight back to Purdies. Another fantastic experience yesterday and everything went seamlessly from start to finish. The two guys worked so quickly and efficiently and made the move stressfree all round.

    Furniture removal and return

    Furniture put into storage for 5 days when it was returned could not get immediate access to property as cleaners were in. Rather than leaving furniture in van until cleaners finished our furniture was put on front path until cleaners were finished. Very unprofessional service.

    From start to finish our experience with Purdie's was nothing short of excellent. Extremely friendly and efficient staff who are complete experts in their field. We had a relatively complex move and were stressed ourselves but Purdie's sorted out all our problems and provided a very competitive and thoroughly professional job for us. Can't thank them enough and give them the highest of recommendations - small or large jobs they can handle them all.
