About Us

Hertfordshire home removals

Houghton Move is an independent small family run business based in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire. As you have probably guessed Houghton move is our namesake and a slight play on words which is only effective if you pronounce our surname correctly ( How-ton) which is a rarity! Being bored of office life Alec decided to start the business as a man with a van and it has just grown from there. Whilst I (Jasmine), was on maternity leave after having our youngest child began helping on the admin side and have now become a fully fledged member of the team in our ever growing removals company here in Bishop’s Stortford. 

We offer fully tailored removals, packing and storage at affordable prices. Our small team means we deal personally with our customers and get to understand their exact requirements.

From Bishop’s Stortford to Barnsley or Hertford to Harlow, we go up and down the country or just around the corner. Home removals fully tailored to your requirements with excellent customer service.

First time that we have used this company. They were very easy to do business with. Good communication, well organised and very efficient. They emptied a house for us in Bishops Stortford yesterday, turned up on time worked hard loading and unloading and were very careful. The men were very professional and any requests we had were acted upon. We made a good choice.

We used Houghton Move for our recent house move and they were fantastic, arrived right on schedule on the morning of our move, packed our belonging for us and loaded the van making the day so stress free we went to our neighbours for tea. Unloaded us at the other end putting our furniture back together all for an amazing price. Would highly recommend and would use again if we move again.

We used Houghton’s to move my shielding mother. Alec and his team were professional, friendly and efficient. They completed the removal of the house with experience and knowledge during a stressful lockdown period. Highly recommended local company.

Houghton Move provided an excellent service from day 1, in courtesy and efficiency. They worked with us when the move had to be delayed due to lockdown and rescheduled as soon as possible to meet our needs. They arrived on time, communicated clearly, politely and took all necessary care for health and removal without any damage or problems before, during or after. Dismantling and reassembly of larger furniture done and no mess either. A great team, a great job and done with a delightful attitude. Many thanks, Richard T

I thought the team from Houghton did a great job on what was a large house move. They arrived promptly and worked really hard across the two days they were with us. They respected social distancing in place and were courteous and polite at all times.

They have been professional and caring during all the stages of the move. I have followed everything from abroad and they definitely have made a difficult situation much easier to handle. Would recommend 100%
