“Aussie” has been trading in London for over twelve years and is now London’s No 1 Man and Van, Removals and Storage business. Since our inception we have grown very quickly following the simple principle of delivering a great service to our customers all of the time. This keeps our phone ringing and trucks and men busy 7 days a week. We are even open on Sundays!
The original business started by Brian Burgess in 2001 was a single van offering a man and van delivery service. Burgess initially performed all the jobs himself delivering great quality and reliability whilst remaining good value for money. Demand grew quickly and Burgess started to recruit new people to his team, many of which were and are his fellow antipodeans. The “No Worries” and “Can Do” attitude was an immediate hit with many Londoners who were happy to pay the right of money for a good days’ honest hard work.
The business grew quickly and many loyal customers started asking Aussie if they could provide other services where they were struggling to find good suppliers. Aussie Removals was soon launched and was followed by Aussie Storage and Shipping.
Many successful years followed, but sadly after a particularly spectacular period of growth in 2011 the business became overstretched operationally and financially. Burgess turned to Anthony Ward Thomas the owner of the highly reputable business of the same name for support. During 2012 the ship was righted with new money being invested in a fleet of new vehicles acquired which you will have seen in the London area. Ward Thomas also brought along its operational expertise and knowhow and has introduced the highest standard of working practices in the removals industry.
The business is very much on an upward path again and has just opened new depots in Bath and Bristol with plans to open elsewhere in the UK soon.
