Steve Frieze Removals

Serving Surrey for 50 Years

Our History

Steve Frieze Removals Wallington is a family run, removal business established in 1970 in Wallington, Surrey and incorporated in 2010. It started with a single van, advertising in local papers as ‘man with a van’. We offered a cheap and cheerful service for removals Wallington.

From this humble beginning it became obvious that one man was just not sufficient. We were undertaking a huge amount of removals business. Since then removals company has grown to the present level of 8 removal vans and 10 employees.

By the early 90′s the business had expanded and Steve recognised the need for larger premises. He purchased the current office and storage warehouse premises in Princes Way Croydon. The acquisition of the warehouse opened new areas for the business to grow.

Steve Frieze Removals Wallington is rightly proud of its reputation for quality in the home removals and storage market. It intends to maintain and build upon these firm foundations by continuing it’s policy of fair pricing and quality performance.

Working, primarily, in the Surrey/Kent catchments area our distinctive removal vans with the flag and company colours are easy to recognise. However, we service all areas of the United Kingdom and have partners in BAR to help with any international move. We will be happy to offer a free quotation from Lands End to John O’Groats and beyond.
