Professional Office Removals, Office Relocations and Commercial Storage

We carry out some of the largest commercial and office moves in County Durham, Darlington and the North East of England, fulfilling contracts for local Government including school relocations, Health Authority restructuring moves and independent company moves.

Commercial Removals - Highly Qualified Removals Staff and Professional ServiceOur staff are trained in all aspects of this type of removal. Contact us so that our estimator can plan the removal and assess the amount of materials, vehicles and staff required.

We are authorised carriers of waste, under the Control of Pollution (Amendment) Act 1989. This allows us to carry out a wide range of operations for our clients - we can perform clearances, waste disposal, shredding/document destruction and recycling - more than just everyday removals and storage.

Office Removals - Barrows used for transportation Specialist packing - secure crates and seals

We stock our own purpose made plastic lidded crates ideal for files and similar office stationery. These crates are delivered in advance and can be supplied complete with plastic seals for total confidentiality. For delicate items such as monitors, we can supply IT crates and packaging materials to safeguard against damage. Where necessary a colour code system is used to assist our staff in making sure office furniture and crates are placed in the right position in the new premises.

Heavy Lifting - Easy Work for Ingram's

For heavier items such as four drawer filing cabinets and small safes our fleet of Mercedes Benz removal vehicles are fully equipped with heavy duty sack barrows, wheels, mechanical pallet truck and dolly wheels. Please enquire about our services regarding large safe removals.

Commercial Clearance Specialists

All items at the premises (office, warehouse, depot) can be appraised and the selected items will be sent to either:

  • appropriate sales (specialist, furniture, art, general) at auction houses throughout the region
  • un-saleable items can be redistributed to charities or to recycling centres
  • all waste will be taken for disposal

This gives our clients the power and flexibility to concentrate on their core activities without worrying about the extra items during moving premises.

In all 30,000 cu ft of furniture and effects were moved using 600 of Ingram's own lidded rent-a-crates. All necessary packing and unpacking was also carried out by Ingram's. It took a team of 14 staff and 4 wagons to carry out the move over 9 days; all carried out with care to avoid any disruption to business.

Specialist IT operatives were used to disconnect, reconnect and test all of the PC workstations and laptops during the move. The planning and move was assisted by staff from Turbine IT Ltd.

Moving the Dainty Dinah Statue on 18th December 2013

Ingram's contracted by Durham County Council to move The Dainty Dinah Statue from The Civic Centre, Chester-Le-Street to The Mall at Morrisons Super Market in Chester-le-Street. The site which Morrisons was built on is the old site of George Horner's Chocolate factory established 1911 to 1961. The Dainty Dinah brand was introduced in 1914, many ladies in Chester-le-Street at the time stated they were the original face used.

Although 1/2 tonne in weight and made from concrete / steel rods and completed with a glazed finish, the statue was still fragile enough to require a purpose made wooded crate to be specially built by Ingram's to house the statue for the duration of the move.

The Dainty Dinah Statue move - December 2013

The delicate operation took 4 of Ingram's operative staff, 3 hours using the necessary specialised equipment to then move the valuable statue from its present home to its new permanent home.

Richard Hill and Julie Plummer from Durham County Council who coordinated the move were highly delighted with the service given.

Jonathan Ruffer - Philanthropist and founder of Kynren - endorses Ingram's with a personally hand written letter from his home in London...

My Dear Malcolm,

I have just heard from the TAP team that their move has gone smoothly and that the lions share of the credit must go to you and the splendid team that you have built up.

We, of course, know at first hand how efficient and friendly a service you provide, but , on hearing that it had happened again , I wanted to write a heartfelt ‘thank you’ for your care for us, and for keeping the name of Bishop Auckland at the forefront for family service of the highest quality.

Customer Comments

Mark Thornhill - Project Manager/Estates Manager - Bannatyne Group (August 2012)
Ingram's constantly put me totally at ease with the logistical challenges moving from our old head office building to our new corporate space in Darlington. The planning and quality of staff were excellent and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. Nothing was too much trouble.

Kate Wragg - Durham County Council (28th November 2013)
From my work remit within the Office Accommodaton Team at Durham County council I have worked with Ingram's Removals over the past three years. Ingram's have assisted us with many moves in relation to relocation of teams across the County and I have always found them to be a professional and customer focussed organisation. Ingram's has excellent communication links with Services and has the ability to cope with a range of diverse service requirements.

Richard Hill - (Facilities) Durham County Council (18th December 2013)
I can confirm the Dainty Dinah (Statue) was sucessfully relocated to the Morrison's Mall in Cheaster-Le-Street at approximately 12.15pm today. Can I just add my thanks to Malcolm's team for their role in completing this. They were very professional and provided great assistance to get the job done, they worked hard and went the extra mile to get this sorted.

Jason Bennett - Filtronic Broadband (December 2013)
Over the 19th, 20th and 23rd December 2013 Ingram's moved our Laboratory and Offices from Newton Aycliffe Business Park to Netpark, Sedgefield. The service from Ingram's teams on the 3 days that we had them was excellent. I would have no hesitation in the future to use you again or recommend your service to others.

Duncan Bannatyne OBE D.Sc DBA (May 2014)
I would highly recommend Ingram's Removals, I have used them on a domestic and commercial basis and they offer the best service by far. Malcolm and his staff are very professional, helpful, courteous and extremely hard working. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Malcolm and his staff for the exceptional service they provided on my latest move.

Corrinne Greener - HR Manager - Auckland Castle Trust (May 2017)
Ingrams Removers and Storers were contracted to assist with Auckland Castle Trust’s move into temporary headquarters at Vinovium House, Bishop Auckland. The company was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. We had two of their team on site during the move itself and simply could not have done it without them. I would not hesitate in recommending Ingrams or using the company again should similar services be required in future.

Lisa March - Ibex Innovations (February 2018)
We were moving offices and wanted as little disruption as possible. Ingram's made sure everything went like clockwork. The removal boxes and crates arrived a week before the move giving us ample time to organise the packing. If we needed extra nothing was too much trouble.

On the day we were dreading moving, but the staff arrived and were very friendly and were ready to help with whatever we needed! The move was across two days, because we not only had an office to move we also had our busy lab to consider. They made the move a very smooth experience, which I didn't think would have been possible.

Overall our experience with Ingrams has been a very positive one, they were very helpful, friendly and professional. Thank you!

The Auckland Project (June 2018)
Ingram's Removals carried out work for The Auckland Project removing a large amount of furniture from Castle Bar in Bishop Auckland and taking it to the Woodhouse Close Church Furniture Project.

We found Ingram's, and particularly Malcolm to be exceptionally helpful and courteous and swift to respond to any queries we had. The work was completed efficiently and with great professionalism and the level of customer service was excellent.
