Our team

Everyone at House & Carriage shares the same passion for doing the simple things well, from our founders Tom and Charlie, to our team in the office, and most importantly our wonderful removals boys.

For us it’s always personal as many clients have become good friends and many friends have become good clients. We live and work in the area and know it like the back of our hand. We’ve chosen to focus on Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds because this is where our heart is.

Back in 2005, two lifelong friends decided to make removals their business.

In the office

Moving done differently starts when we pick up the phone to you. Cheryl and Dee are masters of the detail, they talk you through every step of what we do – if they could hold your hand, they probably would.
