History of Ants Removals
Ants Removals was founded in 1985 by Max Oldfield as a company specialising in residential furniture deliveries and small removals. From his home office in East Finchley, he acquired some 5.5 tonne vehicles and the all-important certificate of Professional Competence.
As Ants grew, Max moved the company to two premises for use as offices and warehousing in Edmonton. We now have new offices, a 7000 square foot warehouse and over 700 containers. In addition to our fleet of removal vans, we recently purchased the electric vehicle shown here for central and north London removals. It can travel around 40 miles per day on one charge. There is no road tax and it benefits from free parking in Westminster and the City of London.
Instead of retiring as he intended, Max is looking to expand the storage facility. Max comments, “We intend to do home storage, in other words, we will drop the trailer at the clients’ residence, with some packing materials which we can supply if required. We will deliver the trailer to the clients to keep several days and then collect it from them”.
Ants are now well known throughout north London for the efficiency of our service, the care taken with clients’ belongings and, of course, competitive pricing. Our red removal vans can be seen all over north London – look out for the yellow electric one!
