Established 1904

Pretlove’s is a family-run removals and storage company established in 1904. We have offices in Epping and Saffron Walden in Essex, Haverhill in Suffolk, and in Cambridge.

The removals firm has been in the Pretlove family for four generations. All removals staff are full-time - we do not use part-time, contract or casual staff for the moves. On average our staff have over 10 years experience working for Pretlove's or in the removal industry. They will ensure your property is treated with the expertise and care you would expect.

When we submit a quote for a service, there will be no hidden extras - what you see on the quote is what you will pay. This is just one of the reasons why a large proportion of our removals and storage business comes from recommendation. Our reputation is important. The safety and appearance of our vehicles and the integrity of our staff is also central to the operation. We aim to keep abreast of the latest removal business technology. And read all about the Pretlove's commitment to its clients.
