Talk to Lomers

who we are

Our reputation as a professional and personal removals and storage business has grown since 1979 when Founder, Gary Lomer, started the business. In 1995 a well-respected removals company, F. C. Eldridge was incorporated into Lomer’s Removals & Storage, bringing with it a variety of valuable expertise and industry resources.

From our discerning and diligent approach to quotes, spending time to get to know your specific needs to an expert removal, storage and packing service, you can be rest assured that Lomer’s Removals & Storage is dedicated to get your things where you want them, how you want them.

But Gary still never says no to a cup of tea with customers, whenever the opportunity arises.
