Nottinghamshire-based All Moves UK Ltd has won the FSB Triumph Over Adversity Award in recognition of its growth from a one-man operation 15 years ago, to one of Nottinghamshire’s most successful moving and storage companies; despite the 2008 recession and a difficult housing market.
All Moves UK’s Director Gordon Rafferty was presented with the award during a glittering gala event held at the Nottingham Hilton in February.
Gordon, who was delighted with the award, said, “We started 15 years ago with just £6,000, me and a van. Even during the recession, we managed to grow stronger and now have a fleet of vehicles from small vans to large lorries.”
Gordon, a well-known figure in the moving industry, is also the National Councillor for the British Association of Removers and a director of the Association of Independent Movers.
