Removals price comparison site, reallymoving celebrated its twentieth birthday in November 2019, having grown from a ‘kitchen table’ start up to become a leading online resource for home movers.
Reallymoving was founded by Rob Houghton and Rosie Rogers, who still privately own the business and now employ 33 people at their UK headquarters in St Albans, Hertfordshire. The company survived the dot com crash and the 2008 recession by providing quotes for surveys, conveyancing and removals to over 2.5 million people across the UK since its launch in 2009.
To mark the occasion, staff are undertaking twenty good deeds throughout the milestone year, ranging from local tree-planting to national charity fundraising.
Founder and CEO, Rob Houghton said, “After a difficult home move with our young family two decades ago, Rosie and I realised there must be a better way to find quotes for solicitors, surveyors and removals. When we launched reallymoving, it was one of the first comparison sites in the UK and I’m so pleased that twenty years down the line we’re still thriving. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by engaging the whole company in supporting twenty causes close to our hearts.”
With activities ranging from Tough Mudders, [extreme cross-country running] to tree planting, providing coding sessions for local Scouts and collecting clothes for refugees, the staff have supported local community initiatives and raised funds for both national and local charities.
Rob added, “In the last two decades we’ve grown from a tiny tech start up to become a major player in the residential property market. I can’t wait to see what the next twenty years bring.”
