- About Us
Britannia was formed in 1981 by Roy Fox & John Court to provide selected local family moving businesses with the ability to offer all the services that the larger international companies offered. Until this point those smaller provincial movers wishing to offer shipping services to their customers were usually obliged to subcontract their shipments to the London based services of their ‘competitors’ for onward bulk consolidation at generally dictated rates.
Over the years the business steadily grew and with the appointment of a full time Sales Manager Britannia expanded into the corporate moving market becoming a key supplier to the Ministry of Defence and all the main relocation companies. Membership of the group by then comprised 50 businesses including one in Australia & two in South Africa with a large number of carefully selected agents operating throughout the world.
In 2001 Britannia relocated its head offices, for corporate, commercial and international services to larger new purpose built premises at Croydon.
Today, Britannia is an internationally recognised brand and still has the largest network of depots within the UK compared to its competitors.
BMI has maintained its excellent reputation over the years based on a twin strategy of growth and customer satisfaction and continues to strive to meet customers’ needs and expectations in the dynamic and ever changing world of domestic and international moving.
