Schepens History

Schepens – historical removal lorry

The Schepens family have been experts in removals for over 100 years. Originally from Belgium, we relocated to the U.K. in the 1900s as furniture makers. During the Second World War the vast majority of British people had little disposable income. This forced many family businesses to branch into other trades in order to survive.

Post Second World War, the Schepens firm quickly broadened its horizons and dedicated much of its resource base to the International and European market, catering for removals worldwide.

“Dean, Eric and Paul were magnificent, worked at a terrific pace and couldn’t do enough to help.”
