Nigel is the Managing Director of Specialised Movers, and for an MD he certainly isn’t shy about getting the work clothes on and getting stuck in. He can seen in either his office, boardroom, or out on your removal!
Don’t be fooled when you see him in full uniform in the yard, store or driving a removals lorry, be sure that he will not let his moving operatives do any work that he would not do himself, and he gains massive respect from all the staff for that reason.
Nigel has worked hard with his wife Carole to build up what they have today. He has over 30 years experience in the removals industry. Having started in Sheffield in the early 1980s, the first few years were spend in home moving. This quickly developed into major office and business moving services throughout Yorkshire and then nationwide. Nigel, with Carole have also created a major storage and packaging centre to support all Specialised Movers’ moving activities.
Nigel Shaw is a integral member of the Commercial Movers Group, the business moving part of the British Association of Removers. Much of this work involves improvements that can be made to the office moving industry such as teh creation of a British Standard BS 8522 for Office Moving.
He has also shown his innovative side, having designed and had manufactured a commercial moving crate (used for moving files and office items), made from recycled plastics. This has proved extremely popular with more environmentally conscious organisations (universities, colleges, councils etc) when planning their office moves
But when Nigel isn’t at work, he loves his holidays, relaxing with our mascots, his adorable dogs, Harnie and Harvey. He does like a nice pint too, he often treats his staff after work to a pint to show his appreciation to the staff because he knows how hard they work!
You’ll know who Nigel is straight away when you come into our offices, and from his warm welcome and great hospitality!
