ABOUT GREEN MOVE
Green Move is a Glasgow removals and storage company offering environmentally focused home moves throughout Scotland and beyond.
We provide a wide range of moving services including office removals, international relocations, a packing service and secure storage solutions. Whether you're moving locally or across the country, Green Move will take care of every aspect of your move.
Our moving company operates in Glasgow, Paisley, Ayrshire, Milngavie, Newton Mearns, East Kilbride, Cumbernauld and Stirling, to name just a few, and regularly travels to Edinburgh, Perth and Aberdeen. We are unique among removal companies in that we offset our carbon emissions by planting trees in the Scottish Highlands.
After several years of working in the removals service industry, we became aware of the environmental impact of each move - both in the carbon footprint produced through diesel fuel consumption, and in the amount of requests we were receiving to take away unwanted items of furniture to landfill. With environmental issues being a subject close to our hearts, we started to think of ways a removals company might mitigate its impact on the environment.

Delivering for all
We decided to take steps to pioneer a more environmentally-responsible way forward for moving companies by joining a carbon offsetting scheme and using low emission vehicles.
In November of 2021 we acquired our first electric van, the Maxus eDeliver 3. Despite great advances in electrical vehicle manufacturing, the economics have yet to become viable for a relatively young moving company like ours when it comes to larger vans. Once this changes the Green Move team will be first in line to add to our fleet of electric vans while phasing out our diesel engines. In the meantime all our vehicles meet the Euro 6 emissions standard as set out in 2015.
with recycling targets
We support Trees for Life, a conservation charity dedicated to rewilding the Scottish Highlands. For every house move we carry out, we add to a fund that goes towards planting trees in the groves of Dundreggan. As of June 2022 our tree count sits at 250. Please visit our contact page to enquire about bookings.
For an in depth look at our enthusiasm for rewilding schemes we have published a blog on reintroducing wolves in Scotland.
MEET THE TEAM
Jackson Scott: Founding father
One of the two founding fathers of Green Move Removals, Jackson returned to Glasgow from three years abroad in 2015 and, on a whim, bought a van. He and his brother, Dougal, honed their craft as removal men over the following years before investing in a luton in order to keep up with an ever growing demand for larger home moves. Jackson has a deep interest in ecology and environmentalism and counts among his heroes such luminaries as George Monbiot and James Lovelock. A passionate advocate of rewilding, he follows with enthusiasm the growing movement and eagerly awaits the reintroduction of the eurasian lynx, grey wolf and grizzly bear.
Roddy Andrews: Manager
From the same highland provenance as his old friend, Jackson, Roddy joined Green Move in August ''19 and quickly demonstrated a natural ability both as a removalist and in customer service, qualities that soon had him pegged for a position of rank. With a background in industries too many to number, Roddy's curiosity was piqued by the environmental credentials of Green Move and he wasted no time in getting up to speed with the relevant literature. Roddy is now a pivotal player in the day-to-day running of the business and is more often found answering phone calls and replying to emails than out on the field.
Dougal Scott: (Departed) Founding father
Dougal co-founded Green Move after the success of Scott Brothers Removals and is in many ways responsible for bringing the whole thing together. In late 2020 he decided to move back to the land of his ancestors and has gone on to found a new moving company (North To South Removals) that serves not only Inverness, but, as the name suggests, everywhere from the northern most point of Scotland to the farthest reaches of the English south. Without doubt Dougal will use the lessons learnt during his time with Green Move and apply them to his new venture with commitment and vigour. We wish him all the best and look forward to future collaborations.
