Howarth’s Removals of Todmorden was founded in 1961 by Fred Howarth, a local man who started his business delivering coal for local residents until he built up a good customer base. In due course, customers started asking him if he would move bits of furniture for them which soon expanded into helping them move home! Realising there was a need for a reliable, professional removals company in the Todmorden and Hebden Bridge area Fred decided to take the opportunity forward and expand the business.

Ken Howarth, a qualified mechanic who maintained the removal trucks, took over some years later after the death of his father and hired team members, one of them being Nck Hallsworth, a young lad who had worked for another removals company in the wider area of Calderdale.  Nick brought bags of experience, enthusiasm and composure to the team which positively rubbed off onto all of the customers which he was involved in moving, securing an even greater reputation for Howarths Removals like never before.  Customers repeatedly asked for Howarths to move them time and time again and specifically requested Nick.  As the years went by and as Ken was ageing, he stepped back to concentrate on the admin and mechanical side of the business and left Nick to take charge of all removals. Soon enough, Nick paved the way for the business to gain exceptional reviews and reputation near and far.

Ken retired fully from the business in 2011 and Nick Hallsworth became sole owner of Howarths Removals, leading the company from strength to strength year in year out ever since.

Today, Nick boasts 34 years experience in the removal industry and there aren’t many items he hasn’t lifted over the course of this period!  Many customers are truly amazed about the precision to detail he takes pride in with every single move that is carried out along with our other staff.  Our team of removal porters go through a high standard of rigorous checks to ensure that our faultless reputation is not touched and as a company, we aim and strive to be the best for service and price in the area.

You can be rest assured that by choosing us to move you to wherever that may be, you have picked the right team to relocate you using the highest standards but passing on the lowest amount of stress.
