A Century of reliable home removals

In 1918, after the end of World War 1, Oscar-Peter Scott borrowed a sack barrow to deliver a wardrobe he’d sold from his market stall on the Caledonian Road. With the shortage of able young men, Oscar-Peter turned to Glad and Floss, his two capable teenage daughters to help him complete the delivery.

The wardrobe was delivered by sack barrow that day and Scott’s began offering same-day deliveries on all goods, something that was unheard of in 1918.

Later, as the business flourished, younger brother Alfie Scott joined his sisters and father, taking responsibility for handling the family’s newly acquired, but rather temperamental horse and cart. By 1920, with their new long-range delivery capability, Scott’s were famously delivering furniture across London and into North-East Essex.

Little could Great Grandfather Scott have imagined that 100 years later the business he started that day in 1918 would still be thriving.

Whilst the wheel barrow and good old horse and cart has been replaced by the modern motor vehicle, some things at Scott’s Removals have never changed…
