Charity Support

D.C. Groves & Son believes in giving back to the community and supporting charities is a long standing tradition.

The company has a partnership with three charities The Hospice in the Weald, The Removers Benevolent Association and The Tenterden Lions Club.

Customers who accept a removal quote are requested to choose a charity. That charity will then receive a donation of £2.

  • The Hospice in the Weald

Very good all round

I have used Groves over the past 3 years to store & remove my goods. From the beginning I felt they were trustworthy & reliable from the office to the drivers & good humoured with it!

Prompt and very professional

Brilliant service by very helpful young men. Took all the hassle out of moving day.

Carol, Kent 19/11/2018

Superb movers

From the very first phone call, site visit, pre-pack day before move and the move itself we received an exemplary level of service. Extremely pleasant staff and very helpful. Efficient packing and removal day went without a hitch. Highly recommend D C Groves.

Very Professional Service

I would thoroughly recommend Groves & Son – excellent staff, personal, efficient and an exceptional service.

Sally, Dorset 10/07/2017

Professional, polite, helpful, experienced

Moving house is extremely stressful. D.C. Groves & Son were exceptionally polite, helpful, experienced and made the move as painless as possible. Their willingness to adapt and problem solve on the hoof, together with tons of common sense made them, I believe, unbeatable. Such a refreshing change to find a “can do” attitude. A small but very full 18c cottage… Read more “Professional, polite, helpful, experienced”

Excellent removals.

Despite dreadful weather conditions – snow and ice, managed to undertake the work with efficiency and good humour.

Malcolm, Kent 05/03/2018

Professional & helpful advisor

Company removed furniture out of a storage unit to our new home. Arrived on time, very pleasant and efficient 2 man crew. Took care with our possessions. Also took some unwanted furniture to a local Hospice Charity Shop for us.

Second time we have used them. Very efficient and flexibly. Would highly recommend.

Brian, Kent 29/08/2018

Extremely helpful

Groves and son moved us over a period of four days. Two days were spent packing and in all respects this was done thoroughly and efficiently. The day of the removal was very well organised and they made sure we had everything for our first night in our new home. The fourth day was spent unloading the remainder of the… Read more “Extremely helpful”

Christine, Kentn 29/08/2018

Brilliant job, fantastic

Well what can I say, what a fantastic crew I have had to pack my house up in Sussex and deliver it to Somerset. I had a good laugh and joke with them. So very polite, nothing was to much for them. The office team were in touch with me to make sure I was ok, you are all fantastic… Read more “Brilliant job, fantastic”

Linda, Somerset 28/11/2016

Brilliant job

The team moved my home into storage & 2 weeks later to my new property. Would recommend. Very professional & helpful.

Anne, Kent 26/07/2018

Very friendly

Removals, storage, dismantle of furniture – then reassembled. Great, very friendly & helpful. Would recommend them to anybody.

Joan, Kent 20/08/2018

Friendly, helpful & efficient.

We have already recommended D.C. Groves & Son to friends who have also just employed them and are pleased.

Isabel, Kent 27/06/2018


I cannot fault D C Groves during our recent move from Tenterden to Devon. They were at all times efficient, helpful, careful with our possessions. Worked extremely hard, very pleasant and good timekeepers. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Leila, Devon 05/12/2017

Brilliant job, prompt & professional

A small family run company and we felt we had personal service. We moved during the first weekend in August 2018 when record temperatures were experienced, Andrew, Andy & Ben never complained & had to be persuaded to stop for drinks breaks! Other trades in the area fully recommend Groves of Tenterden as we do.

Simon, Kent 03/08/2018

Very helpful

Very good, very careful moving furniture, very helpful and pleasant. Our only disappointment was that the carpet protection was only partial and was not put in place at the start. As only one of us was moving out.  

Linda, Kent 12/09/201

Prompt and professional.

Excellent service provided, prompt and professional. Nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be recommending!

Ben, Kent 24/05/2018

A difficult job well executed

The move of a house and the heavy contents of a workshop was organised perfectly. Despite ourselves constantly having to delay our moving date they were ready when eventually we gave them just two days notice.

Duncan, Northumberland 24/05/2018

Couldn’t have asked for a better team

Couldn’t have asked for a better team. Would certainly use them again – and recommend them.

Mr A - 2016

Excellent job

I used DC Groves again because of previous good experiences and once again they came up trumps. Friendly, professional and helpful staff, excellent value.

S, East Sussex 28/06/2018

Absolutely brilliant

We used the packing service which was good value. Our furniture went into their store and delivered back to us when required. Very polite and professional staff.

Alan, East Sussex 11/06/2018

Prompt and professional

The men arrived the day before to pack and worked really hard then returned on moving day. All went very smoothly, and also on the delivery section.

Jill, Kent 18/05/2018

Amazing service

We were rather daunted by our move from the east of Kent to Northumberland, however, Jay and Richard ensured that the process was as stress-free as possible. We have moved several times during the past few years and this recent move was by far the easiest, thanks to Jay and Richard. Their customer service was exceptional.
