Our History

Our History

As a family firm we are proud of our history. We were established as a removals company in Clevedon, North Somerset at the beginning of the twentieth century and can boast that we are the oldest family run removal business in the area. We are dedicated to maintaining and developing the high level of service and standards that have been the basis of our business and reputation for the last four generations.

where it all began

Yeates was established in 1910 using horses and carts for general haulage in Clevedon and the surrounding areas. The limited company was incorporated in 1938 and has always been run by family members. It is currently headed up by James Griffin who took over from his father John in 2001.

In 2010 we celebrated our 100th year in business by raising funds for Children’s Hospice South West (our chosen charity).

In 2022 we will open a new £2.8m purpose-built removals and self storage facility in Weston-super-Mare. This will facilitate our expansion and enable us to continue to provide the first class services that have been the core of our business for many years.
