About Bournes Moves in Tunbridge Wells

Bournes has been providing local removals and storage services in Kent and Sussex since 1875 and have had a home in Tunbridge Wells since 1978.  In fact, we've been operating locally since before then as Bourne family bought J.Martin and Sons (Martins) taking over the business that had been operating in London Road and Draper Street Southborough since the late 1800's. 

Today Bournes operates from its new home at North Farm, having grown the numbers of teams and vehicles available to help customers move house in the local area. We are still proud to be a family run company with a passion for providing a professional removals service and a happy moving house experience.

We're proud of the reputation we've achieved for quality of service which has led us to becoming a certified member of the British Association of Removers. 

Local Expertise

Tunbridge Wells is a beautiful town with fantastic architecture and a wide range of property shapes, sizes, ages and access. We know some properties in Tunbridge Wells and the local area can be challenging to move into and out of, whether that's being able to get a vehicle parked close to your front door, protecting buildings that have stood for hundreds of years or being able to get large furniture out of tight spaces. We have many years of experience in handling removals in Tunbridge Wells and extensive local knowledge (most of our employees live locally). This means we can proactively plan any solutions to problems or concerns regarding your individual move to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Eating and Drinking in Tunbridge Wells

In amongst all the upheaval of unpacking, a new commute or finding your way around locally you'll likely be pretty busy on your first few days in your new home. If you don't fancy cooking or just need a break you'll be spoilt for great places to eat or get a well deserved drink in Tunbridge Wells. 

There's a full list on the official Visit Tunbridge Wells website or on TripAdvisor's Tunbridge Wells Pages. Here's a few of our staff favourites:

  • Chapel Place - If you like Gin we think this is one of the best places in town with over 120 gins (and counting!). Friendly staff and customers, inside and outside seating and a homely feel make it a great place to visit for a drink to celebrate your new home. 
  • Framptons - Great for popping in for a coffee or a full meal with a locally sourced seasonal menu for breakfast, lunch or dinner based on high quality, fresh ingredients. You can even watch the chefs at work making for a great atmosphere. 
  • The Compasses - A traditional pub with friendly staff and good pub food. There's a log fire for winter and outdoor seating for summer and a nice local atmosphere to welcome you into the neighbourhood. 
  • Junahki - Great Indian food to eat in or take away with a comprehensive menu, friendly staff and usually quick service. If you eat in the restaurant the decor is authentic with original, hand crafted furnishings. 

Recycling in Tunbridge Wells

The need to dispose of waste packing materials, old furniture or used boxes are one of the unfortunate downsides of moving house, but there are ways to minimise the environmental impact by carefully recycling wherever possible. 

Some recycling will be collected from your home by Tunbridge Wells Borough council or there is a large waste recycling centre on the North Farm estate ('the tip') for any excess or items that can't go in the bin. Visit the visit the TWBC 'Bins and Recylcing' website to find out how to recycle based on what you need to dispose of. 

It's also worth considering donating items to a local charity shop. The British Heart Foundations Tunbridge Wells Furniture and Electrical shop takes a wide range of items and offer a collection service too. 

Please think green when disposing of your household rubbish :)

We have used Bournes several times before and we have always been extremely pleased. As usual, Bournes did us proud! The guys from the Tunbridge Wells depot were absolutely fantastic. They worked SO hard all day - they were extremely professional, cheerful, polite and very very helpful. A big thank you to them both!

The team I had moving my belongings into Storage were great, as were the team that did the multiple pick ups and drop offs onto the final destination. Very helpful men, thank you! We had Bournes to move us the last time we moved about 18 years ago, they were great then too!

We chose Bournes because they had lots of personal recommendations and with membership of several trade bodies, gave me assurance that they were more than a man in a van. A big thank you for squeezing in my move just before Christmas and doing so relatively painlessly. Well done to Pete for his packing and to him and the team for no damage at either address and for no breakages!

Thanks for the opportunity to feedback on our move. Very stressful time having to move at short notice and at Christmas. Your team were brilliant! I didn't realise that level of professionalism still existed! There was nothing that the three Bournes men would not, or could not do. The experience really change the stressful atmosphere in our house. The poor service we were suffering with our insurers was completely forgotten because of the superb service supplied by your lads. Please pass on our thanks and best wishes to the lads, and thanks to Bounes too. We'll be in touch when we need to move back!! (From Which? Trusted Traders - read more)
