Whether you require storage for one day, a week, a month or years we can accommodate you. Our purpose built container warehouse has 24 hour gated security. The facility is fully protected against intruders and fire to the standards required for BS EN 14873.

We will arrive at your home with empty containers which will be loaded on site to prevent double handling. Every item will be added to your personal inventory, a copy of which will be sent to you from the office with your first storage invoice.

You will only ever pay for the days you use. If halfway through the month you want to empty one or all of your containers you will be credited for any storage period you no longer require.

Extensive storage before, during or after removal

BS EN 14873 – Storage of Furniture and Personal Effects

Moving house or business is stressful enough. When you have to put your effects into storage this can be particularly stressful! Whether you are moving an office or home you need to be 100% sure that your possessions will be safely stored in a dry and secure environment. 

Quality Service Standards Ltd have inspected our storage facilities and D.C. Groves are accredited Specialised Movers with the BS EN 14873 Standard for the Storage of Furniture and Personal Effects. Our company is one of only a few in Kent to hold this standard.

Easy access to containers

You can access your containers if you find there is something you need by providing us with 48 hours notice and in most cases you can access it either at the warehouse or our office whichever is the most convenient for you.

When you have found the house of your dreams, simply call and we will deliver your possessions to your new home. In the meantime you can rest easy knowing that everything is safe and sound in our secure warehouse.

Archive storage

In addition to containerised storage, D.C. Groves can offer a range of accessible archive storage based at our main office in Tenterden. We offer a free initial collection within a 15 mile radius of Tenterden.

A small but very full 18 century cottage with difficult stairs and access.

“Moving house is extremely stressful. D C Groves were exceptionally professional, 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.”

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

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!

Kent to Scotland

With very short timescale and long distance to cover (over 6000 miles), the Groves team were excellent, emptying our house in Kent, storing it for several days before delivering it all in Scotland with minimum of fuss and everything carried out as promised.   “From the start what we thought would be traumatic we were assured everything could and would… Read more “Kent to Scotland”

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

Excellent removals.

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

Nothing was too difficult

Extremely pleasant group of workers, nothing was too difficult and when I asked them to change rooms. They were very kind & did it.

Moving can be a very stressful situation but Groves helped us move with care and consideration. I would highly recommend the firm.

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


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

Prompt and professional

Turned up promptly, very polite, loaded house items with care and diligence. No mess made coming in and out of property. Waited patiently while keys being obtained then unloaded quickly and with care. Always checked before items in rooms, polite and friendly. An excellent all-round service.

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”
