The current owners/directors/operators of Caledonian Moving & Storage and MoveCare (both defacto "trading as" names for Move Store (Glasgow) Ltd. , as well as "trading as" names for Air Road Sea Experts Limited) are attempting to salvage their already complicated gordion knot of associated companies (stretching back more than a decade) located in Glasgow. Several of these companies are involved in ongoing and long-term disputes with customers locally, in the greater UK, and abroad.

The father and son owners have operated a succession of associated limited liability removal and storage companies as Directors, de facto Directors, company Secretaries, and ex-Directors. More recently, the owners have stated their intention to cease trading as Caledonian Moving & Storage and MoveCare, and instead return to trading as SmartSpace Storage (which was definitively struck-off in 2017). It's unclear what the interrelated nature of the companies actually looks like from a legal standpoint and why the owners feel they can simply start where they left off with SmartSpace.

It appears a flurry of action has been taken because the Herald Scotland article (and possible follow-up later this week, and STV news report) has generated new interest by enforcement bodies, and a steady stream of new victims. The editor of the Herald tweeted his support by retweeting the story with a note that the Director of the companies had sent a legal letter and reported the reporter to the police in order to prevent the article from being published.

Rather than continue to pursue a small claim, I have instead chosen to help shine a light on the wantonly unfair business practices, and those of close family members who own and operate companies. The information I include below is widely and publicly available.

I have used Caledonia for my construction business for several years and they have been absolutely first class. Nothing is too much hassle for the guys and girls. So much so I used them for 3 personal moves. I can genuinely state only Supplier I’ve asked to do a personal favour. Highly recommended. More...

Moved mid March from an upper flat to 3 bed house. The guys that came to move us were brilliant; the two of them worked really hard up and down the stairs all morning loading the van and not accepting any help. Anything fragile was wrapped carefully in blankets and everything unpacked unscathed. We couldn't get the washing machine unplumbed and they even did that for us and helped get it sorted in the new house. They were really helpful putting our furniture and boxes in exactly the right rooms and everything was sorted really quickly. Top class service and would recommend wholeheartedly! More...

I am absolutely delighted with the help received from this company. From office to removal men they were all extremely helpful. I would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to use them and have already done so to a friend moving tomorrow. Thanks again and keep up the great work. More...
