Feature Locations: Selby Removals

Written by on February 4, 2017


Our Feature Location this week is a town in North Yorkshire that is written into history and still expanding and thriving the modern day. Seen as a vital transport hub linking together, North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire, Selby is one of the key areas in which we serve.

Moving to Selby

Selby’s importance has developed through history. Known through the ages for ship building due to its position on the River Ouse, it then grew to become a leading coal mining area of the UK. Despite these industries declining, the infrastructure is still visible today and Selby is now seen as a commuter town due to its brilliant bus and rail links to surrounding cities such as York, Leeds and Wakefield.

This has seen a growth in local amenities including new shopping centres and retail parks.

Leisure & Attractions if Moving to Selby

The main attraction in Selby is the impressive Selby Abbey. It is one of few surviving abbey churches of its kind from the medieval period and its exterior and interior is certainly striking. There is also a surprising link to the United States of America with the “Washington Window”, which is still on show today, believed to be the inspiration behind the current American flag.

Selby Town Hall is also a popular attraction with music lovers with it being widely seen as one of the best live music venues in the area. It has won awards from publications such as the Yorkshire Evening Post for its popularity and often host regular performances including an annual Battle of the Bands.

Jodie and Sarah were fantastic. They managed to sort out a storage unit for me straight away and even stayed after they should have shut to help me out. I would have been absolutely stuck if they hadn’t gone the extra mile.
It’s rare these days to get that level of service. MASSIVE thank you.

The staff are friendly and helpful (Huddersfield). My belonging are very safe and secure with loads of cameras and you can't enter without a person code. The storage rooms are nice and dry so all the stuff are safe from damp and mold ect.
I would definitely recommend and the price was great.
