About Brytons Removals,

About Brytons, the South African International Moving Company.

•••

Immigrating can be a very stressful time in a family’s life, especially because so many aspects are unfamiliar. We strive to make this overseas move as easy as possible together with our large cooperative network of international moving services. With our combined experience and skills, we will guide you through every relocation inquiry you might have. Brytons is one of the best international moving companies in South Africa, but we still cater mainly to families moving overseas, as we were originally formed to cater specifically for international household moves.

We always focus on where we can save you moving costs, that is why we offer a “share” container. Furniture shipments rarely take up the space of an entire shipping container, so we give you the option to use a portion of the container, and only pay for the space you use. We are part of the worldwide cooperative Britannia, with whom we work closely to bring you the very best international moving services.

A Brief History of Britannia Movers International PLC

•••

Britannia was formed in 1981 aiming to provide comprehensive and competitive shipping services for the small to medium sized ‘family’ removal businesses in the UK and to enable them to compete on equal terms with the larger established specialist businesses mainly centred in London and its environs. Until this point those smaller provincial movers wishing to offer shipping services to their customers were usually obliged to subcontract their shipments to the London based services of their ‘competitors’ for onward bulk consolidation at generally dictated rates.

The founders of Britannia, Roy Fox & John Court evolved the principal of a cooperative service which could operate at minimal overhead costs and they were soon joined by four other reputable businesses. As one of the founders was centrally based in Stourbridge in the West Midlands and space was comparatively cheap with modern facilities in place it was decided to base the new enterprise there. This became the main receiving centre for the new group and where operations would develop over the next 12 years.

The founders were aware that other similar groups had struggled and failed. They studied the reasons behind these failures and determined from the start that theirs would be a true cooperative avoiding the previous pitfalls and vested interests of others. The Britannia concept was to provide selected local family moving businesses with the ability to offer all the services that the larger international companies offered, at highly competitive rates with a more personal service. It was also decided that it would not be a franchise but that each member would hold an equal shareholding in the Group. The philosophy being that what benefited them benefited Britannia and vice versa.

Each member would put up the same portion of capital and the cooperative commenced with an unpaid Board and a nucleus of seven dedicated family businesses owned by individuals of integrity whose high standards were tested and proven.

Britannia Movers International was duly registered and coordination of their member’s worldwide shipments commenced. The first container was consigned to South Africa and gave rise to such complimentary comments on the standards of packing used that the Board realised they were creating a business with great potential. Rules were soon evolved covering vehicle livery, packing standards, training and services.

Over the next 12 years the business steadily grew and with the appointment of a full time Sales Manager Britannia expanded into the corporate moving market becoming a key supplier to the Ministry of Defense and all the main relocation companies. Membership of the group by then comprised 50 businesses including one in Australia & two in South Africa with a large number of carefully selected agents operating throughout the world.

In 1994 expansion dictated that the group transfer its receiving depot to London where the recruitment of a specialist Shipping Manager David Tracey led to considerable expansion and development of those services. During the later half of that decade Britannia was becoming highly successful, profits being returned to the membership by way of dividends on their shareholding and advantageous loans to expand their own services and training facilities.

A press review of the moving industry’s future published in 1986 drew an interesting comment from Pickford’s who openly stated that “Britannia was the business to watch” and during the late 1990’s the trade grew to acknowledge that, in the UK, Britannia was the market leader and with visibly more vehicles in BMI livery on the road than any of its competitors.

With ever increasing demand for its services from private, corporate and international clients the Board decided, in 1997, to upgrade its registration from a Limited company to a PLC involving stricter financial disciplines through higher audit requirements.

During this period of rapid expansion Britannia opened discussions with like groups in Europe who were developing along similar lines and linked up with the major groups in Germany, Holland, France and Italy to form the European Moving Group (E.M.G.).

BMI has maintained its excellent reputation over the years based on a twin strategy of growth and customer satisfaction and continues to strive to meet customers’ needs and expectations in the dynamic and ever-changing world of domestic and international moving.
