Purdie Worldwide

Purdie Worldwide are a family owned and operated removals and storage company. Originally founded back in 1960, when Matt Purdie Senior began delivering furniture from the back of his coal truck, they’ve evolved into one of Scotland’s Premier Removal Companies. Based in Central Scotland, they move thousands of homes and offices every year both domestically and overseas, as well as providing private and commercial storage services at their purpose-built facility in West Lothian.

From early beginnings their motto has always been to “Handle with Care…Anywhere!” Given the notable awards won over the year, and their clear dedication to customer satisfaction, it’s clear that this motto still rings true in the third generation with the company positioned to handle all moving requirements worldwide.

Their past experience with specialist moves such as the Oor Wullie art project, and the Elephant Family throughout the streets of Edinburgh, will stand them in good stead when dealing with their latest moving challenge! All of their skills and moving knowledge will be put to the test as they work in close partnership with the RZSS team in the careful placement and collection of our precious giraffes. A tall order indeed!

“Well we’ve never moved a giraffe before but delighted to be a part of the project, there is always some weird and wonderful requests and our bespoke moving solutions can deal with them all.”
