    Why use Over's Dorking removals…

    5 Quickfire Dorking Facts

    1. A Doodle Doo
      The town’s symbol, the ‘Dorking’ was a chunky breed of cockerel bred by the Romans for its meat. While it might look small (it has shorter legs than most), it actually produces more meat per bird. Locals are so proud of their feathered friends they erected a three-metre tall statue, which is based on real life bird “Glen II”. It has the rather unfortunate local nickname of ‘the big cock”.
    2. Dorking’s Most Haunted
      The White Horse Hotel has had a number of reported sightings of the ninth Duke of Norfolk, whose ghost is apparently ‘still drunk’. In the centre of town, a decapitated rider follows a road (that no longer exists!) through a graveyard, crosses over gravestones then vanishes through a hedge. Meanwhile, Dorking Library is said to be home to the classic ‘Grey Lady’ and also a phantom butler. So, don’t say we didn’t want you!
    3. Green & Pleasant Land
      Dorking is officially beautiful! It’s surrounded on three sides by the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are views up to (or down from) Box Hill and while Pipp Brook might sound like the name of a supermodel, it’s actually a tributary of the stunning River Mole that flows from the Downs, close to Dorking High Street.
    4. Famous Dorkies
      Dorking has had a number of famous faces residing in its leafy streets, including; Daniel Defoe (author, Robinson Crusoe), James Mackie (footballer), Vaughn Williams (composer), Chris O’Connell (broadcaster) and Sir Lawrence Olivier (actor/director). Three winners of the Victoria Cross, Britain’s highest medal for bravery, have all lived in Dorking.
    5. Peter Labilliere
      A former British Army major, Peter Labilliere was a local ‘character’. After his time in the army he became an agitator and pro-America during the War of Independence. He was known to communicate with Benjamin Franklin and was even accused of bribing British troops not to fight, but never stood trial. In his latter years in Dorking, he became increasingly eccentric and after his death he was buried head-first, without any religious ceremony, in accordance with his wishes.

    Thank You Over’s

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.
