Zelf History

Zelf Vehicle Hire-Removals-Storage has come a long way since starting the business out of a mid-terrace house in October 2009.

The young entrepreneur had a vision for a one stop transport shop, but at the time we were 2 years into a deep recession, however with a strong identity and brand and sheer determination of the owner, Zelf has developed the business to a point where they now have over 8000 sqft of storage for their Self Storage, Mobile Storage units and their removals & storage arm of the business.

Managing Director Kevin Harris said “we started the business with one van that we hired out and did the odd removal job, but in 5 years we have grown the fleet to 15 vans and 5 employees and we now have a fleet manager in to grow the business though setting up corporate acounts.

The thing that we have noticed is that during the recession companies downsized their fleets and now that the market is becoming stronger these business have larger demand themselves and need vans and cars to transport people and items either themselves or through us, we have noticed a sharp increase in new business and have developed hopefully long-lasting bonds with existing clients”. 

Zelf hopes to continue its growth through innovation and service and is even looking to franchise the business in the future to become a national concern.
