Gentleman with a van

The alternative way to shift things: alt-shift.

I specialise in moving items carefully and with consideration. From an antique bookshelf to a sofa purchased on ebay to all the contents of a small house or flat. I pride myself on providing outstanding customer service to ensure that all my clients are 100% satisfied.

With many years of experience in event planning & logistics and as a performer & workshop leader I aim to bring my knowledge, skills, friendliness, approachability and people skills to every job.

My services

Furniture removal

Fast, reliable 

From a single item to a van load I can make sure you get what you want to where you want it!

Anything moved!

Careful and

I can collect and deliver ebay purchases or flat pack furniture and deliver it safely to your home. I am also happy to build flat-pack furniture for you. Do you need to move fence panels, plants, appliances or anything too big for your car?


I can be hired by the hour for a fixed rate all inclusive around Cheltenham, Gloucester and the Cotswolds. For longer trips I charge an hourly rate plus a charge per mile, all agreed in advance and with no hidden charges. I will get the job done as quickly and efficiently as I can whilst taking care of the items in transit.


I can be a driver with my van or I am happy to help you move, lift and shift - daytimes, evenings or weekends. I am also happy to sort, tidy and declutter your property. I don't offer waste disposal or tip runs (the van is too shiny!)


With lots of positive feedback and happy customers you can book me with confidence. My background in event management and tour logistics means I am good at planning and organising.

Who am I?

In normal times I am a professional circus performer, travelling all over the UK, Europe and the Middle East. Please have a look at for more information. With very little work available at the moment and with a background in event management and tour logistics (and a shiny new van!) I am perfectly placed to be your 'Gentleman with a van'.

Jem Maynard Watts


From site managing a 20,000 capacity festival to co-ordinating the technical requirements for 400 performances in 100 theatres on one night (via organising nationwide tours, moving theatre sets and more) my previous work has given me lots of experience of planning and logistics whilst visiting all corners of the country. As a performer I work as offering shows, workshops and walkabout entertainment.
