History of Browns Removals and Storage
Browns Removals & Storage has been helping move homes and businesses for over a century.
James and Elizabeth Brown, pictured below, established the company in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1904, under the general trading name of James Brown & Sons. Starting out with just a horse and cart they delivered everything from furniture to coal. Brown’s quickly became known for its expertise, professionalism and community-centred approach. With the growth of the business, their transport fleet expanded and modernised and they quickly outgrew their premises on the Belmont Road. In 1936, they moved to new facilities on the Newtownards Road.
The Brown family name became to be well known, trusted and highly respected for their work serving the local community. Browns grew from strength-to-strength throughout the twentieth century. The removals side of the business continued to expand and traded under name of Browns Removals & Storage. In 2003, Keith Acheson purchased the firm and expanded the business by amalgamating with Tweedy Acheson Removals. In 2008, Browns was taken over by its current owner Fenton Archer who brought with him 25 years experience in the industry.
