Project Description


Richard Ballard, the founder of Ballards, had variously been a Farm Labourer, a Miner and a Merchant Seaman. Then came a complete change in career direction when Richard borrowed some money from his grandfather to purchase a van and he became a mover, and this fine example of a Ford Transit is that very van. Today, Ballards have a reputation for unwavering levels of professional sensitivity and a strong presence in Europe where the company operates a fleet of road trains. They continue to invest heavily in their team and in the latest vehicle and logistics technology to ensure that the Ballard’s Removals name remains a trusted brand for generations to come.
