About Us


Started by former professional rugby player Hugo Gentilli in 2012, Hot Moves are a Henley based removals business with a refreshing approach.

During his playing career in Australia, Hugo worked part-time for a removals company enjoying their flexible, friendly, can-do attitude.

Bringing that Aussie attitude back to the UK, he seized the opportunity to create a modern removals company, combining the can-do approach of the Aussies with the professional, efficient, service driven attitude of the Brits.

Initially many of the team were fellow players and the business still has a close association with the local rugby club giving it a strong, adaptable workforce, open to any challenges and always prepared to work hard for their customers.

Over the years Hot Moves has gained a reputation for cheerful efficiency with many customers now in their second or third moves with the company. Customers enjoy its flexible, helpful approach coupled with the teams discretion, understanding and expertise.

You can move virtually anything with Hot Moves, whether it’s a fridge, the contents of your home or even a Banksy (yep, we’ve done that), so call on Hot Moves for an efficient, friendly, flexible approach to moving.
