About Us


Our Story

DLR Removals is a local and national removal company based in Chippenham, Wiltshire.


The company was founded in 2012 by David Rousell , who had the idea to start a small “Man with a Van” business.


Over the last 10 years, the business has gone from strength to strength. We now have a fleet of vans and have expanded into removals, house clearances, tip runs, storage, packaging and we even have our own clearance centre full of pre loved items!


Reputable Company

Our company ethos is to provide a high quality, efficient, friendly and affordable service to our customers, no matter how big or small the job is, and treat every single customer as we would like to be treated ourselves.

Trustworthy, efficient and helpful is how many would describe our removal company, and in every service, we go the extra mile. There is no job too big or too small for our friendly team, and we always adapt our solutions to suit your requirements. With 10 years in business, we know exactly how to deliver you a fantastic service.


Meet Our Team


Dave Rousell

I’m Dave Rousell , the owner and founder of DLR Removals. I started the business in 2012 as a simple man with a van service. Over the past 10 years the company has grown into a reputable household name locally, specialising in Removals and House Clearances.

I’ve lived in Chippenham all of my life , am an avid supporter of Liverpool football club, and in my spare time I enjoy spending time at my caravan near the beach in Weymouth , or spending time with my two teenage daughters.

I also have a passion for fast cars and wanted to be a motorway traffic police officer when I was younger !


Alan Hayward

Hi I’m Alan Hayward , manager of DLR Removals.

I met Dave 8 years ago. After knowing him for a year, he asked me to manage the Removals side of the business. We have grown the removal side to over 5 moves every week since then.


I believe we have an excellent team to carry out day to day work - from man with a van, waste removals, deliveries, packaging and storage to house removals.


I bought a house with my long term partner in 2019, and have 3 children - 2 boys aged 19 and 2, and a 13 year old girl.


I like all sports and a bit of gaming. I’m a Leeds Utd supporter - I guess someone has to be !


Myself, partner and children are all avid National Trust members and enjoy travelling the country to visit new places and stately homes. Our favourite place to go is Stourhead or Cornwall.
