Simply Moving and Sleeping was founded in 2012 by John Kershaw. The focus of the business was to create an efficient service and repair package for local customers. The hand logo is the handprint of John’s daughter, Charlotte. The logo symbolises a caring hand and this caring approach is something Simply maintain throughout every aspect of their work. Over the years the business has grown, allowing us to not only maintain products, but also to be involved in supplying the highest quality products in the market. This allows us to provide the ideal solution to suit all of our customers’ needs. Simply are proud to be partnered with Danish based hoist manufacturer, Guldmann. Working closely with both Guldmann and our customers is the key to introducing new and innovative products, configuring unique solutions, to ensure that each and every one of our customers receives a complete solution designed to match their exact needs.

Simply is based in Elland, West Yorkshire. We provide our services in Yorkshire, the North West and the North East. Our aim is to focus within these localities to ensure we continually provide a high quality, personal service, with a prompt response time when our customers need it most.



Our mission and goal is to provide a first-class service to our customers and our suppliers. We have a wealth of experience in supplying, installing, servicing and assessing for moving and handling equipment. Simply prides itself on working closely with our customers, offering support, adding value and remaining flexible, in order to accomplish an excellent working partnership. Teamwork is the key to our success - we are small enough to care, big enough to cope.




In August 2022 Simply re-located from our site at Cragg Vale to The Print Mill in Elland. The building is an old wool mill dating back to 1859. The mill had been signposted for demolition, but we believed that the mill was a landmark and a building of historical importance to local people. We took it as our moral duty to purchase the mill and begin the essential repairs to bring the mill back to life. Our renovations include the creation of a bespoke, custom-built training room. We have incorporated solar panels into the new mill roof, allowing us to generate more than enough electricity to power our Simply vans!


Simply are fully committed to ensuring the protection of the environment and the prevention of pollution. In our mission to ‘go green’ we have recently purchased four fully electric service vans and two electric sales vehicles. We will continue to replace our diesel vehicles with electric vehicles. By removing five diesel vehicles from our fleet, and replacing them with electric vehicles, we have significantly reduced our emissions. We have reduced our carbon dioxide emissions by 166 grams per kilometre travelled for every diesel vehicle replaced.


Simply have opted for renewable energy by installing solar panels to the entire south facing side of our head office roof. With the increase in electrically powered vehicles in our fleet, we are conscious of our increased demand for electricity and the impact this would have on the electricity network. To operate with an increasingly electric fleet, we need to generate that electricity ourselves, wherever possible.
