After spending 20 years working for some of the most prestigious moving companies in the USA, Ireland, and UK, working his way up from summer help to senior foreman /Crew chief, Danny decided at the start of 2018 it was time to take all of the amazing values, and skills he has acquired over the years and start his own exciting new venture, and so Danny & Co Moving was born.
Danny firmly believes that with the right blend of hard work, and humour that your moving day should be as exciting, and stress free as possible.
Moving house isn’t always a straightforward matter of collecting your possessions from one property and then depositing them at another. Sometimes there is a slight delay between when you need to move out of your current address and into another.
Danny and Co’s storage solutions, however, provide you with the flexibility that you need to keep all your possessions safe, no matter the status of your move. They collect the items you want to store from your current address and then release them to your new one the moment you give them the go-ahead.
Secure storage from Danny and Co provides you with the flexibility you need, no matter what your move throws at you. You can also use their solutions if you’re carrying out renovations or a new fit-out of your premises.

Whether you’re a home mover or an office-based business looking for flexible relocation options, they are here to help.

One of the great things about their storage solutions is how they make things easier for you. With us, you can store all your possessions at one of our secure units while you sort out the rest of the details of your move. You don’t have to do everything on the same day. If there is a delay or you want to schedule belongings to arrive at a later date, they can help.
Their storage solutions are ideal for office removals. You can keep extra desks, chairs, computer equipment and other items at a secure location, ready for when you need them.
“The company is only in its infancy but I’m busy as I would like to offer more boutique style service. There are a lot of big companies out there and what they don’t have are the same qualities that I do, when you have a small business it is easier to maintain the quality. Pound for pound, we offer the best service in the country and if there are enquiries for jobs that I cannot do I will pass them on to other companies that I know and trust,’’ explained Danny O’Neill.
“I really care about the customers’ welfare and if you can help somebody out and make a living, it is perfect. It is a growing business and I would get work through referrals from previous clients. I’m 100% confident that when someone has moved with us, they will never move with anybody else.
“I have a good, core group of guys that I share the work with. This year is a year of learning and growth but I’m so excited to see what the future holds for the business. I’m starting to find my niche with the higher end type of move and there is huge growth potential in the next five years,’’ continued Mr O’Neill.
“Removals for the last number of years have been very predictable in that it is busy in the summer, quiet in the winter and there is a peak before Christmas. Post pandemic removals are different because people have been looking at the same four walls for the last two years and they have a little extra money saved and they are spending it on renovations.
People don’t have the same strong desire to live in Dublin as they can now work from home, people are moving out of Dublin as they are getting a cheaper property elsewhere and they are happy out which also means that my work is also taking me further afield.
“Moving into and moving out of a home is a big deal for people. Nowadays people are moving because they want to move more so than previously where they had to move to such a place due to their work commitments. A house is bricks and mortar, a home is the memories you create along with the bits and pieces that you have lying around the house.
“To a lot of people there is a story behind a shot glass for example, you meet people very fleetingly and you don’t know what is going on in their lives and for me it doesn’t matter if I am moving a celebrity, somebody who is wealthy and living in a huge house or someone who is living in a one bed apartment or bedsit and they are moving to another property of the same calibre, everyone is treated the very same and they all deserve the same level of service and dignity when they are moving home,’’ he enthused.
When it comes to advice Danny would offer anyone in advance of moving house?
We are a full service moving company and we can pack all of your belongings safely into labelled boxes or the customer can pack themselves. When customers are packing themselves I will always advise them to pack their belongings into boxes (rather than bags and crates) which any moving company will be able to provide, don’t overfill boxes, have any essential items that you will need for your family/ pets left to one side in the instance that you need to put some boxes into storage for a couple of days before moving to your new property.
“Always make sure that anything that is precious to you is kept to one side and taken away by yourself especially when it comes to passports or other important documentation.
“We can pack a three or four bedroom house in a day whereas if the homeowner is doing it themselves it can take longer which is not very cost effective as you may have to take time off from your job to pack your house. When we pack, the contents of the boxes are also insured by us,’’ imparted Danny.
“Decluttering as you go is the biggest tip I can give to anyone. Rather than pack everything up and say that you will declutter when you get to your new house, do it before you leave. When you get to the new house it will end up in a corner or your attic and it will never be sorted. Be ruthless when it comes to decluttering!”
