“The current owners/directors/operators of Caledonian Moving & Storage and MoveCare (both defacto "trading as" names for Move Store (Glasgow) Ltd., as well as "trading as" names for Air Road Sea Experts Limited) are desperate to salvage some part of their already complicated gordion knot of associated companies (stretching back more than a decade). Several of these companies are involved in ongoing and long-term disputes with customers in Glasgow, the greater UK, and abroad.
The father and son owners have operated a succession of associated limited liability removal and storage companies as Directors, de facto Directors, company Secretaries, and ex-Directors. More recently, the owners have stated their intention to cease trading as Caledonian Moving & Storage and MoveCare, and instead return to trading as SmartSpace Storage (which was definitively struck-off in 2017). It's unclear what the interrelated nature of the companies actually looks like from a legal standpoint and why the owners feel they can simply start where they left off with SmartSpace.
