A couple has posted an advert online offering £2,000 for a removals driver comfortable with carrying out the work without any clothing.
The unique job request was posted to a delivery, removals and transport marketplace, however after the site was unable to process the request due to the nature of the job, it offered to assist the couple in finding an appropriate candidate.
The couple say they’re hoping to move mid-September, and would like to find a naked mover in the coming weeks.
The request, made via the Shift website last week, states that the naturist couple is moving from their flat into a bigger home, and is looking for a home removals professional willing to help them move house in the nude.
The couple is offering an additional £2,000 to the successful candidate, and will provide modesty underwear to take their belongings to and from the properties.

There are approximately four million people that define themselves as naturists or nudists in the UK.
Following the submission of the request via the Shift website, representatives from the brand contacted the couple to let them know that they would not be able to fulfil the contract due to the nature of the request. However, the company is happy to provide a ‘Shift’ van to any moving professional who is willing to help.
The request states the couple have been naturists for around five years, and although they don’t expect others to fully follow their traditions, as the removals professional will be entering their home and handling their belongings, they would prefer if they did.
The couple says that the candidate will be expected to load and unload all of their belongings at the new home, which is around 15 miles away.
Representatives from Shift have said that should this position be filled, and there is a demand for this type of service it will look at making it a part of its offering, where it will set up a ‘naked movers’ page onsite so naked movers and naturist customers can connect.
Shift is a convenient delivery, removals and transport marketplace that allows consumers and businesses to move items using its growing UK-wide network of drivers (‘Shifters’).
Jacob Corlett, founder of Shift said: “Since our launch we’ve seen our fair share of unusual requests, however nothing has ever topped this. As a brand, our goal is to offer every person the most professional and bespoke service, whatever their needs may be – so, when this request came through, although we weren’t able to fulfil it, we knew we could help in some way.
“Obviously this is quite a unique request, however if this goes well, and we see demand increase following this appeal, then there’s no reason we wouldn’t look at turning it into a fully-fledged service – with millions of nudists and naturists in the UK, it’s not an insignificant number of potential customers, after all!”
