I can only assume the main usage of the word is a move. As in "We made a move from one house to another." Just a guess though, I'm not a native German speaker.
Removal means Umzug as well as procession! For eyample, it is now carnival in Germany and in many of the Catholic towns and cities there are processions through the streets which are called in the singular Umzug (Umzüge in plural) so both are correct. I have reported it, let's see what happens!
