Almost at the end of May... unbelievable. And we are still having to cover things from the rain and cover carpets! Todays move was a large one from West Kirby to Hoylake. We supplied 5 staff and 2 vehicles and had already packed on Tuesday. Luckily the clients were straight into the new house, as they were moving from rented to a place they had bought, with some overlap. They won't miss the £2000 per month rental, thats for sure!
This is a busy week, with 2 or even 3 removals a day. Today we moved a splendid old Chap to Burscough, so he could be nearer to his family. And we moved a Chester Estate Agent within the Chester area. Feedback from both moves was very positive, so we expect to continue increasing our presence in the chester area over the coming year. We have quite a bit of storage coming in this week, with a few containers going out.
Feet up for everyone today! We don't work Sundays, unless it is part of a very large move that needs to run over a weekend, or, very occassionaly, a large office move (businesses on the move often require weekend moves, so as to reduce the downtime.)
Went to Cammel Lairds (open for the first time in 50 years, I believe) and queued for a couple of hours to have a tour of HMS Edinburgh, a class 42 destroyer, which is about to be decommisioned. It was a very interesting day. Whilst queueing, Mary (my wife) and I saw 3 tugs deftly manoevering a floating pontoon into the Camell Lairds dock area from the river. This was done just before high tide and very soon afterwards a sliding lock sealed the entrance of the "harbour" to keep the water in the dock area. There was already 2 pontoons in the dock and we saw a welder doing something to one of them.
After this we had a pleasant snack at The Tudor Rose Tearooms in Port Sunlight (opposite the Railway Station) and then went over to Liverpool to see the Ships that had come to the City for the Battle of The Atlantic celebrations. There was a great atmosphere around and it was perfect weather to potter along the Riverfront walk. Many russian sailors were on shore....lots of them returning to the Ship with shopping. A group of chattering asians delighted them by requesting a photograph with them. Lots of laughter! A lovely day!
We just have one removals crew out on Saturdays. Today we move Mr R****son from Prenton to Chirk. We started the day at our Neston Warehouse, where we loaded one container he had self delivered to us a few months ago and then ran over to Prenton to get the remainder of his items. The move went well and Jason, Peter and Dave (our 3 removals porters today) were back at our Prenton Yard by about 3.30pm.
At the Warehouse we had delivery of one storage containers worth by a local man and van setup. M***n, the owner, uses us as his storage facility, as he knows we are the best storage about!
Took some archive storage in today, mainly books. We have four 20 foot steel containers in the warehouse that provide great walk in rooms for clients who require such storage. We have plans to expand this section, so please enquire. In the afternoon we delivered 4 storage containers out to a client. These had been brought to our Warehouse by a large International remover, and we did the local domestic storage for them and final delivery out to their new Wirral home. They decided to return some items to storage, as the place they have is smaller than their previous home. Our storage rates are amazingly good and the Warehouse is fantastic. If you are considering storage then feel free to pop-in and see us.
Our second removal crew carried out a medium-sized 2 man move from West Kirby to Hoylake. The funds transfer went through OK and they were finished for about 5.00pm. Happy customers, as always! See testimonials here.
We carried out 2 moves today, one a local one out of our storage facility at Neston, the other a move from Neston to Corwen. Access was poor on this later move so we took along a van to decant into. That saved the lads from having to walk 50 yards with everything.
Since moving to Neston 2 years ago we have increased moves and storage in the area tremendously. So, NESTON, a very big thank you!
We also had 2 clients bring their own storage into the warehouse. It's really easy here as our self-storage units are brought right to the rear of your delivery vehicle, so no long walks involved. Self delivery is a nice cheap way to do it! It can be a bit gruelling moving yourself but quite satisfying when you have finished. We offer a variety of options to move your possessions, if you prefer the easy way by using us. Right from Man and Van to the full moving and storage service, plus a packing option too!
