Local removals in Preston-International removals Lancaster

removals prestonThe problem with January is that it is probably the quietest time of the year and us furniture removers have to up our game when it comes to winning new business. This was certainly the case this week when I went to do a removal quote for a job in Esprick near Kirkham, they were a lovely old couple but I nearly had a heart attack when I looked at the access which was a long walk due to the low trees that my removal van couldn’t get under, if that wasn’t enough the drive way was loose stones, making it a nightmare to walk on and impossible to use a sack truck for the real heavy stuff, once inside the house I made my biggest mistake, the customer wanted to know if I did an unpacking service, I said I could but tried to convince them that it was a bad idea mainly because it was costly and impractical due to the lack of flat surfaces available unless we put the items in cupboards resulting in the customer not being able to find anything. The problem was the customer still wanted a price and I failed to spot it, much to my disappointment when I phoned them a week later to check if they received the quote they told me they had chosen another removal company in Lancaster because they gave them a price for unpacking.

Next survey was a lady in Lancaster moving house to Brighton, now this enquiry came from estate agent friend of mine in Lancaster whom I met on social media. From the outside the house was terraced and looked fairly small, until I walked in and discovered not only was it full of heavy antique furniture but had 3 floors. The bedrooms had wardrobes which needed dismantling, they were both challenging as well. Some very large plants in the garden topped off what was a very large move, apparently she was moving in with her partner in Brighton and was leaving her job in Lancaster working for the museum,
