Office removals and Preston removals in one day
Perhaps it can be too much to ask but combining 2 furniture removals in one day can be a little stressful bearing in mind that rarely house removals go exactly to plan.
The first removal was a house move relocating from Ashton in Preston, the enquiry was a bit last minute as the customer only had the phone call from the solicitor giving them a weeks notice to move and luckily I was able to help. We arrived at 9am and luckily the removal wasn’t too large, as I didn’t get a chance to carry out a survey. This particular part of Preston is a little tight to be driving a 40ft truck into position.
This time I decided to stay with the vehicle until it was loaded which took until midday, then back to the yard to be parked up until the customer rings us when they get the keys which is the norm for a Friday.
The next job was the completion of the office removal that we started on Wednesday which started with a lot of archive storage boxes on the third floor. Thankfully the crew completed the removal in a couple of hours just in time for the keys to arrive for the removal to Preston.
The actual delivery was in Fulwood, in fact a few problems were apparent straight away, firstly the front door was a bit narrow to get the suite through and secondly the turn at the top of the stairs was too tight to get the bed frame round, it was down to me to carry out the dismantling and reassembly of the frame.
While I had my drill out I decided to help the customer out by putting the feet on her new suite
I visited this same street on a survey a couple of days later for a lady moving locally it turned out to be one of the largest removals I have ever seen, in fact three vans would only just cover it. The customer wanted the garage moving first which was one van load, secondly the outside items which was another van load and finally the contents of the house. This reminded me of a service removal we did from a remote part of Chorley to Charnock Richard using a hire vehicle as the access was so bad, luckily the customer did not want it doing for free, but the removal did involve a number of trips, the customer had quite a specialised job carrying out services office jobs which was in fact his own business.
