Removals and Storage to Watford
The Removals survey
I carried out the survey a number of weeks ago and was quite surprised at the volume of the items to be packed and moved, in fact I calculated it to be 2 truck loads including 160 book cartons, he was quite a researcher by all accounts, I costed the job to include 2 trips down to Bushey in Hertfordshire. The first load was to bring in to store while the second load was a move direct.
Luckily the customer asked us to do the job, its a good job the removal van is an 18 tonner so it could cope with the increased weight.
Fortunately I employed 2 porters to carry out the removals and storage due to me having surveys to carry out. However I carried out the main move the following day and travelled to Watford, parking up behind B&Q for the night. The following day I managed to carry out the delivery which was a little tricky for a removals company due the access for parking which caused a bit of annoyance to the locals as the van caused the road to be single track. Luckily the customer had a good relationship with the neighbours so we had minimal disruption. I was unloaded for about 2pm then set off back to Blackpool, The next day I reloaded the storage containers and set off back to Watford arriving for 4.30 pm and unloaded till about 7pm, leaving one container for the next day, I parked behind B&Q again then had a quick wash using my camping stove to heat the water. Nandos in Watford Town centre seemed like a good idea followed by an early night. The following day started with a full fry up at the cafe round the corner then finished off unloading at the customers house
