Ashland to Monkston, Milton Keynes, 24th March 2016.
We were contacted by a customer who needed to move at very short notice. The customer lived in a large 5 bedroom house within Ashland, Milton Keynes. This was on the 24th March just before the mad Easter rush and before the Stamp duty changes. Lucky for them we had the staff and vehicle availability to do the removal as most other removal companies did not have the resources that day.
After an initial home survey the customer agreed to our written quote.
This however was no easy move. The 5 bedroom house was fully packed and was more like a 7 bedroom house in terms of contents. The surveyor made sure that there were enough removal men on the removal team to ensure all went smooth. He calculated that three Luton vans would be needed as well as our large 18 tonne removal truck, so an awesome 4900 cu ft of boxes and furniture to shift!
There were two other potentially difficult things to overcome and that was we had to meet time deadlines and resolve access issues!
The new owners were moving in on the same day which meant we had to move everything out by 1300 at the latest. Another problem was that there was a metal barrier in close to the front door which restricted access. Our surveyor had noted all these potential problems down and made sure that the removal team consisted of eight experienced removal men and were equipped with tools needed to remove the metal barrier to ease access which would ensure easy loading of the vehicles especially with the bulky furniture.
The crew arrived 8am and the team leader introduced everyone to the customer. Carpet runners were placed on the carpets, as a matter of course, to protect against dirt. Wardrobes and chest of drawers were shrink wrapped to prevent drawers and doors from opening in transit. We also provided wardrobe boxes to the customer for their hanging clothes before loading.
Two of the crew stayed in the vans to ensure all was packed correctly in the truck or vans whilst the other six loaded. All the furniture was protected with either removal blankets or quilted covers and properly tied in with the use of webbing and making use of the tie rails inside the vehicles to ensure all was secure and safe.
All the bulky furniture and heavy boxes went in first with the lighter and fragile loads on top. The customer was amazed that after just three hours all was loaded! The team leader made sure nothing had been left behind and made sure the customer was satisfied with everything. The crew then set off to the customers new address and took the opportunity to have lunch whilst waiting for the legal go ahead to unload.
The call was given at 1500 to unload and it had started to rain!! The men again followed the routine of putting carpet runners down first ensuring all the floors were kept clean in the large three floored town house in Monkston, Milton Keynes.
We asked the customer to stay at the front door to tell us where all the contents needed to go which helped enormously. The unloading took just three hours and all was well coordinated.
The customer at the end filled in our Checkatrade rating at the end of the job and we were pleased to have scored 10 out 10 for tidiness, courtesy,
work quality and reliability and said they would recommend our services to all their friends.
Our reputation matters and we strive to do a job well done even if jobs are huge and complicated. There is no doubt our removal services remove a lot of stress and a lot of very hard work when your moving home!
