In the last four years our team has grown significantly, these are the main team leaders.
I have had the business for the last four and a half years and in that time the business has grown quite considerably. I would like to think this is a result of the high standards shown by our staff and their work ethic.
Has been with the company for over 15 years, has seen the company grow, and been a big part of that growth. He has lots of experience and passion for the job. He is a company foreman and very hands on with the training of new staff.
Craig has been with the company for many years. A total organiser – if you are moving from a very large house, over multiple days and the move requires the packing of antiques or paintings etc Craig and his crew will be there to help you every step of the way.
As the main warehouse supervisor Doug does a lot of the on-site work, so if you are coming into store Doug will be there to organise it. Doug came to ask for a job about three years ago and we never thought he would stick it, however now named the Machine he is a bit of a housewives favourite.
Been with us for the past year, as strong as an ox, a really good long distance driver who manages to park huge lorries in the smallest of places. Full of good humour.
Coming up through the ranks David is very reliable. Now upgrading from the smaller removals carried out in vans to the larger HGV’s because we know he’s worth investing in.
Another one that came to us straight from school, totally reliable and excels at packing. The only lad we know who can move furniture all day and play a high level of football in the evenings!
Larger than life, always cheerful. Doesn’t like to sit still so can often be found tied to his chair!
Better known as ‘Arrold! Mick is the companies elder statesman, he has seen it all in the removals trade, never gets stressed and has loads of experience he is happy to share with younger members of staff.
A very good HGV driver, fairly new to the company but very able and willing to learn, and has fitted in to the team nicely.
Have to take my hat off to Andy – an experienced removal man but was short of work so offered to work for nothing to prove his worth. Is now a very important, popular member of the team. (And I do pay him!)
Better known as the Boomerang Kid as he goes between working for us and being a mechanic – always does a good job which is why he’s always welcomed back.
The companies young rookie – looks more like he should be in a boy band rather than removals but a lovely lad!
A very bright young man, very popular with customers and staff alike, nothing is too much trouble.
Very friendly lad, moved up from London to take care of his mother. Has been in removals all his working life, very experienced in all aspects of the job.
Better known as The Hub as everything goes through Shula. Loves being busy, nothing is too much trouble, always happy and bubbly, excellent customer skills.
Occasionally you pick something up of a removal that someone doesn’t require any more – this time we picked up Vanessa. We moved her and her family and she ended up working for us. She fitted the hole we never knew we had!
(And Long Suffering Wife!)
