Why Is Camping Like Removals?

23rd July 2018

It's getting really hot out there. Who wants to sleep indoors when you can get out in the great outdoors and feel nature under your feet? The best way to get away from it all with the kids during the summer holidays has to be camping. And you know that we at Alan Cook are experts at this old school British pastime - and with good reason. So why is camping like removals and more importantly, why are we so damn good at it?

Getting There On Time

Some campsites are in the back of beyond. The GPS has lost its signal and there are no road signs for miles around. You're closing in on the park entry hours and if you don't find the place quick, you might be slumming it in the car for the rest of the night. Fortunately in the removals game we are stone cold professionals when it comes to finding even the most out of the way destinations. We could tell you our trade secrets of how we do it - but then it wouldn't be a secret, would it?

Fantastic Team Work

It's truly hard work pitching a tent all on your own. Getting the poles in place and pulling everything till it is right is truly back-breaking work, especially in the sun. Removals men are already one step ahead of the game. We understand how to move together as one unit and truly work hard. Even though we're no masters of tents like a circus crew, what we lack in experience we make up for in the ability to co-ordinate and co-operate to reach the end we want.

Pack It Up, Pack It In

Have you ever been out camping full of enthusiasm only to find your energy levels have dropped by the time your adventure is over? It might be hard to get all those poles, pegs and the awning back into the bag. Some lesser people might even be tempted to simply throw the lot in the rear of the car and sort it out at the other end. But not us experts in the removals game. We know how to pack economically, quickly and we always make sure that everything is secured before we leave.

So if you are not going camping this summer, but instead going for the big move and switching up your property, then you are possibly not so worried about why is camping like removals.

However you may have more interest in our prices, quality service and how we go about getting people where they need to be on time. Well, if you want to use an expert company, then Alan Cook could be the one for you. Whatever job you have on the cards - big or small, give us a call and we can give you a competitive quote.
