How to keep your donkey's feet on the ground

29th May 2015

We like to keep our removals vehicles in good working order because they are the core of our business. Without them we aren't moving anything for anyone! Thankfully we have a good moving team who like to keep things shape shape and Bristol fashion. And of course, all our vehicles undergo regular maintenance checks to make sure they're fit for purpose.

Our removals fleet is wide and varied: we have one man vans, mini-vans, small lorries and large lorries...they're all designed to help you move house! They're coachbuilt with drop-down ramps to make it quick and easy to load and unload your furniture. And they're all fully equipped with tie rails, twill furniture ties, furniture blankets, piano wheels (where required), sack trucks, brooms, dust pans, brushes, tool boxes, furniture keys and first aid kits (just in case).

What's more, our team know how to pack a van or lorry properly, unlike some people who are clearly hell bent on overloading their truck, car, or bike or cart to the full irrespective of the laws of gravity. So much so in fact that they clearly forgot there was a donkey attached to the other end or a need to see out the rear view mirror! So, if you do plan on moving house yourself, using whatever vehicle or animal you can lay your hands on at least take our advice and follow these simple steps:

  1. Keep your donkey's feet on the ground at all times.
  2. Make sure you can see where you're going.
  3. Make sure your passengers are sitting comfortably.
  4. Make sure you don't sink.
  5. Make sure fragile or delicate items are packaged properly and aren't exposed.
  6. Makes sure you can see out the back of your vehicle.
  7. Don't stack things too high.
