- The Removals Job: moving from Artarmon to Mosmon (via temporary storage at our Northern Beaches Storage depot).
- Moving Date: 7th August, 2014.
- Client Name: Nichola (‘Nicky’).
- Time Taken for the move: 6.5 hours (load only, Artarmon to Northern Beaches Storage depot) and 5.5 hours (from the Storage depot to Mosman on the 9.8.14).
- Removals Trucks: Isuzu FSR 700 and Isuzu NPR300.
- Weather: overcast & mild – perfect winter removal climate, dry and not too hot.
- Removalist 1: Tom. Tom’s a six foot 2 blonde Yorkshireman who may sound like Geoff Boycott’s illegitimate grandson, but he’s a deceptively pleasant fellow despite the occasional need for what he says to come with subtitles. Plus he’s got an easy way about him and a razor sharp wit (that he’s not afraid to use!). Oh, and when not lugging people’s furniture hither and yon, you’ll find him (and Matt) fishing at any of the Northern Beaches fantastic fishing spots.
- Removalist 2: Juan. A very nice guy and a real gentleman, Juan is originally from Columbia, loves his football, and for reasons best known to him, enjoys walking around with a bum bag circa 1988 style! (The lads are thinking of buying him a Boom-Box and some MC Hammer pants to complete the look!).
- Removalist 3: Stephen. Has only been with Removalist Northern Beaches Sydney for approximately 6 months so is a complete newcomer compared to Scott! Worked for his father’s engineering company back in the North East of England and his practical, hands on background has turbo charged his removal skills. Often needs a translator to interpret his thick, Geordie accent, and goes around calling anyone and everyone Joss (which is apparently northern English slang!). A very positive worker, his happy disposition is the same after a tiny 3 hour job or a 13 hour extravaganza and, consequently, is very popular and ends up on lots of larger house moves.
- Removalist 4: Scott. Goes by the nickname of ‘Polar Bear’. Has been a removalist with us for approximately 13 years and drives our biggest truck, the FSR 700, which is a huge removalist truck at 50 cubic meters! You will not find a more conscientious employee than Scott. An absolute perfectionist, we send Scott to all our top end work as he is incredibly thorough and diligent. Among other removalist jobs he’s headed up for us, Scott has been our point-man for huge $100,000 plus Sydney removals clients like Arthur Boyd and Brett Whiteley.
This removals job involved moving the friend of a repeat customer who very kindly recommend us because the client had previously had several bad experiences with removals companies. So part of our job today was to restore her faith in the removals industry. No easy task given some of the cowboys who operate on the northern beaches and call themselves ‘removalists’!
Upon arriving at the client’s home, we found Nicky was a little apprehensive as she guided us through the house, so we did our level best to put her mind at ease. On first appearances, we could tell the house had been meticulously looked after and was full of expensive pieces of art and exquisite furniture, with not a single piece of flat pack or self-assembled furniture to be seen. Things like her beautiful leather King Furniture lounges we soon realised were going to need particular attention when moving them.
After quickly addressing who would take control of what areas, Tom took charge of wrapping all the art and set himself up a little station on the family dining table, while Steven took charge of dismantling all the beds and started with his usual cheeky Geordie banter!
Meanwhile Scott and Juan made short work of Nicky’s many boxes and plastic tubs.
Nicky was curious to know why Scott took all the boxes and crates first and packed his truck that way, so Scott explained it was so all the furniture could be put in place first at the unload in Mosman before filling up the new home. Plus this would save time in double handling and would result in a quicker and cheaper move. All the boys commended Nicky on doing a great job of being well packed and ready to go on the day when we arrived (because this is so often not the case).
Scott’s truck was loaded to 95% capacity with some awkward, hard to stack items being put onto Tom’s smaller truck.
Upon leaving Scott asked Nicky to do a walk around with him to make sure nothing had been missed (there hadn’t) and Nicky commented that she was very grateful her friend had recommended Removalist Sydney Northern Beaches.
