Happy New Year!
Wishing all our customers new and old a very happy and prosperous new year. It has been another improved year for Big Red Movers, with continued recovery and growth after the recession which really turned our industry on it's head.
We have had an eventful year, welcoming new staff, buying new vehicles and major refurbishments on existing vehicles. We have sought out and purchased new packaging products as part of our commitment to never sit on our laurels and always look for new ways to improve our business.
There is no getting away from the fact that the housing market is not working properly. Sales collapsing at the last moment and constant date changes through out the process. We look forward to eventually solicitors returning to a sensible set time frame for buying and selling properties. But we have found many problems this year have been the fault of online conveyancing firms (basically a call centre using self employed often unqualified idiots) who refuse to use a phone and will only email as they know will come unstuck talking to a qualified solicitor on the phone. Our advice if your estate agent says we recommend this firm, tell them you don't wish to line their pockets any further with back handers for recommending a firm in a call centre on the other side of the country. Find a local solicitor who knows the local area and knows you can come banging on his/her desk if they do not do the job Properly!
New legislation by the government to cut the outrageous costs of moving into rented accommodation is welcome news to many in the country who are stuck in the rented cycle of amateur landlords selling up forcing them to move yet again at incredible cost.
Still we feel confident about the future, our business rely's totally on repeat business and recommendation, you will not find a paid advert for us anywhere. We move a customer and at some point we will move their friends and family because we provided such a great service at a very competitive price. That's our business model and our customers are always happy customers!
A happy, prosperous new year to all.
