Horses for Courses

Back to reality now for our Surveyor Gary Haley. Last week he was galavanting around transporting a horse from Teignmouth to France and now we are keeping him busy, running around Devon booked in for Free Quotations. We like to keep him busy!

We have had a lot of enquiries lately from people wanting to move to France, not sure if this is to do with Brexit or not but there seems to be a trend of moving across the water. Surely can’t be for better weather,  as we have had some glorious weather here ourselves, almost like being abroad.

Monday we are off to Lossiemouth, from one end of the map to another. Will be sending the lads with a shopping list, tablet, Edinburgh rock, shell pies, slice….ooh the list is endless.

Don’t forget to keep hydrated.

Heatwave Continues

This weather reminds our very own Fiona of the Heatwave that hit London for the Virgin London Marathon back in April.  Fiona originally from Greenock, who now lives in Kingsteignton completed the the hottest London Marathon in 5hours 29minutes and 32seconds.  Disappointed with her time as many were, she still ordered a memento of the ‘horrible’ day that took her past the Cutty Sark, over Tower Bridge and accross the finish line (eventually) at The Mall.

So as many of us bask in the Summer sunshine, remember to slip, slop, slap – slip on protective clothing, slop on the suncream and slap on a hat and if your running or taking any exercise, keep hydrated.

Chiefs 3rd visit to Twickenham for Aviva Premiership Rugby Final

Ok, I needed a favour. I am a huge Exeter Chiefs fan and for the first time am off to Twickenham for the Final. Having seen the sale of Final T-shirts, asked my boss – Gary Haley of Team Removals and Storage, if he could please go and get a couple for me. Being the kind gent that he is, off he went. Sadly, T-shirts aren’t in yet, however, he did send this to me – rubbing it in…. only the legend that is Thomas Waldrom.

Belinda, Gary and all the Team at Team Removals (especially me) wish the Exeter Chiefs lads all the very best for Saturday. COYC

Elite Honours Remover

  On Monday, Belinda and Gary were invited to Bristol to collect an award from the National Guild of Removers as a certified Elite Honours Remover.  The award is in recognition for our continuous exemplary and outstanding customer service record over the period of 6 years that we have been in membership of the National Guild of Removers & Storers as well as the Removals Industry Ombudsman Scheme.

This award is the highest achieveable by removers that have been members of both named organisations for 6 years.

We could not have done or achieved this without the Team behind the scenes and the lads on the road.  Congratulations everyone for your hard work and continued outstanding customer service.

This weekend also sees the Devon County Show and with a mini heatwave expected, the crowds should be attending in their droves.   The Exeter Chiefs take on Newcastle Falcons in the Aviva Premiership Rugby Semi-Finals 3.30pm at Sandy Park on Saturday COYC.

There is also another event…… oh yes, the Royal Wedding.  We at Team Removals wish Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the best for the future.

Hottest London Marathon on Record

Our very own Fiona ran in the Virgin London Marathon. The hottest on record. “It was brutal” “the heat was a huge factor in peoples times and most were down on their predicted times by 30minutes to an hour” Fiona was running for Cystic Fibrosis as her daughter has the condition. To donate follow the link: – https://cysticfibrosislondonmarathon.everydayhero.com/uk/Scillyscot

Busy week next week the the usual removals, then its Bank Holiday. Hopefully a heatwave to enjoy an ice cream in Exmouth.

New Beginnings

Busy week at Team Removals, we welcome Michelle French to the Team. Michelle will work alongside Fiona and together will assist you with your removal.

This week we have had a variety of moves, into Store, direct Nottingham from Yeoford with packing and removal from storage to Lancaster, so plenty to keep our lads busy.

We would like to wish Fiona All the best – Fiona is taking on the London Marathon this Sunday 22nd April and is not looking forward to the heat, however, we are sure she will complete the mission.

Happy Easter

Hello everyone, just to let you know, that we at Team Removals have survived to tell the tale of the Beast From the East on both occasions, and our customers managed to arrive at their new homes in Newton Abbot, Exeter, Torquay and Kingsteignton eventually.  We are now heading into the Easter break where we have completed moves to Cullompton, Exeter and Salcombe this week so now all the men are going to have a well-deserved 4 day break and hopefully miss the Beast from the East 3.  So, it’s a Happy Easter to you all, and try not to go overboard on the Chocolates.

Back to Normal

Snow is lovely,but didnt it cause a lot of disruption. We had a couple of moves that we were unable to undertake on the actual move date due to the snow and the Red Warnings which meant that our vehicles were unable to attend. However, the lads are great at Team and they came in on a Sunday to move our clients from Paigton to Hertfordshire, a little delayed but everyone emerged safely. Monday we were playing catch up with the more local moves around Exeter and Chudleigh and thankfully our customers understood the situation and were only too pleased to receive their items a little later than expected. We are back to normal now and gearing up for Spring… hopefully the snow means we are in for a brilliant Spring/Summer…..
What do you think?

Winter is not over.

Keeping it brief.  Another busy week at Team Removals. Got as far as Croydon this week. Plenty to keep us occupied next week and with the added excitement of the beast coming, the boys will need to either keep moving or dress up warm to keep the beast at bay.

So whether you are in Lanarkshire, Lancashire or Lustleigh, keep warm everyone. Go for a run!!!!

Roadwork Mania

Residents are told to take holiday if they can as four roads are closed at same time including one short stretch which means a 19-mile diversion!!

The following roadworks are creating havoc with commuters within Devon –

1. Wolborough Street will be closed 24 hours a day from Monday, February 12, to Saturday, February 17, for the work will take place between Wolborough Street traffic lights (Asda) and the Ogwell Cross roundabout.
2. The A383 Ashburton Road will be closed between its junctions with Elmwood Avenue and Barton Drive from 6:30pm to midnight between Monday, February 5, and Friday, February 16 while preparatory work is carried out in advance of path improvements.
3. Work at Ware Barton, around Kingsteignton, on the A380, where are the daytime lane closures and 40mph speed restrictions in place throughout the duration of this work to ensure the safety of site staff and the travelling public during the latest phase of the programme of repairs on the A380. There will also be a 40mph speed restriction on the northbound carriageway for safety when the bridge deck works are taking place in the outside lane (lane two).
4. From Monday, February 12, there will be daytime lane closures with a 50mph speed restriction in place, and full closures overnight from 7pm to 6am on Monday to Friday evenings at Telegraph Hill. This will enable drain cleaning and vegetation clearance to be carried out, which is expected to take about four weeks to complete

A39 west of Bucks Cross to Dowland Cross
Work will take place on the A39 west of Bucks Cross to Dowland Cross between 19 February and 7 March 2018.
The road will be closed 24hrs a day during this period with a signed diversion route in place
A380 – planned roadworks
Work on the A380 is planned to start on 29 January 2018 with an anticipated finish date of 23 March 2018.
The work will cover the Telegraph Hill southbound and Ware Barton to Penn Inn southbound areas (further details below) and will be undertaken using lane closures with speed restrictions and night-time road closures where necessary. The overnight closures will be in place up to and including 2 March 2018 to allow work on the road construction.
Signed diversion routes will be in place while the road is closed.
A377 – Chapel Downs, Crediton
This work will take place on the A377 between Queen Elizabeth Drive and Higher Road, in order to stabilise the carriageway edge and resurface the cracked section of road.
The scheme commenced on 15 January 2018 and will continue for approximately 4 weeks (weather dependent). The road will be closed 24hrs a day but could be re-opened sooner subject to favourable conditions.
A381 Wolborough Street, Newton Abbot
Work will take place between Wolborough Street traffic lights (Asda) and Ogwell Cross roundabout, Newton Abbot during the half-term week of 12 to 17 February 2018. The road will be closed 24hrs a day during this period with a diversion route advised for through traffic.
Carrying out the work during half-term will avoid disruption to the substantial number of school bus services which use this route.
A39 near Shirwell
This work will take place on the A39 near Shirwell, at the Zig-zag bends section, in order to stabilise the carriageway edge and resurface the road.
The scheme commenced on 2 January 2018 and the road will remain closed until the anticipated completion of 29 March 2018. The road will be closed 24 hrs a day.
A382 – Temporary traffic lights at Great Tree Park
Traffic lights are currently in place at Great Tree Park on the A382 near Chagford.
The lights are due to be in place at least until April 2018 and are required due to a collapsed culvert (a structure allowing water to flow under the road).

Despite all these roadworks and delays, Team Removals have still been able to carry out their work to the customers satisfaction :-

“I would like to thank you and the two men who moved my belongings – I was impressed with the efficient service from start to finish!”

So, whether you are in Bovey Tracey, Chagford, Newton Abbot, Torquay, Exeter, Cullompton or Croydon…. rest assured that Team Removals won’t let you down.
