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.
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?
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!!!!
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.
The last couple of weeks have been full on. Removals have been coming in thick and fast, with the rush to be moved in before Christmas and get all your decorations up and preparations underway in your new properties before Santa arrives.
We have been near and far, been to London, Kent, Croydon and Cornwall, Exeter, Exmouth, Totnes and Bovey Tracey.
Next week we are off north of the border to Edinburgh and hoping to catch sight of some proper snow.
Whatever you are doing this next week, we wish you all the best. Keep warm and safe and if you are planning to move in 2018, why not give us a call or drop us an email. We’d love to hear from you.
From all of us at Team Removals, wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year
It’s been a while since our last entry. We’ve been busy. October saw us going to Bradford and Worcester as well as our usual local removals, Exeter, Newton Abbot and Torquay. November was like playing musical chairs with some removals. Its amazing how late in the day people are notified of their removal dates. Some sadly we have had to turn away due to being so busy, however, the majority we have been able to help.
November also saw the Christmas lights being turned on, on Thursday 16th November by Exeter Chief wingers Jack Nowell and Olly Woodburn. The city centre was packed and the Christmas Market was a buzz with happy shoppers. (They must have tried the Chocolate Wine….) Good Luck to Exeter Chiefs who take on Bath at Sandy Park this Saturday 2nd December. When we will hopefully see Jack Nowell back after an eye injury and Sam Simmonds (Teignmouth boy), Henry Slade, Harry Williams and Tomas Francis all back from their Autumn Internationals.
December is proving to be just as busy, I guess with people wanting to be in before Christmas. We have Kent, Cornwall and Edinburgh in our sights before we can start enjoying our own Christmas Festivities. No doubt, I will have other information before then. In the meantime, Happy Shopping…..
Another busy week for us all here at Team Removals, but nothing too far. Tintagel in Cornwall was the farthest, however, on Monday we are off to bonnie Scotland for a wee move to Lanarkshire. Hopefully the lads will bring us back some Tablet, shell pies or even some slice. We are also off to Manchester, Carlisle and Hertfordshire, proper globe trotting next week. Have a great weekend
Another varied route this week for the lads and lasses at Team Removals. Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Exmouth and the Wirral – Somerset and Warminster. They are certainly getting a variety of Scenes as Summer turns to Autumn.
Good luck to the Exeter Chiefs against London Irish at Sandy Park this Saturday 3pm kick off. A close match against Gloucester last Friday – hoping for a better result this weekend.
Thank goodness for another Bank Holiday. The lads at Team Removals have had a busy week carrying out removals from Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Dawlish and Exeter to Taunton, Huddersfield, London, Totnes, Torquay and Exminster.
Think they deserve a well earned sherbert or two.
Well done Lads – Cheers
and Happy Bank Holiday to Everyone.
