So here is the written version of the Q&A I did on Wednesday on our Youtube channel to mark our 1st year as a limited company
How long have we been doing removals?
We where founded in Hull UK in 2012 , so that means we are now into our 9th Year , we rebranded in 2017 from Clark trading and logistics
Why did we rebrand to ERS
We rebranded to European relocation services in 2017 to better reflect the companies direction as we had relocated to Spain as our base of operations and started covering Spain -UK-Spain as our main operations route rather than domestic in the UK
When did you go Limited?
We went limited as ERS removal services Ltd on the 12th May 2020
What International routes do you cover ?
We cover Spain-UK-Spain
As well as various other routes to and From Spain
Like Spain -France
we Have also and do also do loads from Spain to Ireland
And cover a wide range of European countries from Spain
And yes we do cover places like Spain -Germany which we have done as few times in fact
What was the highest you have ever unloaded at on a house move?
That would be in the swiss alps at around 1500m -1600metres up (about a mile) in the winter we did a house move there from London for a customer
What ports have you travelled though ?
If my count is right it is now about 15 ports
Well among others
Dover -Calais -Dunkirk
Barcelona to Palma Majorca
We have also collected from Grimsby docks Boston and Immingham docks
Ever travelled though the channel tunnel?
Yes on two occasions when we did a load from Hull to Paris
Ever done any Islands (excluding the UK mainland)
yes we have , we have done 2 loads from Wigan for Example to Majorca
And 2 loads to Ireland via the UK (where we put them on pallets and then they where shipped over via pallet network company
Do you cover the Canary islands ?
No due to the very expensive ferries this is one route we don't send the van on
Have you ever done any loads to or from Africa ? giving how close you are to a few ports that ship there?
No we haven't , we have been asked to quote on one to there Morocco before but the customer decided to stay in Spain in the end
What is the Furthest north you have been?
What is the furthest you have delivered a car?
Our longest distance car delivery to date is a Vw from Baza Spain to Guildford UK at 1370 miles
i2020 has sure been a strange year and an eventful year full of hurdles for us here at European Relocation services , (like it has been for many business all over the world) and that is putting it politely
Some people are saying 2020 is the worst year in living memory, which with covid and a few other factors seems to be spot on
however that doesn't mean there haven't been some upsides , some ¡company first and the likes this year for European Relocation services
So lets look at the positives we have had this year and with how 2020 has been they are bigger positives in many ways then they might have been in a normal year
*First deliveries to Ireland (we have this year done 2 jobs sending things to Ireland (household moves and household contents )(in the end done via Pallets so we have also as well as sending our first loads to Ireland from Spain in 2020 sent our first pallets there)
*Most storage customers to date
*largest overall storage volumes to date
*Largest individual storage volume to date
*some of our largest volume jobs to date
*Most cars delivered to date
*Our largest trade assistance job to date when we did a tranship and Porter assist for Gb Liners (team and truck from their Leeds depot) at 75 cubic metres near Bedar Spain in November
Meet the new van (will be collected in a few days just after our #Germany job)
As some of you may know we have been having major issues with our current van well they are behind us and the new van will us shortly
And thank you to Alastair at Fleet direct for sorting this for us
Firstly I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that we will be resuming operations from Spain on the 15th May
Secondly we have hit our first 100 + Followers today on our Instagram account
As already mentioned our main twitter account has gone over 3000 + followers and keeps growing (hit 3000 on 5TH May)
And fourthly and the biggest of our latest company news As of today we are a limited company registered with companies house in England and Waled company number 12597880
Our full name as you will have noticed is ERS Removal Services Ltd trading as European relocation services
So 2019 is all but over the van is back from its last Spain - UK . Spain trip of the year and only has quick deliveries left to do for all of 2019 before setting of on the 2nd January to start all over again. So it seems like a good time to look back over 2019 for us
Here are a few of the highlights
And from us here at European relocation services we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year
