so tomorrow the 10th June is our Lynne's Birthday (in my case Ashley Mum (and in Paul's case his wife)
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
Is it still possible to #MovetoSpain since #Brexit?
Yes it is still possible and many people have already in 2021 made #Spain their home
Yes there is more Paperwork to do now
Including Customs clearance for your goods (which we arrange and sort as part of our service)
But yes it is still possible to move to Spain from the UK
So as you may well be aware all loads that enter or leave Spain for the UK must go though a Customs facility
which 1 can cause delays of course as we have to wait there for Clearance before re hitting the load
But 2 please be advised that at the current time this places are in Spain not 24/7 and shut around 6pm
And are in only a few places open Saturday but that is for limited hours
As a result this effects our schedule as we have to ensure we don't cross the Spanish boarder on the weekends (or if we do we will have to sit waiting until Monday morning )
Which of course means .We have to ensure the schedule reflects this
*So another thing to note is that each time a load (in your case your items /belongs ) cross the boarder (as in Imported to Spain) they need customs clearance which of course means if you send say 3 loads they need each a set of clearance and each time there is fees to the customs brokers , so for example if you send a 2nd load with us the customs broker fees need paying again they are not a one of sum/figure but each time
