Moving from London to Manchester in a day

Last week we had an interesting removal job with a neighbour of ours in Ruislip, North-West London. In 21st century, one would suppose that a great part of the leads (especially in the moving service business) come from “contemporary” sources – Internet websites, online advertising, etc. And in fact it is close to the truth – many of the people, who eventually hire Best London Removals Ltd for their removal job, do come from the internet. But it is not always so, and here is an example of this.

It occurred that this particular removal was initiated by a person, who happened to live near our main office in Ruislip. He had spotted the branded vans of the company and decided to talk to us to get more detailed information on our removal service. As all our customers know, we offer a free removal quotation (could be arranged through the website here), so it was a pleasure for our surveyor to speak to the potential customer and to explain how the removal process in this particular case could proceed. The customer was very happy with our handling of his inquiry and soon the deal was closed – Best London Removals Ltd was selected to do the relocation for our Ruislip neighbour.
