Moving Christmas Wishes and A Happy New Year

Moving Christmas Wishes and A Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all the team at Colin Batt Removals. Whilst we pride ourselves on being great removers the ultimate removal man has to be Father Christmas. He can deliver to every child in the land in one night…phew – just think of all those stairs and chimney pots! Whilst Father Christmas will be busy moving heaven and earth to get all the pressies to the kids, we will take a well earned break, the office will be shut from 24th December but we’ll be back to look move your house or piano from 5th January 2015. That said the phone will be periodically monitored for any emergency calls, just in case Santa needs a hand moving your new piano upstairs!

 

2014 was a great year and that is thanks to all the hard work the whole team put in. A big thank you to all our Porters who move your furniture, the office staff who arrange your removal and the management team who look after the rest of the staff. To celebrate we all had a Christmas party in Canterbury, Kent and had a traditional Indian curry! The vindaloo was too hot for everyone even in the depths of December.

 

Best wishes to all for the New Year and we look forward to helping all of our existing and new customers from Kent, Surrey and beyond with any and all of your house removals needs. Remember to call us if you need to move house, want some items stored after all the Xmas gifts you received, or have a piano you want delivering. Don’t forget we can help with document archives if you are doing a bit of office spring cleaning too.

 

All the best to you and yours and have a fantastic, fruitful and fun 2015.
