The phrase ‘the run up to….’ doesn’t usually apply literally, but a few weeks ago we sat down and discussed the calendar of events until we stop for Christmas. Running featured heavily, even if just metaphorically. We have not stopped and have no plans to do so until Santa comes down the chimney. Unless of course, we nail it and get it all done and out the door by the 18th….. fingers crossed! Last week it began with trips to Mevagissy, Birmingham twice, Essex twice and London, all the while with half the team staying in the yard building for a big job going out this week, up to Wembley. Many a to and fro the team are doing up there. Our fabricator (Fresh Fabrications – awesome company) is rushed off his feet, with numerous jobs from small triangle brackets to 12m gangways for all the jobs through to Christmas. The office team have barely seen the installers, except those in the yard, but it’s all going smoothly and to plan which we are grateful for. Those of you in the industry will know, there are often hold ups of some sort when dealing with big commercial projects.
This week we’ve also had a 48 modular cube rental go out and return; the forklift has passed it’s loader exam with flying colours; a trip down to Plymouth finished off an ongoing job and the first of two containers due in as many weeks arrived, filled to the brim with cubes and a few bags of accessories. It was unloaded, packed away and the stock was prepared to leave again!
Over the next few weeks – incase you don’t hear from us again – we’ll be in Somerset, Cardiff, Port Solent and Doncaster, on another load of week long jobs. Lucky we’ve got such a cracking team here to keep the wheels going round! As ever, give us a call if you need help with a project or to get an idea off the ground. We’ll make it happen for you, but probably not until 2021!
Have a really wonderful week. Keep yourselves safe and I very much hope to see you back here before we collapse in a heap of Christmas stupor…..
