Unlucky for some: Friday the Thirteenth. Image by N. Nattalli (via Shutterstock).

Oh dear, this day of all days has come to haunt us. We know for sure that today is Friday. But today is Friday the 13th. Supposedly an unlucky day, one noted for technological fails: computer viruses; random chaos; and the odd cancellation at Redland station. Appropriately for this much-maligned day, we have a lighthearted post for you.

Gruelling: Moving furniture out of Lindisfarne Castle took the best part of two weeks in November 2016. The removal company’s nimble-footed furniture movers had to negotiate uneven floors, narrow corridors and low doors. A move of mighty proportions! Image by Mark Godden (via Shutterstock).

We at Simply Removals Bristol have undertaken some challenging home removals in our time. Bristol itself isn’t without hills, idiosyncratic properties, and tower blocks which could try our patience. Every time, we are up to the challenge and pride ourselves on a ‘job well done’. Whether you wish to move a couple of desks to your new office or a four bedroom house, there is no such word as ‘can’t’.

Making Your Move Easier: Dave Hax’s clip aims to make moving home less than a chore. Image by Africa Studio (via Shutterstock).

With two million subscribers, Dave Hax has posted several videos on YouTube, offering useful life hacks for a UK-centric audience.  His videos attract an average of one million views.  At this time of writing, one video on moving home has attracted 2,395,066 viewers.  We at Simply Removals Bristol aim to add to this fellow’s viewing figures by sharing this clip.

With this clip, he has worked with E.ON.  There is some useful tips in there, like buying some coloured labels and grouping your boxes by label colour.  Another we particularly like, is having a selection of self-addressed envelopes.  Should any mail is sent to your old address, the new occupants could send them to your new address.  At no expense to them.


Why rave about Dave?


His moving home tips aren’t only worth watching.  He has a number of useful tips and recipes.  Like making a hollow chocolate Coca Cola bottle.  Also, using a rolling pin or a worktop to break a chocolate bar.  Whether you have come here for the moving home hack or found this post by accident, we thoroughly recommend subscribing to his YouTube channel.  You know you want to.  New videos are released on Tuesdays and Fridays.

A Monster Move Movie

A Monster Move Movie

Moving on Up: We at Simply Removals Bristol are amazed by their monster moving abilities. Image by Picture Studio (via Shutterstock).

At Simply Removals Bristol, the sighting of whole houses being moved is a very rare one indeed.  Our mix of narrow streets and traffic-clogged thoroughfares makes the task virtually impossible.  Even the slightest of delays could upset the X1 to Bristol Airport.  Courtesy of Wolfe House and Building Removers and Circa Old Houses, the two New York based companies have created a film featuring a monster move or three.

Wolfe House and Building Removals have been in business since 1970, having succeeded in shifting whole houses through the state of New York.  A full service is available for the eastern part of the United States, which includes Florida, Rhode Island, Washington D.C., and Michigan.  If the building is of historical importance, a monster move could be taken place from the western part of the USA.

Circa Old Houses is a real estate company which specialises in the sale of old houses.  Which, in Bristolian terms, would favour the multicoloured terraced houses in Lawrence Hill over the latest modern-day housing estate.  The company was founded by Elizabeth Finkelstein, due to her passion for historical architecture.
