Rumour has it he even had his nappy changed in the back of a removal van, no matter if that is true or not, with more than two decades of domestic moving experience behind him, matt has certainly developed a voice…………

Matt has been a board Member of the British Association of Removers (youngest ever at the time) and is a Director of M&G Transport Ltd. His daily role within M&G is as Surveyor, and Operations Manager, and he holds Certificates of Professional Competence in both National and International Road Haulage. Moreover in 2018 was the only person from a mover and storer in the UK appointed to the HSBG (House buying and Selling Group), which is consulting to Government on how to improve the entire home selling/buying and moving process. Plus, as you would expect from an ex-removal man he holds a full clean Category C driving license . He also passed the entry exam for HPC (highest civilian driving test in the UK) in 2013. He has an unhealthy obsession with politics and economics and specialises in annoying conveyancing solicitors on a daily basis. He is still to this day and for the last twenty years obsessive about domestic moving. It is his passion and his life. He can frequently be found on property discussion forums, especially via ‘Eat’ and ‘Pie’. He also just so happens to be a Championship Winning Racing Driver and occasionally will take time off to provide car control and racecraft instruction at many major circuits.
He lasted eight weeks at sixth form college before walking out of a politics class after asking to go to the toilet, never to return. That very afternoon he joined M&G fulltime and by 15:00 was moving a customer into their new home. That was in 1994.

It is relevant. If you are already aware of the '10,000 hours theory' by the superintelligent Malcolm Gladwell then go straight to the blog…

How does it all work on moving day?

I think it will be a good idea if we have a reference about this on this site for customers. Seems more often than not everyone is told the same thing (usually by somebody paid to be informed but in reality completely ignorant themselves) 'it'll all go through about lunchtime', or, even worse for building up peoples expectations and hopes ''it'll…

Top 5 reasons why not to move on a Friday

So, we are back to this old chestnut. Once again, and probably because the market is rampant right now we are back to the situation where many are being herded like sheep towards moving on Fridays. I won't labour the point but once again I am meeting people 'given' the date by their solicitor. In front of me and with…
