Late hand over of keys, same day Exchange and Completion of Contracts, short notice by customers of their Completion day and cancelled moves due to postponement of Exchange and Completion.

All of these problems can be minimised by creating awareness of our industry's issues to Conveyancing Solicitors, Estate Agents and their customers.

The Moving etc... Network will be running a marketing and PR campaign to highlight our industry's problems to other property professionals. Advertising in their trade magazines, articles to highlight the issues, attendance at estate agent and conveyancing solicitor conferences and much more.

For more information please contact Jane Finch on +44 (0) 7974 185450 or email jane@movingetcnetwork.com.

Please help us raise awareness of our industry's issues by financially supporting our campaign.

Thank you

Gross Train Weight Question

Can anyone enlighten me.  I run a 3500kg van towing a box trailer of 3000kg and my train weight is 6500kg.  So far so good. I got weighed a few weeks ago, and I was well below the 6500kg limit, but the van itself when put on the scales was 3900kg (with trailer attached) and each axle was below it's maximum. 

My question is - seeing as the axles were not overloaded, and the gross train weight was not exceeded - was I officially overloaded with the van.

Assistance Newcastle (NE25) tomorrow

If anyone is in a position to provide a skilled, professional porter in the above postcode region tomorrow please email me.

We would require assistance from @10:30, through to @13:00. More than happy to pay a proper rate as, well, lets face it, just 2.5 hours aint a lot is it!

Quality is the most important factor, not the cost.

Customer feedback - To show or not to show, that is the question.

Hi guys,

I would really appreciate some feedback for our new website system being developed at the moment.

If your customer feedback could be shown on the websites of both your own website and your membership organisation website, do you think that negative feedback should be on there as well? i.e. all feedback is transparent and not manipulated.

Or do you think you should get a right of reply to sort out problems before it goes live online?

Also do you think there should be a time limit…

Vehicle planning software - Do you use it, does it save you money and make you more efficient, or is it worth it?

Having been a transport manager in the past I know from experience that sometimes using software can get in the way. It can be time consuming when it's quicker to look at a gigantic wall map, or flick open an atlas. Plus over time you become an expert in where places are, how long they take to get there, and our logistical brains get quite savvy in working it all out.

With the new sat nav era and vehicle tracking software available to locate the nearest crew to a job gone wrong so you can…

CPC for trailer towing

Hi. Does anyone know if you need to do CPC training if you sometimes pull a trailer behind a 3.5t van?

We have an O licence, and have the tacho in scope when the van and trailer combination exceeds 3500 kg (so when either van or trailer or both are laden - as when both are unladen total is just <3500 so out of scope) 

Not sure if we need to bother with CPC training?
