We’re used to the “less than normal” here at Lavender clearances (who just happen to be London and the South’s premier property clearance company) and this clearance was no different. We were called, for the second time, to clear another property on Trowlock Island.
For those who haven’t encountered this beautiful little place, it’s a small island on the Thames just outside of Teddington accessible only by hand barge, one of those hand cranked things that no, aren’t too stable! Now I’m not going into just who it was that dropped one of the van keys overboard-we don’t tell tales here-but let’s just thank Mike, a local resident with experience in these things and a giant magnet on a string, for his timely intervention! Saved my (our!) blushes I can tell you and allowed the team to crack on, finish up and leave another job in the bag.
*Note to self-Let Paul hold the keys, I’m not to be trusted!
