Britain’s Strongest Removalist contest returns for The Movers and Storers Show 2017

Jun 28, 2017
It’s time to put Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 November in your diary so you can spend a little time at the Movers & Storers Show to be held again at Hangar 42, Bruntingthorpe.

Last year was a great success with many people saying it was the best ever. The trade show is attended by trusted suppliers to the industry so, if you are in the business and want to know about the latest technology, the newest trucks, the most advanced equipment and the most efficient services for your customers, this is the place to be.

As last year, the learning zone will be sponsored and facilitated by The Mover magazine. There will be a wide range of speakers discussing the topics that are making the news in the business right now. You’ll have the chance to challenge industry experts, voice your opinions or just sit back and drink in the latest information.

The packer of the year competition (POTY) has been revised by the adjudicators, Britannia Reeves, to make it even more challenging. The same company has won the event for the last three years so, maybe 2017 will be the year for a new wearer of the crown. Could it be your company?

The Britain’s Strongest Removalist competition will also return, giving individuals the opportunity to flex their muscles and prove who really is the toughest of them all and win a generous cash prize as well. As last year, the competition will we overseen by Faye Jordan, who will be make sure the event runs like clockwork and that safety procedures are observed. Faye is only a slip of a girl, at first sight, but don’t be deceived. She is: two-time British Powerlifting Champion; three-time British Bench Press Champion; she won a bronze medal for Great Britain at the Western European Powerlifting Championships in 2016; and will be fresh back from representing Great Britain at the powerlifting world championships in Lithuania. She’s also the organiser of the Britain’s Strongest Woman event so she really knows what she’s doing and, if pushed, could give any of the chaps a run for their money. Best not to push!

Is there anyone at your company, male or female, who’s up to the challenge? Or maybe you fancy having a go yourself. If you think you could compete at the dead lift, the sack carry (a bit like the Atlas stones on Britain’s Strongest Man) and the truck pull, contact the organisers now and get your name down.

The idea of the Strongest Removalist contest is to get publicity for the industry, but the show organisers can only approach the media and invite them to attend and report on the event if they have plenty of entries. So remember, in this case, it really is about taking part and not about winning!
