Ease The Squeeze manager celebrates 25 years’ service

Ease The Squeeze’s Brighton Self Store Manager, Bob Baines, is celebrating his 25th year within the Bishop’s Move Group.

Ease The Squeeze’s Brighton Self Store Manager, Bob Baines, is celebrating his 25th year within the Bishop’s Move Group.Bob originally started working for the company in 1977 as a non-HGV driver and porter at the Brighton depot, before gaining his HGV licence and later becoming general foreman.

In 2003, after taking a short break, he returned to take up the new challenge of running Bishop’s self storage depot in Preston Park, Brighton, even getting involved at the weekends to develop the site building from a conventional storage facility to the modern state of the art operation which later became Ease The Squeeze Brighton.

Bob said, “Having the knowledge of the removal trade behind me is always beneficial when dealing with customers who require storage, particularly in advising customers on the correct size storage unit when moving in.”

“I recall one of our customers, a married couple, who rented a storage unit for three months and never once put anything in it as they were waiting to move, but it never materialised. They used to come in once a month to view the unit, asking if they could bring in sandwiches and sit inside the unit when visiting – it’s all just part of the customer service and at least they gained some kind of use from the unit.”

Al Bingle, Bishop’s Move’s Managing Director said, “We would like to thank Bob Baines for his dedication and loyalty to the company and we wish him continued success for the future.”
