Pick up a few boxes of tiles, the customer says, and send some strong boys, you boys from Man and Van Bedford will be earning your supper today. He wasn’t wrong!
It is quite amazing just how heavy a box of floor tiles are. A seemingly small cardboard box, when lifted, seems to be made of solid steel. The few boxes of tiles ended up being a pallet load of tiles. To say that the waist-lines of the Man and Van Bedford staff were shortened by the copious amount of sweat would not be an exaggeration. The portly driver was turned into a size zero model by the effort in moving these tiles. As always man and Van Bedford rose (and then fell over) to the occasion.
