Choosing a Removals and Storage Container Company


Amit Sachdeva

Removals and Storage is what many people, especially home owners, need. They are the perfect place to store all items that are rarely used. There are some providers who offer storing at a monthly fee. When using this service, it is your responsibility to store or remove any item that you may need.

There are a number of things you need to consider before going for this storage. The first one is security. Once you have packed your personal item, the providers will come and take it to a secure place. The location needs to be well lit, securely fenced and have a surveillance camera which records all activities that are going on.

Looking at the maintenance, the surrounding should be in good condition, and storing should be clean and well maintained. The drive way and drainage should be in good order. A well-constructed drive way will be dust free and will keep the containers clean and in good shape. A neatly mowed and clean compound indicates that the company is aiming at making a good impression to its customers.

Customer services are another important issue. The company needs to look into the needs of all its customers. The experts should guide you when it comes to choosing a container, and will answer all the questions you may be having. They will are expected to explain to you how the storing works and how payments need to be made.

An efficient company should be well managed and keep time. This way, all the storing will be picked on time and taken away. The materials the Self Storage are made from are durable and will stay in good condition for a long time. The need to be water resistant and you can get one that is specifically designed for the items you are planning to store.

Looking at the cost, a good one must be affordable and at the same time provide good services. There are different storing companies, and by doing some searching and comparisons, there is a high chance of getting one that is easy to pay for. The transportation service and storing will all be done in one day, and payments are usually made after a few weeks.

Because there are different sizes, you can store any item that you may have. There are some which have features that ensure the items are in good condition, no matter how long you store them. For this reason, you can give the experts your details and they will provide you with a storing that meets your requirements.

Storage Container firms which provide their door to door services are preferred by several people. There are some other companies which use it too. Once all the items have been carefully packed, the containers will be taken away, and you are allowed to remove or pack other items any day.

Explosion at earthquake-damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant

Explosion at earthquake-damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant

Saturday, March 12, 2011

An explosion has been reported at Japan’s stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant after its cooling system was damaged by a massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake that hit off the North-East coast of Japan on Friday. The explosion occurred at around 3:00pm local time (6:00am UTC). According to the plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, four workers were injured in the explosion.

The explosion occurred as workers were attempting to cool a reactor by injecting water into its core. Local media are reporting that the plant’s exterior walls have been destroyed and only a skeleton structure remains.

More than 45,000 residents within a 10-kilometre radius of the plant have been evacuated.

Television reports show white smoke coming from the plant. Local authorities are warning residents in the vicinity of the plant to stay indoors, turn off air-conditioners and not to drink tap water. According to Japan’s nuclear agency, radioactive caesium and iodine has been identified at the plant. Authorities speculate that this indicates that containers holding uranium fuel at the site may have ruptured and are leaking.

Wikinews Shorts: March 11, 2012

Wikinews Shorts: March 11, 2012

A compilation of brief news reports for Sunday, March 11, 2012.


  • 1 Arrests, disruptions in run-up to Bangladesh National Party rally
  • 2 Tanker grounds off Sicily
  • 3 UK actress’s brother charged with her murder
 Contribute to Wikinews by expanding these briefs or add a new one.

The Bangladesh National Party (BNP), the national opposition, claims mass arrests of hundreds or even thousands of people across the state are aimed at thwarting a BNP rally tomorrow. The protest in the capital, Dhaka, is also hampered by hotels declining bookings and travel services shutting down.

The BNP hopes to oust the government and wants a return to elections under a neutral caretaker, which was ended by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s regime. The Dhaka Metropolitan Police respond that the arrests in the city aim to crack down on extortion, and illegal drugs and weapons. A spokesman said the timing was as much to do with an upcoming government rally and the Asia Cup as the BNP event.


The Italian cargo tanker Gelso M hit rocks off the coast of Sicily near Syracuse in poor weather yesterday. Surrounding reefs meant rescue boats could not approach and lifeboats not be launched when the captain ordered the ship abandoned; four helicopters carried the nineteen aboard to safety.

The weather is considered a likely factor for the accident. The engine room has flooded but a double hull is considered likely to prevent pollution.


The brother of an actress who once starred in UK soap EastEnders has been charged with her murder. Tony McCluskie, 35, was arrested after the Metropolitan Police pulled 29-year-old Gemma McCluskie’s torso from a London canal.

Searches continue for the rest of Gemma’s remains. Tony remains in custody and is due to appear before Thames Magistrates’ Court.

Full Time Rv\’er Climbs Into Some Fifth Wheel Travel Trailers

Published on October 19th, 2016.

Full-time Rv\’er Climbs Into Some Fifth Wheel Travel Trailers



\” Fivers\”, \”Fifth Wheels\” and \”Fifth Wheel Trailers\” are all terms that make reference to a single type of recreational vehicle. The comes from the design and means of hitching the trailer to the truck.

The hitch is placed in the tow vehicle base pretty much directly over the tow vehicle\’s rear axle. This provides a good deal of stability and towability to the trailer. Since the hitch is mounted over the rear axle of the tow vehicle, a pick up truck or medium duty truck is used to do the towing.

Fifth wheel rvs generally vary in length from about 20 feet to atleast 40 feet long with the bigger designs transforming into a real dwelling when they\’re completely set up for camping out.

These rvs are almost always constructed with a cut out section in-front to allow the hitch pin to extend over the tow vehicle bed to get to the hitch. This extended area used for the main bedroom though several have placed a living room area in this spot.

The full profile fifth wheel rv includes everything you will need in adwelling. Fullsize recliners and loveseat and also a big screen tv and entertainment center are part of the living room area optons. Bigger designs have a computer desk and sometimes a fireplace.

The \”galley\” will have a refrigerator-freezer combo, a range with oven and a microwave stove to take care of the meal preparation. Upscale rvs have solid surface counters as well as other luxury touches to rival the finest kitchen seen in any home.

Bathrooms also range from the basic to the sumptuous. Glass walled walk in showers aren\’t unusual in the bigger units.

The upper level bedroom may have a queen or king-size bed put in a slide-out with storage beneath the bed. Bigger trailers have a cabinet and larger closet across the very front of the trailer.

Heating is done using a gas forced air heater ducted through the entire living area. A roof mounted air conditioner will keep the interior cool during the hotter days.

One common aspect of this style of rv is the sufficient storage area both within and under the living room. Most current include a ample \”basement\” storage space in the forward section of the rv. This enables for inclusion of all the things that make a fifth wheel home while away from home base.

The current fifth wheel trailers offer the best in travel trailer living. They have the best living space, easy towing, and cost-effective price points for the full time rv\’er.

“Civil defence” thwarts Israeli air strike on Gaza refugee camp

“Civil defence” thwarts Israeli air strike on Gaza refugee camp

Published on October 19th, 2016.

Sunday, November 19, 2006

Led by Nizar Rayan, a senior Hamas fighter, hundreds of Palestinian refugees gathered to protect the house of the leader of a militant group in Jabaliya refugee camp in Gaza and succeeded in thwarting an Israeli attack.

As part of their campaign against Palestinian fighters, Israeli forces had warned Mohammedweil Baroud, a commander in the Popular Resistance Committee, that his house would be attacked in 30 minutes time. He was told to take his family out of the house in order to avoid civilian casualties. Instead, he called for help from the local mosque and people swarmed round and over Mr Baroud’s house in such numbers as to dissuade the Israelis from making the promised attack.

The Palestinians claimed this to have been the first successful defence of its kind. Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, visiting the house, said that people had been driven to this remedy because the UN had refused to defend them. On Friday, the Security Council vetoed a resolution condemning Israeli military action in Gaza. Nizar Rayan promised “We will pay with our lives to protect the houses of the fighters, so they can resist the enemy, assured their homes are being protected”.

On November 8, an Israeli shell killed 19 civilians in Beit Hanoun, due to, what the Israelis called, a “technical fault in targeting”.

An Israeli spokesman said that Israeli forces differentiate between innocent people and “terrorists” and that they would continue the attacks.

A Palestinian rocket killed an Israeli woman and seriously wounded a man in the town of Sderot on November 15. Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president has called for a ceasefire by those launching rockets and suicide attacks against Israel and the Palestinian group Islamic Jihad is said to be considering this request carefully. Over 400 Palestinians, including many civilians, have been killed since June by attacks, which Israel says are aimed at Palestinian fighters.

Glasgow cannabis enthusiasts celebrate ‘green’ on city green

Glasgow cannabis enthusiasts celebrate ‘green’ on city green

Published on October 18th, 2016.

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Coinciding with Easter Sunday, Glasgow Cannabis Social Club’s annual 420 event was held on Glasgow Green, under sunny blue skies, and overlooking the river Clyde. Despite the city’s council attempting to revoke permission for the gathering at the last minute, police were happy for it to go-ahead with approximately a dozen officers attending in high-visibility vests.

The Daily Record reported five arrests were made for minor offences, likely smoking and possession of small quantities of cannabis. Taking a less-sensational — and more accurate — line of reporting, the Monday edition of Glasgow’s Evening News stated five were referred to the Procurator Fiscal who is responsible for deciding if charges should be brought.

Official figures provided by the police were that 150 attended. With people coming and going, Wikinews reporters estimated upwards of 200 attended, compared to nearly 700 who had signed up for the event on Facebook. Hemp goods were advertised and on sale at the event, and some attendees were seen drinking cannabis-themed energy drinks.

“I was searched and charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act (which is a lot of bollocks)” one attendee noted online, adding “not fair to happen on a brilliant day like it was, other than that I had a great day!” A second said they were openly smoking and ignored by police, who “were only really focusing on people who looked particularly young”.

Cannabis seeds were openly and legally sold at the event and a hydroponics supplier brought a motortrike towing an advertising trailer. Actually growing cannabis is, however, illegal in the UK.

With the event openly advocating the legalisation of cannabis, speakers put their arguments for this to a receptive crowd. Retired police officer James Duffy, of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, spoke of the failed United States alcohol prohibition policy; stressing such policies needlessly bring people into contact with criminal elements. Highlighting other countries where legalisation has been implemented, he pointed out such led to lower crime, and lower drug use overall.

One speaker, who produced a bottle of cannabis oil he had received through the post, asserted this cured his prostate cancer. Others highlighted the current use of Sativex by the National Health Service, with a cost in-excess of £150 for a single bottle of GW Pharmaceuticals patented spray — as-compared to the oil shown to the crowd, with a manufacturing cost of approximately £10.

Similar ‘420’ pro-cannabis events were held globally.

The Best Way To Avoid The Dollar Crisis}

Published on September 21st, 2016.

Submitted by: Jeff D. Opdyke

The great gold exodus continues.

Even as the pundits continue to claim golds day in the sun is done, countries continue to call their gold home. For February, the Federal Reserve reported that another 13 tons left its vault. That comes after 27 tons exited in January. In all, gold has fled the Fed in two of the last four months (and in the other two months, nothing changed).

And what all of this says is that the central bankers of the world absent the gold-abhorring Federal Reserve, of course are worried about the future. You should be, too because the world is making very clear the fact that you should be buying gold right now.

Earlier this year, I reported on countries such as France, Belgium, Austria, Ecuador, Finland, Switzerland, Venezuela, Romania and Poland that are either talking about repatriating national gold or have already done so. In addition, Turkey recently reported that it exported 13.5 tons of gold bars to the U.K. in January and February, while the Swiss imported $2 billion in Turkish gold during the same time period.

In most cases, they say nothing of their motivation. But in some instances, as with the Dutch, there are overarching concerns that the U.S. and the United Kingdom where the Dutch keep much of their gold face a financial crisis and that in such a crisis the U.S, in particular, might not be so eager to return the gold quickly.

It is no longer wise, the Dutch said publicly, to keep half of our gold in one part of the world.

In short, all these countries suddenly repatriating gold from American vaults is a physical manifestation of the greatest threat to the world today: a dollar-centric global financial system that has the structural integrity of a sand castle and the tides moving quickly. Better to have your stockpile of gold back on home turf than secreted away inside the very country that will be the eye of the coming storm.

The Dominoes Are Set

I understand the tired arguments insisting that dollar hegemony will remain. But those arguments are blind to the dots that are connecting. I told you Wednesday about Chinas efforts to build new iterations of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, and how, with the new version of the World Bank, China is attracting scads of U.S. allies.

Those arguments are also blind to the fear that is clear inside U.S. government. Those at the highest levels of government and monetary authority realize that the King Dollar faces serious existential risks with the power to dethrone the greenback, throwing America into disarray, since the lifestyle we have come to know here at home is entirely dependent upon the worlds demand for dollars in global trade.

When that goes away and I guarantee with 100% assurance that day is coming a currency crisis like the world has never seen will rip through your life with the ferocity of a lion taking down a gazelle. In fact, if youre not prepared for that day, you might come to wish you were that gazelle.

This crisis is exactly what central bankers around the world are guarding against in repatriating their gold.

In a dollar crisis, gold is the invisible shield keeping the slings and arrows from killing you. Your dollars will get crushed. Your dollar-based assets will get crushed. Your cost of living will soar since so much of what we buy today is made overseas.

But as the dollar collapses, gold will soar. More important is the great likelihood that to rectify the problem the Federal Reserve will revalue the dollar relative to gold, putting America on a modified gold standard.

To narrow-minded Keynesians who look upon gold as a barbarous relic, the idea of any kind of gold standard is laughable and anger-inducing. But the solution to every previous currency crisis has involved gold in some fashion. And even in modern times, nothing is ever really different and it will be no different this time.

The One Global Insurance Policy

As I routinely write, gold is the only insurance policy that will protect your lifestyle from the fiscal reckonings that are necessary to right the Keynesian-inspired, debt-fueled wrongs that have brought the world to this point.

Its impossible to know when the reckoning will happen. Its only possible to know that it will happen. It has to happen. Nothing that any Western central banker, monetary official or politician can do will prevent the reckoning. They can delay but they cannot avoid.

So take your clue from all those countries recalling their gold. They are preparing for the storm ahead. You must, too, if you hope to protect your lifestyle and your assets.

Thats why Im telling you: Buy gold now.

Until next time, stay Sovereign

Thousands of jobs to go at Corus

Thousands of jobs to go at Corus

Published on September 21st, 2016.

Sunday, January 25, 2009

International steel conglomerate Corus Group is to axe 3,500 jobs worldwide.

Up to 2,000 jobs are to be lost in the former British Steel plants in the United Kingdom. Owner Tata Steel employs 42,000 people worldwide, with 24,000 being in the UK. Corus did not comment on the report so far, but a union official told BBC News that the company would be making an announcement at 0930 UTC on Monday. The cuts would be part of long term restructuring plans made by soon to depart CEO Philippe Varin, which have been accelerated by the worldwide downturn.

Tata Steel’s sister company Tata Motors is said by The Sunday Times to be considering 1,500 job losses at the UK’s Jaguar Land Rover car manufacturer. It is not thought that any Corus plants in the UK will close outright.

Corus was formed from the merger of British Steel and the Dutch steelmaker Hoogovens, creating the ninth largest steel company in the world and the second largest in the European Union. The merger was uncomfortable and the company suffered severe financial problems in 2003. It later recovered and was bought by India’s Tata two years ago.
