Sarah works at an events company, creating exhibitions and conferences for huge corporate clients. She’s been relying on us for several years now.
‘The feedback I get about Connection Crew is that they get the job done,’ she says. ‘In our work, there are so many things that can go wrong. But with them, if a truck is late or the access isn’t right, there’s no moaning. They come up with solutions.’
Sarah says we’ve helped her out of a few sticky situations – and one in particular comes to mind:
‘We were doing a big show at St Helen’s in the Undershaft. We had to build an agora, a bit like an amphitheatre, and we had an 18 tonne truck with all the kit coming down the M25. Connection Crew were there at 6pm, ready for the truck to arrive – but then we had a call saying that a glue lorry had overturned on the motorway and that our truck couldn’t get through!
One option was for our guys to do the build alone, early next morning. But there was some really heavy lifting to do, taking huge staging panels up the stairs. And it would have been too physically demanding, and not good for health and safety. Instead, Connection Crew agreed to come back at 11pm, to help get the build done overnight. And they’re always like that – really helpful and flexible.’
