We are looking to share removal charges for a trip between the UK and The French Alps. Does anyone have any experience with a similar arrangement or is in fact interested in joining up with us? We intend to book a respectable Southern removal company to ship our household goods from the London area to the Haute Savoie mid-August and would offer another party the return leg from there to the UK . By directly sharing the trip, both parties would profit from much lower individual charges. We will use space equivalent to 1,000 cubic feet = 28 cubic metres = 2,500 kg, which is a normal load for a 7,5 tonne lorry. That’s roughly a 2/3-bedroom family removal with a reasonable assortment of (flat-packed) furniture. If interested, please get in touch via email; we could then sort through the details personally. Thanks

Our hot water is scaldingly hot. Dangerously hot. Our plumber/electrician who installed the system says it is the law that the water has to be so hot. He says he can install a system whereby the temp. of the hot water is lowered by being mixed with cold water as it comes out of the hot water tank ..... but what sense is there in that? Why should I waste money over-heating the water only to have it cooled straight away? Suggestions anyone? What are the regulations? Ideas gratefully received before I burn myself again! Thanks

I am considering buying a heated towel rail from Brico Depot, but as I have bought from them in the past, I am aware that they can be a bit flaky. Anyone bought one before, and able to recommend/warn me about their products? I am going for the larger type at around 190 euros, and as i need 4 its quite a spend. Thanks for any advice given.

Does anyone know of a place where I could hire an air compressor for a render gun? I need one that will provide 35cfm at 50psi so a 230v powered compressor would not be suitable. I would probably need the smallest diesel powered tow along type. I live in 74 near Annecy. Thanks

The past two nights I have been woken up by a shuffling noises in the garage/loft, so something is in the eves of the house, any ideas what it could be? Mice, Rats, read online it could even be a Squirrel. Had a quick look in Leroy Merlin at rat killer, if its needed but I'm not wanting a stench from decompossing little rats. Any advice much appreciated.
