We’ve held the industry recognised standard BSEN 12522 for over 20 years. It’s the first and only standard of its type, aimed at removals for the gain of the private individual. We assess our staff, administration and procedures frequently and rigourously to ensure we continue to match, if not exceed, all the standards expected of us.
Brussels is the capital city of Belgium, located in the central portion of the country and is a part of both the French Community and the Flemish Community of Belgium. It is the most densely populated and richest region in the country, in terms of GDP per capita, and is best known for its cuisine and gastronomy, as well as its historical landmarks and it is recognised as the capital of the ‘comic strip’. The origin of the name Brussels comes from the Old Dutch for ‘marsh’- Broeksel, and all the names of the municipalities in the region are also of Dutch origin except one. The first known traces of human settlement in the Brussels area go as far back as the Stone Age, and during the Middle Ages it became an important centre in the textile trade, with routes through to Bruges, Ghent and Cologne. Many important buildings were constructed during the 19th century, including the Stock Exchange in 1873, the Palace of Justice in 1883 and the Royal Church in 1885. The city is located 28 miles south of Antwerp (Flanders), and 60 miles from Bruges. Brussels experiences an oceanic climate, and its proximity to coastal areas influences the humidity and temperature. On average, there are 200 days of rain per year, one of the highest totals for any capital, and snowfall is infrequent. There are 19 municipalities within the Brussels-Capital region, and Belgium itself has 2,739. Since World War II, Brussels has been the administrative centre for many international bodies and organisations. The EU and NATO both have their main institutions in the city and is the third largest convention centre in the world. There are more ambassadors and journalists in Brussels than in Washington DC. The architecture is diverse, spanning the Gothic, Baroque and Louis XIV influence on the Grand Place, and postmodern buildings like the EU institutions. The Grand Place is the main attraction in the city centre, and since 1998 has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Brussels is twinned with many popular cities all around the world, including Berlin in Germany, Beijing in the People’s Republic of China, Madrid in Spain, Montreal in Canada, Moscow in Russia and Washington DC in the United States. As of 2016, Brussels was ranked the 12th largest capital city in the EU.
Audrey Hepburn, the famous actress and fashion icon, was born in Brussels in 1929. There is a plaque outside her house at Rue Keyenveld 48 in Ixelles, which is off the tourist radar and is a must visit when in the area. Opened in 1847, the Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, in the centre of Brussels, is one of the oldest shopping arcades in Europe. It is one of the most visited spots in the city, and you can find department stores, independent shops and boutiques. Brussels has 138 restaurants per square mile, ranging from cheap eats to healthy options. The city is best known for its local waffle, its chocolate, its fries and numerous types of beer. Most ‘foodies’ travel to Belgium to experience the cuisine and partake in various food tours, brewery experiences and tastings. Until 2014, Nemo 33 was the deepest indoor swimming pool in the world, popular with scuba divers and swimmers, reaching 35 metres in depth. It contains 2.7 million litres of non-chlorinated, filtered spring water. Belgium itself is home to many famous comic artists, and the city pays tribute to the likes of Tin Tin, Lucky Luke, Gaston etc, all of which originated in the country. 50 colourful murals can be found around the Comic Strip Route in the city. The Brussels’ International Airport is the largest chocolate selling point in the world, with millions of visitors each year buying some last-minute goods before returning home. Brussel sprouts have been grown in Belgium for over 700 years but were first introduced in Britain under 200 years ago. They are now an important component of most roast dinners and Christmas meals.
