Each month in the Resolve Newsletter we will be showcasing either a client’s company or a company that we work with on a regular basis. If the lockdown has taught us anything it is that we need to support small businesses and so we thought we could do this by showcasing a different company each month. This month we caught up with Daniel Pledger from Plain Sailing Removals who helps people at the very stressful time of moving home. They also offer office removal and courier services.
