A Christmas Message From
The National Guild of Removers and Storers*
santa salt

Well it's that time of year again when ex members of the litigious NGRS wait to see if Santa brings them their seasonal pre-action letters threatening court action if they don't agree to give gifts of money to the profit motivated owners of the notorious Trade Organisation.

*For the avoidance of doubt it should be noted that this isn't really a Christmas message from the NGRS and the above picture has been photoshopped ie it is not a real picture of NGRS founder, Geoff Salt, wearing a Santa hat. It should also be noted that to my knowledge Mr Salt has never wished anybody (let alone ex members of the NGRS) a 'Merry Christmas' and I therefore apologise to him if this sentiment causes him any embarrassment. However, in a moment of rage outside a court house he did act extremely agressively and told an ex NGRS member that he would have his F*****g house as well as calling him a piece of S**t!

The owner of this website would like to wish everybody a Merry Christmas. And to the many members who contacted me this year asking for advice on how to leave the Guild without getting sued in the process, I hope your wishes for an NGRS FREE New Year come true.

Note to NGRS: Please email all spurious threats of legal action to the usual address.

Removal Industry Ombudsman Scheme (RIOS)

Are customers of the removal industry really protected by the RIOS or does the name simply mislead and confuse them instead? And if the Ombudsman is truly independent why does the co-founder of the only organisation it oversees sit on the Board and why was solicitor Andrew Coyle ever a past secretary?

An Open Letter to the NGRS

I contacted the litigious Guild and informed them that unless they would give me a timescale for serving the Particulars of Claim for their spurious action against me then I would publish an open letter (copy supplied to them). Their response was laughable! They stated they were not obligated to even serve a claim and that if they decided to it didn't have to be served until a year after the date of the last publication ....

Yet more action by the Guild!!!

On 23rd December 2015 I, along with ex-members of the National Guild of Removers and Storers, received a Pre-action letter for Defamation. Mine related to the alleged publication of Brian Clarke's letter and this website (which has been online for several years). The NGRS Pre-action letter was 7 pages long (11 with attachments), full of rhetoric & factual inaccuracies (I wouldn't expect anything else), demanded money (naturally) and was demonstrably timed to ruin my Christmas...Click here to read the first installment on the latest (correct at time of publication) NGRS litigation.

Famous Removal industry quotes:

"we (the NGRS) are an honourable and extremely fair organisation that only litigates as a last resort" - Jon Martin, Members secretary of the litigious NGRS.

This action is "wholly unmeritorious" - Judge's comments regarding NGRS legal action.

"Manifestly defective" - Master Yoxall's description of a Court application made by the Guild.

"F#ck off. You know what? I'm going to own your house...because you're a piece of sh#t"- Geoff Salt, NGRS founder (I wouldn't want to live next door to him!)

About This website

This website is here to provide moral support for the hard working honest members of the removal industry, many of whom are facing legal action from the NGRS.

For the avoidance of doubt I am not offering legal advice. I do not have any legal qualifications nor do I have any legal training.

For some time now many ex Guild members have been receiving letters threatening legal action for offences such as Copyright Infringement, Trademark Violation and Defamation. Demands for recompense often run into tens of thousands of pounds. Whilst such actions would be extremely worrying at the best of times, in the current economic climate it is quite literally wrecking lives and forcing businesses to close down.

Many of those removers were unaware that others were in the same situation until recent events culminated in the Deputy Business Editor of The Times newspaper writing a full page article on the matter. The purpose of this website is to ensure that anybody in danger of having legal action brought against them by the NGRS has access to that article and to encourage them to seek formal legal advice AND contact those other removers in a similar situation

Mr Jon Martin, membership secretary of the NGRS, was invited to respond/comment on this website prior to publication. In his reply he stated that 'almost everything on this website is inaccurate and factually incorrect (including the statements in The Times Article)'. He further stated that some ex members of the guild were involved in a 'malicious campaign to cause the Guild financial and reputational damage'. He then accused me of assisting those ex members and implied that action would be taken against me if I were to publish this website.

To make contact with other removers simply go my links page or contact me and I will put you in touch with an ex-Guild member .
