As you know we love to celebrate the hire industry, especially when something great has been achieved. This is why we were eager to share the news of wedding hire firm, L & J Formal Hire, having this week won the North West Award for the second year in a row. Recognised for their incredible attitude towards standard of service and customer satisfaction it appears the accreditation is somewhat deserved.
With a mission to streamline the wedding planning process the firm offer consultation, measuring, fitting and delivery services to happy couples across the Middlewich area, with owner, Colin, very excited by their second award ceremony triumph.
“We weren’t expecting to win, we just went to have a good time and dress up – something we don’t usually get to do as we are too busy helping set other people up for dos!
“Last year I was gobsmacked, this year we are pleasantly surprised and a little bit in shock. It was a good night as well, we met other companies in the same industry, old friends and new.
“There were other companies on the same table who had been through their categories and not won, so when our name was called they jumped out of their seats and started clapping.
“Middlewich is on the map again”
With votes in the hands of brides and grooms the nominations therefore come from the people that matter, having experienced the service themselves and qualified to make comment. With so many award ceremonies simply used for promotional purposes it is nice to see the hire industry being recognised for the service they provide to brides and grooms.
“The voting is based on quality of service, price and customer relationship, so we must be doing something right.
“We are quite a lot cheaper than a lot of other companies, and if customers want to see us they make an appointment and it’s not like an open shop. It’s all personal.
“The award has given us a bit of recognition. We have been running for 20 years, and a couple of times we have bene nominated but not got into the final. Suddenly we have got there.
“I have met brides and grooms who have seen last year’s award in the Guardian and said congratulations. It definitely helps, and puts the icing on the cake.”
At Anything For Hire we would like to congratulate Colin and his team on this win!
