Truck named Andrew

'Andrew', the first fully branded new vehicle bought since Turks' aquisition by T Bourne & Son Ltd.

Turks Moving (Part of the T. Bourne & Son Ltd group of companies) has named its  new truck ‘Andrew’ after previous Turks owner and Turks/Bournes Removals Domestic Manager Andrew Bourne, who was tragically killed in a car accident in October 2010. Andrew was the cousin of Eric Bourne (MD) and Roy Bourne (Company Secretary).

Turks Moving, which was at that time owned by another local mover following previous sale by Andrew’s family, was acquired by the T.Bourne& Son Ltd group of companies (which also includes Bournes Removals and Rye Auction Galleries) in 2009 following Andrew’s joining the Bournes team as domestic manager.

Turks continued to operate as an independent brand maintaining its customer base in Kent and continuing to provide the friendly, local, professional removals service the company had built its reputation on.

Both Bournes and Turks teams were shocked and saddened to lose Andrew last year and wanted to do something to remember him by, but also to mark in some way Andrew’s contribution to the Turks business and his continuous hard work, passion and commitment for ensuring this brand lived on beyond its incorporation within the group.

They decided to do this by naming the first fully branded new vehicle since the company’s acquisition after Andrew and including his name in the cab’s livery. Many of the company’s employees and Andrew’s friends and family attended attend a memorial cricket game at the end of July. Andrew was a keen cricket player and was planning his return to the game following injury. His family arranged the memorial game in his honour.
