Simmy's Removals

Postby Jazza » Mon Jul 02, 2007 12:51 pm

Anyone seen the hand painted signs? Everywhere I go now I see this one man guerrilla advertising campaign.

Parkhead - near the forge retail park
Anniesland - near the dump
Maryhill/Springburn

He is a talented PR / Marketing Guru, and clearly wasted in the removals game.

Anyone else seen them? ::):

He has wee postcards posted up on close walls too. The mystery is - has anyone ever hired him?!

"I think Simmy's Removals (signs all over the East End) are about £100 for a full flat, and a lot less for one or 2 rooms"

I saw one just off Duke Street today.

Was going for the train and didn't have time to take a photo and don't think I'll be up that way again.
