Panic move for family

We were contacted a few hours ago about a family that were evicted from their home yesterday, who have been offered a new place to live, but they need to move today.  Our agent managed to convince the landlord to allow them to stay last night so at least they weren't out on the streets.  She found a 3.5 tonne Luton Van with a driver to shift the furniture and belongings and rounded up some volunteers to help them pack up and shift everything at the other end.  The trouble she had though was that the family, which includes 4 children, are in receipt of Universal Credit and do not have the money to be able to pay for the move.  This is where we came in and we paid the removal costs of just under £100, which included insurance as well.  We were able to respond to and have this situation resolved from start to finish in under 3 hours, we would have been faster but our agent had to be present at a PIP assessment with someone else she was helping.
