A point often forgotten when purchasing chairs is restoration, as few surviving examples would not have been repaired at some stage. When purchasing chairs, it is not unusual to spend more money with a good restorer than you actually paid for the article itself. The repair of a chair, the most used object in the home, is expensive when compared to, say, a chest of drawers. If restored properly, a chest of drawers may need serious attention only once every 50 or so years, where a set of chairs may need attention on a frequent basis. Sets of chairs that are let go for generations often need a lot of attention, even to a point of needing to be steamed apart and re-glued which takes time and patience. A single chair often consumes more time than for a dining table. Even now in our local area, it is not easy to find a competent tradesman to repair sets of chairs, as they all look upon them as 'charity' jobs.
When people enter the transport industry, often they do so because of some sort of inspiration. Many different figures from history or fiction have been involved in moving goods from place to place, and often with a very glamorous presentation of their trade. Is it any wonder so many feel like following in their footsteps when it comes to haulage work? Taking responsibility for making sure goods arrive safely up and down the country can be quite a challenge - but drivers all over the UK rise to it. One of the best-known truck drivers was a man named Lawrence Richard Walters, a humble truck driver from the USA who nevertheless became a minor celebrity in 1982.
