holbeck-leedsSpecialised Movers were contracted to move the call centre staff while refurbishment took place, and were a stakeholder in planning and methodology, attending 4 meetings prior to the move and contributing/delivering a timescale delivery.

Specialised Movers were to decommission over 100 IT units each phase, packed and wheeled to stand-down area on site. Redundant desks (on average 100+ each phase) were removed and loaded into Articulated Vehicles. These desks were recycled to accredited REY standards, and over 400 donated to local charities. We then uplifted 450+ carpet tiles for subsequent refurb. Unfortunately the furniture fitters could not re-build enough desks in the short time allowed, so our own moving operatives helped build the desks meet project timescales. We then returned PCs, unpacked and placed to desks.

Carillion project managers had nothing but praise for Specialised Movers’ aptitude and for “going the extra mile” throughout all phases. The Arlington Business Centre managed to remain open throughout the fit-out due to our twilight working system. High risk analysis was diluted due to out-of-hours working, although sterile traffic areas remained

Specialised Movers utilised over 20 staff through out the project working in tandem behind all the other trades on site, and security was paramount due to the nature of call centre work, with frequent ID inspections and spot checks.

Our scope of the commission was the highlight of the refurbishment process. The Regional Manager for the centre was delighted with our professional conduct and compliments were received at the post move meeting.

Specialised Movers have since returned to site and continue to service the contract. Yet again testimony to our continued work ethic and principles, proving that we are constant leaders in the commercial moving group.
