Specialist Crate Hire Service for London Office Removals

There are many reasons why companies move to new premises. Some businesses need to relocate to maximise passing traffic to a central location in the city. Others are feeling the pinch of rising energy costs and business rates, so it’s necessary to downsize and reduce all outgoings. However, it’s not as simple as packing everything up and heading to a new building – there’s a lot to consider.

It can be a logistical nightmare to organise an office move. The main thing to remember is to find a professional moving company that safeguards your office and work equipment. Business owners can now utilise our Crate Hire service, in addition to getting the Safe Removals team to pack. It’s part of our broad selection of specialist business and commercial removal services you won’t find anywhere else in the capital.

Reasons for Using a Specialist Business Removals Company

Moving to a new office or work premises can quickly fall into chaos. This is especially true for companies that try to perform a do-it-yourself relocation. Using cheap removal providers or trying to do this in-house results in breakages and delays. This might cost more money in the long run than using a reputable moving company.

Working with a professional removal company for your office relocations will reduce any issues with damage to property and unforeseen downtime. And by working with Safe Removals, they will have a team of experts to assist you with every stage. We can assign a move manager for more complicated jobs. They will oversee the relocation from planning to unpacking the last box in your new office or workplace.

It pays to work with London’s number one removals and storage company, and we cater to businesses from every sector. We’re known as the capital’s best office and commercial moving provider. We have an unbeatable range of business moving packages you won’t find anywhere else. And one of these specialist offers is a Crate Hire service.

How we Utilise Security Crates, Security Seals and Labelling

Our SC Security Crate is ideal for storage and removals. Perfect for books, desktop and ornamental objects, kitchen items and appliances and many more, the SC Security Crate can also hold up to ten lever arch files, making your filing and paperwork transportation a breeze.

SLS Security Seals can be used to ensure your items are transported safely and securely. These seals can be fitted to both sides of the crate to secure the lid shut and can be easily cut off after use. For added security, we also offer SLSN Numbered Security Seals, which provide a unique security number to each crate.

We supply low tack, easy peel labels that can be used for your crates, furniture and all other office and household items, perfect for organising your moves. Each label has a section to write on for easy allocation and distribution of your items, and we stock ten different colours: red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, dark blue, purple, pink, brown, and black.

Protect Sensitive IT Equipment with a Computer Crate

Safe Removals’ Lidded Computer Crates are perfectly designed to move and store IT equipment. With the capacity to comfortably hold a standard 21″ computer screen and any accessories such as keyboards, wires, and towers, our LCC Lidded Computer Crates are ideal for home and office moves.

Additionally, we recommend using a Computer Bag per screen and one extra bag for computer accessories. Bubble Roll can further be used to protect your equipment. To calculate the amount of Computer Crates required, you would need one per workstation and one per desktop printer.

Safe Removals provide a specialist IT Service that includes uninstallation, reinstallation, and full IT migration. Our team can handle any electronic equipment, and if necessary, we have partner companies if a White Glove service is needed for highly sensitive items.

There’s one thing you can be certain of – we know how to work with IT equipment. With no room for error or delay, we’ll coordinate and oversee your office’s entire relocation and transport. We’ll then have our IT guys hook everything up and have you up and running in record time.

Things to Consider Before Using a Crate Hire Service

Many companies choose to undertake the packing themselves. However, we can provide full packing and unpacking service options. Before anyone makes the decision, we’ll discuss this in detail with you and our assessment team. Once you have quotes for both, you’ll be able to make a decision that suits your budget and timeline.

Crates are on hire by the week and are delivered a couple of days in advance of the move for you to pack. The move takes place at the end of the week when you unpack, and then we will range to collect the crates. We will include additional charges in your quote if you need more time to pack/unpack.

As the crates are on hire, they must be accounted for upon collection. Any missing items will be subject to a replacement charge. Everything that is going in the crate should be labelled. For example, the person’s initials at the workstation or by the department. We also suggest making an inventory of each item, and we’ll gladly assist you.

Related Office and Business Packages are Available

As you might expect, our Crate Hire service is one of many packages we offer businesses in London. In addition to comprehensive IT migration, we also have various other services that should cover all your needs. And should there be something a bit out of the ordinary, you’ll find that we’re flexible and will go the extra mile to accommodate your specifications.

Here’s an overview of every office and commercial package in our range of services:

Office Removals we cater to companies of all sizes, from SMEs to multinational corporations. Our speciality is business continuation, meaning we’ll get you operational in no time.

Business Relocation – in addition to office moves, we can relocate any business, regardless of sector or the tools of the trade.

Commercial Storage – business owners and entrepreneurs trust us with their valuable assets. They know that we have the most secure storage facilities in Greater London, and they can access their units anytime during opening hours.

Employee Relocation – while other moving companies tend to see a company as one entity, we treat each employee with individual planning. That ensures every team member can be ready to begin work with minimal downtime.

Safe Relocation – here’s something we guarantee no one can match. Safe Removals are experts at, you guessed it, uninstalling, moving, transporting, and reinstalling safes. We can handle any heavy object up to two tons in weight.

Office Clearance – let’s face it, relocating tends to get messy, and it’s not the most appealing prospect. That’s why most of our clients hand this over to us to sort out, so they can get on with more essential duties.

Domestic Removals and Storage – we work with hundreds of people moving home in London. Similarly, we can also take care of their self storage needs, making the whole thing straightforward and stress-free.

European Removals – and for the lucky few who are relocating to Europe, you can rely on us to get you there without a hitch.

Safeguard Your Business’s Furniture and Equipment

In an ideal world, we would find a suitable workplace for our business, and that would be that. Back in the real world, it’s never this simple. Furthermore, the business world is fluid, and many companies are still trying to deal with issues from the pandemic. This brings about the reality of downsizing to reduce costs and have employees work remotely.

It pays to work with a professional moving company regardless of why you’re moving your business. And we always suggest getting a few quotes before making a decision. Moreover, you should do some research on each prospective company to see what their Google ratings are. We’re now fortunate enough to live in an era where every business has online reviews you can read.

By getting some quotations and looking into each company, you can balance the costs against service delivery. For example – if a company offers an absolute bargain but their online scores average three stars, you should keep looking. At Safe Removals, we have the perfect balance of affordability and the highest level of customer service for business removals in London.
