Education moves

Over the years, our success in handling moves for the education sector has helped us become the market leader in this field.

Our major involvement began in this area with the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme which was launched in 2004 by then Prime Minister Tony Blair. This had the aim of rebuilding or refurbishing every secondary school in England over a 15 to 20 year period.

Since taking part in the first BSF projects in the UK, we have now moved hundreds of schools, colleges, academies and universities. What’s more, we continue working with many of these educational establishments to this day, even though many of these organisations employed us initially for just a single move. This repeat business is largely down to our ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction and value for money.

This involvement in such a large number of education moves has given us the experience and expertise to deliver successful moves. We manage everything for our clients from planning, asset registering, managing contractors and managing tenders, to actually carrying out the physical move.

Above all, we provide the professionalism, service and support that enables our educational clients to stay focused on the important things, their pupils, during any removal process.
