A building society’s refurbishment project involved us storing £2.4million of furniture, to deliver to 120 branches, using our on-demand furniture delivery - much quicker than their typical lead time of 14 weeks. In fact, 14 weeks quicker!

To help our Building Society customer refurbish their 120 branches, we ran a comprehensive furniture storage programme - enabling them to enjoy on-demand furniture delivery. This made it super-easy for them to plan and prepare, safe in the knowledge the right furniture would get to the right place at exactly the right time.

We stored 3,300 items of their furniture stock - worth over £2.4million – containing everything from small wooden clocks to large bookcases.

We had to deliver them to every branch – to remote, rural ones; inner-city locations; and their large regional hubs. Then, there was lots of wrapping, assembling and careful positioning so they were ready for use.

There were the usual challenges of projects like this – sites running behind schedule, working safely around active trades on site, last-minute changes, etc. But this project involved so much more...

...Like, managing numerous furniture and stock suppliers to ensure on-time delivery

And working closely with all the ‘refurb contractors’, project managers, site managers, site clearers and office cleaners, to ensure the furniture arrived at exactly the right time ready for the branch to be reopened.

And, every single piece of furniture – all thousands of them – did arrive at exactly the right time, in the right condition. Happy customer. Happy days.
