Office Clearance, Glasgow City Centre

Case Study: Office Clearance, Glasgow City Centre

Client name: Shelter Scotland
Business Sector: Charity
Website: http://scotland.shelter.org.uk/
Location: Glasgow

Requirements

We recently completed a clearance for a charity who were moving office. They required a large amount of office furniture to be recycled which was no longer required or being taken to their new premises. They were under time constraints due to their current lease expiring and needed to co-ordinate this with the move into the new premises.

 
 

Project Details

The property was situated on the first floor of a building on Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow city centre at an incredibly busy junction. Even had they wanted to, there was no availability for a skip. Due to the volume of on street traffic we were only able to have two trucks in situ at any given time. We were able to get a parking exemption from Glasgow City Council which allowed the job to proceed in a timely manner.

We removed a full range of redundant office furniture from the building including desks, office chairs, lockers, cabinets, computer equipment, tables and chairs and waste electrical appliances including fridges. We had 5 staff operating inside the building preparing the clearance as well as a further two drivers insuring the trucks were where they had to be at all times.

The clearance was completed over three days and a number of the items were able to be reused or recycled. Over 90% of everything removed from the building avoided landfill and was recycled. These clearances can often be challenging because of other businesses still operating within the building at the same time as well as our clients looking for a seamless move. We were in and out within our estimated timescale and the move completed successfully. We were also then required to remove packaging and cardboard left over from the install at their new premises.

    Hi I had my garage cleared yesterday & I wanted to compliment the two young men who did an amazing job. They were punctual, polite, efficient & got the job done quickly. They also handled neighbours with courtesy. I would recommend your company to friends & family. Thank you very much for a great job.

    Ross and all the guys at Junk It offer a brilliant efficient and hassle free uplift service. I’ve used Junk It a few times to clear out offices of old furniture etc and they never disappoint. It’s great to know that most of the stuff they take away is re-used or recycled too. Don’t just chuck it – Junk It

    We have used Junk It on a number of occasions to carry out waste removal services. I can honestly say that the way in which the company operates, their fast response times, and overall methods are fantastic. It also gives us great peace of mind that we are dealing with a company who are totally up to date with SEPA and other environmental legislation, as we have come across many other waste management companies who are not fully aware of these issues. I would happily recommend Junk It to any other organisation.
