Removals Standards

Since June 1999, we have held the coveted BSEN 12522, the first and only recognised quality standard specifically aimed at furniture removals for the benefit of the private individual. Certified companies operate to clearly defined standards and the procedures are designed to benefit you, the customer, at every stage of your move.

BS OHSAS 45001 is a framework for an occupational health and safety (ohs) management system and helps put in place the policies, procedures and controls needed for an organization to achieve the best possible working conditions and workplace health and safety, aligned to internationally recognized best practice.

The BS EN 14873 British standard for storage of furniture and personal effects for private individuals is your guarantee that Armishaws Removals’ systems, procedures, documentation and quality standards for storage has been assessed by an independent 3rd party and has reached the highest standards (certificate no. 060201).

We are assessed annually on staff, services, administration and procedures to ensure we continue to meet the high and exacting standards required.

Our Environmental and Carbon Responsibility

We have decided to act in regard to the environmental issues affecting our planet and work hard to be your environmentally friendly removals company. We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and have a number of programs in place to ensure that we are operating the best that we can be.

We have already started to replace our older vehicles with newer, more carbon efficient trucks and all new drivers will undergo Eco Driver Training. There is always extensive planning when carrying out a removal to make sure that the correct size truck is used and the best route is used to keep time on the road to a minimum.

Recycling is a big deal for us and all material shredded in our onsite facility is recycled and used for livestock bedding locally. All of our packaging materials are to be sourced from FSC approved manufacturers and to be recyclable. Even our high density bubble wrap is non-toxic, chemically inert and fully recyclable.

Finally we have also committed to planting 400 deciduous trees planted each year for the next 5 years local to our Wincanton Head Office. This will not only help with capturing the carbon produced by our space in the industry but it will also provide habitat for the wildlife too.
