When Is A Move Not A Move?
By Nigel Dews, Managing Director, Harrow Green
Though relocations form the vast majority of our business operations, very often, projects will include anything but moving.  In fact, we often manage clients who don’t take any of their existing equipment but prefer to upgrade their assets to suit their new premises.  In cases such as this, legacy items can be dealt with in a variety of different ways.  Namely:

Through established partners, furniture can be sold for the best return possible and all proceeds go back to the client or can be offset against relocation and other charges.

Charitable donation
Donation is a great way to contribute to local charities, business start-ups, local community groups and schools which have limited to no budget for asset acquisition but which are in need of new furniture or IT equipment.

We offer a refurbishment service for defective furniture and IT equipment that may not be fit for standard resale, but ideal for donation or reduced price resale.

We have a fully licensed centre that can oversee all aspects of the recycling of legacy assets, from dismantling and sorting, through to segregation and repurposing of waste.

Harrow Green implement a zero waste to landfill policy wherever possible, even though sometimes , disposal is the only course of action.  If this is the case, as much of the product as possible will be salvaged for spares and the remainder will be converted to fuel pellets, for example.

Whatever your relocation needs, Harrow Green offer a single-source solution for legacy to assets.  Visit our website and get in touch with our specialist team of relocation experts, to find out how we can help.
