Martins Removal Services have been supplying removal services to some of the leading Edinburgh businesses including Royal Bank of Scotland, British Telecom, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Lothian Health Board, Scottish & Newcastle Ltd and The Royal Observatory over our years of trading.
Our vast experience includes handling large scale moves with a tight deadline. We were involved in moving of six East Lothian High Schools at the same time. The areas in the Schools affected were cleared at the start of the School holidays to enable works to be carried out and put back before the Schools returned after the summer break. The short notice requirements for this project were specifically demanding.
All our staff are experienced professionals in the field of furniture and office relocations to plan specification, some having 25 years or more experience.
We have a wealth of diverse knowledge in the field of removals and transport and are happy to work hand in hand with out customers in order to fulfil their requirements.
Staff are continually trained and have been vetted through the enhanced Disclosure Scotland check.
Our skilled staff are friendly, motivated and fully committed to providing a level of service that is second to none. On what can be a very stressful day for all parties concerned their duties will be carried out both helpfully and cheerfully making the move go smoothly and with minimum disruption.
All our staff wear uniforms and safety shoes. They are also provided with high visibility jackets, gloves and safety goggles. Hard hats are provided for use, if necessary in the different environments we encounter. Vehicles We can supply any size of vehicle from light commercial vehicles for places with access issues through to 17.5 ton full sized pantecnicons with side container doors 2 ton tail lift and system ramping.
