Business-class levels of service
At Crown Workspace, we pride ourselves on maintaining business class levels of service, guaranteeing a personalised, highly professional offering that enables you and your business to benefit from seamless operations in times of change.
As part of our integrated service offering, we can help clients at any stage of a workplace change.
We provide high-quality account management and reporting to ensure your relocation is delivered to the highest standard. Our directly employed team are fully trained and security cleared to the highest level, providing you with the right team at the right time. With uniformed staff and a liveried, fully tracked fleet, we ensure the protection and security of your assets at all times.
Whether it is moving artwork, books and other collections as part of a bigger commercial relocation, or moving whole hospitals, libraries, laboratories, factories or museums, we have an array of expertise. By nature, their requirements differ from the average commercial relocation and require particular knowledge, dedicated equipment and specialist staff.
We have extensive experience in planning and delivering specialist relocation projects, which can be undertaken around your exact needs, whilst maintaining live and sensitive operations. For example, we can avoid potential conflicts with employees, students and the public, by conducting works outside of operational hours. We have also moved museum exhibitions overnight and library collections over weekends to minimise disruption.
What makes us different?
We are a single-source relocation service provider, with over 20 years’ heritage relocating offices and specialist and sensitive environments. We have a variety of blue-chip clients, including businesses such as KPMG, Tesco, Transport for London, the Francis Crick Institute, British Library, Metropolitan Police and Man Group.
Innovative and forward-thinking, we are continually revolutionising and bringing in new services, and investing in our people, systems and equipment to deliver the business class services for which we are known. Examples include:
- We are the first major relocation company to become a living wage service provider.
- We have enabled clients to donate tens of thousands of items of furniture to local charities, schools, and social enterprises through our Giving Back Project.
- Investment in Business in the Community (BITC) to continuously improve our impact on society.
We offer a professional and responsive service, and can support moves of all sizes – treating every client the same way.
Working in partnership with you throughout your project, a dedicated project manager will be assigned to you right from the initial planning stage. This is done to ensure you are fully supported and benefit from our extensive experience in move management.
As a leading provider of workplace change services, we can deliver our relocation services on a standalone or integrated basis. We can support your move projects with IT relocation expertise, interior refurbishment and fit-out services, storage services, specialist cleaning services and sustainable clearance solutions.
Why our staff and vehicles are so important
We have 120 dedicated, in-house trained operatives, who are vetted to high-security standards and provided the living wage. All staff are also DBS checked, CTC security cleared and NPP level 2 approved.
To safely transport your items, we have a fleet of over 60 vehicles; all of which have lifters, are air chilled and temperature and humidity-controlled. Our vehicles are also fitted with TrackM8 for live tracking, including route planning, 3 point camera system, and emissions reporting. This means we are able to optimise the load of our vehicles to achieve greater efficiency while relocating offices, and also reduce our impact on the environment.
This gives peace of mind to our clients, knowing their items are being handled safely and securely by our highly-trained staff.
