UK-leading SafeContractor accreditation awarded to Pickfords, the UK’s largest moving and storage company

Pickfords has been moving homes across every UK postcode for generations and is committed to delivering high quality removal and storage services to a diverse range of customers and clients, from homeowners and businesses to government departments.

“Pickfords’ clients benefit from knowing that our staff, systems and procedures have undergone rigorous auditing and review to ensure we’re delivering our services to the high standards set by SafeContractor. Our SafeContractor accreditation has enabled us to demonstrate our commitment to best practice in health and safety to our new and existing clients.” commented Martin Budd, Head of Business Solutions, at Pickfords.

“In addition to demonstrating our high standards and protocols for health and safety and professional working, our SafeContractor accreditation saves us time when tendering for new work. Clients can save time in their pre-qualification stages of tendering for work as SafeContractor has already asked, checked and audited the relevant health and safety questions and checks for Pickfords, giving confidence that we are a compliant company to work with.” continued Martin Budd, Head of Business Solutions.

For contractors that want to enhance their reputation for health and safety, SafeContractor, the UK’s leading health and safety accreditation, verifies their compliance and connects contractors to leading organisations through an online portal. This enhances their profile to hundreds of companies that only work with SafeContractor members, saves time and money when bidding on new tenders and gives them the peace of mind that their health and safety practices are complaint with the law.

Gemma Archibald, Managing Director of Alcumus SafeContractor, said: “SafeContractor has 20 years of experience helping contractors to evidence that they have sound health and safety policies in place."

"No-one goes to work to get injured. Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

"We’re thrilled that Pickfords has achieved their SafeContractor accreditation, demonstrating their ongoing commitment to delivering the highest standards of health and safety compliance. We wish them every success with their future and are proud to have them within our community of over 33,000 contractors.”
