What Moves Us
THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY
In our industry, we’ve seen an alarming amount of perfectly serviceable furniture sent to landfill. We’re passionate about increasing the lifecycle of valuable resources and positively impacting the environment. That’s why we have created Green Furniture Hub (GFH).
Moving can be stressful for an organisation and its staff. We’ve embedded a meticulous attention to detail in our planning and delivery model to make sure your move is a success. We also encourage and reward staff to stretch for outstanding client outcomes.
Commercial relocations are complex. We have built a culture with a can-do attitude and one that thrives on solving challenges with creative thinking. This approach has enabled us to deliver program in times frames that competitors said were impossible.
