BS 8522

Furniture Removal Activities

Make your furniture removal activities more efficient, save money and build your brand’s reputation.

If you run a commercial moving business, you’ll know how important efficient procedures are to completing furniture removal activities safely and successfully. The BS 8522 framework specifies everything you need to monitor and control when providing these services. It will also help you define the scope of your services, gather the necessary information from your customers and prepare accurate quotes.

Why should I consider BS 8522?

By complying with this industry-recognised benchmark, you will enhance your reputation and open up new business opportunities. Many private and public sector tenders for commercial removal services already require providers to have this standard. Gaining BS 8522 will enable you to pitch for this sort of work, while giving your existing customers added peace of mind.

Here are some benefits of using the BS 8522 framework: 

  1. Initial contact procedures
  2. Preliminary information requirements
  3. Furniture removal service specifications
  4. Contractual and statutory documents
  5. Furniture removal service provision
  6. Employee competences and training
  7. After sales service, such as handling customer feedback
  8. Quality control across your service, from start to finish.

Client Testimonials of QMS and the ISO Certification Process

    The communication from QMS is always quick and helpful. Despite being really nervous about our first Annual External audit, the Auditor was great at putting my mind at ease and comments were insightful and of great use.

    General review

    [The Consultant] visited us to complete our external ISO audit. I explained to [him] that I am new to the process and have recently taken ownership of Soilfix's internal BMS auditing procedure. During the audit [the Consultant] was careful to explain each piece of information he required and where it linked into the clauses and standard. This was very beneficial to both myself and my colleague, as it demonstrated to us that we are going along the right track with our internal auditing process in support of retaining our ISO accreditations.

How much does an BS 8522 cost?
