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 apply for BS 8522 certification?

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.

How to get BS 8522

Our expert consultants will make the process of gaining BS 8522 as straightforward as possible for you. This includes helping your business make any necessary improvements to its processes.

Our 3-stage certification process ensures you get the help you need at every step. We can even create your Furniture Removal Activities Manual for you, saving you time and money.

Once you have achieved certification you will need to pass an audit each year. This is to ensure your business continues to benefit from implementing the BS 8522 framework. Your first audit will be one year after you receive your BS 8522 certificate.

Once you have achieved certification the certification cycle will commence. This is made up of surveillance and re-certification audits, one of which must take place each year, around the anniversary of your certification. These visits confirm your continued compliance with the Standard and verify the validity of your certification.
