A message from our client:
If you invite a stranger into your house to look at everything you have and then let them leave, only to return some time later at an agreed price to collect everything you own and take it away - what precautions would you take?

Ethical employer Anchor Removals leads the way

Britannia Anchor Removals in Salford was runner up in the #BestEmployer category at the #SBA2017 Salford Business Awards.

#livingwage

The accolade recognises Anchor’s trailblazing commitment to social responsibility and its accreditation as a Living Wage Employer, paying employees a real living wage of £8.45.

The removals industry is renowned for its hard physical work, unpredictable hours and generally poor treatment of employees. Anchor has no staff on zero hour contracts. All employees enjoy full-time, 40-hour contracts and are paid through a proper PAYE tax system rather than by cash. Staff are also engaged in company decisions through regular meetings across the organisation.

The innovative approach has been applauded by the company’s customers and helped Anchor Removals outperform the market. “The customers love it,” says Sales Manager Martin Edmondson. “They are big supporters of the Living Wage, and it is a massive positive for them that we only use full-time employees. We have gone from strength to strength. It is a fantastic selling point for us. I am convinced that we are converting quotes into jobs as a result.”

Benefits of being a Living Wage employer

“The truth is that well paid, well looked after staff means totally engaged and committed employees, leading to the delivery of high quality work,” says company Director Chris Smallwood, who is one of the industry’s leading advocates for corporate social responsibility.

Martin, who originally trained as a general porter and moved on to becoming a surveyor then export consultant before he joined Anchor Removals, says the Living Wage has also helped create a real sense of dedication and engagement with the job. “I’ve worked in the industry for near on twenty years, and I can say that this is one of the best teams I have worked in,” he says. “We have regular meetings and Chris encourages us to see how we can turn any concern or negative feeling into a positive by the end of the meeting. We have become a close-knit unit, with a lot of passion for what we do.”

Britannia Anchor clearly has ambitions to lead the way to a more responsible and sustainable industry; the company works with a number of local and national charities and with local sporting institutions, and has built strong ties with the Salford community. “Our commitment to social responsibility is a big part of who we are as a company and is also helping us grow our business,” Chris says. “It is an honour for this to be recognised in the Salford Business Awards.” #business #movingwithaheart #removals

Thank you so much for stepping in at the last minute after we were let down by another company! The boys did a fantastic job and were so kind to my daughter, who as you say, has been poorly. You made what could have been a very stressful day into a calm pleasant experience. I would highly recommend you and would certainly use you again. Thanks lads.

When choosing a company for ‪#‎movinghouse‬ people will often look at a lot of things such as service, price and value for money. But what really makes a company a good one? I believe it is how you look after your people - work colleagues - they are the fabric of your business and they are key to your ability to deliver excellent service. If you care about them, they are going to give you that little bit extra, to the benefit of your clients. So what makes Anchor Removals different? Living wage, no zero hours, engaging our team in our decision making processes, visiting our charities.

We often are asked by our customers what exchange and completion dates are when ‪#‎moving‬ house. Exchange is when you have signed the contracts with the people buying your house and / or selling you a house and the contracts are passed between theirs and your legal representatives making the house sale a legal commitment. (please note it is different in Scotland). 
Completion is where the monies to buy your property have cleared in the vendors account and the property legally becomes yours. This is basic and you should always speak with a legal professional to seek guidance. However, always try to arrange exchange two weeks prior to completion, this gives you peace of mind and will remove a huge amount of the risks and hassle in the actual #moving process. ‪‪ #movingtips   #community   #movinghouse   #moving   #movingwithaheart
