BS 8522 Quality Standards in Commercial Moving
Commercial Moving – BS 8522

The British Association of Removers and the Commercial Movers Group further developed a bespoke commercial moving standard the, BS 8522.

  • Vehicles (suitability, condition and maintenance)
  • Packing materials (suitability and adequacy of range and stocks for different removal projects and objects)
  • Key documents – specific contents of removals quotation and job sheet.
  • Subcontracting removals services (control of subcontractors and ensuring consistent performance and compliance with the standard throughout a move)
  • Liability / provision of removals specific insurance
  • Claims and compensation for loss or damage during a move
  • Equipment (adequacy, training of removals operatives))

ISO 14001 Quality Standards in Environmental Management Systems
Environmental – ISO 14001

Specialised Movers realised that running a removal company may have certain detrimental effects to the environment.


To combat this, our team needed to understand the impact of our actions and how we can improve them.

Therefore Specialised Movers have achieved the BS EN ISO 14001 Standard in Environmental Management Systems as a major step towards our responsibilities to the environment.

This international Standard specifies requirements for an environmental management system to enable Specialised Movers to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organisation subscribes, and about significant environmental aspects. It applies to those environmental aspects that Specialised Movers identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence.

The Standard covers the following areas:

  • Environment – surroundings in which we operate including air, water, land, natural resources, flora, fauna, humans and their interrelation.
  • Environmental Aspect – activities or products or services that can interact with the environment.
  • Environmental Impact – changes to the environment whether adverse or beneficial, wholly or partly resulting from our actions.
  • Environmental Management System – to develop and implement our environmental policy and environmental aspects.
  • Environmental Objectives – setting improvement targets.
  • Environmental Performance – measuring our performance for each category of works.
  • Prevention of Pollution – use of processes, techniques, materials, services or energy to avoid, reduce or control the creation, emission or discharge of any type of pollutant or waste, in order to reduce adverse environmental impacts.

ISO 27001 Quality Standards in Information Security Management Systems
Information Security ISO 27001

You simply can’t be too careful when it comes to information security. Protecting personal records and commercially sensitive information is critical.


You need to be able to trust the removals company moving, storing or collecting the data about you or your company. This may be simply details from a payment transaction, or moving files, statements etc in your home move. More and more we hear of stolen bank details or identity fraud.

You may belong to an organisation that need to move or store important personnel files, medical records, product information.

How do you evaluate the right company for this type of work?

At specialised movers we are accreditated with the British Standard BS ISO IEC 27001 Information Security Management Systems

This ISO/IEC 27001 helps us implement a robust approach to managing information security (infosec) and building resilience.

Briefly: About ISO/IEC 27001

Internationally recognized ISO/IEC 27001 is an excellent framework which helps organizations manage and protect information assets so that they remain safe and secure. It helps us to continually review and refine the way we do this, not only for today, but also for the future.

That’s how ISO/IEC 27001 protects our business, our reputation and your information.

Feedback on our services
Working With HSBC

I would like to state how pleased we were with the Specialised Movers [team]. They worked extremely hard, support on the Monday again was second to none. The move although appeared straight forward is quite technical due to the kit we have, very bespoke to our business.

Working With The NHS

I just wanted to express my thanks (and that of all the ward staff including Charge Nurse Healy) to you and your teams for the support and hard work provided in the deep clean and subsequent moves from Ward Q1. It was a difficult move with the complexity of the patients group we have but all staff worked together to ensure patient safety was maintained and limited disruption occurred.

Working With The Institute Of Materials, Minerals And Mining

On behalf of all members of the Institute can I thank you for such a professional and well managed service. Your crew on site were absolutely wonderful to work with and the activity was completed without issue. We fully intend to be in touch regarding your proposal to transfer the stored items back to London.

Working With Iceotope

The move could not have gone any swifter. The men were polite, professional and courteous. They actually finished ahead of schedule, I guess they don’t call you ‘specialised’ for nothing. Of course, we moved in the worst rain of the year but hey – they say, that’s good luck, right?

Working With University Of Sheffield

I’m just emailing to express my gratitude for what was a superb service. On the first day three guys worked solidly, carefully packing all our belongings. On the second they were joined by one other and the four of them worked absolutely tirelessly for at least 12 hours and probably longer. It was a tough job with lots of steps and heavy furniture involved, and they must’ve been absolutely exhausted. But they were extremely friendly, polite and incredibly efficient. I’d have no hesitation to recommend them to anyone.

Working With Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council

Just wanted to thank yourself and John for all your help with the election in May and EU Referendum in June. You should be proud of yourselves for contributing to two successful elections and you make a very difficult job much easier. Fingers crossed we don’t have another election this year!

Working With Kirklees Neigbourhood Housing

I’m just letting you know how impressed I was this morning by your employees. They were there before 8am and the removals went without a hitch. They were lovely with the tenant, who was stressed and panicking , by taking real care with her furniture and listening to her wishes. I did thank them at the time but I’d like their excellent service to be recognised by you too.

Working With Sheffield Hallam University

Just wanted to say thanks for all the help during this unloading and moving job on Tuesday. Your team were brilliant, dead on time, helpful, quick and totally professional, a real pleasure to work with.

Working With Sheffield Hallam Students' Union

I just wanted to say a really big thank you for all your help with the moves. We are all now in place so the guys for specialised movers have gone – they were brilliant ! The only outstanding things are the IT in advice which John is dealing with I understand. Really appreciate everything you have done.

Working With Parker Hannifin Corporation

Please pass on my appreciation to your team for their hard work on Saturday moving our furniture, computers and other bits and pieces to our new office at Manvers House. The lads were extremely professional and well organised and a credit to your business. Their approach and attitude was observed by several other people on the day and I am sure you will receive referrals for new business from it.

Working With SIG plc

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to your teams that helped with over move from Hillsborough to Signet House over the last 2 weeks. At all times your staff were very pleasant, well mannered, presentable, quiet (given most of the works were completed during working hours) and very efficient. The move went very smoothly and the whole project was completed to plan and on time. I hope we have the pleasure of using yourselves in the future.

Working With University Of Hull

I appreciate the speed and flexibility with which everyone at Specialised worked to accommodate our needs. The circumstances were not typical, but everyone has been really professional and helpful in fluid circumstances. We came across Specialised by chance and received very positive feedback from Manchester Metropolitan University about work you had done for them. I am pleased to say that this was borne out by our experience. Thank you again for responding so positively to our request. I wish Specialised every success in the future.
