Moving a business is a whole different thing than moving a home. There are many moving parts! You need timely precision with a focus on as little downtime for your business as possible.
So, moving commercial business offices, stock, and equipment require different considerations, safety procedures, moving supplies, storage when needed, and expertise.
Something we understand, and as a group we have many years’ experience in doing for our customers.
We move domestic and commercial customers around the corner, and around the world. And Bennett’s is here to serve the great city of Sheffield in South Yorkshire and surrounding areas.
