CarlLyon172's review of Cadogan Tate

“Review themselves!”


written by CarlLyon172 on 29/04/2015

Disgusted at the extent of environmental waste this company produces! Boxes of unfragile items such as a pillow and linen stuffed to the brim with brand new paper packaging. One item per box and then a huge amount of paper again! With the items I received I think a whole forest suffered! Need to review their environmental footprint. Would not recommend to anyone!

Thank you for bringing your concerns about our environmental impact to our attention. We do take our environmental footprint very seriously and if you would like to contact me directly and provide your name, we will investigate this matter with the crew who performed your move.

There is always a fine balance between use of excessive amount of packing materials and proper protection of customers property. We err on the side of protection because a safe, damage free move is what the customer wants and pays for.

However, having said this, all our paper and card products are re-used several times. Our Estimators normally offer the customer a choice between new and re-cycled cartons, which is confirmed on the estimate.

At end of life all paper and card packing materials are recycled into the cardboard production cycle. There is absolutely no waste.

Cadogan Tate holds ISO 14001, which is the stringent and annually audited Environmental Quality Standard. We are probably one of the most environmentally responsible companies in the UK. Not only do we recycle all our packing materials but all our vehicles are low-noise, low-emission; we even helped develop and operate the only fully electric removals truck in the world with zero-emissions.

We also own and operate Eco Movers, a moving company based on sustainable operations.

For several years now we have also been a major supporter and sponsor of Elephant Family an environmental charity aimed at saving the Asian Elephant from extinction and over 4 projects we have donated hundreds of thousands of pounds in services to help support this worthy cause.

I would truly welcome the opportunity to discuss your concerns with you in more detail so please do get in contact.

Yours sincerely

Managing Director
Cadogan Tate Limited
