The Used Kitchen Exchange founder Helen Lord has launched Specialist Kitchen Removals, a new “white-glove” removal and delivery service covering the whole of the UK.
The family run, award winning business specialise in the re-sale of Used (second hand) and Ex-Display Kitchens and working closely with some of the UK’s leading kitchen showrooms they claim they are able to give the used kitchen buyer a great selection of Used and Ex-Display kitchens at a fraction of their original retail price.
Whether you are looking to buy a kitchen or sell your current one, Used Kitchen Exchange have a team of Kitchen Specialists on hand to help you every step of the way.
Buying or selling a used kitchen is a great sustainability choice and makes financial sense for those on a very tight budget.
The company said its new fleet of five vans have been “specially adapted” to make the transportation of stone work surfaces and cabinetry “problem-free”. “For many years we have perfected our ‘know-how’ when removing ex-display and used kitchens,” said Lord.
“The skill and knowledge required when removing or delivering a pre-installed kitchen is very different from installation and we have found that too many showrooms using inexperienced fitters have experienced avoidable removal damage when selling their displays.”
Lord said that Specialist Kitchen Removals has “grown organically” from the dismantle and delivery service by the Used Kitchen Exchange to meet industry demand.
“Customer first impressions are vital,” Lord added. “I have never been a fan of the ‘white van man’ and our customer reviews have proved that to deliver a truly professional service your tradespeople require specialist know-how, be smartly dressed in an identifiable uniform and have a strong customer service focus.”
A look at the Used Kitchen Exchange website sees everything from ex-dsiplay kitchens from brands such as Nolte, Siematic, Warendorf, and whilst the market for ex-display kitchens with retail values of £2000-8000 maybe the norm it is hard to see how well an ex-display Warendorf kitchen in excess of £30,000 will be perceived from those who would be in the market for such premium german kitchens?
