Local Removals Services

Procurement Mission UK

The U.S. Embassy London intends to issue a Blanket Purchase Order (BPA) for local removals services.

Please note that a BPA is not a standard Purchase Order or contract as there is no financial commitment; rather, it acts as an over-arching agreement which allows the persons named on the order to request services up to a specific value using the BPA reference number.

The vendor must be able to provide the following services as and when requested:

  • Defurnishing to include collection, loading, protection (blanket wrap unless otherwise requested) and safe transportation of itemized USG household furnishings and appliances from various locations on designated dates to Storawayze, Unit 10 Wilberforce Road, West Hendon, London NW9 6AW
  • When defurnishing, the vendor must be able to store goods securely overnight if required for prompt delivery to the warehouse the following day
  • Furnishing to include collection, loading, protection (blanket wrap unless otherwise requested) from Storawayze, Unit 10 Wilberforce Road, West Hendon, London NW9 6AW and safe transportation of itemized USG household furnishings and appliances on designated date to identified USG residential/office property
  • Furnishing set-up and assembly if requested and possible warehouse staff member as escort
  • Quote prior to approval and include all associated parking charges
