New products for 2020: 1 carpet-topped furniture skates

Carpet-topped furniture skates from Evo Supplies

Carpet-topped furniture skates with a rubber bumper strip are an exciting new addition to our best-selling range of heavy-duty moving dollies.

Carpet-topped furniture skates offer an attractive alternative to our rubber-topped skates. They’re perfect for those jobs when you need to s-l-i-d-e loads on and off your skate easily, without any friction. Or when carrying delicate or easily-marked items that require a softer carrying surface than ribbed rubber.

Rather than using brand new carpet, we’ve sourced A-grade recycled, or unused overstock, carpet tiles from Envirocycle London Ltd. These have been recovered from refurbished offices and diverted from landfill.

Envirocycle London logo recycled carpet tiles

Choose from 590mm or 480mm size, both with a moulded rubber bumper.

Trumpet blowing!

Trumpet

Toot toot!

Our recent annual management system surveillance audit report by NQA recommended Evo’s continued ISO 9001:2015 certification, with this glowing report in the Executive Summary.

This surveillance observed a very satisfactory level of compliance. There has been a change in the production resources that has resulted in very positive changes in regards to quality, consistency and efficiency.

The internal audits have been completed suitably, with no findings and are completed by continual monitoring and the quarterly review process.

The management review is working effectively and gave a satisfactory reflection of the system and operational performance.

The main point of note this year is the improvements made in the production area. These include a reworking of processes, equipment and practices. All of which have seen positive results and have been well received by all.

The organisation work very well as a small team, with good communication and planning and a very considered and consistent approach to product quality and client satisfaction.

Full credit to Team Evo for a fantastic performance over the past 12 months.

Evo Supplies make PINK furniture skates in support of Prevent Breast Cancer

BCL Office Moves pink Evo personalised skates Prevent Breast Cancer

 

When we took our furniture skate trade stand to the Movers & Storers Show last November, we offered our sought-after annual “Show Skate” as the prize in a raffle to raise funds for the Show’s chosen charity for 2018: Prevent Breast Cancer.

Movers & Storers Show prize skate 2018

Visitors and fellow exhibitors responded magnificently, and over the two days of the Show we raised a total of £152 for Prevent Breast Cancer.

The lucky winner was Peter Sturt of Bespoke Bodies.

The 2018 Britain’s Strongest Mover competition at the Movers & Storers Show involved contestants pulling one of BCL Office Moving‘s bright pink 7.5-tonne trucks over a 40m distance, while wearing pink tutus. It was quite a sight to behold!

Congratulations to Simon Beck, our removal man who came in second place in the Britain's Strongest Mover contest at the Movers & Storers show! Our truck was used for the truck pull portion of the contest – wrapped in a tutu in honor of Prevent Breast Cancer charity (@WeArePreventBreastCancer) and the men all wore tutus during the event! Here's a video of Simon pulling the truck!

In 2014, together with their sister company, Britannia Bradshaw International Removals & StorageBCL painted some of their vehicles bright pink in support of Prevent Breast Cancer (formerly called Genesis). You can read all about this brilliant fundraising and awareness-raising initiative in Removals & Storage magazine

Having met us at the Movers & Storers show, BCL Office Moving – part of Britannia International – went on to order these fabulous PINK personalised furniture skates, giving Evo Supplies an additional opportunity to help raise awareness of the vital work of Prevent Breast Cancer.

Evo Supplies is making a donation to Prevent Breast Cancer for every pink skate we manufacture, and are immensely proud to have become official Prevent Breast Cancer Corporate Supporters.

We’re really excited by the potential for awareness-raising that Evo’s personalised furniture skates can offer. So if some eye-catching moving skates like these would help publicise YOUR company’s charitable fundraising initiative, we’ll be very happy to help. Just give us a call on 01206 386683 to discuss.

More about Prevent Breast Cancer

Prevent Breast Cancer is the only UK charity funding ground-breaking research solely aimed at preventing breast cancer for future generations.

Predict. Prevent. Protect. This is the charity’s mantra. As the only UK charity entirely dedicated to the prediction and prevention of breast cancer, Prevent Breast Cancer is committed to freeing the world from the disease altogether. Unlike many cancer charities, it’s focused on preventing, rather than curing. Promoting early diagnosis, screening and lifestyle changes to stop the problem before it starts.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. Prevent Breast Cancer is passionate about stopping the disease before it starts, and collaborates with others to influence change in breast cancer services. We work closely with The Manchester Breast Centre to collaborate with the best experts in the field. And by being based at the UK’s only breast cancer prevention centre, The Nightingale Centre, Prevent Breast Cancer is at the forefront of preventative research.

The devastating disease of breast cancer affects too many people – the patients, their families, friends and colleagues. It is a disease that can often be cured if caught early and suitable treatments are prescribed. But what if there was no need for the cure? What if people could live their lives safe in the knowledge that it would never happen to them?

Every year, in the UK, 55,000 individuals are diagnosed – that’s 150 people a day. And every year, we lose 11,400 to this disease. That’s 11,400 too many. In fact, it is 55,000 too many. If we could prevent breast cancer tomorrow, by 2027, over 550,000 would never receive a diagnosis.

The Vision

To prevent breast cancer for future generations through preventative testing, screening, lifestyle changes and drugs where needed.

The Need

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, despite it being a rare disease in men.
  • 1 in 9 women and 1 in 1000 men in the UK will develop the disease in their lifetime.
  • Across the UK, 55,000 people annually are diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • Tragically 11,400 women do not survive, though survival rates are increasing.
  • In the last ten years, female incidence rates have increased by 3.6%.
  • In the UK breast cancer rates have increased by 57% in the last 30 years.
  • It is predicted that in the UK there will be 57,000 new cases per annum by 2024, an increase of 7% in 8 years.
  • Currently only 3% of all cancer research funding is spent on prevention.

Prevent Breast Cancer seed-funds medical research projects into the prediction and prevention of breast cancer – without our original funding these research projects would not happen. Once the projects have been undertaken, they can often support large grant applications to organisations such as The National Institute of Health Research.

Specific Aims

To:

  • Predict which women are most susceptible to breast cancer.
  • Diagnose the disease early through better and earlier detection methods.
  • Research and develop preventative measures for the disease.
  • Increase the uptake of breast screening in minority ethnic groups.

Objectives

To:

  • Identify women as high, medium or low risk through gene, lifestyle and breast density testing.
  • Undertake further research into high risk genes and gene fragments (SNPs).
  • Offer diet and lifestyle interventions to those deemed high-risk.
  • Increase the frequency of screening for high-risk women.
  • Improve diagnosis and treatment of pre-cancer changes.
  • Develop preventative drugs for appropriate patients.
  • Provide more accurate breast screening tools.
  • Raise awareness of the disease in minority ethnic communities.

What a fantastic Movers & Storers Show we enjoyed this year!

The show offers an unrivalled annual opportunity to meet up with hundreds of removals and storage professionals – not just from the UK but from Ireland, Europe and even farther afield.

Evoskate biscuits!

As always, we took along plenty of our delicious #evoskate biscuits, along with chocolates, pens, coasters and balloons to tempt visitors into our stand.

Top-of-the range furniture moving equpiment

But of course the main attraction was our top-of-the-range furniture moving equipment. This year’s top favourites were our ultra-heavy duty products, including piano skates and ‘Mighty Movers’.

With their giant 200mm wheels and 36mm platforms, Evo piano skates will carry up to 900kg and are ideal for moving all kinds of heavy items – not just pianos.

 

Evo Super Piano Skate

We came up with the idea for the Mighty Mover at the Movers & Storers Show two years ago. We were asked for an even heavier-duty version of our double-thickness skates, so we came up with a design. The resulting 1-tonne capacity skate quickly became one of our best-sellers.

Prevent Breast Cancer

The show’s charity for 2018 was Prevent Breast Cancer – selected in memory of Malcolm Halley, who died in August. We were very pleased to offer this year’s ‘Show Skate’ as the prize in a charity raffle, which raised £152 for Prevent Breast Cancer. The lucky winner was Peter Sturt of Bespoke Bodies.
