As an approved supplier, Merritts are required to store, transport, offload and position printing machinery at customer premises throughout the UK.
Machines were collected from designated stores by Merritts and were then logged in to one of our warehouses via our fully integrated computerised management system. Here we created a full condition report of the machines entailing the production of a photographic stock list detailing all printing machinery along with its ancillary equipment. Approval was then given by the client for our engineering personnel to carry out cleaning services and minor repairs. Subsequent to storage, arrangements were then made for Merritts to undertake onward transit and full machine installation at customers preferred site.
Merritts represent their client when on customer sites; and as such must perform to the same exacting standards of professionalism, technical competence and customer service.
Our personnel must develop a detailed knowledge of the client’s product range to enable safe and efficient handling of equipment when placing in to storage. Machines are off loaded and lifted from timber bases. These are later disposed of by Merritts at an approved recycling centre on the client’s behalf. A variety of lifting methods may be employed ranging from lorry mounted cranes, to lift trucks or specialist versalifts.
