The Board Service Ltd.
Your image, in our hands
The Board Service offer a fast, efficient and reliable service to the residential and commercial Estate and Letting agent industry.
We provide both a residential and commercial sign erection service, meaning we can handle projects of all shapes and sizes. The demand for a professional and reliable board service led us to develop our own in 2002 and our client list continues to grow throughout the South East.
On a daily basis our vans will be working in Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Sevenoaks, Larkfield, Kings Hill, Maidstone, Paddock Wood, Uckfield and Crowborough to name but a few of the areas we cover.
We have 4 vans out on the road every day and are currently serving around 140 different local offices both residentially and commercially in addition to national contracts.
We embrace modern technology with a bespoke online database system designed specifically for the industry and also use GPS tracking on the complete fleet so can be as reactive as possible to customer needs and access real time data of job statuses.
We are an established company who take pride in providing a professional and cost effective service to the residential estate and letting agent industry. The service we offer can be illustrated as follows:
An online database giving you the ability to order work or check the status of any property/instruction, 24/7.
All work will be completed within 2 working days of receipt of instructions, but frequently same or next day.
We provide 2”x2” white painted posts if desired.
Professional computer cut vinyl information slips available.
All work undertaken within a 10/15 mile driving radius of your office.
We have a large and growing commercial client list and can provide and erect bespoke signage or utilise your existing stock. Working with both local commercial agents and also with national accounts, we are able to use our many years of experience to provide an efficient and professional service.
Many estate agents choose to work in partnership with local schools and organisations, to help advertise events such as fetes, fairs and carnivals.
This is a great source of advertising for the agent but also builds strong links with the local community.
We take pride in being organised to ensure your campaigns go up well but equally importantly, we plan for all signage to come down as soon after event as practical so that there can be no negativity associated with the agent.
Online Database & App
We have built a bespoke online database that will allow an agent to order, monitor and search through all previous work.
When ordering new instructions, there is the ability to add bespoke, professionally made computer cut vinyl information slips, add further information and even attach images of the property to help the erection process of the job.
All companies aspire to have green credentials and enjoy the many benefits that can be associated with being environmentally responsible. Estate agent boards are made of Correx which is a thermoplastic polymer known as polypropylene. This material can be difficult to recycle locally so damaged boards tend to end up in landfill through either the commercial or domestic refuse streams. Polypropylene can take up to 500 years to degrade so the estate and letting agent industry need to take responsibility for the huge quantity of boards that come to the end of their usable life.
Why is the service needed?
Legal. All businesses have a Duty of Care under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to take all reasonable steps to keep waste safe and arrange for its legal disposal.
Moral. We have a moral responsibility to try and reduce and ultimately eliminate all waste plastic being placed into the ground and for it to be re-used effectively.
Publicity. Companies with effective environmental strategies can use this as a strong sales point. Again, this will become more and more important in the future.
To comply with the regulations, all waste polypropylene will be collected once it is damaged beyond use. We are an accredited waste storage facility licensed by the Environment Agency. The damaged boards will be cleaned, baled and transported to an approved recycling centre. The waste will be granulated and then re-used in applications such as garden furniture. Appropriate copies of waste transfer documents can be supplied.
The cost is one single board movement per month. If this is a service that could benefit your business, please email us via the contact link below.
Bespoke QR Codes & Information Slips
We can produce professional QR codes and information slips on request to enhance the marking of a property and engage better with prospective customers.
