Local mover wins major contract with Hull City Council

Feb 08, 2017

Hardakers Removals has won a major contract with Hull City Council to move 316 people suffering from physical and mental disabilities, to new purpose-built accommodation in the city.

The Hull Extra Care project secured government funding of £80 million to provide residents with the facilities they need to live independently, with the added security of on-site care if and when they need it.

Hardakers, which has traded in Hull since 1870 and now incorporates long-established Selles Removals, tendered for the work last year and won the contract in the face of stiff competition from other movers in the area.

Richard Johnson, Hardakers’ Joint Managing Director with wife Jacqueline said, “We are delighted to have won the new contract with Hull City Council, it will be a fantastic start to 2017 for all of us at Hardakers Removals. We are exceptionally proud of all of the team involved.”

The contact will involve two moves a day to three locations; Harrison Park in North Hull, Cecil Gardens in West Hull and Redwood Glades in East Hull.

Work will begin in January 2017 and take a maximum of 14 months to complete.

Hull UK City of Culture 2017

This year will be a memorable year for the City of Hull as it welcomes visitors from far and wide to enjoy its year as UK City of Culture.

Just like a family getting ready for a special occasion, Hull has been preparing for its year in the spotlight by making sure everything is looking its best. Over 12 million pounds has been invested to make this already impressive city a world-class venue for the wide variety of cultural events that will be staged throughout 2017.

If you’ve never been to Hull, or even if you have, 2017 is the time to see this ancient maritime city at her very best and get a healthy dose of culture into the bargain.
