How Does Lift And Lay Work

How Does It Work?

The ‘Lift and Lay’ system is ideal for replacing modular flooring, like carpet tiles, with the same type of new flooring material. It’s not suitable for laying carpets as the floor needs preparation, and to be clear for installation.


Suitability & Current Flooring Assessment

We will conduct a free site visit to assess the workspace and furniture, so you’ll know if our ‘Lift and Lay’ can work for you. We can also bring along tile samples so you pick your flooring and receive an accurate quotation.


Preparation Phase

There’s a small amount of preparation required from you and your team, before we can lay the floor. These will be identified to you on the site visit, along with a checklist for your employees. This might include actions like, tidy away loose paperwork, ensure your computer is turned off, empty items that need to be manually moved


Leave the Office For The Day

That’s it, you’re free to go! The next time you step back in the office, a new floor will be installed.


Our Team Arrive

We use our hydraulic equipment to life your furniture and remove the old flooring. We’ll even remove and recycle it for you too. The new flooring is installed under your furniture.


Return To The Office

You and the team return to the office the next day, with a brand-new floor in place. It really is that simple!

How do you lift my office furniture?

The equipment we use has hydraulic pumps with hand and foot pedals to raise the desks.  We use our experience to place them in the strong junctions to ensure no damage. 

We have banks of 8 desks - can these be lifted?

Yes they can.  In this scenario we would use 6-8 lifters and pump them at the same time. This allows the whole bank to be lifted with putting pressure on the joints.

Will we need to work from home?

No - all or works are carried out in the evening or weekends so there is no disruption to the normal office hours.  If no one is in the offices we can carry of the installation in normal business hours too.

Do we need to be present for you to carry out the works?

No you do not.  We offer a free key collection and drop off service and all our staff are identity checked and worked for us for many years.

What do we need to do to prepare for the works?

All we say is loose items off the floor. Anything fragile or unstable put in a drawer.  That’s it! We do the rest!!

Which carpet should we go for?

On our appointment we will bring out samples.  We also recommend visiting our partner company Factory Direct Carpet Tiles. They have a great selection with all the advice to guide you through.

What are your payment terms?

This is assessed on a job by job basis. Normally it is 50% with order and 50% on completion once you are happy with the works. For larger projects we may split this into smaller amounts.
