Home improvements in lockdown leads to grabbing demand for Yorkshire business
RJC Plant Services Ltd have seen a rise in demand for their grab hire and aggregate supplies over the last three months thanks to an increase in home and garden improvements taking place across the district.
The Tadcaster based company, which is celebrating the launch of its new look website, has been supplying direct to homes across Yorkshire, as well as supporting landscapers, building contractors and driveway companies with their fleet of grab and tipper wagons as people gave their homes, gardens and driveways make-overs during lockdown.
The business, which is owned by Chris Jackson and John Harrison, has grown to a 15 strong fleet of wagons and street cleaners over the last 6 years. RJC also supplies road sweeping services to several local authorities which they continued without a break in service throughout the lockdown period.
Chris says: “We are really pleased we have been able to support so many local businesses over the last few months, working together to provide a great service to our domestic and commercial clients. It’s been a busy few month due to the increase in demand for our grab hire services, especially as it is often cheaper and more effective than skip hire and we can access those hard to reach and awkward places.”
John adds: “It’s been a challenging time for many people and businesses and we’re just pleased we were able to keep busy and support the many build and garden projects taking place across Yorkshire. We’ve provided over 4000 tonne of topsoil and aggregates over the last few months, and all the collected waste has been recycled.”
The RJC team were keen to show their support to the NHS and key workers throughout the lockdown, with all their wagons displaying a rainbow heart and they led a weekly procession through the streets of Cawood during the Thursday evening clap for carers.
