Thousands of Pounds' Lost in Site Clearances
In an article published by Health Estate Journal, Mike Hilditch, Managing Director of Hilditch Group Ltd gives advice about site clearances to prevent companies losing out on significant amounts of money. He states: “In summary, companies must be flexible- preparing for any eventuality and changing the plan if necessary. Keep in mind the security of the old site which can be overlooked when company focus is on the new site, and also recycling equipment which is essential.”
With 25 years’ experience selling equipment on behalf of the NHS, Hilditch Group have managed over 90 hospital site clearances. Mike continues: “Asset managers are essential for the initial site assessment; they can highlight liability issues and determine the real areas of value.”
Hilditch Group have a number of valuers to provide accurate quotes on what equipment is worth before it is sent to auction, along with trained engineers who can inspect equipment and undertake data cleansing on hard drives, enabling resale instead of disposal.
Hilditch have just completed the clearance of Frenchay and Southmead Hospitals. Karen Shrimpton, Commissioning Manager at North Bristol NHS Trust said: “Our site clearance was executed to a very high standard thanks to the professional and skilful approach undertaken by Hilditch. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again to manage our future site clearances.”
