Re-cycled Flooring

Sevenoaks_StayGo_On_Call_Carpets

We were delighted to recently win a contract to provide flooring for the famous Gherkin building in London. What’s more exciting is that the client chose Modulyss ECO 100 C, for the reason that it has a 100% guaranteed recycled content! The Yarn, Econyl is made of 100% recycled nylon waste, including used fishing nets! The backing is manufactured by Colbond and is made from 100% post-consumer, recycled polyester (bottle scrap)! The carpet tile is stylish, high quality and suitable for heavy contract locations.

GREAT STYLE TOO!

Similarly, we have a new domestic carpet range made by Lano this year which is crafted from 100% solution-dyed Perlana PET fi bre, which provides a luxurious wool look, as well  as fantastic performance properties. This carpet is conveniently available in four or five  metre widths and has a pile weight of 40oz/sq yd. With a choice of 14 naturally rich and warm colours, Grandeur features the `Green Signature’ of Lano Carpets, as it is made from 100% recycled pile content (plastic bottles). Being bleach cleanable it provides the ultimate reassurance against spillages and also comes with a seven-year wear warranty for peace of mind. This is an elegant carpet that’s perfect for households with children and pets!

In this throw-away society, it is great to witness such innovative and effective re-use of some of our waste.

If you are interested in any of these products, or have any other flooring requirements, we would be delighted to hear from you.

On Call Carpets on BBC DIY SOS!

 “Even in tough times, it’s rewarding to give something back to society”

On Call Carpets, established in 1999, is a local, family-run business that prides itself on customer care. We were therefore delighted to take part in a recent episode of the BBC’s DIY SOS programme.

DIY-SOS-1000

Our name was put forward by our local business networking group, ‘Business over Breakfast’ as they’d heard that the programme was looking for local, reliable companies who were interested in contributing their services to a worthy community initiative.

The programme was aiming to transform the home of a struggling army veteran and his family in Maidstone. We were particularly pleased to be part of an initiative to help one of our brave servicemen who sacrifice so much for our country. Our contribution was to help to improve the family’s quality of life by providing and fitting attractive, quality and durable flooring.

On Call Carpets supplied and fitted a bleach cleanable twist carpet to the family’s three bedrooms, landing and stairs, plus a domestic vinyl to their bathroom. We were really impressed with the DIY SOS team, who ran an efficient and professional programme, managing to renew every part of the house in just ten days! All the trades involved worked well together, successfully keeping within the small time slots that we each had to complete our parts of the transformation. The “site banter” between the tradesmen and the builder/celebrities made it very enjoyable! All the cast were very friendly and appreciative of the companies who had donated their time and materials.

For those of you familiar with the show, “Billy” really is a very funny guy and the butt of everyone’s jokes, while Nick Knowles manages to stay cool, despite the banter and the time pressures! 

On a personal note, I was delighted to be involved. Even when we are all having tough times, it’s rewarding to be able to give something back to society.

This programme will be screened sometime in the next month or so, so keep an eye out for On Call Carpets!

Our thanks go to Ian Morgan of BOBs Clubs for putting our name forward; it just shows that belonging to a breakfast business club can broaden your horizons!

We would be very pleased to quote for any domestic or commercial carpets in and around Sevenoaks. All our work is guaranteed and all products have full warranties, so we provide a worry-free service.

Affordable quality in tough times

Customer care, quality service and keen pricing fuel the continued success of local business On Call Carpets, according to the company’s founder Andy Walter.

A first-class service has always been at the heart of On Call Carpets and the secret to its success, especially during the recession. With 25 years of experience in the flooring trade behind him, Andy Walter fulfilled his ambition to found his own company, On Call Carpets, in 1999 and has never looked back.

“I’m always conscious that being invited into people’s homes and work spaces is a privilege. Customers want to deal with a company they can trust to do a good job, without charging extortionate prices. I’ve developed On Call Carpets with a commitment to providing quality and care – “I want our customers to be happy with our service and products. We pride ourselves on receiving a very high number of recommendations, which suggests that we are getting this right.”

Twelve years on from starting his own business, Any is going from strength to strength specialising in supplying and fitting carpets and vinyl in Kent and south-east London. On Call Carpets provides flooring services for various clients, from traditional domestic consumers to industrial businesses.

The company has many regular commercial clients, including a customer with 20 nursing homes, three with blocks of offices and two diversified farms with offices and industrial units. The company also works with local medical centres, including Borough Green Medical Centre, local letting and estate agents and a large housing association.

Lettings manager for Pipers Business Centre, Fayi Reynolds commented: “Andy has completed work for us for over five years in our Maidstone, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks offices. The company is very reliable, tidy and also very competitive on price. We have never had cause to complain and would recommend On Call Carpets to anyone.”

On Call Carpets aim to ensure that customers are always satisfied and the company has established a successful aftercare service, where clients are encouraged to call if they have any questions or uncertainties. As Andy says: “All our services and products are guaranteed; therefore all works completed are worry-free. Customers value this degree of reassurance and we like to know that they are satisfied with their new flooring.”

Recently, the company completed the flooring for Sevenoaks Rugby Club’s new extension and refurbishment to its premises at Knole Paddock. Peter Hunt, who managed the project on behalf of the rugby club, said: “I’ve been very impressed with the ease and quality of service provided, which was all fitted and completed on time.”

Andy has even worked with large-scale clients such as the National Trust, recently completed work on Knole in Sevenoaks. Pauline Wall of The National Trust said: “We were very pleased with the efficient and timely service from On Call Carpets. We were also impressed with Andy’s knowledge of the specific health and safety issues relating to our special environment. We would definately recommend the company and will be inviting them back for the next project.”

Over the years, many customers have appreciated the personal style of service provided. On Call Carpets’ service is a little different; the team will come to your office or home where they will advise, measure and supply you with a non-obligatory quote. Andy says this is an integral part of their personalised service:

“We don’t mind if we visit several times, if needs be. We work hard to find the best carpet or vinyl for your situation and at the best price. We keep our prices as low as possible – especially in the hard times we are all experiencing at the moment.”

It is this combination of professionalism and dedication to customer service that the company hopes will ensure their continued success, even in tough economic times.
