Delivering secure, safe and controlled hi-tech warehousing is an integral part of Relay services as a logistics company dedicated to handling valuable, sophisticated and fragile equipment. We provide extensive technical warehousing and specialist equipment storage facilities at three UK locations offering a nationwide service resourced to handle high value assets.

Technical equipment handling is a skill possessed by our staff to carry out your storage requirements. To complete the task properly, we ensure the correct equipment is used for the job, plan each task to minimise any identified risks and maintain and check our equipment regularly. 

As part of the technical equipment transport process, having a safe and secure location to store goods is important. Our warehouses are strategically placed to help your operation run smoothly. They offer a protected environment for customers or engineers to collect equipment, or a place to hold goods for a certain amount of time before they need to be delivered to their destination

This is supported by our experienced warehousing personnel with the specialist equipment handing skills and a range of technical resources geared to eliminate any risk of damage.
