In Our Customers Own Words...

A few of our customers testimonials from recent work

Michael Gaffney | Executive Director | GCG Shotblasting Services Ltd

“GCG would like to thank AM Smith for their continued support through utilisation of waste disposal services. In a market where costs are scrutinised and competition is vast many companies service levels falter as prices are driven down in the attempt to become more efficient. AM Smith services levels to GCG have continued at the highest standard whilst also remaining competitive within the market place.”

Highland Industrial Supplies Ltd, (Turriff)

“A & M Smith have been providing a competitively priced waste disposal services to Highland Industrial Supplies Ltd, (Turriff) branch, for a couple of years; supplying separate euro bins for paper, plastic, cardboard and enclosed REL skip for our non-hazardous waste. We are delighted with their convenient and efficient service, the staff are helpful and friendly and do their best to accommodate any alterations to our schedule. We would highly recommend their services. ”

John Mutten | Buyer | Burns Construction (Aberdeen) Limited

“Burns Construction (Aberdeen) Ltd have been using A&M Smith for our waste disposal for a good few years now on our sites & our yard facility. The reason we keep using them is that they give us the solutions we require in most circumstances we encounter. From tricky yard access issues to tailoring set days for skip empties, Si & the team go the extra mile to accommodate our specific needs. Easy to deal with & very attentive, you would be hard pushed to find a more suitable partner for your waste disposal needs.”

Ashleigh & Margaret | Fraserburgh Leisure Centre

“Fraserburgh Leisure Centre have always used Aberdeenshire Council for waste collection, but due to ever-increasing costs involved with running a business, we opted to look around for a better service at a lower cost. A & M Smith Skip hire came up trumps and Si has been brilliant with helping us with regards to the changeover from the council to A & M Smith Skip hire. The advice and service provided (from the initial phone call to delivery and collection of waste) has been second to none and we will not hesitate to recommend their service to others in the future.“

Dean Gowans, MD - Dean Gowans Property Development

“We have had an extremely busy and challenging start to the year taking on an unorthodox development. It is fair to say that this development has progressed better than expected due to the commitment and skill of a select few, not least yourself and staff members. Si deserves particular mention; he has been a pleasure to work with and has gone above and beyond to assist. A&M Smith Skip Hire are a highly professional firm and one that I would have no hesitation in recommending. Many thanks for your help and keep up the excellent work.“

Gary Moir, Managing Director - Moir Construction

“Moir Construction are a small/medium size house builder/developer based in Arbroath. Over recent years Moir Construction have been requested to work quite frequently in the Aberdeen area with various medium to large extension works. Moir Construction have used various waste management companies to assist in the removal of materials from sites in the area but have experienced some difficulties in obtaining a prompt and efficient service. With having to organise logistics of manpower and materials travelling from Arbroath it is critical to operations that waste management organisations turn up when they say they will be onsite as failure to deliver skips or turnaround skips results in manpower sitting around waiting unable to continue works at times which we have experienced several times with other waste management organisations. We have felt at times that we receive less priority than others as we are not based in the region.

However Moir Construction have recently moved across to AM Smith to assist in this area and we have seen a marked improvement in communications and to date AM Smith have delivered what they have promised and communication is much improved. I thank AM Smith for this better service and hope that work continues to improve business opportunities between our companies moving forward.“

Andy Thomson, Operations Director - MSL Property Care Services

“I would just like to say thanks for your help on the site and the punctuality of the individual drop offs and collections at Menzies in Aberdeen.

The time scale on site to complete the works were extremely tight where we had to dismantle a two storey office block (construction being of steel, timber, plasterboard, soft flooring, ceiling tiles) internally in the warehouse. This had to be segregated into a metal skip, plasterboard skip and 40 yard roll on off for general waste. We had plenty of space to the rear of the unit which made this operation easy.

We had to then take down a 225mm solid 7 Newton block dividing wall which spanned 20m by 10m high. Each block had to be taken down by hand by using cherry pickers and scissor lifts then being disposed into 20 yard roll on off skips. The exchange on these were critical to the process and all 4 skips were collected and exchanged when requested (a total of 4 were used accumulating a weight of approx 60 ton).

We had a meeting with Si on site prior to commencement where a plan was discussed and also the cost.

All in all a very hard physical job which was helped in the programming and strategic timing of the skip turn arounds.”
