Celebrations for Kent Removal Firm Colin Batt Removals
The team at family-run Kent removal firm Colin Batt Removals is celebrating again after being shortlisted for three awards. The company is a finalist in three categories in this year’s Ashford Business Awards – best customer service, best family-run business and best small business.
The team is hoping to build on their success last year, when they were finalists in the same three categories and won best family-run business. The winners will be announced at a dinner on Wednesday, November 20 at the Ashford International Hotel in Simone Weil Avenue.
The firm’s owner and managing director, Simon Batt, said: “To be shortlisted in three categories again is lovely. The quality of our service is something we’ve always prided ourselves on, so it always means a great deal to have that recognised.”
It’s been a pretty good couple of years for awards for the removal firm, which is based just outside Ashford and celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2018. That same year it won a Kent Excellence in Business Award for customer service, and was one of three companies shortlisted for the national British Association of Removers’ domestic mover of the year award, which is open to all 430 members of the professional body. The company also won the Ashford Business Award for customer service in 2017.
Run by Kings Hill event planners Best Business Events, the awards are open to businesses from Ashford, Folkestone, Deal, Dover, Hythe and Romney Marsh, and are judged by a panel of businesspeople from across Kent. There are separate awards for the Canterbury and Maidstone areas.
Shortlisted alongside Colin Batt are companies ranging from carpenters Wealden Woodstyle to IT company MPR IT Solutions and Realia Marketing, another of last year’s winners and the firm behind the Ashford snowdogs.
“Obviously we’d love to win, but just to be finalists is fantastic,” Simon Batt added. “Recognition like this helps new customers feel confident choosing us, as they can see that we really look after people. It’s also a real boost for our team, who all work so hard to take care of our customers.”
