New Two Furniture Packages
Working in conjunction with support organisations, local authorities and social housing providers, who either provide their own accommodation or support service users in their own accommodation, New Two provides a Furniture Package supply & installation service offering the full range of furniture and household items required to turn accommodation into habitable condition.
The service provides a one stop shop for customers which includes the initial survey of the property, measuring floor and window sizes, checking space layout and floor footprint to assess models options & correct fit, then delivery includes the installation of electrical white goods and laying out of all items in the correct place before removing all packaging leaving the property in move in condition.
New Two Furniture Manufacturing and Refurbishment
Initially developed from the experience acquired through the Furniture Reuse Centre the service specialised in reupholstery work. The service has since progressed into the manufacturing of suites and seating.
Able to specialise in bespoke products made to customer specification, most orders are for contract environments such as residential accommodation, day care centres, theatres, halls and offices.
New Two Contract & Office Furniture & Furnishings
New Two supplies furniture into contract environments such as care homes, day care, supported accommodation and offices. The supply of the contract service covers all the furniture covers all the furniture requirements for a commercial environment and compliments the same market for the suites and seating manufactured internally within the organisation.
Often required by customers moving into a new premise, the service offers site visits to assist with space planning and swatch samples to help with colour matching etc. In addition New Two also has a small contract showroom which allows furniture to be laid out in room sets for customers to see and feel what it will look like.
New Two has developed a wide ranging supplier network from whom they can source a well priced product range which meet all the furniture and furnishing requirements for contract customers when moving into a building for the first time.
Most contract customers have an office which usually means at some point they need office furniture. The New Two Office Furniture supply service provides the full range of office furniture, and for the most popular items a next day delivery service direct from the manufacturer is on offer. An Office Furniture catalogue is available for customers but it can also be viewed on line.
