Commercial Transfer join Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council team to help deliver Covid-19 Field Hospital.

As the country faced the Covid-19 Pandemic and the rising number of patients putting strain on hospitals, Commercial Transfer were called in to rapidly clear a council facility in Abercynon office building in preparation for a new Enfys (Rainbow) Field Hospital.


With the hospital admissions rising and the forecasted patient numbers rising, Rhondda Taf council needed to take steps to ensure the hospitals were not overwhelmed and that the best possible care continued to be provided to those suffering from Covid-19

Having identified a large office building, containing up to 600 workstations, they needed a trusted team that could rapidly and securely pack confidential documents and clear the offices in preparation.


In less than 24 hours, Commercial Transfers specialist team were on site. With a long standing relationship with Rhonda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, we were able to get a specialist team on site the next day. Working double days, the whole project took less than 24 hours to complete.

  • Packing & Boxing: Providing a wide range of packing crates, our team of technicians packed, labelled and cleared files, desk contents and IT equipment for over 500 workstations.

  • IT Services: Our IT technicians disconnected, cleaned, labelled and packaged over 500 desktop computers ready to be seamlessly reunited with the desk contents.

  • Furniture Dismantling & Packing:  With over 1200 items of furniture to clear our professional furniture fitters came in and rapidly dismantled each piece of furniture.

  • Commercial Removals: Using Commercial Transfers fleet of purpose built vehicles we were able to continuously clear the contents placing in the Councils allocated storage area ready to be reinstalled at a later date.

  • Move Management: Each stage was planned and delivered by the team leader in each team, all personally overseen by our Account Director who remained on site throughout the move.


Within days of the requirement being identified the space was clear ready for the military and local authorities to transform the space into a field hospital and create over 150 more beds.
