We are proud of our work and would like to share our project


Former DHL Depot

DHL is the global leader in the logistics industry. Specialising in international shipping, courier services and transportation.


Long Eaton - Long Eaton is a town in the Erewash district of Derbyshire, England, just north of the River Trent, about 7 miles (11 km) south-west of Nottingham and some 8½ miles (13.7 km) south-east of Derby. The town population was 37,760 at the 2011 census.[1] It has been part of Erewash borough since 1 April 1974, when Long Eaton Urban District was disbanded.


At Jim Wise Demolition, we were tasked with Soft Strip out of the former DHL Depot in Long Eaton, this Strip out isto a 4 acre site, with the team currently working on part 1/8. This Demolition works involved the rip out of old racking shelves.

When companies such as DHL want to close and relocate we’re used to controlling all aspects of the dilapidation and relocation process. Some Dilapidation Orders only give us four weeks to complete processes such as:

• Office partitioning removal, including waste removal
• Pallet racking removal
• Barrier and steel removal
• Electrical strip out including on-site generators
• Furniture removal
• Air conditioning and sprinkler works

Some strip out projects require a specific approach. By offering added value to our clients, such as offering to sell on racking that is no longer required in a new premises we can save clients time, hassle and recoup some of their investment in old pallet racking.

Talking of pallet racking, we frequently complete jobs where we are against the clock. If you only have four weeks to find a provider who can carry out the removal of more than 1200 bays of 14m high pallet racking, then we have the experience in doing just that.

When working to tight deadlines, we don’t cut corners, we get to work ensuring strict Health and Safety controls are in place as we know that staff still have to conduct work in the building.
