At Smart Express our goal is to help each and every one of our customers to the best of our ability. We aim to provide an excellent service upon every move and delivery. However, sometimes we get really lucky and work together with customers to help others.
Recently we were contacted by the organisation Take My Hands. Take My Hands are a social enterprise that connects “those that have with those that need it”. So far they have sent over 36,000kg of medical equipment resources to 5 different countries. So far they have helped more than 110,295 people.
We were able to help Take My Hands transport ultrasound beds and machines from Wellington to Auckland. These were kindly donated by Pacific Radiology in Wellington. These beds were then transported from Auckland to a Women’s Health Clinic in Pakistan.
We would like to say a big thank you to Take My Hands for providing us with an opportunity to help. And also to our drivers Deep and Anoop who took great care of the equipment throughout the delivery.
After the move was completed, Take My Hands kindly thanked us on Facebook with a lovely message and video!
Here is what Take My Hands said about us
“At Take My Hands we are always amazed how our Partners go the extra mile to help us, and this story is a good example of this. One of our recent callouts is for equipment for a Women’s Health Clinic in Pakistan which is supported by The Shared Care. We received notification at the beginning of the year for a donation of some ultrasound beds and an ultrasound machine from Pacific Radiology in Wellington. This was perfect, and on our needs list, however, our next challenge was getting them up to Auckland for the littlest cost possible.
This is where we would like to extend our huge thanks to Smart Express Auckland Movers and Susan Spelman who tirelessly juggled her very busy schedule and accepted the mission at a significant discount. The first stage of the journey was picking up the goods and then delivering them to Auckland, but unfortunately TMH didn’t have enough room in our container so they kindly stored the items over the weekend and then bright and early Tuesday morning our coordinator Jenni met up with Deep and Anoop (seen below) who helped to load it into our container. So thank you, everyone, who helped to make this happen. Mission accomplished.😁❤️”
