      We have had 8 of your Mirage chairs for over 2 years and they are just as good

      as the day they were purchased. A great chair for sitting at your desk all day

      with the lumbar and back support..Time to upgrade another 16 !!

       I should let you know that I have placed an order with Adam Clarke and this

       is not just because of the decent quotation, but more the manner in which it was

       dealt with by yourself but in particular by Adam. I won't mention names but I made

       the same enquiry of four companies and you win..hands down.

        Dear Keith

 

        I'd like to say a 'big thank you' for all the help and assistance we receive from

        Carlisle Business Supplies , particularly with our recent office development.

 

        The provision of 2D and 3D drawings to help determine the office layout, with the

        ablity to make ammendments as required , resulted  in minimal service down time

        as the drawings formed the basis for the plan on ' moving day '.

 

        The new furniture we purchased for the software development team and the new

        meeting room has enabled us to make excellent use of the open plan space, and

        has become the 'envy' of the others within the building. The furniture is functional

        yet modern looking and was installed by the CBS team of installers.

 

        We look forward to a long and continued business relationship.

          I have regularly used Carlisle Business Supplies and would thoroughly recommend them.

 

         They have supplied furniture for my staffroom and teachers’ PPA room; chairs & tables for classrooms; seating

         and furniture for children’s reading areas and library and numerous items for two offices.

         From the initial enquiry, planning meeting, quotation, order, then delivery and installation, the service has

         always been excellent and the quality of products outstanding.

 

         They have save me a great deal of time and provided ‘best value’ for the school budget.

          I suspect if someone had taken the time to explain the requirements needed when deciding upon

From the initial consultation, design, drawings, colour options and plans.

 

The furniture as promised arrived on time and was assembled on site. The installation service was fast, efficient and very pofessional. The quality of the product was outstanding !  Having the the furniture installed saved us time and ensured the work was done properly.

 

The installation team were friendly and the work was to a high standard....An excellent job, delivered on time, on budget and with a smile, they even took away all the waste and packaging away to be recycled.

Hi Stuart , I wanted to say a BIG thank you to you and your team for all that you have done to improving our working environment with the plans and new furniture.

It was a pleasure dealing with you right from our initial meeting. You gave us valuable advice on how to make the best of the office space and your subsequent support throughout the process with all my various questions and amendments was very much appreciated.

Your installation team (Doug Gemmell and Alan Cartwright) arrived on site and got the desking and drawers sorted out quickly and cheerfully with minimal distruption to our business.

Thank you very much for all your help and I look forward to continuing to work with you and your team in the future.

Please pass on my thanks to all those people who helped make this happen

I have ordered from Carlisle Business Supplies for a number of years now.

We have always found the service first class.

Nehal and the team are always willing to help with any issue and delivery is always prompt..next day !

Even on the odd occasion where we have made a mistake with our order they have always rectified it for us, they always go the extra mile with customer service. I could not recommend them more highly , they are a great team.

I class Nehal more of a friend than a stationery supplier.

I was contacted approximately 3 years ago by a very pleasant lady named Nehal from CBS asking about suppliers that we used and would we be interested in viewing their catalogue.  We decided to give them a try and have not looked back since. 

Everyone you deal with are so pleasant and helpful.  I can ring up Nehal with a half description and she knows exactly what I mean and it arrives the next day.  The deliveries are prompt and delivered with a smile by the driver. 

We have since acquired another property and required new office furniture.  CBS were contacted and they were so helpful with the planning and ordering of all the new office furniture.  On delivery their team arrived to assemble everything and lay it all out.  All we had to do was sit down when it was finished! 

The costs supplied are competitive and therefore our company will continue to purchase from Carlisle Business Supplies.

We have been using the Carlisle Business Services on-line ordering facility since starting up an account with them in 2009. It’s so easy to use, quick, hassle free and because of the confirmation email that follows each order and the stored orders on the website, it makes it easy to follow a ‘paperless’ trail if anything needs to be checked off.

It’s really convenient having all of our prices ready to view and products easy to find on-line.

Another great thing for us is that as I order for different departments, the ability to set up cost control codes which means you can always keep a good track on what spending is relevant to the departments.

Really pleased with the whole system – works great for us in Durham !

We have been using Carlisle Business Supplies on-line ordering for a number of years now, and one of the best things we like about it is that it is so quick and easy to use. Every item is easy to find whether you use the item code, description or a key word. We also like the ability to compare products instantly...this is really beneficial to us. We know what price we will pay at the outset, and these factors combined with the personal service is brilliant, and if we get stuck we can always pick up the phone and talk to their web support team.

 

For an expanding company such as ours, we will see the benefit of being able to have delivery and costs allocated to our regional offices, but still keep our office supplies and furniture budget controlled through our main office at Dalston.

 

We have a first class partnership with CBS and look forward to dealing with them in the future.

No more searching through catalogues for items, the CBS web site allows us to simply key in a product code or description and let the site find it for you !

This is a quick and easy to user friendly web site, with confirmation of your orders e-mailed straight back to you for your reference. I would highly recommend it.

Thank you for the excellent services you have provided us with over the last 14 months.

We sent out an invitation to tender for all our office supplies to several suppliers including nationals. Taking a closer look at the analysis of the tenders we received, showed that CBS could satisfy our requirements without compromising on quality or service levels. This and your attention to detail to orders and helpful advice when required to stationery, furniture & machines has resulted in us being 100% satisfied.
