Five Ways We Can Help Your Contracting Firm With Business Accommodation

 By Linda Anderson-Smith

You get a call from a member of your team…

Him and three other members of the group are stuck on the road and going to be late.

Two of the guys have got the wide-load vehicle stuck in the car park, the gates of which are too small.

And with traffic how it is on the B-road between the hotel and the site – it’s going to take at least an hour to get there anyway.

This is an all too familiar experience for many contractors.

And we fully understand organising business accommodation for contracting teams can be a real pain.

That’s why we recommend – when it comes to arranging hotels for big jobs off site – the first thing you should do is call us here at Rapid.

We can take care of everything for you, make things as cost-effective as possible and save you an absolute ton of time.

For one, we can sort out…


One of the biggest problems we find our contracting clients run into is parking.

Parking at a hotel often isn’t ample enough, it costs extra or, worse, it’s not even onsite and you have to walk ten minutes down the road.

When you organise your business accommodation with us here at Rapid, we’ll always make sure the parking onsite is fit for purpose and your team know exactly where they’re going.

It’s also imperative that tools are safe guarded when parked for the night – we take all of this into consideration.

After parking, another big problem is…

Organising Rooms Together

This is something that often gets overlooked, but can cause a real problem if it’s not done right.

We’ll always look to get everyone in rooms close by so everything is able to run smoothly and on time.

Still, even if the whole team is together, you need to make sure the accommodation itself is in a good place…

Location to Site

For many contractors, this is the single most important element when it comes to booking business accommodation.

Minimising the travel time between accommodation and the site can save a huge amount of time on a job, so the location is crucial.

To make sure we’re able to get you the best location for your accommodation, just let us know where you need to be, where the job is and we’ll do our best to find the most ideal options.

And that’s not all we’ll do…

Coordinating the Team

If there’s a fair few people on the job, it’s critical everyone has details of where they’re staying, any booking details they need, and the times and directions.

Here at Rapid, we can keep on top of all of that for you.

Just let us know who needs to be included and we’ll co-ordinate everything for you. It’s just another way we can help make your life easier.

In fact, on that note…

Consolidating Invoices

Another little thing but one that just makes organising and accounting for your accommodation that bit easier.

Rather than having every member of a team having to put individual room bookings and invoices through accounts, we can consolidate everything for you so all your business expenses are clean and clear.

Bottom line is, when it comes to organising your contractor accommodation…

We’ll do everything we can to make sure you don’t need to worry about a thing.
