Discover how we can support secure collections and asset recovery for the police and emergency services

Do you need to move valuable and high risk items or support selling high value assets? We’re here to help.
At Crown Commercial Service (CCS) we understand that our police and emergency services customers need much more from a courier than delivering a package. That’s why we developed our Courier and Specialist Movements (RM6171) agreement. It enables customers not just to move packages from A to B, but also:
- move valuable and high risk items in a secure and compliant way
- generate value by reselling high value assets such as cars
Lot 5 of the agreement offers a managed service for explosive substances (Class 1), firearms and weapons. This gives you access to suppliers that can arrange the secure collection, delivery and disposal of items such as:
- firearms ections 1,2 and 5)
- explosives (UN Class 1)
- controlled and illegal drugs
By using our agreement you can be confident that suppliers have the right certifications, licences and security in place. For example:
- explosive certificates
- section 5 firearm licences (issued by the Home Office)
- vehicles fitted with Global Positioning Systems (GPS), immobilisers and alarms
- lockable steel cages
- temperature controlled vehicles
- secure gun crates which are sealed to form an evidence chain
- maintenance of the chain of custody
Lot 6 offers a managed service for asset recovery to help customers generate money from assets that are no longer required, or have been confiscated or seized by law enforcement and need to be disposed of.
What is an asset?
An asset can be anything you own or have confiscated, from a mobile phone or electrical device to equipment and machinery. It can even be high capital value such as property, vehicles and land.
How can suppliers help?
Our suppliers can offer an end-to-end managed service for the removal of unwanted and seized assets of all sizes and weights. In addition, they can provide asset assessment, expert advice and alternative solutions for disposing of unwanted property.
They can manage the moving, recycling, reselling, donating or securely disposing of assets.
You can donate and recycle unwanted assets, helping to meet social value targets. Or, you can resell assets with secure transportation and storage, receiving part of the monetary value. A full audit trail is provided if the asset has to be destroyed.
