Serviced City Pads called to the rescue following recent crane accident in Liverpool

Serviced City Pads, the Liverpool based serviced apartment booking company was called into action last week following the accident at Chandlers Wharf, Liverpool, where a crane toppled into 2 of the 4 buildings that make up the residential apartment development known as Chandlers Wharf.


Serviced City Pads, the largest of Liverpool’s serviced apartment booking companies, were tasked with finding emergency accommodation (city centre serviced apartments) for more than 100 people who had been made temporarily homeless by the crane accident. Serviced City Pads were contacted by Peter Kenny of Honeybourne Kenny and Partners, managing agents at Chandlers Wharf and a client of the company.


Chris Rose, Director at Serviced City Pads commented:


“We successfully completed what was a mammoth task by the close of the day ensuring that everybody who needed somewhere to stay had a fantastic quality Liverpool city centre serviced apartment in which to stay in.


Tuesday was an incredibly busy day for us at Serviced City Pads. We were able to find serviced apartments for the last of the 110 displaced residents just after 8pm. We liaised with many of our partner operators across the city and spoke to all of the residents involved throughout the day. As a locally based business it was really rewarding to be able to help so many local people through what is undoubtedly a very stressful time for them.


I genuinely believe that no other company Liverpool could have worked through and completed a task of this size in the way that we did at Serviced City Pads, and that is a fantastic thing to be able to say. We’ve had some terrific feedback which is very gratifying.”
