clothing collections CTR’s modern fleet of fully licensed, well-maintained collection vehicles (and auxiliary vans for out-of-sequence special collections) make daily calls at both charity shops and textile banks. Our hi-ab textile bank transporter/installer and pool vehicles are closely inspected and maintained to provide cover for breakdowns and other unforeseen problems. A quick call to our emergency telephone number can respond to any eventuality.
