Tardis Environmental UK + Curveball Solutions

CASE STUDY: A fully resilient IT Strategy

Tardis Environmental UK

Tardis Environmental have come a long way since 1991 when plasterer Chris Boydon diversified into renting portable loos to builders. Now providing portable toilet hire nationwide, as well as septic tank emptying and bulk water delivery, today the company has a turnover of £20m+, employs 180+ and owns 11 depots as well as a fleet of over 150 work vehicles. Just like us at Curveball Solutions, Tardis Environmental is a family business – Chris remains as CEO, his son Rob Boyden is Managing Director, while other family members are also Directors.

The Case in Brief

Following a cyberattack, Tardis Environmental experienced an IT outage that put them out of action for four days. Following this, the company hired a local IT company to provide additional support to their in-house IT Manager. However, they found that each support request came with extra charges.


After being hacked, Tardis Environmental faced 4 days of costly downtime, followed by unexpected extra costs from their IT Support provider.


Without a Disaster Recovery solution, they were unable to access their data and their IT support provider was costing more than expected.


Expensive and frustrating downtime, time and money wasted, negative impact on operations, customer service and profits.

Executive Assistant Director, Tardis Environmental UK
“We joined a local IT Support provider, but we found that every time we asked for support there was an additional charge. A new email address needed? That will be extra – so it didn’t work out for us.
However, since coming on board with Curveball, we pay a monthly fee and there are no extra charges. That’s it, we know where we are. It doesn’t matter at all that Curveball aren’t local – it works.”
