Moving and storage companies

The dynamic nature of the South African economy means that both domestic and business relocation are facts of life. In this environment choosing a service provider from a long list of moving and storage companies can be challenging. In choosing a service provider in this sector of the economy one should be aware of several factors which would indicate that the moving and storage company is able to render a professional service. Amongst these factors are; the size of the company’s fleet, the vehicle’s state of maintenance, the company’s infrastructure, as well as its ability to effect trans border moves. Should you, as a client require that goods be stored at any point during the transportation process an examination of the company’ storage facilities, as well as their track record in the area of logistics management might be useful.

The moving and storage companies of South Africa are for the most part extremely professional; however a good rule of thumb is to request references prior to the work being undertaken. Depending on the types of goods being moved the company should be able to offer a variety of specialized vehicles suitable for the job at hand. The requirements for the bulk transport of, for instance wheat are very different to the requirements for coal, for example. If the relationship between your business (for instance in import and export) and the moving and storage company is intended to be a long term one it is essential that the service provider has a fleet that can cope with your businesses future growth.

If you are contemplating a relocation or moving house, rather than employing a moving company for business purposes, like import and export of goods, then your moving and storage company should be able to offer advice of a different kind. In this case your moving company will be able to offer you advice on how to pack your goods, how to plan your move and how to reduce your stress levels on the day of the move. For either business or personal moving make sure that you are dealing with professionals.
