Office Removals Tailor-made for Your Business

One only tends to think of how much is contained within the walls of today’s modern offices once it is time to begin planning and executing a move to new premises, entailing the packing, removal, loading, transporting and unpacking of everything again on the other side.

The mind boggles at such an enormous, daunting task. Moving offices is not an endeavour to which employees look forward to, unless one takes the wise route and engages a professional removal company, which specialises in this field.


We are just such a concern and we are most certainly firmly focussed on relocating businesses and factories. Our staff training, infrastructure, vehicles and operating network throughout South Africa are specifically geared to this end.

All relocations are professionally managed, right from the first contact with customers and throughout the detailed process. A central contract project manager is appointed to each client for the duration of the project, irrespective of its length of time, bearing in mind that certain concerns with multiple national outlets may require an extended period, in order to accomplish their relocation in total.


Nevertheless, your contract manager engages closely and continuously with the applicable facilities’ managers at the premises which you are leaving and those to which you are moving, as well as they key people within your organisation and other external role players. It is vital to keep everything coordinated and all relevant persons on the same page at the same time.

However, it all begins with comprehensive site visits, so that you are provided with an accurate quote and a precise, tailor-made moving plan, without which the entire process would be an exercise in chaos.

No Two are Identical

Each project is unique and so is the range of services that we provide, but we believe in being well prepared and ready for each phase, so that everything fits together, combines and flows seamlessly. An accurate site evaluation ensures that our experienced teams are properly prepared and equipped with all of the materials and equipment that they require.

Typical Office Contents

  • Desks and chairs – individual or modular. Some such items may require dismantling in order to move them and then later reassemble.
  • Reception, outdoor and relaxation area furniture.
  • Computers, fragile IT equipment, photocopiers and fax machines.
  • Communication equipment.
  • Shelves, cabinets, bulk filing systems, files, documents and storage systems.
  • Screens and partitions.
  • Crockery and kitchen appliances, small and large, particularly a refrigerator.
  • Artworks, ornaments and décor elements.
  • Cleaning equipment.
  • Canteen furniture.


All such items require careful handling and/or specialised packing materials, whilst those which are too heavy to be carried manually must be moved using equipment designed for this purpose. Doorways, entrances and exits must be able to accommodate whatever aids are necessary, and movers need to be aware of potential obstacles before the actual move ensues.

Anticipate and Avoid Problems

A trained eye is required in order to anticipate problems before they occur, and if all aspects of relocation are not your business, it is virtually impossible to do so. We have the expert capabilities to pack, handle, load and transport your valuable furniture and equipment securely and safely.

Our vehicle fleet is fitted with tail lifts for safe loading and offloading. Air suspension features on all cargo vehicles, invaluable on roads which are all too often in less than prime condition, and all trucks are also equipped with advanced tracking systems.

Industry Leaders

As one of the leaders in our highly competitive industry, we pride ourselves on our sterling reputation and the extremely low incidence of insurance claims that we have submitted over many years in operation. Our record ensures that our valued customers have complete confidence and peace of mind, knowing that their possessions are expertly handled and delivered to their offices safe, sound and intact.

In addition to offering complete planning, routing, distribution, office and IT logistics solutions, we are also able to provide customers with secure document storage and warehousing facilities, should they require these additional services.

At your Destination

Prior to the arrival of your possessions at the new destination, your IT and communication connection points, space planning and office decorating will have been finalised by the designated project manager and your key decision-makers.

IT rigging experts will ensure that your systems are up and running soon after arrival, whilst documents will be systematically unpacked by the time your employees arrive to resume their duties. All they and you need to do is get to work as per usual, delighted that the office removal is completed, hassle-free.
