Elliott Mobility makes its biggest move yet

Aug 19, 2014
Elliott Mobility in South Africa has recently completed its largest-scale move to date – successfully moving its headquarters and warehouse to new premises in Samrand, Centurion.

The move involved 4,000 wooden storage pallets and 25,000m3 of household valuables to the new premises, along with Elliott Mobility’s entire headquarters and equipment. Elliott Mobility had spent the last three decades at its old premises in Midrand.

 

“The business environment has changed dramatically for warehousing over the last 10 years,” said Elliott Mobility’s Joint CEO, Charles Luyckx. “We felt that it was the right time to make the move to entirely new premises to keep our operation at the forefront of the industry.”

 

Prime location

Located in a secure business park just off the N1 highway, the new premises allow Elliott Mobility to optimally service two of its most critical markets – Pretoria and Johannesburg. Through the move, the company has also extended its service offerings to include commercial logistics, warehousing and distribution.

 

The new premises also offer perfect storage conditions for wine collections with a cellar that can accommodate up to 20,000 bottles.  “We are the only moving company in the country with temperature and humidity control for wine,” said Charles.

 

State-of-the-art

The 12,000m2 premises have been built to strict environmental and security standards. “The premises are highly energy efficient with natural lighting used to reduce our power demands. We have also installed motion-sensing lights throughout the office space,” explained Charles.

 

Security features include electric fencing, biometric access-control systems installed throughout the premises and 24-hour guards. “We have also invested in a custom fire-protection system consisting of smoke alarms, smoke curtains and smoke vents in the warehouse,” said Charles.

 

Walking the talk

Elliott Mobility’s in-house Office Relocation division took care of the move.  “The team handled all the logistics through incredibly sophisticated and streamlined planning and execution,” said Charles. “Our entire IT system was moved to a new, off-site platform overnight. This was without a doubt the largest operational move we have ever executed. We put our own services and systems to the test and the success and efficiency of our own move is a great testament to our service offering.”

 

Elliott says that its facilities are among the best in the world and that it is well-positioned to provide industry-leading service to its growing client base for years to come.
