Moving With The Times – Dawson Moving & Storage Offer A New Age Removalist And Storage Solution
Glen Mackay, company manager remembers the inventory of most residential homes in the 70's to include a single, 27- inch television set, small wardrobe units, humble two seater sofas with armchairs and single beds for most young adults. "Decades ago, a full load would take up half the space on our trucks. Items were smaller, more durable and people seemed to have less."
Now, in 2018, a typical move includes; two to three flat screen televisions, a family size sofa with a chaise, multiple king or queen-sized beds and an abundance of indoor and outdoor luxury furniture items. To accommodate, Dawson Moving & Storage have added larger trucks to their growing fleet as well as extra protective equipment and ongoing staff training to ensure the safe transportation of their customers valuable furniture and goods.
Interestingly, it is not just the amount of contents that has changed in time, but also the durability of household goods. "Electronic items; computers, home office equipment, fridges and modern furniture are made from fragile materials like glass, MDF, touchscreens, stainless steel, which lend themselves to breakage and damage if not handled correctly," add Mackay. "We annually review our handling procedures to ensure we are applying the most effective techniques."
With more wannabe, inexperienced moving companies claiming cheaper deals for great service, thousands of damage complaints get lodged and unresolved every year. Many young guys think having a truck and some manpower is enough to promote themselves as removalists, but the truth is, comprehensive training and experience counts in the removals industry.
The increase in apartment dwellers since the 70's has also impacted the logistical considerations when orchestrating a local move, with lift access, building access and parking, all requiring careful planning.
It's an initiative that may sound simple, but it is having tremendous success for both the removalists and customers of Dawson Moving & Storage; free in-home pre-removal inspections. "Today knowledge is power and knowing exactly what each move entails before the big day, helps our team perfectly plan a smooth, efficient and new generation move for our customers," explains Mackay, "it also give us the opportunity to arrange any additional services that our customer need."
