Office Relocation Solutions: A specialist company trialing a different truck height
Modifications to trucks for the particular type of business in which they’re going to be used is something that’s always of interest as it seems the changes are only limited by the imagination.
A business that specialises in office and commercial relocations obviously has a need for rear tail lifts but to obtain the greatest level of effectiveness, this company has had one of its latest purchases lowered to improve accessibility to office buildings & loading docks.
Such is the case with Office Relocation Solutions operated by Andrew Tait.
The business recently purchased its 10th Isuzu - seven currently in the fleet.
Andrew says that apart from the reliability and ease of driving, a feature that he has been particularly pleased with about Isuzu trucks is the fact that he has experienced good resale value.
“One thing that impresses me is that our Isuzu’s have held their values well,” he said.
“When you have a fleet of trucks, a business needs to be conscious of this as you are always going to be moving a truck on either as a result of the mileage it has done or changing needs. Our trucks are a really important asset to us and having a good resale value is an important issue when deciding what make we’re going to use”.
Reliability and ready access to servicing is also a must that Andrew’s business absolutely has to have as the trucks are on the road constantly.
“Our job is to relocate businesses. This is what we specialise in – not the relocation of home furniture but, by and large, businesses of all types.
“Businesses that are relocating rely on us to arrive promptly and be efficient with the task of dismantling and loading their items – and likewise with the delivery and installation at the other end,” he said.
Andrew explained that his latest truck has been lowered to a height of 2.8metres for a good reason.
It is going to make it so much easier to gain access to premises and under building loading docks– such as CBD office towers where the standard height furniture van has difficulty accessing - which results in having to load and off-load quite a hike away from the point where the relocation is either coming from or going to. The lower truck height solves this problem & ultimately improves efficiency.
With respect to relocations the business handles a huge range of work – from relocating items for fitting out hotels, to the conventional office, to warehouses and libraries – everything that comes into the category of commercial/business.
Andrew has been in the relocation industry for 35 years and in the more specialised field of Commercial/business moves for the last 22 years.
“I have found it not just more interesting, but more challenging.
“We’ve had to learn a lot of specific skills and have invested in a huge amount of specialist equipment over the years, the reduced height vehicle is an extension of this, so we can cater better for our client’s needs. This has stood us in good stead as being specialists there is a strong demand for our services,” he says.
