Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

The business can expand into the mini-mover market as well as increase in size to accommodate larger loads on longer hauls. We have grown the business to a level which is comfortable for us to manage as owners/driver/managers. For a younger person there is still a lot of scope to expand the business into other avenues, if they so wish.

We have also transported rooibos tea for farmers to the various market and with a healthy wine/vineyard industry in the area you can certainly offer your services to these as well. We have preferred to focus only on home and office moves.

There is one larger operator in the region. We are the only medium operator locally and several small operators which we regularly refer work to, or collaborate with on larger moves and when we need shuttle movers.
