New Kone lifter – ‘checkmate’ for Perth’s Chess Moving

Feb 28, 2018
Kim Moseley, Managing Director of Chess Moving in Perth, Western Australia, wanted to give the team a real lift - so what better way than by adding a new Kone container lifter to the fleet!

Kim said, “The removals industry is both capital and people intensive. If you have a great team - and we do - you are on the road to success. The removals industry is absolutely a people business from top to bottom, add the best tools to help your team to be both efficient and effective, and your business will be on the road to be a winner.”

He continued, “In the removals industry there are many competing uses of capital. As a business owner, you have to consider where the best use of that capital should be. The investment in the Kone offers many benefits - one is a safer and more comfortable environment for our operators. A second factor is the Kone’s ability to effortlessly move and stack containers. The Kone can easily move 40’ containers, which are the workhorse of international moves. It can also stack 9’6” containers three high, it’s the hardest working piece of machinery we have.”

Adding the Kone to the fleet means that Chess can increase the density of containers in the Perth depot and better utilise the available space in the yard.

“The Perth business is a very busy operation. At any one time we have over 200 containers on site,” said Kim. “We are close to the major centres of Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia and Japan. Interestingly though we service over 150 countries around the world through our Harmony Relocation Network.”

Much of Chess Moving’s work is into Europe, particularly the UK, as well as other markets including South Africa, the USA and New Zealand.
