Palmers expands to Melbourne

Mar 29, 2018
Sydney-based Palmers Relocations has opened a new facility in Melbourne, Victoria increasing its spread across Australia.

The new, purpose-built building has four container-high doors, high level security and a reinforced concrete yard to manage the weight of the 16-tonne forklift and containers. It is also a bonded (government approved) warehouse that the company says is essential for successfully managing imports all under one roof. “We decided not to leave anything to chance and moved into a purpose-built facility to meet these strict requirements,” said Kieran O’Hara, General Manager.

Opening a new business is a large investment in both time and capital. “Within Australia, you need a fleet of vehicles capable of travelling both into regional centres up to 400 miles away, having the capabilities of collecting and transporting 20ft and 40ft containers from the ports, and being able to service the city centres of a growing city known for its small laneways,” said Kieran. But he is confident that the strategy is right for his company. “Melbourne was opened to complement our well-established Sydney depot and service the demand of our overseas moving partners. It’s also made it easier to service South Australia and Tasmania which will allow our clients to consolidate shipments to a single location for delivery.”

Palmers has made full use of technology to help with the business expansion with Sydney providing support, allowing the new branch to focus on its operations. “This has allowed us to streamline many business functions including operations, sales and administrative duties through a single office,” said Kieran.
