Elliott’s Specialised Storage Services is a Cut Above the Rest

At times, we just want to get something out of the way. The sooner it is done, the sooner we can move on with our lives. This approach only works with things that are not important, however. A decision can be judged as important or irrelevant based on the impact it will have on our lives. And a major decision includes choosing between several options on a shortlist of moving companies.

Not all moving companies are alike. The one you choose will play a major role in whether your move is successful or not, so it is not a decision that should be made lightly. The best moving companies in South Africa (and the world) are several leagues above the rest in that they offer something the others do not – experience and expertise. South Africa’s top moving companies generally offer bespoke services that smaller or less experienced companies cannot. One such service is Elliott’s range of short, medium and long-term storage options for your various possessions, from temporarily storing your furniture before a move to long-term storage of your most prized valuables. Our storage facilities are a cut above the rest.

This article provides insight into why Elliott is one of South Africa’s top moving companies and why our specialised storage facilities play an important role in that.

Why Elliott is One of South Africa’s Top Moving Companies

Elliott did not spring into existence overnight. We have committed to building our excellent reputation over 75 years while slowly expanding our service capacity as well as our range of services. From our humble beginnings as a small company operating out of a garage with just a few trucks to being an internationally recognised and accredited removal company, we have always strived to provide the best services for our customers. We are one of South Africa’s top moving companies because we know what we are doing and we have been doing it for a long time.

Our desire for excellence has resulted in the accumulation of our extensive service offerings below, from general removal services to specialised storage and fine art relocation services:

  • Local moves
  • International moves
  • Office moves
  • Storage facilities
  • Commercial logistics
  • Fine art relocation
  • Pet relocation
  • Vehicle transport
  • Removal insurance

The Difference Good Storage Facilities Can Make for Your Fine Art Collection

While Elliott started as a company that organised smaller and more local moves, we have become well-known for our expert storage services in addition to our relocation services. We have recognised the need for general and special storage facilities within our client base and realise that safe and secure transportation and storage methods are not always similar for all items.

We take great care when it comes to moving and storing everything our clients entrust to us, but certain items require strict moving and storage protocols. One cannot store a valuable collector’s art piece in a regular storage facility and guarantee the preservation of its pristine condition and worth. Fine art needs to be guarded and taken care of to ensure that its value as an investment is maintained. Your choice of storage facility will thus play a major role in the continued existence and value of your investment. In some cases, art investors may prefer to refrain from openly displaying their purchased assets as the risk of damage and theft is increased. Keeping these items safe in a special storage facility is thus the only risk-reducing option.

Elliott offers specialised and highly secure storage facilities to keep your fine art collection safe. Our number one priority is to ensure that your art collection leaves our care in the same condition as when we received it. We use state-of-the-art technology such as air conditioning and climate control to regulate temperature and humidity (both of which can wreak havoc on art), security measures such as 24/7 CCTV monitoring and highly restricted access, not to mention special storage containers that can keep your works of art free of dust and particulate matter.

In addition to being fully equipped to store your fine art collection, we also offer storage solutions for your other valuable possessions, such as vintage cars, potted plants, carpets and rugs, and more.
