AGS Frasers is an international removals and storage company dealing with and storing motor vehicles of all kinds. In 1998, they commissioned Barpro Storage to design and install 3 cantilevered STORAX mobile bases to accommodate 84 cars in their Midrand warehouse. By 2011, this storage was no longer sufficient, and they approached Barpro once again for an expansion solution.

AGS Frasers is an international removals and storage company dealing with and storing motor vehicles of all kinds. In 1998, they commissioned Barpro Storage to design and install 3 cantilevered STORAX mobile bases to accommodate 84 cars in their Midrand warehouse. By 2011, this storage was no longer sufficient, and they approached Barpro once again for an expansion solution.

With a new and larger warehouse now available, the client hoped to relocate their existing STORAX bases and add more of the same. In addition to this, they also required some fixed racking to further increase their capacity.

During the planning phase of this project, it was found that the existing bases were too short for the new store, 3 sets of columns needed to be accommodated, and the warehouse floor had subsided in one corner.

To overcome these challenges, the floor was re-laid (with an additional concrete slab on top to prevent future degradation), and our team extended the client’s existing STORAX bases and adjusted the design to fit around the warehouse’s columns. We also added 3 additional mobile bases and some fixed racking to optimise all the available space.

At the end of the day, the original 84-vehicle capacity was increased to 312. The client’s logistics manager at the time, Cullen Smith, remarked that working with Barpro had been a pleasure from the outset, and that our team had not only delivered on time, but also within budget.

Testimonial

“Working with BARPRO towards the end of 2014 to service and correct the current car storage racking was an absolute delight. Extremely professional, informed and efficient service is what we received. Big thanks to Technical Director, Mike Vermeulen in particular.”
