Watkins Kent, Removalists Tasmania Launched in Launceston by Tasmanian State Treasurer Peter Gutwein
6th November, 2014
Watkins Kent, Removalists Tasmania was launched in Launceston on Monday 20 October, by Tasmanian State Treasurer Peter Gutwein, Graham Kent (Kent Relocation Group Executive Chairman), and Timothy Irwin (Kent Relocation Group CEO); celebrated under the banner of Watkins Kent Removals & Storage in Launceston and Hobart, Tasmania.
The launch of Watkins Kent Removals & Storage in Tasmania is the culmination of the Kent Relocation Group’s acquisition of local Tasmanian removalists, Watkins Removals and Storage.
More than 25 Watkins Kent employees, former Watkins management (brothers Max and Kevin Watkins), and a host of local Tasmanian media, joined Gutwein and Kent’s senior management for a celebratory BBQ, followed by a champagne toast, dedicated to the success of Watkins Kent moving and storage in Tasmania.
Acquisition of Watkins Removalists in Hobart and Launceston, Tasmania a ‘Natural Fit’ for Kent Removals & Storage
Graham Kent (Kent Removals & Storage Executive Chairman) made an inspiring presentation, highlighting the ‘natural fit’ between the two, long standing family removals companies, both of which share down-to-earth values based on providing great value and superior customer service.
Donning the new Watkins Kent removalists uniform, Graham confirmed that the acquisition of Watkins Removalists in Hobart and Launceston reflects Kent’s confidence in the Tasmanian economy, and in the long standing reputation of Watkins as a trusted and reliable Tasmanian removalist firm.
A family-run removals and storage company with more than 70 years of experience across Tasmania, Watkins Removals and Storage had branches in both Hobart and Launceston. These two branches have been re-branded as Watkins Kent Removals & Storage, with existing Watkins employees retained.
The success of Watkins Removals and Storage over the last 70 years has been due to its commitment to excellence in customer service, and its long-standing heritage as a family-run moving business.
Watkins’ values, and heritage as a family-run Tasmanian removals business, are a perfect fit for Kent Removals & Storage. Kent was founded over 70 years ago by KL Kent, based on his personal values of honesty, care, and service excellence. Today, these values are still at the heart of the Kent Removals & Storage business, which is now the largest family-owned removals, relocation and storage company in Australia, employing more than 500 people.
Kent Removals & Storage is committed to building on the already considerable strengths of Watkins and growing within the Tasmanian removalists market, so that it can better service its Tasmanian and national customers. Kent will continue to uphold Watkins’ unrivalled commitment to customer service across Tasmania for years to come.
Watkins Kent Removals & Storage Tasmania will offer a comprehensive range of removals and secure storage services, for safe, affordable, stress-free moves across Tasmania.
