Since the late 1800s the name Pedemont has been associated with furniture moving and storage. Our company was established by Joe Pedemont and has always been a family business, being maintained through successive generations of the Pedemont family, thus forming one of Australia’s oldest privately-owned family businesses.
At the heart of our business are the present owners, Tony and Dell Pedemont. Tony and Dell have been running Pedemonts for over 40 years. As the fourth consecutive generation, they were aware of the reputation they were committing to uphold. In turn, they have provided uncompromised levels of service and dedication to the transport industry and it’s customers since 1978.
The introduction of the 5th generation has seen some progressive building on foundations, which have been established over the past 100 years. All five of Tony and Dell’s children are involved within our business.
Driven by changing markets and demands our company has gradually transitioned into providing bulk transport, storage and warehousing solutions for businesses.
The diversity of our business, combined with a nationwide presence, gives us the ability to provide efficiencies without sacrificing the level of service that our brand represents.
INVESTING IN A SUSTAINABLE WORKPLACE
With many of our clients’ ongoing commitments towards responsible sourcing and methods of manufacture, we’ve responded with multiple ways to support these requirements by reducing our own direct environmental impact.
Some of these practices include:
Implementation of cloud-based systems, significantly reducing paper consumption in all depots
Utilizing hybrid technology for selected vehicles
Transitioning of forklifts from fuel to electric power
Waste management - efficient recycling of cardboard and metals
Installation of sky/sun lights to all facilities
Strategic route optimisation
Carbon emission management and reporting via telematic platforms
Transition to LED lighting and efficient monitoring of electricity usage in warehouses
Prevention of single use packaging methods
These are some of the methods we have implemented over the last 20 years as we continue to look at ways we can efficiently minimise our company’s impact on the environment.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
SAFETY & COR
Safe workplaces are efficient workplaces and, as a company, we aim toward zero workplace injuries or illness. Through our ongoing commitment to workplace health and safety for our staff, contractors and visitors, we have been able to achieve below industry averages. We have done this by indoctrinating a culture of safe working processes throughout our organisation.
Our standard marine insurance policy covers the fundamentals like fire, theft, flood, collision and over-turning. For commercial sales, comprehensive insurance can be offered, based on the value of the items being insured. Speak to one of our staff members if you’d like to obtain an insurance quote or find out more.
Our experienced staff will wrap all products in quilted furniture blankets, and every single item will be handled & loaded according to the fragility, nature, size, weight & shape of each individual item.
Through our field experience & levels of communication with our ground staff, we have designed & built trolleys to suit our vehicles, along with navigating the common site access restrictions, allowing us to move quantities of sensitive products safely and swiftly.
We can negotiate another delivery day or, if you approve, we can place the delivery somewhere safe on your premises. But all this will be discussed upon our phone call to you the day prior to delivery.
