Relocators has moved into a new home.
Unlike the clientele that it provides moving, storage, estate sale and clean-out services to, Relocators has never truly had a place to call home.
That all changes this April, when the company moves into it’s newly purchased, multi-million dollar corporate headquarters on Kennedy Drive Hauppauge, right off the Long Island Expressway.
“It feels really good and whole,” said Relocators’ owner Robert Esposito. “This facility finally gives us our very own home. That makes it feel the most complete. We can use our home – our headquarters as a base to model the business the way we want it, and grow exponentially in the years to come.”
It’s been a long and highly successful journey that began in 2008 with one $4,000, 14-foot box truck that was stored in a gas station parking space. By 2011, there were three rented parking spaces, with an additional dump truck and 24-foot box.
Every year or two after that, Relocators purchased additional trucks, and by September 2013, moved into its current 3,500-square-foot facility, where office space was added. A year later, Relocators doubled its space again by renting available space next door to use for storage.
Challenges running four revenue streams under one roof, issues with storage, office space and parking necessitated a more permanent move.
“We realized we ran out of space when the office started becoming tight with increased staff, and when it became more difficult to maneuver our trucks to get them on the road every morning,” Esposito said. “Our storage space is completely filled. We went from one $4,000 truck in 2008 to owning a multi-million dollar facility with six trucks and one franchisee, who has two additional trucks.”
The new, 10,000-square-foot facility sits on an acre of land. Half of the building will be dedicated storage, with the remaining space being used for offices. There also will be plenty of room to park trucks, with additional parking spaces for staff and visitors.
The new facility will serve Relocators well as it grows into the future. It’s good to finally be home.
