Dingleton Resettlement Project - December Phase Complete

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the December move, without your professional teamwork this decision to begin moving people earlier might not have been the success it was.

A special thank you to team members in Dingleton working with the community on a day to day basis. Working so closely with the community can taxing and stressful. Pumla Titus and Tandi Reilly along with their teams have done excellent work in this regard and the rest of the Dingleton team would like to thank you for your efforts.

The Biddulphs team moved a total of 75 Kumba employees and their families, from the houses owned by Sishen mine, and 14 private homeowners and their families in November and December 2015

GUN RUN 2015

We had the pleasure of providing a tog bag service at Gun Run 2015. Congratulations to all prize winners and well done to everyone that came down to support @GunRunSA. 



Biddulphs International has once again had the privilege in assisting the movement of tog bags and other transport requirements for the 90th Comrades Marathon.

A total of eighteen thousand goodie bags were moved as well as 7500 tog bags on race day.  This was accomplished through the hard work and long hours put in by our Pietermaritzburg and Durban teams with the support of the 7 vehicles we also had in place

As one of Biddulphs team put it "A rather tiring but very rewarding day".  A special thanks to all the staff and runners for making this a special day.


Moving in Africa has its special challenges particularly for Biddulphs which is one of the few moving companies prepared to move to remote areas.  A recent move from South Africa to Zimbabwe was delayed slightly by a herd of elephants and the customer reported back as follows:

"Another one done and dusted. You truck arrived, we unpacked it and they left - all on time and just as you planned it. We are blown away by your amazing organisational abilities, I firmly believe that if it weren't for you this would never have happened.

Thank you so much.

The drivers were suitably impressed and on the way out found the road blocked by a herd of Elephant - they were last seen snapping away with their phones at the Elephant who seemed a bit unsure of the truck and it's hissing brakes."

Peter Flack, a well known hunter, conservationist and retired game rancher was contacted by the Iziko Museums of Cape Town and asked whether he would be prepared to donate to them the mounted animals in his "museum" on his old game ranch, Bankfontein, in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Biddulphs International Port Elizabeth undertook the 10 000 cubic foot move. Packing and loading took four days and delivery was completed within two days.

The personal note from Peter Flack read:

I was most impressed by the long hours you and your team worked, the dedication displayed and the calm, careful thoroughness you brought to all you did. It was a lucky day for me when I employed Biddulphs for the first time all those years ago and I am delighted to see that, despite the effluxion of time, your high standards have remained the same. I simply cannot think of moving anything anywhere without asking your company to do it for us.

Thank you again. 
Kindest regards, Peter Flack

Biddulphs has again assisted the Comrades Marathon runners with transporting their tog bags from Pietermaritzburg to Durban using a specialised labeling and control system.  This service has been provided by Biddulphs since 1984.

Assistance was also provided to the Comrades Association for the movement of fencing, pallets and water stations.

Well done to all the runners who completed this year's run!
