Uniquely Hilldrup Move: Our Atlanta Office and Warehouse

Since 2007, Hilldrup Atlanta has been helping families, professionals and businesses move. Recently, it was Atlanta’s turn to move… ourselves! Our team began searching towards the end of 2018 for a facility that would offer more space for both our employees and our customers’ belongings alike. Fast-forward one year and 1,300 pallet positions later, and we’ve successfully embraced the challenge of moving our team and assets with minimal disruption. It’s just one more example of how every move we handle is truly Uniquely Hilldrup!

Providing one of the best places to work for our employees and an award-winning experience for our customers are both at the heart of our organization. And that comes down to having plenty of space. Between wanting to offer enough square footage of space for our clients’ items to be stored safely, to creating an efficient workspace for our team, the size and location of the new facility was critical.

Originally located in Lawrenceville, GA, our warehouse space in the Atlanta area now totals 90,000 square feet with 7,000 square feet of humidity and temperature-controlled storage. Previously, Hilldrup Atlanta offered 62,500 square feet total and 4,000 square feet of controlled storage in total. As far as mileage for the move, our team ended up moving just down the road – in fact, only two miles away to Dacula, GA!

And yet, whether moving two miles or 20,000 miles down the road, our team applies the same plan of action.

“While we weren’t moving too far in distance, the move created a huge upgrade in Hilldrup Atlanta’s overall facility,” explained Ed Haeussler, VP and General Manager, Atlanta. “We knew the move had the potential to impact employees because we were changing where we’ve always been so we wanted to keep that in mind and make sure employees wouldn’t be negatively impacted.”

The biggest challenge however, was the volume of the move and the planning it required. Our team ensured that all departments – whether office staff or operations personnel – were able to operate as usual.

“This move required 150 loads of product, between office items, [Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment] FF&E, customer vaults and pallets,” explained Ed. “We needed to disassemble and then reassemble racks for the warehouse as well. We handled the logistics of all that while still taking care of our number one priority – our customers.”

By the Numbers:

  • 810 storage units moved
  • 1,300 pallet divisions moved
  • 2 miles of distance between old and new location
  • 62,500 square feet of storage space
  • 4,000 square feet of humidity and temperature-controlled storage space

While the final to-dos of the move are being completed – installing more security systems and technologies around the office – the move experience couldn’t have been more well-strategized and executed.

“This is a new workspace that has never been occupied before,” said Ed. “Employees have been settling in to the new space and are extremely happy and impressed.”

It takes a team that is truly Uniquely Hilldrup to complete such a move with as much strategic planning, organization and diligence as our team to keep business moving forward. Congratulations, Hilldrup Atlanta!

Our team is finalizing some additional details – including the placement of racking in the new space. We couldn’t be more excited about our upgraded storage offerings in our new facility!

 

Thank you to the Hilldrup Atlanta team who truly made this move possible with little disruption to keeping business moving for our employees and customers!
