Auction Logistics and Gosselin Moving join forces
In cooperation with Gosselin Moving, Auction Logistics moved around 700 lots from the various CM departments in Hasselt to the ground floor level. Belgium’s largest insurance fund, Christelijke Mutualiteit (CM), is moving to a new location, and sold the furnishings via an online auction organized by Troostwijk Auctions.
“People expected the pick-up of furniture to be problematic for most buyers since private individuals usually don’t have specialized moving materials just lying around in their homes. Troostwijk contacted Gosselin to safely and responsibly load the furniture and avoid any damage to the building,” according to Patrick Puts of Auction Logistics.
“Thanks to the moving plan Gosselin prepared in advance, which involved making clear agreements about the organization of the move with our partner, we were able to complete the sale with a good feeling. Devised in advance, this solution enabled the buyers to bid with confidence, and reassured them that their goods would be disassembled and transported in the right way.”
“This also maximized the auction proceeds for our partner. Thanks to the professionalism and flexibility of Gosselin employees on location, all of the on-site problems were immediately solved, and in a creative manner. Our partner was also very satisfied with Gosselin’s work.”
“We will absolutely call on Gosselin again in the future for similar projects,” according to Troostwijk Auctions. And CM shares this sentiment. “From the very beginning, Gosselin Logistics proved it was the ideal partner for both the seller and the buyer. We really enjoyed the complete service that took all the worries off our hands. Gosselin was an indispensable link between the auctioneer, seller and buyer. This cheerful point of contact on-site was an added bonus that is definitely welcome during a busy move. We’ll take another round of Gosselin any day!”
