an Australian firm, but I saw the opportunity
to form a New Zealand storage company
to service the expanding market here. In
typical Kiwi fashion, Storepro started in my
garage and now we are celebrating our 10th
anniversary and gearing up to move to a
bigger warehouse for the 5th time due to the
exponential growth we’ve experienced.”
Director and owner Aaron Young details the
birth of Storepro as the traditional ‘garage
start-up’. “With 15 years of experience in the
racking and storage industry, I previously
worked for a company that was acquired by
The classic go-it-alone, cavalier attitude has
helped Storepro evolve into one of the market
leading storage providers in New Zealand with
a nationwide presence and a number of large,
reputable clients as satisfied customers.

“Hi Aaron,
You’re welcome and we appreciate
the efforts you and your team have
put in over the project, particularly
having to navigate our way through
the earthquake and subsequent council
requirements. We too are very happy
with the end result and we continue to
get positive feedback.”

The business of racking and storage in New
Zealand is complicated by Mother Nature; yes
the Shaky Isles poses issues for safe storage,
case in point the Christchurch earthquakes.
Testimonial - Fisher and
Paykel Healthcare
“The Christchurch earthquakes brought storage
safety issues to the forefront of people’s
attention. Storepro have always practiced
safe installations, but after the severity of the
Christchurch events, the entire industry had
to become overtly conscious of how they built
structures at height.
“I’m writing to express my gratitude
and thanks in relation to the exceptional
performance and delivery by the team
at Storepro in our recent NZ1 warehouse
Without a doubt Storepro were the easiest
supplier we dealt with during our project
and this is largely due to the fact that
they offered a total customer solution and
employed quality staff that communicated
throughout the project. From our initial
consultation we knew Storepro were the
company to deal with. They offered a
complete package from quotation, consent,
installation, inspection and final delivery.
“There is now a vigorous compliance code
to adhere to and many warehouses without
consented racking will not be insured, which
has a severe knock-on impact for building
owners, tenants etc.”
Gone are the days of DIY racking systems,
nowadays the modern warehouse has to
be safe as well as practical, two elements
Storepro strive to achieve on every job.
All Storepro racking is tested and certified by
local independent consulting engineers and
conforms to all relevant standards including
4203 and 1170 – both very current in terms of
seismic activity. Storepro’s installation teams
are all fully compliant with current Site Safe
passports and fork-hoist tickets.
Recently, Storepro was asked to install 3,000
pallet locations at eight meters high on Class
D soil in Wellington which has the highest
seismic zone factor in New Zealand and it was
the only supplier capable of achieving this
standard. Storepro also managed to complete
the install within just five days, ahead of
schedule for it’s client.
Dealing with Storepro was easy; all the
staff were well presented, professional,
courteous, responsive and adaptable to any
request from Fisher & Paykel Healthcare
– no matter what the request, we had
nothing but great response from the team
at Storepro.

hold stock on-site in NZ ready to start a
project at any time. For Fisher & Paykel
Healthcare, this meant we could begin
implementation from the date we signed
off the contract and run our project
concurrently with many other subcontractors. As a result, we were able to
reduce our off-site storage facility costs
earlier than expected which again was an
added bonus of dealing with Storepro as
competitors could not offer this service.
The installation process was excellent, the
team were well mannered, efficient, and
acted in a safe and productive manner
throughout the project. The team would
always report in and keep us informed
and though good project management by
Storepro, we didn’t have to worry at any
stage of our project.
Storepro’s cost break-down was 100
percent transparent and the payment plan
was very reasonable. They delivered our
project on budget and before the deadline
requested and took care of all aspects of
our project including the consents process.
I wish to thank everyone at Storepro for
the fantastic job done in our facility. I will
be highly recommending Storepro and
using them for any future projects.”

Testimonial – Ateco
“We are now nicely settled in our new
building – all the hard work from my
team and yours has come up with a
fantastic result. I must admit, I had
misgivings that any supplier could
contemplate such a project within the
tight time frame our company gave; but
you came through with flying colours, to
the delight of our CEO.
I found the difference between Storepro
and other prospective suppliers was the
way you comprehend our needs, and
thought outside the square to get the
job done.
Marc and Ron were excellent to deal
with and showed a great deal of
patience when I made some last minute
alterations to the design. I’m aware that
Marc worked after hours to ensure each
part of the project was ready on time;
and that you and Aaron were prepared
to become personally involved also – so
many thanks to you both.
Please pass on my thanks to all of
your team for a job that exceeded
expectations; you will be our preferred
racking supplier as our business
expands, and of course I would
highly recommend you to any
prospective client.”
- Bruce McIntosh,
parts manager, Ateco
Storepro is proud to employ an in-house
maintenance and installation crew with
three work vans on the Auckland roads
at any given time. This represents another
competitive edge over competitors
who frequently use sub-contractors to
complete their work, losing any ability
to set a company standard or work to a
consistent level.
“We employ all the staff in-house and
we’re the only company who can claim to
do that.”
Holding stock can be a form of ammunition
for Storepro, whereas other companies
may have to order from overseas, Young
says. “Our Mt Wellington warehouse
consistently stocks enough steel racking to
complete a building that could hold about
10,000 pallets… which is quite a lot.”
Free measure, free quote
and free consultation
Storepro offer any interested clientele to
approach and take advantage of its free
measure, free quote and free consultation.
“I genuinely believe we would be the quickest
in the industry at tending to quotes and
measure. We attend to the matter fast and
have paper work in front of the client as
soon as possible, it’s all part of the Storepro
service,” Young says.
The next time you find yourself racking your
brains about storage issues, think of the
professionals – New Zealand owned and
operated Storepro; it doesn’t just think outside
of the box, it’s the company that makes more
fit inside it! AT
