Our Story

 

Furniture runs in our blood. Stemming back to the 1940s, my grandfather opened his furniture store in Bendigo, Victoria, full of enthusiasm and hope. His dream was to have his shop be the go to place for locals to buy furniture to make their house a home.

Continuing his dream, in 1966 my mum and dad opened their furniture store here in Stawell.

In its infancy, Clarks Furniture started doing a few removals with a ute and tandem trailer as a result of local demand for a removal service. This operational side of the business gradually grew until I started to work with my dad and was able to breathe fresh energy and enthusiasm into the business. In February 2005 I purchased this very modest removal business from my parents and renamed it Clark Furniture Freight Management, and thus the beginning of a new era in removals for Stawell was born.  Removals increased and very quickly an extra truck and trailer were purchased to answer the demands of this exciting business. Contacts were made and relationships quickly developed with leading international removalists, and so the opening was made to advance into international moving and logistics.

Our Family

Our Family

In July 2009 I purchased self-storage units to cater for the needs of many customers who not only needed their furniture and personal belongings moved, but also required storage.

As my parents moved to retirement in 2009 the furniture and bedding business was entrusted to me. Still, in the same location in Main Street Stawell, I now own and operate the furniture, bedding and clothing shop, the removal and freight business and self-storage sheds with my wife Anna and a team of dedicated staff.

In 2013 we were recognised by The Grampians Pyrenees Region as the winner of the Retail Business Award and received The Australian Achievers Award for Victoria’s Relocation, Removals and Storage Services winner for excellence in customer relations.

Anna and I have two beautiful young boys. Perhaps one day they will continue this family business well into the future.

To open a business is hard work. It has its ups and downs. To still have the same business 50 years on is simply astounding. We know we would not still be in this community if it wasn’t for all our customers who have shown loyalty to us over so many years.

It is because of our customers that we continue to seek the best products and improve our service.

Our purpose is simply to give our customers a smile on their face, love the experience and create a wonderful lasting memory.
