module-subheader –> STORAGE company Network Appliance is gearing up to become a major mid-market player in Australia by building up its reseller channel. The vendor has some big names including Telstra National Australia Bank and Coles Myer as customers.

About 15 per cent of sales in Australia are made through the the company’s reseller channel. Mr Warmenhoven said there was a lot of opportunity but “we can’t afford to sell directly to mid-tier companies”. He would like about 50 per cent of sales to come through the reseller channel.

I just want to know it’s done it’s insured and all I have to do is put stuff away. ”Homeowners and businesses can do some of the light work themselves and save some big bucks say two Appleton-based movers. “The first thing you want to do is look at your budget” said Jean Long Manteufel owner of Jerry Long’s A-1 Moving & Storage. “It’s a trade-off. Do I want the least amount of work and be willing to pay for it? Or do I want the least bill and I’m willing to work for it?”Whether you’re moving crosstown or cross country it pays to check with families who’ve moved or companies who’ve moved families from out of state said Randy Kressin a sales consultant with Schroeder Moving Systems Appleton an agent for United Van Lines. “Check who in the local community they did a move for” he said. “For longer distances I think it’s important to pick someone that has a nationwide affiliation someone with agents around the country… “You don’t know who these people are coming into your home” he said. “They have the opportunity to take things and sometimes they take things. ”One important step? Never sign on with a moving company that hasn’t sent a representative to your home and never pay a deposit down he said. Expect to pay from a few hundred dollars up to about $3000 depending on the range of service distance and overall amount of time a move will take. A basic in-town move and delivery will run from $500 to $1000 said Kressin assuming you box up everything yourself. “You can easily double the cost by having the moving company carton everything for you on a local move” he said. Manteufel whose firm is an agent with North American Van Lines suggested consumers check also with the Wisconsin Movers Association to make sure firms are licensed within the state.
