This week Segway New Zealand began the move to new premises in Auckland.
Here is a panorama photo of two corners that was taken this afternoon, shortly after the moving truck departed. Yes, there is a lot of work yet to do. This is day one of transforming our new space into a bigger and better Segway Workshop, where we hold new stock and replacement parts, service customer’s PTs, and store our own demo/hire PTs and pre-owned stock.
It may take a week or two to get everything unpacked, set up and fully organised again….when once again there will be a place for everything, and everything is in its place!
We were on Auckland’s North Shore for the last 8 years (Northcote 2005-2011, Milford 2011-13). Prior to that, Philip Bendall privately imported the first two Segway Personal Transporters (PTs) into New Zealand in September 2003 and began trading as “Segway Hire” from Tauranga soon after. In 2004 Segway New Zealand launched in Ponsonby, Auckland. We’re now located in “The Great Northwest” of the city.
Over the next six months look out for occasional posts featuring local photos as well as scans of NZ magazine articles from those early days of the “Segway Human Transporter” (as it was known back then).
