About Go Gorilla Movers

We are a young thriving company, started 1 March 2014 when owner Brad Briscoe left his old partnership within another moving company to start his own venture.

We have set teams of hard working men who are trained and skilled. The teams are polite and will attend to your requests immediately on site.

Our fleet consists of:

4 x vehicles and 4 XL moving custom built trailers, which are all fully waterproof.

  • Ford Transit
  • Fiat Ducato
  • Nissan Interstar
  • Ford Ranger Bakkie

Our four custom built trailers are 4m long by 1.8 m wide and if we need to erect the custom rain covers we have a limit of 2.2m in height. We generally fit a full 2 bedroom content in 1 van plus trailer combo.

We move many 3 to 6 bedroom homes these days and will then reserve two or three vehicles and trailer combo’s to get the move done in good time.

After spending 4 years as a lead eLearning course animator and developer, I decided spending my life in an office was just not for me. I enjoy meeting new people and human interaction and love being able to get out there and experience new things daily as this job certain does provide. 

My Entrepeneur brain was also firing on all cylinders and I needed to explore this and get my own thing started.

When I decided to make my great escape from the corporate world I joined a mate in a his moving business venture and am greatful for the lessons learnt in my time within his company. Unfortunately friendships and partners can be a difficult thing and we decided to go our own ways.

1 March 2014 I opened Go Gorilla Movers as a part time venture while I was still freelancing in the eLearning and web building world. Go Gorilla was never intended to take off as it did, but loving my new freedom and the business side to running my own thing, here we are today.

13 April 2015 Sean Dettmann came onboard and spent 3.5 years driving until he now functions as the business Operations Manager. He is also a partner and director in the business.

Having worked in Port Elizabeth for 9 years for a well respected company as a technician and verification officer in the weighing industry,  I wanted to relocate and seek new adventures in Cape Town. Brad offered me this great opportunity within this successful business and I couldn’t let it pass.

Still fresh and new but never a challenge too tough I am willing to push myself into new things and grow throughout the learning curves. Joining the company has opened me up new possibilities and I put pride and care into making things work smoothly.
