Podit was born in a background of a history of leasing industrial space. My grandfather, Boet du Plessis, started letting industrial space in Upington in 1963. From him I learnt a few business fundamentals:
- Do not try to get rich overnight.
- Surround yourself with honest people.
- Keep your word and deliver what you promise.
- Show integrity by taking responsibility. Admit your mistakes.
- Respect your employees.
- Pay attention to your environment.
From my family business I realised that a sense of history will ensure sustainability and from this rental environment the idea of smaller rental units was born.
Vision: Podit for People and Planet
Industry experience taught us that easy-access and secure self-storage is an ever-growing need in modern-day living. Podit's vision is twofold in nature. Podit strives to promote stability in the community by employment and to tidy our (and your) environment (homes, offices or work space) through our people.
To empower our people to make the world a better place.
To make decluttering your environment as easy as possible.
We seek to make the world a better place and support Songo in Stellenbosch. Songo.info is a social development programme based in Kayamandi, Stellenbosch. Songo strives to improve the lives of children living in the township by providing them a safe place to play, grow and develop. The songo.info organisation has grown from humble beginnings. Everything started with Songo Fipaza’s dream to uplift Kayamandi, the community that he has lived in for numerous years of his life and where he has been working hard to bring about change for his community.
Songo is on our doorstep….and what better place to start living Podit’s vision of serving our people. A business requires numbers and figures, but Podit believes it is more an arithmetical value. Podit cares and wants to serve.
If we want to make substantial steps toward sustainability, we have to turn to the real motives behind such decisions. Podit cares about our environment and animal welfare.
Storage comes from sentimental, economical or practical reasons. Podit supports a simplistic form of life - about clearing the clutter from your life and adjusting your mindset so you can live more focused and with purpose. Podit helps you to be able to dwell in a smaller place - which can be a huge cost saving factor. A minimilistic life philosophy is not only for the higher income society. If you never had anything growing up, owning anything now holds great value in your mind. Podit makes it possible for lower income people to hold on tightly to their possessions.
Podit helps in making the hands of the Stellenbosch Animal Welfare Society strong by donating and adopting. The management of Podit adopted 3 dogs and 3 cats (which give us lots of joy) from the Stellenbosch Welfare Society.
