Free2Move on the Move – Our New Location
Free2Move is on the move… we have a new location.
It’s been just over 6 months since Free2Move made the big move. We left our old premises in Mt Hawthorn for our new home at 150 Vincent Street, North Perth.
Jodie Krantz, Principal Physiotherapist and proprietor of Free2Move spent a long time looking for the right premises for our little practice to call home. At one time she made a bid for the property at 97 Scarborough Beach Road. She’d been practicing there since 2008 after moving her business from Bunbury to the big city of Perth, Western Australia. Sadly Jodie’s offer was not accepted and a dental practitioner bought the old building in Mt Hawthorn. We were lucky enough to have a couple of years grace before having to find new digs. Jodie spent this time avidly researching and canvassing various properties in the Mt Hawthorn/North Perth areas. Being a stickler for quality, location and the right amenities, Jodie found it quite a challenge and the clock was ticking!
Finally one day Jodie’s partner Ben was chatting to a fellow composer and friend about the trouble they were having finding the right place for Free2Move. His friend announced that they were thinking of converting the front part of their 112 year old Mt Lawley style home into a business. Discussions and negotiations ensued. A partnership was born which over the next 6 months was realised as our new premises at 150 Vincent Street, North Perth.
During the transition period we were able to continue to see clients with very little disruption to service. Thanks to our wonderful team of staff the move itself went very smoothly. We closed our doors in Mt Hawthorn on 16th Dec 2015, packed up and moved on 17th December. By 3rd January 2016 we reopened for business in our elegantly renovated building in North Perth.
Our now not-so-new premises are just lovely. We have new floating wooden floors throughout; a deep veranda filled with lovely pot plants; long bay windows in the practice room that let in just the right amount of softened light. The old original style of the house has been maintained with beautiful high ceilings, led light doors and windows and gold painted ornate architraves and ceiling roses.
Our staff love working at 150 Vincent Street. It’s a great location just across the road from beautiful Hyde Park. There are excellent cafes within walking distance in all directions and just the feel of the house, it’s vibe makes being at work each day a real pleasure.
