1990's and beyond

In 1995 Dawson's became a member of "Australian Furniture Removals Association" (AFRA) of which they are still a member today.

1997, Neville Dawson was still at the helm and controlled a staff of 96, and a vehicle fleet of 25 trucks and 8 company service vehicles. The total storage capacity had increased to 460,000 sq ft.

1998 the Tamworth depot was closed in December

1999 saw the purchase of 5 x 20' removal containers, a container forklift and the reconfiguration of a prime mover into a container truck. The "Container Era" had arrived.

2001 Neville and Johanna decided to retire from the furniture removal industry.

The company was purchased by their son Peter and his wife Bernadette. Peter started with the company in November 1982 as a mechanic after finishing his Diesel apprenticeship with a local truck dealership. Peter had worked in all aspects of the company including Maintenance, Removals, Line haul driving and moved into the office in 1989 as Operations Manager.

Dawson's have continued to expand, with the purchase of a B-Double in 2007 and the recruitment of their first subcontractor.

2009 Dawson's have 40 pieces of equipment including Prime Movers, Trucks, Trailers, Vans, and Utes, and employ 40 people from Bathurst, Sydney and Dubbo Areas.

Dawson's now have  100 x 20' containers for storage and rail transport. They also have 4 container trucks, three container forklifts (One in each depot) a truck and dog trailer and a 45' drop deck trailer, which enabled Dawson's to compete with other national companies.

Dawson's carry out deliveries of new furniture and fragile items for major department stores west of the Blue Mountains, and Household Furniture Removals, Local, Australia Wide, and International.
