PTM Services: Removing the stress from event planning and home renovations
When planning a home renovation, or a personal or corporate event, there is a great deal to consider to ensure everything goes off without a hitch. From budget to timelines, venue, lighting, music... the list goes on. And that's where our latest Local Business Spotlight, PTM Services, can come in handy.
PTM Services works with you to understand your specific needs and will develop a plan to make your vision a reality, saving you time, money and a great deal of stress. We recently caught up with Dylan at his Stor-Age unit in Claremont to learn more about his growing business, his vision and the craziest event he has done. This is what he had to say.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your business?
My name is Dylan Edwards, and I run PTM Services, which stands for Project and Technical Management Services. We offer a wide range of event technical and home project management services around South Africa.
Besides myself, I have one full-time employee. The rest of the team varies based on the requirements of a specific job. We have a great list of freelancers that we call upon whenever a job requires extra hands.
What makes PTM Services different?
As a growing startup, we pride ourselves on our quality of service - no job too small or too big for us. We firmly believe that our customers come first, and we will go above and beyond to meet their expectations. We recently had a customer say that we were “worth every penny”, which is always great to hear.
What’s in the pipeline for PTM Services?
Our immediate plan is to get through the next two years. As with any startup, the first few years are the hardest financially. We’re also facing the added pressure of winning back clients after COVID-19 and building a name for ourselves. Hopefully, in the next 5 years, we will have built up our name and reputation in the industry.
Why did you choose to store with Stor-Age?
We needed a secure place to store our equipment to keep our expenses down and avoid spending exorbitant fees on insurance. Stor-Age is central, and having our equipment minutes away makes life a lot easier. It was also easy to move into a bigger unit as we grew, and transferring our equipment is a breeze thanks to the trolleys provided.
What is your fondest memory of an event?
We recently did a home wedding in Constantia where we had to build a stage over the pool and a tent structure with lighting, which is more of a production that we’re used to doing for corporate and international clients. In this case, the family wanted to host the wedding at their home as it had special meaning for them and was more personal than a destination wedding.
If you could start all over again, what advice would you give yourself?
I think the most important advice is to be patient, keep your friends close, and be careful who you trust.
