Questions and Answers
in 2010 it just happened naturally. literally overnight. i saw the light 1 day and jumped in head first and the rest is history.
What are you most proud of?
well yesterday as a mater of fact. it was a customer whom i had been having email discussions for 2 months concerning his move. he kept emphasising that he wanted us to take our time and individually blanket and wrap every piece and load very securely. he had me slightly intimidated that he would nitpik us. but we proved to him that we are great and he is now convinced.
What is important to know about your profession?
well i wish that half of them could understand that we do this 7 days a week. and that our ways and practices are designed to save the customer as much money as possible. so leave it to us and watch us turn an 8 hour move into 4.
What kind of questions do customers ask you?
the most frequent questions that i dread are: do we provide truck. the answer is no. the customer rents a truck and saves.
How can we save money hiring you?
rent your own truck. have yourself, friend, or family drive the truck. have the movers do as little for you as you possibly can.
What do you recommend to know before hiring you?
please do your homework 1st. we only want relevant facts. please dont try to talk our ear off with irelevant nonsense. all we want is: date of move, start time, start address, and number of men needed.
What types of jobs are the most common?
just regular household moves. but we get everything. we move lumber shipments, sheds, chicken coops, mall kiosks, aquariums.
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
First, ask about their availability. Then tell them the date of the move, start time, start address, and number of men needed.
What we may not know about you?
customers may not realise that we take pride in our trade and that we are very busy doing this 7 days a week.
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
After the truck is empty, I always ask if there is anything else we can do for them.We help distribute boxes to desired areas. We also help with the complete set-up and assembly of furniture.We can unpack and dispose of all packing materials and boxes.
How many projects do you average in a year?
each year we average 1200 moves. that is 100 moves each month. between like 8 guys. we will bang out 20 moves in 2 days. up to 16 men working in 1 day. up to 6 crews at 1 time. a crew can do 3 to 4 moves max in 1 day.
