Of all of the products and services offered by some of the best moving companies, not all of them are fit for each individual person. Everybody has specific needs that could be tailored to best fit the situation that they are in. One of the most important ones is tailoring pay scale according to how far the movie is, and what is going to be required. The second most important I would say would be to tailor the moving style to the home in question.
The best moving companies in the United States do not charge a simple flat rate for every move that they do. Sure, this works out well for people who follow along that edge just before the next tier of pay, but works out horribly for those who do not. If you fall on a fringe case that is not the fringe that is closest to the next tier of pay, then it’s likely that you are being ripped off. It’s important that the best moving companies tailor the amount of money that you owe on each move to the distance and effort required to do so. You wouldn’t want to pay the same amount to move from Fort Collins to Loveland as you would from Fort Collins to Denver would you? Seems like the Denver people get the better side of the deal on that one and the people who move to Loveland kind of get shafted. This is exactly what I’m talking about and why you should pay attention to how much you are going to be paying.
The second important thing to understand is that the best moving companies tailor the style of the moving to the home that they are going to be moving in. Let’s say for example you need to move a large couch into a home that has a very small front entrance. Refusing to go to the back entrance would be foolhardy simply because the backdoor is usually larger than the front door. It may seem simplistic and extremely childlike to think that people wouldn’t believe this was the case, but you would be surprised at how many times this happens. You’ll know you’re getting a good moving company when they understand how to move into different homes and the mechanics that go underneath that.
It’s the hardest part of finding a moving company that will be right for you is understanding what they do. Not all moving companies are formed the same services the same way. Sure, the main goal of the moving company is to move you, but that doesn’t mean that they all go about it in the same manner. For example, our model is that you will have two strong guys and a truck to help you get everything out of your home and it’s your new place. We consider ourselves a full service moving company in that from start to finish, you will have someone next to you to help you get all of your heavier belongings, and lighter belongings, into their correct places.
If however you want to look around because you don’t want to feel like you’re restricted to one company, we completely understand. The wise thing to do when today’s consumer based economy is to ensure that you get the best deal possible by looking around and comparing prices and services. We would hate for you to go with a company that is blatantly more expensive than someone who provides the same services as a much cheaper company. The Internet is great for this the cause it provides you with an easy to access way of looking at each company and comparing. When it comes to actually purchasing a service, that’s best performed in person because you are allowed to barter. It’s very difficult to barter with a computer. In person, you have some influence over what the other person says when it comes to the price and products. The emotional connection that you can make with that person you’re talking with that makes it all the better for bartering
All in all, the desolate to go about searching for the best moving company for you is to use both methods. Go ahead and do a bunch of research online, it’s extremely beneficial. Then, once you’ve narrowed your selection down to a few, go ahead and show up in person and talk with them. You’ll be surprised what you get out of it.
When making the big decision to move, hiring one of the best moving companies to come in and help get you from your old place to your new place could be one of the best decisions you make in a very long time. The best moving companies are all full service moving which means that they come in and help you move your things into the truck, and then help you get your stuff out of the truck and into the correct rooms that it belongs in. Any full service moving company though can do this for you. It takes true dedication to the art of moving to provide you with great service at the same time.
This is what separates the great companies from the good companies. The good companies will help you get into your new place with all of your stuff in the correct position. You won’t however know who the people are who helped you, nor is it likely that the experience will be anything all that spectacular. Great moving companies on the other hand have an air of confidence about them that makes you want to know more about the people who are helping you. It’s not every single day that you move so the experience should be a memorable one. Something that you’re member a long time down the road, hopefully for the better. A great moving company will ensure that you have the smoothest move you’ve ever had and help to create that experience that comes along with moving.
So, before you hire just any old moving company, do a little bit of research and find the best companies. What people say about the company is rather important and can give your insight into how well they perform. Do that research, and you will not be disappointed with the outcome of your move. After all, it’s the job of any moving company to do exactly that, move. Without that experience and dedication to the move, it’s less likely that you’ll have a memorable experience.
Our own Joel Coen wins Entrepreneurial Spirit Award in a Testament to Teamwork
In 2010 we expanded into Commerce City and only a year later we have already been recognized for making a difference. In September Commerce City awarded our Chief Operating Officer, Joel Coen with its Entrepreneurial Spirit Award:
The award acknowledges the risks and perseverance required for entrepreneurs to be successful in today’s business environment. In a down economy, Mr. Coen did what few others did – developing a plan to expand his business into new markets and recreating customer experience. Exodus Moving & Storage secured lucrative government contracts and took advantage of the Colorado Hire Patriots program to expand workforce by hiring veterans. Social responsibility is also a key element in the company’s business operations and they support a number of non-profit organizations such as Alternative to Violence, Habitat for Humanity, Realities for Children and SEAKR.
But, as always, Joel remains humble and focused on what it really takes to succeed: “The focus of this award should be on the teamwork it takes to make this happen.”
It may seem like he is being modest, but that is just the plain truth. This isn’t an individual award. This is recognition for everything we have been doing since we arrived in Commerce City – which is a continuation of what we have been doing in Colorado for the past fifteen years. We are humbled and grateful that Commerce City has chosen to give a nod to our teamwork – which is just one of our most precious core values.
In March, Joel sat down for an interview with Commerce City’s director of Economic Development, Brittany Morris Saunders, and he spelled out what makes us stand above the rest:
“Exodus success in the moving industry is based upon a devotion to providing the best moving services that exceed customers’ expectations. We achieve this through hiring the right people…We move everything ourselves, and we do not sub-contract out the job.”
