Giving Thanks

Exodus Moving and Storage has been serving the moving needs of Colorado and beyond for several years now. The dream of one individual became the cause of many, starting with one small moving truck and becoming a full service relocation company. Today, we are the best Colorado moving company and we our proud not only of our humble beginnings but of the teamwork it has taken to excel in such a large and saturated market such as the moving and storage industry. As the time of thanks draws near, we have so many things to be thankful for. Here are just a few at the top of our list.

Our Team

At Exodus, we hand pick our employees. We don’t believe in the concept of day- labor or temporary hires. Instead we interview, do reference checks and drug tests and we hire only those fine folks that we feel would properly represent us in the field with our customers, every day. We take moving people very seriously, so we make sure that our staff receives ongoing training and fair wages, making our employee turnover rate one of the lowest in the country. We are also Choose People Certified because we are committed to being “happy place to work.” The people of Exodus are what make our company like no other.

Our Work

We are proud to boast a damage ratio that is ¼ of the industry average. This is a result of the combination of quality workers and comprehensive training. When we were just starting out, every client and every referral meant everything to our business. We knew that our biggest competition was riddled with moving horror stories because of their lack of attention to detail and lack of accountability with regard to their staff. We are expert movers, proud of the work we do. And no matter how big we become, we still work under the philosophy that one unsatisfied customer is one too many.

Our Community

We are passionately involved in our communities. At Exodus, we put our time, talents and money into the places that we live and work. We support green energy practices within our offices and have incorporated many green friendly procedures into our work. This includes our tree planting program for every move we complete. For this program we partner with Trees Water & People.  We are also thankful for the freedoms we have and maintain in this great country of ours and regardless of political affiliation, we support causes that support our troupes and their families. Project Sanctuary and Colorado Hire Patriots are a few of the military support groups that we are committed to.

As we celebrate thanksgiving this year, we are setting our table with gratitude. We are thankful for the work we do, the communities we serve and the people who make it all possible. What are you thankful for?

We the People of Exodus, on Independence Day

At Exodus Moving and Storage we are very patriotic. We are committed to supporting those who support our freedom. On this 4th of July we simply can’t help but be thankful for the red, white and blue.

In 1776 five people were appointed to create a draft about freedom. The colonies sought separation from Great Britain and Robert Livingston, John Adams, Roger Sherman and Benjamin Franklin joined Thomas Jefferson to write what is now known as the Declaration of Independence. And while it was actually signed on the second of July instead of the 4th, on parchment instead of paper, this historic document is now held as a symbol of freedom in our great country. In a well known letter written by Adams to his wife:

“The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”

Today as always, we are proud to be Americans and proud to be a company based in this great nation. We believe that the US was founded on some very important ideas about freedom. And throughout the year we are happy to support those who are making life better for the military members and family who give up so much to protect that freedom.

So this year as you are BBQing with family and friends, setting off fireworks and hopefully doing what Adams referred to as “pomp and parade”, we would like to encourage you to take the celebration one step further. We support the above organizations because we believe in this great country of ours. If you haven’t taken a look at them to see how you can get involved, we would like to invite you to do so.

From the Exodus family to yours, Happy Independence Day!

Project Sanctuary & Exodus Partner Spotlight Part 1

“When a serviceperson is deployed, a family goes to war.”

Many people claim to support our military. But at Exodus, we feel that in spite of the various ideologies attached to the politics of war, the activity of supporting our troops is a separate pursuit. Leaving homes and family is par for the course for these young individuals. And while many people talk about “giving back to those who give so much,” at Exodus, we support those who are putting this talk into action.

Project Sanctuary is an organization we are proud to support because of their unique understanding of the plight of military personnel and their families. They understand the intricacies of this life changing situation. This organization seeks to address the deep relational ramifications of leaving your loved ones for long periods of time. Not only do these young men and women risk their lives, but they often return to families in financial and emotional stress, the kind of which is often unaddressed by other military support avenues. Project Sanctuary specializes in recreational therapy in the form of retreats that help to heal the wounds of war.

The following is from an interview we recently did with Heather Ehle about Project Sanctuary and partnership with Exodus Moving and Storage.

What do you do with Project Sanctuary?

My name is Heather and I am the Founder of Project Sanctuary. I was a registered nurse during the first gulf war. Experiencing many things during this time, I was overwhelmed with the reality that there simply wasn’t enough being done for the families of military. These people are away from their loved ones for so long, when they return, things have always changed. I began to do research and found that neglect and abuse reports triple during times of deployment. It was obvious to me that there was an incredible gap between what was being offered and what was needed and this chasm was wide indeed for these wives, husbands and children. I built Project Sanctuary to bridge this gap and based the program model on this basic premise: I asked them what they needed. Project Sanctuary is completely designed around the personal struggles and adjustments military families have to make and therefore it’s an evolving program based on the needs of those it serves. Currently we have two main groups: Blue Star- for those who currently have a family member in the field and Gold Star- for those who have lost a family member in the line of duty.

What the main goal of Project Sanctuary?

At Project Sanctuary we help military families to reconnect with each other. During times of deployment, families are emotionally and financially stressed often to the point of breaking. With few exceptions, they have a hard time being a part of a community in such a state and ironically, it’s what they need the most. Civilians don’t often understand just how much is being missed while a service person is away. The average army deployment is 14 months. Think about it. That means that the family back home has been without their loved one for every holiday and birthday in that calendar year. If you are in the army and you have had a couple of deployments and you have an 8 year old, you have missed most of their life. So many firsts are missed. First steps, first words, first school dances. And it’s even worse in the case of dual families who have both mother and father in the armed forces. Mom and Dad take turns being away. As you can imagine, this takes a very logical toll on everyone and brings new meaning to the word sacrifice.
