Want to Be a Mover? Here’s What to Look for in a Company

by | Sep 3, 2023

If you are looking for moving company jobs and careers, you will want to choose a company you can see yourself working with for a long time.  There are plenty of companies out there that will take advantage of their workers, whether intentionally or by accidental design.  To ensure you’re choosing the right company to launch your moving career, here are a few things to look for.  

Those Looking for Moving Company Jobs Should Look for These Qualities

Happy Employees

One thing you always want to look for when looking for the right place to work is a happy staff.  Look around during your interview, or just focus on the demeanor of your interviewer.  Do they seem happy?  This is a simple but effective indication that you’ve come to the right place.

The Right Tools for the Job

Make sure you ask what is provided for a moving job.  The last thing you want is to work for a company that doesn’t equip you with the right tools to properly work effectively.  This will eventually lead to customer dissatisfaction and could impact your perceived performance or lead to frustration and an unhappy workplace.

Staff Numbers

Just like you need the right tools for the job, you need the right help as well.  Find out how many movers the company usually sends for each job, and what the specifications are that help to make that decision.  If the decision seems random, you may want to reconsider.  Each job should be analyzed and staffed according to what it will take to get the job done, without having you overworked or understaffed.

Workers Comp

Moving, while not a dangerous job, can be labor-intensive.  Providing workers comp for their employees is a sign of a company that takes responsibility for their staff.  Many companies may try to take you on as a sub-contractor, to try to avoid this responsibility.  Be wary of this.

Training

The worst thing is trying to do a job you don’t know how to do!  Choose a company that will train you and sends you on jobs with more experienced staff members so that you aren’t flying blind.

Adan and Fil were efficient and handled items with care. I would use them again.
These guys were great. Very polite and professional. Hard workers and the move went well with no damages!And Gary is very patient with me as I had difficulties trying to get him paid through Zelle and had to get a business check but he was very patient and we got it all figured out. I would recommend this company for local moves.
Highly recommend this company. From estimate to final move, we received the best service from the office staff who explained and answered all our questions and the 2 young men who moved us taking all precautions with our items. Thank you for your transparency and professionalism.
