What is the key component to a well rounded moving company? This is a question that was recently poised in a nationwide survey. The figures show that 1 in 5 Americans will relocate every year; this is a pretty big number and shows that our county is a constant moving machine. We can attribute it to this fact and we would say people not only move locally but nationwide moves have been a big part of our business. You will want a company that can handle multiple customers and have the moving resources like trucks and equipment to accommodate any relocation. A one man a truck operation is not the best idea to go with because if the person goes over on another job they could be late to get to you delaying the move. Or if their solo truck breaks down who knows when the move will be done. By picking a company like ours with a good fleet of vehicles you will never have this problem; there will always be a back up option ready to go.
Most people living in the US will move around 10 times in their life time. This will be due to a change of jobs or starting a family it’s a very common thing especially while you are in your early 20s to late 40s to move around. We move not only college students but young professionals whose companies are relocating them to other states. To even couples who are starting families and need more space. We also handle moves for elderly folk and we have a special rate for them to relocate them in to retirement homes and help them downsize.
The average American will relocate 2 times after the age of 45, this will most likely be a downsizing of a place once the kids fly the nest. Then later on in life most likely a move to a warmer climate to see out old age in the sun and to a state that has better tax incentives. On a daily basis we move people of a retirement or early retirement age to places like Florida or Arizona for not only its great yearly temperatures but its great communities catered to people who are retiring. These states have great golf courses and the house prices give you a great deal more than say living in or around a city like Los Angeles, New York or Chicago or any other big metro.
Individuals who rent make up the bulk of people who move the most in America, after a year or 2 year lease is up for a tenant people tend to look for a new location to move to. Or if a place is not rent controlled rising costs can force people out in to other accommodation. We would say around 50% of our moving business comes from rental clients. Especially in the bigger cities like Los Angeles, Miami, Manhattan or Chicago we really do notice people moving more frequently.
So as you can see we are pretty knowledgeable with what is going on nationwide with moving and the industry in general so we take this key data and make sure we improve our company and its logistics based on these findings.
