He promotes client satisfaction and repeat business by excelling at the most difficult aspect in the moving trade attracting, training and retaining quality staff.
Preparation is the key
Moving is a co-operative effort, and preparation is the key to a successful move.
The more the client does to prepare for the move beforehand, the smoother the job will go.
Moving companies are paid by the hour. Clients who want to minimize the price and maximize the performance can visit www.swanmoving.com to read a tip sheet and clip the $25 coupon. The tip sheet offers great advice on how to save time and money when you’re moving. It helps Swan do a better job and gives the client the best service at a lower cost. The tip sheet isn’t a “must do” list, but a list of how the perfect client prepares for their move. During the move, Swan staff will ask four important questions:
1.“Can you please show me everything to be moved?”
2.“Have we loaded everything?”
3. “Where does this piece go?”
4.“Are you satisfied that everything is in the correct spot?”
Polite, prompt, professional
What people says about us
Swan pays its staff well, offers a generous group health benefit plan to eligible full-time staff, and rewards prompt, courteous, quality service with daily and monthly employee incentive programs. “The difference between us and some other moving companies is we send out full-time professionals who move quality furniture every day,” Nicole says.
In his four decades in the household moving trade, Mike has noticed that it’s often the lady of the house who is in charge of the household move, by hiring the movers and directing the job from start to finish.
Swan employees are always in uniform, polite and efficient. Trucks are clean and on time. There is only courteous, respectful language on job sites or company property. Swan treats its clients, staff, suppliers and the public with respect. Mike regularly receives compliments on his team’s professional appearance and conduct. “Great manners,” “agreeable in nature,” “eager to help,” and “perfect move, no damage,” are some typical remarks from clients! “The atmosphere we create is of the finest quality,” says Nicole. “There is a difference with our company, and that difference is our quality staff and progressive, positive management.”
