Describe what your organization does in two sentences.
We provide logistical expertise and options in a manner that is tailored to each moving client. We give peace of mind during the 3rd most stressful life event.
Who do you serve?
Anyone with a moving need. We can move your decorated Christmas tree to the garage until next year or your entire home or business across country and everything in between. We also have 106,000 sq ft of storage, short term, long term, or climate controlled. We store everything from furniture to fair equipment to freezers with medical evidence for attorneys.
One fact you may not know about my organization is:
There IS a Margaret. People often think it’s a made up name or the name of a previous owner.
What sets your business apart from others in the way you attract and retain talent?
I look for quality people regardless of experience. I can train anyone with a willingness to work and learn with a positive attitude.
What do you like about being an investor in Greater Louisville Inc.?
I have been overwhelmed with GLI’s willingness and CARING about helping me recruit talent. I am only able to put out half the trucks I did 4 years ago because of the labor shortage. They have been helping me recruit. Their resources are broad and deep and I wished I had delved into the benefits years ago when I first invested.
How does your organization engage in the community?
We do a tremendous amount of storage and logistical work with Toys for Tots. We donate goods and services greater than $100K each year. We also provide storage and logistics for Honor Flight Bluegrass. Basically we help wherever we can, when we can.
