If you or someone you know is looking for a great summer job, then we want to introduce you to the moving business and all the skills and benefits you can take away from working in this industry. Many team members we currently have here started out working on the trucks in the warehouse in the moving business. Including our own president of the company.
Working in the moving business helps you acquire a whole host of skills that can help you later on in life. And if you choose to stay, it’s a great career with many opportunities to help others.
Here are just a few reasons why you might want to consider working in the moving business this summer.
You will learn the value of great customer service
When you work as part of a moving crew, you will be interacting with homeowners and their families. And you’ll be working with them at a time that could be stressful. You will quickly understand why it’s important to provide the best customer experience possible. That means interacting with homeowners in a respectful manner and understanding how to make them feel comfortable if they do get anxious. Learning how to interact with others during trying times is a skill we all need.
You will understand the power of teamwork
Moving companies operate on the concept of teamwork. From the moment a customer calls to set up a date to move their home until the last box is placed in their new house, it’s all about teamwork. And when it comes to being on the moving crew, teamwork is a critical component. In many cases, you’ll be moving heavy and bulky furniture, and that requires more than one person. The only way this gets done efficiently and with safety is by working together.
Organizing skills as you’ve never seen
Professional movers are some of the most organized people you will ever meet. Talk to anybody who spent any time in the moving business and working on a moving van and they will know exactly how to organize that truck. You’ll not only learn incredible organizing skills but you’ll learn how to keep everything safe in the process.
You’re going to get a great workout
If you’re looking to get in shape this summer, we can’t think of a better way to do that than working as part of a moving crew. You’ll be moving everything from boxes to large pieces of furniture and more. And because you’ll be moving many of these items through doorways and other openings in the home, you’ll get a keen eye for moving items while keeping them from damage in the process.
