Did you know that the moving industry employs roughly 187,000 people across the country? Or that it contributes about $30.7 billion of output to the national economy each year? The moving industry moves nearly half a million people each year – including residential moves and office/corporate moves.
The pandemic has altered many areas of business in our country and the world, but the moving industry has adapted to the current circumstances and has continued to help America keep moving forward.
To read more about how the industry is adapting to COVID challenges, you can read a recently published article on trucks.com.
“For the 95 percent of the nation’s economy that remained open and kept going, the moving industry has helped keep people and commerce moving forward throughout the pandemic.
Movers are an essential business and have responded swiftly to the pandemic with thorough planning, effective safety measures, and thoughtful policies on handling scheduling. We’ve established a deeper trust with our customers by serving them more carefully and thoughtfully during this time and we should continue the practices we’ve adopted into the future.
Our teams have relied on technology more than ever, including virtual estimating platforms, web conferences with clients to plan moves, online training and the greater use of mobile devices. More of our work continues to migrate to digital. We should continue to invest in technologies that provide a more efficient and seamless experience for our customers while ensuring that they don’t replace our high-touch, personal customer service touchpoints.”
