Your Chicago Moving Company is Making News
We’ve been moving Chicagoans for more than 40 years, but lately it seems more and more people are taking note of the work we do, whether it’s how we treat our employees or how we help with your Chicago move. Here are a few highlights from what people have been saying over the last few weeks!
Motivating employees without money
The folks at Doostang, a career advice portal, reached out to our president, Mina Georgala, for her thoughts on how to reward employees without big dollars.
Georgalas stays in the office until her employees return after a hard days work to show them that they are all in the long haul altogether.
“When the employees see you, the boss, waiting for them to come back and they realize that you are as tired as them, they will show up the next day waiting to see you at work as well,” Georgala says. “And they do. And that makes them feel part of the company.”

Homeowner’s Guide to A Smooth Move
Kristen Bosse of Illinois Homes interviewed Georgalas to get her thoughts on how to make a smooth move, and how a Chicago moving company can help you do it. Mina shared three big mistakes many people make when it’s time to move in Chicago.
“There are a few big issues to keep in mind. First, they choose only based on rates, not recognizing the add-ons that will come later. Second, they choose a moving company based only on online reviews. Checking credentials with the ICC or IMAWA is a better bet. Third, the homeowners do not disclose everything that needs to be moved, as well as special instructions about stairs, pets, etc.. Moving companies schedule trucks and crews based on the size or restrictions, and not disclosing this info can leave you hanging. And lastly, not being ready on the day of the move. The hours can add up!”

The power of a bad first impression
Making a good first impression is essential in the moving business, but it might be even more important when it comes to your move to a new home.
The folks at LoganSquarist, the hip neighborhood on Chicago’s Northwest side, profiled one new resident whose initial impression was far from stellar. They also talked to Georgalas for some advice on choosing a company to help you move in Chicago, focussing on warning signs of a shady company.
