What is a typical move day like for your team?

The day starts early with the moving team reporting to the base and getting prepared to be dispatched to our customers’ locations. We believe in up-skilling and constant improvements, so every morning we have a quick debrief of what and how things need to get done–again to ensure our customers get the best experience possible.

Tell us the funniest moving story you’ve experienced.

Our sales team has a member named Ana, who was discussing a shift change with another salesperson over the phone. Unfortunately, the call got disconnected, and when they received another call, it was a voice that sounded remarkably similar. The salesperson on duty assumed it was their colleague Ana, whom they had just spoken to, but it turned out to be a customer with the same name. It took a few minutes for the salesperson to realize the situation and transition from discussing internal operations to focusing on sales.
