Paying Special Attention to Wheels of Commerce

Mention the word “move” and the first thing most people think of is moving from one home to another. They think sofas and tables and dishes and books—and everything else inside their homes. But moving can conjure up very different images for other people. It may mean crating and transporting Renaissance paintings. Getting a mega-sized trade show booth into and out of an exhibit hall. Putting hundreds of shelves, racks, and special displays in a store. Or setting a new piece of medical diagnostic equipment in the hospital radiology department.

Moving to another state? Don't make it a state of confusion.

Move across state lines, or interstate moving, can seem pretty simple at a glance. Things get packed up, loaded onto a truck, and delivered to your new home. But it’s easier said than done. Here are a few tips that can help you keep your interstate move from becoming frustrating and confusing.

What Does “Commitment” Mean?

There’s a kind of commitment that’s really important here at Ernie’s Van and Storage. It’s a commitment to bringing our very best to every customer. And, I am pleased to say, Atlas Van Lines has recognized us for this commitment. They recently announced our agency is a 2015 recipient of the Atlas “World-Class Commitment” award for outstanding quality and service.

Staging Your Home During a Move

Have you ever walked through a nice furniture showroom? The professionals who market furnishings and decor understand buyer psychology. They know that selling their wares depends on getting the buyer to see a room setting as their own. Lighting, arrangement, accessories—they’re all designed to press your hot buttons. It’s called “staging” and the same principles apply when you sell your house. You should do this before you put your house on the market.

“It was a very good year.”

As Ernie’s Van and Storage notches its 80th trip around the calendar, it’s a good time to reflect on how it all started. As with every business, you can trace the beginning to one individual’s hopes for a better future.
