It’s hard to believe that Christmas time is already here. 2017 has flown by, and 2018 is knocking on the door.
With only one local move scheduled Christmas week, my guys will get some much needed time-off to rest. We usually use December as the month to catch-up on everything—like spring cleaning in the winter. However, this December has been crazy. With 14 moves including a two-truck long-distance move to Florida, the guys haven’t had a moments rest. Of course, that just sums-up the year we have had. This year, we have performed over 140 moves (28 of those have been out of state moves). The guys have been to Chicago, Boston, Kansas City and New York to mention a few. We have also packed and unpacked several of the jobs, all the while maintaining an unheard of less than 0.5% damage claim rate. The industry average stays around 2.8%-3%. Training and fair wages based on realistic expectations account for part of this record rate. However, having crews that actually care about the job they do and the folks they are serving is what really makes a difference.
Green Valley Moving has been blessed with great staff, great customers to serve, and family to hold it all together. This Christmas, as you hopefully enjoy some time with your family, I pray that you will reflect on more than just the highs and lows of the year. I hope that we all can cut through the things of this world, and that we can truly turn our attention to the greatest gift ever: the gift of our Savior Jesus, born in a manger some 2000 years ago. So whether the circumstances surrounding your Christmas are good or bad this year, I pray your focus will be on Jesus.
We look forward to serving you in 2018.
