February 14, 2014 // Franchising.com // VANCOUVER, BC – Local moving brand, You Move Me took their industry by storm in 2013, launching franchises in over 25 cities and generating a whopping $5.8 million in system-wide revenue in just their first year.
"I believe our success can be attributed to the different approach we’re taking to moving compared to our competitors", says Founder & CEO Brian Scudamore. "Two areas that I found were lacking in the industry were professionalism and exceptional customer service so that’s where we’re focusing our efforts. Our goal is to make the painful experience of moving almost fun."
Scudamore is the entrepreneur behind 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, the world’s largest junk removal service and is widely known as being the pioneer of the professional junk removal industry in North America. Up until now, You Move Me franchises have only been awarded to the top performing Franchise Partners in the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? system. With their first year complete, You Move Me is now offering franchise opportunities to qualified entrepreneurs outside of the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? family that have the passion and drive required to change an industry.
You Move Me plans to set itself apart with complimentary morning coffee, clear arrival windows, a housewarming plant as a post-move gift, and unexpectedly high standards of customer service. The company offers a full suite of services - including packing and moving - and even sells supplies. Customers will benefit from a one-time travel fee, no-charge protection, no-charge assembly and disassembly of furniture and a no-charge wardrobe service. In keeping with the fun theme, the wardrobe box doubles as a space rocket for the kids.
You Move Me’s top performing franchises in 2013 were in Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Toronto, Vancouver and Washington, D.C. Despite You Move Me’s presence in several major metros across North America, opportunities are still available in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas and Miami. With a goal to add 24 franchises in 2014, You Move Me hopes to end the year with 50 locations in total and $14 million in system-wide revenue.
You Move Me is a professional, local moving company that moves people, not just their boxes. You Move Me is pioneering a new standard for the moving industry with a customer experience that is different from what’s expected. It’s a full service moving company that’s almost fun; offering moving, packing, and supplies options; and a wardrobe box that doubles as a kid’s fort!
