How can you prepare your customers for their move during peak moving season? First and foremost, be sure to think about the move from your customer’s perspective. How can you simplify things? Then, consider the storage unit. Not all moving containers are the same. Be sure to offer a clean, safe, and secure unit for them to store their belongings. Does your moving company or portable storage business offers containers that are solid, weather-proof, and secure? Ultimately, you will offer both quality and convenience.
Let’s take a look at moving from the customer’s experience. Almost everyone moves a few times over the course of their lives. Whether it’s a move across town or across the country, the process is daunting. It’s time consuming, energy intensive, and stressful. Consumers seek a trouble-free experience. So, moving and storage operators have installed contactless reservations. In addition, there are new hands-free entry systems. All of this translates to simplified customer transactions.
Because moving is so common, especially during peak moving season, we have a lot of information about it. Read on for some moving statistics and tips for helping your customers through it all. And check out Boxwell’s durable moving containers!

Why are people moving?

The primary reason people move is to find a better house. Move.org states that the most common reason for moving is to find a new or better home. For example, better home features are square footage, number of bedrooms, or a pool.

How often do we move?

The average U.S. citizen moves 11.4 times over the course of their lives. In comparison with the rest of the world, Americans move the most! While this typically happens in their 20s and 30s, many also move at or near retirement age.
