My Town Movers opened in Collierville five years ago and since then the “values-based” moving company has grown its staff to 25 employees, created a nonprofit arm to serve the needs of local Mid-South communities and recently received the Spirit of Collierville Award.
Owned by Noel Fenderson, Preston Burleson and Chris Winchell, My Town Movers is poised for additional growth and expansion in Shelby County. The owners recently talked to us about what makes their business special.
What are some of the things that make your company stand out?
It is values based with a customer-centric focus and has a Business As Mission model. The nonprofit arm that is 501© 3, My Town Miracles, was launched in 2015 by My Town Movers’ owners to even further serve the needs of the local communities.
What are some of the services you offer that other moving companies don’t offer?
Having moved thousands of households, My Town Movers knows what a successful move looks like: No damaged or broken belongings, a respectful moving crew and no hidden charges.
In turn, My Town Movers offers its client a four-step plan to get their life back to normal and avoid the chaos of moving.
Furthermore, understanding how important trust is when choosing a mover, My Town Movers makes six promises to the client on every move. Each of these details are outlined at MyTownMovers.com.
