Success story | Eric from E Team Removalists

Here we share Eric’s story

Eric’s journey into the removalist industry has quite a unique story. After a long career in the financial services industry, Eric was in a tragic motorbike accident. He was in and out of hospital for many years on a long journey to recovery. During his rehabilitation, he found labour-intensive activities the best way to improve his strength and mobility. Planning to return to the workforce, he knew needed a job that kept him moving. He began a small-scale courier service, where he delivered packages and bulky items. This concept continued to evolve and in 2017, became E Team Removalists.  

He started out as a sole trader operating out of his SUV. Today, Eric has a team of  12 removalists with 7 vehicles on Sydney’s busy roads.

Challenges before Oneflare

Eric was completely new to the removalist scene, and admits he had “no industry knowledge”. He set out to learn the ropes of the industry and understand how to run his own business. However, this was a difficult, time-consuming task and after long,  labour-intensive work, there wasn’t a lot of time left in the day for lead generation.  

In the early stages of his business, he couldn’t afford to pay for marketing or search engine optimisation (SEO). He struggled to find customers and when he did, there was a lot of competition from more established businesses with more manpower and reviews.  

Experience on Oneflare

Joining Oneflare in 2019, Eric’s experience on the platform has really helped him scale his business and achieve his goals. His account manager helped develop and grow E Team Removals, with a hands-on approach, shared valuable suggestions and tips for business growth and success on and off the platform.  

With experience on multiple service platforms, Eric sheds light on the affordability of  Oneflare and the systems in place to help control competition for businesses.  Throughout his impressive business journey, he has also managed to build an outstanding reputation, with unfaltering 5-star reviews.
