Being part of a significant part of our customers lives, sharing their smiles and bitter sweet sadness as they reminisce on the memories they have had in their beloved home before they partake on a new residence, new journey and new chapter. It's also the love for working outside and working in the sun, as well as being in the open road and getting to see more of this beautiful state which is Victoria
How did you decide to get into your line of work?
The love for the open road as well as well as something more speciial. After conversating with a wedding Videographer about our line of work, we had both reached the same conclusion, and that is the love for being part of significant transitions in our customers lives. Whether it be moving to a new rental property or purchased homes or simply a new small business that has suddenly expanded and is moving into a more spacious office.
What questions do customers commonly ask and how would you answer them?
"Are there any hidden fees?" is the most asked question as many customers get stung by unexpected fees. Well GorillaMovers is here to change the industry and say "No" to hidden fees and "Yes" to affordability, professionalism and great service.
Do you have a favourite customer story you would like to share?
Once whilst working in the Melbourne suburbs, there was an old lady who was nearing the 90yr mark that was the most delightful and happy person that had requested a removalist service. She had so much energy she would put most 20-30 year olds to shame. A great customer with a beautiful smile, she had brightened up our day by not only assisting to the best of her ability, but to give us her secret advice for being 90 year old with great spirits. We'd be glad to share this secret upon request whilst on the job :D
