Why Hire a Moving Company: An Interview with Steven Gammon of Tiger Moving

By Steven Gammon

Please describe a little bit about your company and its foundation.

My name is Steven Gammon and I am Co-Owner of Tiger Moving with Joey Lewis. Joey and I are originally from Lexington, Kentucky and received our Masters Degrees in Business Administration from the University of Kentucky. We have been friends, classmates, and co-workers since the 6th grade. Joey and I worked together at Wildcat Moving in Lexington, KY where I was the VP and Joey was the lead supervisor. Angie's List named Wildcat Moving the best moving company in Kentucky in 2012 and 2013. After working for Wildcat Moving, Joey and I opened Tiger Moving in Greenville, SC in June 2013. My uncle went to Clemson University so I grew up rooting for the Tigers and my fiancée was selected by Greenville Health System to do her Pediatrics Residency following her education at UK.

Joey and I have learned first-hand the uncertainties and stress people experience when moving. We have also learned that people want to be moved by people that are trustworthy and reliable. We believe that people everywhere will always have a need for moving companies based on fundamental ethics and hard work. So Joey and I have brought our beliefs and experience to the beautiful city of Greenville, SC to make your moving experience better.

Our mission is to be the most professional, friendly, and reliable movers in Upstate SC. We keep our overhead expenses low and pass the savings along to you.

What are some of the advantages that come along with hiring a moving company?

-No straining or heavy lifting
-Time saving
-Stess relief
-Experienced workers that are in great physical condition
-All damaged items will be repaired or replaced for free

What privileges do moving companies have that I may not?

We have all the moving necessities on-demand: strong men, box trucks, dollies/hand trucks, furniture pads, shrink wrap, boxes etc.

Is it sometimes more affordable to utilize the services of a moving company?

Yes. The alternative to hiring a moving company would be renting a truck and getting assistance from friends/family. Hiring a moving company insures that none of your friends or family will be injured and that none of your property or possessions will be damaged. An expensive doctor bill or a damaged piece of nice furniture can easily be more expensive than hiring a moving company.

How does hiring a moving company help me save time?

You won't need to worry about renting a moving truck and finding friends to help. Coordinating a move with us is very simple. A 5 -10 min phone call assures that we will be on your doorstep with experienced men and professional equipment at your requested time. Our men are in great physical condition, they know what they are doing, and they work fast without taking breaks.

Will I have insurance on all my belongings?

Yes. We apply full-value replacement insurance to all of our moves. If we damage an item, we will have our professional furniture repairman repair it free of charge. If we can not repair an item, we will replace it free of charge. Customer service is our #1 priority, and that starts with ensuring that all your valuables are well-protected and undamaged at the end of your move.

Any other advice about why homeowners should hire a professional for their move?

We do residential and commercial moving full-time and we are skilled at handling your belongings. If one of your belongings is damaged, which happens from time to time when moving, we will be be liable for repairing/replacing the item. For the vast majority of the time, it is simply infeasible to move by yourself; in which case it is important to hire a moving company that is licensed & insured, offers competitive rates, and has an outstanding reputation.
