Movers Staying Put

The business section of the Northwest Indiana Times read "Movers staying put" on Wednesday, Feb 13th. In this article some of Northwest Indiana's movers were interviewed. One company mentioned that 2007 was their best year ever. They stated that they are "slow" right now, but it is the middle of February. They aren't giving up hope at this point. With the housing market being in a major downturn for the past year, one of the company's found a unique way to diversify. Jeff's Movers of Merrillville, IN purchased a 20,000 square foot warehouse for container storage. The containers meet a need for people who have lost their homes due to foreclosure. The contents of the home are packed into the container and transported to their warehouse for storage until the owners have relocated. Moving everything only twice, this cuts back on labor and out of pocket cost for those needing to move. Even the small independant movers agree that diversification is key to keeping busy!
