ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Firefighting’s Finest Moving & Storage, based in Fort Worth, Texas, has been named the nation’s top independent moving company for 2018 by the American Moving & Storage Association.
The company has earned the Independent Mover of the Year Award for exceptional business growth, strong customer satisfaction and award-winning service.
This award, also known as “the Indy,” reflects the association’s and the industry’s commitment to outstanding performance among independent movers as demonstrated through innovative business methods and practices, community involvement, customer service practices, employee relations, and operations that address a current and compelling social or economic issue, according to Scott Michael, AMSA president and CEO.
The recipient is selected by a panel of industry experts.
“Firefighting’s Finest Moving & Storage is honored to receive this prestigious award. It reflects our team’s hard work, dedication and commitment to excellence. The true desire ‘to serve’ shines through with this incredible achievement,” said Derrick Potter, president of Firefighting’s Finest Moving & Storage.
Since opening in 2001, Firefighting’s Finest has earned an impeccable reputation, providing customers with an exceptional, service-first moving experience, Potter said.
“Our focus on customer service provided by well-trained crews has allowed for continued growth, while our commitment to excellence has ensured that the growth is well managed, and quality is not lost,” he said.
Still owned and operated by military veterans and off-duty professional firefighters, Firefighting’s Finest’s commitment to serve customers and the community is what sets them apart.
The company’s teams of professional movers are carefully selected to ensure that a commitment to quality and service is shared by them, and that the company’s vision is the team’s vision—an exceptional move exceeding expectations on every move, Potter said.
Offering a full range of services including moving, packing and storage has allowed Firefighting’s Finest to grow to four locations, with over 160 employees, a sizable fleet with warehouse facilities, and military approval as a TSP.
Potter said Firefighting’s Finest Moving and Storage’s commitment to serve has led the company to earning many awards, including the prestigious Pro Patria Award, Small Business of the Year Award in 2016 from the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, and several Torch Awards from the BBB for Marketing Ethics. Firefighting’s Finest is also proud to be the first ever Mover of the Year awarded by Move For Hunger.
