The Upcoming Moving Season

by Apr 18, 2023Uncategorized

Spring is here, finally, and soon another moving season will draw on all our resources to cover the surge that happens every peak season. As the economy rebounds corporate relocations will begin in earnest, moving employees to new jobs at new locations, nationwide, locally, or even across US borders. Local moves will soar, pushing labor capacity to straining levels. Storage intake will fill the floors with vaulting and securing required.

Thomason Moving Training is rolling out new training options to assist in your labor and hiring needs. After a long winter, many of you in the moving business are short labor as some good folks moved on. It happens every year, new hires move in, some experienced, others less so. New sales personnel may require some seasoning to acclimate to new protocols at the company. Everyone, including Operations, need to be on the same page.

TMT’s Learning Management System allows training at home for workers that teaches, tests, grades and provides test certification. We also provide documentation to allow companies to perform field certifications to provide confidence in their service abilities to the public. As close to 90% of the industry still trains with the “on the job” this training provides, a stable base to any lessons to be learned out in the field and it does it prior and on a schedule.

IAT and its subsidiary, Transguard, have entered into a contractual agreement with TMT. The courses will be offered to all Transguard clients at no cost. TMT will also be working with Moving and Storage Associations across the country to offer discounted rates to our courses and annual Subscription Plan.

TMT would also like to extend an invitation to corporate sponsors who might wish to expose their product or services to the moving industry. We would enjoy discussing any possible relationship to those responsible corporations.
