Realtors and movers both have the same end goal: to get clients into a new home. If you are a business that has to relocate employees, then you have the same goal too. So do corporate housing companies, seniors’ residences, even university dorms, and more. Along with having the goal of getting their clients or customers relocated, all of these businesses likely want to bring added service value to them. And that’s where partnering with a moving company comes in.
Why Should Realtors (and other businesses) partner with a moving company?
There are a lot of ways that a realtor, or any of the other businesses listed, can benefit from partnering with movers, but here are 3 of the best:
Generate more clients
This point applies more to realtors than any of the other businesses, but it’s one of the most important benefits. Everyone wants to know how to gain more clients, that’s the goal of doing business. We’re here to tell you that one of the best ways is to offer your customers something to bring added value to the service you already provide.
When clients are looking for a realtor and they see that you can not only help them purchase a new home, but move into it as well, they’ll be much more likely to hire you. The same applies to corporate housing companies; if you can help with the move, clients will be more likely to choose you.
The basic point is, when you partner with a moving company, you have already solved one of the most difficult steps of moving for your client, and that will make for happy customers.
Get better customer referrals
A lot of businesses rely on referrals to get them business. Sometimes when a potential customer is having trouble choosing which service provider to go with, a referral from a friend or family member will make the difference.
Realtors, seniors’ residences, and even corporate housing companies can all benefit from customer referrals. But the question is, how do you get a referral? Well aside from being good at the service you provide, offering extras that add value to your service is an excellent way.
If you are a senior’s residence that has partnered with a reliable moving company, you’re likely to get a good referral from people who live there, or have moved family members in because you made the whole moving process easier. Same goes for realtors who have a partnership with a mover.
Gain a trusted partner
No matter what your business does, you want to give your clients the best possible experience. You want to avoid recommending a service to them that will turn their experience sour. But, when you recommend any old moving company, this can happen.
That’s why you should partner with a reliable moving company that you trust, to make sure you are always recommending your clients movers who will make their moving experience more positive.
