Nonprofit moving company offers training to the unemployed and underemployed

Founder says he works for free


Fran Tedrow of Anderson heard about Quality Moving Service from her pastor’s wife and used them when she moved from Middletown in May.

“I can’t recommend them high enough,” Tedrow said.”They worked hard and it was a hot day that day.”

This is not the first time Tedrow has hired someone to help her move, but she said they are the best movers she has ever hired. She is so happy with their service she carries their business card so she can recommend them to other people.

“The owner is trying to do a service to get those men back on their feet and they were all nice and really great guys,” she said.

“We could not be more pleased with their service.”

Aukerman said customer service is an important skill that he teaches his employees.

“Sometimes you get movers who don’t care about your furniture and people will have a family heirloom that gets crushed,” he said.

“We handle everything with care.”
