The Unique Benefits of Owning a Moving Company Franchise
Becoming a franchisee of a moving company is a fantastic idea for people who are ready for an exciting new career. You get to flex your entrepreneurial muscles and be your own boss, but you have the safety net of an established brand backing your decisions.
As a growing Canadian franchise with a bright future ahead of us, Metropolitan Movers offers our franchisees an exciting opportunity. Today, we’re going to look at the benefits of joining the moving industry and, more specifically, all that you stand to gain by joining our team. Read on to learn more.
Benefits of a Moving Franchise
Investing in a franchise isn’t a decision you can make lightly. You need to make sure the industry you’ve chosen is the right fit for your expectations and financial needs. When you’re looking to become a franchisee, consider these factors carefully.
Beyond your initial investment costs, you’ll have to consider the ongoing expenses you’ll need to pay as a franchisee. From office space and utilities to insurance, licenses, and salaries — these costs can affect your earnings.
Depending on your industry, they may be so numerous that they dry up your cash flow and limit your ability to make a living. When you join an established moving company franchise, your overhead will be minimal, so you won’t have to worry about making ends meet each month.
Speedy Returns on Your Investment
Money isn’t the only thing you’ll be investing in as a franchisee. It’s all your time and effort as you build your place within the industry. You need to make sure it’s worth it. Your Return on Investment (ROI) is a crucial yardstick for evaluating a franchise’s performance, letting you know the net profit you gain.
When it comes to ROI, the moving industry has tremendous growth value. And, as we’ve weathered the storm of COVID-19 better than most, we know it’s a recession-proof industry, too. People will always need to move, and you’ll be there to help them.
Easy to Scale and Expand
A dynamic and flexible industry is essential to your ability to make gains as a franchisee. It allows you to adapt to the changing markets and needs of your customers.
Although you’ll likely find your start as a residential mover offering these basic home moving services, the industry has plenty of opportunities for expansion. Once you find your footing, you can grow to include the following services as a moving company:
- Commercial Projects
- Junk Removal
- Packing and Unpacking
Training and Support from Franchisor
Your professional relationship with your franchisor should be one based on the mutual investment. You’re investing in a proven business model, and they’re investing in your professional development so that you’ll represent their brand well.
Whether you’re looking to break through the industry or convert an existing local moving company, your franchisor should provide you with essential coaching to ensure you’re prepared for your first day — and every day after that.
Owning a Metropolitan Movers Franchise
As Canada’s premier moving company, we know we fulfill all the above criteria — and then some! Keep reading to learn why our franchisees are proud to be a part of the Metropolitan Movers team.
An Established Name
For the past 10 years, we’ve been perfecting the moving process for our customers, making sure we always provide reliable, efficient, and friendly assistance.
Today, the name Metropolitan Movers stands for unparalleled service in the industry, and our esteemed record shows it. We boast a near-perfect online review rating, seven Top Choice awards in the GTA, and a recent Canadian Franchise Association Hall of Fame award for our outstanding performance during the COVID-19 crisis.
When you become a franchisee, you join this decade-long history as part of our family, and you’ll inherit all the good work we’ve done to solidify our name as one of the best moving companies Canada has to offer. You can proudly share our name and all the accolades that come with it.
Our National Brand is Growing
Every year that our family gets a little bit bigger, our brand reach gets a lot wider. This year, we made it onto Canada’s Top 400 Growing Companies, the Globe and Mail’s list of businesses that have shown leadership and expansion in the past year.
Once you join our growing national brand, you can reap the benefits of our national marketing plan and expanding clientele portfolio. As a result, we guarantee you’ll earn $100,000 in revenue within your first 12 months of operation. In fact, we’re confident you’ll exceed this benchmark, as most franchisees generate roughly half a million dollars in their first 12 months.
Office and On-Field Training
We take great pride in our reputation as a national brand, and we recognize our franchisees play an enormous part in our success story. That’s why we provide expert training, support, and mentorship to ensure you have the tools to meet our customer’s high standards. Our two-week training program turns you into a leading industry professional both in the office and out in the field.
Eventually, you’ll have the necessary skills you need for your franchise to thrive on its own two feet. But, as is the benefit of joining an established franchise like Metropolitan Movers, you’ll always have our support team on your side. We provide ongoing assistance via an online learning platform and monthly webinars to ensure you’re happy and confident with your moving company. We also schedule regular meetings to review goals and spot areas for improvement.
Customer Engagement Center
Here at Metropolitan Movers, we value your work-life balance. That’s why we have a centralized customer engagement center to help you with administrative tasks. Our salespeople are your customer’s first point of contact as they book jobs and continue to provide a seamless experience for your customers. This frees you up to focus on growth without worrying about inconvenient calls from clients in your downtime.
Although our HQ may be in the GTA, we have franchise opportunities all over the country. Whether you live on the west coast, east coast, or somewhere in between, we can help you find the right fit for your needs.
