What Is a Movers, Not Shakers! Franchise?

New York City’s #1 green moving franchise is poised for a nationwide expansion

If you could design the best possible business to get into right now, investing in an environmentally sustainable moving business would be at the top of the list.

The reason is simple. The moving industry is in a period of rapid growth, unlikely to slow down anytime soon. Companies that offer sustainable alternatives to the wasteful practices created by traditional moving companies have a tremendous consumer advantage.

Enter Movers, Not Shakers!, the recession-resistant, essential franchise opportunity you’ve been searching for.

Founded in 2002 by a former stockbroker who wanted out of corporate America, Movers, Not Shakers! has become New York City’s number one green moving company. After 20 years of continued growth, Movers, Not Shakers! is franchising at exactly the moment when the growth of the moving industry and our collective awareness of environmental responsibility is at an all-time high.

This makes Movers, Not Shakers! the most exciting franchise opportunity to hit the $86 billion moving industry in a long, long time.

“Now is the best time to invest in a Movers, Not Shakers! Franchise,” says Mark Ehrhardt, President and Founder of Movers, Not Shakers! “The moving industry is growing faster than ever, and people are thirsting for sustainable alternatives. We’ve been in the moving business for 20 years and we’ve been green since 2007. We didn’t decide to franchise until we knew we could replicate our success in any market – and as the moving industry continues to grow, we’re ready to knock the cover off the ball. If you act quickly, you can be part of something incredible – as we’re going to rapidly expand nationwide.”

Green is good for the environment and it’s also the color of money

Movers, Not Shakers! pioneered the idea that a moving company could be environmentally responsible and wildly successful. It turns out that when given the option to choose between a company that practices sustainability and a company that does not, consumers vote their ethics with their pocketbooks.

Our commitment to sustainability is real. Mark Ehrhardt, our Founder and President, has been passionate about environmental activism since he was in college. When he noticed just how much waste was created by traditional companies, he saw an opportunity to do better and be better.

All of our vehicles run on biodiesel fuel, and we move everything in reusable bins. The result is a moving business that delivers world-class service without any of the waste. It’s no wonder why our phone hasn’t stopped ringing in over 20 years.

“Going green was the best business decision I ever made,” Mark says. “Not only does it differentiate us from our competitors, but it also acts as a way to seal the deal when talking to potential customers. Everyone knows the threats to our environment, and if they can do business with a company that is doing the right thing, they will. It’s as simple as that.”

We’ve done all the heavy lifting for you

While Movers, Not Shakers! may be new to franchising, we’ve spent the last 20 years proving that our moving business model works. In that time, we’ve made significant investments in training, technology, and the leadership team necessary to help you thrive as a franchise owner.

On the technology front, our proprietary software is unlike anything else in the moving industry. Rather than try to modify an existing CRM software like everyone else, we knew that we had to build our own from scratch.

Our software is designed to make the running of this business as simple as possible. It helps with everything from:

  • Managing leadflow
  • Closing deals
  • Managing appointments & workflow
  • Alerting employees to the contents of the move
  • And much, much more.

In addition to our software, our training program leaves nothing to chance. You will learn how to master every aspect of the business model, including:

  • Effective marketing in your community
  • How to win residential and commercial business
  • Delivering a best-in-class moving experience
  • Leading a team that believes in your business
  • How to scale your business over the long term
  • And much, much more!

But what really separates Movers, Not Shakers! as a franchise opportunity from the competition is access to our leadership team. Other brands in this segment limit access to their executive team and offer little personalized coaching and mentorship. Movers, Not Shakers! is the exact opposite. You will learn directly from the people who have built this brand from the ground up. From day one and every day after, we will be in your corner.

“We’re absolutely committed to the success of our franchise owners,” says Matt Stewart, Director of Sales at Movers, Not Shakers! “You’re going to start 20 years ahead by franchising with us.
