Dircks Moving Services was fortunate enough to be named as a finalist for the Better Business Bureau’s Ethics Award for 2011. This was one of the most rewarding awards that we’ve ever competed for. Moving is a very stressful time and the moving industry is often attacked for lacking in ethics and moral responsibility with regard to this difficult activity. We’ve always believed in doing the right thing and we often go overboard to ensure that our customers have an outstanding experience when moving with us. I’m very proud to say that we’ve never ended up in court over an issue with our customers. We make sure that our customer feels that we’ve treated them right when we move them. We often say, “treat them as if they are your own mother.”
As I stood backstage Thursday night with the other 14 finalists prior to being introduced to the attendees of the dinner, a sense of pride engulfed me as I visited with the most ethical companies in Phoenix for those brief moments. It then struck me that I was among them – Dircks was really being recognized as one of the best. At that moment, it wasn’t important to me whether we won or not – I was in the company of the most ethical businesses in Phoenix. This feeling was among the proudest moments of my career and for that, all of us at Dircks Moving Services are very grateful.
