Why We Are Craftsmen

When people think of ‘craftsmen,’ usually an image of a skilled woodworker or mechanic comes to mind. It’s unlikely that someone would think of a moving specialist or van operator. But here at Corrigan Moving Systems, we truly believe that each of our employees are craftsmen, and we have an expertise in our trade that is second to none.

We are occasionally asked why “Experience Craftsmanship” is our company’s tagline. The tagline came about from talking with our employees. Corrigan is a hard working, blue collar company, and our employees take immense pride in the work they do. Our employees have said that moving is a craft and not just a job, and we have to agree with them. Good moving skills are not learned overnight, but rather are accumulated over the years. Blanket wrapping furniture, carefully building loaded tiers of furniture, and navigating large pieces through doorways and tricky stairwells are all skills that a mover must master. Each move our employees work on is personally important to them, and our employees are proud to call moving their craft.

In a day and age where most companies are actively trying to take craftsmanship out of the process by automating every task imaginable, Corrigan stays true to the values of old. We don’t look at our work as simply moving furniture, but instead we look at it as moving people. We understand that it is a person’s experience throughout the move that really matters. It is our job to make sure that not only do our customer’s items get to their home safely, but that we take away the stress and hassle of the move as well.

The only way we can fulfill our own high expectations for every move is by employing the best people in the business and holding ourselves to the highest standards. Every person at Corrigan is committed to providing the best moving experience possible. Our employees enjoy their work, and it shows through as a unique personal touch on each move that is hard to find nowadays.

If you or your business is looking to move any time in the future, we encourage you to consider Corrigan.  There is no better way to learn why we call ourselves craftsmen than to experience it for yourself.

As much as moving to a new place can delightful, it is also
a very difficult job to move all your furniture and home appliances to the new
place. This is why the work of a mover is nothing less than that of craftsman.
A mover’s work is very delicate and if this delicacy is not taken into account
you won’t in one piece.

It is true that are actually
craftsmen. Even if they do not craft something physical, but they do craft out
a whole plan for moving your valuable good from one place to the other without
causing any damage to them; that is also a form of art.
