In this episode Andrew White, Managing Director of Dream Move Relocation, discusses how he got involved in working with movers some 15 years ago, helping with the relocation of employees, individuals, families, and pets.
Dream Move Relocation is based in the North West, but can operate nationwide, and assist with the finding of properties for people relocating to the UK, including helping with setting the property up, legals, schooling, social activities, banking, and much, much more!
Andrews’s challenges, especially early on was starting his own business, with the mindset of going from an employee to an employer and the mental pressure involved. Covid was another challenge for Andrew with no one able or even wanting to relocate, and today's challenge is a lack of available properties.
The one thing Andrew would like to change from his moving, or rather relocation past is the timeline and bringing it into modern times and streamlining the process.
Andrew’s highpoint of being within the industry is the personal aspect.
The one thing Andrew would like to change within the industry is the timeline, and Andrew believes he could work better with the moving industry by being an add-on service which could streamline the moving process.
The advice Andrew would give himself just starting out again is to be more humanistic and not to treat people as numbers.
In the next 5 years Andrew would like an element of growth but also keeping the service provided very personal, and utilising technology even more. Industry wise, it will be a tougher market with less choice of properties.
Outside of the industry Andrew enjoys the outdoors, playing tennis, football and time in the Peak District with his wife and 2 children.
And as always we end Moving Matters with a quaint moving story of friendship.
