Quality Service: Household Move
Nothing earns a customer’s trust during household move like quality. We’ve always known that at Allied. In fact, while some van lines talk quality, you’ve probably discovered it’s difficult for them to provide any tangible evidence to support their claim. Not a problem at Allied.
Quality Household Moving Services from Allied
In 1995, Allied Pickfords introduced our Quality Service Audit (QSA) to assure our customers of getting the highest quality household moving service available anywhere. Through extensive research, we identified the things that were most responsible for customer satisfaction during their household moving experience. We used the information we gathered to develop a uniquely comprehensive and accurate customer service satisfaction survey, conducted by an independent third party, and continue to use this system to raise the bar for setting quality performance measurement standards.
Based on what we’ve learned, we have developed an assortment of exclusive, quality-enhancing programs to assure every move we make is the right move:
Our Quality Alliance is a team of agents, drivers and other employees working to ensure that Allied is constantly striving to maintain and improve each area of service. The Alliance has developed and implemented a set of quality standards that rank as the most comprehensive in the industry.
Allied drivers are specially trained at our regional Allied University campus in the proper techniques of maneuvering furniture and loading a truck. Courses include customer service, safety and equipment standards. All Allied drivers attend an intensive three-day session that combines classroom education with hands-on moving instruction.
Allied Master Movers
Motivating our drivers to reach new levels of performance and expertise is what keeps our service levels growing and improving. There are 10 rigorous standards a driver must meet in order to attain the title of Allied Master Mover including two years of service, as well as ranking in the top percentage of all drivers in customer service survey scores and claims.
Completion of our Master Moving School is also required. Designed in endowing drivers with a better understanding of how performance can continually be improved, curriculum covers the fleet ranking process, quality development, customer service, handling claims, operations, shipment processing, pricing and safety.
In order to retain Master Mover status, drivers must re-qualify each year.
Professional Driver Development Program
Drivers must complete this five-day, hands-on program designed to ensure driver quality in load/unload techniques, paperwork preparation, customer service, communication skills and claim prevention.
All vehicles must be inspected daily by the driver. There is a formal inspection twice a year. Vehicles must be cleaned inside and out regularly, and appearance must be at an acceptable level at all times.
