Moving Company Business Plan

Moving companies are highly service and location oriented, which means that they can startup with little capital if the entrepreneur is capable of acquiring a truck and part-time staff. However, the market is very competitive with some moving companies already locally established with a well-recognized brand. In order to enter the market, a small amount of investment and market positioning strategy is required. Pro Business Plans has worked with moving companies in the past and has identified the following sections as key differentiating elements for any moving company.

Business Model

The business model of a moving company is designed to effectively communicate how the moving company will be structured. Some moving companies are operated by a single person with a part-time or commission based staff, whereas the owners take a more passive role or focus on business development while hiring a part-time moving team with their own truck in others. The business model of moving companies are relatively consistent, but if you have an innovative approach, it can help you to gain stronger positioning in the market and potentially scale your brand.




Marketing Plan

A moving company that enters the market should focus around how it will quickly acquire customers at the lowest possible cost. There are many paid advertising strategies that will win customers, but they are very expensive and their return on investment is challenging to measure. A marketing strategy that is focused around minimizing customer acquisition cost will be most effective, but will often require some kind of market positioning. For instance, some moving companies focus on environmentally friendly moving practices and others employ well vetted professionals to establish trust.




Financial Projections

The financial projections for a moving company business plan is among the most important, as limits to truck capacity, the geographic restrictions, and local payroll costs will all determine the profitability with reasonable assurance. Professional financial projections may help your company to make such decisions as to modify the business model, alter the pricing strategy, or to better forecast profits. If the business plan is for a bank or investor, they are likely to require that the financial projections contain three to five year projections.
