Speak With Reputable Business Leaders at the Women For Women Networking Event

At Ridgewood Moving Services, we support all women that are trying to make a living in the business world.

Name: Ashley Czesak
Move date: 4/4/15
Origin: Mahwah, NJ 07430
Destination: Park Ridge, NJ 07656

“My husband and I were truly impressed by this company. We moved locally at the beginning of the month. Our closing date was actually sooner then we originally planed so we called the company with short notice and were able to get someone out for an estimate and secured our moving date with no problem at all. In fact, I had called a few other companies and they did not do an estimate in person which I am sure can contribute to unexpected costs down the line. From my first phone call, to the gentleman that did the estimate, to the actually moving crew – we were met with nothing but professional and courteous staff. I was pleasantly surprised that our final cost was actually LESS then the original estimate. They estimated the move taking a lot longer then it did. The crew was diligent, respectful, and fast paced. I would recommend this company to anyone!”

Video: Packing Demonstration

Recently, we wrote a post talking about the Clutter Clashers, a local organization that teaches individuals and companies about proper organization and design. One of the highlights of our meeting together was the presentation that our movers gave to the Clutter Clashers. Because both organizations have knowledge that is beneficial to the other, we spent time talking about how our businesses function.

For example, our professional movers know a lot about packing. So, in order to help the Clutter Clashers provide a better organization service, we showed them some handy techniques. Now, you can see some of these very tips for yourself in the video below!

If you need to move and plan on packing yourself, then you should definitely consider watching this video! This will teach you to make the most of the space in a moving box, making your move as efficient as possible. But if that’s something that you don’t want to handle, don’t forget that we offer a packing service that will make your life easier. That’s because our Ridgewood Movers are experts at what they do!

Anita Allen Is Named as an Honoree for the Center for Hope and Safety’s Annual Gala

Anita Allen, founder and president of Allen Advisory Group, was named as a distinguished honoree for the Center for Hope and Safety’s upcoming Annual Gala on April 13, 2015. She will be recognized for her exceptional effort in raising roughly $2,065,000 during a successful capital campaign that funded the purchase and renovation of the Center for Hope and Safety’s newest building, which houses all non-emergency services as well as the administrative headquarters.

“The co-chairs want to thank all the people that supported the capital campaign,” said Allen. “The new building will act as a launching pad for the future success of the agency.”

Anita

The Center for Hope and Safety purchased the building after seeing the need to provide community-based services for those that do not need emergency aid from its shelter but still require support. The new building’s primary functions include a creative arts therapy program, an outreach office, and the administration headquarters. Before the campaign started, it was initially estimated that it would take at least 3 full years to raise the funds for the Community Services Center. But Allen, her co-chairs, and the Capital Campaign Committee were able to reach the goal in 2 years.

When Allen is not working with Fortune 1000 businesses and entrepreneurial start-up companies as president of her own consulting firm, she tirelessly works with the Center for Hope and Safety to support their mission of assisting women and children that are victims of domestic violence. Allen was a past president of the Center for Hope and Safety Board for 5 years and currently serves on the board of the National Association of Corporate Directors New Jersey (NACDNJ).

Our first post comes from Yelp, which is a review site that we are featured on. If you are a raving fan, then use this website to help boost our review score like Nicole did!

Nicole A.

We had a great experience with Ridgewood Moving Services. They were able to accommodate our requested date (a Saturday), quoted us at a reasonable price, and arrived on time and ready to work. The 2 guys they sent were FANTASTIC! Professional and efficient. We had packed up most of the stuff ourselves, but they shrink-wrapped everything we needed and were precision-like in their packing of the truck. We ended up going over the time by one hour and the additional monies were negligible. I think we paid an extra $55, but we only moved from one town to the next.

The next three posts come from our testimonials page. Check them out to see why people think we’re one of the best moving companies in New Jersey:

Best moving company around! by Marina Martire

We called Ridgewood Moving very last minute (as our closing date was pushed all over the place) and they were able to accommodate us with no hesitation. We have used them in the past and would definitely use them again and recommend to anyone we know! Thanks again!

What a Great Team! by Robin

My closing date, and therefore moving date, was changed 3 times, and not once did Ridgewood Movers ever give me a hard time! I did this move on my own – but was not alone the entire time because of the support, help and kindness of Cindy and her Staff. I could not have done it and remained sane without them – they are the best! Will recommend them to everyone! Robin Smith

Worry Free by Bill Brown

The whole process was “worry free”. Staff did a great job for me from beginning to end.

Ridgewood Moving Services Receives Outstanding Sales Award

Ridgewood Moving Services (Ridgewood Moving) has recently been recognized for its hard work by many organizations. Last October, CEO Cindy Myer received an award for being one of LWE’s Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs & Business Owners for her exceptional work at the company.

Let’s also not forget that CIANJ awarded Ridgewood Moving with an award for Corporate Generosity and Good Works of Business due to helping nonprofit organizations recently as well!

Perhaps the most prestigious award Ridgewood Moving has ever won was the Mover of the Year Award in 2013, which served as a testament to the entire team’s work. This was eight years after Cindy took over the company without any knowledge of the moving business, yet she was still able to run the business successfully. Fast-forward to today, and Ridgewood Moving is still being honored for it’s outstanding work as a moving company. This month, Bekins Van Lines awarded Ridgewood Moving Services with an Oustanding Sales Award, showing that we’re still progressing after receiving the Mover of the Year Award!

Steve Award

Ridgewood Moving is an agent of Bekins Van Lines, which is a great partnership because it allows us to provide a long distance moving service to our clients that would like to move out of New Jersey. On March 9th, Bekins gave the Outstanding Sales Award to Steve Dalzell, our general manager, during the Atlantic City Regional Meeting as shown above. The award was given to Ridgewood Moving services for recognition of our superior sales achievement and increased line haul volume in 2014. Thank you Bekins for the generous award!
