Only Two More Weeks Until the Toy Sale

The Paterson Toy Sale is only two weeks away! On December 5th and 6th, any kid can go to the Patterson Boys and Girls Club to purchase toys for extremely low prices. However, the event cannot run without toy donations! Cindy Myer, CEO of Ridgewood Moving Services (Ridgewood Movers), deeply cares about this event and supports it every year. She wants to keep the event alive and well for all families in our community!

Ridgewood Moving Services supports this event in a couple of different ways. In one way, we help out the toy sale by using our trucks to transport the toys! We head to multiple locations across the state to pick up donated toys and then drop them off in time for the event. You can view the full list of drop off locations here. In another way, our company helps out the toy sale by serving as a drop-off point for toys! If you come to our office in Mahwah at 575 Corporate Drive, we’ll take any toys you have as long as they’re in good condition and come with all the necessary parts!

I wanted to bring this up because I want to show everyone the boxes we are using at the office to store our toys:

Wrapped Boxes

How awesome is that? Ridgewood Moving Services can’t take credit for this, since we didn’t make these beautiful holiday decorations. Instead, the Mahwah Girl Scout Troop came to our warehouse to help out for the event by doing this for us! Thank you to all the girls that came to Ridgewood Moving Services to help us out! If you donate your toys to the office, they will be packed in these gorgeous boxes for the kids at the event.

These boxes are ready to collect unwanted, recycled, and gently used toys for families in the Paterson community. If you want to act, now’s your chance! We will not be collecting any more toys after December 4th, so please start donating to help make a difference in a child’s life.

If you would like to learn more about the event, please read the last blog post about the toy sale here. If you have any questions about the event, call our office at 201-529-2211 and ask for Alexandra Pico-Cabrera or email her at alexandra@ridgewoodmoving.com. Thanks for reading everyone!

November Testimonials

Every month, we receive amazing testimonials from our raving fans that have used us in the past. Our primary sources of testimonials come from our testimonials page, Yelp, Google +, or Angie’s List. The testimonial below is one that we received this month on our testimonials page:

Absolutely the best moving company we have ever used. Excellent sales staff, team of movers, and customer service. I highly recommend them. Great job!! – Anthony T.

This one’s short, sweet, and to the point! On the other hand, we also get people that have a lot to say and can write essay-length testimonials! The following testimonial is a bit different from others, since it was personally sent to Cindy, but it’s definitely worth sharing. Let’s take a look:

Cindy,

I wish I could have sent you this message last week but I was still unpacking and trying to get settled. Now that I feel like a “person” again, I just couldn’t wait to send you this message. Thank you isn’t enough for all of the coordinating and preparing you and Steve did for our 3 part move. From the time we met, I knew that you and Ridgewood Moving would be the mover of choice for us. Your professionalism and ability to process the many facets of this move was impressive. Unlike the average moving from point A to point B jobs, this move was particularly challenging due to our circumstances with the sale of our home, addition of an temporary apartment to add to the mix and an ever changing closing date.

Having access to Steve during the many twists and turns of this move made the process tolerable for me. When I presented him with a problem, he was able to grab a hold and run with it, returning with a solution, which gave me peace of mind.

Your packers were wonderful. They not only work efficiently, their finished product is like artwork. All of my finest and most treasured pieces arrived beautifully packed and safely to their new home.

The movers are unbelievable. I gave them a nickname of the “Olympic Move Team”. Not only are they organized and work like a finely tuned instrument, they were pleasant (most of the time smiles) even as they were carrying heavy pieces of furniture from room to room. They would ask important questions and not simply assume that I wanted something somewhere.

As you know, this was a huge move and they were relentless (not stopping for break or lunch) in order to get the job completed on Day 2 instead of dragging it out into Day 3. This was so greatly appreciated as I could use this extra day to begin organizing my new home.

Geraldo is such a pleasant man, always keeping me informed and making sure I was ok with how and where items were placed. Big smiles!
Dullah – Hard worker and if you hadn’t heard, helped my elderly neighbor as she was injured by a horse on her farm next door.
Russell – Sweetheart and most adorable. Very responsive when I made an inquiry.
Duncan – Equally as sweet. Works very well with Russell. Good team.
Ryan – Like his smiles, even as he was carrying one of my many wardrobe boxes up a million steps on an empty stomach. Great personality!
Chris – ‘The Brawn’ – If he wasn’t present, my favorite bedroom furniture probably would not have made it to my room. He is truly unbelievable in his capacity to manage the heaviest of pieces. As you know, I had several pieces which would test his ability and he managed without breaking a sweat.

If you would ask me if I could imagine my move being successful without the above individuals and Ridgewood Moving, I’d say NO WAY!

Thank you for everything.

Lisa F.

Look at that incredibly long and thoughtful response! The thing I love about this testimonial is that it doesn’t just talk about the service: it specifically talks about our movers individually and highlights their best qualities. This really does show that we are something special as a team. Lisa got to know our movers personally and enjoyed being around them. How many people can say that they became friends with their movers?

Would you like to leave a testimonial? If so, you can do so on our testimonials page, Yelp, Google +, or Angie’s List! If you chose to do so, don’t feel like you have to write it in a specific way. We love Lisa’s testimonial, but not everyone can write something that long. On the flip side, if you have more to say than a few lines, that’s okay too! Every voice counts, so please leave us a review or testimonial and spread the word about Ridgewood Moving Services. Thanks for reading everyone!

Donate Toys to the Upcoming Paterson Toy Sale

Do you have any toys lying around your house that you don’t need anymore? If so, then you should consider donating them to the Paterson Toy Sale now!

The Paterson Toy Sale is an event that Ridgewood Moving Services (Ridgewood Movers) holds in very high regard. When I spoke to CEO Cindy Myer about this upcoming event, she told me that it’s one of her favorite events of the year. She said that helping kids find toys for the holidays and seeing the joyful expression on their faces really warms her heart. We all share Cindy’s feelings about the toy sale at Ridgewood Moving Services, which is exactly why we’ve been helping them out for 20 consecutive years!

When The Patterson Toy Sale started 31 years ago, the event was on a much smaller scale. A small, but dedicated group of volunteers from Bergen Highland United Methodist Church in Upper Saddle River donated a box of toys they found to kids that would need them at the Patterson Boys and Girls Club. The event was born from just one box, yet it instantly became a massive hit. Take a look at how many toys are donated to the event today:

Toys

Wow! That’s a lot of toys! Of course, it’s harder to manage a huge load of toys in comparison to a single box of toys. That’s why Ridgewood Moving Services volunteers for the event every year! Someone needs to help pick up and move all of these toys, so we use our reliable moving trucks to get the job done. We use our time and resources for more than just moving clients, we help out our community as well!

This year, we’re aiming to make the Paterson Toy Sale bigger and better than ever before. However, we can’t do this without your help! Any toy can be donated as long as it’s clean, in good condition, and has all the necessary parts to make a complete set. We now have over double the amount of drop-off locations for toys in comparison to previous years, so check out the list below and go to any of these places if you have toys to give away:

1. Ridgewood Moving Services (Mahwah)
2. Csubs (Montvale)
3. RE/MAX (Franklin Lakes)
4. Fitness 19 (River Vale)
5. Doggy Deuce (Woodcliff Lake)
6. Planet Swirl (Ramsey)

Cindy Toys

Toys are being accepted for donation from now until December 4th. The event will be held on December 5th (afternoon to evening) and December 6th (morning to afternoon) at the Patterson Boys and Girls Club, which is at 264 21st Ave, Paterson, NJ. Both days are completely different from each other. On December 5th, kids are allowed to enter the sale by themselves as their parents wait outside for them to finish. The volunteers at the event will help the kids out while they chose their toys. However, December 6th opens the event to the everyone to create a more family-oriented experience. If you want to attend, make sure you pick the day that suits you the most!

Do you have any questions about the event? Don’t hesitate to contact us for help! Alexandra Pico-Cabrera can answer any questions that you might have. If you would like to speak with her, you can call 201-529-2211 or email her at alexandra@ridgewoodmoving.com. Thank you everyone for reading!

October Testimonials

Welcome to this month’s installment of testimonials! When we receive an excess of positive testimonials in a month, we highlight some of our biggest raving fans. We rely on our fans to spread the word about Ridgewood Moving Services (Ridgewood Movers), so thank you to everyone that contributed for this month’s post!

Here’s a large, glowing review found on our testimonial page:

JoAnn: “Truly look no further for the best moving company I’ve ever dealt with. This is from someone who has moved four (4) times, and not until my 4th time can I truly say it went perfectly. Except for the weather which Ridgewood Movers had no control over, but made all necessary adjustments and handled like true professionals.

Our home sold and buyers wanted it as soon as possible. With all the craziness of downsizing, I might have forgotten one very important component: a moving company. Please be aware this is only two (2) weeks before. When I called the office and explained my situation the staff was soon helpful, called me back with an appointment for the next day. Cindy came heard my many problems besides this crazy move. From the moment she walked through my front door I somehow knew I was in good hands.

The very next day I had my estimate and the game plan for the entire move, which at this point was exactly one (1) week away. I booked them immediately and have no regrets at all. Chris and Jimey were in my driveway on time, the first of two (2) trucks. FYI these guys were so professional and just GREAT to work with, they handled everything and supervised the other truck and workers. When they first got there I was a little nervous, one of them said to me, “not to worry they’ve got it,” and you knew they had it! For once everything went perfectly.

The crew went out of their way to make sure everything was covered with the bad weather we had that day. Neat, clean and extremely courteous, on one of your most stressful days they had your back. The estimate was right in range, no surprises, as I had in past moves. Trust me, look no further, you’ve found the right moving company, you can now relax.”

This next one came as a shock to us, as one of our clients sent us flowers after the move! Cindy Myer, CEO of Ridgewood Moving Services, was really surprised and said, “We’re supposed to be the ones sending our clients flowers!”

Flowers

The fact that our clients would even think to send such a kind gesture to us remains as testament to the high quality of the service we provide. The flowers came with a card, which says:

“Thank you isn’t enough. Couldn’t have gotten through the day without you and your fabulous guys, you are amazing! All our thanks: Nancy and Phil.”

We also receive lots of short testimonials that are straight to the point! Here are some that I picked straight from the testimonials page:

Nick: “Very fine service. I will call again.”

Elizabeth: “Would definitely recommend you to friends.”

Susan and Richard: “Cindy – Thanks, we are loving our new digs!”

Sandy: “The movers worked so hard! Thanks again for everything!”

Interview: Trish McAleer from the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge

Ridgewood Moving Services (Ridgewood Movers) is constantly looking for ways to support the community. A couple of weeks ago, Cindy Myer went to visit the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge (RBAI) to find out more about the organization and the animals they save. When Trish McAleer, executive director of RBAI, told Cindy about her need for items like blankets for the animals, Cindy realized that she could ask her clients to donate them if they no longer need them after they move. Even though we’re a moving company, situations like this prove that there are plenty of ways that we can help others!

When I heard about this, I became fascinated with RBAI. I wanted to know more about the organization and Trish herself, so I interviewed her for our readers to see! I’m glad I did it too because it gave me the chance to learn about such an amazing non-profit organization. Check it out:

Explain a little bit about yourself and your background.

“My name is Trish McAleer. Before I was here at Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge I spent ten years working to provide cancer support and research for a rare cancer called Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor or GIST with the Life Raft Group. It was an amazing experience and I met so many beyond courageous people that still inspire me today.”

What is the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge?

“Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge or RBARI as many of our neighbors call us is a no-kill, 501c3 Animal Refuge and Adoption Center supporting animals in need since 1978. We help approximately 1,000 dogs and cats a year through finding them loving forever homes or helping them get to other rescue groups that can.”

What do you for the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge?

“I am the executive director at RBARI meaning that I do whatever it takes to forward our mission and save as many animals as we can.”

Trisha

Why did you decide to work for the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge?

“I’ve never met an animal I didn’t like and I am so honored to be able to contribute to the safety of so many. It’s a long story but my past interactions with other shelters really lit a fire in my belly about the need for experienced management and someone who could really communicate the mission. When this position opened I researched, met the staff and got to know the organization better until I knew without a doubt it was a safe loving place for our shelter pets. And with that foundation I knew that I could put my skills to use to get us to the point of saving even more animals and making an educational impact on our surrounding communities.”

Do you have a favorite thing about working there or a touching moment you’d like to share?

“There are more touching moments than I can count. I meet a new furry friend that touches my heart almost every day. Just last week I had taken home a foster dog. He was going to one of our rescue partners because the shelter was full. In the one night I spent with this little friend he must have woken me up 30 times to cuddle. He was so happy to have affection after what clearly had been so long. As I was petting him I ran my hand down his spine and I felt every single bone. And it struck me how pure his little heart is to still trust us after someone clearly casted him aside. Rescue is never easy but at RBARI once a dog or cat comes to us they are safe and that’s an amazing gift to be able to give to such deserving little souls.”

Is the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge accepting any kind of donations? How can people get involved?

“We’re always accepting donations! You can donate funds or you can donate items that are on our wish list. We are always in need and there’s never a shortage of animals who need our help so the support we get really sustains our efforts. We also heavily rely on our volunteers for help – that includes dog walking, cat socialization, hosting food drives, helping us fundraise, cleaning and representing us at events.”

Is there anything else that you would like to add that hasn’t been mentioned?

“I’d like to invite anyone interested in opening up their family to a new pet to come down and meet our adoptables! They are overwhelmingly cute!”
________________________________________________________________________

Thanks for the interview Trish! If you would like to meet the pets at RBAI, visit them at 2 Shelter Lane, Oakland, NJ 07436. You can adopt an animal on Tuesday & Thursday (1pm-8pm), Wednesday (12pm-4pm), and Saturday & Sunday (11am-4pm). Thanks for reading everyone! Check the blog next week for another post.

Make a Donation to the Bag a Lunch, Help a Bunch Program

As you may know, we at Ridgewood Moving Services (Ridgewood Movers) like to help out our local community at any opportunity possible. This is thanks to our CEO, Cindy Myer, who really enjoys incorporating philanthropy into her business model and serves as an inspiration to our employees. The organizations we support the most are Move For Hunger, Shelter Our Sisters, and the annual Paterson Toy Sale, but we also promote other events that we are passionate about. One of those events is Table to Table’s upcoming Bag a Lunch, Help a Bunch program, which is being presented by ShopRite Inserra Supermarkets, Inc.

This campaign’s mission is to help out more than a million people in New Jersey that are suffering from starvation. Helping them out is really easy: simply donate the number of money you typically spend on lunch, place it inside a brown paper bag, and hand it to a representative from Table to Table. The event is being held on October 15th, but if that doesn’t work for you, you can also make a donation online! Every donation, no matter the size, will definitely help out starving families across New Jersey.

Bag

Table to Table is not new to this sort of event. The organization has been around since 1999, making it the first and only food rescue program in New Jersey. Claire Insalata Poulos was inspired to start the organization after discovering that tons of fresh food is thrown out every single day at restaurants. Currently, it owns five refrigerated trucks that serve over 80 hunger relief agencies in the state. Bag a Lunch, Help a Bunch is the next step for Table to Table, which will help them receive the donations they need to continue feeding starving families.

If you like the idea of this event, please visit its website. Their site does a terrific job of explaining the event in more detail and will show you how to become a part of Bag a Lunch, Help a Bunch program. If you want to make an online donation to Table to Table, then please click here. Ridgewood Moving Services is in full support of this event and will even have its own employees participate! If you want to help as well, then join us and make a donation when October 15th comes by. Thanks for reading everyone!

Retrospective: Notable Ridgewood Moving Services’ Awards

If you haven’t heard, CEO Cindy Myer was recently announced as one of the Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs & Business Owners for her hard work at Ridgewood Moving Services! Even though Cindy is not actively looking to earn rewards for her work, her company has constantly been recognized for its exceptional service in the moving industry. To celebrate Cindy’s most recent recognition, I’ve compiled a list of five other notable awards that Ridgewood Moving Services has received. Take a look below to find out why our moving company is one of the best in the business:

1. The Bill Moynihan Special Service Award (NJ Warehousemen & Movers Association – 2010)

njwma-logo-full


The Bill Moynihan Special Service Award
was one of the earliest recognitions that Ridgewood Moving Services received under Cindy’s management. Being a member of the New Jersey Warehousemen & Movers Association, Cindy was given this award for tirelessly working to better the association and the industry itself. This is a prestigious award because it is only given out to those that go above and beyond as a member of the organization.

2. Mover of the Year Award (NJWMA – 2013)

Mover Award

The Mover of the Year award was a big deal for both Ridgewood Moving Services and Cindy herself. This is because Cindy, a person that previously knew nothing about the moving industry, was able to turn things around and manage her company effectively. When Cindy accepted this award, she said the following:

“Eight years ago, I took over a business that I had no idea how to run, in an industry I knew nothing about. To receive this award is a true testament to the hard work and dedication of the Ridgewood Moving team – both the dedicated movers as well as the office staff. Also, the support I received from my colleagues in the moving industry has been invaluable. I am grateful to those people that have helped me make this ongoing journey – toward continual excellence and service of Ridgewood Moving’s clientele – a meaningful one.”

3. Certificate of Commendation Award (Bergen County Certificate – 2013)

Award

This award was given by Bergen County for efforts during the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Cindy and the team of Ridgewood Moving used its moving trucks to deliver much needed food, clothing and supplies to Bergen Community College, where many families affected by the storm were temporarily housed.

4. Corporate Generosity and Good Works of Business (CIANJ – 2014)

CIANJ

Ridgewood Moving Services works with a lot of nonprofit organizations, such as Shelter Our Sisters and Move For Hunger, to give back to our local community. The company also donates its resources annually to a Toy Sale by loading its trucks with toys for the event. Because of this, CIANJ recognized Ridgewood Moving Services with an award for Corporate Generosity and Good Works of Business.

5. Best Fifty Women in Business (NJBIZ – 2014)

NJBIZ

The Best Fifty Women in Business awards program honors New Jersey’s most dynamic women in business that have been making headlines in their field. To qualify, a nominee had to meet selection criteria that included living or working in New Jersey and holding significant authority for decision making in her company.

“We are truly fortunate to have the opportunity to recognize this outstanding group of women.” said Thomas Curtin, publisher of NJBIZ. “As business and community leaders, they are constantly redefining success within and outside the business arena. On behalf of NJBIZ, we would like to thank and congratulate these 50 outstanding women for their dedication to New Jersey’s future.”

Cindy Myer Voted in the Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs

The CEO of Ridgewood Moving Services (Ridgewood Movers), Cindy Myer, has been recognized for her hard work in the moving industry once again! This time, Cindy has been voted as one of the top 25 leading women entrepreneurs and business owners.

The organization recognizing Cindy, called Leading Women Entrepreneurs (LWE), looks for women that are proficient in service, leadership, contribution to their communities, and the state’s economic recovery. Those that use LWE’s website can nominate any business women of their choice based on these credentials. After many user votes, the results were announced on September 19th and Cindy was awarded with this honorable title! You can see the official tweet posted by LWE below:

There are two major reasons why Cindy was able to reach this position. First, Cindy is an amazing business woman that was able to revive Ridgewood Moving Services when it needed her the most. Since then, she has managed the company effectively, making it the best moving company in Bergen County. She also has been recognized for her efforts in the past, such as the best 50 women in business award by NJBIZ and a corporate generosity and good works of business award from Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey (CIANJ). Cindy’s work with non-profit organizations, such as Shelter Our Sisters and Move For Hunger, have also made her a strong candidate for LWE’s award this year.

LWE

The second reason why Cindy won is our raving fans. As stated previously, you can only be recognized for this position if you vote on LWE’s website. That means people that really love Ridgewood Moving Services took the time to vote for Cindy on the website! Thank you everyone that voted for Cindy and helped her achieve this!

Interview: Christina Lowe

A few months ago, I interviewed Alexandra Pico-Cabrera and got to learn a lot about who she is as a person and an employee at Ridgewood Moving Services (Ridgewood Movers). I really enjoyed interviewing her because I was able to get a better understanding of the kind of people that work at the company early on in my employment. Because I enjoyed this so much, I was really drawn to interviewing our newest employee, Christina Lowe.

Christina Lowe

Moving Into the Moving Industry

Christina’s interview was fascinating because I got to hear from the perspective of someone that hasn’t worked at Ridgewood Moving Services very long, yet she said that she already had 14 years of experience in the moving industry.

“I was in the other side, which is the third party side, that works directly with the moving side,” she said “So my world set up appliance disconnects and crating and pool table disassemblies and all that.”

When she was 22, she started working for this third party company as a customer service representative. However, as the years went on, she moved up the chain fast and eventually became a general manager.

“I’m a loyal employee. Whether I have my issues or not, I just stick with it thinking [to] try and implement change whether they accept it or not,” she said. “I’m good at what I do once I do it and I just stuck with it.”

Christina eventually stopped working for this company and started to look for new work opportunities at the age of 37. When she turned to her former boss for help, he recommended the open moving consultant position at Ridgewood Moving Services.

“I went to him and said ‘What’s the deal with them?’ and he said ‘[Ridgewood Moving Services is a] great company, [Cindy is a] great person to work for, Cindy’s a great person, she’s very business oriented and does a lot for the industry,’” she said. “It just came highly recommended and it made me feel comfortable.”

Working on the Other Side

Christina has worked with moving and storage in the past, but being a moving consultant is still a completely new to her as a position.

“I answer phones, speak to customers, set up their moves, give them confirmation calls, [and] handle the paperwork,” she said. “I’m like a point of contact for them for questions in their move other than contacting the salesperson.”

Even though she’s taking on all of these new tasks at once, she said that feels very comfortable because her coworkers support her.

“Everybody’s very friendly, more so than I expected and very willing to help and will answer my questions even though they’re in the middle of something,” she said. “It’s great, especially when you’re new.”

Christina said that she really likes her job so far because her workload is very diverse. She also really enjoys working with people on a personal level in the office.

“When those little things pop up, like customers come in the door [and] drivers come in from their day, I like to her their stories about their day,” she said. “That I love.”

Christina said that her new job at Ridgewood Moving Services was a lot better than she expected. She feels happy to work for the company and likes her new position as a moving consultant.

“I feel good here so far,” she said. “Even though it’s been a week and two days, it’s been good.”
