For the last five and a half years, Josh Green has been in the moving business, helping residents and businesses manage one of the most exciting and unnerving life experiences: moving to a new home or workspace. But in June 2014, he decided to dive into the industry on his own by launching Green Frog Moving – a local company serving local people. As most entrepreneurs do, he’s found that working for himself has its immense benefits. “I’m doing what I’ve always loved doing, but now, I get to work for myself,” he said.
The company focuses on residential household moving, but it also specializes in commercial and piano moving. Unlike other companies, Green Frog Moving offers 100 percent liability insurance, so anything that’s touched is completely covered. “Many moving companies only cover items at 50 cents per pound and what that means to a customer is if they have a $1,000 TV that weighs 100 pounds and it’s broken, they’ll only be paid $50 through insurance.” Every employee in the company is carefully screened, making not only the home’s possessions safe, but the people too.
Before working in the moving industry, Green honed his skills in sales. This has positioned him well in his current role as owner, priding himself and his business in quality customer service. In the coming year, Green expects business to grow tremendously with his contacts in the builder and realty markets. “I think the sky’s the limit,” he said.
