3rd Jun 2021 Down to Business

Busy schedules have become a part of everyday lives. Unemployed or employed, people always have something or the other on their day's list that they need to take care of.

Going to work daily, meeting deadlines, commuting on public transport, taking care of household necessities; all of these in 24-hours makes a person's life difficult. They become so exhausted that there is no extra energy left in them to do something else.

The tight schedule has taken over people’s minds and life so much that they have become dependent on different products and services to do their work. Hiring a maid to do all the house chores or a dog sitter to take care of the dog; are tasks that any person can easily perform but choose not to do because of shortage of time and unavailability. Another very popular service that people acquire is moving.


Moving is a hectic process that every person dreads. Nobody likes the hassle of emptying their house, loading their goods, and taking it to the other end of the city or to another country. So, to make people’s lives easier, moving companies takes this load off them and do all the work, and one of these companies is International Van Lines, Inc.

International Van Lines, Inc is a US-based moving company that covers long-distance, auto transport, and international relocations. Because of the nationwide warehouses, IVL supports pickups in almost every state in the US. The company was founded primarily in 2000 as International Moving and Logistics Company by Josh Morales, who now is its CEO. In 2004, Josh got the first truck to explore the local moving industry. He realized that there was a huge scope in the industry and plenty of space to work with, and so he diverted his attention towards it. He expanded his fleet and offered long-distance moving services.

Quality Is Not an Act; It Is a Habit

As Josh formerly worked for an international freight forwarder, he pointed out many flaws with their processes. He noticed that there was mismanagement with goods and a lack of good quality service. This instigated him to start his own business where quality would not be compromised.

Quality of the service was a priority for International Van Lines, Inc since day one. From trained professionals, high-quality packaging materials experienced porters to smoothly handled tasks; each operation by IVL depicts quality. Another crucial factor that adds value to their work is customer satisfaction.
