We are excited to welcome new franchisees, John and Julie Woolslayer of Tulsa, Oklahoma to the Great Day Moving team! Set to open their doors the beginning of May, the Woolslayers and their team of movers will serve the Tulsa metro area as well as the entire state of Oklahoma.
The couple completed franchise training at Crownbound University in Kansas City, Kansas in early March. The Woolslayers were instructed on various aspects of running a successful moving business. The program is a combination of both classroom and on-the-job training. Their training covered operational guidelines such as truck operations, managing employees, and instruction on the automated systems and processes.
They also learned about the insurance policies required to legally and safely operate a moving company. John and Julie were educated on how to conduct local marketing in their territory and how to respectfully handle all customer relations and interact with the support center. During the on-the-job portion, they gained knowledge on moving and lifting techniques, truck packing and loading, and the use of proper tools and equipment to protect the customer’s belongings while being handled and during transit.
The training is an accumulation of everything the founders learned in growing their own, local moving company, Marathon Moving & Delivery… and much, much more. Mostly, the important stuff that they wished someone would have told them when they got started.
Look for our Great Day Moving trucks around the Tulsa area in the coming days! And if you need help with the heavy lifting, call 918-877-1971!
