The Element Moving and Storage, LLC team is invaluable to the success of our business. While Elle and Lee started this company, they knew it would never blossom without the contributions of quality individuals from sales to operations to the movers themselves. Working here is not something just anyone can do. It takes an attitude of professionalism and a commitment to bringing value to the customer regardless of job size or customer identity.
When you go with Element Moving and Storage, LLC, you can expect to have the best people in this industry working for you.
Here’s an overview of our team and how they will help your move.
Elle’s business acumen can be seen in the exponential growth of Element Moving and Storage, LLC since 2010.
While the best marketing is a high-quality product or service such as the kind Element Moving and Storage, LLC provides, she knows how to get the word out and attract more customers as evidenced by the 400 percent growth in average monthly jobs from business-launch to the present.
Elle also is a quality teambuilder with a talent for finding balanced professionals who are good at what they do and committed to going the extra mile for their customers.
Lee is a moving industry veteran, who co-founded Element Moving and Storage, LLC with the desire to give customers what they were missing from other moving companies.
His belief that a big move is about more than just getting from point A to point B has powered the mission and performance of the company over time. Lee didn’t want to hire just anyone to help with this mission. He wanted professionals, and his industry knowledge and experience made that possible.
With complete buy-in from his team, Lee has overseen the training and professional development of his crews from day one. Thanks, in part, to Lee, customers know their belongings are in the best hands through every part of their relocation or storage needs.
