Our flatbed trucks and team were in action in Detroit helping move some cement parking blocks for Bedrock Real Estate Services. Much like all of their great spaces downtown, even their parking blocks are colorfully bold and full of personality. Nice work by Team Leader, Chis Heck and partner Nick Malles for facilitating the seamless transfer.

Today was an exciting day as our Team Members helped to move Oakland University‘s 49-bell practice carillon through campus. The practice carillon that we relocated is almost identical to the performance carillon that will be housed inside the new 151 foot tall Elliot Tower that will have regular live playing schedule this fall. This odd-looking keyboard console is the heaviest of all extant musical instruments and its music requires a lot of muscle to play. The pounding of the batons with clinched, bare fists and the stomping on the pedals can be a total body workout. Coincidently enough, moving of this beautiful piece of equipment can be an equally exhausting total body workout. Luckily, Professional Movers.com Team Leaders Danial Parker and James Crowley were on-site to offer strength and moving expertise to safely position it into its new location. We look forward to stopping back on campus to listen to University Carillonneur, Dennis Curry and Oakland University Music students as they serenade students with the marvelous bells. The bells and the clock-related equipment have been manufactured by The Verdin Company of Cinncinatti and the Royal Bellfoundry of Perir & Fritsen, Netherlands.

So the Kentucky Derby is known as the “most exciting 2 minutes in sports” however today our Team of Moving Stallions had the “most exciting 30 minutes in relocation” as they helped transfer the dPOP steed back to her normal stable inside the basement of the Chrysler House. Visiting their workspace is always inspiring and fun. I mean, where else can you see a kitchen with walls and a ceiling that simulates dripping chocolate, a life-sized horse lamp, an astronaut spacesuit, or a bank vault repurposed into a dramatically elegant conference space? Want to check out dPOP!? Don’t get COLT feet. Come hang out during one of their “Workeasy” events. Every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month, dPOP! welcomes anyone who wants to come work with its staff and see what it’s like to spend a day in creative paradise.

Brand Camp IV Detroit, Wayne State University: Tuesday, November 8, 2011
“A Terrific First Experience”
Whether you are a part of a large business or just creating a new business from the ground up; Brand Camp University was a terrific experience to learn how to make one’s self and their business a brand.
I am a recent college graduate that was just hired as the assistant accounting clerk at Professional Movers.com in Walled Lake MI; and I am very excited about learning how to better improve our business with branding.
I was very fortunate enough to get to hear many of Brand Camp’s speaker’s stories and advice for improving and even starting a whole new business. At Professional Movers.com we strive on creating a stronger business to better improve the quality of our service for each customer and client.
Hajj Fleming’s; the creator of Brand Camp’s presentation was very insightful. Hajj was very passionate about connecting emotionally with your business. He explained that branding your businesses is about making sure your customers and clients have an emotional experience with your company. Branding is more than just creating an image for your business; but creating something that people can passionately relate to and share with others.
One of my favorite presentations was from Josh Linkner. I’m very excited that he is managing the Detroit Venture Partner’s Project; to help rebuild the Detroit area with new strong businesses. I really respect what Josh’s is creating by bringing businesses back into Detroit. At Professional Movers.com we just launched our Detroit Moving Incentive; where our company’s goal is to help pioneer Detroit’s latest renaissance by providing relocation discounts to the businesses and people who are leading the way by investing and repopulating our downtown. Josh Linkner is truly an inspiration to me because he challenges conventionalism by creating a unique brand that gets people’s attention. He even recommended a new form of brainstorming, where you and your business partners “role-storm.” Josh and his partners pretended they were the characters from Madmen; it helped with his confidence and creativity. It is important to always keep challenging yourself.
I really enjoyed seeing Melinda Emerson (“the small biz lady”) speak; she was extremely funny and had a lot of advice for starting a small business from nothing and creating it into something strong. You have to start a business that people are willing to pay for; you have to make your business stand out. The best advice Melinda gave was to really think about your customer in detail; who they are and what they truly want. The best guidance that Melinda offered was to find a professional mentor. She recommended a terrific website Score.org; where you can get free confidential mentoring from someone who has experience working in your particular field. The ending of Melinda’s presentation was really entertaining because she discussed the importance of getting yourself pumped up by having your own theme song. Melinda ended with a dance to her own theme song.
Overall, I had such a good time at Brand Camp University. It was a wonderful learning experience for a recent college graduate. Everyone, including the presenters was extremely friendly to talk to. I learned a lot of valuable advice to pass along to better improve Professional Movers.com.

We are proud to announce that we partnered with Marathon For Meals to provide a moving trailer that accepted non-perishable food donations for the 26th Annual Food Drive. Once the drive was complete, one of our drivers loaded trailer and delivered the donations to the Gleaners Community Food Bank.
For 26 years, Detroit Radio Icon Bob Bauer, has been doing his Marathon For Meals to benefit local food banks, emergency food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. This year, for 12 Days Bob was camped outside the Patrick Financial Building in downtown Brighton collecting non-perishable food donations. In this picture, Andrew Androff stopped by to visit with Bob and provide a donation.
