“Do you really have time to move yourself?” That’s the burning question American Moving & Hauling of Winston-Salem asks on their website. A locally known North Carolina moving and hauling company offering a comprehensive range of services to assist individuals, families, and businesses with their relocation needs, this business is known for its commitment to providing reliable, efficient moving solutions.
Standing by their motto of “People Focused, Woman Owned, Family Managed,” American Moving & Hauling grew in a more personal way this past year by rebranding and increasing their marketing and social media efforts.
Owner Amy Cushman Jah says it’s been a very productive year, despite the crazy housing market, and as part of her rebranding strategy, you’re likely seeing their bright pink moving trucks in more and more locations!
“We’ve been much more active in the community,” Amy says. “I’m definitely even more intent on focusing and working with women-owned businesses than ever before.”
That inspiration grew, Amy shares, after being involved with Forsyth Woman magazine’s Women on the Move Leadership Conference last March.
“That event was actually pivotal for me,” she says. “I began more networking immediately with women I met there! It surprised me how many other women actually knew who I was, and knew about our business. I connected to so many people there — new things really fell into place after that!”
Amy has also started what she calls “meet-ups,” simply for women to network and enjoy building community together — all very casual, but the perfect atmosphere to share ideas and inspiration.
“On November 12, I’m joining a group of local ladies at the Spa at Rock Barn in Conover, for a day of networking and much-needed pampering. If you’re interested, simply call and schedule your own spa services, and meet us there! Then, on November 30 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., we’re hosting a sip-and-shop at Primm’s in Winston-Salem, for some shopping and networking during their two-year anniversary celebration, with hopefully more boutique shopping along Burke Street, and dinner afterwards at Eastern Standard for anyone who wants to continue the conversations and camaraderie,” says Amy.
A seasoned entrepreneur who knows the value of community, and is blessed with a passion for providing top-notch moving services, she’s been at the helm of the company since its inception in 2005. With years of experience in the industry, she understands the nuances and challenges of the moving and hauling business, enabling her to lead the company with savvy and poise.
