rigorous recruitment process of movers

The key to running a successful and esteemed moving company begins with hiring experienced and skilled movers. When we hire our movers, we look for certain qualities like diligence, promptness, and a can-do attitude. We also aim to hire movers that are personable so that they can provide both physical and emotional support during this stressful moment in your life.

In order to ensure that we hire the best movers, we vet our movers thoroughly and enroll them in a moving school to fine tune their skills. We are immensely proud of our team of skilled and experienced movers, and here’s why:


In order to get hired at Oz Moving, all of our movers must take part in a series of comprehensive interviews so that we can get a sense if they have the expertise necessary to be a good fit for our team. We look for movers who are honest, polite, professional and well-trained. We also seek movers who believe that Oz will be a good match for them.

To make sure that our movers are up to par, all of our movers are enrolled in a rigorous moving school where we train them in extensive safety protocols and heaving lifting practices. Before our movers go out on the job, they must learn how to navigate walk-up buildings, busy city streets, narrow sidewalks, and handle fragile items. Our movers also learn how to pack specialty items and assemble and disassemble all kinds of furniture.

In our training program, we place great importance on health and workplace safety standards to make sure our movers never risk their safety (or your safety) while on the job. Even if a mover has spent many years at other moving companies, we enroll them at our moving school to ensure that they adhere to the high standards we practice at Oz. 


Since we started moving back in 1993, we’ve been able to build something special. Many of our movers have stayed by our side since the very beginning (over 20 years!), which we believe is a testament to the positive environment we cultivate at our company. We take great pride in the strong sense of community we have built together at Oz through the years. 


It’s no secret that moving can be a strenuous and physically demanding job full of long hours and manual labor. That’s why we take extra steps to prepare our movers for all sorts of challenges that may arise during commercial and long-distance moving jobs. Alongside our rigorous moving school, we provide additional training to ensure that our movers are safe and well-prepared for specialty moving jobs. 


At Oz, we are proud of our commitment to equity and inclusion. We strive to create a diverse, safe and welcoming environment. We want to help movers build lifelong careers in this industry, if they choose to, or prepare them for whatever they may go on to do afterward.
