1. Add a description to your Getamover profile
As obvious as this request seems, most moving company’s owners chose not to add a description of their businesses. This action can have a nefarious effect on how the company is seen by customers as it can show a lack of communication.
Making a descriptive text of your removal company shouldn’t be too long nor complexe. They key is into adding keywords that will ring a bell to your customers needs, for example: “special removals”, “house removal” or “relocation”. Here is a bullet point list of details you should add:
- Types of services (special moves, house or business removals, etc.)
- Operating areas
- Years in business
- Destinations (domestic or international)
2. Upload valuable images

3. Fill in the Q&A section
If you scroll all the way down your profile, you’ll find a Q&A field. This category was specially designed for you to include valuable information your clients are searching about your moving company. Answers don’t need to be long, however we want to emphasize the importance of filling in all the fields and making sure to be as precise as possible.

5. Check your reviews and take time to answer
Bad or good reviews need to be answered. Taking the time to go over your reviews will reward you in long term and this is why:

This will also help new customers understand that other factors enter into the equation during a move.
