Chattanooga-based moving company Bellhop has been named by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best moving companies of 2022.
In its annual ranking of industry leaders, Bellhop ranks No. 2 among all US moving companies, behind only JK Moving.
Bill Chase, Bellhop’s chief marketing officer, said ranking first in US News’ annual report for Bellhop should give the web-based moving service a big boost.
“We are thrilled to be listed among some of the most established and well-known moving companies in the industry, and honored to rank as No. 2 “Best Long Distance Moving Company” and No. 2 Overall Best Moving Company 2 as “Best Interstate Long Distance Moving Company”.
U.S. News & World Report reviewed costs, licensing, timeliness, customer satisfaction, and flexibility of services to create their rankings.
Bellhop, which was started as Bellhops in 2011 by Chattanooga entrepreneurs Cam Doody and Stephen Vlahos, provides moving services for small-scale moves. On its website the company says it is “not a traditional moving company,” allowing you to book a move without a personal consultation and manage your move from an online dashboard in your Bellhop account. The company also provides free quotes and booking at no cost. Bellhop performs local, long distance, interstate and commercial moves and has completed over 300,000 moves over the past decade.
Bellhop operates in 24 states and the District of Columbia and has approximately 200 team members working at Bellhop headquarters, including remote employees, and more than 1,400 moving professionals, drivers and carriers in the region.
Chase said Bellhop has experienced more demand for its moving services this summer than ever before.
“We are actively hiring professionals, drivers and carriers operating in nearly every market to ensure an adequate workforce to meet unprecedented demand,” he said. “To this end, we have increased hourly wages in several markets; we have also introduced a demand-based pay system that rewards Bellhop team members for working during peak demand windows.”
