Meet Marilee and Patrick Dose of Dose Moving and Storage in North Phoenix

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marilee and Patrick Dose.

Marilee and Patrick, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
We started this company out of our garage six years ago with a Uhaul trailer and Ford truck. We made a flyer and delivered furniture for the consignment stores. One day a delivery customer asked if we would move them. From that day on we were in the moving business. We decided to change all of the things we didn’t like about moving and the bad reputation the moving industry has. We patented our moving techniques so there is virtually no damage to customer’s belongings. We also changed the way the moving industry was charging clients. We are the only mover with “no extra” or “hidden” fees. We have a transparent honest hourly rate that makes it easy to calculate the bill. We are truly changing the way people move and their perception of movers. We only hire the best and we pay our guys more than any other moving company. We value our employees and their hard work. All of our guys are background checked and drug tested. Every employee is trained to be a certified ProMover with AMSA. Our company culture is the key to our employee’s happiness.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Starting a company is never easy. There are always bumps along the way. Our biggest challenge was going from trailers to trucks. No one would lease us a truck because we hadn’t been in business long enough. Finally, Enterprise Truck leasing gave us the chance and leased us a truck! We are so loyal and thankful to them for that opportunity.

Please tell us about your company.
We are a moving and storage company. We specialize in packing, moving, storing and unpacking. We are known for the only company with “no extra fees”. We are most proud of our moving techniques that safeguard our client’s belongings from damage. I believe what sets us apart is our work ethic and transparent pricing.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
The success and happiness of our employees is the most important factor in our success. We want to change our employee’s life. This isn’t just a job – this is a way of life! We want our guys to get an education. We want to pay our guys an awesome salary so their wives can stay home and raise the next generation. We want our guys to feel valued for their hard work and dedication. We provide all the benefits and 401K and Profit Sharing. We want to share with our employees the Dose Moving Difference.
