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.
I was born and raised in Phoenix. I had moved to Oklahoma where I met my husband. We came out for a spring training game and he loved it here so much that we moved here two weeks later! My background is interior design so I started doing staging. Together we would deliver furniture and set everything up. One day a client asked if we would move her entire home. We said sure! She was so happy with the way we handled her furniture and the fact there was no damage to the floors or walls that she referred a friend. We moved that friend who then referred another friend and so on. Two months later we were in the moving business. I tribute our success to my design background. We know how to handle furniture and we treat it like it’s our own. We take great pride in going the extra mile so there is no damage to floors or walls. Our signature is “no dollies in the house EVER”. While most moving companies dolly everything – we hand carry everything.

Has it been a smooth road?
Nothing in the moving business is smooth. We have had many bumps along the way. When we first started, we were delivering furniture in rented Uhaul trailers. We finally saved up enough money to buy an enclosed trailer. We quickly grew to 3 enclosed trailers but realized we needed the 26′ box trucks if we were going to compete with local moving companies. I called every leasing company and no one would lease us a truck because we had not been in the moving business for 2 years. One day I called Enterprise and they gave us the break we needed. Finally, we had our first truck!

Our next challenge is storage/warehousing. Many of our clients ask us if we have storage. Our current location is too small for any kind of storage. We have struggled to find the right location but are happy to say that 3/1/18 our new warehouse will be complete and ready to move into.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Dose Moving and Storage – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We are a moving company. We move homes and offices. We service all of Arizona and the connecting states. We also offer packing and unpacking services. We are known for “handling clients things like they are our own”. We are also known as the only company with no extra fees. We do not have a trip charge, gas fee, mileage fee, truck fee, stair fee, weekend fee or assembly fee. Shrink wrap is included with every move. We also prorate to the minute and don’t round up in increments.

We are most proud of our employees and how they uphold the company brand and image. It shows in our reviews on Yelp and Google. Our guys are polite and have such big hearts – they truly care about the customer’s experience. We all know that the moving industry does not have the best reputation. We want to change the way people perceive moving “one move at a time”. We truly believe that our company core values and employees is what sets us apart from any other moving company.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
There are so many things we love about Phoenix. We love the people, the culture, and the community. We love the freeways and the traffic flow. We love the diversity of the housing in each city. We love moving people 9 months out of the year 🙂

If there is one thing I dislike – it would be when its 115 outside and our guys are working! Although our company provides water, Gatorade and cooling towels on the trucks daily – I always feel for our guys after a long hot day. They work so hard and always come back to the office with a smile.
