By now you’ve probably read that Stevens operates through our agent network, which spans the United States and covers 97 percent of the market. These agents have their own independently owned and operated moving companies—so how do they fit in with Stevens?
How It Works
While it’s true that our agents own and operate their own moving companies that perform a variety of services, including local and intrastate moves, they partner with Stevens for interstate moves. This allows them to meet the legal requirements necessary for performing interstate moves, and it also allows Stevens to extend our reach into those markets that need us.
Hundreds of independently owned and operated moving companies across the country work directly with Stevens, and these companies are our agents. They’re what makes us a full-service moving company, and we couldn’t do it without these talented people joining our business.
How does it happen? First, a moving company is vetted extensively by Stevens to ensure the company meets or exceeds our stringent standards. The moving company then signs an agency agreement with us, generally lasting five to ten years. After this agreement is signed, the company is allowed by federal law to perform interstate moves.
These agents then provide moving services to our customers, from packing and storage to transportation. An agent can also help you get an estimate. Contact your local agent today.
Some of the drivers our customers work with are directly employed by Stevens. Although they’re not affiliated with your local agent, these drivers help us create a more extensive network. They work hand in hand with our agents to make sure our customers experience a stress-free move.
Our agents also employ drivers, and so the driver handling your move may be employed by either your local agent or Stevens. Regardless of who employs your driver, anyone driving during a Stevens move is subject to the same quality controls and will demonstrate the same commitment to success.
