As the nation’s first tech-enabled moving company, Bellhops Moving arranges both local and long-distance moving services in cities across the country. Founded in the college town of Auburn, Alabama in 2011, the founders set out to make moving into and out of dorms during orientation weekend painless. They set a goal of 40 moves, but ended up completing 325. Now, Bellhops is available in 31 cities and will open in 3 cities a month throughout 2019.
Moving is an incredibly intimate experience—you are inviting people into your home for several hours while they touch and handle your things. This makes Bellhops commitment to CX a top priority. Peter Hsu, COO at Bellhops, explains, “We pride ourselves on working with crews that customers can reply on to be friendly and hardworking. However, a positive experience comes not just from technical proficiency, but from demonstrating to customers that you understand what they need, by listening to them and sincerely caring about their belongings.”
When the Kustomer team originally reached out to Peter, he was intrigued by the notion of having all customer information in one place. His agents were constantly switching between screens in order to gather necessary information for their understandably emotional customers. “It’s not enough to ‘solve’ an individual ticket, especially if a customer is writing or calling about an ongoing issue. It’s incredibly important that the agents have the full context,” says Peter. Kustomer’s customer timeline made all the difference.
Although Bellhops has only been on the Kustomer platform for a few months, they have already started seeing the benefits.
