Culture and Values

How your employee relocation services provider respects their workers will have an impact on the overall service you can expect for your transferees and new hires. The level of care and kindness that is provided by a service partner is the cornerstone upon which its staff will perform. As a fourth-generation family owned and operated business, Corrigan’s workers are more than just employees, they’re a member of the Corrigan family. Corrigan’s workers have received the highest individual honors possible from United Van Lines – several of them more than once!

Customer Services

Good customer service is the basis upon which all good employee transfers start. Yet deciphering which movers can offer you good customer service can be a challenging thing. So what exactly does strong customer service look like from your employee relocation service company and how is good customer service provided?

  • Home Survey

    As your preferred relocation services provider, Corrigan will complete either a regular in-home survey or a virtual survey. With people depending more and more on computers, virtual surveys are becoming a convenient way of surveying. Corrigan’s experienced survey crew work with the homeowners to compile a precise  inventory. These have shown themselves to be accurate, because we regularly review estimated weight in comparison to actual weight after the relocation occurs. This allows us to continually  improve our abilities and surveying accuracy.

    Once the residence review is complete and the survey notes  is put together, a employee of the Corrigan team will prepare the quote for all requested services and review them with the transferee. We are dedicated, as your employee relocation services company, to deliver good value to each transferee while also delivering the world-class quality Corrigan is known for. Our staff will work to provide all transferees with ideas that will help them stay within their budget.
