Name: Frederick Frei

Location: Simpsonville, SC 

Type of Business:
Move residential and commercial customers

What does your business do?
I move people personal items from one place to another.

When and why did you start the biz?
After watching my Mother and family members/friends get horrible service and robbed when they hired major moving company. I decided to help those who couldn't afford to pay thousands of dollars and get bad service to-boot.

Where's your office?
Currently working from my house. However, looking to grow into a buliding with a real office.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
Getting people in my community to know that i exist. I have tried different types of marketing. It has helped a little bit. I do get a lot of personal referrals from previous customers. Also keeping good employees when work gets slow.

What's the most fun part?
Releasing the stress off of a customer. I do understand that moving your personal belongings comes with alot of stress. First, you really don't realize how much you really have until its time to move it. Second, your handing over your personal items to a stranger, that is stressful enough.

Anything you would have done differently?
Yes, alot. Marketing is definitely the key. I have done a lot of stupid marketing things wish i hadn't. And having goid quality employees is also a much. Not just hiring the first person who shows up.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
Finding a warehouse to offer storage to my customers. A couple of newer trucks. Obviously, hire more employees.

What advice do you have for others?
If you have an idea go for it. If you fail. Get up and do it again. Learn from those mistakes.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
Getting answers to questions. Also, giving back to others that are looking for the same. Its a win-win for everyone. I do believe in paying it forward, because you never know when you are on the receiving end.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
B.A. Business Administration

Prior jobs or business?
Restaurant Management, Fed-Ex contractor.

Favorite Food?
Everything.... expect Liver

What are your pets' names?

Do any of these pets help with your biz?

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
After being a Fed-Ex contractor. I decided i needed something more challenging then dropping off boxes.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
No, not really at this time.
