Nissim Fadida’s Perspectives on the Impact of Covid-19 on the Moving Industry
The president of Moishe’s Moving talks about the impact of the pandemic on the moving industry.
New York City – Moishe’s Moving Systems, a New York-based moving systems company and its chairman, Nissim Fadida, recently released some interesting information on the state of the moving industry and the direct impact COVID-19 has had.
He comments that “[The COVID-19] pandemic has impacted the entire moving industry. Moving companies are under tremendous pressure to deliver and cut costs. There is a lot of stress on the whole industry and the movers in particular. “
This is due to many factors. However, one of the main reasons is that movers are now facing soaring costs within the industry.
Not only are gas prices increasing dramatically, but Nissim pointed out that it is becoming increasingly difficult for consumers to find reliable movers at an affordable rate.
This is directly impacted by rising gas prices and the challenges of recruiting and retaining truck drivers who are willing and able to work given the extreme supply chain disruption and increased traffic in the area. country.
Nissim says: “We had a line outside our office with people looking for job opportunities, and unfortunately we haven’t seen this since the start of the pandemic.”
In the New York and Jersey City areas, Nissim noted that there has been a slight increase in relocation needs as more people look to take advantage of the market and any discounts that may be available. However, Nissim also noted that there had been a substantial increase in remote jobs leaving New York:
Nissim notes that there has been a “50% increase in long distance jobs leaving New York.” About 25% to the FL area, 20% to CA and the West Coast, and 5% to South Central (Texas). ”
So what’s the general conclusion? While there is still a great need for movers and storage options, there simply aren’t enough reputable moving companies in the industry to meet the demand. We are seeing the impact on the prices of warehousing and moving companies struggling to compete with the discount rates offered by large warehousing, warehouse and big box retailers.
Nissim concluded that “The market has changed dramatically since the start of the pandemic. The market itself has changed. The market is doing well; however, there are certain challenges that can put the brakes on the entire moving industry. These challenges will continue due to the pandemic, and it is up to the industry to overcome these challenges to continue to provide high quality moving services to consumers. “
