WOW! It has already been a year since we started filing the paperwork to legally become a company. We then were able to have our official launch last. What a ride it has been so far!
Below is about our company, how we started, and the amazing journey it has been so far.
Seth Hartzell & Chris Cartwright have been friends for a few years at this point. Seth was working in the construction industry as a project manager but just recently took a step out of that industry to look for a better option. Chris had previously worked in the moving industry but was also working on finding a new venture to jump into. Chris sparked the idea of starting a new moving company when he saw how busy the industry was. He knew he wanted a partner in it and thought Seth would be a great choice as they have different backgrounds to mold together to form a great leadership team. A few weeks later, Bulldogs Moving Co. started the paperwork to become a fully licensed Indiana moving company.
The legal papers got filed, the insurance has been activated, and Bulldogs Moving Co has officially launched as a moving company in the area. We started off strong in marketing creating flyers, postcards, business cards, shirts, and creating a website. We also got started off on Facebook and Instagram heavily to get a good head start into the busy summer season. Performed several smaller end jobs at first then started to get some interest in full house moves.
Word spread fast and the schedule started to fill up quickly. Bulldogs turned from a crew of three into multiple crews with seven guys working consistently in the field. Seven employees turned into eleven and the jobs kept coming in and eventually became bigger and more complex moves. Seth & Chris decided it was time to purchase their first box truck.
Bulldogs Moving Co. started off having only their intrastate (state) license, but realized how they had to turn down too many out-of-state moves throughout the summer. So, they started on the paperwork to get their interstate (out-of-state) license to become a local and long-distance mover.
January 2023 and beyond
Bulldogs Moving Co. is very excited to start off their second year strong with a great team of guys, a great year behind them, and many more ahead of them. They hope to purchase more trucks this year and gain even more quality workers. If you are interested in using them feel free to reach out by phone or email and Seth or Chris will be happy to assist you. This is only the beginning.
