T.E.A.M
How Our Core Values Show Up In Your Move

At Planes, we believe in improving the moving experience, and that starts with our people. Simply packing or storing boxes is a low bar--our professionals are trained to be trusted, empowered team leaders within our organization and on your moving journey.

Trust--When it comes to moving, we’ve run a million plays, but each one is unique. We’re committed to earning your trust by being top performers, timely communicators, and effective problem solvers.

Empowerment--We work hard to put you in the position to be the master of your move.

Accountability--We check in with you at every stage in your timeline, collect feedback, and reassess our game plan as needed.

Mesh--Your team isn’t just your moving crew--it’s all of us at Planes, here to answer any questions and support you through each step of your journey.

“We believe in taking personal responsibility for every move.”
