How to Grow a Multimillion-Dollar Moving Company


The Building Blocks for Success

Helping North Texans move for over 30 years, Olde World Movers was established in 1988 with just one truck, and the desire to create an innovative, modern and progressive moving company.

Over 3 decades later they have become one of the most successful and trusted moving companies in the area.

So how do you go from one truck to a thriving, multimillion-dollar moving company?


About Olde World Movers

Olde World Movers has been a top provider of premium moving services to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex for over 30 years. Licensed, bonded and insured, they offer affordable rates and a professional staff that are committed to providing outstanding customer service. As well as the DFW metroplex, they also serve Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and other major cities in Texas.


Early Challenges

After working as an independent contractor for a major furniture delivery company in Chicago, Erich Horder made the decision to start his own moving company in the late 80s.

In the early days of running a new business, owners are often pulled in multiple directions and there are never enough hours in the day. Olde World Movers owners Erich and Teresa wanted to concentrate on growing their company, but they found that they were spending a lot of time answering the phone on nights and weekends.


One of their main challenges was finding a way to ensure that all the calls were answered, while their valuable time could be maximized to focus on growth in other areas of their business.

“I needed to get off the phone and focus on other areas of growth for my company.”


No Call Goes Unanswered

Olde World Movers partnered with Oncue so they could ensure that every single call would be answered. When their sales manager was on another call, Erich and Teresa knew that Oncue would be there, ready and waiting to answer all of their other calls.  Having round the clock coverage was important to Erich and Teresa, so that they could take some time off on the weekends while they ensuring they had coverage in the off hours.

This also gave them the flexibility to concentrate on growing other aspects of the business, safe in the knowledge that a trained team of sales professionals were turning their incoming calls into booked jobs.

“I don’t have to worry about sales. I can spend my time doing something else. When I’m home on Saturdays and Sundays,  I can look down and see that Oncue booked a move for me. I know you’re professionals and I don’t have to worry about the details,” said Erich.


Selecting the Right Tools for Growth

As most moving company owners know, advertising to attract new leads can be expensive. For every sales call that does not get answered, you’re not only losing a potential customer, but also the valuable money spent on attracting that call in the first place.

By relying on Oncue to help answer all of their calls, the team at Olde World Movers knew that the money spent on advertising through their marketing agency to generate new leads would not be wasted, and every call had the potential to turn into a paying customer.



Over the years they have successfully grown their company from one truck and a helper into a thriving business with a team of over 20 people and nine trucks that is there to serve their loyal, and growing, customer base.

“I was surprised about how user-friendly the operations calendar works. One of the best in the industry.”
