Quality Moving Services and New Life Outreach
International Church team up to provide assistance to Super Storm Sandy victims
Chesterfield - In the wake of Super Storm Sandy, several local businesses and residents heeded the call to help New York and New Jersey residents as they try to deal with catastrophic property damage, continued power outages and lack of accessibility to general necessities; Quality Moving Services and New Life Outreach International Church, were two such organizations.
Quality Moving Services president, and member of the New Life congregation, Vincent Tucker, handled the transportation portion of the mission last Thursday with two large QMS trucks filled with cases of water donated by church and community members.
"I was looking for ways that I or my business could reach out, so when I was approached by New Life, I jumped at the chance to help," Tucker said.
Tucker placed Not For Hire signs on the trucks from his fleet that were being used for the drop-off so that they would not have any issues entering into the city. Being familiar with travelling the busy corridor, Tucker and crew were prepared for the usual roadblocks.
"We left at midnight and drove through the night to avoid any traffic or congestion issues," he said.
Once they arrived in Bronx, N.Y., they were welcomed by other New Life Outreach International members from the area. The excitement was overwhelming for the four man crew.
"Just seeing so many people reaching out to help was a great experience," Tucker said.
Quality Moving Services was established in 1989 to serve the local communities with professional relocation services that are dependable, honest, and responsive to client's needs. Having relocated thousands of clients out of apartment homes, houses, and offices they have received the highest customer service and service ratings from their clients. Tucker credits the company's roots in the community as one reason for their success, "being locally owned and independently operated, we have the advantage of dealing directly with our customers, so when tragedies like these occur, we feel moved to help other communities the way we would our own."
