By: Bubbajunk.com

FORT WAYNE, Ind., March 9, 2005 Satisfied customers of North American and Global Van Lines have chosen the top-performing agents nationwide as recipients of the Customer Choice Quality Awards for moves completed in 2004.

The Customer Choice Quality Awards are based on independent surveys of North American and Global Van Lines customers. Survey answers are translated into a Quality Index, which is based solely on customers perceptions of the various services they have received during their relocation. Survey questions cover items from the point of sale to the moving and delivery of household goods and relate to specific performance roles an agent must fill. Each of these roles is rated in four categories: Overall, Origin, Hauling and Booking.

Understanding and meeting customer expectations of quality service is the key to overall customer satisfaction, said Lesli Birney, director of Quality for North American and Global Van Lines. These excellent survey ratings prove that our agents are going above and beyond to provide the best service for customers.

Origin excellence focuses on the performance of an agents salespeople and the crews packing skills. Hauling performance is rated on the professionalism and appearance of loaders and drivers as well as delivery timeliness and care. Booking focuses on the move coordinator and the move process. The Overall category considers an agents ability to deliver on all these performance roles.
