mission

Every member of our team, from sales reps to foremen, understands their role in the success of our core mission of process driven, dependable, white glove services.

3MD brings our customers the peace of mind their property is being handled appropriately. Large or small, we ensure all our clients feel confident we’re putting the same care into planning their project whether it’s installing, relocating, storing, distributing or decommissioning assets.

WHY 3MD?

3MD strives to be the mover who perfects all the things you wish the others did differently. Thorough planning and attention to detail allow us to deliver the experience our clients want, sparing them another stressful helping of the industry’s business as usual.

real talk

Our business is based on being up front and
honest about the reality of a project. We have
no interest in perpetuating the nickel and dime
change order mentality the moving industry,
sadly, has a reputation for.

Open communication allows our customers to
make informed decisions based on an accurate
understanding of the true costs associated
with the scope of their move.

real people

Many clients are understandably nervous about granting authority to our foremen and project managers on relocation planning and logistics.

One of the key reasons our service is unsurpassed is that we have real people focused on developing real relationships with our clients. We want to help them understand the reason we ask certain questions and do things a certain way is to execute their move safely, efficiently and cost effectively.

Building this personal rapport establishes a comfort level that allows clients to feel confident in our expertise when it’s time for our team to take the wheel.

real difference

Moving is considered one of the top life changing
stressors, right up there with death and divorce.
The purpose of our unique methodology and client
focused, single source solution approach is to make
a real difference both in the industry, and for every
individual client.We bring the peace of mind that
comes from knowing you hired the best, and that
whatever happens we’re going to handle it.
