As leaders of our exceptional staff, Able Moving & Storage’s Operations Managers are crucial directors of resources and advocates for customer satisfaction. Len Jones is the Operations Manager for our residential department. He oversees all of Able’s residential moving service activities, including local moving, long-distance moving, move management for seniors, residential storage moves, government moving, and model home installations.
We chatted with Len about his experience with Able Moving and what has helped him achieve such success:
- How long have you been with Able?
I have been with Able for almost 27 years! Prior to working at Able, my experience was mostly with the US Military.
- What positions did you hold before Operations Manager?
I started at Able working in the warehouse. From there, I moved to a residential driver and supervisor. Then I worked in dispatch before being promoted to operations manager.
- What do you like about working in the moving industry?
Moving is stressful, and this industry can be very stressful! But I enjoy that we are helping customers during this time in their life while providing top-quality moving & storage services.
- What do you like about working at Able?
My favorite thing about working at Able is the people that work here. Our company culture has this sense of teamwork that extends from leadership to crews. This positive attitude makes us successful because our people feel a sense of excitement and pride when working together, which shows in their quality of work for our customers.
- What do you like to do outside of work?
I have a 7-year-old son and an 11-year-old daughter, so they keep me very busy when I am not at work. I like playing video games and watching movies with them. I enjoy doing home improvement projects around my house, and I have a 1965 Mustang that I have been restoring in my free time over the past 17 years.
- Do you have any career advice for others?
The professional advice I give to everyone is when you find something you are good at and enjoy doing, stick with it. Instead of jumping around specialties, find something you can grow and become an expert in. If you do that to the best of your ability, then the sky’s the limit!
