Advantages or differentiators
our advantage over our competitors is haulage services and courier service. our competitors on focus on relocation services. and our relocation service pricing is lower than that of our competitors
We have perfected our plans to charge competitive rates since we have minimal overhead compared to our competition in the industry.

We will ensure that we leverage on price to win over customers; our prices will be affordable and negotiable. The fact that our business door is open to both individuals and corporations means that we will have different price range for different category of clients.
As the business grows, we will continue to review our pricing system to accommodate a wide range of clientele.
