Award-winning Moving Company Selects Arizona as First Franchise Location

PHOENIX, July 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NorthStar Moving ® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, today announced that it has opened its first franchise in Phoenix, Arizona. The unique moving franchise brings unparalleled moving services, customer service and customized care to the greater Phoenix area, one of the fastest growing major metropolitan areas in the nation.

Owned and operated by the same two co-founders since 1994, NorthStar Moving consistently earns an array of accolades. From multiple Best Places to Work awards, honors for their green practices and community commitment, to local and national Fastest Growing Company awards, Laura McHolm and Ram Katalan have built a company that has moved service back into the moving industry.

The new NorthStar Moving Phoenix office is operated by moving industry veteran Sam Mishali. An Arizona resident of almost 15 years, Sam and his team have more than 30 years of experience in the moving industry. The new location offers residents of the greater Phoenix and Scottsdale area, the 12th largest metropolitan area in the nation, the opportunity to experience a customized, stress-free move with NorthStar Moving's award-winning local, long distance and international and commercial moving services.

"We uncovered a need in the Arizona marketplace for a trusted, full-service moving company and we are very fortunate to have Sam, an experienced moving business owner, lead the operation," said NorthStar Moving Company CEO & Co-Founder Ram Katalan. "We are at the beginning of this franchise journey, it is critical that we select the ideal location and franchisee to kick it off.  When I first met Sam, I was immediately struck by his values and dedication to the greater Phoenix community. Sam shares our commitment to client service, the community and to his team members. His mission is aligned with ours: to serve and exceed his clients' expectations."

"I was immediately drawn to NorthStar Moving's unique business model," said NorthStar Moving Franchise Owner Sam Mishali. "It is rare to find a moving company that looks beyond simply moving boxes from point A to point B. NorthStar Moving caters to each client and team member's needs, which is proven in their reviews and Best Places to Work awards. I wanted to be part of that and bring the award-winning services to a new market, in my home state of Arizona."
