How to Recruit Moving Truck Drivers — The Ultimate Guide

Learning how to recruit moving truck drivers is no easy feat. Hiring quality employees is a challenge for any employer, but even more so for the moving and relocation industry.

As hard as it is to believe, the trucking industry — across the board — is experiencing a dearth of qualified drivers. The effect this has on the moving industry, however, is tenfold. If you own or work for a moving company, you’re probably already feeling the pinch. But why is this? And how can you recruit truck drivers in a more efficient way?

Opposed to your typical big rig or delivery truck drivers, drivers completing long hauls cross country for moving companies face considerably longer hours, more backbreaking work, and difficult customer service requests. Consequently, moving truck drivers are fleeing the industry for more favorable, less seasonal driving gigs for companies such as FedEx.

This has left moving companies scrambling to continuously recruit and hire new drivers. If you’re part of the industry, none of this is news to you, and we feel your pain. Being in a constant state of recruiting, hiring, training, and then re-hiring, isn’t fun. If you feel you’re destined for a continuous Groundhog Day of hiring, you’re not.
