Trippel Survey & Research conducted this survey—which launched September 12 and concluded October 1—with the goal of obtaining evaluations from corporate relocation managers regarding levels of satisfaction with firms in the relocation industry. More than 300 survey evaluations—representing 298 different relocation management companies—were received. The six largest relocation management companies in the survey accounted for nearly 75 percent of all evaluations returned.
Categories in which SIRVA Relocation achieved the top score included: Responsiveness and flexibility to your needs; Service recovery; Year-end tax reporting; Management reporting; Identifying trends and responding to them; Suggesting policy recommendations; Suggesting ways to reduce your costs; and Taking actions that control or lower direct real estate costs.

In fact, despite the extremely difficult real estate and credit markets, SIRVA Relocation is continuing to earn even higher marks on the customer service front from clients and transferees. Earlier this year, the company set its 2008 performance target for transferee satisfaction at an average score of 4.25 out of 5.00, with 5.00 being the highest rating. Today, SIRVA Relocation is surpassing this goal with the upward trend continuing.
