John from Brooks Moving And Hauling : How He 15x the Company After Purchasing It

Armed with 13 years of Air Force service as a pararescueman, John Hamilton seamlessly transitioned into real estate due to frequent military relocations, eventually paving the way to his venture into fix-and-flips and the thriving moving industry.

Acquiring Brooks Moving & Hauling three years ago, he inherited a business generating $200,000. By 2023, the company soared to a remarkable $3 million in annual revenue, now operating with six trucks.

Advocating for selling services over commodities, John strategically planned to expand the company and appoint a general manager. However, unforeseen challenges tested his resilience and altered the trajectory of these goals.

Leveraging his military background, John targeted new customers through USA home listings, utilizing his unique skill set to shape and fortify his moving business. His motto: “Failure is not an option.”

Focused on maintaining a robust company culture, John believes in the ripple effect of a strong ethos, preventing potential chaos. He upholds values of responsibility and accountability, instilling a sense of ownership among his team of movers.

Recognizing the impact of confusion on consumer decisions, John developed a formula based on existing quoting methods, ensuring clarity and efficiency in his approach to job estimation.
