February 16, 2017

Alexandria, VA — Double Duty Movers & Portable Storage of Aberdeen, S.D., has been named the winner of the 2016 Enterprise Award, presented to an outstanding small independent mover by the American Moving & Storage Association. The company has shown a commitment to high standards by earning several certifications from AMSA, including ProMover certification for the company, certified packer/loader for their crew, and certified moving consultant for co-owner Emily Heintzman. Double Duty will be honored during the AMSA 2017 Education Conference & Expo in Palm Springs, Calif., on February 28.

The Enterprise Award reflects AMSA’s and the industry’s commitment to recognizing outstanding performance among small, independent movers, which can be demonstrated in a variety of ways, including community service, employee relations, innovative operations, and exceptional customer service practices. The award honors AMSA mover members with less than $3 million in annual gross revenues and fewer than 25 employees, as selected by a panel of industry experts.

Double Duty Movers & Portable Storage has grown from a one-man operation in the portable storage industry to a multi-line business with multiple family members and employees. Under owners Steve and Emily Heintzman, the business has expanded its services to include containerized moving options. The company offers a wide range of services from self service to full service moves.

Double Duty was nominated by the Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce for their annual ABBY Award for Customer Service, and has been named as a Dakota Rising Fellow. The company has supported the local community through free moving services for families in need, fire and flood victims needing storage, and local churches and charities. Double Duty also has provided free transportation for furniture to Habitat for Humanity and free containers for the Brown County Fair, along with support for other local charities.

“We are so honored to receive this award from AMSA. From the start, we created flexible moving and storage solutions that can minimize the stress for our customers,” said Steve and Emily Heintzman, owners of Double Duty Movers & Portable Storage. “AMSA has been a big part of our success and we look forward to a continued partnership as our company grows.”

“Congratulations to Double Duty Moving & Storage for their outstanding success as an enterprising small mover that makes a big impact on their community,” said Scott Michael, AMSA president and CEO. “Double Duty has set high standards for the rest of the industry, and I’m proud to see them honored for their success and dedication.”
