Aldo Disorbo Explains Benefits of Moving Brokerage

In Business, General on August 19, 2013 at 9:11 am

Aldo-Disorbo-Call-Center-Presentation-SolutionsLike finding the perfect house, Aldo Disorbo says using a moving broker can make moving an easier, cheaper, and more pleasurable experience.

Q: What is a moving broker?

Aldo Disorbo: A moving broker is someone that acts as an intermediary between the customer and a pool of service providers.

Q: What are the benefits to using an agency such as this?

Aldo Disorbo: For my customers at Nationwide Relocation Services, we find that we can save them up to 70 percent off of their moves.

Q: And how is that?

Aldo Disorbo: Every day, hundreds of trucks are performing moves all throughout the Continental U.S. It’s very common, these trucks will continue to their next destination empty. Our affiliates will notify us of the location of their unfilled trucks so we can connect them to nearby customers in need. Thanks to this streamlined process, we will be able to offer incredible discounts.

Q: So Nationwide Relocation Services is not an actual moving company?

Aldo Disorbo: No, we are not a moving company and we will not transport an individual shipper’s household goods, but we will coordinate and arrange for the transportation of their household goods by an FMCSA authorized motor carrier.

Q: But aren’t all moving companies the same?

Aldo Disorbo: Not at all. Many moving companies only offer local moves. Others focus on long-distance or international moves. Some companies don’t have the capability to transfer large items such as pianos or vehicles.

Q: So you have a way to input the customers’ requirements to match them to providers in their area?

Aldo Disorbo: Absolutely. And again, at a highly competitive price.

Q: It seems like there are a lot of moving brokers nowadays.

Aldo Disorbo: Yes, but it wasn’t always so. In fact, Nationwide Relocation Services was one of the first. The system that we have in place has served as a model for many other companies over the years.

Q: What happens when a customer is not happy with the quality of service?

Aldo Disorbo: We hold all of our contractors highly accountable for everything they do. It doesn’t happen often, but when we do have an issue we take every step to rectify it immediately.

Q: How do you determine who the best moving services are?

Aldo Disorbo: We actually have an internal rating system. The system flags customer service agents as to who the best available is. This makes it much easier to provide quality providers to our customers.

Q: So Nationwide Relocation Services really does all the legwork?

Aldo Disorbo: Yes. We have a remarkably efficient system in place. We have helped thousands of individuals find the right relocation service provider.

Q: With the accessibility of information online, are moving brokers becoming obsolete?

Aldo Disorbo: Just the opposite is true. The Internet can be a wonderful portal of information but that information can also be tainted. It can be very difficult to filter through search results. It is also very time-consuming to compare pricing, service options, and availability.

Q: What is the future of the moving brokerage business?

Aldo Disorbo: I believe that this is an industry that is here to stay. Using a moving broker affords the customer the opportunity to rely on someone else’s expertise in the area so that they can focus on what’s important to them — whether it be getting to a new home or relocating entire office.

Q: How do you think moving brokerage firms can be better in the future?

Aldo Disorbo: I firmly believe that it all comes down to the customer, although sadly, many businesses don’t see it that way. It is our customers that drive us and having fulfilled customers inspires us to continue to pave a path of success for Nationwide Relocation Services and other companies like it.

Q: Do you rely on customer feedback?

Aldo Disorbo: Yes, we do. Each company that we utilize is rated by the most reliable experts – the customer.

Q: What exactly do you grade them on?

Aldo Disorbo: Customer service, efficiency, courtesy, and professionalism. Low marks in any of these categories can trigger an investigation by our quality control.

Q: It sounds like Nationwide Relocation Services keeps a close eye on their service providers.

Aldo Disorbo: Our reputation depends on our customers’ happiness. We cannot and will not allow that to be tainted by poor service.

Q: Well, we appreciate you being with us today we look forward to talking to you again in the future.

Aldo Disorbo: Thank you very much for having me.

Aldo Disorbo is the founder of Nationwide Relocation Services. The company utilizes his 30+ years of experience in the industry to recognize quality service providers and to match these companies with clients across the United States. Nationwide Relocation Services can help with long-distance moves.

Aldo Todini

Aldo Todini, an Italian businessman and consultant, answers questions about the corporate finance and why the European financial crisis means businesses must look away from banks to fund operations.

Q. Why do companies seek external funding?

Aldo Todini: As a means to inject money into their product lines. This may be to research new revenue streams or to fill a deficit caused by recession across the continent.

Q. What funding options are available?

Aldo Todini: The most common is borrowing from banks but bonds are another solid way to finance.

Q. What benefits do selling corporate bonds have over taking out a loan?

Aldo Todini: The main benefit is they do not restrict the company from trying new things to create revenue.

Q. How are bank loans restrictive?

Aldo Todini:  Banks have a set risk level they are willing to take. They may not allow for the funding of new product lines, which is a major risk but also has the most potential reward for a company or its investors.

Q. What exactly is a bond?

Aldo Todini: A bond is essentially a piece of debt that a company owes. The debt is repaid by investors, which frees the company up to use liquid funds for other purposes.

Q. How much do bonds cost?

Aldo Todini: Bonds are typically sold in units of $1,000 – this can vary, however, from company to company. Bonds are held for a set time period then repaid with interest.

Q. Do bonds carry risk?

Aldo Todini: Each bond opportunity will afford certain benefits and risks. Bonds are graded according to the seller’s anticipated ability to repay the borrowed money.

Q. If a company selling bonds goes out of business, how to investors recoup their losses.

Aldo Todini: If the company liquidates its assets, which is common among failing businesses, the monies raised will be recovered for investors. Bond holders take priority over stockholders.

Q. Why should a business employ a third party consultant prior to selling bonds?

Aldo Todini: A consultant, specifically one familiar with business process reengineering, can first identity area of waste and help plan for more efficient manufacturing. This offers the potential bond investors more piece of mind, thus encouraging more sales and ultimately more funds.

Le nuove opportunità nel Corporate Finance | Botta e risposta con Aldo Todini
Aldo Todini, imprenditore italiano e consulente di management, risponde alle domande sulla corporate finance e sul perché la crisi finanziaria europea vuole dire che le aziende devono dimenticarsi delle banche per finanziare le proprie operazioni.

Perché le aziende cercano finanziamenti esterni?

Aldo Todini: Cercano finanziamento come mezzo per iniettare denaro nelle loro linee di prodotto. Questo può essere per ricercare nuovi opportunità di reddito o per colmare un deficit causato dalla recessione in tutto il continente.

Quali opzioni di finanziamento sono disponibili?

Aldo Todini: Il più comune è rivolgendosi alle banche ma le obbligazioni sono un modo in crescita per finanziare le proprie operazioni.

Quali sono i vantaggi delle obbligazioni rispetto al chiedere un prestito al mercato bancario?

Aldo Todini: Il vantaggio principale è che con le obbligazioni non c’è vincolo sull’utilizzo dei fondi e quindi le aziende possono utilizzarli per “scommettere” su nuove strade per generare reddito.

In che modo i prestiti bancari sono restrittivi?

Aldo Todini: Le banche operano sulla base di un determinato livello di rischio che sono disposte ad assumersi. In questa fase economica non possono consentire ad esempio a finanziamenti di nuove linee di prodotto – che sono un grande rischio ma anche il sistema principale per le aziende per trovare nuovo business.

Che cosa è esattamente un Bond?

Aldo Todini: Un bond/obbligazione è essenzialmente un “pezzo” di debito che una società ha nei confronti di terzi. Il debito viene venduto agli investitori dall’azienda che quindi può utilizzare i fondi derivanti da questa vendita per crescere, svilupparsi, creare nuove opportunità di business.

Quanto costano le obbligazioni?

Aldo Todini: Le obbligazioni sono in genere vendute in unità di $ 1.000 – questo valore può variare, tuttavia, da azienda ad azienda. Le obbligazioni sono detenute per un periodo di tempo impostato poi ripagato con gli interessi.

Questi titoli presentano dei rischi?

Aldo Todini: Ogni opportunità obbligazione offrirà alcuni vantaggi e alcuni rischi. Le obbligazioni sono classificate in base alla capacità prevista del venditore di restituire il denaro preso in prestito.

Se una società che ha emesso obbligazioni cessa l’attività, come faranno gli investitori a recuperare il loro investimento?

Aldo Todini: Se la società liquida il suo patrimonio, cosa comune tra le imprese in difficoltà, i fondi raccolti saranno distribuiti agli investitori. I detentori di obbligazioni hanno la priorità rispetto agli azionisti.

Perché un’azienda ha bisogno di un consulente esterno prima dell’emissione di obbligazioni?

Aldo Todini: Un consulente, nello specifico con familiarità con business process reengineering, può identificare e risolvere inefficienze nella produzione e quindi migliorare l’efficienza. Questa maggiore efficienza permette un maggiore appeal aziendale e quindi una maggiore appetibilità delle obbligazioni. In ultima analisi può incidere positivamente nella fase di collocazione del debito obbligazionario.
