. In less than three years, he grew his company to ten guys in three trucks.

Daniel talks about how he set his business apart using tactics like simple, transparent pricing and deposit-free online booking. He promotes his key differentiator on his trucks, which all say “Oklahoma’s only flat-rate moving company.”
