C&R Movers, LLC – Owner, Mr. Charles Underwood

Charles UnderwoodMr. Charles Underwood started C&R Movers, LLC in April 2014 as a result of wanting to work for himself after working years for one of the nation’s leading moving providers. In May of 2015, C&R Movers made his initial visit to the center as a non-registered sole proprietor moving company, knowing absolutely nothing about government contracting. Since that time, Mr. Underwood has worked diligently and has demonstrated remarkable successes in the government contracting arena in an exceptionally short period of time. The ASU SBDC PTAC advisor has provided C&R Movers with a total of 23 counseling sessions equating to 50+ hours of one-on-one and off-site technical assistance/counseling time. C&R Movers has obtained the following significant accomplishments: Certified 8(a) Business Development Program participant; ALDOT DBE & Birmingham Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Certifications; State of Alabama MBE and Emergency Response Contracting in Alabama (ERCA) Certifications; SAM and SBA Profile active registrations; Capability Statement and other marketing materials and government strategies.

C&R Movers, LLC has secured over 2M in government contract awards and invested over $39K in owner capital, all of which has contributed to the creation of 10 jobs.

C&R Movers, LLC will be honored as the ASU SBDC Procurement Small Business of Year on April 13, 2017 at the ASU College of Business Annual Awards Banquet.

Congratulations on a job well done!
