Freight Blessings

The heartbeat of University Loft is to be ready when we can to assist others as a need arises. From partnering with Friends of the World to helping homes for less fortunate people, University Loft has been involved. When a former employee reached out to Freight Manager, Candice Johns, for advice and help in a big move, she stepped up to lend a helping hand. You could call it a freight blessing from the freight and shipping department at University Loft, or in Candice Johns words, “Our mission and my mission to help others.”

Once an employee of University Loft, Jared Crabtree had a heart to do missionary work in Germany. He fell in love with the people and the country and is moving there to live as a missionary. He needed a little guidance though and knew he could approach Candice to help him coordinate this big transition. She gladly helped organize the move of his personal effects. “Once he had everything locked in place, he quickly realized that he needed a pickup facility other than his current residence. I agreed to help him prepare for his journey.” Candice shared. “Jared brought his belongings to University Loft where he helped Todd place his goods on a pallet to be shrink wrapped and banded for pick up.”

Candice’s enthusiasm to help her fellow Uloft co-worker shined through. “I was excited to be able to help an old colleague and forever friend in his journey to help teach and serve through God’s Word.”

University Loft is about more than furnishing your facility and selling furniture, it’s about people. As owner and founder, James N. Jannetides said, “It’s about the people who entrust University Loft Company to outfit the personal spaces where they live, work, and play. To remain worthy of that trust, we are always learning, always innovating, and always improving our environment, our products, and our service. It’s what you expect of us, and it’s what we demand of us.”

 We would love to have your business. Take a look around our catalogs to see the variety of furniture products we offer. If you have any questions, contact us here or give us a call at 800-423-LOFT (5638).  If you need something yesterday, ask a University Loft representative about our Quick Ship Program. We just might have something stocked and ready to get out to you.
