Core Values for the Community and Environment

  • We provide donation services that allow for usable clothing to be kept out of landfills and given to someone in need (with client authorization).
  • We strive to provide work opportunities for the underserved and build a work culture that acknowledges our employees are the legs we stand on.
  • We have a culture that cares. The positive and respectful work environment focuses on employee best practices and customer satisfaction.
  • For all materials we can’t reuse, we recycle, including corrugate, plastic hangers, and packaging materials.

NARD’s story is that of the extraordinary.

We are a partnership that was built naturally, which lead to key components such as inclusion, diversity, and creativity. NARD operators across the country include highly talented multi-faceted business moguls, incredible successful women, multi-cultural business owners, and highly educated scientists and engineers. Diverse ideas bring insights, experiences, and the worldviews of the communities we serve. Our diversity facilitates better consumer understanding, and allows us to provide innovative and creative solutions to the clients we serve throughout the claim management process.
This partnership evolved into a franchise in 2018 in order to more effectively bring our collective expertise to our carrier clients on an enterprise level. 

NARD brings custom tailored solutions to our carrier clients, through the process of proactively assessing customer’s needs, spoken and unspoken.
