uvl_10.21.10_013_thuvl_8_178_thmb

 

According to the USPS; 55,000 change of address forms are processed every day in the United States. Every summer tens of thousands of families physically move their residence.

Take some time before you hire a professional mover. Find a moving partner that will LISTEN and BUILD a successful moving plan that fits the budget and the schedule.

MOVING TIP OF THE MONTH: 

If you’re moving locally, under 25 miles use the following as a guideline. 79% of all claims are caused by RUSHED MOVERS. Hire fewer movers for longer periods of time. You won’t regret it!

  • 500-1500 sq ft home: Allow 2 full days
  • 1500-3000 sq ft home: Allow 3 full days
  • over 3000 sq ft: Allow 1 full week

Chipman Relocations and Logistics is the largest family owned mover on the west coast.

Have you been scammed by a disreputable Moving Company?

MoveRescue® is the first industry-endorsed consumer assistance service aimed at stopping disreputable and unscrupulous interstate movers.

Approximately 1.6 million Americans hire interstate household goods movers each year. Unfortunately, a reported 3,000 cases of possible mover fraud occur annually. Many of these cases involve criminals who offer low estimates and then hold customers’ possessions hostage in undisclosed warehouses, demand thousands of dollars in additional payments and threaten auction. MoveRescue is devoted to ending this problem by seeing that moving companies abide by the federal consumer protection regulations.

Please call 800-832-1773 if you would like to speak with a MoveRescue representative. You will be asked to provide information about your move and to forward your shipping documents for review. A knowledgeable representative will answer your questions about the moving process and advise you of the appropriate next steps to take.MoveRescue

Incredible GENEROSITY for this EXTREME makeover!

Thank you for all the donations and for giving us your time last Monday.

It was a day we will never forget. We wish each and every one of you could have been there to experience the joy on the faces of the women and children who ALL MOVED IN THAT VERY DAY!

We asked for furniture and household items for FOUR mothers and children transitioning out of homelessness and you did not hesitate. Not only were we able to give St. Raymond’s House everything they needed for a fresh start but you showed them there is a greater community that cares.

A special thank you to Chipman Relocation and Logistics for providing over 50 employees for the day and for believing in our mission. We couldn’t have dreamed for a better partner.

AND thank you to LOPC in Lafayette for spreading the word and giving us the space to Gather!

PLUS, WE HAVE A WINNER for the Warriors Raffle! Thanks to everyone who participated! Please see winner below!

This is an amazing transformation, you won’t want to miss! Thank you for making this dream come true for FOUR families last week!

Thank you!

In our continuing efforts to keep the nation’s Moving and Storage Industry apprised of news of interest, Movers Search Group has reprinted, verbatim, the following press release published today:
Interstate Acquires American Red Ball World Wide Movers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Key Acquisition Advances Interstate’s Growth
 
SPRINGFIELD, VA, March 7, 2017 – InterstateGroup Holdings, Inc., parent company of Interstate Van Lines, Inc., one of the country’s largest independent moving companies, is pleased to announce the acquisition of American Red Ball World Wide Movers, one of the oldest household goods carriers in the United States. The joining of these two successful and enduring companies will enhance Interstate’s growth plans, as well as its capabilities to serve corporate, government and private customers.  
Established in 1919 and based in Indianapolis, Indiana, American Red Ball, like Interstate, focuses on delivering a personalized customer experience. Few companies in the United States have been in business as long as Interstate and American Red Ball; together the two venerable brands have an impressive 170+ years of experience moving people and businesses around the world.  “We’re excited about the synergies between the two organizations and the opportunity to leverage best practices, technology, and talent,” says John (J.D.) Morrissette, president, Interstate Van Lines. “This union positions American Red Ball for continued growth through the extensive support network provided by Interstate. It preserves our 98-year history with a company that reflects our culture and ethics,” adds Katrina Blackwell, president, American Red Ball.  
 
As the two companies come together, operations will continue in both Springfield, Virginia, and Indianapolis, Indiana, capitalizing on the strength of the teams in both locations while increasing Interstate’s footprint and revenue sources. Specifically, Interstate will acquire American Red Ball’s national operations and agency network. American Red Ball’s international forwarding and local moving and storage business will be operated independently.
