April 24, 2008 -- Bekins Van Lines recently assisted a family in need of moving some of their most needed items to their temporary home in Miami from Minnesota to be closer to their baby recovering from a multi-visceral organ transplant surgery recently performed. Baby Sidney Markie received this transplant surgery in March and is getting stronger everyday, but has a long recover ahead. Bekins will also donate moving services to the family when the baby is able to go back home to Minnesota.
Bekins was put in contact with the family when one of their customers, Les Velte of Consumers Relocation Services contacted Bob Dalaskey asking us for assistance. Bob Dalaskey, Vice President of Sales for Bekins stated “Bekins is very happy to assist Sidney and her family in their time of special need. We all wish her the best, and will keep her in our thoughts and prayers.” In addition to the moving, Mark Eschbacher of AE Worldwide, Mahwah, NJ donated their crating service for their items so they were assured of damage-free items on the move. Mr. Dalaskey added, “We would also like to thank Kevin Mortland of Twin Cities Moving Systems in Eagan, MN and Joseph Sabga of Bekins of South Florida in Ft. Lauderdale, FL who helped us make sure the loading and unloading of the goods went smoothly on loading day and at delivery.”
Cheryl Murray, grandmother of Sidney Markie added, “We couldn’t be happier with the service provided. Everyone was so nice this morning, so professional and caring. May God bless you all! You are all part of a little miracle in process. Thanks again to Bekins for their help.”
Bekins Van Lines has a long standing tradition of assisting others in time of need. Whether it is raising money for nationwide organizations like Ronald McDonald House Charities, or local groups like the Hibiscus Children’s Center in Florida, assisting in the aftermath of national emergencies like 9-11, or weather related tragedies like Hurricane Katrina, Bekins Van Lines family rises to meet the challenges out in front of us all. Mr. Dalaskey added, “With the ever increasing pace and challenges of day to day business, it is good to take time to recognize the human part of our business, and to be able to assist someone who needs our help and support.
