Moving and Storage Video Clips

While doing some searching earlier, we found that many of the moving and storage companies who have television commercials have posted those commercials on YouTube. We are excited about this because having a moving and storage blog, we can post these videos directly to the blog for everyone to enjoy. As you will find below, we have embedded several video links. Just click on the main picture and watch the short video. We hope that you enjoy this new feature on our blog!

Mayflower Television Commercial

United Van Lines Commercial

As I started doing some searching on YouTube, I realized that the commercials I mentioned previously are posted on YouTube. Take a look for yourself!

Allied Van Lines Commercial

North American Van Lines Commercial

Wheaton Van Lines Commercial

Bekins mention on YouTube

This is just for fun, but at 2 minutes, 12 seconds into this clip - Bekins gets their name mentioned. Enjoy!

Movers on TV

If you have had a chance to watch television over the past couple of months, you may have noticed that some moving and storage companies are starting to use this form of media for advertising. I have seen commercials for both Mayflower Transit and United Van Lines. In the Mayflower Transit commercial, there is a new bride standing on the front porch with her husband. Before he traditionally carries her over the threshold, he wraps her in bubblewrap, and then proceeds to pick her up. In the next scene you can see that he is a Mayflower employee - and he takes extra care in moving all things precious. These really are great commercials and have gotten the attention of the public. Keep of the good work! We hope to see more movers advertising this way in the future!
