Recently, George flew out to Arizona to pick up Tom and Donna Nelson and drive them back... No motorhome this time though! On their way up, they ate dinner at an Olive Garden in Joplin, Missouri. Their server was Julia and she knew we were traveling through. Their server, Julia, was a very pleasant young lady who was in Missouri with a soccer scholarship at Southern Missouri University. She left them this note on their bill at the end of the meal. George made sure the store manager knew they enjoyed their visit, especially because of Julia's kind treatment of them. 

We had our summer employee appreciation party with the Otto Nelson crew at the Kenosha Kingfish game on Saturday, June 23, 2018. Jeff had arranged for George to throw out the first pitch, but something went "foul" on the plan and George wasn't on the list to participate... Oh well, there is always next year for George to try out his pitching arm! A fun time was had by all 44 of us!



As a board member at Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce, George has witnessed how beneficial these scholarships are for our community. They're a great opportunity for someone who may not have the financial means to obtain a degree but would like to. Last year George was on the scholarship committee that interviewed 5 very bright and talented people. It was rewarding to see those that are working to put themselves and their family in a better position do so. 

We recently had a long distance customer from the Beloit area moving to Alabama by the gulf. There was an amazing amount of antiques in this home that were a treat just to see... with many one-of-a-kind items. The best way to protect for transport is to provide crating services. This order had 18 crates in total. This home was an old farm property that was very unique in its own way as well with an in-ground pool and pool house.

Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha's annual Dairy State Cheese & Beer Festival is a fun and important event. This is their largest fundraiser.

United Van Lines has a Driver of the Month and Honorable Mention List for each area of the country of which there are 6 zones. We are in the Great Lakes region. We are pleased that two of our drivers are acknowledged this month. Ted Steele and Michael Villarreal – great job guys, and thank you for your efforts!

We had a great time at United Way of Kenosha County's Readers are Leaders event! Each year we love to participate in this event that brings volunteers into schools to read to children and help cultivate a love of reading. The Otto crew included Kim, Rachelle, Mikki and Tori.

We're proud to help sponsor the Kenosha Expo, hosted by the Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce, on Saturday, March 3 and Sunday, March 4 at UW Parkside. 

Stop by to see George working the admissions area on Sunday. This will be a great event to check out local businesses and what they have to offer. Proceeds will be used directly in scholarships for Kenosha area youth, so bid aggressively on raffle and auction items to help out! We'll be featuring our moving kit so come check it out!

Another successful delivery! We safely delivered Tom and Donna Nelson to their condo in Arizona. Cruise America had 6 brand new class B RVs that were in Chicago and they wanted them in Mesa, AZ. We joked we should be paid to do this, but they had very reasonable rent for a one-way drive that allowed us to take some items out to Tom's place that he couldn't have taken on an airplane. This also gave George a chance to have some fun driving and get out of the cold!

We are beyond humbled and excited to be a recipient of Kenosha Area Business Alliance's 2017 Ovation Fast Five Award. Tonight we will receive the award at their event. 

We're also flattered to receive this letter from Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefish congratulating us. 

As always we're happy to be open for business in Wisconsin!
