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!

Graebel Moving and Storage was an established Wisconsin moving company started by the Graebel family. Unfortunately, they went out of business earlier this year.

George and Tom did some research and found where their equipment was being sold. We were fortunate to have purchased 3 of their trailers at 2 different sale locations in Minnesota and Illinois. This was the first one back from the paint shop this past week. In the yard for one day and we had it equipped and out on the street the next day to load and put to work! 

"We were 100% pleased with your service. Even though there was a miscommunication in boxes delivery (I should have checked) you guys went out of your way to get them to us on delivery day.  George was very good.  And, Will and the moving crew were amazing.  I will recommend you guys to anyone that ever needs movers."

Otto Nelson Moving & Storage donated two trailers to the Mail Carriers Food Drive in May 2017. Our role was easier than the mail carriers as all we needed to do was provide the trailers and driver to deliver. George participated at the Shalom Center – he had to brush off the barnacles to put our trailer in a blind side back along the building next to a trailer donated by Kutzler.

This week, members of our team participated in the annual United Way of Kenosha County's Readers are Leaders. 

Kim, Rachelle, Mikki and Tori (Kim's daughter) read Dr. Seuss books at a local elementary school. We love participating in community events such as these!


Included in our services is the process of protecting your home. Floor runners and carpet shields are used for floor protection. In the past these were more like painter’s tarps that were canvas in nature. These were fairly slippery on hardwoods as well as some tile flooring. Today’s product is more rubberized with a non-stick non-skid backing even when placed on staircases.
