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. 

Saturday, February 18, 2017, was Girl Scout Cookie Day here in Kenosha! For the last several years at Otto Nelson we have donated our warehouse and 4-5 employees to receive and help load up all cookies sold in our area. This year it was just under 12,000 cases of cookies! The Girl Scout council in our area does a fantastic job coordinating their volunteers and setting up for Friday before “Cookie Day” to pre-pack all of their cookie orders. They assign pick-up times to the girl scouts' parents throughout the day.

Want to know what $830 looks like? Here it is! This pipe is no longer than four feet. It comes off the turbo charger and is routed under the cab on a 2010 International Prostar Semi Tractor. Not only do DOT regulations require trucks to be regularly inspected and maintenance files kept, but it’s just good practice too. We take care of our trucks. Most new over-the-road trucks that you see on the interstates will average over $125,000 for purchase new and that is just the power unit.

We recently delivered furnishings to the Springs at Kenosha clubhouse, a new apartment complex west of I-94 on Hwy. 50. This has been a warehouse receive and redeliver project. We receive all inbound deliveries and hold for a specific delivery date. In this case it was over the course of 2 months. On moving day our crew met with two of their interior designers to deliver, unpack, and put in place including some light assembly.

Consider Otto Nelson Moving & Storage for your next receive and deliver project!

We love hearing from our customers since our #1 goal is to treat them right! Here is a short and sweet review we recently received on a move from Brookfield, WI to Dunlap, IL.  
"Hello Mikki and Terry, we had a very good experience with your packing and moving services. The move was done in a timely manner and without any hassles. All our stuff is delivered undamaged and unbroken. Thanks & Regards, Sarika"


This week we assembled pallet racking in our new addition. George laid out the plans himself and we enjoyed a few laughs at his expense as he hadn’t quite drawn the plans to scale. Nonetheless, it was exciting to see the space coming together as it was envisioned prior to the new build. This space will increase Otto Nelson Moving & Storage's abilities to serve our non-household goods customers, since our existing facilities were designed more for just household storage in mind.

George just had the decals installed on his new truck. He typically puts 500-700 (and up to 900) miles as he travels around our area providing transportation quotes. So, don’t be surprised if you see him around town! At Otto Nelson Moving & Storage we're committed to providing service to anyone we can possibly reach!


Otto Nelson Moving & Storage has been known as the "Kringle Agent" for a long time. We typically send out over 100 kringle at Christmas time to our agency partners and customers for some holiday cheer, and we have a lot of fun in the office as we do the packaging.

Anyone from the Kenosha/Racine area knows exactly what a kringle is, but it is always nice to get the notes back from agents in the south or west that can't wait until they get another tasty "coffee cake thingy" from us next year.
