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."
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.
