No hothouse flower, Budd Van Lines aims to be a hardy perennial of the corporate relocation business. From coast to coast, the independent van line company moves the household goods of employees who are relocating at the behest of their employers, about 6,500 annually. It offers packing and moving services to all 48 contiguous states from branch offices in New Jersey, California, Wisconsin, Georgia, Ohio, and Texas. Companies that have called upon Budd Van Lines to help employees move include Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merck & Co., and PricewaterhouseCoopers. Budd Van Lines was founded in 1975.
Once an agent of other moving companies, Budd Van Lines declared its independence in 1984. The company works to distinguish itself from rivals by minimizing the number of contact points for families that are being moved.
Budd Van Lines assigns teams of drivers to each move that also handle packing and unpacking for customers. Moving companies that operate through networks of agents might instead have different people responsible for loading, driving, and unloading. – less
