Movegreen Makes Big Moves
Movegreen, the award-winning eco-friendly moving and storage company, today announced the acquisition of two moving and storage powerhouses, La Habra Relocations and Watford Moving and Storage. Located in Southern Orange County and Santa Clarita, the acquisitions will allow Movegreen to move deeper into the Los Angeles and Orange county markets, add a fifth storage location and hire key industry personnel.
Movegreen has been accelerating its strategy to become the go-to resource for moving and storage in Southern California for some time, and these recent transactions were strategic, supporting the company’s goal of moving into new service areas, acquiring new storage space and hiring top industry talent.
“These strategic acquisitions not only cement us into the two largest counties in Southern California, they have given us significant growth in the storage space and more efficient and strategic routing from all our locations.” said Erik Haney, CEO of Movegreen. “We now have access from Santa Barbara to Irvine, with new reach into Pasadena, Beverly Hills and all of Southern Orange County. With storage, we now have more than 2,200 occupied storage units across these locations.”
La Habra Relocations is a long-standing moving and storage powerhouse in Orange County. With the storage-only acquisition, Movegreen was able not only to expand their storage resources, but talent forces. All Movegreen storage customers were relocated to the Cypress facility.
The Watford acquisition was for both storage and moving, and significant in that it bridged the gap between Orange County and Ventura, opening up the entire valley of Beverly Hills, Pasadena, Agoura Hills, Encino and Calabasas, giving Movegreen full coverage into Los Angeles County. Movegreen also brought on top talent including Operations and Warehouse Manager, Rigo Almendarez, Senior Sales Advisor Sean Milton and former Owner of Watford, now Territory Manager, Daniel O'Brien.
