Maryland relocation expert Movers USA breaks company records during three-day, 20,000-box supermarket move.
Super Bowl weekend of 2012 is one Movers USA will never forget – and despite some “Giant” influence, it’s not because of the big game.
One of the best-reviewed relocation specialists in the Maryland/Virginia/DC area completed a record-breaking move between Feb. 3 and Feb. 6, packing up the Fresh & Green’s supermarket on West 41st Street – along with the contents of a second Fresh & Green’s mega store in Parkville – and moving the goods to four different locations in greater Baltimore. According to a press statement issued today by Movers USA, the time-sensitive project involved 30 trucks, dozens of extra workers and over 15,000 boxes of nonperishable items, all records for the veteran moving company.
“Movers USA is proud to be a part of such a successful operation,” said Movers USA Founder and President Gil BenShoushan, who also chairs the Maryland Movers Conference at the Maryland Motor Truck Association. “It was an amazing experience. I’d personally like to thank each and every person who took part in this move. We could never do it without the dedication of our employees, as well as Fresh & Green’s employees.”
In addition to the Hampden Fresh & Green’s, the Mrs. Green’s Management Corp. sold its Parkville Fresh & Green’s mega store to grocery kingpin Giant Foods, which plans to convert both locations to Giant supermarkets. Both stores will be closed for renovations during the conversion process, according to Giant Foods, and no date has been set for their reopening.
When the sale was announced Feb. 3, Movers USA put its carefully planned operation into effect. The two stores – over 80,000 square feet combined – contained enough goods to fill over 15,000 individual boxes, according to the Movers USA statement.
“When Giant announced the sale Friday afternoon and we got the green light to start the move, we didn’t waste any time,” BenShoushan noted. “Our Commercial Division had worked out the logistics and was ready to roll.”
Precise coordination between store managers and Movers USA’s small army of packers, movers and drivers helped the venerable moving company honor the Mrs. Green Management Corp.’s wishes and complete the relocation in just three days.
“All of our different departments worked together to complete the move on time,” the Movers USA president said. “I’m very proud of our employees and extremely grateful to the Mrs. Green Management Corp. for their cooperation and trust during this delicate operation.”
“I’m so upset Fresh & Green’s is closing,” noted Louisa Bohm, a Hampden resident who shopped at the West 41st Street market. “They had the best prepared foods and the best selection of natural and organic foods in town.”
While she’s “not entirely sure” where she’s going to go now for her organic selections, Bohm said she was impressed with the efficiency and professionalism shown by the Movers USA crews during the super move, not only emptying every aisle in the large market but leaving the property in pristine condition when the job was done.
“They worked for hours and hours every day,” said Bohm. “There were dozens of trucks lined up from Friday through Monday and there must have been a hundred people. They didn’t even stop for the Super Bowl.”
“We’ve always prided ourselves on our professionalism, and always will,” BenShoushan said. “When a client like Mrs. Green’s Management Corp. has a big project that requires an expert touch, they call us, because they know Movers USA can handle the job.”
