History of Green Valley Moving

Green Valley Moving began in 2009, born out of a desire to fill a huge need in our
community. Over the years, while working with many of our clients through Green Valley Auctions,

I witnessed the need for another quality local moving company to serve
Harrisonburg, Staunton, Waynesboro and surrounding communities. After many years
of experience moving antiques and household furnishings, it only made sense to branch
out and apply these skills to a full-service moving company.

By 2015, after adding two more 26’ moving vans to our fleet and several more trained movers, we expanded our services to out-of-state moves. Since expanding, we have completed moves from Virginia to New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Delaware, Rhode Island, New Jersey, North & South Carolina, Maryland, West Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Florida and Kansas.

In order to maintain our high level of service, our crew leaders see a job through from loading and driving to unloading. We are a detail oriented moving company and take special care to ensure that your belongings are organized and moved carefully. We even provide helpful moving tips and things to consider when planning a move.

In addition to offering services for local and long distance moving, Green Valley Moving
is also proud to offer Senior Transitioning services. Whether you are moving yourself or
helping to move a loved one, you can put your trust in Green Valley.

Since 1967, we have been a family-owned business. Family has always been the center
of everything we do at Green Valley. In order to honor our employee’s commitment to
their own families, we try to limit out-of-state moves to a two-night stay away from
home.

If you are planning a move, I hope you will consider letting our family move your family.

Our Mission

The mission of Green Valley Moving is to serve God, bringing honor and glory to Him; to serve
our customers, respecting them as ourselves and putting their interests above our own; to
serve our employees, providing an environment in which they can grow professionally and
personally; and to serve our community, having a positive impact on our neighbors.

Inspiration for Our Mission Statement

I was raised in our family business, working after school and summers as a kid. Work was where
life took place, it’s where we learned first-hand right from wrong, how to treat people and how
to do our best. I knew that I wanted the same for my kids. When I became sole owner of Green
Valley and started Green Valley Moving, I realized that my responsibility wasn’t just my kids, it
was also my staff. While my parents never had a formal written mission statement, the
unwritten rule was to be honest, treat people right and do the best job possible. As I watch my
kids work in the business, I realize what an impact those unwritten rules had on my life. I pray
that this written mission statement will have such an impact on my kids, my employees and
beyond.

Now in 2015 (six years after I became sole owner and added the moving division), Green Valley finally has a written mission statement. While my parents never had a formal mission statement, the unwritten rule was to be honest, treat people right and do the best job possible. As I watch my kids work in the business, I realize what an impact those unwritten rules had on my life. I pray that this written mission statement will have such an impact on my kids, my employees and beyond.

Thanks, Mom and Dad.
