AMWAT Moving Company’s History
AMWAT has a long history as a moving company from Florida. AMWAT transitioned from “A Man With A Truck” a local moving company, into a transportation, logistics, warehousing and storage company that handles all commodities from used household goods, commercial goods, art exhibits to scientific equipment. Presently, we can move just about anything anywhere in the world. In late 1997 the company was a one man operation, executing local moves with a pick-up truck and trailer out of his home. Shortly thereafter, the company acquired three moving trucks, leased a small warehouse and employed six individuals. In 2005, the company restructured with Gloria Pugh joining the company as chief executive officer and Dean Pugh as chief operating officer.
The collaboration and energy between the Pughs impacted the company very positively. The moving company was now moving statewide and obtained interstate authority from US DOT to conduct long distance moves across state lines, mainly in the southeastern United States. We are increasingly evolving and setting new goals on a regular basis. Management realized in order to be sustainable and competitive it needed to diversify its overall market and lines of business. In June 2008, A Man With A Truck acquired the largest and oldest moving company in the area.
In June 2008, AMWAT Moving became a military certified facility and maintains 100% rating with the military due to our attention to customer service. In 2009, AMWAT included the transportation of all commodities except for hazardous materials to its lines of business. Our focus is becoming a one stop shop for all our customers’ moving and freight shipping needs.
AMWAT is consistently evolving daily. We value and learn from all the opportunities that we have encountered and continue to encounter. Every event whether positive or negative has led us to this point in our moving company’s history. Given the huge undertaking we took on in June 2008 in the midst of a recession which caused over 500 moving companies in the State of Florida to close in 2009, we have achieved a lot and have so much more to achieve.
