TWO MEN AND A TRUCK- Louisville
Moving Company in Louisville, KY
Brothers Brig and Jon Sorber began moving people in the Lansing area using an old pickup truck. They had their mom, Mary Ellen Sheets, evolve a logo to put in a weekly community newspaper. That stick-men logo still rests on every truck, sign and advertisement. After the brothers left for college, Sheets continued to field calls for moving services while she worked a complete-time data processing job with the State of Michigan. In 1985, she decided to make things official by purchasing a 14-foot truck for $350 and hiring a pair of movers.
