Oregon Coast

This is Moving: Oregon is the Place to Be

What state are American’s moving to the most? No, it’s not Texas, North Carolina or California, but rather Oregon. According to American Moving & Storage (AMSA) 2014 report, 63 percent of inbound shipments were headed to the Beaver State. So, why is everyone moving to Oregon? Here are a few highlights of the state which may be why Oregonians love to live there.

Mountains, Ocean, Forests, Deserts – Oregon has them all!

Mt. Hood (

Mt. Hood (

Oregon offers plenty of natural beauty ranging from Pacific ocean coastlines to dense forests to the desert on the Eastern part of the state. Oregon even has the “7 wonders of Oregon,” which include the snow capped mountains of Mt. Hood, the 363 miles of coastline that ranges from sandy beaches to rugged cliffs and forestry in between. There is also the Columbia River, Painted Hills, Smith Rock, Wallwas and Crater Lake.

With all the different types of scenery, Oregon has plenty of outdoor recreation, such as white water rafting, mountain biking, hiking and kayaking.  Despite all the outdoor activities, keep in mind it does rain A LOT in Oregon, but when the weather is nice people in Oregon take advantage by spending it outside.


If you’ve seen the show “Portlandia,” you know Portland is weird – in a good way. The

progressive city is considered one of the nicest places to live in the U.S. If you are not into owning a car, Portland is a great city for public transportation options, which include commuter rails, buses, light rail, streetcar lines, and bike and pedestrian paths.

Portland is home to a rising culinary scene thanks to nationally-renowned chefs and the fresh home-grown Oregon food. If you want a quick bite, there are 400 food carts and mobile eateries located throughout the city. Wash your food down with a craft beer from one of the 58+ breweries located in the throughout the city.

Portland isn’t just a great city for humans, but it is also a great place for your dog. Portland has been ranked one of the most dog-friendly cities in the country with 33 dog parks, plenty of dog friendly restaurants and even its own social network for dogs.

No Sales TaxOregon

If you like shopping, the no sales tax in Oregon will come in handy. Oregon is one of five  states in the U.S. that doesn’t have sales tax (Delaware, New Hampshire, Alaska and Montana are the others). However, other taxes, such as property taxes, are higher than other states. Keep this in mind if you are looking to buy a home.

Green is a way of life

Oregonians know what a great place the state is, so they plan on keeping it that way by being one of the greenest states in the United States. Oregon tops lists in recycling, energy-efficiency rates and producing renewable energy. With that said, Oregon has the lowest carbon footprint and Portland is the greenest city in the country.

Children learn the ins-and-outs of Bekins Van Lines

The children of Bekins Van Lines employees were able to experience a day in the life of the moving industry for Take Your Child to Work Day on Thursday, April 23. The students who took part in the one-day event at Wheaton | Bekins not only sat with their parents and mentors to learn their job role, but also participated in activities designed to highlight each department’s function in the company. The day included interactive activities, such as building an advertisement, programming a computer program, assessing claims damage, and conducting customer service training. The students also participated in a packing relay and toured a moving truck. The day concluded with a stop at the Bekins store where the students purchased items with their day’s “pay”.

Check out the pictures from the day below:


Horses together

Against all Odds, Love and Patience Prevail

Giving back is a philosophy that is embedded in the culture of Bekins’ staff, agents, drivers and everyone connected with the van line. General Manager at Bekins A-1 Movers in Las Vegas, Nev., Nicole Timberlake, has lived that philosophy by finding a way to do her hobby while saving the lives of two horses.

When Nicole was two years old, she knew horses were going to be a huge part of her life. She was always active in riding and had horses growing up, but for ten years Nicole did not have a horse. She describes this as the “loneliest ten years of her life.” Nicole decided it was time to buy a horse in February 2014. She spent her nights researching  horses to buy. One night, someone reached out to Nicole asking if she would be interested in taking a horse in need. Nicole had this strong feeling inside her that she couldn’t ignore, so she made a call about a horse that no one knew what to do with named Tokyo.

After spending an hour on the phone and a few tear-jerking pictures, Nicole decided to take on Tokyo.

“I just felt I needed him as much as he needed me.  There was something in his eyes that pulled me in,” Nicole said. “He was skin and bones, covered in rain rot so bad it was confused as mud all over his body.  He had abscesses in his nose so big he was in constant pain just breathing. He was getting fed, but still losing weight.  I looked at those pleading eyes and thought he was the most beautiful mess I’d ever seen.  Through tears and then fear I began to arrange the transportation of this horse I’d never touched.”

Later that evening, Nicole received another call from a farm in Kentucky about a horse named Runaway Ruler. Runaway was going to be sent to a barn that was going to breed her year after year and Nicole didn’t want her to live a life like that. Within minutes Nicole had agreed to take on not one, but two horses in need.

Both horses had a history of racing, but both encountered very unfortunate circumstances and neglect. Nicole only heard their story through third and fourth party sources, but knew it was going to be a challenge for both her and the horses.

Runway’s past was bright as she was a promising race horse. Unfortunately, she suffered an injury and was pin fired – which is a treatment for an injured horse’s leg by burning, freezing or dousing it with acid or chemicals to help it heal. Pin firing is not taught in modern veterinary medicine and is considered barbaric and a cruel form of treatment. Due to the scars of pin firing, Runaway was then put in the “unwanted” category and ended up in a Kentucky facility for four years.

It was clear from the pictures Tokyo had endured some neglect. Nicole heard Tokyo was literally abandoned at a track when his owner/trainer died and the track was in the process of closing down. When he was finally found he was sent to a facility in Ohio that specialized in retraining and selling ex racehorses. Tokyo wasn’t able to be retrained, and he wasn’t wanted in that facility anymore. In fact, if Nicole did not take Tokyo, she was told he was headed to the slaughter house because he was mean and no one wanted to help him.

Getting the horses from Kentucky to Las Vegas was a difficult task. Nicole hired a driver to make the trek with both horses. During the trip, the driver called Nicole to let her know Runaway was down most of the trip and she seemed like she was in a lot of pain. The driver told Nicole he had been hauling horses for more years than he wanted to admit, and these two horses were the saddest cases he had ever seen. Nicole expected the horses to be in bad shape, but not as bad as they were in when they arrived.

The horses arrived at 2:20 a.m. on February 26, 2014. The driver and Nicole had difficultly getting Runaway down the ramp. When they finally were able to, they noticed she was walking on three legs. Then Tokyo wobbled off the truck barely being able to hold up his own weight, which wasn’t much to begin with.

“I knew this was going to rough, but seeing them in person was tough,” Nicole said. It was so tough that Nicole and the driver both hugged and cried after seeing the horses’ condition.

Nicole’s vet, Dr. Shur, arrived around 11 a.m. the next day and was in disbelief at the condition of both horses. Despite not being able to walk on all four legs, Runaway’s outlook was good. The vet found an abscess which was causing her pain when walking. Runaway also suffered from hair loss and scabbing on her chest from wearing a blanket that was too small. Within three months, Runaway was back to normal.

Rain rot on Tokyo’s legs

Tokyo on the other hand had a lot more to overcome. His issues extended with his weight, clenbuterol withdrawals, rain rot, strangles, abscesses, fear of being hit in the face, rocking horse knees and weak ankles. With lots of love and patience from Nicole, Tokyo overcame of the odds and recovered.

“Dr. Shur said I did an amazing job. She even said Tokyo was actually a little fat, which we will take a little fat!” Nicole said. “Dr. Shur also said Runaway was one of the most beautiful mares she had ever seen.”

A little more than a year later, Tokyo and Runaway, are completely recovered and spend their days running around their back yard and receiving lots of love from Nicole.

“I have hundreds and hundreds of hours wrapped up in caring for them and that has equated in thousands and thousands of tears of joy and great big smiles,” Nicole said. “I gave them a home, but they rescued me. Together the three of us are like a pack of lifesavers.”

Bekins Customer - positive word cloud

Spreading the Bekins Love on Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day from Bekins Van lines! Since we are feeling the love today, we are looking at what makes Bekins Van Lines a preferred interstate van line. Receiving feedback via our survey, the Customer Experience Report (CXR), speaking to customers on a daily basis and analyzing the journeys our customers make during every step of the move process reveals to us what customers believe sets us apart from our competition.


Beginning in 1891, Bekins has moved plenty of people and with that type of long-history, many of them are returning customers or have been recommended to the van line. In fact, four in ten customers pick Bekins because they have used us before and had a positive experience, or they have been recommended by someone they know and trust to hire Bekins for their move. This is our largest segment of customers and this percentage has increased significantly over the last several years, so our customer loyalty is ever growing.

Karen, a recent customer said in their CXR, “Very pleased, as always, with Bekins. The driver told us of delivery date upon pick up of our goods. He and his helper were very professional! I hope this is the last move, but if not will call Bekins again”

Rudy and Carolyn, more recent customers said, “Ford transfer moved us locally 2-3 times in or near Twin Falls, Idaho. They’re great!”

Feedback Friday - Brandon

Happy customer after her move with Brandon Moving & Storage.

“I had used Bekins for a business move a few years ago and was very satisfied, so I used them for my personal move this time from California to Nevada.  Our sales representative, Jennifer, in the Burlingame, California location (AMS Bekins) was very helpful, very friendly and very accommodating.  Our driver, Eric, was unbelievably excellent in every way.  He was courteous, on time and provided a very enjoyable moving experience. I would highly recommend Eric for training your drivers as he is definitely the ultimate example of customer service.  I have been in customer service for 29 years so I know what I am speaking about. I will always recommend Bekins to anyone I know is moving,” said Lynne in Dayton, Nev.


Our drivers are the hILovemyDriverSign_Bekinseart and soul of every move. Not only do drivers spend weeks driving around the country with household goods, they also help coordinate the helpers and communicate with the corporate office about scheduling.

Customers consistently rate our drivers with high marks. More than nine in ten customers indicate in their survey that they would choose to have their exact same Bekins driver move them again for their next move!

“My driver, Alex, was absolutely fabulous.  He was on time in both places, as promised, took great care to let me know what was happening, was very reassuring at all times, personable, respectful, supervised the movers well, and didn’t hesitate to do things himself if he felt it was necessary,” Karen from Massachusetts said.

Barbara was very complimentary of her driver, “John was our mover and we could not have asked for anything better. He was simply great.”


One of the first interactions the consumer has with the van line is through our salespeople. Our salespeople are known for their expertise and professionalism in moving. This is another leverageable strength of Bekins. Approximately nine in ten customers have very favorable perceptions of our salespeople’s courtesy and professional service. This service promotes trust and confidence in our customers that Bekins can reliably and effectively handle their moves.

“In addition to the actual movers, Val Hardwick (sales mgr. AMS Relocation) and her staff were thorough, professional, on top of her game and a pleasure to work with. In this crazy world where so much doesn’t work, Bekins is doing it right with integrity. Thank you!” said Pix in her recent CXR.


Lincoln Moving & Storage

The Lincoln Moving & Storage loves Bekins customers!

Customer feedback and statistical analysis of our survey data reveal communication is biggest driver in shaping customer perceptions of Bekins. Communication and great customer service makes the difference between a good move and a great move. Since proactive and accurate information is so important to our customers, we are constantly reviewing our processes to improve our communication with them.


Our goal is to exceed expectations with every move. With that goal in mind, we are constantly reviewing the customer experience through the CXR and other feedback mechanisms platforms for ways to improve the process and make it as stress-free as possible.

A Personal Customer Experience Leads to Increased Customer Engagement at Bekins

By Stephanie Linville, Director of Market Research & Pricing

The customer experience (CX) is no longer a series of independent interactions customers have with the various touch points in our organization; it’s an ongoing dialogue between Bekins and our customers.

This journey begins when customers are deciding which van line to choose for their interstate move. While some might view the customer relationship ending when the move is complete, the reality is the dialogue continues in the form of our customer surveys, referrals of our company to family and friends (which, by the way, happens to be our biggest source of new customers), repeat business with former customers and online LovemyCustomerSign_Bekinsreviews posted to social media.

Engaged customers are those who continue this dialogue with us. They are loyal enough to refer us to others and/or continue to use us for their future moves. If these customer behaviors are our end goal, then how can we get our customers engaged with Bekins?

Providing a personal customer experience is the key to engaging our customers. That said, we are fortunate this challenge should be easier to accomplish in the moving and storage business than in other industries, since our service is a highly personal one. We are in our customers’ homes, handling their belongings and interacting with members of their family, including their children and pets.

In addition, generally speaking, most people do not make multiple interstate moves during their lifetime, but when they do, the experience is a major life event due to the significant expense and stress. Because of these factors, when Bekins does an excellent or poor job, customers feel strongly enough about our performance to let us know. This is one of the reasons why we have such a great response rate to our customer surveys – currently 55% for our electronic surveys.

What does this mean? Well, simply by the nature of our business, all of our customers have the potential to be highly engaged. And if the Bekins customer experience is affected by every touch point in the organization, then all of our employees, agents, drivers and crew members impact CX in some way.

Tuesday, October 7th, marks the second annual CX Day, and Bekins we are celebrating our customers during the entire week of October 6 – 10! Just like we showed gratitude for our drivers during Driver Appreciation Week, we will continue this successful marketing campaign and show appreciation for our customers by having our agents, drivers and employees take pictures of themselves (and customers, if possible) holding “I ‘heart’ customers” signs and upload these images to our social media sites. We look forward to a fun and memorable CX Day!

The Importance of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Bekins Van Lines corporate office accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday, Aug. 20 to raise awareness for ALS as well as donate to ALS Association.

Bekins challenged all of its agents to do the same. Before dumping ice water on yourself, here are some things you should know about ALS from

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
  • ALS is not contagious.
  • It is estimated that ALS is responsible for nearly two deaths per hundred thousand population annually.
  • Approximately 5,600 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year. The incidence of ALS is two per 100,000 people, and it is estimated that as many as 30,000 Americans may have the disease at any given time.
  • Although the life expectancy of an ALS patient averages about two to five years from the time of diagnosis, this disease is variable and many people live with quality for five years and more.  More than half of all patients live more than three years after diagnosis.
  • About twenty percent of people with ALS live five years or more and up to ten percent will survive more than ten years and five percent will live 20 years. There are people in whom ALS has stopped progressing and a small number of people in whom the symptoms of ALS reversed.
  • ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic or socioeconomic boundaries.
  • ALS can strike anyone.
  • The onset of ALS is insidious with muscle weakness or stiffness as early symptoms. Progression of weakness, wasting and paralysis of the muscles of the limbs and trunk as well as those that control vital functions such as speech, swallowing and later breathing generally follows.
  • There can be significant costs for medical care, equipment and home health care giving later in the disease.  It is important to be knowledgeable about your health plan coverage and other programs for which your may be eligible, including SSA, Medicare, Medical and Veteran Affairs benefits.
  • ALS Association has raised 41.8 million from the Ice Bucket Challenge Donations. Donations can be made here.

Below are the videos and photos from yesterday’s challenge!

Bekins storage in Hollywood

Throwback Thursday: Bekins in Southern California

Since 1891, Bekins Van Lines has been a leader of innovation in the household-goods moving industry. Throughout Bekins rich history, the specialization in storage became a primary service, especially in Los Angeles and its surrounding areas. For a special throwback Thursday, here is an article from the LA Times in 1989. Looking back how Bekins changed the storage business as well as the South California landscape.

Bekins: A Storehouse of History
LA Times
March 01, 1989
Leon Whiteson

They rise like medieval castle keeps above busy Southern California intersections. Their steep blank sides, relieved by rows of small windows, give no clue to the activities behind their fortress-like walls. Only the skyline signs reading Bekins Storage reveal the mundane purpose of these muscular architectural landmarks.

The era of the grand Bekins castles is past, along with the grandeur of the service that moved America when the entire country seemed to be shifting West. But as the company’s late president intended, Bekins’ powerful buildings stand as permanent landmarks on our changing urban landscape.

According to contemporaries, Milo Bekins believed that “moving is the American way.” He also believed that customers entrusting their personal possessions to Bekins needed the sense of reassurance offered by solidly built warehouses located on prominent sites. In a young and rapidly expanding city such as Los Angeles, where so many buildings seemed flimsy and transitory, he decided that his structures for temporary storage would appear unshakably permanent.

Bekins built its first reinforced concrete warehouses in the 1920s and ’30s. A prime example of its architectural style is the 55-year-old building at 929 S. Brand Blvd. in Glendale, a solid oblong box that towers seven stories high.

Bekins Santa MonicaAt street level, the arches of a recessed arcade mark a regular rhythm between the slender vertical columns that rise to the roof and end in finials resembling little dunce caps. Between the main columns are small pilasters that form frilly edges to the concrete cliff at top and bottom. Tiny windows make the building appear even bulkier, increasing its presence on the street.

Yet another landmark warehouse, an eight-story castle built in 1929, is located at the corner of Pico and Crenshaw boulevards. A ground-floor arcade houses a row of shops, including Bekins’ furniture sales division, and arches are two stories high, allowing light to filter into second-floor offices.

In its heyday the Bekins Co. owned more than 100 storage buildings in 14 states. In an attempt to streamline its operations in the face of stiff competition, Bekins began selling off its real estate in the early 1980s. By 1983, when purchased by Minstar Inc. of Minneapolis, Minn., Bekins’ stock of warehouses had been reduced to 55.

Founded in 1891

Bekins Van Lines was founded in 1891 in Sioux City, Iowa, by two young Dutch immigrant brothers, Martin and John Bekins. Martin moved west four years later, first to Omaha, Neb., and then Los Angeles. In 1895 the brothers organized the first transcontinental move from Sioux City to Los Angeles, and opened an office here in an old van at the corner of 2nd and Main streets.

bekins-storageOne year later, Martin Bekins owned six horse-drawn vans and a one-story brick storage building at 360 S. Alameda St. A five-story reinforced concrete building was later built on the site and still stands alongside the original warehouse.

The Bekinses were innovators in the moving and storage business. The first company in the West to specialize in household goods, Bekins later pioneered the concept of containerized storage. In 1903, Martin Bekins introduced the “side-winder” gasoline-powered moving truck to Los Angeles.

Martin’s son, Milo, took over as Bekins chairman in 1927, and built the company into the largest operation of its kind in the world. In the 1950s, 1,000 Bekins vans rolled across the country, serving a restless post-World War II population moving from the cities to the suburbs, and from one suburb to another.

A Simple Formula

The pre-World War II Bekins buildings were designed by structural engineers rather than architects. The vaguely Italianate style of decoration, featuring mini-pilasters and curly roof lines, was culled from the contemporary architectural pattern books popular among designers at the time. An example of the style can be seen at the 511 S. Fair Oaks Ave. warehouse in Pasadena.

Bekins buildings had a simple structural and design formula. Columns were spaced in 26-foot bays under 12-foot ceilings. At the rear were one or two high doors for loading and unloading goods. Ground floor frontages were glassed-in for small shops or offices. Big metal signs displaying the company name dominated the skyline.

LABekinsSMBThe warehouses have stored an extraordinary range of personal items over the decades, from cases of monocles to the Pentagon Papers. The latter, a top-secret study of U.S. military involvement in Indochina, was stored in the Bekins Beverly Hills warehouse at 215 S. Canon Drive, in “several metal handcases, a footlocker, 18 book volumes, a large cardboard carton and a large carton file,” according to an affidavit filed by the U.S. Department of Justice.

In the 1940s and ’50s, the style of the Bekins buildings changed. In keeping with the undecorated modernist fashion then coming into vogue, the warehouses became plainer and squatter.

Typically Featureless

The 1943 four-story concrete warehouse at 35 W. Huntington Drive in Arcadia, a similar design at 2101 E. Carson Street in Long Beach, and the 1953 five-story building at 1425 Holt Blvd. in Pomona are examples of the slab-sided, featureless and almost windowless blocks typical of this period.

The company also bought warehouses built by other storage companies. The 11-story Hollywood Storage Co. building at 1025 N. Highland Ave. was the tallest structure in Hollywood when erected in 1925. It was purchased by Bekins in 1939. And in 1943, a nine-story structure at 3625 S. Grand Ave., built in 1924 by the Birch-Smith Storage Co., was added to Bekins real estate inventory.
