BY DANNY SLOAN
Moving has always been in my blood. My father was in the military and had a 30-year career with US Customs. Our family moved seven times before I was 14 years old. My brothers and I spent many days building forts out of all the moving boxes. I remember covering my little brother with inventory stickers we peeled off all the furniture.
Our final move was to Vienna Virginia in 1979 where I laid down roots in the Washington DC metropolitan area
As a senior at James Madison High School, I was recruited by a local mover for a summer job as a helper. I spent the next four years helping to put myself through college by working summers and holidays moving furniture. While others spent spring breaks at the beach, I was loading and unloading trucks. I received my business degree in 1989 from James Madison University.
After graduation, I stayed with the same moving company working in sales and marketing. Over a 20-year period, I assisted this company in growing from a one truck operation to a company with 10 trucks and over 40 employees. This hands-on experience assisted me in learning about every aspect of the moving industry.
I always had dreams of starting my own moving company. I had seen the good aspects as well as the bad aspects of the moving industry. I really wanted to be able to take the good things I had learned over these many years and incorporate them into something of my own. With this passion, Sloan's Moving and Storage was born.
