Moving with Pacific Storage Company

Pacific Storage Company origins date back to 1856, when it was known as Pacific Leather Tannery. Charles and Jacob Wagner, both attracted to California from Germany during the Gold Rush established the tannery business. At the time, it was one of Stockton's largest employers, and occupied an entire square block of the city.
The tanning industry grew to such an extent in the Orient that it caused a sharp decline in operations at Pacific Tannery in the middle of the 1920's; and it ceased its operations.
In 1928 the Company moved into the commodity storage business and changed its name to Pacific Storage Company. We then started to move and warehouse furniture, and became a Bekins Moving & Storage agent in 1932. We are currently the second oldest and third largest Bekins agent in the United States, with warehouses in Northern California.
In 1965 we entered the record storage business as well. We have steadily increased the type of service offerings, which now includes not just paper storage, but media storage, along with document shredding and document imaging. To better reflect the myriad of product and service offerings, the name of the record storage division has changed to Pacific Records Management, with locations in Sacramento.
Pacific Storage Company, offering both moving and storage and records management still occupies part of the original tannery site, including a four story structure which is now the corporate headquarters and a warehouse for business record storage facilities.
Pacific Storage Company was founded with an old truck and a marvelous dream. The old truck is long gone, but the dream still lives on.

They were quick, proficient, and in particular affable and benevolent. Not once did they whine. They made moving, more often than not an overwhelming attempt for me by and by, a totally quiet and positive experience. Would suggest.

Did You Know

QuestionAnother film released in 1975, White Line Fever, also involved truck drivers. It tells the story of a Vietnam War veteran who returns home to take over his father's trucking business. But, he soon finds that corrupt shippers are trying to force him to carry illegal contraband.While endorsing another negative connotation towards the trucking industry, it does portray truck drivers with a certain wanderlust.

QuestionIn 1971, author and director Steven Spielberg, debuted his first feature length film. His made-for-tv film, Duel, portrayed a truck driver as an anonymous stalker.Apparentlythere seems to be a trend in the 70's tonegativelystigmatize truck drivers.

QuestionA semi-trailer is almost exactly what it sounds like, it is a trailer without a front axle.Proportionally, its weightis supported bytwo factors. The weight falls upon a road tractor or by a detachable front axle assembly, known as a dolly. Generally, a semi-traileris equippedwith legs, known in the industry as "landing gear". This means it canbe loweredto support it when itis uncoupled. In the United States, a trailer may not exceed a length of 57 ft (17.37 m) on interstate highways.However, it is possible to link two smaller trailers together to reach a length of 63 ft (19.20 m).

QuestionThe USDOT (USDOT or DOT)is considereda federal Cabinet department within the U.S. government.Clearly, this department concerns itself with all aspects of transportation with safety as a focal point.The DOT wasofficiallyestablished by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, beginning its operation on April 1, 1967. Superior to the DOT, the United States Secretary of Transportation governs the department.The mission of the DOT is to "Serve the United States by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible, and convenient transportation system that meets our vital national interests and enhances the quality of life for the American people, today and into the future." Essentially thisstates how important it is to improve all types of transportation as a way to enhance both safety and life in general etc.It is important to note that the DOT is not in place to hurt businesses, but to improve our "vital national interests" and our "quality of life". The transportation networks are in definite need of such fundamental attention. Federal departments such as the USDOT are key to this industry by creating and enforcing regulations with intentions to increase the efficiency and safety of transportation.

QuestionThe 1950's were quite different than the years to come.They were more likely tobe considered"Knights of the Road", if you will, for helping stranded travelers.In these times truck driverswere enviedandwere viewedas an opposition to the book "The Organization Man".Bestseller in 1956, author William H. Whyte's novel describes "the man in the gray flannel suit", who sat in an office every day.He's describing a typical office style job that is very structured with managers watching over everyone. Truck drivers represented the opposite of all these concepts. Popular trucking songs glorified the life of drivers as independent "wanderers".Yet, there were attempts to bring back the factory style efficiency, such as using tachnographs. Although most attempts resulted in little success. Driversroutinelysabotaged and discovered new ways to falsify the machine's records.
