Moving with AMWAT Moving & Warehousing

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.
As a result, the company rebranded to AMWAT (the acronym for A Man With A Truck) and moved into its new facility consisting of two warehouses.
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.

Did You Know

QuestionThe public idea of the trucking industry in the United States popular culture has gone through many transformations.However, images of the masculine side of trucking are a common theme throughout time.The 1940's first made truckers popular, with their songs and movies about truck drivers. Then in the 1950's theywere depictedas heroes of the road, living a life of freedom on the open road.Trucking culture peaked in the 1970's as theywere glorifiedas modern days cowboys, outlaws, and rebels. Since then the portrayal has come with a more negative connotation as we see in the 1990's.Unfortunately, the depiction of truck drivers went from such a positive depiction to that of troubled serial killers.

Question“Country music scholar Bill Malone has gone so far as to say that trucking songs account for the largest component of work songs in the country music catalog. For a style of music that has, since its commercial inception in the 1920s, drawn attention to the coal man, the steel drivin’ man, the railroad worker, and the cowboy, this certainly speaks volumes about the cultural attraction of the trucker in the American popular consciousness.” — Shane Hamilton

QuestionA relatable reality t.v. show to the industry is the show Ice Road Truckers, which premiered season 3 on the History Channel in 2009. The show documents the lives of truck drivers working the scary Dalton Highway in Alaska. Following drivers as they compete to see which one of them can haul the most loads before the end of the season.It'll grab you with its mechanical problems that so many have experienced and as you watch them avoid the pitfalls of dangerous and icy roads!

QuestionIn 1991 the film "Thelma & Louise" premiered,rapidlybecoming a well known movie.Throughout the movie, a dirty and abrasive truck driver harasses the two women during chance encounters.Author Michael Dunne describes this minor character as "fat and ignorant" and "a lustful fool blinded by a delusion of male superiority".Thelma and Louise exact their revenge by feigning interest in him and then blowing up his tanker truck full of gas.

QuestionBusiness routes generally follow the original routing of the numbered route through a city or town.Beginning in the 1930s and lasting thru the 1970s was an era marking a peak in large-scale highway construction in the United States. U.S. Highways and Interstates weretypicallybuilt in particular phases.Their first phase of development began with the numbered route carrying traffic through the center of a city or town.The second phase involved the construction of bypasses around the central business districts of the towns they began.As bypass construction continued, original parts of routes that had once passed straight thru a city would often become a "business route".
