More about Sullivan and United Van Lines service:

Sullivan Moving and Storage was established in 1912 and is the oldest moving and storage company in San Diego county and South Orange County. When United Van Lines was formed in 1944, Sullivan became a charter agent. Mark Fischer, the current president, after a long history with Sullivan purchased the company in 1987. We are the largest United agent in San Diego county, and currently have two full service offices, a military only agency, two special product distribution centers and a full service Mayflower agency in Phoenix.

Sullivan Moving and Storage is a equal shareholder with other United agents in UNIGROUP, Inc. UNIGROUP is a holding company that not only owns United Van Lines, but also Mayflower Van Lines, an insurance company, a truck leasing company with consolidated revenues in excess of $2 billion.

Consistent growth, financial stability, customer service emphasis and low turnover are the ingredients in the success formula for Sullivan Moving and Storage.
