Stevens Worldwide Van Lines is proud of its 105-year heritage as an American company, and as our country celebrates Independence Day this weekend Stevens joins the national salute to the United States.
With a history that dates to days of horses and wagons, Stevens has grown and progressed in stride with America, but has worked diligently to maintain the traditional business and family values that started the company.
When Frederick Stevens first started moving families and their belongings using one horse and a flat-bed wagon in 1905 in Saginaw, Mich., he likely never would have envisioned the nationwide footprint and hundreds of moving vans the company has today.
With a vision, hard work and a gentleman's promise to treat customers fairly, Frederick Stevens built what some may call an American dream -- a company that has endured the test of time. Generations of Stevens' descendents have grown and expanded the company, but maintained its headquarters in the same middle-American city where it began.
Stories like Stevens' are not unique, but they are largely American -- thanks in great part to the freedoms we enjoy as Americans and the work and passion of our forefathers.
Throughout this July 4th holiday, amid the barbecues, festivities and fireworks, remember the privileges we have as Americans and living in the "home of the free."
