Larry grew up in Boca Raton and eventually became a finishing carpenter in the San Francisco Bay area. In 1980 he returned to Florida where his parents lived when his father was diagnosed with cancer.

Following his father’s advice, Larry bought a 1964 step van, put a one-dollar ad in the newspaper and opened for business. “Since I was already familiar with the construction business, I started by moving kitchen cabinets to job sites,” he recalls.

He didn’t just deliver those cabinets; he unboxed and put them in place. “I enjoyed it because I missed doing carpentry work. My business grew rapidly after that from word-of-mouth alone,” he remembers.

Larry Parks had learned the most important ingredient for success in the moving business — personalized service. “It’s all about knowing what business you’re in,” he says.

I soon learned that I wasn’t in the moving business — I was in the business of transporting peoples’ most valuable possessions.”

Jake was raised around the moving business.  As a baby, one of his first toys was a fort made of a moving box that his father recalls he played around and crawled in for hours on end.  Once he was able to walk, he was running around the warehouse “wreaking havoc.” In his teenage years, he worked local and interstate drivers.  For vacations in the summer when school was out - the busiest time of the moving season since most families relocate when their children are on summer break - he would take road trips with his dad out of state and help load and unload trucks.

 

He noticed his father’s passion for servicing his clients and gravitated towards that.  After spending time away from the family business, studying audio engineering in Orlando, Jake eventually decided to return home and take on a bigger role in the family business.  From Jake’s first year back until today, the company has continued to grow due to his drive and focus to succeed. He is now Vice President and manages day-to-day business activities alongside his father, continuing to practice those same principles and values instilled in him from an early age.
