Bekins named official mover of the Chicago White Sox

February 4, 2011 – Hillside, Ill – It’s the middle of winter but baseball fans are counting down the days until the season opener. When the Chicago White Sox head west to Glendale, Ariz. for spring training, all their equipment, as well as a few comforts of home, will be leaving U.S. Cellular Field carefully packed inside a Bekins Van Lines tractor-trailer. The truck takes off from U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago today, February 4, with an anticipated departure at 2 p.m. Central time. 

Bekins has been named the Official Mover of the Chicago White Sox for the next five years and will transport the team’s equipment to and from their spring training home in Glendale as part of the program. The Bekins name has been associated with transporting White Sox equipment for the past five years, but this new agreement is the first time the two organizations have created an official partnership. The new relationship brings together two organizations rich in history, each celebrating a milestone anniversary in 2011 of their founding: the White Sox 110 years, and Bekins 120 years. 

“We are thrilled to team up with Bekins Van Lines,” said Brooks Boyer, White Sox chief marketing officer.  “They already have a track record of providing our organization with quality service and we look forward to working with them for another five years as we make this partnership official.”

 “We’re proud to take our existing relationship with the Chicago White Sox to the next level and to be named as their official mover,” said Greg L. Hoover, chairman and CEO of Bekins Van Lines.  “Both Bekins and the White Sox represent successful and longstanding Chicago histories, so this is a great fit and opportunity for our company.”
