Broadview, IL Nov. 5, 2018—National Van Lines and Johnnie T. Melia Moving & Storage have signed a seven-year contract that builds on a productive and profitable decade-long interstate-moving alliance.
The pact further solidifies National Van Lines’ Houston, TX marketplace presence, where the organization offers three relocation agents to consumers seeking to move across the country.
