Long-distance Mover No Landlubber

Broadview, IL Oct. 9, 2019— When aquatic artist/environmentalist Robert Wyland arrived to restore Cleveland’s faded Whaling Wall mural, long-time ally National Van Lines was on hand—or is it fin?—lending support.

Teaming up to touch up “Song of the Whales,” the artist and local community supporters knew they could count on interstate-mover Berea Moving & Storage to bring along their big truck and even-bigger enthusiasm. (National Van Lines proudly counts Cleveland mover Berea as one of our coast-to-coast, long-distance moving agents.)

“National Van Lines is glad to support Wyland’s efforts to raise eco-awareness,” said Wyland fan and National Van Lines CEO & Chairman Maureen Beal. “Not only is his work gorgeous, it’s indispensable for getting the word out in our environmentally challenged world.”

What’s a land-locked, tractor-trailer-reliant moving organization such as National Van Lines doing dedicating itself to supporting the world’s oceans? Simple: It’s the right thing to do.

National Van Lines receives a special thank-you from the Wyland Foundation.


National Van Lines has teamed with Wyland since 1992, displaying his creations wherever it can: online, on the corporate-HQ walls or on the road. By showing off his often-panoramic paintings on their panels, many of the company’s trailers are murals in and of themselves.

“This event was a high-water mark for us,” Beal said. “We’re glad National Van Lines could play a part in its success.”

The Cleveland restoration event occurred Oct. 3–5.
