Florida Moving Systems has been in Brevard since 1988. They’ve moved themselves a couple of times as they’ve grown, and now operate out of specially designed 40,000-square-foot facility on North Drive in Melbourne. They built this facility with a purpose, and it has paid off with regular national recognition. Florida Moving Systems has been identified as North American Van Line’s #1 rated carrier! They can move you small, they can move you big, local or international; this your one-call resource for getting anything anywhere safely and efficiently. 

There is much more to Florida Moving Systems than their name implies though. This is a highly capable and experienced full-service agency. Besides full service household goods relocation, they are one of Florida’s largest logistic movers, handling over 20,000 shipments annually. As an agent for Specialized Transportation Inc., all of their employees are specially trained in all aspects of today’s ever changing transportation industry. This training, along with the daily handling of logistic goods, high value products, trade shows, store fixtures as well as entire office relocations and distribution programs, gives Florida Moving Systems the experience and capability to handle all of your transportation needs.

Florida Moving Systems offers a fleet of 48’ and 53’ air-ride lift gate trailers, climate controlled trailers, flatbed trailers and a full complement of moving equipment to facilitate the transportation of your specialized shipments, truckload, uncrated and crated products. You’ll not meet a group more experienced and capable of completing your project on time and efficiently than owner/operators Dave Astolfi, Claudia Deneen, and their staff. Eighty percent of Florida Moving System’s staff have been with the company for over 10 years, and a few over 20!

There’s a another story here though. And it is one that we all love to hear, they love to tell, and it reinforces the heart of Florida Moving Systems, from the front office to the loading docks to the drivers.

Meet The Phinizy Family.

Billy and Lauren Phinizy live in Kendall, Florida with their two young children, Benjamin and Grace. Billy was deployed to Afghanistan from 2009-2010, and upon his return spent several months in an inpatient facility for severe PTSD. At that time, they discovered he’d also suffered a traumatic brain injury. This resulted in his immediate medical retirement and being classified as 100 percent permanently and totally disabled by the VA. 

Enter Lifetime Television’s Military Makeover, a typical home makeover show with a military twist. From the producers of the award-winning home decorating and remodeling show, Designing Spaces, Military Makeover enlists the help of decorators, designers, landscapers and other home renovation experts, including movers. The host, retired United States Marine Corps Staff Sergeant R. Lee “The Gunny” Ermey , helps transform the homes – and the lives – of military families in need from across the country. In this case, the Phinizy’s entire house of belongings needed to be moved out of the house, stored, and then put back after their renovation was completed. Florida Moving Systems was chosen for this honor based on their #1 national ranking, and their extremely high customer satisfaction ratings in moving our military.

When SpaceCoast Living interviewed Dave (also a veteran) and Claudia, they were more interested in talking about the honor of being selected for this special project, not because it was on television, but because it helped a veteran who’d served to keep our country and their families safe. Sometimes, the best a company can do is to just do the right thing. The Gunny would certainly reply with a resounding “Oorah!”
