Meet Eric Snell of Armor Moving & Storage System in Culver City

Today we’d like to introduce you to Eric Snell.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Eric. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
When my father Mike was in his twenties, he was working for a large moving company in LA. After a few years working for someone else, he thought to himself, he could do this better! He opened up Armor Moving with a 16ft truck and had one employee. The following year, he purchased his second truck, a 24-footer. Over the years, the company has continually expanded. Our warehouse space continues to grow, as we purchase new commercial buildings and since 1979 when my father first opened for business we have purchased 11 trucks. I began working for my father at the age of 20 and have been with the company for 14 years. As we both grow older many of the day to day tasks begin to shift towards my plate, but we have a great working relationship and we both enjoy coming to work. We try to have fun and many of our employees have been with us so long they are like family.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It hasn’t always been a smooth ride. To grow a successful company involves a lot of long hours, sometimes even seven days a week. In our line of work, back breaking is also synonymous.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
We are a full-service family owned operated moving and storage company for the last 39 years.

We are known for being honest, reliable and on time that takes pride in its work and the relationships we have built over the years. I’d say we are most proud of no longer having to advertise as we are constantly being referred by our customers. We have an A rating with the BBB, have many working relationships with realtors in the area and have won numerous moving awards by local papers etc. I would say my father having 45 years moving experience, and the fact that one of us always answering the phone is definitely something that sets us apart from the rest.

What were you like growing up?
My father was very athletic and competitive. Never liked to quit. I was very similar, loved being involved in everything and liked to do everything on my own or with little help as possible.
