Abraham Munn was that person who moved to the Central part of Florida in 1882. He acquired 80 acres of land and settled there. Munn’s land becomes a center of today’s Lakeland, but official name “Lakeland” the city got only in 1885. With the development of railway transport, the growth of Lakeland started, so far that it was the 3rd of the largest cities of Florida. Unfortunately, gradually, the economy of Lakeland began to wither and it lasted until 1970s, when a new life in the city was breathed.

I was very happy with the expeditious service. At the last minute i needed a moving company to move to Lakeland and they delivered and at a reasonable rate.
This is the second time I have used them to transport a vehicle purchased in Lakeland. I had my car within 2 days of the order. Well done!
Very happy with the communication with the driver from pick up to delivery! The price was good, the device was also very good. Only took three days from Texas to Lakeland. I would recommend them for your next car transportation....
Great customer service, prioritized my needs and made the move across the country easy-going. Will definitely use and recommend
They delivered my car as promised. I did have to upgrade and pay more for my car to be picked up on the days I wanted, because I had a limited window. Car delivered on estimated day and the transport company was professional and communicated well.
I would highly recommend them. They were professional and kept their delivery in Lakeland schedule as promised. They were in constant communication which is huge. I'd use them again!
