National Van Lines recognizes Joe Bonnie & Son Moving & Storage with Above and Beyond Award
This year, National Van Lines recognizes moving agency Delray Beach, FL-based Joe Bonnie & Son Moving & Storage for that level of recognition with the National Van Lines Above & Beyond Award.

"My dad, Joe Sr., has set the bar high for how he wants things done," Bonnie said. "But it is a relaxed environment where people can feel comfortable and be able to perform."
