Old Dominion Freight Line Launches OD Household ServicesSelf-Moving Service Available to Consumers across the United States
THOMASVILLE, North Carolina (Jan. 23, 2012) - Consumers looking to pack themselves, but who want someone else to do the driving, have a new option: OD Household Services.
The new service, launched today by Old Dominion Freight Line, is a cost-effective alternative to traditional and do-it-yourself moving services, as consumers only pay for the truck space that they use.
"We understand it's not just someone's belongings in the back of a truck-it's their life," said Marty Freeman, senior vice president of sales and national accounts at Old Dominion Freight Line. "Our company's more than 75 years of shipping expertise and solid track record as a leader in the transportation industry makes OD Household Services the perfect moving partner."
With OD Household Services, Old Dominion delivers the trailer, allowing consumers to pack and load their own belongings. Old Dominion then picks up the trailer and delivers it to the consumer's new address-whether across town or cross-country.
This is the first consumer-focused service that Old Dominion, a shipping and transportation company based in Thomasville, N.C., has launched. In addition to OD Household Services, Old Dominion offers domestic less-than-truckload, global, logistical and drayage shipping services to points in North America, Central America, South America and the Far East.
