About us

History

Choice Relocation Group is a multi-million-dollar transportation conglomerate consisting of Beltway Movers, A2B Moving and Storage, Fairfax Transfer and Storage, and Ace Moving and Storage.

Choice Relocation Group is headquartered in Alexandria Virginia (A suburb of Washington D.C.). While each brand operates independently and maintains its own Sales, Operations, and Delivery personnel, other resources are combined to optimize production capacity and provide our customers with the advantages of a much larger corporation.

Our vision is to offer the best of both worlds. The one-on-one relationships and customer service of a smaller local company, with the major resources and production power of a larger national corporation.

Upper managerial functions such as Finance, Human Resources, and Marketing are located there to better serve its agents and customers by providing centralized support functions, products, and services, purchasing power, information networks and other benefits.

For over six decades, the people who work for Choice Relocation Group subsidiaries have provided professional, knowledgeable, and courteous relocation and storage services. This legacy continues today as the company strives to remain an industry leader and provide innovative solutions to our customer’s moving, storage, delivery and logistics needs.

Glen Childs is the President and CEO of Choice Relocation Group.
