LAWRENCE RELOCATION SERVICES
Overall Reviews Rating:
LTS now has an established freight department and an impressive fleet of equipment to cover all moving needs.
Weldon S. “Chip” Lawrence took over for his father in September 1992 as President. Since 1992 there has been significant growth in the freight division including the addition of a flatbed fleet and a load brokerage division. Today, we have become one of the largest regional truckload freight carriers on the East Coast.
In 1996 Lawrence Transportation built a new facility for the headquarters location and is located conveniently to I-81 in Botetourt County. The financial condition is exceptionally strong as evidenced by Dunn and Bradstreet rating of 3A1. At Lawrence, we continue to maintain our affiliation with United Van Lines and are regularly honored as one of its Top Producers and Top Hauling agents.
Lawrence Transportation Systems established an Employee Stock Ownership Plan “ESOP” in January 1998 and presently the company is 100% employee owned.
Today our household goods division has locations in Roanoke, Virginia; Waynesboro, Virginia and Greensboro, North Carolina. Lawrence has been a leader in the moving industry and was instrumental in the changes to simplify pricing for the consumer. Lawrence works diligently to be environmentally friendly by reducing packing material usage and recycling throughout our company.
Through over 80 years and 3 generations we are still proving ourselves as a leader in the relocation and transportation industries.
In 2000, Lawrence Transportation Systems acquired Rusco Window Company, a replacement window manufacturing company, which was relocated to our present Roanoke, VA location.
At the beginning of 2003, LTS became the “CASE Equipment” dealer for the entire commonwealth of Virginia under the name Lawrence Equipment. This division sells and services heavy equipment as well as having a large parts department.
We have locations in Roanoke, Waynesboro, Richmond and plans to expand into northern Virginia and the Tidewater area.
In 2006, we opened Lawrence AG Equipment. This division sells and services farm and agricultural equipment. We have locations in Roanoke and Dayton, Virginia.
Affordable Container Service (ACS), a waste container service company was acquired by Lawrence in January 2006. Containers are provided for construction, commercial and residential use.
Lawrence Truck and Equipment is the official operating name of our shop and truck service facilities. The shop has always provided services for our own equipment and our contract van operators.
Through the years, other businesses have come to us for assistance with fleet maintenance and today, our shop facilities are one of the most advanced in the area.
