HomeDirect was established as an in-home delivery service in 1999 as a distinct product offering of The Bekins Company, a leading national moving company, in response to the rapid growth experienced by e-tailers, cataloguers, television shopping networks, traditional retailers and manufacturers selling direct to consumers.
We began with one simple focus: to transport large consumer goods as if they were being delivered to our home.
On December 13, 2005, HomeDirect was acquired by Transportation Resource Partners (TRP), a private equity firm and an affiliate of Penske Corporation. Today, HomeDirect is North America’s most innovative and customer-focused specialty transportation company.
At HomeDirect, decisions are made with our customers’ needs and expectations at the forefront. At the same time, we want to generate profits for our shareholders – and we do – but we do so by taking care of our customers, employees and local communities.
