It was 1948 when a young boy helped his father move a pot belly stove and some other items of furniture from NYC to Peekskill, NY with a 14′ truck. Unbeknownst to them at the time, it would be the first recorded moving job in over 50 years in the Moving Industry. The young boy depicted in the above excerpt is Ben DeVivo, present owner and founder of Enterprise Van Lines. As part of a large family of Italian immigrants, and the youngest of 11 children. life was anything but easy for Ben. With the death of his mother at age 11, he learned to grow up very quickly, especially when immigrating to the USA where Ben and his two eldest sisters settled in New York in the winter of 1948. They would join their father already here, to work and pave the way for their family. So began the history of the DeVivo family and the Moving & Storage Industry.
