Schultz Bros. began as Lee Bros. back in 1907 and signed on as a Bekins agent in 1917. By 1918, motorized trucks had replaced the old horse-drawn van. Over the next 26 years, Lee Bros. Van & Storage flourished, constantly adding to their sophisticated equipment available.
When covered moving vans became available, Lee Bros. was among the first to have them in their fleet. In 1933, George Sr. and Carl Schultz bought the Lee Bros. business, becoming Schultz Brothers Van and Storage. Throughout the next 60 years, the Schultz family was involved in the everyday operations of the business.
In 1993 with George Schultz Jr. and Jerry Poznanovich’s retirement, Randall Richmond and Vidal Serna purchased the business. Randall and Vidal worked together in Houston, Texas, with Randy managing the Houston Bekins agent and Vidal in charge of all warehouse operations as well as supervising corporate moving jobs.
