Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: In 2001, Andy Clark founded Alliance Moving Systems, which is affiliated with Allied Van Lines. In June of 2007, the company moved into its current 15,000 square foot warehouse, located near the airport in Gypsum. The business was expanded in 2015 to include record storage in the warehouse. Soon after, the shredding truck was purchased, and the shredding service was added.

What is the most humorous thing that has happened at your business since you opened? A shipment from another warehouse came in one time that had a big pack rat hidden in it. The employees chased the pack rat around in the trailer, all the while hollering and yelling and waving their brooms. The pack rat was finally corralled and let loose into the mountains behind the warehouse. It was hilarious!
