Federal Companies Win Allied Special Product's Agent of the Year Award

EAST PEORIA, Ill., Oct. 13, 2004 -- Federal Companies, an agent for Allied Van Lines, Inc., was awarded Allied Special Products' Agent of the Year at the Allied Van Lines annual convention last week in Naples, Florida.

"This award demonstrates the success that Federal's Motorcycle Division has had the last few years in providing quality service to motorcycle enthusiasts throughout the country," stated Bill Cirone, President of the Federal Companies.

Federal's Motorcycle Division has shipped over 14,000 motorcycles over the past year and over 70,000 the past 10 years, for individuals who buy or sell on-line, or for individuals who want to ship their motorcycle for recreation purposes, such as Daytona or Sturgis.

Jackie Taylor, Manager of the Federal's Motorcycle division states, "A lot of customers do not have the time to ride across country to reach their touring destination. Federal/Allied allows them to ship their motorcycle across country in just a few days, so their bike is waiting for them when they arrive. This way they can enjoy their bike, not a rental, and still ride anywhere in the country."

Federal Companies, a 91 year old, fourth-generation company headquartered in East Peoria, Illinois, provides services in moving and relocation, warehousing and distribution, retail delivery and freight forwarding, and vital records storage and the transportation of motorcycles for leisure or road rallies. Federal Companies has facilities in Waukegan, Glendale Heights, Bloomington, Champaign, Decatur, Danville, Springfield, and Moline, Illinois.
