Meet the Joe Bonnie & Son Moving & Storage Team
Al Bonnie Sr. started our business in the early 1940’s in New York’s Flatbush Brooklyn. His son, Joseph Bonnie Sr., and the Second generation decided to relocate our family to South Florida in 1981. His son, Joe II, and sons-in-law, Jason and Lee, comprise the Third generation. They took the helm in the early 21st century, and the Fourth generation is starting to make its mark. Jim, Joe Sr.’s oldest grandson is a team leader and has been a mover since he was a young boy. Joey III, another grandson, is working in the warehouse on weekends and school breaks. As the younger family members continue to learn and grow in the company, they are mentored by their Grandfather, Joe Sr. who has been a mover since his preteens in the 1940’s and continues to work alongside our crews to this day.
Many of our customers ask why the company is named after the son when all the daughters are involved in the business. We joke a lot about this. The truth is, the company was established and branded before the girls joined in. Since 2000, Joe Sr.’s daughters, daughter-in-law and granddaughter have come on board. The women are responsible for different aspects of the business that range anywhere from sales and estimating, customer service and scheduling, to storage accounts and move management.
Some think the most detrimental force placed on a family business is the effect of the relationships within the family itself. While at work you don’t get to escape your family and when at home, you don’t get a break from your co-workers. We all take our work home with us so we are almost never “off the clock”. This is one reason most family businesses dissolve by the second generation. Joe Bonnie & Son has been an exception to this and we plan on keeping it that way for years to come.Get a FREE Quote
