Movers handle T-Rex, other unusual items

VAIL, Colo., Nov. 26 (UPI) -- The owners of a Colorado moving company said they have found a niche by handling "the specialty stuff that no one else wants to touch."

Steve Moch, owner of White Horse Solutions in Gypsum, said the company's clients have called on them to move items including a Tyrannosaurus Rex skull and a 1,500-pound slab of petrified redwood, the Eagle Valley Enterprise, Vail, Colo., reported Friday.

"We handle the specialty stuff that no one else wants to touch," Moch said.

"Whatever it is, we find a way to get it where it needs to go. I've had 4,000-pound safes dangling over Vail Village and I've loaded things onto private jets," Moch said. "We are the logistics guys who figure out how to package and ship."

Moch, who said he has relied on word-of-mouth advertising since opening his business 11 years ago, said a good chunk of his business comes from local interior designers, who often call on White Horse to deliver and set up their furniture.

"The designers often prefer to use movers they know they can trust," Moch said.
