Working in the freight industry in Alaska, Gene Hundley recognized an opportunity. Due to the difficulty of moving people's personal possessions to Alaska, his employer and other freight companies were turning down opportunities to transport household goods to the then territory of Alaska.
In 1952, Gene established what is now known as Continental. Although headquartered in Seattle, its roots will always be tied to Alaska. From the early days of barge shipping to Seward, through the dramatic growth of Alaska during the oil pipeline construction, Continental blossomed to become a force in Alaska. That success created opportunities for growth in other markets.
After a tragic car accident, nearly costing Gene his life, his wife Katherine stepped into the role of operating the company. As a result, both Katherine and Gene played a huge part in the success of Continental Van Lines.
Continental has grown to a total of three offices, two in the Pacific Northwest and one in Alaska. Serving individual families, small companies, and huge corporations throughout the country, Continental still provides that personal touch to each and every move.
Second generation brother and sister, Greg and Ginnie Blaine, and a seasoned, professional team of managers now lead Continental into a very bright future.
Of course, having pioneered in Alaska household goods moving, it's not surprising that, today, Continental is recognized as a leader in the Alaskan moving market. With our Alaska Service Center in Anchorage, we can serve all of your Alaska moving needs.
