That's the way that IBM used to ship mainframes out of their Kingston,
NY facility years ago.  Never seen so many United Van Lines trucks in
one place.

The divisions of moving companies that handle trade shows are usually
the same divisions that handle "high tech" moves.  I've used United
and Bekins, but in both cases that was so long ago that my positive
experience with them at the time doesn't count either way for present
