Snyder brings Mayflower to Brookings

Brookings entrepreneur Robert Snyder moves customers with his 53-foot Mayflower moving van. The Pilot/Marjorie Woodfin
Brookings entrepreneur Robert Snyder, who has had more than 12 years experience in the moving business, took on the biggest rig of his life on Nov. 1 – a 53-foot Mayflower moving van.

“It can hold up to four households full of goods,” Snyder said as he showed off his newest equipment earlier this week.

Snyder is the Mayflower agent/local service administrator in Curry County, in association with Olsen and Fielding Moving Service.

Snyder is excited about being part of the Mayflower chain that has 700 trucks and 300 agents, and can move household goods of any size, worldwide.

Another plus to be part of the Mayflower fleet is the advantage of having available loads for the trip back, which wasn’t always possible when he was owner-manger-driver of his own Express Moving Co.

“Mayflower also provides a claims manager and a moving coordinator, and handles all customer service and billing,” Snyder explained.

 About his big new rig he said, “It’s longer, higher, and wider than anything I have driven before.” 

However, its size also means that, in many cases, because of narrow and unpaved streets in Curry County, he will often pick up household goods in a smaller truck and transfer the furniture and additional items to the big rig for cross country moves.

“The Mayflower truck is more difficult to drive here than on the freeways across country,” he explained.

With access to worldwide moving, Mayflower has a military contract with the U.S. Coast Guard and other military services.

“Basically, we do everything,” Snyder declared.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
