Moving the First Family


They say it was just like any other job, but not every moving company gets the opportunity to relocate America’s first family to Kalorama, an exclusive neighborhood in Washington D.C. reserved for the city’s elite.

On Inauguration Day, Collins Brothers Moving Corporation (0547) PVO Mike Sherwood and crew watched the spectacle unfold while moving boxes and furniture into the home of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the president’s daughter and her husband, who is a senior advisor to the White House.

“It was a pretty standard move, but it was unique to be there the day Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States just 13 minutes down the road," says Mike.

The move was also featured in the New York Times, who called Kalorama “a neighborhood where the Obamas and Trumps are just part of the mix.” Former President Obama and his family own a home around the corner. Other famous residents, both former and current, include Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, late U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

“It’s a peaceful area where having a former president or an ex-cabinet member live next door is no big deal,” added Mike. “Ms. Trump’s designers were very easy to work with and they built her a kid friendly, family focused home. While our team did not meet the family, everyone commented that they are very nice.”
