Professional Moving and Secure Storage Since 1951

Our Team

JD Hall

President

JD Hall began his career in the moving industry as a Moving Consultant with Hill’s United Van Service – Gainesville in 1984. In 1990, JD left Hill’s United to begin a career in law enforcement with the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office as a Deputy Sheriff. Family ties proved too deep when his father in law, Mike Hill, asked him to return and assist with the Mayflower side of the business in 1992. He and his wife Mary Hill-Hall purchased the Mayflower agency in 1997, which became Hill’s Van Service of Marion Co. In 1998, JD and Mary moved the business to the original building founded by her grandfather in 1951. JD and Mary are proud to be a member of the Mayflower Transit family and look forward to letting their family assist your family with all of your moving and storage needs.

Company History

Tri County Records Management Center, Inc., D/B/A Hill’s Van Service of Marion County, traces its roots back to 1951, when the grandfather of one of its owners founded Hill’s Mayflower and Hill’s United Van Lines.

Over the years, the Hill family continued its tradition of moving families and businesses locally, nationally and internationally. The founder retired and two sons took over the agencies, one with Mayflower, and one with United Van Lines.

In 1997, the founder’s granddaughter, Mary Hall and her husband, James, purchased the Mayflower agency from her father. They have a combined experience of more than 50 years in the moving and storage business. Hill’s Van Service of Marion County is proud to be a part of the Mayflower family, who has led the moving industry with such milestones as being the first carrier to receive 48-state operating authority, and as being the first carrier to install air-ride suspension in its van fleet.

Embracing new technology to improve our service offerings is important to both Mayflower and Hill’s Van Service. That is why the van line has introduced Precise Track, a bar-code based estimating system which provides quick and accurate shipment information.

Over the years, Hill’s Van Service of Marion County has handled thousands of moves. It is this wealth of experience that we will continue to apply in refining our level of service quality for you- our customer.
