“Every move is different. The Interstate team approaches every client from a place of help. We strive to find the best solution for that particular seller or buyer.”
When Arthur Morrissette founded Interstate Moving & Storage in 1943, he began with a single truck, a handful of furniture pads, and a dedication to service. Over the past 75-plus years, Interstate Moving & Storage has grown to become one of the D.C. area’s most renowned moving and storage companies. With over 200 employees and a fleet of over 300 vehicles, the Interstate team is as dedicated to service as they were when Arthur first launched the company. Respect, integrity, professionalism, value, and service are paramount.
“Interstate Moving & Storage is a full-service professional moving company that provides packing services, local and long-distance moving, international moving, and short-term and long-term storage at three locations: Springfield, VA; Sterling, VA; and Landover, MD,” Client Services Manager Sherry Skinner explains.
Sherry and the Interstate team understand how important their clients’ belongings are. That’s why they train all movers for 80 hours and packers for 40 hours prior to even sending them out on a job.
THE REAL ESTATE CONNECTION
“When referring a client, it is important to trust your referral partners and know that they care about helping both you and their clients,” Sherry continues.
Interstate Moving & Storage strives to create solutions for the current real estate market by creating unique programs to help real estate agents, sellers, and buyers. The Interstate team cares about helping its clients, and the company cares about its reputation in the community. Interstate supports hundreds of non-profits in the community with financial support, volunteering, and in-kind services. Some larger charitable projects have been for Wreaths Across America, The Salvation Army, and Children’s National Hospital.
MEET THE TEAM
Sherry Skinner, Client Services Manager
Sherry was a top-producing real estate agent in Central Florida for 15 years. Upon moving to Northern Virginia, she landed with Interstate Moving & Storage as a Move Consultant. She’s now been with Interstate for seven years.
Five years ago, Sherry transitioned to become the Client Services Manager. Her focus is on building relationships in the real estate industry. Sherry is usually the first person a real estate agent’s client speaks with at Interstate. “People have anxiety because of the moving process,” Sherry reflects. “I find the most satisfaction when a buyer or seller tells me that just by listening to their needs, answering their questions, and talking through the process, they feel calmer.”
Sherry lives in Arlington with her husband, Richard, and shelter kitty, Tallulah. They love new experiences, like traveling and trying new-to-them ethnic restaurants. Sherry also enjoys volunteering in the community. She serves as the co-chair of the NVAR Cares committee and is on the Board of Directors at PWAR as the Affiliate representative; she received the NVAR 2019 Affiliate of the Year Award and the DAAR 2020 Affiliate of the Year Award.
Erick Barr, Consumer Sales Manager
A Springfield native, Erick Barr took a summer job as a mover for Interstate while he was still attending West Virginia University. After graduation, he returned to Interstate and joined the Consumer Sales Department as a Move Consultant. Erick has worked at Interstate for 18 years; five years ago, he was promoted to Consumer Sales Manager. “I enjoy helping people transition to their next place in their life,” Erick says.
Erick lives in Springfield with his girlfriend, Lisa, two dogs, and two cats. He enjoys visiting the dog park, hosting neighborhood parties, and playing golf.
Mike Stine, Move Consultant
Mike Stine started working for Interstate in the 1970s, giving him over 40 years of experience in the industry. Mike has been applying his vast industry knowledge as a Certified Move Consultant for the last eight years. If you have a complicated move, Mike is your go-to resource. “I find it fulfilling to share my experience and knowledge to help people have a smooth relocation,” Mike explains.
Mike and his wife, Susan, live in Centreville. They have two sons who are both working in the moving industry, and a dog named Buddy. In his downtime, Mike enjoys woodworking.
Kim Woods, Move Consultant
“I love being a Move Consultant,” Kim Woods begins. Kim had over 20 years of sales experience before joining Interstate 11 years ago. In 2020, and multiple years prior, Kim received the Move Consultant of the Year award for being the top producer on the consumer sales team.
Kim Woods is fulfilled by helping people put their minds to ease during a hectic time. She lives in Alexandria with her husband, David, son, Kyle, and dog, Princess Ginger Petunia. Kim loves cooking for her family and friends, working in the yard, relaxing in the sun by the pool, getting pedicures, and volunteering.
Clinton Thompson, Move Consultant
Clinton Thompson joined the Interstate team in February 2020. While he began right before the COVID-19 pandemic took hold in the U.S., his prior experience in the moving industry allowed him to learn quickly and exceed expectations. “Well into his second year with Interstate, it seems like Clinton has always been a part of the team,” Sherry says.
Clinton enjoys calming clients who are stressed about the moving process. He lives in Upper Marlboro with his wife, Caryle. They have four children, and their first grandson just joined the family in the spring. Clinton enjoys vacationing, barbecuing for family and friends, and a night out for fine dining.
