In 1946, Russell Sam Paul, known by his many friends as “Sam”, started Colonial Van & Storage, Inc. Thought it began with one man and a flatbed truck with chicken-wire racks, Colonial quickly grew and became successful. In fact, by 1950 Sam had opened his Fresno location and added a few new trucks to his one truck fleet.
In 1970, Sam met Doug Walton and Doug soon became his bookkeeper. With someone tending to the books, Sam was able to expand even more, opening his Sacramento location in 1974. This Sacramento location soon became Colonial Van & Storage, Inc. Headquarters. By 1975, Doug became much more than the bookkeeper; Sam invited him to be a partner in the business, making Doug the co-owner of Colonial Van & Storage, Inc.
Over the next 20 years, Colonial Van & Storage, Inc. flourished, providing nationwide moving and storage services to the residents in their two locations. With the purchase of Bender Moving & Storage in 1994, Sam and Doug opened Colonial's third location in Reno/Sparks, Nevada.
