A&Es popular, SELL THIS HOUSE, selected Massachusetts-based and family-run business Mercury Moving to assist during the filming of an episode in Brookline, MA. But, after producers saw how dynamic and photogenic the movers were, the crew ended up becoming part of the episode, which will air this Sunday, January 22 at 5pm, and then on rerun rotation.

Boston-based Mercury Moving & Storage Systems appears on A&E's hit TV show, SELL THIS HOUSE, this Sunday, January 22 at 5pm.

Hosted by Tanya Memme and Roger Hazard, A&E bills the show as "This Old House" meets "Candid Camera." The episode features the crash makeover of a Brookline home to become buyer-friendly. Seattle-based Screaming Flea Productions called Mercury to perform the heavy lifting and to provide storage.

"Being filmed while moving was definitely a new twist for us, but it was also a lot of fun!" says Garry Hennessy, President of Mercury Moving. Garry and his wife, Jessica, own and operate Mercury Moving & Storage Systems out of Avon.

"The producers called asking if we would like to be on the show," comments Jessica. "I said absolutely, we specialize in residential moves and have the best-looking crews in town!"

Garry and a friend from Wayland High School started Mercury Moving in 1997 using a modest pick-up truck and trailer. Since then, it has become the 24th largest Boston-area moving company, as reported in the 2006 Boston Business Journal Book of Lists.
