We take what we do very seriously --whether were moving a runners gear, a family's home or a priceless museum exhibit

Once again, the moving company, Barrett Moving & Storage had a strong finish at the 2010 Twin Cities Marathon. Like it has done almost every year since the marathon began in 1982, Barrett's convoy, transporting approximately 10,000 marathon and 10k runners gear, finished first to ensure that each of the race participants had their possessions waiting for them at the finish line.

"This is a thrilling community event and were so proud to be a part of it," said Randy Koepsell, president of Barrett Moving & Storage. "The sense of camaraderie among the runners and the thousands of people who come to cheer them on is what makes this Twin Cities in Motion event such a huge success. "

Koepsell explained that Barrett has volunteered its trucks and services for 27 of the marathons 28 year history. And, while its a logistical challenge to make sure that each of the thousands of runners gets their respective bags, in the 27 years that Barrett volunteers having been doing this, Koepsell doesn't recall an incident where a racers bag has been misplaced or damaged. "We take what we do very seriously --whether were moving a runners gear, a family's home or a priceless museum exhibit," he said.

He was quick to add that none of Barrett's drivers has ever been beaten to the finish line.
