Yes, Dawn is connected with Giant. See this post by MusicMom - ... 5837#55837

In addition, this ad on indicates that Dawn Moving in Reiserstown (DOT #1321951) uses advertising written for In and Out Movers, another dubious company - ... oving.html

This is what I posted previously about the In and Out in Chicago, if that is the company whose advertising was copied:
In and Out Moving & Storage, Inc., in Chicago, IL, with MC #306319. The president is Ariel Hershkovich and the secretary is Avner Bosklla. FBI statistics show that the majority of scam moving companies indicted in the U.S. are operated by citizens of Israel. According to, the company says it has only 2 trucks and 4 drivers--far too few to do interstate moves--and its driver out of service record is much higher than the national average. - ... 5267#15267

I'll add this info to my summary post on Maryland (see link below).

Boy, they just can't come up with anything original, can they?

On the thread Diane linked to, where I originally posted about Dawn, I'm glad I copied and pasted their ad, since they have now corrected the mistake.

Dawn is a good company. Victor and Valentin are both good people. The only way they're connected to Giant is by being former employees. This is Chris Hayen, not Chuck. Anyone who knows the story between me and Giant Van Lines should know that I would never promote a company that was involved with Giant in any way whatsoever.

MusicMom, if you know me, then you know that I wouldn't help Gabe.

SkyWalker, I'm curious if you have anything on Dawn other than the owners being former Giant Employees. Chuck isn't even a part owner like you claim.

Sorry, Chris, until Dawn Moving has proven itself, ANY connection to Giant is a huge red flag. The company has already had its license revoked once in just over a year of business. And like I said earlier, I called the number in Dawn's ad, and found myself talking to Epic Relocations.
