joins The Housing Hour this week to discuss the 130 year anniversary of Gouffon Moving and Storage. Gouffon’s humble beginnings started in downtown Knoxville in the late 1800’s, hauling supplies from the railroad depots to surrounding business. Gouffon is one of Knoxville’s oldest continuous businesses and possibly one of the oldest moving companies in America.
Eddy’s sales experience can be traced to one of the countries first premiere TV shopping networks-Shop At Home -where he teamed up with mega personality, Don West, to sell sports memorabilia resulting in explosive, entertaining segments. So entertaining, Lorne Michaels with Saturday Night Live, a follower of the TV sales segement, found Don and Eddy so funny, he decided to include them as a skit on SNL with actors Will Ferrell (playing Don West) and Chris Kattan (Playing Eddy Lewis). (See videos below)
Times and equipment may have changed, but the Gouffon Moving & Storage Co. tradition of quality moving and storage has remained the same for 130 years.
