Established in 1939
Serving the Shenandoah Valley since 1939, my grandfather, George Heatwole, starting auctioneering by conducting Estate Auctions. In 1968, my father began performing auctions with George handling antiques and collectables. They opened their first auction house in the 1970’s in Dayton known as Triple H Auction Services. It’s owners were George Heatwole, Dick Heatwole & Harry Heatwole. As a youngster, I was involved in the auctions by holding up items to sell, moving boxes and furniture and going to houses to pickup and pack the items to bring to the auction house for sale. In 1981, my family bought the schoolhouse on Pleasant Hill Road known as Old School Auction. In 1987, I received my auctioneer’s license and worked part time auctioneering, setting up and displaying furniture, glass, household items and antiques. I worked in all facets of the auction industry. After holding a full time job doing construction work and working part time with Heatwole Auction Team, we eventually had enough business for me to become a full time auctioneer in 1991. After many years of loading antiques and household I decided to start the moving business known as Affordable Moving LLC.
