CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA, March 02, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — College HUNKS Hauling Junk and Moving®, an award-winning company and industry leader in stress-free solutions for moving and junk-hauling needs, is under new ownership in Charlottesville, VA. The latest College HUNKS celebrated its new ownership with a grand re-opening on March 1 and provides the greater Charlottesville area with the company’s signature fast, friendly, and professional moving and junk hauling services.

Franchise owners Cole and Shannon Lokey will lead the Charlottesville College HUNKS team in serving the city’s neighboring areas with helpful, high-quality moving and junk removal solutions. Prior to joining College HUNKS, Cole Lokey worked in sales at Rosetta Stone for four years. He was also previously a Purchasing & Logistics Coordinator for a refrigeration company.

“Owning a business has always been something I wanted to do. When my wife and I had our son, I decided that it was time to take the leap of faith into business ownership,” said Cole Lokey, Co-owner of the Charlottesville College HUNKS. “Funny enough, when I first came across College HUNKS, I couldn’t see myself getting into the moving industry. After meeting the team and learning more about the company and what they were about, I quickly changed my mind. Their core values really resonated with me and my personal values. I also loved the team environment and inclusion that they present on a daily basis. It truly felt like one big family, which I think is very hard to come by these days.”

College HUNKS serves customers throughout North America by offering fast, flexible and dependable moving and junk removal services, as well as donation pickups and general labor assistance. The Charlottesville College HUNKS is located at 1020 Linden Ave., Charlottesville, VA 22902 and offers their best-in-class services to Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Staunton, Monticello Lake, Waynesboro, and the surrounding areas.

“We are excited to continue our momentum across the country and to continue to provide the Charlottesville area with our signature services,” said Nick Friedman, Co-Founder and Visionary of College HUNKS. “Cole and Shannon join a strong network of like-minded individuals who are dedicated to providing excellent service to each client in a fun, enthusiastic team environment. It’s thanks to our franchise partners that we are able to bring our quality brand to more communities and support individuals and businesses with their moving and hauling needs.”

College HUNKS is also a purpose-driven company that is dedicated to being a part of the community. The Charlottesville location plans to support the key causes of College HUNKS, including supporting victims of domestic violence, and other localized charitable organizations.

“We hope to have a positive impact and make a difference in all the communities that we serve,” said Shannon Lokey, Co-owner of the Charlottesville College HUNKS. “We’re also looking forward to helping build future leaders in our communities.”
