"BACKLIGHT In 1937 most of Arlington County's businesses were of the service variety: grocery stores, laundries, etc. Entrepreneur Roderick Henderson Sr.'s business was sevice-driven, and then some. Henderson's got started on 1317 N. 19th St. in Rosslyn, in 1927, delivering ice and coal to Northwest Washington. There was also Henderson's Express and Transfer, which offered moving services and operated out of the same site, and if that wasn't enough there was a 40-foot counter where you could order a hot dog or a bowl of beans. When the Depression hit, Henderson was known to extend credit to customers he knew could not pay him back, yet he managed to keep on two three-man moving crews, even when there was nothing for them to do but sit at the counter and dream. Henderson's moved to South Arlington in the '60s,closing down everything save the moving business. Roderick Jr. has been running the company for nearly 30 years."
"I would like to thank Anthony and his team of moving experts who helped us relocate to our new home on Good Friday (March 29th, 2013).
Anthony came out to our house to give us an estimate, he arrived on time and gave an accurate estimate for the number of hours he thought it would take to move us.
The moving crew (Alex, Thomas, Robert and Steven) were friendly, polite, hard working and extremely efficient. They worked very well together, and were able to anticipate the others next moves. They moved our belongings with care, taking time to wrap our furniture with pads, and securing them with tape and cling film to ensure they stayed safe. They brought wardrobe boxes for our hanging clothes which they loaded and unloaded. The guys worked very hard and took minimal breaks. I would recommend Henderson's to anyone and everyone! They did a great job! I will certainly use them again!"
Sincerely, Sarah Tibbetts
"Rod & Anthony, My thanks to both of you for taking care with my move from Eisenhower Ave to Cameron Station in late December.I also appreciate your business ethic and professionalism. My best to you in 2005."

" I employed Henderson's Moving Service to move from Crystal City to Goodwin House West. I was well pleased with my selection. The moving crew was prompt, careful, helpful and expiedited the move efficiently and without unnecessary delay."
August 2004 - Kenneth Mackenthun
"I just wanted to ay how impressed I was with the services I received rom your company. It was the smoothest move I have ever had (and as a retired government employee I have moved several times). The men were careful with my furnitre and household goods."
"Dear Rod, We want to tell you how much we appreciate the wonderful job Henderson did for us on May 11 when we moved to front Royal. It is always a pleasure to work with you. We know we can depend on you completely.
Clarence, Chris and Thomas did a superb job. They worked so hard - and it was a very long, hot day for them. They were so helpful to us. They were such a pleasure! And, of couse, they were so professional. Everything arrived in great shape. Thank you for helping us make it through our move."
