Pedro Hermosillo: Self-Made Mover
"I’ve always tried to keep a smile on my face and work hard at anything that comes my way.”

SAN FRANCISCO − Like many business owners in the moving industry, Pedro Hermosillo started out small, delivering furniture to local craigslist customers out of his pickup truck. “It was just something I started doing on the side to make extra money—I would move a couch here and a mattress there when I wasn’t working my regular job as a day porter at a high-rise building,” he recounts. “As time went on, people started referring me to their friends, and pretty soon I was getting so many calls that I quit my job and purchased a bigger truck.”

Today, as owner of Pedro’s Moving Services, Inc., Pedro says one of his favorite parts of his job is receiving positive feedback from customers. “It’s music to my ears when I hear from a customer that we provided a great experience. Running a business can be challenging and at times overwhelming, but I get a lot of satisfaction from doing quality work that makes our customers happy.”

Born in Mexico, Pedro came to the United States at a young age and grew up in the Mission District of San Francisco. Still a resident of the City by the Bay (where he lives with his wife, Andrea, and their five children), he says he appreciates its open-minded atmosphere. “There aren’t many moving companies with a distinctly Latino name, which is something that might be perceived negatively in other areas of the country. Here in San Francisco, however, people don’t think twice about it, which speaks to the diversity of the population and the progressive mindset of the area.”

Outside of work, Pedro spends much of his time pursuing outdoor activities with his family. “We love being outdoors and take every opportunity to go camping, fishing or jet skiing at a nearby lake,” he affirms. Additionally, as a loyal fan of the San Francisco Giants, Pedro is a regular attendee at AT&T Park during baseball season.

In reference to a personal philosophy, Pedro says having a positive, hardworking attitude is the key to achieving success. “When I first came to the U.S., I learned pretty quickly that in order to succeed, I needed to have a strong work ethic and a good attitude. That’s why I’ve always tried to keep a smile on my face and work hard at anything that comes my way.”

When asked the first thing he’d do if he could retire tomorrow, Pedro says he’d take some time to relax and go fishing. “I’d also like to do some traveling. I haven’t seen much of the U.S., or even my home country of Mexico, so I’d definitely take the opportunity to do some exploring.”
