Mayflower Transit

Mayflower Transit, LLC is a moving company founded in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1927 by Conrad M. Gentry and Don F. Kenworthy. In March 1995, it was acquired by UniGroup, a $1.7 billion transportation and relocation services company with headquarters in suburban St. Louis, Missouri.[1] Mayflower-United is known for its robust network of independent contractors who service customers on a local level. Mayflower's Operations division and its Customer Service arm remain elusive and reminiscent of a shadow corporation.
