Wayne Reiss, an owner/operator who hauls for O’Brien’s Moving and Storage, was recently named “Driver of the Year” by the Pennsylvania Moving and Storage Association.

Wayne showed an incredible drive to be successful early on in his career. Wayne got his start in the moving industry in April of 1986 working as a summer helper while attending West Chester State College. The following year Wayne drove his first truck where he then became a  truck driver for O’Brien’s during his summer break from school. That was unprecedented. The following year Wayne was elevated to a tractor trailer driver, doing local moves on weekends and over his summer break.

In 1989, Wayne graduated from West Chester State College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice.  On the day of graduation, he left to do an interstate move for Allied Van Lines. Cap and gown in the morning; highway in the afternoon! In 1991, Wayne became one of the youngest Committed Drivers in the Allied Fleet. In 1997, Wayne purchased his first tractor and became an owner/operator at the age of 28.

Additional accomplishments:

  • Driver of the Month for Allied Van Lines (August 2008 and July 2009)
  • Master Mover with Allied Van Lines (2002-2011). With a fleet of over 3000 drivers, the Master Mover status designates the Top Ten % in terms of quality and safety.
  • Had 1 accident in 2010; the only accident incurred in 26 years of commercial driving.


  • Hunting
  • Riding motorcycles – which he also rides for fundraising events that benefit cancer patients.

O’Brien’s Moving & Storage is extremely proud to have our name on Wayne Reiss’s truck.
