Columbine Moving and Storage opened its doors in Aspen, CO in 1974 and since that time have expanded into Eagle and Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Patrick and Paige Pelton purchased Columbine in the summer of 2017 from Bill and Marilyn Ortmann and are excited about the opportunities that each day brings.
Patrick and Paige moved to Colorado from Houston, Texas to seek a new adventure, specifically one that enabled them to be able to serve the community in which they live. Both grew up supporting a family owned moving and storage company in Tyler, Texas, but after Patrick graduated from college, he started a new career in Accounting in Houston, Texas. Patrick is a Certified Public Accountant and has worked for Public Accounting Firms and for several large energy trading companies for almost twenty years. During this time, Patrick served in various senior leadership roles which enabled him to develop professionally as he gained the necessary skills to manage large organizations. Patrick and Paige knew a change was needed in their lives when they began looking at various business opportunities across the U.S., and both felt that the purchase of Columbine was the right time and the right opportunity, given the reputation of the company, the employees, and the community. The experience Patrick and Paige gained working for their family owned moving and storage company, and Patrick’s accounting experience has positioned them to help further the legacy of Columbine Moving & Storage that has been established by the Ortmann’s. The business philosophy of Columbine has been, and will always be to provide the best customer service, with honesty, integrity, and professionalism.
Columbine’s Eagle and Aspen locations have, on average, 18 full time employees who complete about 800-850 moves per year. With both warehouses in Aspen and Eagle, and as agents of Allied Van Lines, Columbine Moving and Storage meets the needs of customers across the Western Slope and throughout Colorado. We are very excited about what the future brings and look forward to serving you!
