Fred and Ann Schell got into this business nine years ago and have been at their present location for four years. They both have different business backgrounds. Fred previously worked for a finance company in Mohawk and Ann was employed in the claims department of an insurance company. They take great pride in their facility and equipment, which are immaculately maintained.
Over the years, Better Homes and Transport has grown into a successful business with satisfied customers throughout upstate New York. When people purchase the home they want, a crew from Better Homes and Transport brings the home to the sight and does all the work. When it’s done, all the customers have to do is to move in.
Fred said, “Our low overhead and personalized service means lower prices and satisfied customers.” At any given time, customers can pick from one of a dozen display models. They can also bring in a favorite floor plan or let the staff help them custom design a one of a kind home made just for them.
Fred said, “We build single wide homes from 550 square feet to over 1,160 square feet. We build double wide homes from 640 to over 2,300 square feet, and modular homes to any size.”
They also have a wide array of used and repossessed homes that owners can either fix themselves or have refurbished.
