It’s College Football season, and those of you in Arizona already know how much we love our state teams! Many of us at Dircks are proud alums of Arizona State University (Go Devils!), but we also tolerate our rivals from Tucson, the University of Arizona Wildcats. If you’re just moving to Arizona from out of state, you’ll QUICKLY learn all about how fans of these two schools love to hate each other … in a lovely, lovingly way, we assure you. As a new Arizona resident, you’ll have to choose a side, because that’s just the way it is. This weekend, our beloved Sun Devils will take on the Missouri Tigers on their home field and it should prove to be a fantastic test for both teams. We have every confidence that ASU will win, of course!
And not only are the folks at Dircks avid fans, we are also staunch supporters of the football program itself. Our Dircks Moving Services ASU Football truck and trailer moves all of the team’s equipment whenever it travels to away games, both in conference and beyond. Thanks to Arizona State Sun Devils and Arizona State University Sun Devils Football along with Steve Patterson for assisting with Dircks Moving Services’s story about the moving services we supply the team. We are the Official Mover of Sun Devil Athletics, and this story aired on Fox 10 – KSAZ-TV here in Phoenix this week. CLICK HERE to check it out!
Some FUN FACTS:
When the team moves for road games, it takes the equipment staff on hour to load the truck with close to 6,000 pounds of gear, including all helmets, pads, uniforms and drinks for the team, among other pieces of gear. This also includes at least two stationary bicycles for warm ups!
