Our History

Brooks Furniture Xpress, originally Brooks Transportation, was started in 1999 by Anthony and Cindy Brooks. Upon graduating from Appalachian State University, Anthony went to work in the trucking industry. He began as an owner-operator driving for various furniture carriers. He then advanced into working on the business side in operations doing dispatch, driver paperwork, warehousing and load coordination. Once he gained all the knowledge he could from various companies, he opened his first company in 1999, specializing in furniture delivery. In 2008 during the recession, the company converted to a truckload carrier. Then in 2011, the opportunity presented to enter the furniture industry again. The company’s name changed to Brooks Furniture Xpress, Inc. and has operated as a specialized furniture carrier since. BFX has expanded their business from servicing one state to delivering to 38 states over a 12-year span. Cindy, also graduated from ASU with a background in child development and is a registered nurse. While she helped with the company's start up in 1999, she joined the family business full time in 2011.

Together they have focused on the needs of a growing company while keeping the business focused on family, customers, and service. With over 50 years combined experience in the trucking industry, Anthony and Cindy know that the customers and employees are the foundation of their business.

That is why they continue to look for ways provide the highest service and best technology to their customers, even down to still answering the phone personally instead of using an automated system. The goal is to make their customers, drivers and office staff feel like family. We feel we can say, with confidence, that you cannot find a better company to serve you in your delivery needs. BFX looks forward to building strong partnerships with our future customers.
