It was 1914,during the heyday of Juneau s gold mining era, when Art McKinnon opened a transfer business. It was started with nothing but a wagon and two horses. He called it Reliable Transfer. Reliable started its business at 346 S. Franklin, moving to 141 S. Franklin in 1930, and 200 N. Franklin in 1950. Along with Reliable there were many other transfer companies including Alaska Transfer, Berry Transfer, General Transfer, Juneau Transfer, R & M Transfer, City Transfer, Femmer Transfer, Standard Transfer and Northern Transfer. In 1920, Reliable purchased its first truck, a Ford. In 1955 Elmer Lindstrom and Al Bloomquist bought Reliable from Art McKinnon. The "fleet" consisted of only four trucks. In 1957 Reliable Transfer bought out Femmer Transfer. Its fleet consisted of two Diamond T trucks. By purchasing Femmer, Reliable obtained the air mail and air freight contacts.In 1957 a guy by the name of Carl "Bud" Lindstrom bought into the company, taking Al Bloomquist’s place. Shortly after, in 1964, Reliable relocated again to 203 Admiral Way, and again in 1967 to 490 S. Franklin. It was around this time that a fellow by the name of Larry Leaf started with Reliable as a driver. Little did the company know of the great significance he would later be to them..
