MOORESTOWN, N.J. – (July 20, 2016) – Since 1969, Anchor Moving & Storage has been conducting residential and commercial moves throughout the tri-state area, including New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. Today, the full-service moving company adds to its legacy by joining leading mover Atlas Van Lines and its expansive agency network. As an Atlas agent, the company will continue to serve the aforementioned areas with its moving (commercial and residential) and storage (long-term and short-term) services.
"Atlas Van Lines is truly a leader in the industry and we are honored to begin working alongside this world-class van line," said Mike Jenkins, president of Anchor Moving & Storage. “We are thrilled to join such a reputable network and have the opportunity to provide the level of quality that is synonymous with Atlas Van Lines.”
Jenkins purchased Anchor Moving & Storage in 2010 from the original owners who founded the company in 1969. In just six years, the company has increased sales by 400 percent. Anchor Moving & Storage currently employs more than 40 employees and was recognized by Inc. Magazine as the 64th fastest growing logistics company in the nation. In addition to its continued growth, the company prides itself on being a family-owned business that provides both exceptional local service and national long-distance moving capabilities.
This past year, Anchor Moving & Storage had the responsibility and privilege of moving the former home of President George Washington. The project included packing, hoisting antiques, crating artwork, and storing President Washington’s antiques, valued at over $2 million. The company stored the artifacts for 14 months while the Dey Mansion, located in New Jersey, was being renovated. In February 2016, the Anchor Moving & Storage team successfully delivered the goods from storage and set up the artifacts.
“Atlas Van Lines is excited to welcome Anchor Moving & Storage to our agency family,” said Steve Hermann, vice president of agency development at Atlas Van Lines. “The company has a long-standing reputation for superior customer service and professionalism for both residential moves and corporate relocations, and is a perfect fit for our agency network.”
Consisting of nearly 500 interstate agents across the United States and Canada, the Atlas Van Lines agency network facilitates approximately 80,000 household moves worldwide each year.
