About Us

Founded in 1914

, About UsThe Murphy name has been connected with the moving and storage industry for over 100 years and our company is now being proudly run by the fourth generation. Years of pride in workmanship and experience have been passed from generation to generation. The first truck to move a family coast to coast from New York to California “Kisco to Frisco” was a member of the Murphy family. A lot has changed since the first generation started the business with a horse and cart and the family has seen many changes and kept up with the technology that comes along with each new generation.  

Our number one goal is complete customer satisfaction. The cornerstones of our business – integrity, professionalism and hard work – help us achieve this goal for each and every customer. Additionally, our years of experience in the moving and storage business have given us a keen understanding of what makes for a successful move, and we put this knowledge to use from the beginning of a job to its completion.

, About UsCustomer service is our #1 concern from your initial contact with our office staff throughout the moving process; packing, loading and delivery of your goods at your new home. Our employees receive rave reviews from all our customers. They are described as polite, hard-working, responsible, respectful, and a “real pleasure”. We are proud to have these men and women as part of our company.

So whether you need a dining room set moved into the garage while the floors are being refinished, or whether you are moving cross-country, give John C. Murphy Moving & Storage a call. No job is ever too big or too small. See what a difference a quality mover can make.
