About Us

About Murphy Moving & Storage

Our Moving Services Are Backed by 100+ Years of Experience

The 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 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.

Dedicated to Customer Satisfaction for Over a Century

Customer service is our #1 concern from your initial contact with our office staff throughout the moving process, including 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.
