CONLON MOVING AND STORAGE
Overall Reviews Rating:
Founded in 1885 as F.E. Conlon Storage of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Conlon Moving & Storage began as a service that was used to transport household goods and pianos. However, if any item would fit in his horse-drawn wagon, John Conlon would move it.
Today Conlon Moving & Storage is a well-known and respected professional moving company that provides commercial, residential, storage and logistics services to clients all over the world. From local moves within Southeastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut to interstate and international moving services that span the entire globe, we have grown a lot in the past century or so.
Growth and Expansion
Beginning in 1935, the company received Interstate Commerce commission authority for nine states. In that very same year, Conlon became an agent for Grey Van Lines. Throughout the years, Conlon grew and expanded as a means of keeping up with the needs and demands of their customer base. In order to increase the level of services that they could provide, Conlon changed van line affiliation to American Red Ball in 1955.
Over time, the Rhode Island movers’ company grew and prospered and the name was eventually changed to Conlon Moving & Storage. Not only did the company earn a reputation as the area’s premier household goods company, but it’s name as a commercial mover was second to none. To this very day, Conlon enjoys an impeccable reputation as the largest commercial mover in the region.
Then in 1967, in an attempt to increase and improve service yet again, Conlon Moving & Storage became an agent for Global Van Lines. A tremendous surge in volume followed and with the new affiliation, Conlon broke ground for a new state-of-the-art warehouse on York Avenue in Pawtucket just two short years later. However, even with the brand new 12,000 square foot warehouse, they retained the original warehouse on Sterry Street in Pawtucket.
Evolving to Meet Demand
In 1984, the decision was made for Conlon Moving & Storage to become an agent for United Van Lines. This helped the company remain the area’s premier moving company, providing services to homeowners and businesses throughout the region. As one of the top moving companies in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts, Conlon Moving & Storage was able to continue to offer their customers the personalized attention that separated them from their competitors, now with the resources afforded to the nation’s largest van line.
The goal of Conlon Moving & Storage has always been to accommodate the customer’s ever increasing requests for additional services. In response to a demand for more warehouse storage and space, Conlon acquired an additional warehouse and office complex. A staggering 35,000 square foot complex in Seekonk, Massachusetts now gave the company three facilities within the Greater Metropolitan Providence area. In 2000, an additional 15,000 square foot distribution facility was added.
To support these new locations and increased consumer demand, Conlon Moving & Storage operates a fleet of state-of-the-art tractor trailers, straight trucks and specialty service vans. Having all of this premier equipment and assets available to serve the growing needs of residential and commercial clients makes it possible to offer more than 50,000 square feet of storage capability and a transportation system that even John Conlon would have envied.
Conlon Moving & Storage Today
Fostering John Conlon’s philosophy, Conlon Moving & Storage is now managed by the fourth generation of the Conlon family. Over 125 years of continuous service has been a rewarding experience and the company has now grown to be one of the most respected and professional Rhode Island, Connecticut and Southeastern Massachusetts residential movers and commercial business relocators in the entire region.
As new challenges and changes in the way that people require services arise, Conlon Moving & Storage will be poised and ready to continue providing the same level of service that their customers – both new and old – have grown to know and appreciate. A family of Rhode Island movers that got started with a horse-drawn wagon over a century ago has now grown into a professional moving company that continues to expand into all four corners of the globe and exceed expectations.
