Herlihy Moving & Storage is proud of our long history as an authorized agent of Mayflower Transit, LLC –America’s Most Trusted Moving Company since 1927.
Mayflower Transit Co. got its start in Indianapolis, Ind. in 1927 as an alternative to railroads for customers who were interested in moving their belongings across the country on the expanding network of paved roads. The new enterprise became known for providing safe door-to-door pickup and delivery of household furnishings and other goods.
Just six years later, in 1933, Herlihy became an authorized agent for Mayflower Transit. Today, we have the distinction of being the oldest family owned and operated Mayflower agent in the country. With offices in Columbus, Chillicothe and Athens, Ohio, we provide moving services throughout central and southern Ohio.
As more businesses relocated and sought expert transportation services, Mayflower was there to move entire companies or transferred employees. In addition household goods, Mayflower’s business soon included employee relocations, office and industrial moves and transportation of trade show exhibits from city to city.
As business continued to expand beyond household goods shipping, Mayflower established a special fleet of van operators and vehicles to handle sensitive shipments such as complex computer systems, electronics and high-tech exhibits.
Today, Mayflower is the most recognized name in moving. It first earned that distinction in a national survey in 1961 and has earned that title each year since.
With an agency network of more than 271 locations, Mayflower joined UniGroup, Inc. in 1995, becoming part of the nation’s largest moving and storage services provider. Today, Mayflower Transit offers a full spectrum of moving services from full-service to do-it-yourself.
