Since 1985, Men On The Move has changed the Long Island Moving & Self-Storage industry. Read our story, and learn a little more about who we are and what we contribute to Long Island.
The beginning: After gaining his own experience in the moving industry, Men On The Move's Founder, John Beyer, placed his first ad in the Long Island Pennysaver in September of 1985. Ever since the first phone call, every customer has been expected to be treated with the highest level of integrity! It is an inherent mentality throughout our staff that: "the good job you do today creates the job you do tomorrow." This culture is the reason that over 70% of our work comes from repeat and referral business!
On the move: Thanks to the award-winning service that our moving division has provided since day one, the moving company has grown year over year. The roster of customers grew to include celebrities, politicians, and government organizations but most importantly thousands of Long Island families! Our crews have always been trained to care for every customer as if they were their favorite movie star, and our reputation shows it!
People need storage: After moving many customers into warehouse and storage facilities, it was evident that Men On The Move needed it's own storage solutions! In 1991, Men On The Move acquired it's first warehouse space right on Jericho Turnpike in New Hyde Park. A few years later in 1998, they opened their first self-storage facility a few blocks away on Carnation Avenue in Floral Park! Both the warehouse and self-storage solutions were a hit with their customers, and lead to the continued growth of the storage division at Men On The Move!
Today: In December of 2018, Men On The Move relocated their headquarters from Floral Park to Woodbury! This new location includes brand new Class-A Self-Storage , Warehouse Storage, and is where they dispatch their fleet of moving trucks! In addition to their headquarters, Men On The Move recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation of their 150,000sf Farmingdale Self-Storage location, and is working on developing their 80,000sf Deer Park Self-Storage location as well! With the experience, the equipment, and the space to help you with all your moving and storage needs, it has never been more appropriate to say, "When you're ready to move, trust the Men!"
Socially Responsible Mission
Men On The Move aims to be Long Island's most impactful moving and self-storage company. While we have a meaningful impact on our customer's lives, we love to support our community and our local charities. As a company closely affected by autism, we understand the value of help where it's needed most.
Spectrum Designs Foundation: All of our employee's uniforms are made by Spectrum Designs. Our need for high quality and durable uniforms is met by this foundation, and it is furthered by their mission to provide meaningful employment to adults with autism. We couldn't be more thankful and impressed with their level of professionalism and success in helping the autism community.
Autism Speaks: All of our moving trucks proudly wear the Autism Speaks logo. Their goal of raising awareness and funds for research and aid is unmatched. Founded by Bob & Susan Wright in 2005, they have made a tremendous strides in research and awareness. One of their accomplishments include leading the Light It Up Blue campaign, where prominent buildings around the world are washed in blue lighting on April 2nd. We proudly take part in this event every year, and light up each of our locations in blue.
