About Us



Herlihy Moving & Storage has been moving Ohio families and businesses for almost as long as trucks have been on the road. Established in 1920 by John Herlihy, Sr., we’re a third-generation family business with deep roots in Chillicothe, Columbus, and Athens, Ohio.

Herlihy became an authorized agent for Mayflower Transit in 1933 – just six years after Mayflower became the nation’s first Interstate Commerce Commission carrier. Today, we have the distinction of being the oldest family owned and operated Mayflower agent in the country.

Currently under the leadership of the founder’s grandsons, President Joe Herlihy and Vice President James Herlihy, the company remains committed to providing 100 percent customer satisfaction with each move. Whether you’re moving residentially, undergoing a corporate relocation, need to move your office or wish to keep your items in storage, our family is here to take the stress out of the process.




As one of Ohio’s oldest moving companies, we have moved thousands of Ohio families and businesses around Ohio, across the United States, and around the world. Our attention to detail and customer satisfaction has earned the trust of many repeat and referral customers. Here are just a few of the reasons to choose Herlihy for your next move:

  • Family owned and operated Since 1920.
  • Convenient locations in Athens, Chillicothe and Columbus, Ohio.
  • Trained moving professionals handle every step of your move.
  • We use only up-to-date, well-maintained trucks and equipment, including air-ride-equipped trailers.
  • As an agent for Mayflower and UniGroup Worldwide, we can expedite moves anywhere in the world.
  • We offer expert packing services by trained professionals.
  • No move is too big or too small: call on us for full-service to do-it-yourself moving and storage services.

As a family-owned business, we consider customers part of our family. We handle your belongings as carefully as if they belonged to a Herlihy family member. Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction for each move. Since 1920, our company has grown through satisfied, repeat customers and referrals. Thanks to your support, we’ve become one of Ohio’s top moving companies. Now in our third generation of family management, our family is here to move your family today and in the years to come.
