The Steinway Difference.

The most powerful thing that separates us from our competition is the genuine love we have for what we do and who we do it for.

Even on its best day, moving requires a lot of intricate work. It requires strategic planning, meticulous attention to detail and a heightened sense of urgency. But above all, it requires a special touch – a personalization and “handle with care” attitude that can sometimes get lost in businesses that lose sight of what matters: the people we’re serving.

Our Mission Statement.

We believe we have a personal responsibility to make people’s lives easier during the relocation process. Our mission is to be a great mover, a great employer, and a great friend.
