The History of Our Moving Company

The beginnings of Charles E. Groff Moving and Storage can be traced back to one hardworking man who began his career in 1949 working as a part time mover for a small, local moving company. In 1962, that employee - Charles E. Groff - took advantage of a unique opportunity to buy the small moving business from the retiring owner. Charles E. Groff Moving & Storage was born.

In the early days, Charles did all of the work himself and had no employees. His dedication to personal service, honesty and his love for people helped to grow the business and support his wife and 4 children.

In 1984, Charles Groff formed a partnership with his 3 sons Will and Terry and changed the business name to Charles E. Groff & Sons Moving and Storage. The business consisted of a handful of employees and just 2 trucks. The sons dedicated themselves to growing the business and expanding their moving operations.

The brothers continued to work together until their father retired in 1990. Then in 1993, Terry Groff decided to leave the business to pursue other interests. The remaining brother, Will, incorporated the company, naming Will as President.

In 2008, Charles E. Groff & Sons Moving and Storage had grown from 5 employees and 2 trucks to 35 employees and 57 pieces of moving equipment for a variety of jobs. The brothers had also added a storage facility to their list of services and opened their repair shop, that handled their fleet maintenance, to the public. Leslie Brosius purchased Charles E. Groff & Sons Moving and Storage later that year and continues to expand the business to this day, aided by Will Groff who remains a consultant to the company.
