It all started with a vision: to offer a client-driven experience with meticulous attention paid to detail. American Moving & Installation, Inc. began in 2009 with 4 union employees and 1 truck as a fully-licensed and insured commercial union moving company.
Since then, Kathleen Rowell, Founder and CEO, has introduced innovative approaches to commercial moving operations. Initiatives she championed included: hand-selecting employees, developing comprehensive training programs, introducing leading-edge business processes and establishing a customer-driven culture. In an industry dominated by multi-generation competitors, Kathleen’s innovations began to set American apart from other companies.
Initially, American Moving focused on delivering high quality services to companies of modest size. As American’s resources grew and its capabilities were validated, Kathleen was able to attract increasingly larger companies as clients. Today, American serves companies of all sizes, from small businesses to Fortune 500 corporations in the Greater Boston Area.
In addition, the company has been awarded Statewide Contract FAC 96 and is certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) with the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) as well as the Supplier Diversity Office and is also certified as a Women Owned Small Business (WOSB) through the Small Business Administration (SBA). Furthermore, we are approved vendors with CBRE and Mass Gaming, members of IFMA, BOMA and MMA, and have been awarded the Gold Safety Award for 2 years in a row with Construct Secure. We were recognized by the Boston Business Journal as one of the largest moving and install companies in the area.
For each of our clients, we are committed to provide the best commercial moving and installation services in the market with a hand-selected, diverse workforce, a hands-on management team, a best practices agenda for all our moves, competitive pricing and an attitude for success.
We have provided our services to an impressive client base including Encore Boston Harbor, TD Garden, Bose, New Balance, Boston Children’s Hospital, MIT, Eaton Vance, BNY Mellon, Data Robot and EZ Cater. Our reliable services, extensively-trained professionals and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities have allowed us to retain 100% of our client base.
American Moving’s commitment to diversity has been a top priority since the company’s inception. This commitment is evident in American’s workforce, vendors, charitable endeavors, business relationships, and clients in a wide range of industries, from hospitality to workforce sharing, to high tech companies.
With 10 full-time office employees, a roster that includes 60 union movers and drivers and a fleet of vehicles, we are not only proud of our continued growth, but also proud to be one of the most successful union, commercial moving companies in the industry and the only certified 100% woman-owned moving and installation company in the state of Massachusetts.
