KENT, WASH. – (December 9, 2015) — Since 1914, Lincoln Moving & Storage Co., Inc. has been conducting residential and commercial moves throughout Washington, California and New Mexico. Today, the full-service moving company adds to its legacy by joining leading mover Atlas Van Lines and its expansive agency network. As an Atlas agent, the company will continue to serve the aforementioned areas with its moving (commercial and residential) and storage (long-term and short-term) services.
“We firmly believe Atlas is the premier van line of the future, and we are honored to begin working alongside a company that leads the industry by example,” said Chris DiJulio, president of Lincoln Moving & Storage Co., Inc. “We are thrilled to join such a trusted and respected network, and we look forward to the growth opportunities Atlas will undoubtedly provide.”
With this strategic decision, Lincoln Moving & Storage Co., Inc.’s seven owned and operating moving agencies become agents of Atlas Van Lines. Those agencies include the following:
- Lincoln Moving & Storage, Inc. (Kent, Wash.)
- Lincoln Moving & Storage, Inc. (Tacoma, Wash.)
- Star Moving Systems (Tacoma, Wash.)

Lincoln Moving & Storage Co., Inc. has increased its footprint significantly over the last few decades with its acquisition of Star Moving Systems, Lompoc Van & Storage, Inc. and Vandenberg Van & Storage, Inc., which has allowed the moving company to continually diversify its service offering and customer base. It has also witnessed a recent spike in consumer residential, office and industrial relocations. Today, the company employs 230 employees across its agencies. It is also in the process of building a new, 45,000-square-foot warehouse in Everett, Washington with plans to open in the fall of 2016.
"We’re excited to welcome Lincoln Moving & Storage and its numerous agencies to the Atlas family," said Steve Hermann, vice president of agency development at Atlas Van Lines.
