Exceeding Expectations Since 1944

10/25/2019 Merchants-1.jpegOn May 16, 2019, Merchants Moving & Storage, Inc. (1401) held an open house to celebrate their 75th business anniversary in Boise, Idaho. The Grove family has owned Merchants Moving & Storage for 45 years and joined the Atlas® Van Lines family a year later in 1975. They continue to be a local family owned and operated agent, proudly run by siblings Ron Jr., Brian, Vanessa, and Ron’s son, TJ.

Owners, Ron Sr. and Joan Grove have worked hard to establish a good reputation and adhere to the high quality standards Atlas sets in place. The open house served as an excellent opportunity for customers, friends, and family to enjoy Hawaiian style food and beverages, and also tour the facility. “It is always a privilege to showcase our company and our pride to be part of the Atlas Van Lines family,” said Ron Jr.
