Moving with Carpenter Bros Moving & Storage

Carpenter Bros. Moving & Storage, Inc. was started in 1967 by Harry and Earl Carpenter. The brothers drove trucks for many years prior to acquiring their own business. The business is an offshoot of the famous C. Harry Carpenter trucking which dates back to the 1920’s. Carpenter Bros. specializes in local and long distance movement of household goods and short and long term storage of government and civilian owned household goods.
The company has experienced much growth over the years. The Watertown facilities were opened in 1986. While this division of the company performs in the same capacity as Carpenter Bros., the major portion of the business comes from the transportation office at Fort Drum NY and their affiliation with Arpin Van Lines.

Totally satisfactory service. They came to pack us up at the appointed time, moved quickly and efficiently, and were courteous to us as well as each other, as they moved through the house and gradually loaded up.
