Westborough – In 1979, Mark Silverman, then a student at Northeastern University, bought a used truck with his credit card and began to move furniture to earn money. That student venture turned into a business that’s been successful for nearly 40 years.
Now the president and chief executive officer of Mark’s Moving & Storage, Silverman oversees operations at its 90,000-square-foot corporate headquarters/warehouse located at 111 Milk St., in Westborough, and a fleet of more than 30 trucks and trailers.
Mark’s Moving offers a wide range of moving and storage services including:
- Local moving
- Long distance moving
- International moving
- Household moving
- Office moving
- Industrial moving
- Assisted living moving
- Fire and flood content rescue
- Furniture restoration
- Warehouse storage
- Portable storage
- Trailer storage
- Trash removal
- Furniture delivered to charity
- Lab moving
When residential customers need temporary storage, the company can provide on-site storage containers or storage in its warehouses. Both long-term and short-term storage options are available.
The company’s volume of long-distance moves continues to grow. Mark’s now has frequent trips to Florida and can arrange moves throughout the country and the world.
Although the company has grown over the past decades, it retains its commitment to personalized customer service for each and every client.
Many customers appreciate the ease of getting quotes by going to the company’s website. But Silverman knows that for many, moving can be a stressful and overwhelming time.
“Sometimes you just need someone to talk to, to help you determine the best plan,” he said. “Our customers can call us at 1-800-966-6275 – and talk to one of our representatives to get advice. We will even go to their house to give you a free estimate.”
“We are a resource, not a commodity,” he added. “We’re focused on helping people…. We help people by moving and storing their belongings safely, securely and with great care.”
Last year Mark’s Moving was named by Arpin Van Lines as a recipient of the 2017 Gold Quality Award in recognition of the company’s exceptional customer service.
Giving back to the community that has supported his company is also a priority for Silverman. Several years ago he founded Mark’s Northeastern Furniture Foundation which in conjunction with booked moves collects new and used furniture that customers no longer want and helps distribute it to families in need. Mark’s is the type of company that you want to do business with!
