About Bailey's Moving & Storage

In 1952, nestled within the heart of the quiet town of Orem, Utah, Cliff (Jay) Bailey embarked on a venture that would eventually redefine the moving and storage industry. With nothing more than his garage for an office and a single pickup truck for transportation, Bailey's Moving & Storage was born. Bailey and his company laid the foundation for a company that would eventually grow to exemplify a legacy of reliability and growth within the Rocky Mountain region and beyond. This is the story of how the modest beginnings of a moving company in Utah grew to become a leading name in the moving and storage service industry.


Cliff Bailey Opens A Moving Company

Cliff (Jay) Bailey opened Provo Transfer & Storage. The operation kicked off in his garage and served the local community with moving and some distribution services. Bailey used his pickup truck as the moving company’s first piece of equipment. Soon after formation, the mover became an official Agent of Allied Van Lines.

Headquarters Location Change

Bailey’s Moving and Storage relocated its headquarters from State Street in Orem, Utah to North Salt Lake, Utah. This change signaled a continued trend in growth and expansion.
1970 - 1977

Ownership Change & Growth

Cliff Bailey sold Bailey’s Moving and Storage to a group of dedicated employees, ensuring that the company's legacy continued to thrive under passionate leadership. It was during this period that Bailey's Moving surpassed the $1,000,000 booking agent mark for the first time. This landmark served as a testament to the moving company’s growing reputation of excellence.
1977 - 1990

Time of Expansion

During the next few decades, Bailey's Moving and Storage acquired Warberg Moving and Storage in Twin Falls, Idaho and opened a new facility in San Diego, California. Both ventures were later sold in 1980, which reflected strategic business decisions on core strengths. Following those sales, Bailey's Moving continued expanding into the Rocky Mountain region. Bailey’s Moving and Storage opened a new location in St. George, Utah, then acquired locations in Denver, Colorado and Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1989.

These expansions allowed Bailey’s Moving to operate in Colorado for the first time in company history. Further expansions included Boulder, Colorado and Fort Collins, Colorado. Also, Bailey’s Moving opened an office in Washington, D.C., in 1990. Each step marked a significant phase in Bailey's Moving & Storage’s pioneering as a leader in the moving and storage industry.

The 90’s and early 2000’s were marked by a pattern of recognition for Bailey’s Moving and Storage by both Allied Van Lines and others. In response to its continued growth and reputation, Bailey's Moving & Storage won prestigious awards including Allied Van Lines Agent of the Year, Allied Van Lines International Agent of the Year, and Government (GSA) Agent of the Year.
