Company Profile

United Van Lines movers

As a third-generation, family owned business, J.H. Bennett Moving & Storage, Inc. is proud to be one of Pennsylvania’s oldest moving companies. In continual operation since our founding in 1914 our roots extend from our secure base in the Erie, PA community and now span across the country and around the globe.

As a full-service moving & storage company we provide transportation and warehousing services for everything from personal household goods to high-value products, trade show exhibits, and sensitive electronic equipment. Our modern, temperature controlled warehouse is available to meet any storage challenge.


J.H. Bennett has always been able to service the local Erie Community and the surrounding region. However, in 1964 an alliance was forged with United Van Lines. This single event enabled a well-known local resource to achieve a national and international reach. When it comes to moving and storage, J.H. Bennett still holds the largest market share in Erie, PA. Likewise, United Van Lines continues to hold the largest market share nationwide.

“When my grandfather started this company in 1914, household moves were accomplished with a cart and a team of horses. While the mechanics of business practices have changed dramatically throughout the past 90 years, the basic premise of providing genuine customer service has not.”

– J. Gordon Naughton, Former Company President
