Jim Henderson, owner of William C. Huff Companies, along with his family and staff, are celebrating their 30-year anniversary.
Even though the moving company originally began in 1908, Henderson made the transition from employee to business owner when he bought William C. Huff’s small moving and storage company in Barrington, New Hampshire on December 15, 1988.
The original company began when two men were hired to move a piano. Today, the company has over 35 full-time employees and is a full-service logistics provider with offices in Barrington, New Hampshire and Naples, Florida. What started out as a small business with $30,000 in annual sales has now evolved into a specialty logistics provider that currently generates over $5 million dollars in sales each year.
William C. Huff Companies has moved households of over 30,000 square feet and has provided logistics services for homes valued in excess of $80 million dollars. Henderson says in the early years, household contents they moved were considered average priced. Today, his company handles priceless family heirlooms, antiques, fine art, and wine collections worth millions of dollars and has over 36,000 total moves to their credit.
The full-service company specializes in complete personalized logistics support for high and ultra-high net worth home owners, builders, designers, architects and estate managers and has a wide range of services for local, national and international clients.
“The original company mission statement was to maintain a reputation for a tradition of quality by consistently providing courtesy to the clients, care for their furnishings, and diligence in work performance and, this is still true today,” says Henderson.
One of the company’s new goals is to focus on a sustainable future. Henderson notes that current technology shows us a better way to handle the balance between economy and ecology. The company installed solar panels three years ago, making their 44,000 square foot warehouse powered by solar electricity. It’s important to Henderson and his team to have a negative carbon footprint on the environment. The company also reuses and recycles over 250,000 pounds of boxes annually.
A tradition of quality now means more than just moving and storage to Henderson and his team, it means quality of life for the community and future generations.
