Glen Ellyn Storage Corporation has been moving families, offices, products and trade shows since 1933.

We are an agent for Mayflower Transit LLC with three locations. Our headquarters is located in Carol Stream and we have an additional location in Chicago

Our experience, dedication and performance has won us numerous awards, including the President’s Choice Award, Mayflower’s highest designation and The Customer Choice Award from our most important critics, our customers.

Charles Joseph Hennicke, affectionately referred to as “Joe”, founded DuPage Motor Express in 1926. Besides providing moving services, DuPage Motor Express also delivered groceries and appliances. In 1933, DuPage Motor Express merged with Glen Ellyn Storage and thus became an agent for Mayflower.

Glen Ellyn moving crewJoe’s son David became president in 1962 and quickly changed the company’s emphasis to moving. He is credited with taking Glen Ellyn Storage from its debuting position with Mayflower Transit as one of the lowest ranking agents to transforming it to one of the strongest agents in the van line, often winning the number one position. Under David’s leadership, Glen Ellyn Storage grew not only in size but in reputation. Glen Ellyn Storage began to win awards with Mayflower Transit. Located on Duane Street in downtown Glen Ellyn, the small suburban company made its presence known not only within Mayflowers’ nationwide system but in the local community as well. David joined his employees and their families in community service projects, parades and company functions. David was elected to the Board of the American Mover’s Conference and became President of Mayflower’s Warehousemen’s Association.

As the company’s standards grew the awards and achievements kept Glen Ellyn Storage soaring to new heights with the highly coveted Circle of Excellence Award. By 1994, additional storage space was needed and the company built a new warehouse and maintenance facility also in Addison. The Duane Street location was sold to the city of Glen Ellyn to construct the Glen Ellyn Library.

Our storage facility in Glen EllynIn 1996, David Hennicke sold Glen Ellyn Storage to Larry Smith the General Manger of the company. Larry had worked for Glen Ellyn Storage since the age of sixteen as a mover and a salesperson before becoming General Manager. His mother, Glenda Beck, was one of the three original employees of Glen Ellyn Storage. As president of the company, Larry purchased additional agencies in Chicago and Plainfield. He also acquired Adco United in Barrington. In 2002, the company’s quality in handling household goods both domestically and internationally earned awards such as the Customer Choice Award. This award is given to Mayflower Agents who receive high ratings on the post move surveys sent to customers allowing them to rank an agency’s quality. Glen Ellyn Storage also won the President’s Choice Award; this award is given by the President of Mayflower choosing the best Mayflower agent out of 600 agents in the Mayflower Agent family.

Larry also added product distribution and installation to Glen Ellyn Storage’s array of services. Glen Ellyn Storage has delivered and installed products including appliances and cabinets for major companies such as General Electric. As the distribution business grew, additional facilities were purchased in Carol Stream and later in Pennsylvania and Kentucky. In 2007, Glen Ellyn Storage merged the Addison and Carol Stream facilities together into a brand new facility built in Carol Stream.

Q What should I do with my jewelry and other valuable items?

Items of extraordinary value such as jewelry, money, antiques, and stamp collections
can be included in your shipment, provided that you notify your local moving representative
of these items before packing and moving day. It is strongly recommended that you carry
irreplaceable and expensive articles with you, or make alternate arrangements for their

In the moving industry, items worth more than $100 per pound are considered to be articles
of "extraordinary value.” To be assured that a claim involving these articles is not limited
to minimal liability, complete and sign your mover's high-value inventory form.
Also, be sure to sign the "Extraordinary Value Article Declaration" box, if applicable, on
your Bill of Lading.

Each mover has a slightly different procedure to follow as it relates to high-value items.
Ask your relocation specialist to provide you with an explanation of their company's process.
This is a confusing (but important) task, so be sure that you clearly understand the rules
prior to load day.

Q How do I prepare my appliances for moving?

Appliances such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators must be disconnected, and the washer
must have a stabilizer installed. Again, your estimator can help you understand how these
items are properly serviced. All local moving companies have business relationships with
local service providers that handle this type of service, however full service moving
companies and national moving companies will also be able to provide all of the moving
services you require. Be sure you know who your mover will be using, as you will need to let
these people into your home to provide the service.
