Founded in 1922 by brothers Theodore and Raymond, Schaap Moving proudly serves families and businesses throughout upstate New York. For over 35 years the family-owned company has been an agent for United Van Lines, allowing us to provide service across town, across the country, and even internationally.

Although the company has always offered storage services to complement their moving business, it wasn’t until 1985 that they began providing secure storage of confidential records. In 1990 Schaap invested in bar coding technology to track the location of stored records, and Schaap Records Management became one of the first in the Albany area to offer off-site document storage and retrieval of confidential documents utilizing bar coding.

The 1990s also saw the expansion of the business into distribution services and storage trailer rentals. Government agencies and private businesses have come to depend on Schaap for adding the space they need to allow them to operate efficiently, and handle the distribution accordingly. This necessitated the move to our current Albany facility, an 80,000 square-foot building in close proximity to both interstates 90 and 87.

Another addition to the Schaap Family of Companies was Certified Shredding Services. Shredding of confidential documents at the Albany facility was first offered in 2002 as identity theft became the fastest growing crime in the country. Then, in 2004, Certified Shredding Services also became mobile, allowing us to shred documents on site with a mobile shredding truck.

In 2004 Schaap Moving began offering Schaap Portable Containers. These containers can be stored in your driveway or at our secure facility. For the Do-It-Yourself customer, the Container can be loaded at your leisure for a local move, or are great for temporary storage while remodeling.

Regardless of the services you require, the Schaap Family of Companies is committed to providing you with the best value for your dollar. The goal of the family has always been to exceed the expectations of the people we serve.
