The Founders
Natives of Roselle, New Jersey, William Dolan and James Quigley are the founders of University Van Lines. Bill graduated from Saint Peter’s College in Jersey City and Jim attended Upsala College in East Orange. As college students, they both worked for Mulligan’s Movers in Newark. In 1975, they decided to start a moving and storage company after working in different jobs.

Company Vision
Bill and Jim’s vision was to establish a company that was honest and reliable. They wanted a company that also educated the moving public on how a move should be handled. This was why they named the company University Van Lines, and created the motto “An Educated Move.” They started with one truck and all the passion and energy of two young men willing and able to succeed in business through hard work.

Seamless International Moves
If there’s anything more difficult than relocating across the state, it’s moving to another country. Leave everything to us, because we are experts in household relocations around the world. We help you clear customs barriers, navigate unfamiliar cities, and handle all port procedures as quickly as possible.

Safe Storage Solutions
It’s not practical to bring all your belongings with you in one go. This is especially true if you’re planning to relocate abroad. That said, we have containerized storage units in an environmentally controlled warehouse where you can store all your furniture and belongings as long as needed. The warehouse is equipped with alarms and cameras, and is fully air conditioned and heated. Rely on us to keep an eye on your possessions.

Commercial Moving
We know that moving offices can lead to a loss in productivity and potential downtime for your company. That’s why we do our best to get the job done quickly. We offer flexible schedules for commercial moving, and even offer weekend moves. Our services are available for small to large companies of up to 200 people.

Quality Moves All the Time
University Van Lines uses all resources to help you move your items with ease. To ensure that all moves are done smoothly, we inspect our fleet of vehicles regularly and train our movers on the correct way to handle and pack furniture and other items.

Q Do I need to be home during the move?

On the day of the move you need to be present. There is paperwork to sign and you need to
show the movers exactly what is being moved. After the movers have loaded the truck you will
be ask to do a walk through. That is the time to point out anything that may have been missed
once the truck drives away they are done.

At the unload they will place boxes in rooms based on the rooms written on the boxes
(ie., bedroom, kitchen, garage). Furniture will be placed in the location you specify.
It is helpful if you already have a basic idea where you want furniture placed.
If the movers have to keep rearranging and switching furniture around it will take longer
and you are paying hourly.

Q What do I do with my animals?

You want to make sure animals are in their cat/dog carrier prior to the movers arriving.
Animals are curious and can get underfoot. If your dog isn’t good around strangers please
have them tied up or in their carrier. The moving company cannot transport any live animal
no dogs, cats, fish or reptiles are allowed in the truck.
