History of Sitterly Movers

  • 1930

    Sitterly Movers is founded in Greenfield, MA, by Forrest Sitterly to perform moving services in Franklin County, MA.

  • 1948

    Forrest's son, Roger Sitterly, partners with his father in 1948.

  • 1963

    Roger’s son and Sitterly Movers' current owner, Rod Sitterly, joins the company and assists in expanding its geographic area of service.

  • 1971

    Sitterly performs its first library move with the relocation of the University of Massachusetts’ Library in 1971. This move, the first of our 200+ library relocations, required 50 movers for two shifts a day over a period of three weeks.

  • 1972

    The success of the UMASS Library move becomes the building block for Sitterly Movers to become one of the primary movers for the many academic institutions of Western and Central Massachusetts, and a catalyst for Rod to expand Sitterly's services to include museum, office, industrial, and high-value product moving.

  • 1975

    Rod orchestrated Roger Sitterly and Son, Inc.’s acquisition of Anderson and Benson, a Springfield moving company with an equally high tradition of quality service dating back to its inception in 1917.

  • 1985

    Sitterly Movers is the company entrusted to move the Statue of Liberty's torch for its national bicentennial tour and subsequent move to its new headquarters.

  • Present Day

    Operating from offices in Springfield, Northampton, and Deerfield, Sitterly Movers has grown to become the largest moving company in Western Massachusetts. While we enjoy a long-standing reputation for our superior and efficient service, we still want to become even better. That is why we constantly update our equipment and technology while embracing the most innovative techniques being employed in the moving industry today.
