Bart McCorquodale, a native of Jackson, Alabama, was working at a manufacturing company in New York City when he began hearing frequent complaints from various companies about how hard it was to move antiques and major furniture pieces in the Southeast. In 1995, McCorquodale decided to respond to those concerns and start a moving company of his own in Birmingham, McCorquodale Transfer, Inc..
At the company’s onset, many online retailers such as Restoration Hardware, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, and Crate and Barrel were in their infancy and needed delivery services, which gave McCorquodale an industry “in.” Soon, McCorquodale Transfer, Inc. began shipping antique furniture and moving household goods, as well as expanding its services into other areas of the South.
From high-end antiques, McCorquodale Transfer, Inc. soon broadened its scope to a variety of services, including warehouse storage and both affordable residential and commercial moving on a wide range of scales. Its success, according to Bart McCorquodale, is in the way the company is run: “just as a family business would be.” McCorquodale Transfer, Inc. now has offices in four locations throughout the Southeast in Birmingham, Jackson, Charleston, and Atlanta.

Sidney and his team did a fantastic job. Very professional and made our move much less stressful. They were very fast, very efficient and know what they are doing.
I'd strongly recommend you go with McCorquodale Transfer for your next move. I know I will use them again.
