About Us

In 1922, our current moving company was founded as the Maher Brothers, in Iowa City, which primarily transported consumer goods across the country. Even though we’d yet to become the household movers Cedar Rapids and eastern Iowa customers trust more than any other competitor, our early history taught our founder, Mr. Dennis Maher, the importance of accommodating and transparent customer service. As a family-owned and operated business, Maher Brothers prioritized customer care above everything else because nothing makes a move easier than doing it with reliable people that value your time and money.

As our moving company grew, it expanded its service to including residential moving and, during the 1950s, Maher Brothers Transfer & Storage transitioned to new ownership under the Riley family, who, to this day, continues the near-century-old tradition of prioritizing first-rate customer care above all else.

During the 1980s and 1990s, Maher Brothers further solidified itself as the reputable movers Cedar Rapids and Iowa customers could trust by establishing moving service terminals in Cedar Rapids and the Quad Cities market. Then, in 1995, Maher Brothers further confirmed itself as a moving industry leader by becoming an affiliate of Allied Van Lines. In the summer of 2016, Maher Brothers Transfer & Storage strengthened its partnership with Allied as well as its service area radius by acquiring the Des Moines market, where we will continue our proud tradition of providing hauling and logistical services that few competing Cedar Rapids and Eastern Iowa moving companies can match.


Today, when it comes to quality and reputable moving companies, Cedar Rapids customers, and those throughout Iowa, collectively agree that Maher Brothers is the gold standard. Our connections to Allied’s global network of moving professionals as well as with CRST and their fleet of specialty hauling vehicles give us the industry-grade resources to streamline any relocation, but our comprehensive customer care and guidance is what truly defines the experience of moving with us.

When selecting quality moving companies, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Davenport, Des Moines and Eastern Iowa customers alike value industry experience, customer transparency, and excellent service variety. Maher Brothers Transfer & Storage has defined its near-century-old legacy by providing all three along with our focused, cost-effective moving solutions.
