Moving Families for over 75 years

Our roots go back to 1935, when Robert McGuire bought a truck and began moving families in and around Peoria, Illinois. Mr. McGuire’s company grew and prospered by paying close attention to the details that turn an ordinary move into an extraordinary moving experience.

The granddaughter of the founder, Joy Adams, and her husband, Russ Adams, purchased McGuire Moving and Storage in 1978. Along with the rest of the McGuire team, they have continued the customer-oriented traditions of the founder.

In 1983, McGuire became an agent for Arpin Van Lines, the 4th largest van line in the United States. In 2021 McGuire transitioned to being an agent for Bekins Van Lines.

A Message From Our President.

We’re part of the community

We are as committed to our community as we are to the thousands of individuals and families we have moved.

Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation
McGuire provides storage, transportation and logistical support in the days and weeks leading up to the annual Race for the Cure. Employees are encouraged to participate in the race or volunteer for other support duties. We also organize the Peoria stop of the BMW/Susan G. Komen Ultimate Drive, a cross-country road rally. These two events raised millions of dollars each year to support breast cancer education and research.

St. Jude Midwest Affiliate
McGuire is a corporate sponsor of the St. Jude Golf Classic, which supports research and treatment of childhood cancer.
