Despite the craziness of that day, Harrington still managed to notify me once my grandmothers' antiques were securely stored. Thank god I contacted Harrington, because my entire first floor, in which the furniture was located, was flooded due to Irene.

One of the most damaging storms to hit New Jersey in a century, Hurricane Irene damaged and flooded many parts of the East Coast. Swallowed by Irene’s immense downpours, the New Jersey rivers began spilling their banks onto dry-land, and flooded thousands of backyards, streets, basements, and even major highways. Harrington Moving came to the rescue.

New Jersey media monitored the Hurricane, and informed New Jersey residents of its impending arrival on August 20. Many residents were told to evacuate, and homes were left empty and filled with valuable items. Harrington Moving & Storage sent an email to its’ clients offering to pick up and secure their household items. More than 100 New Jersey customers’ replied, and Harrington went to each home immediately.

“On Saturday afternoon, Harrington sent an email that it would pick up any materials, that needed protection from the Hurricane. I immediately thought of my antique horse statue, and called Harrington. Within two hours, Harrington was at my door, packed my statue, and loaded it safely onto their trucks.” says Harrington customer, Daniel Dean.

The Harrington team worked through the night, and loaded their trucks with Harrington customers’ household valuables. Harrington Movers took thorough inventory of their customers’ materials, and separated them by household. The Harrington storage facilities sheltered the valuables, and it was reported that all items did not endure any damage. Harrington prevented all items from water damage by covering each box while transporting it to the storage facilities.

“Despite the craziness of that day, Harrington still managed to notify me once my grandmothers’ antiques were securely stored. Thank god I contacted Harrington, because my entire first floor, where the furniture was located, was flooded due to the Hurricane. Roz was so helpful when he oversaw my pickup, this service saved my items from the horrible hurricane.” Said Harrington customer Benjamin Fishbein.

“Every day I am filled with more and more appreciation and respect for my staff. They are always so eager to participate in our charity work, and they are active in initiating their own charity work for the company. This particular altruistic service was not planned, and I couldn’t be more proud of the work my team did. In times like these, it is important that we come together and stand strong to fight our obstacles, and when it came to Hurricane Irene, my team did just that.” says Harrington President Jeff Harrington.
