Champion Moving and Storage, a Rochester, NY-based moving company, is celebrating its 30th anniversary this month.

After working in the industry for years, Christopher Carter and Charlie Kuhns seized an entrepreneurial opportunity and started Champion Moving in 1986. They were soon joined by Terri Licata, Scott Smith, Scott Leonard, and Cathy Kuhns, all of whom would become core members of the Champion team for years to come.

The company initially saw rapid growth and quickly expanded into Syracuse and Albany. However, turbulence in the housing market, particularly the collapse in 2008, threatened to put the company out of business. Looking to weather the storm, Champion strategically closed its satellite offices and refocused on the Rochester market - where it has become deeply rooted over the last 30 years.

“All businesses experience ups and downs, and the moving industry has seen tough times, but our company has prevailed because of the strength of our team,” says Carter, owner of Champion Moving. “I’m so proud of their resilience, hard work and dedication over the years.”

While focused in the Greater Rochester area, Champion does work with clients who are moving or need valuable goods transported across or out of New York State. In the past year, Champion has made 680 local moves and 480 interstate moves, including transporting a total 4.3 million pounds of household furniture.

From a group of 5 people, the company has grown into 35 full-time employees who boast over 380 years of combined experience in the moving and storage industry. Champion works with individuals and families who are making household moves to and from Rochester, as well as commercial customers, including University of Rochester, the City of Rochester, and the city school district.

“Without the loyalty of our customers and this strong community, we would not be the successful company we are today,” added Carter. “We are excited about what lies ahead.”

Headquartered in Rochester, NY, Champion Moving and Storage is a local moving company that was established in 1986, and is accredited by the American Moving & Storage Association. Champion serves both household and commercial customers, and executes both short and long hauls. To learn more about Champion and their moving and storage solutions, please visit
