Moving Systems, Inc. began its journey in the moving and storage industry
in 1937. Based originally in Hatboro, Pennsylvania with just a few trucks,
Reads built a strong foundation based on attention to customers' needs
and a commitment to quality service. In 1954, Reads became affiliated
with its first major van line, National Van Lines. With this carrier relationship,
Reads prospered for the next ten years, establishing a reputation nationwide
for superior service.
In 1964, when approached by Atlas Van Lines, Reads became an agent for
the van line. As a result of this 43 year relationship, Reads has maintained
a position as one of the top-ranked Atlas agents in terms of sales, hauling
capacity, and quality of service. Once a small, home-based business, Reads
has evolved into a full-service moving and storage operation with offices
in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Florida, and Georgia.
Moving Systems is an interstate Agent of Atlas Van Lines, and operates from
locations up and down the eastern seaboard and gulf coast. Our approach
to delivering a consistently superior level of service is assured through
more than 300 well trained employees, our fleet of trucks and equipment,
and the different Reads locations, which oversee every personal
