About Us - Professional Movers in Schenectady, NY & Capital District

The Leader Among Professional Movers in Schenectady, NY & Capital DistrictProfessional Movers in Albany, NY & Surrounding Areas

During my childhood, my father, Larry Geddes, worked for various trucking companies in one capacity or another. After graduating from high school in 1977, my father allowed me to travel with him over the road as a helper on a moving truck. I fell in love with the freedom of the job and worked my way from helper to driver to warehouse manager to dispatcher to operations manager over the next sixteen years. I learned the business from the bottom up.

The Ideal Move was established in 1993 with three men and two trucks. Through the years, we have grown to a fleet including eleven trucks and thirteen full-time employees. We are one of the only professional movers in the country to offer our valued employees health insurance and a 401K plan. Putting these benefits into place has enabled us to retain great employees over the years, which is a key component of our moving and storage success over other local moving companies in Schenectady, NY, and the Capital District.

In recent years, our biggest accomplishment to date is the move into our new facility located at 2205 Technology Drive in Schenectady, NY. This is a 16,500 square foot, climate-controlled, state-of-the-art facility. We now offer storage for Household Goods, Military and Government, High Tech, as well as High-Value Moving and Storage.

Celebrating over 25 years of local and long distance moving and storage services, our team of expert professional movers can handle all of your moving needs. Our mission statement of Value, Service & Reliability has allowed us to grow to be the “Capital Region’s Premier Mover.” So, for your stress-free experience, be sure to make your next move, IDEAL.
