We are proud to be able to support the needs of our customers during this crucial time but are prepared to quickly change course as required.

Stay safe together with Peasley Moving & Storage

The COVID-19 crisis is fluid and there are many uncertainties and factors outside of our control that may, with little or no advance notice, impact our delivery of moving & storage services. Please be aware the current crisis could potentially result in small inconveniences such as a delayed project start time or significant inconveniences such as the complete rescheduling of services.

Although there are many unknowns to be navigated, you can be certain that Peasley Moving & Storage will be timely and transparent in our communications regarding servicing your moving & storage needs, and our professional relocation consultants will work diligently to offer creative solutions in the event your project is impacted by the current health crisis.

Steps Peasley Moving & Storage is Taking:

  • Company-wide Implementation of all precautionary measures recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
  • Office staff and moving crews are being monitored daily for symptoms and/or known exposure by management and asked to go home, contact their healthcare provider, and self-quarantine as directed. Staff members that experience symptoms and/or aware of exposure when not at work have been directed to stay home and notify their supervisor.
  • Office staff and moving crews are receiving daily briefings on precautionary measures and have been directed to follow them on and off the job.
  • Office staff and moving crews are being instructed to maintain appropriate “social distance” of 6 feet minimum between one another, customers, and all other people.
  • Office staff and moving crews are being provided with appropriate hand sanitizer and surface disinfecting supplies. They have been directed to disinfect truck cabs and moving equipment between each move to the best of their ability. These supplies will continue to be replenished as we are able, based on availability from retailers.
  • Moving crews will be furnished with work gloves to be worn during the moving process and disinfected both during their work and between customers.
  • Moving crews will be furnished with appropriate masks (when available) to be worn during the moving process as circumstances require.
  • Peasley Moving & Storage is limiting visitation to our branch offices. If you wish to purchase moving boxes or supplies, please simply call in your order and we will happily deliver to your vehicle outside.
  • Peasley Moving & Storage is offering Virtual Estimate Appointments! For more information, please visit our Virtual Estimate Appointment page or ask about this terrific option when speaking with one of our professional relocation consultants.

Steps We’re Asking Customers To Take Prior To Our Arrival At Your Residence:

  • Please notify us immediately if you or any members of your household have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms including cough, fever, or difficulty breathing.
  • Please use disinfectant/cleaner to wipe down commonly touched surfaces, objects, door handles, etc. at your residence.
  • Please make a sink, hand soap, and paper towels available to your outside salesperson and moving crew for handwashing during their time within your home.
  • Please keep residence and office windows open throughout the moving process as this allows for greater airflow and less potential containment of germs.

We are all in this together.  The team at Peasley Moving & Storage is proud to continue offering our wide range of services in accordance with the necessary precautions outlined above. Whether you or your business will be moving down the street, across the country, or around the world, we are here to make the process seamless & safe for you, just as we’ve done for well over a century.

Our History

Free Moving Estimate

    Ed Peasley started Peasley Moving in 1890, the same year Idaho became the 43rd state. He began with horses and wagons delivering groceries for Falk Mercantile. History progressed, as did Peasley Moving, with autos and trucks, but Ed kept his team of mules to deliver the goods after truck breakdowns.

    Ed’s success in trucking led to joining Allied Van Lines in 1929. Mowbray and Gertrude Davidson bought Peasley Moving in 1940, and retained the name. Mowbray continued the freight business and added storage in Boise’s warehouse district, today named BoDo.

    about us


    In 1945, Emmet and Janet Davidson Herndon joined Mowbray. Together, Mowbray and Emmet were involved with Idaho Motor Carriers and Allied Van Lines. Following Gertrude’s passing, Mowbray married Georgia Phillips. Georgia started Idaho’s 1st TV station, KTVB, and Peasley Moving successfully transported the transmitter to Bogus. Then, in 1956, Peasley Moving donated services to carry Boise’s Cross to Table Rock.

    In 1962, Peasley Moving consolidated to its current location on North Curtis Road.  Operations were expanded to include over 60,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space, mini self-storage, and a railroad spur with an active railroad freight business into the 1980’s.  Kit Herndon (Emmet & Janet’s daughter) joined Peasley in 1980 and simultaneously became a member of the Greater Boise Chamber’s volunteer group called the Goldusters (called Ambassadors today).

    This brief history cannot begin naming all the accolades awarded to Peasley Moving and its employees over the past century.  Three honorable mentions are Dan Even and John Fair, Allied’s Drivers of the Year, and Emmet Herndon’s title of “Mr. Allied”.

    In 2015, Peasley Moving proudly celebrated both our 125th anniversary and the well-deserved retirement of Emmet, Janet, and Kit from the business. In December 2015, we became a division of Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage, a fellow Allied Van Lines agent who also celebrated a 125th anniversary in 2015. Together, we look forward to delivering the goods to Treasure Valley families and businesses for another 130+ years.
