Founded in 1922 by brothers Theodore and Raymond, Schaap Moving proudly serves families and businesses throughout upstate New York. For over 40 years, our family-owned company has been an agent for United Van Lines. Allowing us to provide services across town, country, and even internationally.

A Generation of Variety

Although we’ve always offered storage services, it wasn’t until 1985 that we began providing secure storage of confidential records. In 1990, Schaap invested in bar coding technology in order to track the location of stored records. As a result, our Records Management became one of the first in the Albany area to offer off-site document storage and retrieval of confidential documents utilizing bar coding.

The 1990s also saw the expansion of the business into distribution services and storage trailer rentals. Government agencies and private businesses have since come to depend on us for providing additional space to allow them to operate efficiently, and to handle the distribution accordingly. This necessitated the move to our current Albany facility, an 80,000 square-foot building in close proximity to both interstates 90 and 87.

Another addition to the Schaap Family of Companies was Certified Shredding Services. Shredding of confidential documents at the Albany facility was first offered in 2002 as identity theft became the fastest growing crime in the country. Then, in 2004, Certified Shredding Services also became mobile, allowing us to shred documents on site with a mobile shredding truck.

In 2004 Schaap Moving began offering Schaap Portable Containers. These containers could be stored in your driveway or at our secure facility. For the Do-It-Yourself customer, the Container could be loaded at your leisure for a local move, and are great for temporary storage while remodeling.

Regardless of the services you require, the Schaap Family of Companies is committed to providing you with the best value for your dollar. The goal of our family has always been to exceed the expectations of the people we serve.
