Premier Moving & Storage has been in business in Columbia, MO serving Mid Missouri since 1957, when our business began as Simmons Moving & Storage Co.  For business and household moving companies in Columbia, our name says it all - the Premier of all long distance moving, local moving, and storage services.


Our founder, Fred Simmons, was a University of Missouri football player under Coach Don Faurot, a baseball player for Mizzou, a Big Band Leader, a husband, and father active in his community.


In 1959 Simmons Moving & Storage Co. became an Agent for North American Van Lines, making us the Mid-Missouri representative for over fifty-five years!


In 2003 we changed our name to Premier Moving & Storage, Inc. Rest assured the change was in name only! Our owner/management team of Allen Beeson, Mike Stohlgren, and Willis Schluckebier have over 100 years combined experience with our Company; something no other Columbia based mover can say!


In 2016, we saw another expansion as a major competitor left the Mid-Missouri market and we increased our staff with new highly experienced moving and storage professionals.  We continue to uphold Fred's intent to serve our community, and those moving into our community, providing every family and business with respect and high standards of service.
