A Chat with Murphy Moving
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Murphy Moving is Omaha’s oldest family-owned and -operated local moving company. Since 1959, Ed and Mary Murphy have moved generations of Omahans, gaining lifelong customers. Since 1997, the second generation of Murphys have upheld the standards of 24/7 availability, quality, and low-cost moves.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Ed and Mary Murphy wanted to run a business from home, enabling them to spend quality time with their four children without sacrificing family time. Moving families like theirs at a fair price seemed the obvious choice. It was a natural fit for Ed, a Navy veteran, boxer, and physical trainer.
What do you love most about your job?
As the current owner, I love that I can reminisce about past moves with our loyal customers who still remember my parents and deceased brother, Mike Murphy. Our customers are a growing and changing extended family for us. We are proud to provide stress-free services in a high-stress world.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
The best feedback from a customer was that we were like family to her. She felt comfortable that she could count on us to do whatever moving she needed on short notice without having to worry about quality or cost.
