Quick Transfer Moving Company history
Quick Transfer’s story began in 1959 with the founding of a small household moving company in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Herb Mueller, a recent immigrant to Canada, gathered all his resources and used $300 to acquire three small stake trucks. With a new opportunity in a new country, he prided himself on hard work, diligence, honesty and integrity. With this foundation, Quick Transfer quickly grew into one of the largest moving companies Winnipeg has to offer, distinguished by multiple awards and industry recognition.
In 1983, Ralph Mueller, eldest son of Herb, made the decision to join the family moving company as his lifelong vocation. Guided by the principles learned from his father, Ralph assumed responsibility of the now growing family business. Under his direction, Quick Transfer Moving & Storage has taken an ambitious line at expansion and diversification while holding to the values on which the company was founded.
Quick Transfer has expanded into specialized freight, export packaging, overseas container loading, and mobile self-storage while adding new moving locations and moving companies to the mix. We continue to focus on growth and expansion with our reach and capabilities now spanning across North America and the world.
