It all began back in 1961 when Robert and Madeline Meelheim put $2000 down on the old Barnegat Bay Ice House in Toms River and bought their first truck, a covered wagon straight truck affectionately known as ‘Betsy’. Robert and Madeline made a commitment from the beginning to base their moving and storage company on trust and reputation, so when it came time to decide what to paint on the truck, they put their very own name on the line: Meelheim’s Transfer & Storage.
A lot has changed since those early days when Aunt Ann, who used to letter fire and beer trucks, put the Meelheims’ name on that first truck. ‘Betsy’ would be joined by ‘Judy’, and one truck and three employees would grow to become the oldest locally owned and most trusted moving company in Ocean County, New Jersey. Meelheim’s is now entering its 6th decade of moving area businesses, government and residents in Ocean County and throughout New Jersey.
Meelheim’s is a member of the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA), the New Jersey Warehousemen and Movers Association (NJWMA), the Better Business Bureau (BBB), the Toms River-Ocean County Chamber of Commerce and a participant in the ProMover Program, which promotes ethical principles in the moving and storage industry.
And while so much has changed, some fundamentals remain the same. Meelheim’s is still famous for consistently providing the best moving and storage services available to you and your family. The company continues to be run by the Meelheim family, second generation movers and brothers Ron, Jeff, and Bruce Meelheim.
The Meelheim brothers were born and raised in their parents’ moving business. They worked their way up from helpers to drivers and now owning and operating the family business. Moving and storage is what they know; it’s what they do.
Everytime they perform a job, the Meelheims not only fulfill Robert and Madeline’s dream of a successful, family-owned business based on integrity and character, they put their name and reputation on the line, Meelheim’s Transfer and Storage, since 1961. Robert and Madeline wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
