The Moving Connection Story
In true Boulder spirit, The Moving Connection was born not out of a calculated business decision, but from the demise of a rock band. It was 1989, and the band's drummer, Glen McGinty, suddenly found himself to be the sole proprietor of the big purple truck the band had used to haul around its equipment. So, with the help of a former roadie, Glen went into the moving business.
In 1991, Glen met Dave Moloney, a classically-trained chef from Ireland who was running a local alternative bakery. Business was expanding, so Glen talked Dave into moonlighting as a mover. Dave liked the work so much that just two weeks later, he bought the company!
Dave has owned The Moving Connection ever since, and despite the fact that it's meant leaving behind his culinary ambitions, he still loves being in the moving business. His employees love it too. Most of them have been with the company for years, which makes them true experts at every aspect of their jobs. In 2002 his wife Elizabeth joined him in the company and in the past couple of years, both his sons have also worked in the business – making it a true family run operation.
Since its humble beginnings, The Moving Connection has grown from one truck to five, from two employees to twelve, from something for Glen McGinty to do besides play drums into one of Boulder's most trusted and experienced moving companies. But one thing that has never changed in all that time is our commitment to being an integral part of the Boulder community - because where else could a company started by an ex-drummer with a purple truck end up being a mover of choice for local government?
