About Barnes Moving and Storage

In the 1930’s, Charlie Barnes owned a Sand & Gravel Delivery Business in the Stonington Area and occasionally helped his neighbors move. The demand was so great for moving furniture and household goods, that Charlie obtained his Connecticut State Hauling Authority License #CT 233, (one of the earliest licenses in the State). He located his Company on Route 27 in Mystic, Connecticut, 1/2 mile from the Mystic Seaport. In 1960, Robert & Frederick Barnes bought the business from their Uncle Charlie and in 1968 Jeffrey Barnes came to work for his father, Fred. In 1974, they moved to their present location on Route 184, the Goldstar Highway in Mystic, Connecticut and in 1980, they put in a Certified Truck Scale and joined National Van Lines Carol Barnes came to work for her husband, Bob in the late 1980’s and the four Barnes’s ran the business until Bob Barnes passed away in 1997. The Business was put up for sale in 1998 and Dean DePietro, then President and Owner of Presidential Van Lines in Providence, Rhode Island, saw the potential due to the location, and purchased the Company in February 1999. Since then, the Company has grown substantially. Barnes Moving & Storage joined Mayflower Transit in 2001 servicing all of Connecticut and Rhode Island. The company proudly serves America’s military by servicing the Naval Submarine Base in Groton, CT and The Newport Naval Station in Newport, RI.

Barnes Moving and Storage Reviews

Get all your moving needs done the professional way
- Lance Wyman

I have been meaning to write this for quite some time, but better late than never I hope. I hired Barnes for my long distance move. I admit that I probably could win a prize for most nervous person in hiring a mover. However, the level of professionalism and conscientiousness I received from all employees - from the office staff to the movers to the truck driver - was outstanding. Additionally, due to a blizzard, I was delayed by one day, but my driver Brian uncomplainingly rearranged his schedule to accommodate me. Every last item was carefully accounted for and delivered unscathed. It was a pleasure to do business with them. I cannot recommend Barnes strongly enough. You won't be disappointed.
- Nadine Baker

Helped me with getting a weigh ticket, easy and fast. Even gave me a new one when I needed my husband's name on it instead of mine. Excellent people, very friendly.
- Gray Fox

This business is a rare combination of competence, kindness and efficiency. Their estimate is guaranteed. They bring plenty of very good, pleasant workers to ensure all furniture is handled well. They are great with antique pianos and other difficult furniture too. They also arranged to have our pool table disassembled and then assembled at the other end. The move was around 500 miles and they communicated well with us for their timing. I cannot say enough good things about them and highly recommend them.
- Susie Stritar

These guys were awesome. The movers came the day of the move, introduced themselves one at a time and then got started. It was a fairly large move with some large furniture. These guys handled it no problem and were pleasant and friendly the entire time. I was told that taking apart exercise equipment was something they did not do, but after having problems disassembling one of the machines, the guys were nice enough to do it for me and then put it back together. I strongly recommend this company -- customer service is definitely their strong suit. I will be using them to do another move for a family member soon. I couldn't be more happy with how everything turned out. Thank you again for making my move a smooth transition.

Good Afternoon, I felt compelled to write this after my experience with Barnes Moving and Storage. Both Dean and Sharon have been extremely helpful in a process which started in the middle of March. First off they were both very professional when speaking and meeting with them. My mother was moving from one area to another in a local assisted living facility. Dean fit me in the first week I was there moving her. He arrived when he said he would and quickly went through her place asking all the right questions and understanding my concerns about the things that were going into storage etc. He explained everything thoroughly and within 48 hours had a quote sent to my email.....In the mean time I was able to have relatives and myself remove most of her belonging and by the time we had her moved upstairs there was nothing left to put in storage. I emailed Dean of the situation and he fully understood and was happy we had been able to take care of it all. Unfortunately My mother was only in the new unit for less than a month and I called Dean again saying sorry but I needed him to return as now I needed all of her remaining belongings shipped to my two children in different parts of the country. He was very sorry for our loss. He came out right away and on time to see what and where everything was going. Again he had the quote to me when promised. We agreed on a ship date the crew arrived on time and with great professionalism under the leadership of a gentleman named Coleman ( along with Jennifer and Greg) Packed up everything carefully and explained what and how the shipping would be handled. They were in and out in a timely fashion and I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs moving services of any kind in the future. I hope this has been helpful to anyone needing a moving company!!! My best wishes to all Phil . Stockton New Jersey.

I wasn't planning on having to move, but Barnes proved invaluable to what remained of the process for me. The estimate of arrival time was just a half hour window, not 4 hours as other businesses and they were on time. All three of the movers were hard working and friendly and I felt comfortable with them in my home and handling my furniture and books.
- Jennifer

I called Barnes Moving and Storage to move one of my clients. My client is on a fixed income and moving her was not an easy task. Barnes Moving and Storage not only provided exceptional service but we're very patient and caring toward my client. I cannot express my gratitude enough and how wonderful it is to work with a company that is just as invested in helping our client as much as we are. I highly recommend this company to everyone, they are truly the best.
- Kassie LaRoche

These guys were amazing! Made my family and I feel less stressed at a time of flux. We’re kind, polite and overall a nice group of gentleman. They even were lovely to our dog! I highly recommend. Made my mom super pleased too.
- Brianna Ducey

The drivers not only stole some property but they did not complete the job they were hired to do. On closing day, they left over 1/3 of my property in the house. The buyers could have backed out of the deal for breach of contract. I had to hire two other people to complete the job just hours before I was supposed to be moved out of the house. I called to file a complaint. The manager, Dean, did nothing. I contacted the main office and was told they couldn’t do anything because it was a local move. They could only act if it were an interstate move. Do yourself a favor and find another company.
- Christian Roman

This was out 4th professional move and was by far the best. All our belongings arrived without a blemish. The packing crew did an outstanding job. We placed our goods in storage for a little over a month while we were searching for our new home and when we were ready so was Barnes. Unlike past moves we received everything that was ours there was no damage and the delivery was as promised and the crew was fantastic. Fred our driver was great he took care of everything we needed and then some. Easiest move ever.
- Tom Murray

As the owner of the company, I would like to respond to the 2 reviews: Chrstian Roman and Toni V. I have never dealt with either one of these alleged customers. These are absolutely false reviews.
- Dean Depietro

Used this company twice already, and plan to use them again with this upcoming move. Excellent crews, pack carefully. Not one of my items or China and crystal broken! I was amazed! They are also very helpful in setting things up at your new destination and helping you rearrange stuff at your old one. And always with a smile… Can’t ask for better than that!
- AB Ringering

Professional, fast, obliging....good crew, on time and reasonable price. I would hire them again.
- Marsh CT

Used twice, once long distance. Punctual and professional. Not one item was lost or broken. I hear nightmare stories about movers found online, I never had a negative issue with Barnes Moving and Storage.
- Carolyn Pry

We couldn’t have asked more of a moving company...from the accurate estimate of the cost, the careful wrapping of items, to the on time delivery...PERFECT!!!
- Elaine Ortgiesen

Friendly owners and easy to work with!
- Randy Wallin

The move went extremely smoothly. They are very professional, punctual and organized. They were very careful with our things. The best movers we have dealt with so far.
- John Leen

I recently used them to move me to a new home about 2.5 hours away. I was very pleased. They showed up on time (very important). 4 guys with two trucks led by Nick and Dave. All the guys were very friendly and professional. They took great care with my belongings and they were a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend.
- Tom Gandolfo

Have done two moves with Barnes, one local and one international...Sharon, Dean and the team could not have done more to make both moves run smoothly...Excellent and highly recommend!
