Founded in 1913 by Mr. F.E. Scobey, director of the United States Mint, Scobey Moving
& Storage is one of the largest, most dependable moving companies in San Antonio
and an agent of Mayflower Transit, which also has a long tradition as one of the
most trusted movers in Texas.
Started with a four-story warehouse, six wagons, and twelve horses nearly a century
ago, Scobey has grown to become the premiere full-service movers in San Antonio.
Today, we operate a large, well-maintained fleet of trucks and more than 170,000
square feet of secure, modern warehouse and storage space in San Antonio, Killeen,
and El Paso. Our Killeen movers also serve Fort Hood, Temple, Georgetown and Waco.
In addition to providing a wide array of local, national and international relocation
and moving services for individuals as well as corporate, military, and government
clients, our expertise also includes the transportation of high-value products,
office and industrial equipment, and exhibits and displays. Our heavy haul and rigging
division specializes in plant relocations.
Although Scobey has grown over the years, we have maintained a steadfast commitment
to F.E. Scobey’s founding philosophy which was to “… carry on a business of integrity,
giving service to the community and employing people of intelligence and high moral
character." Those are values we will continue to honor as we do our part to help
keep Texas and America moving.
