Small enough to care,
BIG enough to get the job done.

  • mike-jenkinsMike Jenkins

    President

    Moving Experience since 1988

    Anchor Employee since: 2010

    Selected as South Jersey Biz Magazine’s top Executives for 2013, Mike helps lead Anchor Moving & Storage to become one of Philadelphia’s premier moving companies.

    Growing up with a father that was an officer in the Air Force, moving became a part of Mike’s life from the beginning.  Relocating every two years and spanning the globe, Mike understands that moving is more than just an address change.

    Mike began working on the trucks starting in 1988 during the summers to help pay for college.  Upon graduation from Rowan University in ’92, and a failed attempt of become a professional Tetris player, Mike became a sales person for one of the largest van lines in the Country.  Mike quickly worked his way up to be one of the top 10 bookers in COD sales in the country while moving over 15,000 families in his career.  In 2008, Mike started “Sound Relocation”, a packing business acting as a subcontractor to multiple moving companies.   In 2010, along with the support of his friends and family, Mike purchased Anchor Moving & Storage.  “I really enjoyed those two years as a packer, rolling up my sleeves, & working alongside some great people.  It really grew my network of quality workers that I was able to bring with me to Anchor and help the company grow”.

    In Mike’s newly established position as President at Anchor Moving & Storage, Mike has already amassed an impressive list of successful moves for organizations such as: State of NJ Treasury Dept., NJ Judiciary system, NJ Office of Legislative Services, College of NJ, Rowan University, Lincoln University, Rutgers, Convatec, Voorhees Municipality, DYFS, Merrill Lynch, Magrann Associates, Sea Isle Library, and a list of others. Anchor Moving & Storage has seen tremendous growth over the last three years despite the recession and has been able to provide jobs for 50+ employees and their families. In 2013, Inc Magazine awarded Anchor as one of Philadelphia’s top 50 fastest growing companies.

    When not working (which is rare), Mike enjoys his time with his wife of 20+ years and three daughters, along with the occasional round of golf.

    VP Government Relations

    Moving Experience since 1968

    Anchor Employee since: 2010

    “Do what’s right” is Ed’s leadership and management philosophy, which was born and distilled during his 24 year military service and 12 years as a state emergency manager and planner.  When asked about his moving experience, Ed said,” Having moved 15 times in 24 years, my family identifies closely with the emotional burden when a family is up-rooted.  My work with Anchor Moving and Storage seems like a natural progression of service to others while navigating and satisfying the requirements of government oversight.” Ed and his wife Ann are preparing for move number sixteen while renovating a house in Chestnut Hill, PA.  If you mention golf to Ed, you’ll likely get an invitation to join him for a round.

  • julius-stricklandJulius Strickland

    Operations Manager / Class A Driver

    Moving Experience since: 2000

    Anchor Employee since: 2010

    Through hard work and dedication Julius has risen from humble beginnings. He started in the moving business in 2000 working summers as a helper.

    “Who would have thought 13 years later I would be the dispatcher and planner for an up and coming company. I have a class A license and have run the road for six years, I’m also a certified packer and forklift operator. My experience in the moving business allows me to understand the worker’s point of view at the same time being aware of the customer’s needs. Customer service is my strongest asset, if a customer isn’t happy… I’m not happy. My motto is: Prepare, Prepare, Prepare. In life, and in the moving business, there are plenty of curve balls and being able to adapt is critical. This is easy to do as long as you’re prepared!  When not working, I enjoy spending time with my three wonderful children.”
