A MOVING COMPANY RICH IN HISTORY AND COMMUNITY VALUES
Sorensen Moving Company was started in March of 1956 by William H. Sorensen. Mr. Sorensen moved from upstate NY to Melbourne seeking a new business opportunity in an area that was rapidly expanding with the inception of the space program and KSC.
In 1977, Scott Sorensen, William’s son, took over as President and owner of Sorensen Moving and Storage. A few years later, Sorensen Moving and Storage relocated its corporate headquarters to a new and more spacious facility at EG BLvd, where the moving co currently resides.
Over the years, the company has seen a great deal of growth and success making it one of the most accomplished, family-owned moving companies in the industry. To better serve Central Florida and expand its local moving services, commercial moving services, and logistics management services, Sorensen was proud to open a second location in Orlando in 2013.
Recognized for numerous awards and accomplishments, Sorensen Moving and Storage continues to raise the bar for moving excellence and customer satisfaction.
