History of Chapel Hill Moving Company

In 1975, Roland and Wendy Intrator decided to relocate from California to North Carolina. Weighing options and considering how best to deal with the expense, Roland and Wendy settled on buying a used moving truck to conduct their own cross-country move. After they arrived in Chapel Hill, Roland continued to drive the truck around town. Soon people began asking him for help with in-town moves. It didn't take long for Roland and Wendy to realize they had a niche to fill in this small university town. From day one, Chapel Hill Moving Company has been a family run business, striving to provide courteous, professional, personalized moving services at competitive rates.

In 2008, Ethan Smith, longtime employee and family friend of Wendy and Roland took over operation of Chapel Hill Moving Company. Ethan began working for the Intrators during the summers of his college years. After graduating from the University of North Carolina's prestigious Kenan-Flagler Business School, Ethan continued to work for and learn from Roland and Wendy. He always aspired to own his own business, and when the Intrators decided to retire, Ethan jumped at the opportunity.

Ethan and his wife, Patricia, continue to work to provide the exceptional service Chapel Hill Moving Company is known for. Patty manages the office, and the full-time moving team is comprised of Ethan, along with long time friend and co-worker Steve Jones. Ethan and Steve have been moving together as a team for 10 years and their efficiency and experience is unrivaled.  CHM part-time employees consist of Patricia and Ethan's nephew, Chris, and the former owner's son, Micah Intrator. Chapel Hill Moving Company is committed to maintaining its reputation as the area's premier specialty mover.
