Basic Moving becomes an agent for Wheaton World Wide Moving

Brooklyn, New York |

Brooklyn, N.Y. moving firm joins forces with the sixth largest relocation company in the United States to provide relocation services throughout the country


Basic Moving has joined the Wheaton World Wide Moving network of 250 agents across the country. Founded in 2005 by owner Ben Kogan, Basic Moving was an independent moving company in Brooklyn until it recently affiliated with Wheaton.

Basic Moving operates from 7,500 square-feet of warehouse space and is managed with a customer first philosophy by a team that has years of experience in the moving and relocation services industry. Basic Moving can be a single source for all of its customers relocation needs. The company handles all aspects of relocation from packing, loading and transportation of household goods for individual residents and their families - both interstate and locally - to corporate relocation of employees for large corporations. Basic Moving also does a robust commercial business relocating businesses and their office equipment as well as furniture, fixtures and equipment for a variety of industries.

"We're excited about our new partnership with Wheaton and we believe it's a company whose business philosophy ensures our customers in New York will get the best possible interstate service," Kogan said. "The Wheaton name is synonymous with quality."

Kogan made the strategic decision to affiliate with Wheaton, a company that has no long-term debt and has been profitable nearly every year since its inception in 1945. Wheaton and its network represents the only moving company to have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal for its interstate moving services - and has done so every year since 1964.

"Adding a quality agent like Basic will help us to grow our business - and our list of loyal customers - in New York," said Mark Kirschner, Wheaton's CEO. "I'm confident Basic will develop its own brand of Wheaton's quality service that focuses directly on our customers' needs. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Basic."

Basic Moving's corporate offices and sales are located at 68 34th Street, 6th Floor in Brooklyn and can be reached at 800-570-0252.
