Welcome, Jenkins & Key Moving & Storage!

October 27, 2023 | Wheaton News & Events


Please join us in welcoming Jenkins & Key Moving & Storage, Inc., to Wheaton World Wide Moving! Previously an agent for Atlas Van Lines, the Urbana/Champaign moving and storage company joins more than 350 Wheaton agents across the country.

“Everyone here at Wheaton has a vested interest in customer satisfaction since we are an ESOP company,” said A.J. Schneider, President of Wheaton World Wide Moving. “Bobby, Julie and the whole Jenkins & Key team recognized that strength, and we’re happy to add them to our network as a strong interstate agent in Illinois.”


Owners Bobby and Julie Jenkins are the third generation leaders of the family-owned and operated business which began in 1954 with Bobby’s grandparents. The company is such a trusted part of the community that it is chosen by very well-known companies such as State Farm, which hired Jenkins & Key for a 24-hour per day, six-day move. The University of Illinois sports teams and band also trust the local moving company for their equipment moving needs.

The people at the Urbana/Champaign moving service are the main reason for its success.

“Most of our employees have been with us 10 plus years,” Bobby Jenkins said. “One employee is about to hit 50 years here. A lot of our seasonal helpers are the same employees every summer.”

The Jenkins & Key team gets involved in their community by helping the assisted living homes and donating to the local school districts in Urbana/Champaign.


Jenkins & Key Moving & Storage, Inc., is located at 1108 Carroll Ave., Urbana IL 61802. They can be reached by phone at (217) 367-6531 or online at
