Our Story

Mayflower Transit began with a vision to give people a choice, providing an alternative to using railroads to move household goods.

We are proud to be the most recognized name in moving, and the moving company you choose to get started on your next adventure.

Our History

Conrad M. Gentry and Don F. Kenworthy founded Mayflower Transit in Indianapolis, IN, in 1927. After more than two decades serving American families, Mayflower expanded to include corporate employee relocations as well as transporting tradeshow displays and exhibits. In 1961, Mayflower began supporting America’s government and military moves throughout the world.

Our Network

Mayflower joined UniGroup, Inc. in 1995, forming the nation’s largest moving and storage services provider.

In 2018, UniGroup Shareholders voted to become a cooperative (co-op) to better serve its agents and customers by providing centralized support functions, products and services, purchasing power technology and information networks.
