Jim Bishop, Jr., Founder of Eastern Moving & Storage

Our History


The Bishop family history in the moving and storage industry dates back to the early 1900s in Bluefield, WV when O.H. Bishop, Jim Bishop, Jr.’s grandfather, bought his first truck. O.H. Bishop’s two sons, O.H. Jr. and Jim Sr., both worked for their father’s company throughout the early 1900s. Eventually, both brothers moved to Maryland to start their own moving companies. Jim, Sr. started his company, Safeway Moving & Storage, in Baltimore in 1950. and O.H. Jr. started BelAir Moving & Storage in Joppa, MD. Jim Jr. worked for his father’s company, alongside his brothers, until setting out on his own in the early 1970s to create Eastern Moving & Storage. In April of 1979, Eastern Moving & Storage Company was incorporated in Baltimore, MD. In 2001, Eastern Moving expanded its operations by purchasing BelAir Moving & Storage, and they added a Mobile Storage division to the company in 2017. Today, Eastern is owned and operated by Jim Bishop, III. We take great pride in carrying on the family tradition of excellence in the moving and storage industry.
