Established in Pembroke, Ontario – 1908
Cassidy’s Self Store and Move is a division of Cassidy’s Transfer & Storage Ltd.
Cassidy’s Self Store and Move service provides Ottawa shipping containers for self storage and moving. These portable storage containers are perfect for commercial storage and residential self storage.
Cassidy’s was established in 1908 in the town of Pembroke, Ontario as a drayage company transporting baggage from the train station to homes and businesses in the area. Being near a military base in Petawawa, Ontario allowed Cassidy’s to expand its services into moving household furniture outside of the local area.
In 1969, Cassidy’s Transfer and Storage was purchased by Gordon Robinson and has been operated by him and the Robinson family ever since. Under Gordon Robinson, Cassidy’s has enjoyed steady growth and is now one of the largest transportation companies in the Ottawa Valley with offices in Pembroke and Ottawa. In addition to local and long distance household moving, Cassidy’s operates a substantial freight fleet and is a recognized leader in specialized transportation that includes high value, high security and time sensitive shipping.
In 1998 Cassidy’s recognized that do-it-yourself movers and people requiring storage needed a better alternative to borrowing and renting trucks. Cassidy’s Self Store and Move was born to make DIYmoving easier and cheaper than it had ever been. This service was an immediate success and has expanded to nearly 200 move and storage containers in high demand by individuals and businesses.
