Shamrock Moving and Storage was founded in 1975 by Bob & Barbara Fallon in San Francisco, CA. After learning his trade at another local mover, along with his wife Barbara, Bob started Shamrock with one truck and a mission: “Take care of the customer and the customer will take care of you.” He and his family have followed this creed since the company’s inception, with great success.We started with one employee, Bob himself, and one truck. They operated out of a small office in the basement of their house, where Barbara worked while simultaneously taking care of their four children. Bob went out did the moves with 1 helper. We now operate almost 30 vehicles with about 45 employees across 3 locations, and move over 3,000 people a year. There are no aspects of the business that the Fallon family are not involved in, whether it’s our household and commercial moving operations, our vaulted storage which now has over 2500 vaults or our burgeoning receiving and delivery service we provide to a growing number of top designers. We also introduced new self-storage facilities and services which will complement our full-service vaulted storage. We also now deliver to 12 western states.
We are recommend year after year by a large number of real estate professionals from many firms throughout the Bay Area because we always deliver our very best to them and their clients. We always try and listen to our customers’ needs to make sure we can provide every service they need during the moving process, whether it’s taking down and crating a large chandelier, or craning large items out of windows on the 15th floor. In the rare event we can’t help you, we will do our best to point you in the right direction.
Shamrock is now run mainly by Bob’s family, although he still plays a very active roll. His son Bobby took over General Manager duties in 2005, while his daughter Marion his manages the staff and offices. Daniel, his other son, oversees operations, and his daughter Helen handles all aspects of sales & marketing, while also spearheading our new designer services and programs. As you can see, we truly are a family owned and operated business, and you should be able to reach our office staff for over 10 hours a day 6 days a week. We are also blessed with long term loyal staff: Jose, our Peninsula Regional Manager and Lead Outside Salesperson, and Caitriona, our long time office assistant, who also administrates our storage clients. Not to mention our drivers, helpers, and support office staff. We are lucky to have had some moving crew members for over 20 years, and the average experience of our driver’s is over 15 years in the industry.
In our over 46 years we have seen it all when it comes to moving, and we are still going strong because we have stuck to our core mission of taking care of the customer. Lean on our experience and expertise when it comes to your next moving or storage adventure and you will not be disappointed. Remember also that Word of Mouth from trusted people in your lives is the best way to find a service professional. By all means, use all of the mediums at your disposal, but a trusted recommendation is how we receive over 90% of our business, and we are immensely proud of this.
