Let’s Talk

Our History

AMWAT is the acronym for “A Man With A Truck,” which started in 1997; true to its name, it was a one-man operation out of Dean Pugh’s spare bedroom, executing local moves with a pick-up truck and trailer. Shortly after starting the business, it moved into a small warehouse, acquired three moving trucks, and hired six employees.

Gloria Pugh joined the company in 2005 and the collaboration quickly had a positive impact. The company restructured and obtained authority from the United States Department of Transportation to cross state lines. In June 2008, A Man With A Truck acquired the largest and oldest moving company in the area, moved into its new, two-warehouse facility, and rebranded to AMWAT Moving Warehousing Storage. Shortly thereafter, AMWAT became an agent for Wheaton World Wide Moving and obtained military facility certification.

AMWAT evolved from a small, local moving business to a transportation, logistics, warehousing, and storage company handling a wide range of commodities, from household and commercial goods to art exhibits and scientific equipment. (We do not handle hazardous materials.)

AMWAT is a one-stop-shop for all our clients’ moving, storage and warehousing needs. We can move just about anything anywhere in the world!
