A-1 Pioneer has earned the recognition of being the official local movers of the State of Utah for over fourteen years. Because of the company’s stellar reputation, they have moved the State of Utah Archives, Horace Sorenson’s collection of Pioneer Village to Lagoon, and collections (on-going) at the University of Utah Marriott Library. In addition, they moved the Utah Jazz to the Delta Center in a weekend, and Morris Travel employees (425) without disruption in its 24/7 reservation service. O.C. Tanner recently selected A-1 Pioneer to move its prized retail jewelry store, and the movers accomplished it with no damage to the fine objects of art sold there!


A “wow” factor now adorns each of the A-1 Pioneer moving trucks. Ordinary trucks have been turned into “smile” generators as stunning Utah scenery. Photographs by award-winning photographer John Telford are displayed on the sides of three of its forty-five moving vans. Plans are ongoing to complete decorating the fleet. This is only the beginning of the high-quality innovations that are provided by A-1 Pioneer. A full-time, never casual, salt lake moving company with 100% access to President, Douglas E. Bagley.  There are a few conveniences that are provided to customers. For example, they loan wardrobe cartons at no cost to customers. As well as having air-filled bladders to protect items in drawers. Additionally, A-1 Pioneer was the first Utah moving company to offer portable self-storage units. Equally important they provide a portable forklift to move the storage units from the warehouse to people’s driveways.

Our warehouse is designed to pamper furniture with heat and air conditioning. Containers are wood, which does not heat up like metal containers. A-1 Pioneer has the only cantilever shelving system in Utah for the storage of sofas, chairs, and upholstered furniture. For instance, every item is shrink-wrapped and clearly separated from other items. Kitchens are the core of the home. Over one million people have had the opportunity to have their entire kitchen, on a local level, back on the shelf within an hour and a half. This also is including drive time. Not only is this innovation, but we are also about assisting people.


Quality for A-1 Moving and Storage means superior service. Likewise, they provide skilled salt lake movers and only use top equipment. Equally important is their generous sharing of the company assets in service to others. Further, in order to better serve Utahans and to promote our state, to our knowledge, we are the first company to wrap a commercial van with Utah scenes. We celebrate Utah’s beauty. Mike Deaver at the Utah Tourism Department said, “I’m glad he (Bagley) has that kind of passion. If every company got that passionate and tried to promote the state like that, who knows what we could do?”
