More on our Moving Services
We began as a small family owned and operated trucking proprietorship in 1964. Back then, there were just a handful of employees and a small fleet of trucks. Under the leadership of our enterprising founder Dennis Doehl, we have grown into three key services: moving, freight and storage.
In 1970, we became an agent of the world class Atlas Van Lines system. We’re proud to say that in 1993 we were one of the first moving companies to receive their “Quality in Motion Award”. Since 1970, Jay’s has grown into one of Atlas's largest independent agents and earned us many sales records. Our affiliation with Atlas Van Lines gives us access to a network of movers across North America.
Jay’s purchased a general merchandise freight operation servicing four towns in the Saskatoon area in 1978. A year later we established the first ever overnight general freight line service between Saskatoon and Regina.
By the time Jay’s celebrated 25 years in 1989, we had acquired many moving and freight companies and expanded our offices in the Prairie Provinces. We became one of the original investors in the Atlas Van Lines container program with the purchase of 38 containers, a program that continues today. Our acquisition of Regina Cartage & Storage expanded our commercial warehousing capabilities.
At 35 years in business in 1999, Jay's founder, Dennis Doehl, was awarded the Trailmobile Service to Industry Award. The turn of the century saw the launch of our website. It also brought more recognition for our efforts at providing superior freight and moving services. Since then, Dennis Doehl was inducted into the Saskatchewan Transportation Hall of Fame in 2004, Jay’s Group of Companies has become one of Saskatchewan’s Top 100 Companies and is recognized among Regina’s Top 50 Companies.
Where We Are Now
At almost 50 years of service, we continue to expand our moving, freight and storage capabilities in order to better serve our customers. We have grown in size and our service quality has grown with us. New acquisitions, business expansion, the introduction of latest technology, modern van lines, spacious warehouses, government-approved storage facilities and top-of-the-line equipment, all serve a singular purpose -- to satisfy our customers completely.
On June 1, 2013, Jay’s was purchased by Mullen Group Ltd. Jay’s continues operate as a standalone business within Mullen Group. We look forward to this new chapter in our history and to continuing to provide the very best in freight, moving and storage services to all our clients.
