About Us

McCollister’s Global Services, INC is a privately held asset-based, white glove, specialized transportation provider founded in 1945 in Burlington, NJ, by Daniel H. McCollister. Those days in 1945, McCollister’s was a small regional household mover, but strategic plans were in place for growth. As United Van Lines began to reorganize, the opportunity opened up for McCollister’s to become an agent in 1950.

During the early years of the 1950s and now a stockholder in United Van Lines, McCollister expanded the physical operations to an 8,000-square-foot warehouse and three docks to accommodate the growing business. During this decade, McCollister’s grew rapidly, acquiring over a dozen over-the-road tractor-trailers and several straight trucks. The company begins a new service in moving weather-weary Northeast residents to Florida using 35-foot vans. For a brief time, McCollister changed affiliations to Mayflower Transit, another well-known household goods carrier but returned to United Van Lines in 1961. 

During the 1960s, there were continued acquisitions and growth. In January of 1962, McCollister’s purchased Viles Motor Service and began McCollister’s Express, a local freight company serving the tri-state area, to balance the seasonality of the traditional household goods moving business. McCollister’s Express continued to operate until it was sold in 1969.

More significant growth came in the 1970s as a direct result of the technology boom. H. Daniel McCollister took over the business from his father and built the company into a national leader in transportation, warehousing, and logistics. Dan’s efforts and involvement solidified the partnership as an agent-owner between McCollister’s and United Van Lines.  This partnership positions McCollister as one of the largest revenue-producing agents in the nation for UniGroup INC., which operates United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit. 

Today as we embark on a new chapter, President & Chairman, Daniel H. McCollister II is committed to carrying forward the tradition of excellence and integrity that has defined McCollister’s for generations. With a focus on innovation, efficiency, and customer satisfaction, we look to even greater heights in the logistics industry.

McCollister’s headquarters remain in Burlington, NJ, and we continue to operate as a family-owned, privately held company. Our full-service United Van Lines and Mayflower agent locations are placed in strategic markets with over 13 fully operational warehouses. McCollister’s continues to specialize in offering exceptional solutions for handling and transporting the common, the unique, and hard-to-service items, with service fleet, drivers, and in-house team members that provide outstanding service.
