In 1914 J.M. Coleman founded the Company in Hutchinson, Kansas under the name Merchants Transfer and Storage. He began with four dray wagons, eight horses, and a desire for success. Success then as now meant service, as our early advertisements attested: "Courteous men at your service night and day." Over the past 93 years our company has undergone many changes that have forged our company into a strong and dependable force in the moving and storage industry.
Today we have over 40.. company owned offices in 15 states and 1 U.S. Territory, and more than 400 agents throughout the world. Covan operates over 200 interstate operating units with another 600 units utilized for local and short haul activity. In 1914 this company was family owned and built on excellent service, dependability and trust. Today Covan is a family owned corporation that is driven by providing the same level of service, dependability and trust in which it was founded some 95 years ago.
