Hello again

Rick Evangelista

I wanted to tell you a little more about myself and share with you our company’s philosophy.

I was born and raised in Wakefield, MA and graduated from high school in 1967. At that time, if you didn’t have a plan for your life, “Uncle Sam” did. After a three year stint in the army and one tour of duty in Viet Nam. I still didn’t have a plan and spent the next two years working for a local moving company and learning the skills of a heavy machinery rigger. I found work with a new company being formed to handle the warehousing and distibution of sensitive equipment for Xerox. As Xerox grew this company also experienced significant growth and I worked my way up from the warehouse to Vice President.

I fell in love with Maine after visting friends on Mount Desert Island one summer. My wife and I packed up the kids and the dog, sold our house and made the move to Mount Desert. There was only one problem... I couldn’t find a job. With money running low, I took the advice of a friend who suggested that I start a local moving company — and so Norumbega Moving and Storage Company was formed.

Although we have now been in business for more than 19 years our focus on customer service has always remained the same. I always tell our employees that when they perform their jobs they are “creating customers for life”, and a significant portion of our work is now repeat business. In Maine reputation is everything; and I am very proud of the reputation we have established over the years. I am truly blessed to have good people working for our company and our clients often tell me how wonderful our staff has been to them.

Whether you are moving “across the Island... around the world” we will give you our best. Please give us a call.
