In 1964, Globe’s President and Founder, Vincent Cibrano, presented a blueprint for success to his employees:
This formula proved to be the foundation of which Globe Storage & Moving Co. was built upon, and it quickly allowed us to ascend to the forefront of New York City’s competitive commercial moving and storage industry. Globe’s ingenuity was most evident in 1969 when, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, one of New York City’s largest legal firms, presented a unique challenge to all prospective moving companies: to come up with a method of relocating their large library and records departments, without the client losing accessibility to these items during the extensive packing and preparation phase.
Globe responded to this unique requirement with the development of the mobile carrier; a five-shelved bookcase on wheels. As a result, librarians and file room personnel maintained access to books and records up to the time just prior to their relocation. Soon after, with the resounding success of the Paul, Weiss relocation, the mobile carrier became the industry standard for all library and file room moves.
From that successful experience, Globe established a reputation as the industry leader in law firm relocations, undertaking similar projects in the ensuing years for such prominent firms as Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom; Debevoise & Plimpton; Stroock, Stroock & Lavan; and Cadwalder, Wickersham & Taft.
While we did initially receive widespread recognition for our work in the legal sector – and, to this day, we still remain the premier choice for a majority of the largest law firms in New York City – the legal field is but one industry that we have lent our moving expertise to.
For over half a century, Globe has proudly partnered with companies that range from powerhouse financial institutions, such as Goldman Sachs, to publishing giants like McGraw Hill & Companies.
Today, our success reflects back to what Vincent Cibrano was looking to accomplish when he decided to go into business over fifty years ago. With Globe remaining family owned and operated since our inception, Mr. Cibrano’s vision has remained alive, and continues to be the values in which we pride ourselves on.
Though Globe has now reached into the second and third generation of family members, the goal remains the same: provide a superior moving and storage service with honesty and integrity, and make pride and hard work the cornerstone of our business.
