Family-owned and deeply local
Larsen Transfer has a rooted history in the Inland Northwest. We are a small family-owned company with a deep sense of belonging. Larsen Transfer was originally known as Penland Brothers. It was one of the first moving companies located west of the Mississippi with locations in the state of Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Brothers Evan and Darvelle Larsen purchased the company in the early 1960’s and changed the name to Larsen Transfer, Inc. They became an agent for United Van Lines and expanded to Richland, WA. Douglas and LaRayne Jackson purchased the Richland, WA and Pendleton, OR agencies in August 1978. They kept the name Larsen Transfer and Incorporated in 1979, making the official name Tri-City United, Inc., DBA Larsen Transfer Company.
As a local, small, family-owned and operated company, we are deeply embedded into the fabric of the communities we serve. We believe wholeheartedly that communities are made better by caring business owners. That is why we are committed to make our company a great place to work, and our community a great place to live. We try, as much as we can, to support organizations and causes doing important work in the Tri-Cities and beyond.
