Dean DePietro, President
Barnes Moving & Storage Company
In the 1930’s, Charlie Barnes owned a Sand & Gravel Delivery Business in the Stonington Area and occasionally helped his neighbors move. The demand was so great for moving furniture and household goods, that Charlie obtained his Connecticut State Hauling Authority License #CT 233, (one of the earliest licenses in the State). He located his Company on Route 27 in Mystic, Connecticut, 1/2 mile from the Mystic Seaport.
In 1960, Robert & Frederick Barnes bought the business from their Uncle Charlie and in 1968 Jeffrey Barnes came to work for his father, Fred.
In 1974, they moved to their present location on Route 184, the Goldstar Highway in Mystic, Connecticut and in 1980, they put in a Certified Truck Scale and joined National Van Lines
Carol Barnes came to work for her husband, Bob in the late 1980’s and the four Barnes’s ran the business until Bob Barnes passed away in 1997.
The Business was put up for sale in 1998 and Dean DePietro, then President and Owner of Presidential Van Lines in Providence, Rhode Island, saw the potential due to the location, and purchased the Company in February 1999. Since then, the Company has grown substantially. Barnes Moving & Storage joined Mayflower Transit in 2001 servicing all of Connecticut and Rhode Island. The company proudly serves America’s military by servicing the Naval Submarine Base in Groton, CT and The Newport Naval Station in Newport, RI.
