He worked at a local moving company and at 21 years old purchased his first tractor-trailer and performed long distance moving. After several years, Thomas took time off to further his education and El Camino College and then transferred to UCLA. After graduation, he was looking to purchase a small moving company. Tom wanted begin raising a family where he did not have to be out on the road. He heard through the family, that his aunt Pat was looking to sell Walsh Moving.

And he recruited his older two brothers, Chuck & Richard, to help with maintenance and long distance driving. In 2004, Tom became the sole owner when Harry passed away.

I’m on a tight budget so it was important to get an estimate that was as accurate as possible with quality movers. Thomas at Walsh Moving took a detailed account of what I needed moved and explained their pricing and estimate well. They were extremely efficient and got the job done right. Competitively priced, detailed & accurate estimate, professional, and efficient. The final cost was $165 less than the estimate!
