About Us

For your protection, all moving companies are required — by law — to be licensed at the State and (if applicable) Federal levels. Our New Hampshire ID# is 30232-3, our Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA) # is 210-983, and our US DOT # is 490801. This assures you that we are accountable per federal and state regulations.

In addition to conducting all aspects of our business “above board”, our philosophy is to leave each customer feeling fully satisfied with their move. In practice, we aim to exceed your expectations.

Our staff members are well-screened before they’re hired, and trained before they’re sent out to work on any move. Many of our employees have been with us for years, and through their on-the-job example, new staff learns to take our standards seriously and to put them into practice. That’s one reason we have so many happy (and repeat) customers. We insist on (and test to insure) a drug and alcohol free environment, and we routinely check the skills of all staff to ensure you have a safe and efficient move.

We’re also involved in supporting the communities we serve through sponsorships and donations, including contributions to the Concord Chapter of the American Red Cross, regional fire and police departments, Familystrength, Riverbend Community Mental Health Services, the NH ACLU — to name just a few. We are members of the Better Business Bureau, the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce, the Laconia Chamber of Commerce, the American Moving and Storage Association, and other industry-related organizations.

You’ll meet members of our crews during your move, but below is the team that sets the standards and keeps the operation moving smoothly — and the people you’re most likely to talk with when you call:

Michael Stamm, President

With over 30 years experience in the moving business, this is Mike’s second successful moving business. It was Mike who came up with the company name, at a time when he was involved in regional theater. He thought a moving company would be just the ticket for him and fellow actors to earn income during the day, leaving evenings and weekends free for rehearsals and performances. Unfortunately (or fortunately!) the actors didn’t like heavy lifting! Nevertheless, when the company showed signs of viability, Mike tapered off his acting career and has been the company’s president since he founded it in 1987. He was previously founder and president of Moishe’s Transfer in Los Angeles, California.

Kevin Gathercole, Operations Manager

Kevin joined Starving Artists as a mover in 1997, bringing with him a wealth of experience in customer service and supervisory skills. He soon graduated to Foreman, and in 2000 he was promoted to Operations Manager, a position he holds to this day. Kevin, a life-long resident of New Hampshire, brings to Starving Artists an old-fashioned integrity and forthrightness that benefits — and is appreciated by — both staff and clients.

When you phone us, you’ll likely be speaking with either Mike or Kevin, and we look forward to hearing from you!
