We started in 1970 with a single moving truck and a small crew. We have since grown to a fleet of over 70 power units, 500,000 square feet of warehouse space, and 130 motivated, customer service-oriented team members.
1970 – Established as a local family moving business, Central Maine Moving & Storage — now MaineMoving — provides Maine with quality service for residential, commercial, industrial, and government relocation.
1978 – Expanded services by becoming an award-winning agent for North American Van Lines, providing worldwide, award-winning moving services, and forming Consolidated Warehouse (now operated under Lynch Logistics) to serve our growing storage customers.
1986 – Lynch Logistics, full-truckload freight transportation, and warehousing business is created under the same ownership to increase capacity for Maine’s commercial, manufacturing, and industrial businesses. Lynch Logistics operates dry van and flatbed trucking service throughout the Eastern United States and Eastern Canada. It offers warehousing and distribution services for storage-in-transit and cross-docking.
1995 – Based on increased demand for secure file storage, created Records Management Center (RMC) to handle specialized confidential file storage and information management activities for the healthcare sector. RMC quickly expanded into paper shredding, media destruction, document scanning, and dedicated courier services throughout New England.
2000’s to Today – Continued fleet and warehouse growth among all divisions. We opened a facility in Auburn, Maine, to provide increased Central and Southern Maine coverage. It includes five full-time personnel, inside and outside storage, cross-docking, rail siding, and centralized baling for our mobile shredding fleet.

These acquisitions significantly increased the size and scope of our existing NAID AAA Certified on-site and off-site confidential shredding services provided throughout Maine and New Hampshire. They significantly enhance our customers’ capabilities. This allows us to provide a wider array of information management and destruction services with greater reach.
This Federal legislation went into effect in 2000. The privacy provisions in the law require that financial institutions and insurance companies give consumers prior notice of an intention to share personal information and a chance to opt-out of the sharing of such information.
The law states that these institutions and companies need to “respect the privacy of its customers and to protect the security and confidentiality of those customers’ non-public information.” The language suggested in the Safeguard Rule that paper documents containing such personal information should also be protected and safely destroyed.
In general, the Act amends the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) to enhance consumer reports’ accuracy. It allows consumers to exercise greater control regarding the type and amount of marketing solicitations they receive. FACT Act also establishes uniform national standards in key areas of regulation regarding handling and disposal of consumer information in possession of all companies and organizations.
HIPAA was enacted in 1996. The mandatory compliance date was April 14, 2003. All hospitals, doctors, pharmacies, health plans, medical billing companies, and any other business entity involved in the healthcare industry must comply. The rules apply to all protected health information.
The Standard for Privacy of Identifiable Health Information requires that covered entities put administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the privacy of protected health information. One example of a safeguard for the proper disposal of paper documents containing protected health information is that the documents should be shredded before disposal.
This law was established in 1974 to ensure government agencies protect individuals’ and businesses’ privacy about information held by them and hold these agencies liable for any information released without proper authorization.
The Economic Espionage Act is a very powerful law. It helps with the enforcement of properly handling information. This law is the first federal law that defines and severely punishes misappropriation and theft of trade secrets.
However, according to this Act, the government only protects companies who take “reasonable measures” to safeguard their information. For more information about us, please contact RMC today at 1-877-752-3609!
