Sandy at a Glance
Sandy Movers and ShakersEarly settlers and miners saw potential in a cozy stretch of land at the base of the Wasatch Mountains over 140 years ago. What began as an agricultural community blossomed into a mining town; but when the mines failed, Sandy’s fate was uncertain. Today, all 95,000 residents of Sandy are quite certain of their town’s success as Utah’s fifth largest community. Your Sandy movers of All My Sons Moving & Storage are sure you will enjoy Salt Lake City’s southern neighbor as well.

The awards are yet another example of how Sandy’s community, recreational opportunities, valued education and ideal business climate come together to create a great home for any family or business planning a move to Sandy.
