    I searched for a long time and can't really find those fonts.

    the "SHARPY MOVERS" has similarities to Friz Quadrata and Agora BQ Volume

    You can use the identifont "Fonts by Similarity" to see if there is something closer.

    I actually think someone took a font and changed it for the first line of type on your sample (and it looks like it was done in the 1980s).

    The second line is a "brush" script - similar to hand painted signage. I found some simlar ones here:

    The third line and the phone number are some kind of "black" italic font:

    Sorry I couldn't find the exact fonts - very frustrating (but I really think that logo was done a long time ago - and on their website they said they have been in business for over 25 years, so that may explain it!)  Thanks for accepting my answer.
