    Well I have to say I was a little on edge and worried about my move because Ken was so busy, but once we confirmed a day and time I was more relieved of how it would go! Ken was extremely peasant and careful all the way thru. I moved my things from Watsonville to Elk Grove it was a very long day and the price was extremely affordable (under 500.00). I had some help but he showed up with a helper and I was happy! Thank you Ken! And thanks for your patience! Mary

    Ken did a nice job. Moving sucks, especially long distance. My possessions, belongings and property all made it. I recommend his services.

About this pro

Have you ever gone to the grocery store and the bag boy put your eggs and tomatoes on the bottom and then put your canned goods on top of them? Sadly, a lot of other movers that I hear about are no better when it comes to packing your items into a truck. I take care to deal with your items as if they were my own. My background is in transporting antiques, so that means that I am used to dealing with fragile and expensive items. It's not about how quick you can load a truck, it's about how well. Also, unlike some other movers, I am up-front about all of my charges and fees. I don't surprise you at the end of the job with "extra charges," so long as you don't surprise me with undisclosed difficulties. What I like most about my job is the people that I meet, the places that I go, and the freedom of being my own boss. I especially enjoy the long distance moves, especially when the job ends in a place that's fun to be in.

Q & A

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
    Most of my work for the general public is priced based on an hourly charge, fuel cost, and other related expenses. It is usually very simple and up-front. For larger moving jobs, if I have to rent a larger truck, then there are also those related expenses.
  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
    Experience is it's own education.
  • How did you get started doing this type of work?
    I was working as a part-time Jr High School science teacher and wasn't making enough money to get by. I randomly came across an acquaintance who I saw loading antiques from an antique mall. He apparently had a transport business. I asked if he ever needed any help? He said yes, and I went from helping load, to driving, and eventually buying my own truck. I decided that I liked doing this better than teaching Jr High. 10 years later I'm still truckin.
