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! MarySep 7, 2016Verified
Ken did a nice job. Moving sucks, especially long distance. My possessions, belongings and property all made it. I recommend his services.Dec 29, 2015Verified

Ken Rodgers was very responsive to my request. He completed the job (studio apt furniture move within Sunnyvale) within the 2 hours limit he quoted.Jan 29, 2015Verified
Moved a French vitrine and arrived timely and in perfect condition. Was clean, friendly and very professional. Also accomodating, he arranged and included a move for my friend as well on the same day.Dec 31, 2014Verified
- 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.
