We make moving as simple as possible...

I’m Chris Jolma, founder and owner of MTB. I started this 10 years ago as an emergency side job when my wife became pregnant with our first child. But then it turned into a full-time gig.

Back then it was just me and a little pickup truck and sometimes a buddy helping out. Since then we’ve gained a large, helpful crew and a fleet of trucks.

Since MTB grew up outside of the moving industry, we didn’t pick up a lot of its bad habits. We just help our customers quickly get their moves over with – simply, with no tricks and everything included in one affordable price.

And we’ve done it well over 15,000 times.

With more than 1,000 five-star reviews and A-ratings onYelp and Angie’s List, we seem to be doing something right.

Thanks for stopping by your buddy’s place. We’d be happy to show you the MTB way to move!

I had no idea what I was missing.


By the time we made it to the new place, they had already unloaded half of the stuff, and put their interior design expertise to good use. We haven’t moved any furniture from where they put it. Things that weren’t as we’d planned……read more

5-Star Yelp Review | April E. | 4.13.15

After I needed to move with very short notice, these guys responded quickly and provided a simple basic quote. Other companies were charging truck/gas fees and more per hour. Plus, after the first hour, they charge in quarterly hour increments which is nice so you don't feel like you're being

5-Star Yelp Review | Maya H. | 8.1.17

If I could give 10 stars instead of only 5, I would.  These guys (Elmer, Walter, and Isaac) were not only super helpful and friendly, but they dealt with me having to cancel on them at the last minute (sorry, guys: mean people suck!) and reschedule-- TWICE.   I work as
