275 (Actually Good) Moving Company Name Ideas for 2021

Last year my family and I relocated from sunny Southern California to Idaho. To make the 896 mile move easier, I hired professional moving company to pick up and deliver my sofa, bed, chairs, clothes, tow a vehicle, and load our other personal effects (AKA junk) into our new home. As part of my move, I became friendly with the founder of the moving company and gained valuable insight into the operations this service business.

In the FAQ section below, I share the economics behind the operations and profitability of a moving company based on my conversations with the owner. To move out of our four bedroom house and have my Ford Focus towed, I was charged $6,300 for the service. While this isn’t cheap, I received quotes from other national moving companies that exceeded $10,000 for the same job. As you can see there’s real money to be made.

Upon further research, I discovered moving companies are usually ma-and-pa businesses (aside from the most famous U-Haul and PODS) that are boot strapped in spite of the economic impact of the moving services industry hitting $14 billion in annual value. There’s the opportunity to build a nice cash-flowing business that can support a family for the right operator. Check out these available names for your own new moving business below and dive into the FAQ section for more insight into the numbers and operational challenges of this business.

Mover and Packer Name Ideas

Offering box packing services can increase revenue for this business.

Before you can move, you need to pack everything into big brown moving boxes. Packing boxes requires time and planning to  make sure nothing gets broken during transit. Many movers also provide packing services for an additional fee. The fee depends on how many boxes need to be packed and shipped. The contents of these packages also determine cost for this. While a packing service can provide more revenue for your business, it’s time consuming and can be a challenging service to provide depending on the customer. Some customers will micromanage the packing process making this service a more complex than simply loading and hauling furniture from point A to point B.

Frequently Asked Questions about Starting a Moving Company

How much do moving companies make?

According to the moving company I spoke with based in Idaho, the owner generated approximately $500 per day for every truck on the road. The company regularly sent out five or six trucks per week on four – five day trips.  Moving trucks generally left Idaho on Monday to drive to destinations like Seattle Washington or California. The trucks returned either Thursday or Friday of the same week to complete job an unload the vehicle in Idaho.

Everyones profitability and fees will be a different, but as mentioned previously this is an $14 billion dollar per year industry. Each year millions of Americans move and need help from a professional. There is money to be made within this industry, but if you want to make the big bucks you’ll need to hire employees to help move everything and manage multiple moves and trucks at the same time. Fortunately, this is a business that can be started with a single truck and you as the primary employee as first.

How do you market a moving company?

According to the moving company I worked with, they got most of their business from a couple Facebook groups. There are private Facebook groups dedicated to the subject of moving from California to Idaho. The founder of the moving company said they got enough work out of this one online group to sustain his entire business. Based on this insight, you should look for private Facebook groups that are dedicated to helping people move into or out of your town.

Another place I’ve personally hired smaller movers is through Craigslist. You can post a listing for your moving service on Craigslist for free. This is another smart place to generate leads if you’re staring out.

How much does it cost to hire a moving company?

Anyone selling or buying a home is a potential customer for moving services.

The cost of hiring a company to move house for you depends on where you are in the country, how much stuff the movers will carry, and the distance of the move. Generally, the further the move and the more stuff you own, the more costly the move will.

Across the country, the average cost of a local move start around $1,250. Cross country moves will quickly exceed $10,000 so the company can cover the costs of gas, labor, and time. Other factors also affect the cost, including travel fees, the size and distance of the move, what packing services you require, whether or not you require storage, the cost of boxes and other moving supplies, and the cost of liability coverage to insure your goods. In my most recent move, I gladly paid an additional $500 to have my car towed to my new home.

How much will it cost to start a moving company?

You can get started on a budget. The company I spoke with was renting a Penske truck for only $150 per day. When you book a moving job, you can also schedule the rental of a moving truck.

As you build your business, you can eventually buy a truck to help reduct cost further. But you don’t need to do this in the beginning. Many movers rent the truck and purchase insurance though the rental company in the early days. Otherwise you can put sweat equity to get the business off the ground in the early days and use the free marketing tips provided above.

What are challenges of running a moving company?

Every business faces obstacles of one sort or another. Here are some of the main challenges you’ll face when running a moving company:

  • Hiring / management: If you want to grow beyond a single moving truck, you’ll need to hire employees. Employees come and go overtime. They also need to be well trained in loading / unloading, but also provide quality customer service. Your employees are the face of your company and are essential to your companies growth.
  • Customer service / communication: There’s a lot of communication with every move. First you need to get the details about a move with customers to provide a custom move quote. These move details include how much furniture needs to be move in addition to the address information about the move. Some customers will require more hand holding than others. This is a communication heavy business and you’ll need to be extremely organized to manage the operation of multiple trucks and routes.
  • The unexpected: At some point, a moving truck is going to break down or have a flat tire. You’ll get into an accident with another vehicle. Or an employee may get lost and delay a transport for a customer. These sort of headaches are a part of doing normal business. Make sure to carry good insurance, have tow companies on speed dial, and a cell phone charged at all times in case of emergency.

Moving is a stressful time for any family. You can help relieve this stress for customers by doing the heavy lifting and transportation. According to reports, there are more than 15,000 moving companies in the United States. No matter where you live, there’s almost guaranteed to be demand for a reliable moving company.
