Truckin’ Movers Corporation

Truckin' Movers Corporation

Be the first to review

Our Journey Begins

On October 22, 1976, with $300 and a lot of hope, two college friends launched Truckin’ Movers Corporation. Their goal was to produce higher quality moves for a lot less money. They believed that a local, family-owned and operated full-service moving company would be better suited to providing personalized customer care than the big-name companies which at the time dominated the industry.

Overcoming Industry Challenges

Back in the 1970s, the moving industry was heavily regulated by both State and Federal governments. By limiting the number of business licenses issued to movers and enforcing strict territory boundaries, regulations prevented competition in the moving industry and kept the cost of moving artificially high. Pioneering a unique concept in long-distance moving, Truckin’ Movers was able to legally circumvent government regulations.

Custom Commercial Moving and Storage Solutions

Serving Durham, RTP, Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, and Surrounding Areas

Moving an office, technology center, or warehouse takes more than a truck and some muscle. Even the simplest commercial move needs to be well organized. Unlike residential movers, no one person knows the contents of every employee of the company. Additionally, medical facilities and high-tech companies have much more expensive property that needs special care when moving.

Specialized Commercial Moving Services

  • Pack-and-Store: We pack your contents on our tractor trailers and store them in our secured lot until you need them to arrive at their destination.
  • Containerized Moving: We pack your contents in our company containers, making it efficient for moving to several destinations.
  • LTL Carriers: By using containerized packing, our team can easily pack (and unpack) your contents on another semi hauling less than a full truckload.
  • Private Moving Partners: Sometimes it is more efficient to use one of our partner moving companies with whom we have developed relationships over the past 40 years.

Why Choose Us?

Our outstanding reputation is just one of the reasons why UNC, Duke, and NC State moving teachers and other professionals rely on us for everything from local distance move to logistical support and everything in between.


Q What truck size do you use ?

For local moves, the trucks we use are the largest trucks you can get with only two axles. They are like the largest size U-haul truck, only a little longer and taller. For long-distance moves, we use many different sizes of straight trucks and tractor-trailers. Most of the time we use straight trucks and half-sized 28’ long semi-trailers that can get close to most locations. Our goal is to use equipment that can get close enough to your home so that a shuttle-truck, and hence double-handling of your items, is not required.

Q Do you bring pad for the furniyure ?

Yes, most definitely! We make certain the moving crew always has more pads than needed. Proper padding is the key to a damage-free move. We are very thorough with the padding, and the charge for padding material is already included in our moving rates.

Q Will the movers place the furniture where I want in my new home ?

Yes, absolutely. Please decide in advance where the furniture will be placed. Our guys are happy to put it exactly where you want, but to keep the move on schedule they only want to put each piece down one time.

Q Will you disassemble and reassemble the furniture ?

Yes, but only when necessary. Please let us know what you need disassembled and reassembled and we will include this service in your move price. There are some set exceptions to this. We recommend that the customer take apart and reassemble any cribs. Items like home gyms, pool tables, and play-sets are best handled by the vendor from whom they were purchased. Also please be aware that our movers only reassemble items that they have disassembled.

Q What do you do If it rains during my phone ?

It is very rare that rain will actually stop us from completing a move. The crew has cloth pads, and will keep the furniture covered and carpets protected. This allows us to continue moving in moderate to light rain.In a hard downpour the crew will try to take a lunch break until the rain slows down or stops. If the crew must wait on the job site for the rain to lighten up, that wait time is charged at 1/2 the hourly rate -- we only need to cover the cost of the movers during this time.
