“I’m super excited we hired His Workmanship for our move today. All four college movers showed up on time and got right to lifting our heavy items. What caught my attention most was the Christian mission of the company. As a believer myself I felt at peace scheduling movers who I knew I could definitely trust. I have already recommended His Workmanship and will continue to do so.” – Lori

These two young men were thorough, professional, courteous, and prompt. In addition, their fees are very reasonable! I’m looking forward to using their service again.
Communication and scheduling was easy and efficient, the young men showed up on time, were polite and completed everything I asked for
The Team did a great job raking leaves and removing weeds. They are very professional and made sure that they understood the job before starting it. They work very hard and are very gracious. I have used them numerous times and always had an excellent experience and outcome.
We cannot say enough good things about My Workmanship. Communication with Eric was clear and fantastic start to finish. The workers, Nate and Evan were prompt, courteous, hardworking and did a fantastic job. We are just thrilled and will definitely recommend this service to others. Thank you.Elizabeth and Alan FletcherMahtomedi, MN
The crew, Nick and Marco, arrived on time. They were courteous and did a really good job. Price was as advertised. Would use them again.
I would definitely hire again. The two young men worked hard to accomplish what I asked them to do.
The crew showed up early and were very kind. They worked very hard and did amazing work!! I will definitely reach out to them again. Enjoy the before and after photos!
I am pleased to relay that my experience with His Workmanship was beyond expectations. With Father's Day this coming weekend, and a couple of cookouts planned, all the planting beds on our property were in desperate need of weeding. Eric's response to my initial inquiry was within minutes and the crew showed up in under 48 hours. Matt, Scott and Rory did a fantastic job and were extremely polite and courteous. Couldn't have asked for a better result in any aspect!
A friend highly recommended His Workmanship and they didn’t disappoint. I hired two workers from 8-1 to lay edging, landscape fabric and rock. Josiah arrived at 8 but his partner didn’t make it until after 9. When I emailed Eric that only Josiah was there, Eric immediately contacted another worker to come out. By 9:30 I had three young men working on my project. They finished up early and when I went to approve it, it was beautifully done. I have more landscaping to do and will hire them again for my next project.
They came early and got to work right away. Before them I made an appointment with another landscaping company our schedule appointment was between 10-12. They called 5hr and 21min latter. No need to say anything else. I placed them on my DNR list. Where one won't do His Workmanship will! Their on my Angie's list.
The two man crew came exactly at the appointed time. They were courteous and completed my job exactly as I asked them to. Great experience!
Exceptional work! Did all that i asked and in a timely manner. Communication was spot on! Highly recommend
These two men helped clean out a lower level office and garage and did a super good job with all the heavy stuff in awkward stuff. they were able to get it all in the dumpster and also helped with smaller items as well.
The work done was excellent; the garden bed was dug up so the weeds were removed, weed control fabric was laid and then mulch. The workers were efficient and worked hard.
His Workmanship went above and beyond to meet our needs. Would recommend, and would select their service in the future!
Thank you, Emilio and Cesar! You were a pleasure to be with and you went above and beyond with kindness and hard work! You both were simply amazing.
I needed quick help to fix a Landscaping issue. I was scheduled quickly. Communication was top notch. Team arrived early and completed what I requested. Highly recommend!
The crew that came was punctual, diligent, and polite. Both were hard workers who asked me for clarification when necessary. They did a good job, and the areas being worked on look great! They went above and beyond with the task. I would welcome them back in the future.
His Workmanship did an excellent job for us. Arrived on time and finished on time! Will definitely use them for our future landscaping needs!
Very helpful staff and responded immediately to my email request. Damion and Sebastian were so wonderful and checked in to ask questions when needed. I really appreciate all the work they accommplished!

Ready to inquire about truck unloading in Columbus?

Frequently Asked Questions

The overall cost is based on a variety of factors, but the main components to weigh (no pun intended) are: the size of the moving truck, how full it was loaded, how many oversized items are inside, specialized equipment like moving straps or a furniture dolly, elevator availability, number of stairs up or down, and whether or not there is a ramp available on the moving truck. All things being equal, it usually costs between $400 – $500 to unload a 26 ft truck, $300 – $400 to unload a 20 ft truck and $250 – $300 to unload a 16 ft truck. You will have gotten a good deal if the cost to unload a moving truck falls within these price ranges.
It really depends on factors such as: the size of the truck, heavy items in the truck, how organized the truck was packed, how many stairs to go up or down, whether an elevator is available, how strong and fast the movers are, and even weather conditions like extreme heat or slippery ice/snow. But in general, it usually takes 4-5 hours for 2 movers to unload a 26 foot truck, 3 hours for 2 movers to help unload a 20 foot truck and 2 hours for 2 movers to unload a 16 foot moving truck. If your job ends up taking any longer than this, you should begin to think about whether or not the movers are going slow on purpose, perhaps to “milk the clock” for more money.
It would be wise to book 4 movers for medium to large jobs, especially ones that involve heavier items. An even number of movers (like 2 or 4) is more efficient than an odd number of movers (1 or 3), since some items will require one or two persons on each side. For items that weigh 200 pounds or more, having 4 movers will allow there to be 2 movers on each side which will distribute the weight to just 50 pounds per mover. If you have a decent amount of strength and are willing to assist for the whole duration of the move, then that would be the only situation where I’d recommend hiring an odd number of movers.
If you just hire movers to help unload the truck, then you don’t need to buy them food because it shouldn’t take more than 3-4 hours to complete the labor-only moving service. However, if you hire a moving company for a full service move, then getting a meal for the movers after they load and before they begin unloading is pretty standard in the industry. That said, considerate moving companies will bring their own lunch just in case, so as not to impose upon the customers voluntary generosity. In short, food is appreciated but not expected. It doesn’t need to be a gourmet meal either. Homemade meals like sandwiches are common, assuming you have dishes and silverware unpacked and available. Otherwise, fast food delivery like pizza or subs provide a quick and easy lunch.
The advantages to a storage container are: lowest cost, no driving necessary, free storage of items, and smaller size options. The disadvantages are: limited delivery timeframes, unable to transport large vehicles, and parking challenges. The benefits of a moving truck are: variety of truck lengths, car towing options, and ability to park on the street. The negatives are: no storage option, you must drive the truck, and more expensive pricing. To learn more, I encourage you to read my in-depth blog titled Pros and Cons: Moving Truck vs. Storage Container.
The two biggest players in the moving truck industry are U-Haul and Penske. U-Haul has the most locations nationwide and charges $39.95 for a 17 ft truck (or bigger), $29.95 for a 15 ft truck and $19.95 for a 10 ft truck. Each of these three truck options also charges $0.99 cents per mile driven. Penske partners with Home Depot so has trucks available at any Home Depot location. Penske charges $209 for a 16 ft truck or $249 for a 22 ft truck and offers free unlimited miles. For a long distance move (more than 100 miles) you should go with Penske. For a local move (less than 100 miles) U-Haul will be your best choice.
If you live on a high floor of a building that has an elevator available, then yes, you should reserve it for the movers unloading your items. You’ll need to call the concierge to make the reservation before you book the movers. You should be able to reserve the elevator for a 3-4 hour window of time. The apartment may even hang protective blankets in the elevator to prevent scratches or other damages. Best of all, there’s no charge associated with an elevator reservation. If you accidentally forget to reserve the elevator, then your movers will need to use the stairs. This will cause them to expend more energy and take more time, which will lead to both disgruntled movers and a higher cost for the consumer.
Yes, all things considered equal, it’s usually twice as fast to unload a moving truck as compared to loading one. Why? The main reason is because there’s no need to spend all that time packing your items in an organized way to preserve truck space (think Tetris). You won’t need to spend time tying down or wrapping up your items either. The only thing that may cause truck unloading to take longer than loading would be if there are many stairs to bring the items up or long hallways in the apartment or condo. However, if you reserve an elevator, then that will solve the stairs problem. If the movers provide a four wheel dolly, then that will solve the hallway problem.
Before you start unloading your storage container or moving truck, you should have a good idea of where everything goes inside your new residence. It’s most strategic to start with the items that need to go upstairs or downstairs. Then you can finish off on the main floor. However, this would require you to have packed the truck accordingly so be sure to think ahead before you start packing. Oh, and don’t forget: try to unpack dishes, silverware and other kitchen utensils first. That will afford you the opportunity to cook some food for the movers. This will provide them with additional energy to unload the remaining items in your storage container or moving truck. Check out my blog if you want more information on how to Unload a Moving Truck like a Pro.
Here are 15 questions to ask moving companies before you decide to hire movers to unload your truck. 1. Are you licensed? 2. Do you have insurance? 3. Do you offer written estimates? 4. Can you provide references? 5. What is your cancellation policy? 6. How long might the move take? 7. Do you offer packing services? 8. Do you require a deposit? 9. Are there any additional fees? 10. Does the clock start at my residence or your office? 11. Can you guarantee my moving date? 12. Do you provide storage? 13. What payment methods do you accept? 14. Are the movers employees or contractors? 15. Is this company a broker or a carrier? Click here to get a free truck unloading estimate from His Workmanship.

My name is Corey and I heard about His Workmanship from my soccer coach at Northwestern University. One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about this opportunity is the chance to meet so many different customers for each project. This really helps me grow in my social skills and prepares me for better customer service in whatever full-time career I choose. Plus, the pay is much higher than what I’d get from other non-skilled labor work during the summer season when I’m not in school.
