“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

His Workmanship crew was very prompt, thorough, and cooperative. Very happy with the work they did - will hire them again!
We were so pleased with the quality of the work , we have asked them back to do more work !
This is the 2nd time I have had His Workmanship crew out, and the 2nd time they did a wonderful job weeding and cutting - very happy! Very polite and very thorough. I have a larger yard than I thought! Thanks again!
The guys pulled weeds and totally cleaned out my flower bed on my patio. Very good job, and fast.
Arrived on time, communication with the crew was clear, and they accomplished everything contracted in the time expected. Will use again for next project.
This is a great little company to work with! From scheduling to the completion, all His Workmanship employees are kind, courteous and the utmost professional. I will definitely be calling on them to help with more projects. They arrived on the scheduled day and time and worked like they were working on their own homes.GREAT experience! I highly recommend His Workmanship!
We were so pleased with this company and the workers that came to our house!!! All around 5 stars!!!
Highly recommend Workmanship to help clean up your garden and flower beds! Excellent service, attitude and care for meeting your needs. Eric is extremely prompt with response and Matt along with his partner worked hard to complete an overwhelming project I couldn’t personally accomplish. The best compliment I can give is, I’ll be hiring them for return visit.
Amazing team, amazing communication, and a stellar job done by all. I can’t say enough good things about working with His Workmanship. Communication with Eric was exceptional. He promptly responded to our request for quote, followed up by scheduling our job within a week, and never left us hanging or wondering about our job status. We had a team of 4 guys for 8 hours to clean up a completely overgrown and out-of-control property. The team arrived promptly, listened carefully, and did everything that was asked of them. They worked well together as a group and individually. It was hot, and we had so many bushes, trees, and shrubs that needed to be removed as well as lots of weeding and mulching. They worked steadily from 9am until 5pm, and cleaned up nicely before they left. Highly recommend this company!
This company is professional and very prompt to respond and super nice guys as well. They did a great job with weeding and edging our beds. Will be doing business with them again!
The workers arrived promptly & immediately began what I had hired them to do. They worked efficiently & cleaned up after they were done.
The guys did an excellent job and finished weeding and mulching faster than expected! Would 100% hire again. 🙂
Cleanup of last year’s garden and completion of all the new planting accomplished in one visit by two very nice people. I strongly recommend this service.
Great work and great young men!! Highly recommend!
Getting appt set up was very easy. Workers were very friendly, helpful and worked fast. Did a very good job!
The guys had great communication, showed up on time, were friendly and completed the task. I highly recommend His Workmanship
The crew made quick work of cleaning up my over-grown yard. From the first step to completion, the His Workmanship team was responsive, professional, and efficient. I will definitely use them again and happily recommend them.
The team was friendly & thorough. They arrived on time and were very professional. Thanks for doing a great job weeding our overgrown flower beds.
I use His Workmanship in the Village of Summit. My projects have been to weed my many planting beds on a large property. The crew requires some training and direction by me; they are not landscape professionals. Once that was done, the crew (2) were hard working, professional and completed my requested work.Projects have been a bit difficult to schedule based on my calendar and His Workmanship crew availability but so far we have been able to work that out.I plan on continuing to use His Workmanship. They have a unique service that allows me, the customer, to define a project scope, like weeding, that can be difficult to find providers - and all at a reasonable cost.
Very professional - hard workers. Well worth the money.

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.
