“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

The guys showed up early, worked hard without a break, and did a wonderful job. Our yard looks amazing now and they saved us hours of backbreaking work. Best money I've spent in a while.
This was my first time hiring His Workmanship. I will definitely use them again. Grant and Bryant were on time and called ahead to check due to bad weather. Their work was outstanding! Thank you so much.
Great service, Great job! Will hire again
I was very pleased with the workmanship and integrity of this group! Mason and Gavin were committed to doing a good job of clearing a heavily weeded area with decorative rock and lots of dirt beneath to put down a new fabric barrier. They then replaced the decorative rocks. They did a great job and I am happy with the outcome! I would not hesitate to recommend this group to others needing hard tasks accomplished.
Showed up on time- worked hard and very conscientious! Will use them again! Worth every dollar

His Workmanship was excellent to work with. The two guys that were sent to help with our move were prompt and very courteous. They worked hard the whole time. I would definitely recommend this company when you need someone to help load a truck!
Scott and his team did a really good job getting me moved into my new home. They showed up for work on time and were very courteous and professional, I look forward to the next time I use their services again.Thanks Team!!!!
Great experience with His Workmanship. They responded to my request promptly, got me scheduled quickly, and then sent a great crew that worked diligently to finish a yard project that we needed help with. Would certainly recommend, and also consider using again.
The crew arrived earlier than I had planned but got started working anyway and were already working on the areas that I needed done. The two men were very pleasant and friendly. They did everything I asked and put my.tools and wheelbarrows back where they belonged. Will definitely use them again!
I would highly recommend this team! I sent in an email request and heard back from them in less than 24 hours for a quote. Very pleased with their landscaping work and communication.
The boys who came to weed for me were so pleasant and got right to work. They even continued working as it started to rain. I had plenty of tools, but Logan came prepared with plenty of his own tools along with a wheelbarrow! I would like to have them back as I had a long list of items needing attention, but the 3 hours were up and more rain was predicted. I will be calling on them again.
great job.wonderful young people
Nick and Tanner were just so professional, on-time, very pleasant to speak with and ready to get instructions on the work they needed to perform. Their performance was amazing. They even asked if there was anything else I needed them to do. I give His Workman, Nick and Tanner high a 10-star recommendation. Thank you, Eric, because my customer service experience was wonderful from the very beginning in speaking with you. His Workmanship is definitely worth using for your next project. I definitely will contact them for mine.
We needed rock removed from garden bed. They did a great job. I would definitely recommend these guys.

Ready to inquire about truck loading in Grand Rapids?

Frequently Asked Questions

The overall cost is based on a number of factors, but the primary ones are: the size of the moving truck, how full it needs to be loaded, the number of oversized items, the length of hallways, the number of stairs and your address in relation to the movers office location. All that said, the average packing job typically costs around $500 – $600 to load a 26 foot truck, $400 – $500 to load a 20 foot truck, $300 – $400 to load a 16 foot truck and $200 – $300 to load a 10 foot truck. These prices do not include packing boxes, truck rental costs, moving blankets or shrink wrap.
It really depends on factors such as: the number of heavy items, the number of stairs up or down, hallway length, distance from residence to truck, elevator availability, weather conditions, and how prepared the customer is with packed boxes. But in general, it’ll take 7-8 hours for 2 movers to load a 26 foot truck, 4-6 hours for 2 movers to load a 20 foot truck, 3-4 hours for 2 movers to load a 16 foot truck and 2-3 hours for 2 movers to load a 10 foot truck. Obviously, the move will go faster if you are willing to help out with the smaller items like boxes and bins. It will also speed up the process if your items were packed in a very organized fashion.
Roughly 75% of loading only moves can be accomplished most efficiently with just 2 professional movers. However, there are at least two circumstances that would require you to hire 3-4 movers, and these are listed below. First, whenever you have any items that weigh over 250 pounds, then I would recommend hiring 4 movers so that 2 guys can be on each side of the heavier items. This would include the following items: a pool table, a piano, a safe, a vanity, a treadmill, an elliptical, a hot tub or a fish tank. Second, if you have any expensive items that are oversized, then it’s most prudent to err on the safe side by hiring 4 movers to ensure the item doesn’t get damaged.
It depends on the size of your dresser. If it’s a small and light dresser, then you can keep your clothes inside. If it’s a big and heavy dresser, then you should take them out. The main reason movers like having dresser drawers empty is to reduce the overall weight. You should also tape the dresser drawers shut so they don’t fall out. If you don’t tape the drawers shut, the movers may simply take out the drawers, but that would take up more space in the moving truck. Don’t use duct tape as that will damage the wood finish upon removal. Instead, tape the drawers shut with painter’s tape or marking tape.
What better time to declutter your unused possessions than right before you move? Here are two reasons why you should get rid of unnecessary items in preparation for your move. First, there may be less available space in your new home than your current home. So it might be the case that everything wouldn’t fit which would require you to downside anyway. Second, moving is expensive so why not earn some extra money by selling things? This has a double benefit: it will reduce the cost of your move since there will be less items to load and unload. Plus, one person’s junk is another person’s treasure so you will make quick cash and help someone out in the process. Why not have a garage sale?

When you are packing boxes, you should try to group them according to what rooms the items will need to go in. You should keep a permanent marker handy so you can label each box based on what room they will be unpacked. Designate a specific number or color for each room and label all boxes accordingly. In order to do this, you will need to make sure you know what each room at your new residence will be used for. Accurately labeling cardboard boxes will help you determine which items to load into the moving truck first and which items should go in last. This topic of inquiry is actually discussed in the next question.
As a general rule of thumb, you should keep all the heavy items like dressers, armoires, desks and couches on the bottom level of the moving truck. This will function as a secure base and prevent damage to bigger items. Then you can stack all the lighter items like bags of clothes, boxes, chairs, and pillows on top of them. This will help you fill the space toward the top of the moving truck. The goal is to keep a level layer of items so you can keep adding more items on top. Putting awkwardly shaped items on the floor of the moving truck will throw off your foundation from the very beginning. Be sure to use moving blankets to cover items that could be damaged or scratched like wood or glass.
Try to save the most awkwardly shaped items for last. Examples include items like lawn mowers, snow blowers, treadmills, recliner chairs and bar stools. These items need to be on the floor surface of the truck because they are relatively heavy, but their top has a weird shape that keeps smaller items from being stacked on top. This is the moving equivalent of being put between a rock and a hard place. So what’s the solution to this problem? There is no simple answer but the general guideline is that awkwardly shaped items should go in last because they hog up a lot of truck space by preventing boxes from going on top. For further reading, check out my blog How to Pack and Load a Moving Truck like a Pro.
Your belongings can shift during transportation, especially long distance moves, so it adds an extra layer of protection to tie down your items in the moving truck. The best choice for this is ratchet straps, but you could also use bungee cords or ropes. Every 5 feet of packing items should be tied down in a cross shape. It’s essential to tighten the strap because if it’s loose then it’s not going to help secure the items. Ratchet straps have hooks on one end so they securely tie the furniture down on one end. Use these straps by wrapping them around the furniture and strapping them on the other end.
When it comes to picking a high quality packing and loading service, it’s essential for you to have information ready to provide to the truck loading company. Here are four important ones: 1. Have pictures of your heavier items ready to send via email or text, especially items that weigh over 250 pounds. 2. Count the number of bedrooms as well as the number of stairs at each location. 3. If applicable, reserve the elevator with the concierge at your apartment or condo. 4. Know the date of your move and, if possible, try to have some flexibility about the exact start time.

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.
