“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 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.
