Company History

How we started

From its humble beginning, two recent high school graduates unable to pay for college, or "starving students," dug a borrowed "Dodge Power Wagon," a former World War II weapons carrier used to tow cannons, out of a mudslide. These two students painted "Starving Students" on the side of the Wagon, parked it on a local highway, and their successful moving company was born.

Starving Students opened its first branch in the basement of a log cabin that was the former home of Tom Mix, a silent movie star. This branch was located in Laurel Canyon, a suburb of Los Angeles, California. At the time, many famous movie stars and musicians lived in the Canyon, and Starving Students became their preferred full service moving company.

With hundreds of trucks in their fleet, Starving Students is currently one of California and Nevada's largest home movers, moving tens of thousands of families every year. The moving company's corporate headquarters is based in Southern California. They extend their professional moving services to thirty-three (33) locations throughout nine (9) states in the western and eastern portions of the United States, as well as in Texas. The multiple locations allow the company to offer affordable moving and storage to a local and national market. Whether you are looking for cross country movers or a local door to door moving company, Starving Students supplies the best movers to get the job done.

Starving Students follows the same age old traditions upon which the moving company was founded in 1973. Our goal and mission statement is simple, "To provide our customers with high quality, stress-free, professional moving and storage services at excellent value with a lower final cost."

A moving company predominantly known for its success in local moves, Starving Students offers long distance residential and commercial moves, as well as full-service, portable storage containers. The choice is clear: choose Starving Students to fulfill your one-stop moving and storage needs!

Customer Reviews

"Best decision we have ever made in a move. Robert and Alfred were absolutely amazing. They worked quickly and were very careful with our things. When it came time to move our Sub Zero very heavy refrigerator up the stairs and into our condo....they did it!(our sofa was no easy task either) I was so amazed at their determination to complete this difficult task. I would definitely recommend them to anyone...anytime! Thank you Alfred and Robert for a wonderful job!"

"M Kinley Strahan and T were very professional, polite and worked together very well. All of our belongings were handled with the utmost care. These men worked without taking a break. We bought them each a large drink before we left for the destination, 46 miles away, and that was the only time they were not moving furniture. We were very pleased with the move and will not hesitate to recommend your company."

-- Paula C.

"Daniel and Travis were our movers from Lodi to Reno. They did an excellent job and took great care to ensure what needed wrapping for protection was done. They were courteous and clear about the process and prices. By the way, the cost was at least 1/2 of the other 2 quotes I received from competitors and I do not see how the competitors could have done better. They unloaded our stuff and placed each item in the place in the room that we requested. All in all we couldn\'t have been happier with the entire experience. Obviously I would recommend them highly. Thank you."
