About the Founders

Founded by brothers John and Martin Bekins in 1891, Bekins began operations in Sioux City, Iowa, with just three horse-drawn vans and twelve employees. Since then, we’ve grown to become one of the nation’s largest full-service moving and storage companies with nearly over 400 agents and offices worldwide. As we’ve grown, so have our services: Today we specialize in moving high value items, international relocation and our long-time business of interstate moving.

The times have certainly changed over the last 125 years, and to keep up, we’ve changed along with them. Whereas a strong back and a horse-and-buggy was the primary criterion for movers in the late 19th century, information technology and logistics now define today’s moving and storage industry. But one thing has stayed the same: our commitment to expertise, reliability, and worry-free moves.

Over the years, Bekins has been involved with many firsts and important milestones within the moving industry.
