Bekins History

Bekins began in 1891 in Sioux City, Iowa, with three horse-drawn moving vans and a commitment to become the most trusted moving and storage company in America.

What started as a small family operation has grown to become the nation’s largest moving company with more than 300 locations throughout the U.S. Over the years, we have expanded our business to include a full range of moving services for our residential, commercial and industrial customers.

Back in the old days, a strong back was the primary requirement for a successful move. But as the world changed, Bekins changed with it. In addition to strong backs, Bekins now leverages advanced technology and 24/7 online tracking, giving you around-the-clock access to the location of your valuables and belongings.

Founded in 1983, Midwest Moving & Storage is pleased to continue the Bekins tradition of excellence. We have successfully managed the relocation needs of thousands of Detroit area families and businesses, and we welcome the opportunity to assist you with your relocation – whether it’s across town or across the globe.
