Everyone should have a buddy with a truck!

Even better if your buddy has a small fleet of brand new, well-maintained moving trucks (and one little van).

What we do is simple, or at least we try to make it that way. We move your stuff from Point A to B, and we do it in a way that, inexplicably, most moving companies don't. Whether you need help moving within the DC area, loading or unloading a truck, moving within your apartment building, assembling furniture or just need some extra manpower, we operate under our time-tested First Principles: 

Show up on time. Work hard and fast. Be friendly and careful. Keep it simple.

That's it. We don't hold items hostage, charge outrageous surprise fees, or cancel jobs without notice (or with notice, for that matter). Does that sound strange? Well, these tactics seem to be the norm in the moving industry. But not at My Truck Buddy.

So, check out our website. Or our hundreds of reviews on Yelp and Angie's List. Better yet -- give us a call today. Summer is winding up and our schedule fills up fast! Speaking of which, here's our Estimate Request Form.

“I do not want to move again anytime soon but I know who I will remember to call next time if I need to!”

-- From a recent Yelp review: Keri B., (6/2/2015)

My Truck Buddy is a group of local guys dedicated to the radical idea that service = success. For more than eight years, Truck Buddies have successfully moved thousands of people, one move at a time, in sweltering summer heat and frigid winter cold. Being a Truck Buddy doesn't just mean having the right skill-set to do your move right -- it means having the right attitude.

We strive to give people the best moves of their lives at a fair price. Whether it's a studio, one or two-apartment, or three-bedroom town home, we can handle it. Just need help with a delivery, or don't feel like assembling that Ikea furniture yourself? No problem. We'll even help move furniture around your house during a remodel, and every now and then, we provide a shoulder to cry on.

Whatever we're doing, people seem to like it. In the last few years, MTB has earned more than 300 visible Yelp reviews and a five-star average (and another 300 archived reviews). Our guys have earned the coveted Angie's List Super Service Award five consecutive years. And DC-area residents gave the "Runner-Up" position to MTB in the Washington City Paper's "Best of" Reader's Poll three times. We're fairly proud of this record, but we don't slack off because of it -- quite the opposite.

Moving Guide

The My Truck Buddy Moving Guide

The key to a fast, cheaper move is good preparation. That's what the My Truck Buddy Moving Guide tries to drive home within its pages. Since we published version #1 about four years ago, thousands of people have used it with great results. In fact, if I was a better businessman, I'd take it down because thousands of hours of time saved = thousands of dollars that don't go to our bottom line. 

When we show up to a new job site and see neatly stacked boxes, smartly disassembled furniture, and all elevators reserved, we think one thing: "They read the Guide."

Here's what some of our customers have said about it:

"The moving guide on their website was extremely helpful - seriously, follow their instructions and tips." -- Sarah H.

"They provide a really detailed and helpful guide on how to pack things efficiently/safely." -- Paige F.

"Additionally, MTB expressed a clear understanding of many of the frustrations of moving and addressed them directly in its moving guide." -- Sabrina J.

"I followed the suggestions and tips in the MTB Moving Guide (a great resource!) and it really helped to cut down on the time." -- Anonymous 

We publish the Guide on our blog (because it's ever-changing and improving). Check it out here!

Moving, in itself, is so enormously stressful. It sucks, and I regularly do everything I can during an apartment hunt to avoid moving at all costs - aka, finding a place that I'm going to stay in for as long as possible.

But there are moments in life when it's just unavoidable, like when it's time to move in with a significant other. Which means moving stress is inevitable. And being 27, I am just past the point of paying my friends in pizza and beer to deal with all of my crap.

In comes My Truck Buddy. Seriously - LOOK NO FURTHER. I can't even begin to describe how incredibly awesome, wonderful, and hassle-free My Truck Buddy is. We finished the unload at my new place about an hour ago and OH MY GOD I am so grateful to these guys for rocking it. Seriously. Granted, my boyfriend and I spent the last week and a half gradually moving the random bits and pieces and lighter boxes that I didn't want to waste money on paying movers to move when I could move them myself, but they were experts with the big and bulky pieces and storage bins and boxes. It took them just over 30 minutes to get everything out of my old place and about ten minutes to get it all into my new place. That combined with the drive hit just over an hour and therefore I only have to pay for the base rate, which was fantastically priced compared to others in the area.

I should mention too that when I first applied for the estimate, they quoted me a much higher base rate (for three guys on a weekend) and when I mentioned that it was a little bit out of my price range, they immediately offered to knock it down to two guys at the weekday rate, so they were very accommodating on price. Even better yet, when I called this morning to see what was up because they were running just ten minutes late arriving, then owner told me that they had a three-man job scheduled for after they were done with me, so they were sending three guys but I would still only have to pay for two.

ENORMOUS THANKS AND LOVE to the guys at My Truck Buddy. Truly, you made the conclusion of my move so stress-free and easy that my sorrow of leaving my old place and concern of unpacking in my new place is just totally gone. I will absolutely use MTB in the future and recommend them to any and all people moving.

FULL DISCLOSURE: The better YOU pack, the better this experience is for everybody involved. I read MTB's entire packing guide that's on their website - it's even handy to people who ARENT using movers. The more organized and ready you are when they arrive though, the simpler and faster the job will be. And it doesn't hurt to be generous and have water bottles and donut holes ready for them to munch on while they're working. Also, I suggest tipping in cash just as an extra thank you, and so that it doesn't get eaten up by taxes.

Mike, Shaun, Kevin, and Brendan (from memory, sorry about any spelling mistakes) were professional, polite, friendly, and very efficient. We had an unforeseen delay due to a double-booking of our loading dock, and we somehow managed to finish a half hour under our estimated time. 

They humored me when I tried to help out, even though I'm guessing I probably just slowed them down. 

Not only were they very fast, but everything was handled well, and even our our oldest, cheapest bookshelves survived. 

This was the smoothest move, and glad we went with this company. We'll definitely turn to them again in the future. (5/20/2015)

My neighbors were also moving (using another company) on the same day, and they were jealous of the movers that I had.  They were like: Wow, I wish I had your movers. And then they took down the name of the company for next time. (5/24/2015)

Of the half dozen times I've done this college move-in/out process, this was easily the best moving experience I've ever had. (5/24/2015)

Hats off to My Truck Buddy, the guys, Sean, Mike and Delonte arrived about 10 minutes early and were some of the happiest people I've ever encountered to move furniture and boxes from a house. (5/24/2015)
