Yes, we bought a moving company! Odd right? As we worked on this venture over the past couple of months, Anthony commented one night, “we bought a zoo!” He was referencing the 2011 Cameron Crowe movie of course, not the fact that the business we bought was a zoo. That comment stuck with me, so we cued up the movie recently on family movie night and low and behold there were definitely some things there that I found ironically relevant. See, when you sum it up, WE BOUGHT A ZOO is a hopeful message about taking chances, finding 20 seconds of insane courage, loving people, and adventurous, unadulterated joy. All elements of the exciting new adventure our family has just embarked on.

In keeping with the zoo theme, let’s talk about the elephant in the room now shall we? Why a moving company? Yes, this announcement has garnered some inquisitive, perhaps puzzled, looks followed by that very question. Honestly put, Anthony and I are entrepreneurial geeks. An exciting evening at home often includes a nice bottle of wine and multiple episodes of Shark Tank, The Profit, or both. We enjoy brainstorming, debating, and picking matters of business apart. We have both had our hands in business ventures of varying levels of complexity over the years, but we have never before ventured into business as partners. When the brainstorming, debating, and picking apart was turned on our dear friend’s business that was for sale, we stumbled upon our first opportunity to explore this unchartered territory.

We have already learned quite a bit about working together, and are confident that those lessons will continue. But, one of the most interesting lessons to date came during a brainstorming meeting with a marketing firm. Going into that meeting we both thought we were at opposite ends of the spectrum with regard to how we planned to approach the business. We both have a solid basis in business with years of great experience in operations, sales, management, negotiations and more to draw on. But, when you boil it down Anthony is the engineer and I am the creative…different, right? What we learned during that meeting is that we are actually more similar than different from a marketing perspective. Of the twelve different marketing archetypes, we are the same, not different at all! We are both caregivers. As the highly esteemed, marketing guru we were meeting with pointed this out, it was as if the windows and doors were blown open and a beautiful bath of sunshine illuminated this whole idea. We were onto something and we didn’t even realize up to that point how in sync our ideas and motivations for pursuing this together were. But, what we did agree on is that we wanted to make a difference with this business and having the caregiver mentality at the heart of our plans was definitely in line with doing just that.

So, having brainstormed, debated, picked apart, researched, consulted, vetted with other business professionals and mentors we harnessed our sense of adventure, acted on our 20 seconds of insane courage and set off with great plans and hopefulness in our hearts to embark on the first family business for our little clan of Mutos. Yes, we have included our budding entrepreneurs Sophia and Dante in the process. They have had the opportunity to weigh in on planning, rebranding, and messaging. They are as excited as we are to see where this adventure will take us. To sum it all up, this business does come back to loving people both in that we are running a family business together with those we love the most, and in that we get to care for our customers and their personal belongings at pivotal points in their lives when this matters most. Certainly, these are very different types of love, or care if you will in the case of our clients, but being caregivers by nature we see this as the perfect fit for our family. This business offers us the opportunity to blend our entrepreneurial nature, business experience, and passion for making others feel valued and cared for with a little dash of Southern hospitality and make a difference both in our community and in our industry as we collectively create something GREATER together. And, you can trust that although we know there will be challenges, as long as we are in this together there will most certainly be adventurous, unadulterated joy too. Welcome to our zoo!

I appreciated how friendly Dakota was when answering the phone and answering all my questions. The packing ladies did a great job organizing and labeling all the boxes — and nothing broke in the move! Clint and his moving crew were very professional and worked hard all day in the 100+ degree heat. Would highly recommend this moving company!!

Exceptional service that was prompt and professional! We really enjoyed the people assigned to our move and the outstanding leadership of Eric who led the team on the ground. The support staff was also extremely responsive throughout the process and even did an in-move site check to make sure things were running smoothly. Overall it was a great experience! Thank you Eric & Team, Dakotah, and Tammy! We highly recommend you!

We have used Greater Austin Moving & Storage a few times, and they are always very professional, on time, and take great care that all of my furniture and things that are being moved, are done with the greatest of care, as if my things are theirs. They are great! The office, and the appointment makers are always friendly, and just wonderful! We highly recommend this moving company. The movers that came for my last move were Eric and Jadin and they are great!! Charley and Ruth Gray

This is my fourth move in and around the Austin area. If I move again (hopefully not) I will use Greater Austin Moving. They worked with my difficult schedule, they handled my belongings with care, and approached the move with a professional attitude. We had some minor wall damage and the team at Greater Austin Moving made it right within days after the move. I highly recommend you use this company.

Do you know what I care about in my movers? Sincerity, honesty, and professionalism. Tammy (owner - female and family ran which is extra cool to support), met and exceeded my expectations in regards to all three of those attributes. Stop searching, this the best movers in Austin.

I was really impressed by Tammy and the team at Greater Austin Moving & Storage. I've used them for my last four moves, and they've done an incredible job each time. For one of my moves, we only had four days to plan and execute the whole thing, and they really came through for me. Tammy is responsive over phone, text, and email. Her crews are smart, personable, and thorough. They also give you their cell numbers and you can call them at any time. I've moved dozens of times in my life, and my moves with Greater Austin were my best experience by a long shot.

We used Greater Austin Moving last weekend and had a fantastic experience. The initial estimating and quoting was made very simple and was presented to me online. On moving day the guys showed up on time, wrapped every item, and carefully packed. Disassembly, packing, unpacking and reassembly was quick and efficient. I highly recommend them.

Anytime you have to move it can be and is very stressful. My family (wife and 2 toddlers) were in a time crunch to move into our new house. After several bids from local movers in the Austin area I felt the most comfortable with these guys. From the first interaction I had to the time they finished the move and left, everyone was so professional and courteous. I even had a last minute change in the moving date and Tammy (the owner) was so accommodating and very understanding. She said no problem and made it happen. I had email updates and reminders which confirmed my confidence in them. Movers were a little early on moving day and called as a coUrtesy to see if I needed more time to prepare. Once they arrived they were very efficient and worked smart. They took great care of everything and worked around 2 toddlers the whole time. There were no hidden fees or trip charges etc. the rate they quoted me was exactly what I paid. Awesome local moving company here in Austin and would definitely use again and recommend to anyone I know.

Great communication and very good rate for moving a 5 BR house locally in town. On the day of the move, no one had shown up at 8:30 am as was originally communicated. I reached out to them and the team lead for my move had a family emergency and they were scrambling to find additional staff. The owner, Tammy, called me directly and then we continued to communicate via text until the movers showed up. She said that since it was a late start she would provide an additional mover (originally 3 movers) and an additional truck at no extra cost to make up for lost time. Once the movers were at my house by 10am, they hustled and were literally running back and forth to get everyone packed and loaded. They did end up using a little bit of the 2nd truck and then they unloaded everything at the new house really quickly. Tammy even showed up at the new house during the unload and apologized for the minor inconvenience and wanted to make sure everything went smoothly. The movers were exceptionally polite and super adept and strong at moving.I would absolutely use them again for moving and would definitely recommend them to anyone needing movers.

I own a moving company in Loveland Colorado. I had the pleasure of helping Dax unload a 26' truck with 2 of my guys. From the beginning the owner was very professional and straight forward with scheduling. The truck was packed professionally and you could tell these guys knew what they were doing! Dax was knowledgeable and the move went very smooth! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone to these guys moving to the Austin area.

Meticulous and respectful with impressive strength and agility! Everything you could want in a moving company. Tammy's team boxed up our entire home and moved us, including setting up beds and cribs. They moved swiftly, but thoughtfully. All the gentlemen I encountered were polite, courteous and eager to assist. It was a rainy day and they took extra precautions to protect our furniture. We did an initial walkthrough to pinpoint the more valuable items that need special attention and they happily followed every request I made, including setting up my daughter's first big girl bed in time for her to get home from school! I highly recommend Greater Austin Moving for packing, storage and moving. They are the BEST in town.

Moving can be so stressful, but Tammy and her team at Greater Austin Moving sure make the process easier.We needed help over a three day period. Each day the crew was on time, friendly, and hard working. Team leads Brian and Clint are fantastic. They made sure furniture and appliances were carefully wrapped and even assembled our heavy (and difficult!) master bedroom set. Thank you Greater Austin Moving for all the help!

I just used GAM and it was awesome!! Thanks for the great service and great attitudes from all the crew!!
I have used Greater Austin Moving going on two times now. They are professional, prompt and attentive to moving needs. They handled a last minute move for my daughter and was so accommodating and helpful. Tammy in the office was so friendly and went above and beyond what I expected. We were in a bind at the time and she took the steps necessary to ensure a smooth and quick move. They took great care in moving an entire apartment of furniture. The staff always responds either with a phone call or via email. The pricing is reasonable but what makes them different is that they will accommodate your needs and are willing to work with you to get the job done. I am using them again next month for another move and could not be happier with finding this outstanding moving company. I have passed along their info to all of my friends as well.Use Greater Austin Moving for all your moving needs and you will not be disappointed!

If they had any questions about anything, they made sure to check with me before making a decision. It made our transition extremely easy and I really appreciate their efforts.

The Greater Austin Moving & Storage team was simple to work with and beat other companies rates by 25%!!! I have moved locally (Austin) a few times over the years and Greater Austin was by far the best moving company to work with.The on-line quote was quick, easy and very accurate. The moving team was on time and professional. They were attentive to my fragile goods and expensive pieces. Pete did a top notch job of wrapping my pictures and large frames for the move.I would highly recommend for anyone who is making a move in Central Texas!

I live in Los Angeles and had to find a mover within 48 hours for my son in Austin. I was fortunate enough to find Scott and Greater Austin Moving and Storage, and from the very first phone call until the end of the job, the customer service was absolutely incredible. Scott was patient and understanding with our special needs, he advised and consulted and spent a lot of time trying to understand the situation so it would work out for the best for everyone. His men showed up on time, worked extremely fast, were careful and considerate, and the price for the move actually came in lower then quoted.Seriously, I have never had a move run this smoothly, and I would highly recommend this company for anyone and everyone.

We had to be out of our home in Cedar Park quickly after we sold it, and the new owners wanted to be in before Christmas, and our new home wouldn't be ready until February. Greater Austin fit us into the schedule at extremely short notice and was able to make two trips to our storage facility down in Oak Hill. We were literally in a HUGE rush and Greater Austin finished up in an amazingly short amount of time.I didn't even have to meet them at the storage facility and gave them our unit key and information so they handled all of the offloading themselves.After we closed on our new house, we weren't in such a rush and the same two move, Pete and Dominick, got us moved in in one afternoon, even with two whole truckloads. I appreciate them working with us on such a difficult relocation and would recommend them to friends and family.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!! We used Greater Austin Moving & Storage for an out of town move and I have nothing but great things to say about this company. Not only was the owner a delight to deal with, but the movers were timely, courteous, HARD WORKING and extremely careful with our belongings. I can’t say enough about Pete and the young men who did our move. They turned an otherwise stressful event into a completely stress free experience and they delivered on everything they promised. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY for any kind of moving need!

These guys did a great job on our move: on time (early), moved everything quick and gave us a FAIR price for overages (instead of trying to rip us off) and additional services. Sent one supervisory mover and two younger guys, which worked out well in terms of both speed and quality. Mover noticed the back of our leather couch was dented (from a previous light cord being pressed into it) and brought it to our attention once we were here instead of trying to go on and hope we didn't blame him. When we were at the new house Scott (the owner) stopped by to check in on us, our move, and to ensure things were done right. I have no hesitation recommending Greater Austin Moving & Storage to anyone for their moving needs.
