Our customers are people who typically haven’t used movers in the past – people who think it’s too expensive and beyond their reach. While that’s certainly true with larger companies specializing in large home and/or cross-country moves, MTB is different – we know most people just need “a buddy with a truck.”

We keep it simple: two or three local Buddies (full-time employees) and a box truck, all

MTB the moving company is no longer in operation, but I’m still happy to help with the occasional buddy-with-a-truck job. Message me through Facebook and I’ll get back to you ASAP.

Cheers!

Goodbye, brother - My Truck Buddy Moving

Missing my good friend Matt of Bookstore Movers. He was one of the best men I've ever known.

https://mytruckbuddymoving.com/goodbye-brother/

The DCist has a good, and frankly, gut-wrenching piece about the recent passing of my friend and friendly competitor, Matt Wixon of Bookstore Movers. Every word of it is true – he was the best man in the business. Long after I was worn out and ready to throw in the towel, Matt was still …

LONG-TIME EMPLOYEES AND FRIENDS OF CAPITOL HILL BOOKS PURCHASE STORE FROM OWNER JIM TOOLE

A huge, rapturously joyful CONGRATULATIONS to Bookstore Movers and my friend and brother-in-arms Matt Wixon for finally purchasing Capitol Hill Books. The whole reason Bookstore got into the moving business was to save enough money to purchase the place. I'm ecstatic for them for all kinds of reasons, but perhaps most because he set a goal, weathered YEARS of incredible adversity (this IS the moving business, after all), and stuck to the plan despite innumerable challenges. AND HE DID IT. HE. DID. IT.

Well, he and his team, of course.

Bookstore Movers is an outstanding outfit in an industry filled with scum and villainy. Every single guy I've spoken with who has worked at Bookstore has spoken highly of Matt. He's always considered his team family, and even when he had to "subtract" guys from the business for various reasons, he's checked up on them later - even though the subtraction might have happened for serious reasons.

I'm really cautious about who I call "brother," but he is, without a doubt, my brother. If it all fell apart tomorrow I'd be asking him for a job.

Congratulations again, my buddy. This is a huge win.

Literally true. Every night.

Question: if you know that a moving company doesn't have all their licenses and mandated forms of insurance, but they offer a better rate, would you go with them? IOW, does cheaper supersede everything?

I ask because I'm starting to think we're the only idiots in the industry who actually, you know, try to run a legitimate moving company AND offer affordable rates to the non-super-rich.

True fact.

Becoming a Philanthropist
Becoming our home grown philanthropic selves

As any history buff knows, these times we are living in can sometimes seem like reruns. News reports are filled with stories of wars, disasters, dictators, attacks on the innocent, increased crime, and the ever present persecution of Christians in various parts of the world. We’ve witnessed the increased attacks against Coptic Christians in Egypt, as well as the expulsion of the entire Christian population from parts of Syria. Political unrest is happening in many parts of the world, and genocide is being perpetrated upon ethnic groups in parts of Africa. The number of families found homeless is nearing the percentages that were found in the Great Depression.

Times like ours call for us to become spiritually fit so that we can be beacons of light among those who have lost all hope. The challenges that face all of us are not for the faint of heart, yet the spiritually fit can triumph over anything, and we must continue trying to encourage this new generation of young people, and equip them for whatever may be coming.

We have before us many challenges, and hardships, and those who have developed a strong faith must be willing to sharing their faith based strength with those who are on the edge.

A study of history can show us that we are not the only people who’ve faced these problems, and we will not be the last. What is missing, it seems to me, is the sense of community, of a people who are united to find solutions, and not simply war with each other. The present political climate in the United States, with it’s polarization of good people, can not lead to the solutions we need to turn things around. What is needed is for people of faith to step forward and help those who have lost homes, jobs, and hope, and offer help in whatever way we can. Walling ourselves off from those who’ve fallen through the cracks will not make things better.

During times like these we must refocus our attention on the things that build up community. Rather than giving ourselves over to entertainment, or on-line friendships (which are not always bad), we can involve ourselves in active philanthropic activities, such as volunteering in soup kitchens, tutoring homeless kids, manning childcare centers that help parents have the freedom to find jobs, or perhaps volunteer to be job counselors. We can look in on the elderly lady living next door, or the young mother whose husband is serving in the military. We can join others who serve Meals on Wheels programs that make sure the elderly and shut-ins eat balanced and nutritious meals.

We can volunteer to teach English as a second language to immigrant families, or drive seniors to doctor appointments. We can fill the gas tank of a struggling family at the next pump, or pay for the groceries for the single mother standing behind us in the checkout line.

When seeing someone on the bus that is looking lost in worry, we can offer to pray for them, or even invite them to church with us on Sunday. We can purchase a few extra hamburgers, with the intention of giving them to the homeless people asking for spare change at the entrance to the fast food restaurant. We can offer to sit with a sick relative or neighbor, and let the caregiver have a few hours to get outside for some much needed leisure time. We an offer to take a neighbor out to lunch, who we know is going through some difficult times. We can buy a fistful of McDonald’s coupons, and give them to anyone who asks for a handout. The coupons are not that expensive, the person gets several meals out of them, and when you’re desperate for a meal, it’s a real treat. As we hand the person the coupons we can ask them to pray for us, so they are able to preserve their dignity, and feel less like a beggar.

Whatever struggles we have on our plate will seem like nothing, once we’ve given ourselves over in service to others. Even when we are struggling to make ends meet, the power of giving can change our life for the better. By becoming philanthropists, and focusing on others in need, our own problems will seem less serious. We can even rally fellow parishioners or neighborhood friends who feel the same way, and start a project together, and thus help a lot of people in need.

With love in Christ,
Abbot Tryphon

Getting back to the basics - our First Principles.

It's been a rough winter. In addition to the usual slowdown, there have been challenges of every kind. But winter is around the corner, and we have a new group of guys coming through. They'll be getting the "MTB Old School" indoctrination. Call it brainwashing, if you want, but what worked best in the past will work again.

We have a 40+ page manual that lays out all the various do's and don'ts. It's necessary, but not nearly as useful as our simple First Principles: "Show up on time. Work hard and fast. Be friendly and careful. It's that simple." Every single situation that has ever come up or will ever come up is covered by these simple guidelines.

Or as Chesterton said, "When you break the big laws, you do not get freedom, you do not even get anarchy. You get the small laws."

From a recent email:

"Hi Chris - I wanted to let you know that the guys yesterday were hands down the best movers I have ever used (and I've used a bunch). They were incredibly efficient and polite and fast. When I glanced into the back of the truck, I saw how well protected and strapped down all my furniture was. You guys really helped make what could have been a stressful situation into the exact opposite. I will be recommending your company to anyone I know who needs something moved. I'm also going to write you guys a raving review -- which is something I never do.

Thank you! And my best,
Jen"

Truck E2 just threw trash out the window on rt 20 in Orange county. Littering is illegal and bad for the environment. Thought you'd like to know since its terrible advertisement for your company.
