In 1994, university student David Seeley played music as a part time job. But when his band broke up, he used the band truck to help people move around the Twin Cities. After three increasingly successful seasons, David knew it was time to take his business to the next level.
He changed the company name from Happy Movers to Local Motion, invested in more trucks, hired more staff, and set out to make his company a household name.
To date, Local Motion is the top moving company in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, leading in technical innovation in the moving and storage industry. For two years in a row Local Motion has received honors as one of the Twin Cities’ fastest growing privately held companies by The Twin Cities Business Journal.
Local Motion has been moving individuals and families throughout the Twin Cities area for over 22 years and are proud of our reputation of excellence. Our modern fleet of 24 trucks and over 100 employees make us the largest local moving company in the area. We can assist you with moving, storage, and packing, and will even let you use free moving boxes during your move.
Local Motion is all about helping out our local community in Brooklyn Park as well as the entire Twin Cities metro area.
We assist every year on many non-profit fundraisers, including the Second Harvest Food Drive #stampouthunger with the MTSA, collecting food in our trucks and delivering it to those in need.
Local Motion loves to support the local community with our trucks!
Absolutely First Class from my first conversation with Ray Taggart to the final delivery of my possessions. Communication, coordination , execution, follow through on commitments and the rates/cost of the move was impeccable. Not a single item was damaged or lost. I really didn't think it was possible. I couldn't recommend Local Motion Movers more highly. They far exceeded my expectations and saved me thousands versus their competition. Very impressive and professional.
This was our second opportunity in a matter of a few days to use Local Motion to complete our move. Once again, I was not disappointed. They moved a load of storage boxes, along with the messy, heavy garage stuff in record time. Anthony and Jason are top-notch. Thanks for a great crew!
The moving crew was great! They were on time, courteous, professional and hard working. I could not have asked for a better experience and will be recommending Local Motion to all my friends and business associates.
I will DEFINITELY recommend Local Motion to anyone I know for any of their moving needs. Your guys did an excellent job and YES, they did go beyond my expectations. I have had so much customer service issues with various cable/Internet/TV companies, banks, utilities, insurance companies,and other places but not your company - I am a very happy customer. Thanks...............Ed
Seriously - worth every penny. The movers were super fast and very polite and helpful. I never thought we were going to get everything moved in time, but we did. It meant the world to have everything moved in with enough time to spare that we could put my son's room back together, so he could sleep in his new room the first night. I've already recommended to friends and family, and I would definitely use your services again.
I had a rather sudden move to handle and Local Motion was great. They not only thoroughly and quickly provided me with the information and quotes I needed, they helped me by being very compassionate about how disruptive moving can be. Local Motion's positive, customer-first attitude is wonderful and they go out of their way to make a person's day. The movers themselves were excellent and very professional. They took great care with my family's antiques.
I was very pleased with the prompt, smooth and professional manner that the moving team displayed when moving my mother from one assisted living facility to another across town. I had no assistance from family with packing her things in boxes to prepare for her move, and I wasn't quite finished when the movers arrived. However, "Sam" and "T", from Local Motion, were so incredible and just worked around me with a very good and helpful attitude. Tony, who scheduled our move, was wonderful, as well! He was more than willing to work with me on an actual moving date; willing to reschedule with a relatively short notice from me, if needed. This is the second time we have used Local Motion - it won't be the last! ☺ Their rates are very competitive, as well. Thanks Tony, Sam & T!!!
I was so incredibly impressed with the entire service, from chatting with Ray to working with the six men that helped us. They were professional, funny, and so quick! I would and will refer Local Motion to anyone moving forward. We are hopefully not moving again, but if we did-we'd chose Local Motion in a heartbeat. It was more than worth every dollar. THANK YOU!!!
Our team was beyond our wildest expectations! Even after working 12 hours straight to get our move done, every man maintained a happy, positive and collaborative spirit. No matter how many times we asked them to move something from one level of the house to another it was always done with pleasure. Our furniture arrived in the same condition it left our previous home, which was a great relief!
We so appreciated the flexibility of the team as our office move had to be rescheduled from morning to afternoon. The team was capable, organized and hardworking. This is our second time using this company and have been extremely pleased both times.
