History of Bekins Van Lines

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.
