How to Grow One Truck Plus One Driver into a Nationally Known Moving Company

We understand the principle of hard work

Starving Students Movers, California and Nevada's largest local moving company, has been in business for 35 years. It wasn't always this way.

In 1973, two high school students Ethan Margalith and Darryl Marshak couldn't find part-time jobs. They needed money to eat, so they had to get creative. Ethan found an old army truck stuck in a mudslide, dug it out, and painted "Moving? Call Starving Students" on the side. This was the birth of Starving Students Movers.

Fast Forward to 2008. Starving Students now:

  •     Serves customers through 35 branches in nine states
  •     Serves over 1,000 families each week
  •     Is California and Nevada's biggest moving company

Starving Students Movers wouldn't have gotten there without hard work and perseverance. They put their heart into every move and it shows. What does Starving Students offer to its customers?

"We understand the principle of hard work," Christopher Larkins, President of Starving Students Movers, says, "Let us work hard for you."
