Movegreen Story

Movegreen, founded in 2007, emerged as a revolutionary force in the age-old moving and storage industry. The company was founded by Erik S. Haney, who embarked on his career in the moving industry back in 2001. 

Erik’s story begins when, at the age of 20, he moved from Bend, OR, to Santa Barbara, CA, to join a friend who had relocated for college. Santa Barbara, known for its affluence and high cost of living, presented financial challenges for Erik. As a part-time student struggling to make ends meet, he found himself at a crossroads with only $500 to his name. Faced with the prospect of having to return to Oregon and move in with his parents, Erik seized an opportunity. 

One of his friends told him about a summer job they had the year before working for a moving labor service. A trip to Home Depot to pick out a dolly, coupled with a bold decision to publish an ad in the Santa Barbara News-Press service directory for “student moving,” changed the trajectory of Erik’s life. On the first day his ad ran, he secured a job, despite having no prior experience in the moving industry. This was when Haney Moving was born.

Years of successfully running Haney Moving laid the foundation for the birth of Movegreen in October 2007. Since its inception, Movegreen has experienced remarkable growth, consistently expanding by more than 20% each year. Today, the company boasts an impressive fleet of 20 trucks and service vehicles, with four strategically placed facilities providing storage solutions. These facilities include a substantial 33,000 square feet in Oxnard, 21,000 square feet in Santa Clarita, 11,000 square feet in West Los Angeles, and additional storage capabilities in Santa Barbara. Movegreen serves over 2,500 families per year and has moved over 35,000 families since 2007.
