Joshua Baxter was born to move. As a child he was so entrenched in his family's auction business that when Joshua was 16, his father pulled him aside and told him it was time to take an active role. So, Joshua took his driver's test in the truck the family used to pick up merchandise, and at 19 he bought his own truck, handling the transportation of the often-valuable antiques. That skill and preternatural understanding of merchandise transportation led to the birth of Here To There Movers. Now, Joshua has trucks headquartered in five Midwest cities.
Here To There Movers' technicians know that the transport of belongings from one abode to another is one of life's most stressful affairs, even more than interviewing for a position at the local bomb diffusery. The licensed and insured staff can arrive at a moment's notice, equipped to handle bookshelves, boxes, and pianos. Here To There provides a frequently asked questions page and moving tips for the befuddled house-swapper or recreational vagrant.
The craftsmen of HammerDown Construction feel most at home on top of other homes. They specialize in roof and gutter work, reporting to residences after storms to patch up leaks and stave off costly water damage. Even if the roof just needs an inspection or a few shingles replaced, they'll administer a quick roof tuneup, which also includes the resealing of caulked seams and a gutter cleaning. The team—which consists entirely of full-time workers—also spruces up home exteriors with power-washing services.

The stain-slaying staff at Mark’s Cleaning Service, with 27 years of carpet-cleaning prowess, extricates grime from fibers without leaving a sticky residue or overwetting shags. During the multistep process, a commercial-strength vacuum first removes dry soil and hidden car keys before a preconditioner loosens dirt and oils. A spot-clean ameliorates stubborn blots such as gum, wax, squid ink, and pet stains, and then a truck-mounted rinse system bathes carpets. Next, an Evolution wand breaks up encrusted crud with gentle agitation. The skilled carpet custodian then targets any lingering stains with a specialty spot cleaner and finishes by blowing carpets dry with a high-powered turbo dryer or by mouth.
