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.
OKI Door Guys' Martine Mijares and his squadron of garage specialists have collectively installed more than 5,000 doors and openers across the region, meticulously inspecting and fine-tuning garage doors of all sizes and models. Teams combat the winter winds and salt slicks that wreak havoc on garage machinations by lubricating all moving parts, allowing homeowners to shut out snow piles and the nomadic snowboarders who camp out on them. After gauging the door’s balance and inspecting its cables, mechanics ensure that springs operate with an optimal boing and remote controls communicate fluently with garage doors after an inspection and calibration. Additionally, OKI Door Guys happily offers homesteaders free consultations to discuss options such as replacing a garage door with a medieval drawbridge.

They install new doors and opener systems in addition to repairing existing systems and make free estimates before so much as turning a screw.
