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.
Coit Services may have started out as a small dry cleaning business in 1950, but all that changed when the founder began offering drapery cleaning backed by a guarantee. It promised everything from a re-cleaning to a complete replacement if customers were unsatisfied, and it ensured enthusiastic high-fives and repeat business. Coit Services still relies on that guarantee to this day, and as a result, the company now has locations around the country, in Canada, and even in Thailand.
Its technicians travel to homes to refresh carpets, de-grime tile and grout, and remove pollutants from air ducts. They also still perform Coit's longtime specialty service?drapery and blind cleaning.
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.
The technicians at Total Cleaning Solutions undergo continuing education and training according to IICRC requirements, ensuring that each service they provide meets or exceeds industry standards. They specialize in carpet and upholstery cleaning, pulling dirt, bacteria, and children wearing velcro suits from fibers using a truck-mounted hot-water-extraction system along with Green Seal–certified products—products that meet a rigorous set of quality standards and have a lower impact on human and environmental health. The team also cleans tile, grout, and air ducts, helping to lower both interior allergen counts and monthly utility bills by removing dirt and dust from the system, allowing it to run more cleanly and efficiently.
