From Humble Beginnings: The Inspiring Journey of Higher Ground Moving

Once upon a time, in the picturesque town of Bend, Oregon, two souls with a shared dream embarked on an entrepreneurial adventure. Nate Becker and Rachel Wood, a dynamic duo in both life and love, founded Higher Ground Moving on April 1st, 2019. Their story is one of ambition, love, and resilience, intertwining their personal lives with their professional aspirations in a remarkable way. As they joined hands in marriage in 2021, they also fortified their business partnership, setting the stage for a thriving enterprise.

In the beginning, Higher Ground Moving had more spirit than resources. With no moving truck to call their own, Nate, ever the problem-solver, turned to renting U-Haul trucks for each moving job. It was a modest start, but it was fueled by a fiery determination to succeed against all odds. Nate's knack for resourcefulness didn't stop at just finding trucks; he also ventured onto Craigslist, not only to find moving gigs but to scout for potential team members who could share in their journey and support their growing business.

The road was not without its bumps. The early days were filled with challenges, from overwhelming paperwork to navigating the complex maze of regulations set by the Department of Transportation. Despite these hurdles, Nate and Rachel's dedication never wavered. They were committed to making their business work, not just as a means to earn a living but as a way to contribute meaningfully to their community.

As time went on, Higher Ground Moving grew from a fledgling startup without a truck to a well-respected name in the community. The company's reputation was built on the foundation of hard work, dedication, and an unwavering commitment to service. Nate and Rachel's early efforts to engage with their community—through reliable service and genuine interactions—helped cement Higher Ground Moving as an integral part of the local landscape.

Today, Higher Ground Moving stands as a testament to what can be achieved with a little bit of passion, perseverance, and a heart for community.

From those early days of truck rentals and Craigslist ads to becoming a beloved local business, the story of Higher Ground

Moving is not just about moving belongings—it's about moving hearts and inspiring others to chase their dreams, no matter how daunting they may seem.
