In 2017, UniMovers founder, Collin Flynn, was a strapped-for-cash student at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Hoping for a little extra pocket money, he started Collin’s Movers, a single-man moving company helping anyone move furniture for an affordable price. After a couple of rough patches (like failing to learn how to drive a stick-shift moving truck from a YouTube video), Collin’s customer base grew.
Soon, more college friends offered to help Collin with his jobs. It didn’t take long to become official. “College Movers” launched in Cedar Rapids, complete with its first team of student movers. As time passed, the business continued to grow. And when students graduated they took the business with them. College Movers opened branches in states across the U.S. from Iowa to the Carolinas.
As the branches expanded, Collin felt that “College Movers” needed a rebrand. In February 2021, a new name was decided. UniMovers was the perfect name to encompass the family of university student movers and the company’s core value of uplifting its communities.
Today, UniMovers is still run by current college students and recent graduates. We take pride in offering our semi-annual scholarship fund to any working college student, who, like Collin, might be strapped for cash. We also love supporting the communities we operate in by annually donating a portion of each location’s revenue to local nonprofits.
