About the Owner

Owner, Uni Movers Durham NC
Nathan Williams opened the UniMovers Durham in late July, 2020 after graduating with a Psychology degree and Business minor from University of North Carolina- Wilmington. Even amidst the global pandemic, Nathan recognized the potential for a moving business’ success in a region of constant population growth that he also happens to call home. Creating a friendly and enthusiastic work environment consisting of full-time students, part-time students, and recent graduates, Nathan strives to support these local students financially, while providing them with work that easily fits around their busy class schedules. In Nathan’s free time, you can find him caring for his dog, studying Buddhist and Stoic philosophy, reading, and staying fit.

Giving Back

In addition to donating to our scholarship fund, Nathan has decided to dedicate a portion of his revenue to the non-profit, 10Eighteen. 10Eighteen strives to support impoverished Ugandan youth through implementing educational programs for teen moms, providing halfway-houses for these young moms, building clean water systems in the Rwakobo village, and providing food support for three schools. In 2020, they donated 150,000 meals!

Frequently Asked Questions

Our most frequently asked questions and answers

The closest airport to Durham is the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU). It is about 13.6 miles or a 17-minute drive from Durham’s city center. Alternatively, you could fly into the Charlotte Douglas Airport (CLT) which is typically cheaper, but much further away at 147.5 miles, or a 2 hour and 11-minute drive.

Utilizing data collected from Uhaul, we found that the cost for hiring local moving labor in Durham, NC is between $45 and $75 per hour per mover. The rate can change, however, depending on the size of the project. For instance, if you need assistance moving a piano or gun safe, there may be additional fees associated. Here at UniMovers Durham, we offer a low flat rate of $50/hour/mover without any added fees.

The number of movers needed varies based on the project, however, a good rule of thumb for residential moves is to match the number of movers to the number of bedrooms, or have one more mover than the number of bedrooms. So if you are moving to or from a 4-bedroom home, we would recommend hiring 4-5 movers.

Your movers will definitely need to come into your home to assist in moving things in or out of the home. However, if you are moving things in the garage, or outside, just let your movers know you would prefer they stay outside your home.
