The founders at Muscular Moving Men have always felt strongly that giving back to the community of AZ is important. Over the years since the company was founded in 2008, Muscular Moving Men has partnered with groups like Hope Womens Center of Arizona and Phoenix Childrens Hospital to donate moving service and help families get a fresh start. When the Arizona Republic recently published an article about a family in Gilbert being forced to move by a landlord in the process of re-developing the land, it really hit home.
After Justin Hodge, the president of Muscular Moving Men, heard the story, he jumped into action. “I never like to see families get uprooted,” Hodge said. “This is not a move that was in the cards for the Rosales family. …We felt strongly we needed to get involved and help them land on their feet. We subscribe to the theory (that) the givers gain,” Hodge said. Muscular Moving Men sent a truck and two employees to bring the family’s living room furniture, mattresses and other items to their new home. The Rosales family had found a place a mile away at Country Villa Apartments just a few days before their move-out deadline. “We can’t thank them (the moving company) enough,” said Freddy Rosales, who previously had hurt his back moving boxes. “We couldn’t have done it all by ourselves. … This restores your faith.” His wife, Susie Rosales, broke into tears as she recounted the stress over moving and the relief when the moving company and others stepped up.
