College Hunks Hauling Junk

The Country’s Fastest-Growing Moving Franchise and Junk Hauling Franchise

College Hunks Hauling Junk & Moving enjoys strong growth and a thriving entrepreneurial culture

Our Story

With a name like “College Hunks Hauling Junk,” it may surprise you to know that the essence of our brand was best illustrated inside a senior living center. In Spring 2014, Cesar Larios, a College Hunks mover and student at The Art Institute of Florida, was inside an elevator with a 79-year-old resident when the elevator got stuck. The resident started to worry — she didn’t think she could stand long enough to be rescued. So Cesar dropped to his hands and knees to turn himself into a human bench.

A snapshot was put on Facebook and quickly went viral, warming hearts around the world. We were wowed by the response — but we weren’t surprised by the event. Cesar is a great guy, and when he dropped to his hands and knees to offer support, he was doing the very thing that sets College Hunks apart: making a situation that could have been tense fun instead.
