Marcus Building Movers has been moving buildings, structures and equipment since 1975. The company actually came about through an integral need of Mr. Marcus, eventual company founder, owner and operator.
In 1975 he needed a shed moved, while waiting to have it moved by a structural moving company he decided he was going to do the job himself. As a problem-solving farmer and skillful mechanic who was known for "thinking outside the box," he knew he could handle the task. Plus he had five sons he knew would assist him during the moving process.
The founder bought-out a mover from New London, Minnesota specifically for their moving equipment and then moved his first structure, a shed. From there Marcus Building Movers was established and began to grow, relocating new and larger structures throughout the years. Eventually his three sons, Garvin, Marlin and Jerry Marcus, became partners and bought him out. Technology advancements and industry procedure changes altered the structural moving and building relocation business. Changing methods from the use of manual jacks and homemade dollies to efficient hydraulic jacks utilizing a sophisticated unified jacking system, hydraulic dollies and hundreds of tons of steel beams of varying lengths to move any type of structure.
