Crouch Brothers House Moving Contractors, Inc. has been in the house and structural moving business since 1923. The business was started by Marshall F. Crouch, Sr. ,who decided he did not like walking behind a plow all day and went to work at a sawmill. A local house mover offered him more money to work for him and he began learning his trade. In 1926, "MF" bought out his employer and he and his brother, GE Crouch, formed their company, Crouch Brothers House Moving Contractors, Inc. MF and GE parted ways but he kept the "Crouch Brothers" name. The business was passed on to his son, Marshall F. Crouch, Jr. and son-in-laws, Emory Stephens (retired) and Kenneth Morrow (deceased) , who have passed it onto the third generation of Marshall F. Crouch, III or better know as "Chuck." Chuck Crouch is on the jobsite, in his big, green truck and floppy hat, or guiding a house every day of the week in his efforts to continue to grow the business as his father, uncles, and grandfather did.
It has been stated that the relocation of houses and structures is the world’s largest and oldest recycling industry. Instead of adding tons of debris to the landfills, the services that are provided by structural movers prevents useless and wasteful demolition, reduces material to landfills, preserves historic structures, and provides opportunities for more people to enjoy affordable housing. It also enables generations to keep the "family home" in the family, even though the land or property has been sold.
