Matt’s Moving LLC Acquires Ruth Movers Inc

Family owned and operated for 60 years – across 3 generations – Ruth’s Movers Inc. was a staple in the Twin Cities moving business.
Known mostly in the Twin Cities as a Piano Moving Company, however MOST of Ruth’s Movers business came from commercial and residential moving, as well as short term storage for their customers.

Janie Roslin acquired the business in 1960. John has 8 brothers and sisters. For many years Janie and John’s dad ran the business. When Janie Passed away she left the business to different family members. Manny (from Manny’s Moving) had married Janie’s daughter and had started a Piano Moving business  before Janie Passed. Many members of the family worked between the two companies over the years. 

In 2013 John Sr, passed the business on to John Jr. who then rebranded it as Ruth Movers Inc. to focus more on commercial and residential moves. 

Fun Facts:

  • The name Ruth was actually a combination of the original owners’ initials –  there was never anybody named Ruth
  • They were affiliated with several Non-Profits in the TC area such as Move for Hunger
  • Moved several historic projects such as Ralph Shoe Store out of the Southdale Mall
  • Volunteer at the MTSA events and donate services for Second Hand Harvest
  • Commercial projects with Lupient Auto, Star Tribune, Yamaha Events, MusicWorld, and more
  • Moved celebrities such Prince at Paisley Park, Lorie Line, various Minnesota Twins and Timberwolves players

Storage Accounts have been taken over by Ace Midwest in Coon Rapids. Please contact them directly for any storage related concerns.

This would be the 6th Acquisition Matt’s Moving has made in the last 11 years including:

  • RJ’s Moving
  • Rent Joe Boxes
  • Above The Crowd
  • Master Movers
  • Pro Move Storage

The acquisition came as an economic result of COVID-19, and a desire from the owners to spend more time with family that lives out of state. We at Matt’s feel we’ll continue to embody everything that Ruth’s Movers Inc. stood for, and we look forward to continuing their legacy under the Matt’s Moving LLC umbrella.
