In 1952, Earl Piepho, together with his wife Elaine, opened the doors of Piepho Moving & Storage in Albert Lea, MN. Earl cashed in a life insurance policy he purchased when he was twelve to buy their first three trucks. Only two of the trucks made the journey from Minneapolis to Albert Lea, but the two trucks formed the first fleet of Piepho Moving & Storage.
Earl and Elaine created a culture of honesty and reliability, gaining a reputation as a high quality mover focused on providing excellent customer service. Through hard work and integrity, they expanded Piepho Moving & Storage to Rochester, MN in 1970; Mankato, MN in 1975; La Crosse, WI in 1981; and Eagan, MN in 1986.
Throughout the company's history, Earl and Elaine's children, Lawrence, Kirk, Jeffrey, Mary, Mark, and Kathryn, worked alongside their parents to grow the business. Today, Jeff owns and manages Piepho Moving & Storage with the help of his son Colin. Nearly 100 other team members join Jeff and Colin to build upon Earl and Elaine's legacy of providing the best possible experience for each customer every day.
