Chris Knowles


Originally from the state of Georgia, Chris got his start in the moving industry in high school when he began working part-time for a local moving company. He continued to work for the same moving company throughout college, all while working toward a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. It was during this time that he first held the dream of one day owning his own company. After college, Chris accepted a job in corporate sales for a Fortune 500 Company. Though he was climbing the corporate ladder, Chris never forgot his dream of business ownership. Ultimately, after much soul-searching, he realized that his passions lied with building his own brand—not working toward someone else’s dream. Thus, True Friends Moving Company was born. With equal parts hard work and commitment, the company has grown to be one of the area’s top movers, recognized by Angie’s List and others.

  • Inside the Office: Chris is in charge of all day-to-day operations, from networking to sales. He also oversees our various departments, including billing, payroll, human resources, and move preparation.
