Founded by Jorma Winkler, a serial entrepreneur, who sees a need in the market and cannot help but try to fill it.


After years of frustration with various moving companies, Jorma thought, there had to be better way.  No, make that a more "careful" way!  That's about as simple as it gets for the birth of Careful Movers Hawaii.  Primarily focused on government work to provide timely and exceptional service at a reasonable price, our goal is to provide efficient and careful service with all your personal, government or military belongings.  We understand the needs of the Federal and State government and are here to make your job as easy as possible, delivered on time, and within the budget.
