How We Started In 1945, Walter M. Deitz started 'Deitz Heavy Moving'- the company known today as Deitz House Moving Engineers, Inc. During WWII, Walter worked as a skilled laborer assembling aircraft engine components for a U.S. military supplier. After the war, Walter started his house moving business with a single semi. His son, Richard Deitz, started working with his father at the age of 13. This year marks owner Dick Deitz's 70th year with Deitz House Moving.
