Top 3 Lake Minnetonka Moving Companies

24 kilometers away from Minneapolis, Minnesota lies an inland lake which is known to be Minnesota’s ninth largest lake and is among the most popular among fishermen, boatmen, and recreation enthusiasts. In the 1700s, Lake Minnetonka was frequented by people who would hunt, fish, and collect maple syrup. By the 1800s, more people travelled to the lakeside towns, building houses and boarding houses. Soon, it was known as a resort town, where hotels with 400 guest rooms would be filled with visitors hailing from places such as Texas and Tennessee.

Today, Lake Minnetonka is still a favorite among boatmen, but instead of steamboats, sailboats and speedboats of all shapes and sizes now inhabit its waters. It is still a favored tourist spot, however many people choose to remain and live in this seaside haven. In the winter the lake offers its residents and visitors the unusual experience of ice fishing and in the summer everyone enjoys its beaches, sailing, and recreational parks.

There are several communities surrounding the lake: Deephaven, Excelsior, Long Lake, Minnetonka Beach, Minnetrista, Orono, Shorewood, Spring Park, Tonka Bay, and Wayzata. Communities within 2 miles of the lake include Chanhassen, Plymouth, and Minnetonka.

In 2010, there were 21,901 households and 13,619 families living in the city of Minnetonka. There were 23,294 housing units at an average density of 865.0 per square mile (334.0/km2) and according to the census, 49,734 people lived here. As of 2015, population estimates have risen to 51,669, reflecting about a 4% increase in the population in the last five years.


In a study done by Ms. Maggie Salter last 2012 entitled Design Thinking and Minnetonka’s Future, 56 respondents were asked, “Why did you move to Minnetonka?” (and if they had never moved away, why did they choose to stay). Various answers included: to be closer to aging parents, the high quality of education that is offered in Minnetonka, wanting to get away from the city, its close proximity to their workplace, the sheer beauty of the town, and some said they were fortunate to find reasonably priced homes or condos in great neighborhoods.


Moving is not an easy task to do. Packing in itself is quite difficult, having to sort things to keep, throw away, or donate.   And once you are done choosing which ones to keep, the next task is to make sure that all the things can move with you. This is where reliable and careful movers come into play.
