Vibration noise when well pump activates

When our well pump runs we get a loud vibration throughout the house that is more than just a little annoying. We need help in finding the source of the problem and then of course, how to fix the problem.

Is your pump in the house or is it a submersible?
Has it always been like this or is the vibration new?

The well pump is outside of the house. We have always had a vibration noise but it seems as if it's gotten louder. We did install a new holding tank a few years back.

Our house is an exterior brick and the pump line comes in through the basement joists.
