Frequently Asked Questions for Our Expert Movers

When should I book my move?

Once you know which date works with your schedule, calling ahead to book your move is the best option! When you book further in advance you have a better chance of receiving the perfect date. Since we work on a first come first served basis two weeks notice is a good place to start.

How can I pay for services provided?

Unless prior arrangements are made, payment is due at time of service. We do not accept debit or credit cards but accept cash and local personal and cashier’s checks.

Is there anything you cannot move?

For safety or security reasons we cannot move light bulbs, batteries, aerosols, gasoline, oil, lighters, matches, candles, any previously opened liquid, live plants, and open-top boxes. ALL boxes must be securely taped shut on both the top and bottom.

How should I pack my boxes?

Before packing, make sure you have the proper boxes for your items. They should be strong and sturdy. Paper should be used to protect glassware. If you have no packing materials, you can purchase them from us. Any small or non-stackable items must be packed, or they are not going to be taken by our movers. If you have further questions, view or Moving Tips Page.
