Q: Should I do all the packing prior to moving, or do you offer packing services, or partial packing services?
A: We offer a couple of options that include: Our Fragile Pack, which usually entails kitchen items, dining room items, pictures, and things that are fragile and easily breakable.

Q: Do you still move in inclement weather?
A: We almost always do, however, on moving estimates done in the winter; we do add information on winter conditions. If, in the unlikely event there is a blizzard or it is extremely hazardous on the roadways, we might have to postpone your move, or the estimate might be a bit higher, due to the fact of having to go a bit slower for safety reasons. This will always be spelled out in your contract.

A: We prep everything and make sure all your furniture is wrapped prior to the move.

A: We will not disassemble or reassemble electronic equipment or reassemble it, however, as long as it is boxed, we’ll move it.

Q: Do I need to empty my dresser drawers and filing cabinets for the move?
A:  No, we tell our customers they can leave drawers in place. The only exception might be if a filing cabinet is really large and heavy.

Q: Is there a better day or time to schedule a move?
A: Not for us! Some companies have weekend rates but we don’t do that. Our rate is a standard rate from Sunday - Saturday (daytime hours). Please Note: Night rates calculated at time and a half.

A: No, our insurance does not cover anyone other than our employees.
