Step 1: Preparing for your moving day.
If you chose to pack all your boxes yourself, you would have all your boxes ready by the morning of the move day for us to start loading into our trucks. It would be recommended to have your belongings staged as close to a door as possible or even in your garage if you have one. We understand every situation is different, whether you live in an apartment, townhome, or multi-family home, we’ll make it work. If you have special items that are fragile, valuable, or need special care, it would be recommended that you let our movers know so proper precautions are taken. Please note we do not move or transport any hazardous materials that are combustible and create a health risk. We do not move firewood, fuel, propane, guns, ammo, or any yard equipment that has not been drained of any fuel or oil.


Step 2: Moving Day
On moving day, we will show up with our trucks and crew moving your belongings to their new destination safely. Our trucks will be equipped with the following:

  • Moving blankets
  • Shrink wrap
  • Appliance dollies
  • Floor runners (floor protection)
  • Four wheel dolly
  • Tool kit
  • Moving straps
  • Boxes

Our crew will arrive and start disassembling the furniture that needs to be then wrapping all your belongings in moving blankets and shrink wrap. Once that is done they will start moving everything into our trucks. Once the truck is full, all your belongings will be safely strapped down to ensure a smooth ride to your new home. Once we arrive at the new location, we will begin to unload everything in the location desired. Everything will be unwrapped and assembled.


Step 3: Completing the Move
After everything is unloaded and assembled, we will finalize the bill and submit payment, then we will follow up with any concerns you may have had during the move. We offer storage services for long-term and short-term needs, just ask your sales rep about our rates and we will accommodate your every need.
