Frequently Asked Moving Questions
What should I do to prepare for my move?
Moving to a new home can be a stressful and challenging process. Here are some moving tips to help make your move smoother:
- Plan Ahead:
Start planning your move well in advance to ensure you have enough time to organize everything. Create a moving checklist and timeline to keep track of tasks.
Before packing, go through your belongings and get rid of items you no longer need or use. Donate, sell, or discard them. This will help reduce the number of items you need to pack and save you time and effort.
- Pack Strategically:
Pack room by room, labeling each box with its contents and the room it belongs to. Pack similar items together and use protective materials like bubble wrap or packing paper for fragile items. Don't forget to mark boxes containing delicate items as "fragile."
- Notify Utilities and Change Address:
Inform your utility providers about your move and schedule disconnections and reconnections as needed. Also, change your address with the post office, banks, subscriptions, and other important contacts.
- Pack an Essentials Box:
Pack a separate box with essential items you'll need immediately upon arrival at your new home. This can include toiletries, a change of clothes, basic kitchen supplies, and important documents.
- Take Measurements:
Before moving day, measure the doorways, hallways, and staircases in your new home to ensure your furniture will fit through them. This will save you from any surprises or difficulties when moving in.
- Arrange for Child and Pet Care:
If you have young children or pets, consider arranging for a babysitter or pet sitter on moving day. This will allow you to focus on the move without worrying about their safety and well-being.
- Pack an Overnight Bag:
Pack an overnight bag with essential items such as clothes, toiletries, medications, and chargers. This will save you from rummaging.

How do I get a quote for a move?
For the most accurate service quote, it is important that you let us know as many details about your move as possible. Some questions you should expect to answer include:
- Do you expect the move to take more than one trip with our van?
- Is your home or business on the ground level?
- Do you need help packing or unpacking your belongings?
- Are there large pieces (pianos, desks, pool tables)?
- Do you have a flexible moving schedule?
Do you bring pads and blankets to protect my furniture?
Our vans come fitted with the drop cloths and protective blankets needed to ensure your belongings remain safe during the commute from point A to B. Upon request, we will gladly provide additional blankets and packing materials for unboxed and valuable items.
Do you offer same-day moving services?
Many of our clients book our moving services far in advance. That said, there are times when we are able to offer last-minute service to those in need. To ensure you are able to book our movers for a time that suits your schedule, we advise clients to contact us 4-5 weeks prior to their moving date.
