Common Questions About Our Moving Services
A: Yes. Clothing is fine to leave in dresser drawers. Please remove other small items like remotes, trinkets etc.
A: Yes, no extra charge beyond the hourly rate. Baby grand pianos and sometimes upright/player pianos require our piano board and possibly an extra man depending on the circumstance, so please let us know in advance if you have these items so we can be prepared.
A: Yes, we offer competitive rates for moves in the Midwest all the way south to Florida and eastward to the Atlantic. For longer-distance moves Westward to California or Oregon, we can help you to strategize the best way to affordably move your belongings. (See below)
A: Yes. We move gun safes. We have a specialized hydraulic dolly capable of moving a safe up to 1,100 pounds up or down stairs (if the stairs are ready for it).
A: Yes. Call us to discuss loading your UDistance, Penske, Enterprise rental truck, and ABF container. We typically send a crew in our panel van equipped with dollies, tools, and pads for protecting your home. *You must provide your own pads for your rental truck and adequate strapping (nylon rope is fine) to tie down furniture safely.
A: Yes. As in the section about rental trucks above, we send out a crew with dollies, tools, and pads for doing internal work within your home or office.
A: Yes. We can do this. We have a minimum 2-hour charge (inclusive of drive time), but many customers find that our rates are affordable for this type of work.
A: For liability reasons and to maintain our insurance policy, we do not move gasoline, liquid chemicals, paints, propane, ammunition, guns (rifle or handgun), explosives, live animals, partially filled aquariums, or hot tubs.
A: Generally, we start to book out two weeks in advance, particularly on Friday and Saturday. There is no fast rule to our availability, but often the beginning and end of the month fill up quickly, so call in to check on availability.

A: Good question and a multi-part answer:
#1. The most effective way to save time and money on moving day is to be properly packed up. Condense smaller objects into larger, and, ideally, uniformly sized boxes and label them simply and clearly.
#2. Decide beforehand what goes and what stays, and have a rough idea of where you want things to be placed in the new home. Color-coded labelings, such as getting a colorful pack of post-it notes or colored tape, are a great and simple way to label your items to ensure the guys put your furniture and boxes in the proper location without having to ask your guidance too often.
If you are not sure where you want some furniture or boxes, having the guys put it in the garage or a designated staging area is a good way to keep things flowing while you have time to think. We are always happy to move things around and help reorganize at the end of the unload to give you a head start into feeling comfortable in your new home.
#3. Mention all items that will go at the beginning of the job when the crew arrives. Overlooking the attic, basement storage, back patio furniture, or other ‘surprise' closets/rooms can throw off the fluidity of the pack job and delay loading.
#4. Disassemble beds and other furniture yourself if you have the will and energy. It is a common part of our job, and we are capable and are not bothered by doing these tasks, but they do take time.
#5. Consider moving a handful of selected fragile items, like ornate lamp shades, heirloom statuettes, and family photographs, in your personal vehicle. This saves the packer considerable time wrapping, securing, and working around fragile and easily damaged objects. For long-distance moves, have these items securely and safely packed and ready to go.
Thank You, and Have a Happy Move!
