What are the most important qualities to look for in a moving company?

A reputable moving company will provide you with a free in-home estimate and will offer a variety of services, including pick up, delivery, packing and unpacking, crating, appliance servicing and special handling.

How far in advance should I schedule my move?
You should schedule your move as soon as you have determined a firm date.

What day/date is best to move?
Moves are performed during any day of the week. However, moving during the last week/weekend of the summer months are typically the busiest.

Do you pack and/or supply materials and boxes?
Yes, we do provide complete packing services. On pack day, your packing crew will use professional packing materials such as clean, recyclable Kraft paper, micro foam, boxes and specialized cartons to ensure your belongings are well protected.

How long does it take to move?
Many factors affect the length of time it takes for a shipment to travel from origin to destination, including distance, weight of the shipment, Safety Code regulations, Customs, weather, road conditions and/or ferry crossings. Please allow for extra time and be flexible when planning your move.
