These answers are general in nature and you are welcome to

Q – If I get an estimate from you for moving my house will
there be any hidden or unexpected charges?
A – The answer is no, never, not with our company. We are
upfront with all of our charges and include everything into the
quoted rate so that there are no surprises at the end of the
move. This is an important fact about how we
operate over our competition. We have a reputation to
uphold that is founded upon customer satisfaction and we take
pride in honesty and integrity with every quote and move.
Q – If something happens during
the move is everything fully insured?
A – With every job we include free basic insurance. There
are other options that you can choose, but most customers
examine our reputation, professionalism, and experience and
then opt for the free insurance which covers $0.60 per pound
You may feel that your goods may be worth more than the
basic coverage and we do offer additional insurance. Costs for
additional insurance can vary and at times feel a little
expensive, especially when purchasing it through a moving
company. If you want additional insurance it is worthwhile to
check with your homeowner's insurance carrier to see if you are
already covered or if they have additional options. We always
want every customer to make the best decision and we assure you
that we are always very careful with your
belongings and that we will care and protect your
belongings to minimize any risk of potential damage.
Q – Do you have any type of guarantees for damaged
A – The most important part of this question is for us to
reassure you that we do have a very experienced and well
trained staff of careful movers. On the pre-move walk through
and with your Estimator you have the opportunity to point out
all pieces of furniture that have extra value to you or are
What we will do with these pieces is first wrap them in
blankets and then add shrink wrap, at no additional charge,
around those blankets in order to make them very well protected
and difficult to damage.
The most important part of this answer is for you to know
that your movers are careful, considerate, and well trained to
ensure the safety of your belongings. If you feel you want
extra assurance, additional insurance is available and we will
make certain you have access to any coverage that makes you
Q – How much notice do you need if I decide to use your
A – During the summer months we need at least a week or two
because the summer months are typically busy. During the off
season or winter months we can do a move with just a few days
notice. The best policy is for you to contact us as soon as you
know you need to move so that we can make certain all
accommodations are per-arranged and that we can help you
identify ways to make the move easiest on you.
Q – What items don't you move?
A – We do not move items like gasoline, propane tank or
flammables. We never want flammables in the moving truck
because they create an obvious hazard for the rest of the
items. We also recommend that you never move or pack liquids in
the items to be moved. Especially liquids such as bleach or
cleaning materials. Though it is tempting to pack these items,
they do pose a risk to the rest of the items in the truck
should any liquid, of any kind, leak out. Leaked liquids will
damage other items in the truck and you do not any liquid
touching your electronics, furniture, couches, or
Q – Can you pack the whole
house? How do you handle more fragile items?
A – Yes, we can pack the whole house. We are very flexible with
every move and will do as much or as little as you need done.
In many cases packing a whole house can double the cost of the
move and it is a decision for you to make, dependent upon how
much your time is worth to you. Our employees are fully trained
in packing and if you choose for us to pack, you can be
confident in knowing that your items will be handled with care
and packed by those with experience.
As for the fragile items we use tri-wall dish pack boxes and
bubble wrap to make certain everything is fully wrapped and
protected. These tri-wall dish packs are very strong and will
not crush nor expose your items to any risk of damage.
Q – What about disconnecting appliances and should we remove
the contents of the refrigerator?
A – We have the tools and experience to disconnect your
appliances, but if you can disconnect your own appliances that
will save moving time and money. If the moving crew is
disconnecting appliances, they are not moving and therefore the
overall time and cost of the move increases. In the end it is
your choice and we are more than capable of disconnecting
appliances should you want us to do so. The only type of
connections we do not handle are gas connections. For these it
is advisable to contact the gas company and have them handle
the disconnection prior to the move day.
As for the refrigerator it is necessary to remove the
contents. This is for two reasons, the first is because leaving
the contents in the refrigerator makes it heavier and they are
not made to be moved with the extra weight of being loaded. The
second reason is because there is no way to protect the
contents from damage during the job. For a local move, if you
want to leave a few items in the freezer to keep them frozen,
let your Estimator know and there may be a way to move it with
those few items left in the freezer.
Q – How do I prepare my plants for
A – We recommend not watering the plants for at least 7 days
before a move. This is because if you water them a few days
before the we arrive, the plants have a tendency to leak water
into the moving truck and cause damage to other items. It is
best to give the plants time to dry out and if you want to save
time, many customers will take them on their own in their own
vehicles. As with any aspect of the move, the decision is
yours. We are happy to take care of any plants you
