Will the estimated price change?

If you have selected an estimate based upon a binding not to exceed price the estimate will only increase if additional services are desired. Otherwise, the total cost will not exceed the estimated amount to transport the specified items in the list.

Please advise your Relocation Specialist of any accessorial services, such as flights of stairs, elevators, extra drop-offs or pick-ups, re-delivery, storage, long carries or other services needed; as these may incur supplemental charges.

Our estimate is based upon the description of the items to be moved and the services to be performed as provided by the customer. If any additional pieces, packing services, weight, or labor services are added at the origin or destination to those quoted the customer may be charged for these services.

When will my items arrive?

When you book your move, you will let us know the desired “pick up” and “delivery” date you have selected. The delivery date you choose is considered your “first available delivery date”. Your items will arrive within a window after that date. We discuss this with you and explain this in full detail when you speak with one of our Relocation Specialists. Please call us to discuss your exact move, so that we can properly provide an estimated time frame for your move.

If you require a Guaranteed Delivery date please let your Relocation Specialist know and we will provide you with a quoted rate based on your requirements.

To get the lowest quoted price from any moving company, please be flexible with your delivery dates.

Do I have to be there on moving day?

A moving company may not pick up an interstate shipment if the customer/shipper is not present at the pick-up location to receive and sign the bill of lading, order for service, and other required legal documents.

However, the customer/shipper may designate a representative/agent to be present at the pick-up and sign the contracts on their behalf. The person receiving the items must be over the age of 18.

What are the insurance options for my items?

In most states, moving companies are prohibited by law from selling insurance policies.

As per federal regulation, you will need to select a liability option. The default carrier liability is “60 cents per pound per article”. For example, if a table that weighs 100 lbs were to sustain damage during the course of your relocation, the maximum carrier liability would be $60.


You will select an insurance liability level later, on the bill of lading (contract) for your move. Before selecting a liability level, please read “Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move,” provided by the moving company, and seek further information at the government website

What if some of my items have damage prior to pick up?

It is the customer’s responsibility to bring it to our crew’s attention of any damages upon pick up or delivery. We will make the notes on our inventory pages.

Anything else I should be prepared for?

Be prepared for this move to your new destination. Never pack any medications you or your family will need immediately. Be prepared and pack plenty of clothing for day to day activities such as work, school, personal, or seasonal.

Packing For Your Move

Should I take everything out of my dresser/drawers to transport and tape shut?

You can leave loose articles such as light jackets, blouses or linens. Do not leave any kind of perfumes/colognes or oils. And you may tape shut.

Should I label my boxes?

Yes! We do make labels for your shipment and have inventory stickers; however it is easier if the client knows which box goes where. (example: Kitchen Box 1 of 5).

Do I tape my boxes or is this included?

Tape your boxes closed, we are a full service moving company; however any materials used are not included in our price unless otherwise stated on your Order for Service.

Are you going to load/unload and disassemble / reassemble?

As stated in the Order for Service, we will load and unload. And we will disassemble and reassemble standard furniture. We will not reassemble what we did not disassemble. For safety reasons, cribs are disassembled but not reassembled.

Do you take trash bags / plastic bins?

No. Trash bags are not taken; you need to have your personal belongings in boxes. Trash bags will be placed in boxes for stacking purposes. We do allow plastic bins; however upon the stacking of furniture they are likely to break open or damage.

How should I pack my boxes?

When packing your boxes, think of stacking and transportation. Before taping a box shut ask yourself if another box can be stacked onto this one without damage.
