Will my belongings get damaged?
Our movers take extra special care of our client’s belongings. If you are unable to wrap or pack your delicate items, let us know. Our movers practice fragile item care on a regular basis, ensuring your mirrors, instruments, television sets, and more remain in excellent condition.

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.
