Before Move Day
How can I reduce the time of my move as it is calculated in the estimate?
To save time we recommend reducing the amount of miscellaneous items needed to transport to and from the truck by packing as much as possible.
Consolidating boxes and furniture to the same area is another great way to ensure the movers can ‘grab-n-go’.
Dis/reassembling your own furniture also cuts down time, as it is included in the hourly rate.
Can I help load and unload the truck?
Our policies do not allow clients on the truck, and we are not liable for a client’s injuries during the move. Our goal is to totally relieve you of the duties of move day. However if you insist on helping the crew, the best time is during the load when you can consolidate your items together for easier access.
How will I know the moving crew is on the way?
The crew will call or text you their ETA. You will also receive an emailed notification.
Can I ride with the crew to the next location?
We cannot transport our customers, our insurance covers household goods and crew members. We recommend scheduling a ride on move day if you are without transportation.
Do I need to be present during the move?
You do not need to be present during the move. However, we need a point of contact to verify access to any pick-up/drop-off locations, on-site signatures to confirm our service, and a method of payment to process after the service is complete.
When do I pay for my service?
All services require a $100 security deposit to book, which goes towards the total payment. You can pay the total at any time before, during, or directly after the job is completed.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept all major credit/debit cards, cash, check, Venmo, and CashApp.
Will I receive a receipt?
You will receive your receipt via email after we’ve received the final payment to close your invoice.
