Frequently Asked Questions
Why hire professional movers?
When It comes to local moving, the do it yourself approach is very popular, because it might seem like you can save money. But some tasks are better left to professionals. Think about it, do you have a group of reliable friends that can safely lift heavy furniture, like a 200-pound armoire? Also, you will still have to rent the moving truck in order to transport all of your items, regardless of the distance between your current and new home. With a moving company, you get movers with the truck, specialized moving equipment, wrapping and padding materials and insurance – everything already included in the price. You will get the team of professionals who will safely and efficiently move all of your sentimental and valuable belongings.
Where to find movers?
