Our intent – in every instance – is to address your needs and work as fits your schedule. This explains our offering two estimating options. Pick the most convenient for you:

  1. In-Home Consultation. One of our experienced estimators consults with you at your home to discuss your move and perform a full-house survey of the possessions you’ll need moved.
  2. Video Inventory. You’ll link to our estimator by way of your cell phone and record a video of yourself conducting a walk-through of your home as you point out what needs moving. It’s the leading edge in technological convenience!

The Written Estimate

After we’ve first met with you, taken the move options you’ve selected into account, and analyzed the results of your Home Survey, we deliver a written estimate that more specifically fixes the financial outlay required for your long-distance move.

The Pre-Move Confirmation

We have three ways to help you better cope with the necessity of packing. select the one that best addresses your needs and budget:

  1. Pack everything on your own; if you choose, we can provision you with the packing materials.
  2. Authorize our movers to help you pack.
  3. Opt for our personalized plan: you begin the packing and we assist by packing specialty items.


Our loading plan is simple, methodical, safe, and effective:

  • Truck and crew arrive.
  • Crew introduce themselves.
  • Crew does a walk-through of your home to get the “lay of the land” and the items they’ll be moving out.
  • Crew readies home to protect it: stair railings, cramped corners, doors and doorjamb are padded; carpets are covered to keep high-traffic areas from getting snagged and soiled.
  • Moving boxes are labeled and inventoried by room, taking into account your needs on arrival at your new home.
  • Things such as beds, entertainment centers, and swing sets are meticulously broken down for transport.
  • Quality checks are performed during the loading process.
  • Communication also is maintained with your Move Concierge.


At your new home we’re equally protective and methodical in unloading and placing your possessions.

  • We make use of padding and carpet covers to safeguard you new home from any move-in damage.
  • We methodically unload your household goods and personal effects in the rooms you tell us to place them.
  • We put back together items we disassembled for the move.
  • If you need us to unpack items for you, just notify us and we’ll handle it.
  • We can, if you like, also get rid of all the empty boxes and packing debris when your move is finished.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
